Motion control, until the advent of gyroscopes, was not entirely accurate and has earned a certain “bad” reputation among users. Certain types of games are more suitable than others, such as racing, but they also provide certain advantages and a new way of playing in other genres such as shooters. However, the precision of the new sensors has changed this perspective and it is becoming more and more comfortable to use this type of control.
What is gyroscope for game control?
Until the arrival of gyroscope, mobiles detected movement or position with the accelerometer. The latter was much less accurate and more limited as it only measures the position of the phone on the horizontal or vertical axes. The arrival of gyroscopes, which far from replacing this sensor but rather both work together, has allowed a measurement of both movements and changes in position since now it is possible to detect the rotations or twists of the device. This is why it is now possible to control games like Call of Duty or racing with total precision.
At a technical level, those that include mobile phones are MEMS – Micro Electro Mechanical Systems. Measuring only 1-100 micrometers, they are capable of detecting changes in the phone’s position and converting this movement into a low-current electrical signal that is amplified and identified by a microcontroller, responsible for sending the signal to the system.
How to activate the gyroscope in Call of Duty: Mobile
Motion control is activated by activating the gyroscope. The gyroscope is a sensor that allows us to transmit this movement when moving the mobile in the different applications or games. Not in all games or apps it can be used, but it can be in Call of Duy Mobile, we show you how to do it. The first thing we will have to do is go to the options, which we will find in the gear icon at the top of the screen.
There we will go to the section of Basic, that we will find next to controls, at the top. We will automatically be in the multiplayer mode section (MJ Mode). We will go down until we see the «Gyroscope» option. There we will select yes, or that only when pointing, in this case we will select yes.
Now it is activated. But it is possible that if you are going to play with the gyroscope it may not be fully calibrated to your liking. That is why we will go to Sensitivity. There we will go down (also in multiplayer mode) until we find the option gyroscope sensitivity. We can modify the sensitivity of each section so that you can leave it to your liking.
Now you can move the camera with the movement of your mobile phone. But don’t worry, you can also do it as usual, to combine it with the gyroscope and be the fastest on the battlefield by pointing and shooting. Ready to defeat all your enemies?
You may need some time to get used to it, we recommend that you modify the sensitivities as you need. That will allow you to be more aware of the game and not of the controls.
It may also be that you end up without getting used to it, then you just go back to the options, deactivate it and that’s it. Return to the battlefield.
