Call of Duty: Mobile’s default controls are fairly easy to get to grips with, but our guide will help you optimise success like the game’s top players.

We’ve been getting seriously into COD: Mobile’s various modes, but sometimes it doesn’t feel like we’ve got the control scheme and settings quite right. Thankfully, the game’s top players have shared their tactics for the rest of us to learn from.

What are the best settings on Call of Duty: Mobile?

iFerg is the number 1 ranked player on the game at time of writing. Mercifully, he’s got a YouTube channel showing us all the best strategies for the game, including his settings. We’ve put the source video below for your convenience, and we’d recommend checking out more of his content.

Best Call of Duty: Mobile Basic Settings

When playing COD: Mobile, you’ll want to keep Aim Assist turned on, as well as Quick Run, Fixed r-fire, and Joystick Auto-Sprint. They’re all shortcuts to making the game feel better to play, so you might as well turn them on. No one is going to shout at you for using Aim Assist, don’t worry.

Tap to ADS is ideal too, as you don’t have to hold down a button to aim down your gun’s sights, freeing up other fingers for other actions.

Display Left Fire Button can be kept on too, as it offers that little bit extra flexibility when you’re navigating around with your right hand. Tap crouch while sprinting to slide is far more convenient than the alternative, and you can keep your sprinting sensitivity at 65. A Camera FOV of 60 feels natural to play with too, so only tweak this if you’re really struggling.

Best Customised Shooting Modes for Call of Duty: Mobile

Holding down the ‘shoot’ button will make you aim down the sights, but you can customise this so it's different for each weapon type. This allows you to hip fire more freely if you don’t want to aim down your weapon’s scope every single time you shoot, and use the dedicated button to ADS.

The settings are best arranged as follows, with Sniper Rifles using the setting to make it easier to quick scope:

  • Assault Rifles: Hip
  • SMGs: Hip
  • Shotguns: Hip
  • LMGs: Hip
  • Sniper Rifles: ADS
  • Pistols: Hip

Best HUD for Call of Duty: Mobile

iFerg uses an iPad to play Call of Duty: Mobile, so the HUD settings detailed here are mostly only applicable if you are also able to spread your buttons out over that extra real estate. You’ll need six fingers to use the HUD recommended by iFerg, and we’ve put a screenshot of the ideal configuration below.

Here’s how your hands should be positioned when using this setup:

  • Left thumb on crouch button.
  • Left index finger to move/sprint
  • Left middle finger to jump and knife
  • Right thumb to shoot
  • Right index finger to aim
  • Right middle finger to reload/scope (ADS)

Best sensitivity settings for Call of Duty: Mobile Multiplayer

To find the sensitivity menu, click the cog icon at the top of the main menu screen and navigate to ‘sensitivity’ on the top bar.

iFerg uses the Fixed Speed setting, as it allows you more control over your character’s movement. Fixed Speed makes you predictable in movement, whilst the Acceleration settings cause you to spin at a faster rate inconsistently.

The camera sensitivities used by iFerg are as follows:

  • Standard sensitivity: 60
  • ADS sensitivity: 88
  • Tactic scope sensitivity: 129
  • Sniper scope sensitivity: 80

The firing sensitivities used by iFerg are as follows:

  • Standard sensitivity: 70
  • ADS sensitivity: 88
  • Tactic scope sensitivity: 120
  • Sniper scope sensitivity: 80

Best sensitivity settings for Call of Duty: Mobile Battle Royale

Battle Royale mode has a separate sensitivity menu to Multiplayer. Here are the settings used by iFerg, although he does claim to be more into the Multiplayer mode so has not made very big changes to the defaults.

Camera sensitivity:

  • Third person sensitivity: 80
  • FPP view turning sensitivity: 65
  • Optics: 90
  • Tactic scope sensitivity: 80
  • 3x tactical scope: 60
  • 4x tactical scope: 50
  • Sniper scope sensitivity: 45

Firing sensitivity:

  • Third person sensitivity: 80
  • FPP view turning sensitivity: 65
  • Optics: 90
  • Tactic scope sensitivity: 80
  • 3x tactical scope: 60
  • 4x tactical scope: 50
  • Sniper scope sensitivity: 45

Battle Royale Vehicle Settings

In the Battle Royale game mode, you’ll be able to hop into vehicles to traverse the map more quickly. There are a few different ways to control the Battle Royale’s vehicles, but layout A is the simplest to use, offering a simple way to go forward, backward, left and right.

That’s all for our guide on the best settings for Call of Duty: Mobile! Check out our COD: Mobile guide hub if you’re looking for more helping hands with the game, including our weapon tier list and details of the available maps.
