Call of Duty Mobile is a fun first person shooter and a great battle royale experience playable on a wide variety of devices through both Android and iOS operating systems. However, some players may end up experiencing lag issues, crashes, connection issues or game freezes while trying to open the app or play the game. If you encounter Frames Per Second (FPS) drops in COD Mobile, there are several ways you can try fixing it. In this article we will look at some of the ways you can optimize your device and how to fix FPS drop in COD Mobile for a better gameplay experience.

What causes Call Of Duty Mobile issues and how to fix FPS drop?

There are a number of factors that may lead to issues with the game.

Inconsistent or slow internet connection

Check your mobile data or wifi connection for range and stability. If you aren’t getting a strong enough network signal it may result in stuttering or lag. If you are too far away from your Wi-Fi router or something blocks the signal, it can also result in lag and FPS drops in the game. The same can happen if your connection keeps dropping.

Outdated software

Software bugs are another source of game issues. Make sure that your Android or iOS software is updated to lower chances of encountering this issue.

Optimization setting for both your device and game

The power saving mode on your phone may cause your phone to slow down in order to save battery life. Make sure your power saver setting is turned off. Also while playing the game, make sure your graphics settings are turned down to low to ensure the best performance.

Background apps

Close any background applications or services you have running on your phone. Leaving them on will divert your phones resources away from the game, which may cause lag or FPS issues.

Outdated hardware

Call Of Duty Mobile is a demanding game compared to others in its genre. If your game is experiencing FPS issues, check the hardware. Check if your device meets the minimum hardware requirements for the game.
