COD Controller Support: Everything You Need to Know
When playing Call of Duty Mobile with a controller, you will only be faced with players using the controllers. Additionally, if you are playing on a team where one of your team members is playing with a controller, even then you will have to face off against players using controller support.
It is important to note that you cannot use COD Mobile controllers to explore the in-game menu. So if you want to change weapon loading and customize your character before entering the game, you will have to do so using native game controls.
