Battle Royal Games are rapidly getting popular among players of different ages and with different game accessibility modes. The most popular games in the segment are PubG, Call of Duty, and Free Fire. So, let’s try to figure out PubG vs. Call of Duty vs. Free Fire, which game is the best Battle Royal Game.

The games can be compared on some parameters:

  1. Maps

Maps are the completer route paths for the players to finish one complete zone. PubG offers four maps namely Erangel, Miramar, Sanhok, Vikendi. Sanhok is the smallest one while and Miramar is the largest ones among all four. These maps are in the classic mode of the game.

In Call of Duty, there are three maps to play named Classic, Blitz, and Alcatraz.  

Free Fire has three maps to offer: Purgatory, Bermuda, and Kalahari. Bermuda is the first map one gets to play in and is about area 4X4km. Purgatory is reached after clearing level 5. It is of the same size as Bermuda but different in geological conditions. The third map is Kalahari added latest to the game.

So, clearly, PubG has the maximum number of maps providing you greater option to explore comparatively.

2.     Game Play Modes

In COD, there are two modes Battle Royale Mode and Multiplayer Mode (Core, Featured). The Multiplayer mode has two sub-modes namely Core and Featured. 

For PubG Mobile, four modes are there: Classis, Arcade (Quick Match, Sniper Training War), EvoGround (Payload 2.0), Arena (Gun Game, Arena Training, Team Deathmatch, Domination, and Assault). Here also in this PubG vs. Call of Duty competition, PubG scores over.

In Free Fire, four gameplay modes are there as Classic, Clash Squad, Ranked Game, Kill Secured.

So, in Game Play Mode, PubG again gets a lead over both the games as it offers around 12 gameplay modes which are almost double of both the games.


3.     Graphics

In PubG, the graphics are of high quality with each detail differentiable and settings can also be changed to save battery life or change textures. It uses Unreal Engine for running and is almost very good with all kinds of devices, but, on powerful devices, the graphics look magnified.

For COD, creators have chosen Unity Engine to run it. The game is optimized to run smoothly on all kinds of devices and can be run on higher setting mode on less powerful devices also. Options for settings changes are available with this game also to customize the visual effects as per the player’s choice.

In Free Fire, the graphics are neither very good nor clear nor having a BR game visually. It looks more like with a cartoonish touch with edges not defined clearly. It clearly loses the race in terms of graphics from both the games.

In concluding, we can say in this PubG vs. Call of Duty fight, PubG still manages to reach on top as the graphics in Pubg look denser and not very confined while in COD, graphics look like they are a little constricted especially in the case of maps.
