Undoubtedly, PUBG Mobile is one of the top battle royale shooters of all time on mobile. Ever since PUBG was launched on mobile, battle royale games have seen good days. COD Mobile, Free Fire, and Fortnite are equally big names.
Arguably, battle royale and FPS is a very saturated genre. However, this year and 2022 might see a lot of new titles making their way to the shooter category. Some of them might blow up enough to give even PUBG Mobile a run for its money.
