Fight to survive in the best battle royale games on Android

Crush the competition at home or on the go.

Named after the 2000 film Battle Royale, the battle royale genre started with players modding survival games but has since become the core concept of numerous hugely popular titles, including some of the best Android games. Players compete solo or as part of a small team to kill off the competition, usually on a rapidly shrinking map where they'll also scavenge for equipment and resources. So if you're looking to test your skills and want to test your skills anywhere, these are the best battle royale games on Android.

Call of Duty: Mobile

The first-person shooter Call of Duty franchise got into battle royale by including the mode in Black Ops 4 in 2018, then made it a major part of its mobile game when it launched in 2019. One hundred players can compete on classic maps from the Black Ops and Modern Warfare games, either solo or as part of a two- or four-person team, with each player choosing their special ability. Try out the various modes and unlock characters and weapons from the series.

Free with in-app purchases at Google Play Store

Compete in 100-player battle royale battlegrounds, sniper battles, and team deathmatches on iconic maps from the shooter franchise's history. Earn gear to customize your loadouts for future matches.


Not every battle royale is just about shooting 99 other players to death. Some of them, like FOG, make an effort to introduce elements from different genres, like RPGs and MOBAs (multiplayer online battle arena). Another nice breath of fresh air from FOG is the medieval-styled fantasy setting, a pleasant departure from the same old battlegrounds found in games like Fortnite and PUBG.

The goal in FOG is to, well, survive the encroaching fog. You'll have to use all of the magical skills available to you, get sweet weapons and armor, and know when to fight and when to flee to survive and win in these fast-paced 30-man battles. FOG is free-to-play, blissfully free of ads, but does monetize through in-app microtransactions.

A fantasy-styled battle royale with RPG and MOBA elements, FOG takes the gaming trend of the day to a magical new world.

Garena Free Fire

Fifty players must compete to survive in 10-minute matches that start when you parachute onto a remote island. You can hide from your opponents to ambush them or drive vehicles around the large maps looking for safe places and weapons. You can also compete in a 4v4 game mode, where you'll need to purchase weapons to defeat your enemies. The game constantly introduces new content, like a Street Fighter collaboration last July.

Choose from a wide variety of characters ranging from a DJ to a robot and use their special abilities to defeat your opponents in 10-minute 50-person matches across maps with complex terrain.

PUBG New State

The first true battle royale game, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, is wildly popular on consoles and mobile. So popular, in fact, that the mobile version spawned its very own upgrade with PUBG New State. The original PUBG Mobile was a port handled by Tencent, admirably enough. New State, however, was developed for mobile by PUBG Studios and boasts a few exclusives to set it apart from Mobile.

The core gameplay of New State is very similar to Mobile, but the graphics are considerably improved, there's a new map to play on, and there have been some tweaks to the game mechanics to keep things fresh. Seasoned players can think of New State as an expansion to Mobile. It's bigger, it's better, and it puts a fresh coat of paint on the OG battle royale. Like PUBG Mobile, New State is also free-to-play and monetizes through in-app purchases.

Higher-quality visuals, new maps, and new mechanics put PUBG New State on the road to eclipsing its younger brother.

A relatively unique take on the battle royale format, at least in terms of presentation, ZombsRoyale mixes things up with its 2D graphics and top-down gameplay. Much like other games in its genre, though, ZombsRoyale is also a survival race to the top against 99 other players with multiple modes and maps to conquer. Play solo, in duos, or in a squad (auto-matching is available if you don't have a full four-stack) to suit your social preferences.

True to its name, there's also a unique Zombies mode, which has all the other standard PvP madness plus the need to keep a horde of zombies at bay while you try to win. There are also limited-time modes that rotate in and out, loads of maps, and over a thousand cosmetics to customize your little avatar. What's more, the gameplay is simple and easy to pick up, so this title is suitable for adults and kiddos alike.

ZombsRoyale is currently experiencing some temporary login issues for some players. Still, the developer has historically been quick to clean these things up, so don't let that keep you from trying this free-to-play gem.

Free w/ ads, IAPs at Google Play Store

A 2D top-down battle royale? Yes, it is possible and it's fun.

Ready to rumble?

New battle royale games are coming out constantly, so keep checking back for updates to this list. We're particularly looking out for the release of Apex Legends Mobile.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts

The hidden cost of food delivery

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri
