Mobile shooting games are not far behind from other platforms these days. For you who are a fan of armed action, here is a list of the best shooter games for Android based on gameplay, graphics, innovations and more.
Check out the top 10 shooting games for Android below!
1. Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds Mobile
The game that made the battle royale genre worldwide fever, PUBG Mobile could not miss this list. The game has no solo mode, so it’s perfect for those who like to compete.
As with other battle royales, in PUBG Mobile you are placed in a scenario with other players (usually 100 players, but may be less depending on the mode chosen) and the last to survive wins the match.
In the multiplayer shooter genre, PUBG Mobile is one of the most complete: multiple modes, 1st and 3rd person perspective, lots of control customization options, constant upgrades, solo, duo, squads and more.
2. Free Fire
Much like PUBG, Free Fire is a battle royale aimed at weaker devices and faster matches. In addition, you can choose from characters with specific abilities. Other than these elements, Free Fire is basically the same as PUBG.
There is no talking about shooting games and no talking about Fortnite. The game swept the world mixing classic elements of shooter games with the need to make items to build structures in the middle of matches. These structures can be used offensively or defensively, depending on the player’s creativity.
Although the mobile version of Fortnite is not yet very successful, the game is sure to receive many content updates and optimization to live up to its name.
4. Modern Combat 5
Without a doubt one of the most popular shooter games for Android. It is known as “Call of Duty for Mobile”, and has a large arsenal of weapons, accessories and vehicles.
Modern Combat 5 is a classic FPS with solo campaign and multiplayer mode. The campaign takes place through missions with an average duration of 5 to 10 minutes and the multiplayer has various modes (solo, teams, flag capture, countdown and many others).
Modern Combat 5 is the first in the series to include a class system. Thus, each character has specific advantages and abilities, allowing each player to choose according to their style.
A disadvantage of Modern Combat 5 is that you can only play when connected to the internet, even in solo campaign mode.
5. Dead Effect 2
Dead Effect 2 is one of the deepest shooting games for Android. The game features an incredible 20-hour solo campaign, beautiful graphics, and an RPG-style character system where you level up as you gain experience.
The game doesn’t innovate much in the FPS genre but has some fun interaction mechanics. For example, you need to put your finger on the screen for your character to scan the fingerprint to open some doors. No big deal, but still interesting.
What sets Dead Effect 2 apart from other FPS for Android is the well-crafted story that makes the game a great option to hold you for a long time.
6. Hitman Sniper
Hitman Sniper is a strategy-focused shooter rather than action-packed. Despite having only one scenario, each level presents a different puzzle that involves shooting down your targets in a specific way, getting rid of bodies, triggering a chain reaction, etc.
Because there is only one scenario, the more you play Hitman Sniper the more secrets you find on the map, advantageous positions, timings and other elements that make the player improve as a sniper.
7. Counter Attack – Multiplayer FPS
Valve: “Yes, it just doesn’t do the same!”
That was how Counter Attack: Multiplayer FPS emerged. The game is basically Counter Strike, so the main focus is multiplayer mode, where one team is counterterrorist and the other is terrorist. Terrorists need to plant the bomb and TCs must stop or disarm it.
8. Dead Trigger 2
Dead Trigger 2 is the typical zombie horror FPS. The player must complete major and minor missions in a monster-ravaged world. The graphics are PC-worthy and the scenarios are quite different from each other as the character travels the globe.
Unlike the first game in the series, Dead Trigger 2 is not repetitive as missions and zombies are quite varied. The gameplay is very simple and the control options are customizable.
9. Shadowgun Legends
Shadowgun Legends is a shooting game with many elements of RPG. The options for playing alone are very good since you can interact with almost anything you see. However, the differential of the game is being able to play with others, both in PvP (player vs player) and in cooperation.
The raid system allows you to team up with other players to defeat bosses too strong to kill yourself. This in itself is incredible news in the midst of FPS games. In addition, Shadowgun Legends PvP is one of the best of its kind, containing 6 different options for you to challenge your skills against other players.
10. NEW Legacy
NOVA Legacy is the latest game in the NOVA series, one of the most successful shooter franchises for Android. The game follows the Halo style: an FPS for futuristic-themed sci-fi lovers, robots, spaceships and so on.
The strengths of NOVA Legacy are the excellent graphics and simple gameplay. The solo mode campaign is good, but the best of the game is the multiplayer mode, which supports up to 8 players in competitive online matches and has several customization options.
