Feature comparisons

Type of gameplay

Although they are of the same genre, the two Battle Royale games are very different from each other. While the classic Krafton has a more realistic gameplay that is rooted in gunplay, Apex Legends Mobile character abilities add a different element to the mix.


The Respawn Entertainment title currently contains ten characters with unique abilities that players can use. On the other hand, PUBG Mobile does not have characters with special skills, and players can only use virtual characters that they can customize their appearance.

Battle royale maps

PUBG Mobile has six battle royale maps – Erangel, Sanhok, Vikendi, Miramar, Karakin, and Livik. In contrast, the EA title has only one map so far – the edge of the world. The main Krafton title also has single, duo, and squad modes (four players each), while the other battle royale game only supports teams of three.

Number of players

The number of players in PUBG Mobile depends on the size of the map, but in the case of the other title, the number is fixed. A squad of three mobile players will have to finish nineteen other teams in one match consisting of a total of sixty players.

Note: Indian mobile players should not play PUBG Mobile as it is banned in the country. Alternatively, they can play the Indian version of the game, Battlegrounds Mobile India.
