How to play Call of Duty Mobile on PC with keyboard and mouse

Call of Duty Mobile is a mobile game that can be played on PC with emulators. Thanks to that, we can take the opportunity to play this shooting game with the keyboard and mouse, enjoying it like any other game on the computer. Mind you, we all know how difficult the process of configuring buttons can be.

In this article, we show you how to get GameLoop, change keyboard and mouse settings, as well as sensitivity. At the end of the guide, we share a simple configuration that you can use to play Call of Duty Mobile with command.

First step: download and play on GameLoop

To have the best experience of Call of Duty Mobile On PC, we advise you to use GameLoop, the emulator created by Tencent Games. It will provide you with the best default control settings for keyboard and mouse. Download GameLoop here.

It is possible that the game will be installed for you automatically, after starting the program. If not, after opening GameLoop, you will need to go to “Game Center” and search for Call of Duty Mobile. Once downloaded and installed, you can enter the game with the “Play” button, inside the “My Games” menu.

With this step, you will have the GameLoop emulator ready and the game fresh from the oven. Now it’s time to configure buttons!

Second step: configure the keyboard and mouse

When you first enter Call of Duty Mobile with the emulator, it will inform you that the controls have been configured automatically to play with keyboard and mouse. The reason is that Tencent Games has fully supported the emulator for the game.

That includes some advantages, like the button multifunctional “F” which is used to pick up weapons, open doors, enter a vehicle and other functions. Never disable that button! Another advantage is that you will feel as if you were playing Call of Duty from Activision on PC, because all the controls have been perfectly adapted to the keyboard and mouse.

In the following image you can see an example of the default button mapping:

To resolve possible doubts you may have, let’s review the most important controls for Multiplayer mode:

  • WASD: move the character.
  • left click (bullet symbol on image): shoot.
  • Right click / Right click: put the eye in the crosshairs.
  • CTRL / Ctrl: This button will be used to switch between controlling the mouse pointer and the sight of the weapon.
  • R: reload the weapon.
  • Space / Space bar: jump.
  • C: bend down
  • 1 and 2: Allows you to switch between your primary weapons.
  • Click with Scroll Wheel / Mouse Wheel: Switch between your main weapons.
  • 3, 4 and 5: Activate radar, drone or missile unlocked by killstreak.
  • G: equip the grenade.
  • Shift (does not appear on the screen): sprint

You should know that if you play in Battle Royale mode, the interface changes quite a bit, but don’t worry! The GameLoop emulator itself has also automatically configured the controls for that mode. For that reason, your best option to play Call of Duty Mobile on PC is to use this emulator. With others you don’t have that facility!

However, if you wish to change the buttons, you can do so at any time.

Enter GameLoop CODM control configuration

You just have to press the emulator button (marked in red in the image) with the mouse and a control customization window will open. You will see that you can switch between keyboard and mouse, in addition to configuring your controller. Not only that; you can also swap between settings for Multiplayer mode and Battle Royale mode.

Whenever you want to change a button or add a new one, you need to press on the screen in the corresponding place. For example, if you want to change the button to open the map, press where the “M” button appears on the screen. It will ask you to press a new key. Be careful, you can’t repeat buttons!

Third step: adjust the sensitivity

Another important part of the game is adjusting the sensitivity parameters. Unfortunately, you cannot modify these parameters with the emulator, something that you can do in other emulators such as LDPlayer. Therefore, you must do it from the game options.

Adjust CODM Sensitivity

if you enter Settings > Sensitivity, you will see quite a few sections that are worth taking a look at. The most important is the “Sensitivity Settings” as it gives you three different sensitivity settings: Low, Medium and High.

It is useful to try all three in different games, but our recommendation is that you modify the values ​​​​as you are most comfortable. If you don’t like to move the mouse a lot to aim, turn up the sensitivity. If you prefer maximum precision, even if you have to move the mouse more, lower the sensitivity.

Although there are other features that you can modify, the other important option is found in Settings > Basic. In the first section is the “Help when aiming” function. If it bothers you that the sight moves on its own or you want more control to do many headshots, feel free to disable it.

Play with controller in GameLoop

Earlier we mentioned that GameLoop allows you to configure the controller to Call of Duty Mobile. It is true that keyboard and mouse control gives many advantages, but if you love playing with a gamepad, you are in luck! The tradeoff is that you must configure from scratch.

With that in mind, we’ve done a basic controller mapping for an XBOX controller:

In your gamepad settings, make sure activate both joysticks so you can move the character and aim the gun. It is important that you place the buttons in the exact places that we show you, or it will not do the corresponding function. Of course, you can do the same with a PlayStation controller.

Next, we tell you what function each button does:

  • Joystick R: aim with the weapon.
  • Joystick L: move the character / sprint.
  • RT: shoot.
  • LT: put the eye in the crosshairs.
  • RB: equip the grenade.
  • LB: bend down
  • X: reload the weapon.
  • B.: switch to secondary weapon.
  • TO: jump.
  • Y: pick up weapon from the ground.
  • Down, Left, Right / Down, Left, Right: Activate radar, drone or missile unlocked by killstreak.
  • Start: open menu.
  • Back: open score table.
  • Right joystick key / right joystick button: open map.

If you are unsatisfied with the controls for the keyboard and mouse or the controller, we advise you to enter a game against the AI. You will have enough time to reconfigure the controls and test them without fear of destroying the game to other players. Good luck on the battlefield, soldier!
