In Free Fire, players can choose certain skins before beginning a game, unlike in COD Mobile, players choose the gun blueprint during the match. Whether Epic, Legendary, or Mythic, players can equip the weapon blueprint through arsenal airdrops.

They can also use the gunsmith to alter a base weapon before a game.

3) Grenades

Throwables are an important component of any battle royale shooter, which is why they’re present in both COD Mobile and Free Fire. The distinction is in the grenade’s diversity and possibilities.

COD Mobile takes a realistic approach, with almost all grenades having a realistic approach. Frag, Smoke, Concussion, Nova Gas, Cluster, and many other lethal and tactical choices may be found in BR. Free Fire, on the other hand, lacks the same level of variation and realism as COD Mobile. The grenades in Free Fire, on the other hand, are more defensive in nature, and you can utilize Gloo Walls, Smoke, Flashbang, Decoy, and so on.

4) Modes and maps

Players can play BR mode in three maps in COD Mobile: Isolated, Blackout, and Alcatraz. Isolated and Blackout are both permanent and have a lot of space, however Alcatraz is only a jail on the island with a different gameplay than basic BR.

Furthermore, the Alactraz map/mode is not a permanent option because it appears in the game for a limited time practically every season. Apart from Alcatraz, other modes such as BR Blitz, Tank Battle, Warfare, and Sniper Only are available in COD mobile for a week or more each season.

Free Fire, on the other hand, does not have as many battle royale varieties as conventional battle royale. However, there are four BR maps to chose from: Bermuda, Purgatory, Bermuda Remastered, and Kalahari.

Vehicles are essential for getting about when trying to get out of the blue zone. In addition, if the player has accurate driving skills, they can claim kills with a vehicle by running over the enemy.

With the exception of the Amphibious Motorcycle, which may be deployed to water bodies, most vehicles in Free Fire are limited to roads. COD Mobile, on the other hand, offers a wider range of vehicles, including helicopters, trucks, boats, tanks, and more.
