Call Of Duty Mobile Controller Support: Everything We Know So Far
Call of Duty Mobile controller support was originally included in the game at launch. Unfortunately, if you want to Call of Duty mobile with a full controller to gain an added edge in regular deathmatches or battle royale, you are in for a bit of a wait.
As a free-to-play game, Call Of Duty: Mobile may lure in the fanbase no longer interested in earlier iterations or who don't want to drop $60 on Modern Warfare just for multiplayer. Just expect some hiccups along the way.
A controller layout page was originally included in the settings menu for most players, indicating you should be able to play this with a Bluetooth or USB controller but unfortunately, no such page currently exists.
That page has now been taken down for the majority of U.S. and U.K. players.
As it turns out, tests are currently running in limited regions for Bluetooth controller support. However, controllers won't be officially supported for a little while longer. Neither Activision nor Tencent have provided a timeframe.
Want to see if you are in one of those areas running the test? Tap the Settings cog icon at the top of the main screen, then scroll all the way over to the right through the tabs at the top.
If you see "Controller" instead of "Other," then congrats, you might be able to test out a Bluetooth controller, just don't expect it to work well at the moment.
I was able to get the GameSir G6 Touchroller to connect to Call Of Duty: Mobile on my iPhone 8 and some buttons even worked, although the connection isn't stable enough and doesn't work properly to play a full match. At best, I can limp through menus skipping every second or third option, but there's no precision of any kind with the joystick or buttons.
Expect more info and eventually a patch addressing the controller info in the near future, and get to fragging with normal phone screen controls for now!
