Call of Duty Mobile Best Controls And Sensitivity Settings Guide

In the last guide, we told you about the best graphics settings for optimal performance in Call of Duty. Once you sort that out, the next thing on the list is to figure out the best settings for Controls and Sensitivity. And that’s exactly what we’re doing in this guide. You can check out our Graphics settings guide here, and if you’ve already done that, let’ cover the sensitivity, starting with the controls.


  • Let’s start off with the Controls Tab. Here you should set it to advanced mode since it doesn’t auto-fire.
  • We highly recommend using Advanced because you have more control over when to shoot because sometimes, you don’t want to shoot someone and want to sneak behind them or be stealthy. Plus, auto shooting just wastes bullets which can be the difference between winning and losing.
  • In Advanced, the shooting met is set it to custom where all weapons are set to Hip Fire besides Sniper Rifle which is set to ADS. This will allow you to scope up guns only when you want to. So if you’re in a close-range situation, you won’t have to un-scope to hip fire. 
  • For Sniper, having it set to ADS helps when you need to do a quick scope shot or when you just want to get a single shot and quickly get out of the scope. This can be extremely helpful with sniping so if you’re a sniper player you should try this out.
  • In a similar fashion, you can use the aim button when you’ve set it to ADS to stay scoped in after you take a shot. This is useful for holding angles and when you know there’s going to be multiple enemies that you will have to take out.

The same settings can be used in BR Mode.


Onwards we go to the awaited Sensitivity tab.

  • Here, set rotation mode to Fixed Speed. This is because it will train your muscle memory. So you will know exactly how much to move your finger to move a certain distance. After this is set, go into a game and then start moving the camera. 
  • Another way of testing your sensitivity is this: swipe your thumb from the middle part of the screen till the edge of your screen. If your camera is rotating about 180 degrees which is directly behind you, you’re good. If it is too much or too little, you might want to adjust standard sensitivity accordingly so that you’re consistently close to 180 degrees.

After you find that move onto the next sensitivity exercise.

  • Look at one spot and try to aim at it consistently at least 10 times. If it feels too slow, turn up your standard sensitivity. Too fast, then decrease it. Keep doing this until you find a comfortable sensitivity and then try aiming at other specific spots from a single place to see if you’re comfortable with your new setting. 

Then do the same exercise for the Aiming Down Sights setting, then again when using a tactical scope and again when using a sniper scope. For sniper scope, the sensitivity will usually be a bit lower than your normal sensitivity so keep that in mind.

You can set pretty much the same settings for the Firing Sensitivity tab which kicks in when you fire your gun.

And that’s about it. These were some of the best settings for control and sensitivity in the current version of CoD Mobile that will help you become the best player among your friends and maybe even the world. Stay tuned for our weapons and attachment guides.
