How To Play Cod Mobile On PC With a Controller

If you want to get an edge over others in COD Mobile, you can hook up a controller with your phone and step up your game. Having an external controller means your hands don't obstruct the screen to access the controls, and hence you'll have a better field of view.

If you've ever played any Call of Duty game on console, you'll feel right at home while playing COD Mobile with an external controller.

Which controllers work with Call of Duty Mobile?

Activision officially supports PS4 and Xbox One controllers on Call of Duty mobile. So if you've got any one of those two controllers, you're already a step ahead of the game. However, just note that Activision does not support the first generation of PS4 controllers.

As of launch, only official DUALSHOCK 4 PlayStation 4 and official Xbox One controllers can be used to play Call of Duty: Mobile. All versions of official PS4 controllers except first-generation controllers are supported.

If you've got any other Bluetooth controller, they may work perfectly, have a few functionality issues, or may not work at all. Most of the high-quality 3rd party controllers are mapped to the Xbox One controller, so if you can connect one of those with your phones, chances are they will work almost perfectly in Call of Duty mobile.

Additional controller support may be available in future updates, but for now, players using a non-supported controller may experience issues with functionality.

So far, Activision has not added official support for PS5's Dual Sense or Xbox Series S/X's controller, but that should be coming along in a future update.

How to connect a controller with CoD Mobile on iOS?

How to connect a controller with CoD Mobile on Android?

  • Head over settings and tap on Bluetooth and Device connection. Click on Bluetooth to access advanced settings.
  • Enable pairing on your controller. This is done by holding the Share and PS button at the same time on a PS4 controller, or the Xbox and sync button on an Xbox One controller.
  • Enable Bluetooth on your mobile device (usually done through settings).
  • Within Bluetooth settings, locate “wireless controller” and connect to that device.
  • Open Call of Duty: Mobile and enable “Allow to use controller” in the Controller settings menu (note: you may see the below screenshot while your controller is connecting, or if your controller isn’t paired yet).
  • Set and modify your controls for each game type.

And now you're all set to blasting your foes in CoD mobile. It's worth noting that the controller only works in-game, and not in lobby or settings. You'll still have to use touch controls there, which makes it a wee bit annoying but the smooth and seamless experience in-game makes you forgive its shortcomings.
