Best Multiplayer Mobile Shooter Games
Apex Legends: Mobile
Apex Legends Mobile is the newest addition to the multiplayer FPS genre on mobile platforms. The game runs real smooth on Android and iOS while offering an incredible fast-paced battle royale experience.
This game is quite popular on PC and consoles and it finally got a mobile version that lets you team up with 2 other players to play BR matches. It lets you choose from hero characters with special abilities as well. So it’s different from most other BR games on mobile.
Call of Duty: Mobile
Call of Duty mobile is right now the most popular shooter available on mobile platforms. It has the coolest guns and the most satisfying gameplay mechanics of any mobile game.
I’ve played COD with my friends for a long time. But lately, the game started getting a bit Pay-to-Win so I switched to PUBG. But still, it’s one of the best games out there.
PUBG Mobile is not the same as it was before. The realism is long gone and you’ll see lots of players running around in bunny costumes in the game. But the game can be super fun to play with friends.
In a recent update, Godzilla and King Kong arrived in the game terrorizing the maps. Yes, it’s a bit ridiculous but the game has great gameplay mechanics.
PUBG: New State
The new version of PUBG was an instant hit in 2021. While some players still prefer the old PUBG Mobile, New State has plenty of cool things that will get you hooked instantly.
For starters, New State features upgraded visuals with new combat and movement system. It’s not completely different from PUBG Mobile so if you’re a veteran player you’ll feel right at home in this game.
Standoff 2 is basically CS:GO on mobile. It has the same game modes and gameplay mechanics as the popular tactical shooter.
If you’re tired of playing the same battle royale games, this should offer a fresh perspective.
If you ever get tired of COD and PUBG, Modern Ops is a good alternative you can try out. It has sort of CS:GO vibes.
I played it for a while and eventually went back to PUBG.
Guns of Boom
Guns of Boom is multiplayer shooter that doesn’t take itself too seriously. It has fun events and cool weapons you can try out as you level up.
The game was fun but once you reach a certain level, it gets heavily pay to win and you’ll get destroyed by players who buy more powerful weapons. The game is super fun though.
The mobile version of Fortnite is not available on the official app store or Google Play stores. You can download it from here.
I haven’t played the mobile version of Fortnite but thousands of people play this game and it should be just as fun as the console game. Give it a try.
Best Mobile Strategy Games
Clash of Clans
If you’re into base building and planning attacks, this game is perfect for you.
Clash of Clans is a fun game where you can build, upgrade, and attack player bases to level up. The game is more fun when you setup a clan with your friends and go on clan wars.
League of Legends: Wild Rift
The official League of Legends mobile game is still in its early beta testing phase. It’s currently available in the US and will be rolling out to other regions soon.
This is one of the best MOBA games you can play with your friends. Keep it wishlisted.
This one is for fans of the Witcher series. Gwent is a deck-building game inspired by the mini-game from Witcher 3.
This game requires careful planning and strategy. It’s fun to play with your friends too.
War Alliance combines elements from several genres like strategy and MOBAs. It’s similar to clash royale but this game gives you more control over your heroes.
Best Mobile MMO Games
Despite the backlash from players, Diablo Immortal is a very enjoyable game that you can play with friends. It lets you do raids, dungeons, and lots of other activities as a team.
The combat, boss fights, and the dungeons in Diablo Immortal are designed really well to offer a console-quality experience on your mobile device. It doesn’t feel like a mobile game at all.
Black Desert Mobile
Black Desert Mobile is an MMORPG that has incredible graphics and gameplay. The game has a crazy character creator and an awesome combat system that you’ll never get tired of.

Best Mobile Racing Games
Rocket League Sideswipe
Rocket League is now available on mobile platforms. Well, at least a version of it.

For basketball fans, you won’t find a better game on mobile than NBA Live. It’s also one of the top-rated sports games on mobile.
EA SPORTS UFC
The official UFC mobile game also comes from EA and it features pretty amazing gameplay mechanics that will make you feel like you’re right inside the octagon.
Best Multiplayer Mobile Farming Games
If you’re a fan of farming games like Animal Crossing or Stardew Valley, Pocket Pioneers is a game you must try out. It’s like a free version of Animal Crossing on Android and iOS.
