The best FPS games on Android and iOS in 2022

Mobile first-person shooters are some of the best games you can play now on your Android and iOS devices! If you are looking for some offline gaming fun, or some adrenaline-infused competitive shooting to test your skills, we have collected the ten best FPS games for 2022!

With mobile games being more and more popular, traditional gaming genres are slowly trickling down to pocket-sized versions. PUBG, CoD, CS: GO, Valorant, Apex Legends, Overwatch and Hitman are some of the franchises that have found their way into mobile devices either with original titles or blatant copies. Here, you will find some of the best mobile FPS games that you can play on Android and iOS, with a couple of the classics as a bonus! 

NextPit’s gaming central

Of course, some of our selections are targeted at e-sports gamers who want to be the very best and conquer the top of leaderboards, like PUBG, Call of Duty Mobile, and Modern Combat, while others are based on their graphics and solid storyline like Hitman Sniper. As you may notice many of these games are quite old. This happens for two reasons: First, the multiplayer games are treated as services, and thus, they receive constant updates that keep them relevant. Secondly, some FPS games are simply so good, that remain the best FPS titles you can play to this day.

So our criteria are somewhat loose for this best list. If, for example, a game focuses on providing an excellent multiplayer experience, even if it has perfect gunplay but does not have enough players and suffers from long waiting times, or bot-infested lobbies, then we can not recommend it. Also, this means that we cannot do a countdown. Every game in this list is here for its reasons so that you can decide which one is the top one for you.

Call of Duty Mobile: The best competitive FPS game for smartphones

Activision hired PUBG developer Tencent to develop a mobile adaptation of Call of Duty. It makes perfect sense then to name this Call of Duty: Mobile which also boasts the mandatory Battle Royale mode that can be unlocked after just a few rounds. The game features many different modes as well as season-specific events, contributing to a premium, action-packed shooting experience.

Call of Duty has become the go-to shooter for mobile, dethroning other titles like PUBG in 2022, with solid gunplay, beautiful, customizable graphics, intuitive controls, and a solid player base that guarantees you never wait for a match. The game is also an e-sport, with the first tournament in 2020 offering prizes of up to 2 million USD.

Since summer 2019, PUBG Mobile has been made available in a lite version to cater to mid-range smartphones,  and this move effectively expanded the target audience of this super hit.

Unfortunately, the graphics are not as good as the PC version, which you will definitely enjoy over a large monitor. Still, the Lite version does serve its purpose – as the game runs without any performance issues on mid-range smartphones. It is easy to use, and most of the elements have been converted over to the mobile world.

PUBG: New State

As of 2021, PUBG has received a sibling! Under the name of PUBG: New State this game is a stand-alone expansion that takes the formula of PUBG and gives it a futurist spin, with new weapons, sci-fi vehicles, and improved -even heavier- graphics with global illumination. 
The game has remained pretty much the same as its predecessor in mechanics and gunplay; thus, we put them together. Although we have to note that the new faster, 20-minute Extreme Battle Royale Mode is something the franchise needs. 

The game still has a few rough edges and is essentially a reply to Call of Duty: Mobile. This lack of originality and some gameplay issues that are not well ironed out yet, push the veteran players to return to PUBG: Mobile. Thankfully, our overall experience with the game shows a lot of promise, and I would not be surprised if after a year of updates, PUBG: New State has replaced PUBG: Mobile as the absolute best battle royale game for smartphones.

  • 4.5 stars on Google Play (Lite version: 4.2 stars) (New State: 3.7 Stars) / 4.2 stars on the Apple App Store (New State: 3.8 Stars).
  • Price: Free.
  • In-app purchases: Yes.

Modern Combat 5: A Call of Duty alternative FPS game

It looks like Call of Duty: Mobile, it has similar gameplay to Call of Duty gameplay, but it features a single-player story! Modern Combat 5 works best for high-end smartphones, but that doesn’t it is not playable on mid-range devices. Above all, the detailed graphics are impressive, but fans of first-person shooters shouldn’t expect too much from the mission design and story.

Once again, evil terrorists are threatening the free world, and as a brave super-soldier, you simply cannot allow such threats to be realized. Hence, our hero goes into battle with a large arsenal of weapons and shoots everything that moves. The jobs are mostly “go there and do all” missions, but it never gets really boring, with each success motivating you to unlock new improvements. There is also a lot of action in multiplayer mode, too.

So this is my selection for the best FPS games you can play right now on mobile! In 2021 we had quite a few considerable updates in most of those titles. CoD got is running its first season and PUBG has a new installment so 2022 is definitely an exciting year to be a mobile FPS gamer! What do you think? Do you agree with my selection? Is there any game you would like to add to this list? Let me know in the comments!
