PUBG Mobile alternatives:

Here are the five worthy competitors to PUBG mobile.

1. Fortnite


Fortnite is quite similar to PUBG Mobile in terms of gameplay. However, at the same time, it is very quite different. The base structure behind the game is similar to that of PUBG Mobile, where 100 Players jump off on to a battlefield and fight for the firsts rank. At the same time, players are also required to build up structures for strategic play.

2. Call Of Duty: Mobile



Call of Duty is a game that defines most gamer's childhoods. It is among one of the first FPS games that gamers get to play and get hooked on. The game now has more than 10 years of legacy in its bag and that is what it brings to the Mobile version with a small twist to it. Just like PUBG Mobile and Fortnite 100 Players jump off on to a battlefield with identifiable guns and characters. The competition doesn't even come close. Overall, Call of Duty: Mobile feels like a much more refined and fine-tuned game when compared to its competitors.

3.Garena Free Fire



Garena Free Fire is quite similar to PUBG Mobile but it does bring freshness to the gameplay. Free fire is easier to play when compared to other games like PUBG Mobile or Call of Duty Mobile due to easier recoil correction and saves. Garena Free Fire is a battle royale game, developed by 111 Dots Studio and published by Garena for Android and iOS. It became the most downloaded mobile game of 2019, due to its popularity, the game received the award for "Best Popular Vote Game" by the Google Play Store in 2019. 

4.Batllelands Royale



Battlelands Royale is a third-person battle royale shooter, which brings in a larger perspective into the game. It is smaller when compared to other battle royale games in every way possible, fro size to the battlefield. Made for mobile, Battlelands Royale is a casual Battle Royale game for everyone to enjoy. With 32 players and 3-5 minute battles, it's pure non-stop carnage! No waiting in lobbies; no complicated menus to navigate. Just play, parachute, loot, shoot, and survive! The game does have a few latency issues and sometimes feels a bit more aggressive compared to PUBG Mobile.

5.Knives Out



Knives Out is a live-action game. 100 players jump off onto a battlefield from choppers and start fighting the moment they touch the ground. Knives Out (also known as Wilderness Action) is here to revive the genre of first-person action games by throwing hordes of opponents into the mix. Up to 100 online players melee on an island armed to the teeth with weapons and off-roaders set to gun down a player after player. 
The Gameplay is quite similar to PUBG Mobile. But, within a few minutes of starting it gets paced up very fast and is sometimes very difficult to keep a track of. This might be due to smaller maps and a higher body count.
Chinese app ban imposed by the Indian government on September 2, 2020, also banned Knives Out. Full Story
