Call of Duty Mobile settings and performance optimization Guide

Call of Duty Mobile is the latest and most played battle royale on a mobile device in 2019. With its massive player base and engaging content and free-to-play service, it has taken the title of the best game of 2019. It has quickly become the favorite of all mobile gamers who felt PUBG mobile was lacking.

Not everyone has a high-end device, So many people face issues such as lag and low FPS in-game. For killing enemies and getting easy wins increasing call of duty, mobile performance is a must. So check out our recommended Call of Duty Mobile settings.

Warning: Using automated tools to change graphics and textures is risky. Activision and Call of Duty Mobile have been banning many players depending on which tool they use. I don’t recommend using any apps or scripts.

Call of Duty Mobile Performance Guide For Best Settings

Three settings can be changed for increasing the performance and FPS of Call of Duty Mobile. I will explain every one of them below.

1) Device Settings

For android devices, I have made a guide for making phones faster for gaming.

It covers all the general points so I will not explain those. But if your device has a game mode or a boost mode included by default, then make sure you use it. I cannot stress that enough. On some devices, it is called performance mode. Make sure you enable this before playing Call of Duty Mobile.

The best solution for those who do not have game mode is to use this app called Game mode. It is recommended by XDA and works pretty well.

Note: For those facing network issues and high ping go to your device Settings and Disable background Data. It will be available in your network settings. The location will vary depending on the device model. You can do it via the Game Mode app as well.

2) Gameplay Settings

Unlike PUBG Mobile, Call of Duty Mobile, Graphics settings is pretty well optimized. To set them for more gameplay advantage, I recommend the following changes.

Graphics Settings

Graphic Quality: Low

This will improve your FPS and give you a gameplay advantage of moving and killing faster. Lag-free gaming is the key to getting kills!

Framerate: Max

The higher the framerate, the better. It will make the game as smooth as possible. Perfect for spotting enemies and quick kills.

Depth of Field: Off

This is not useful for mobile games. Best to just turn it off.

Ragdoll: Off

It only lowers the FPS and gives no real Gameplay advantage.

Bloom: Off

It does nothing more than giving out special light effects that can cause issues while spotting enemies. It also lowers FPS.

Anti Aliasing: Off

No real benefits to a mobile game. Save the processor power and battery instead by turning it off.

Real-Time Shadows: Off

Not required for the Call of Duty Mobile game. It will only add extra performance overhead and lag.

Audio settings

Music: Off

  • Shadows should be left on because it gives a competitive advantage because you can sometimes see enemy shadow before they come around corner. Have to set medium graphics settings for shadow to turn on.

    • True but the pros of disabling them are more. Especially for low-end devices. Also shows come into picture if you have a big screen for example tablets or if you are playing on an emulator. Only then you will get a chance to take advantage of the shadow.

  • Thanks. Will try your tips. Had 1 or 2 crashes each game since start of season 13. Samsung tab S7+ so hardly performance related. But. Played 2 games low graphics low framerate and no crash. Unayable though. Will use max frames and medium graphics with Shadows. Keep the fingers crossed it fixes the crashes.
