Call of Duty Mobile opened beta access in India a couple of days back, and so far the game looks pretty damn amazing. However, since the developers are rolling out access invites to only some people at a time, chances are you’ve not received access to the game from the Play Store yet. That’s what happened with me as well. However, if you really want to try the game out, you can do that pretty easily. So, here’s how to install and play Call of Duty Mobile on any Android phone.
Install Call of Duty Mobile on Any Android Phone
Installing the CoD game on your phone is actually a pretty easy task. There’s not a lot to do, but for the sake of clarity I’ll explain everything in detail.
- First up, download the Call of Duty Mobile APK from APK Mirror.
- Next, head over to this link, and download the ZIP file. This is the OBB file you need to run the game on your phone.
- Once you’ve downloaded both the files, unzip the ZIP file you downloaded in the last step, and extract the folder to “Android/obb” using the file manager of your choice. I’ve used Solid File Explorer for this, but the default File Manager might also work if it supports unzipping files.
- Install the Call of Duty Mobile APK you downloaded in the first step.
You can now run the game on your phone. You can either log in with your Facebook account, or play the game as a guest.
Note: Keep in mind that the game is in beta, and all your progress in the game will be wiped once the game actually launches, so don’t get too attached to the stuff you unlock in the game.
If you’re in a country where the beta isn’t live yet, you can use a VPN app and VPN to India in order to run the game. I haven’t tried this method since the beta is live in India and I was able to run it by default on my phone, but using a VPN is your best bet to run the game outside of India.
Play Call of Duty Mobile Right Now
So that’s pretty much it, you can simply follow these steps to install and play Call of Duty Mobile on your Android smartphone without having to wait for the developers to roll out beta access for your account. Keep in mind that you may encounter network errors sometimes, and since the game is in beta, the servers might also be taken offline for maintenance regularly (this actually happened two days ago), so just be patient. Also, let us know if the game worked for you outside of India with a VPN, and how your experience with the game has been so far.
