PUBG Mobile Game Modes:
In classic mode the players have the option to choose between Third Person Perspective (TPP) or the more realistic First Person Perspective (FPP).
In this mode we have the option to land on an isolated island of our choice including Erangel (The Urban and the very first map), Miramar (The Desert Map), Sanhok (The Tropical Forest Map) and the latest addition Vikendi (The Snow Map). We have to compete with other 99 players and eliminate them to get the Chicken Dinner.
This mode is basically for the practicing of your skills and has only 25 players per match. In arcade mode we get the option to choose among Sniper Training in which you can improve your sniping skills, Quick Match in which you get a random weapon be it a Shotgun, Assault Rifle, Pistol or Melee weapon. The third mode under the Arcade mode is the Mini Zone in which you have half the map to play with around 50 players.
In Zombie mode there are two options to choose from namely Survive Till Dawn and Darkest Night. Both have there own perks and needs totally different strategy to survive.
Training Ground: Apart from all the modes above, PUBG Mobile also provides you with a training ground where you have access to every single weapon, vehicle, throw-able and everything else that you get in all four maps combined. Here you can improve your sniping. Make your aim better. Learn to control different guns and make your driving better.
All the above modes can be played in Solo, Duo where you have a friend along with you or Squad in which you are in group of four people to play the match. Training ground is an exception which does not allow you to enter with your friends and you must be solo.
Call of Duty Mobile Game Modes:
The simple mode is quite fun to play only if you are lazy enough and do not want to tap the fire button. In this mode all you have to do is simply point your gun towards your enemy and the game will do the rest for you. As soon as you point your gun on an enemy it will start firing automatically until and unless the enemy is out of your cross-hair sight. Without any fire button it sure sounds fun to play but it is not. The aiming in this mode is very poor and the recoil of your gun is uncontrollable. You have the option to set the distance on which your gun start firing automatically when an enemy is in your guns cross-hair aim.
Advanced mode offers you a much better and refined experience as compared to the simple mode. In this mode you have all your traditional controls including. Here no auto firing is enable and you have to do everything on your own. From aiming, shooting to moving precisely it is becomes quite challenging and enjoyable. You can set up everything yourself and fine tune the controls that best suits you.

We all are aware of the fact that Battle Royale is what’s the much hyped mode of Call of Duty Mobile. Similar to the leader PUBG Mobile, Call of Duty Mobile is aiming to provide a much similar experience. In Call of Duty Mobile we have 100 players fighting for the top position. The only difference between the two is the number of maps and the inclusion of “Roles” in the Call of Duty Mobile.

PUBG Mobile vs Call of Duty Mobile : Maps
PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty Mobile both have a number of maps which provide a totally unique experience to the players. On one side where PUBG Mobile has four totally different maps based on different regions, weather modes and locations. On the other hand Call of Duty has came up with three times the number of maps of PUBG Mobile that is twelve.
PUBG Mobile Maps
Erangel is the map that every PUBG Mobile player has played as it was the only map at the time of release. The very first map featuring a near urban location experience. It also includes some of the hugely popular locations including the most infamous Pochinki.
The second map to join the PUBG Mobile was the desert map, Miramar. Based on a desert with barren land and little to no spots to go prone. With high mountains, dense cities and barren land, all makes this map quite challenging for the players.
The third addition to the game was the Sanhok map. This map was totally the opposite of Miramar and is based on a tropical forest location. With greenery all over, random rain, thick fogs and other hiding spots makes this map a heaven for stealth lovers and snipers.
Th latest addition to the game is Vikendi aka the snow map. If we compare it with Miramar, there is not much of a difference. Instead of sand they have put snow all over the map. Though the locations are all different. This map also has a snowmobile which can only be found in Vikendi.
