There are two different ways for someone to go ahead and start playing COD: Mobile on PC. The first way is by mirroring your phone’s screen to your PC or monitor. While this is the safest way to play, mirroring your phone can cause latency issues depending on the connection. Because of this people usually opt to try the second option. This second option uses a mobile emulator on your PC in order to download and play COD: Mobile. This option brings the phone directly to your computer, acting as a phone itself in the confines of the game. This provides no latency, lots of settings to tweak, and overall better performance than the first option. Sadly, because of the way some mobile developers look at emulators, there is potential you could get banned if you are playing against mobile players while on PC. Keep these ideas in mind before setting out into the battlefield.
