1.Call of Duty: Mobile

Featured Image: Pinterest

Last year, Call of Duty: Mobile was released for both Android and iOS to give PUBG Mobile tough competition. Fast forward now and the game has built up a healthy community in India, just like PUBG Mobile. And now that PUBG has been banned, it’s the perfect time to try this amazing battle royale game.

Not to mention, CoD: Mobile is published by Activision, a US-based studio, so the chances of the game being banned are practically nil. The best part about Call of Duty: Mobile is that it offers everything you loved to play in PUBG. In the game 100 player battle royale mode, a 5v5 deathmatch, multiplayer modes like CoD Black Ops, and many more.

Along with that, you can infinitely customize your character, weapons, unlock new characters, earn rewards, and much more. Best of all, the game takes around 2GB of storage and works quite well on budget Android devices so it can sufficiently replace PUBG Mobile in the Indian market. Simply put, at this point, Call of Duty: Mobile is the best PUBG alternative that you can get into.

Pros

  • 100 Player Battle Royale
  • Also includes other multiplayer games
  • Compatible with inexpensive and high-end devices
  • Occupies 2 GB of storage

Cons

  • The community is relatively smaller than PUBG

2.Fortnite

With Fortnite banned from the Apple App Store and PUBG banned in India, it’s time for Epic to tap into the Indian market. With over 75% of Indian smartphone users using Android, Fortnite has a chance to grow big here. But, there is one thing that makes me put it second and that is its huge download size and compatibility requirements.

Not forgetting that Fortnite has also been removed from the Play Store, but you have the option to download the game through its own store. The installation process is quite smooth and you can learn how to install Fortnite on Android without Play Store from our guide. Coming to my main complaint, Fortnite takes around 8GB of storage, which is in high demand for budget Android devices, especially in India.

In addition to that, Fortnite needs an Android device with Android 8 or higher, at least 4 GB of RAM, a GPU that has Adreno 530 / Mali G71 or higher, and, lastly, a medium to the high-level processor. In other words, if your Android device comes with a Snapdragon 8 series processor, then you are good to go. Along with that, now some 6 series processors can handle Fortnite quite well too.

Moving on to the gameplay, Fortnite is a game very similar to PUBG Mobile. You have four various modes: 100-player Battle Royale, Party Royale, Creative, and Save the World. Party Royal is like PUBG’s Cheer Park; Creative is where you can create your island and Save the World is a tower defense cooperative survival game.

I would say that in terms of gameplay, Fortnite is indeed better than PUBG Mobile. And now that a new season of Fornite has just started, you can’t afford to miss out on this opportunity.

Pros

  • High-quality graphics
  • 100 Player Battle Royale
  • Multiple game modes
  • The gameplay is excellent

Cons

  • Needs a lot of storage
  • It is not compatible with all devices.

3.Garena Free Fire: BOOYAH Day

If you’re still not comfortable diving into a high-capacity action, Free Fire – Battlegrounds might be the match you’d like to try first. The controls are all on-screen and easy to navigate, but the highlight for you is that you only have to face 49 other users in a 10-minute window to survive to the end. It is a quick game to hone all your skills before an intense battle.

The basics of the Battle Royale mode remain the same. You will fall on a remote island and you will have to find good weapons, as well as first aid kits, and stay within the safe zone to win the battle.

You can also form 4-man squads and talk to each other to strategize with in-game voice chat. Its graphics are smooth, so you won’t necessarily face any lag during gameplay.

Pros

  • 49 Player Battle Royale
  • Loot and shoot
  • Supports in-game voice chat
  • Pretty good graphics

Cons

  • Weapons are limited
  • The anti-cheat system doesn’t seem to work

4.Battlelands Royale

As the title suggests, Battlelands Royale is a battle royale game related to PUBG Mobile, but by fun and crazy twist. It is not a blood-filled casual shooter, but it does bring adorable characters also a cartoonish game environment. But you become the main theme: a battle royale game for 32 players where the carnage doesn’t stop.

Also, what I like about Battlelands Royale is that you don’t have to wait in lobbies to start the game here. Just tap the play button and you’ll be on a parachute. Now go ahead, loot, shoot, and survive. The actual battle lasts no more than 3 to 5 minutes.

You can play the game in single or duo mode and you must dominate your arena from all sides. The map is also a bit huge and you will have to play the game to learn about the various positions. All in all, Battlelands Royale is a fun-filled game like PUBG Mobile and you can play it to enjoy it quickly.

Pros

  • Fun and harmless battle royale
  • Quick Deathmatch
  • Supports solo or duo mode
  • Detailed map features

Cons

  • Not for hardcore gamers

5.Starfall: The Royale Combat

Starfall: Royale Combat game becomes a unique distinction on this list. It is one of the few Battle Royale games that has been developed by an Indian studio.ScarFall emerged as one of the best Made in India apps in the games category.

So if you want to get rid of China-backed battle royale games entirely, ScarFall would be a suitable choice. Coming to the game, it has both online and offline multiplayer game modes. You will have to survive in the smaller and smaller safety zone and you will have 3 chances to win the game.

In case you want to play solo or in a 4v4 squad mode, you can too. FYI, ScarFall offers third-person and first-person shooting mode. Basically, in terms of theme and gameplay, ScarFall looks like PUBG Mobile, and with 1 million downloads on the Play Store, it’s an easy pick.

Pros

  • Graphics are pretty good
  • Online and offline multiplayer mode
  • Supports FPS and TPS
  • Growing community

Cons

  • There are some bugs
  • It takes time to connect with the players
