COD Warzone Mobile, the highly anticipated battle royale title from Activision is all set to launch on March 21, 2024, and our eyes fall on the different features the game will be introducing. While that is one part of the fun, mobile players being able to use a controller to play the game apart from Touchscreen is also pretty exciting. So, in this guide, I shall put together every tip and trick you need to play COD Warzone Mobile with a controller.

COD Warzone Mobile Controller Guide

Apart from your usual touchscreen gaming, COD Warzone Mobile brings together the controller option as well. To be fair, this is something that most players would have liked to have since we have the cross-progression support in this as well. Among the controllers themselves, we have two major options that can be equipped for your convenience, Backbone One Controller and Bluetooth Controller.

Backbone One Controller

This is a great and more ‘handy’ option for a controller, and it allows you to make your device a gaming console on its merit. It comes with several advantages besides being handy, such as great response times, a pre-configured control layout, etc.

This time, a partnership between Backbone and Call of Duty will be there too, and hence it promises optimized controller support across all Backbone One controllers. With this, Backbone+ Subscribers gain access to exclusive perks like Double XP Tokens and unique in-game items, such as a Calling Card, Emblem, and Weapon Charm, to personalize their Loadout.

How to connect the Backbone One Controller

Now, coming to how we can play with this controller connected. Follow the steps below.

  1. Firstly, you need to have the Backbone One Controller and the setup app, either for Android or iOS.
  2. Using your Android/iOS device, connect to the controller via the snap or USB cable.
  3. Launch the Backbone One app to complete the connection between the device and the controller.
  4. Launch COD Warzone Mobile on the device and start playing!

Bluetooth Controller

Apart from the Backbone controller I mentioned, we also get to play with a Bluetooth controller. This comes with the flexibility to switch between touchscreen and Bluetooth according to your preference. This brings you a wireless experience, and hence you can enjoy gaming from a distance at your ease.

Supported Bluetooth Controllers for Warzone Mobile

The supported bluetooth controllers are as follows:

  • Xbox Wireless Controller (Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows PC, Android, and iOS)
  • Xbox Elite Wireless Controller (Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows PC, Android, and iOS)
  • Sony PlayStation 5 DualSense Wireless Controller
  • Sony PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 Controller

How to connect the Bluetooth Controller

Now let us see how to connect the Bluetooth controller to your device.

  1. Enable pairing on your controller.
  2. Activate Bluetooth on your mobile device.
  3. Connect to your controller through Bluetooth settings, which will pop up the pair option.
  4. Launch Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile and see if the “Controller Connected” message pops up.
  5. Confirm controller connection and you are good to go! Adjust in-game controls as needed.

That is it, as simple as that to get your console-like experience on mobile.

COD Warzone Mobile Controller Guide: Tips to remember

While we have the full gameplay possible with controllers, let me remind you that most menu functions are touchscreen-controlled, hence if you are navigating some options other than your core functions with the controller, you need to make use of the touchscreen.

Additionally, it’s important to mention that when Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile launches worldwide, players using either native touch controls or any type of controller will be matched together in the same pool of recruits. This will change once the game gets going with updates in the future.
