The Top 5 Android Arena Shooters to Play on PC This Fall
We’ve been writing lists with several game suggestions for you to enjoy this Fall season. As the weather gets colder, and people start staying indoors more often, you’ll need all the entertainment you can get to fill the void of boredom created by staying inside for extended periods. Luckily, our lists can offer you just that; many awesome titles for you to sink your teeth into.
This time around, we’re going to talk about arena shooters, one of the most popular genres of the decade. On PC, you’d have groundbreaking franchises like Battlefield, Call of Duty, Team Fortress, and Counter Strike, among many others. However, given the difficulty of porting these games onto mobile devices, mostly for reasons that have to do with touchscreen controls, famous titles in this platform are few and far in between.
Nevertheless, while these games can sometimes be awkward to play on your phone, they feel right at home when you play on BlueStacks. The combination of having much better control schemes using your mouse and keyboard, alongside being able to play on your big screen and taking full advantage of your PC hardware makes gaming on BlueStacks the definitive way to enjoy your favorite shooter games.
With that being said, let’s dive right into the list. If you want to have some fun shooting and racking up kills, then you’ll definitely love these games:
Starting off strong with what could be one of the greatest isometric shooters out there. Tacticool, as its name implies, presents a blend of strategy and tactics, coupled with some of the most unadulterated shooting action out there. This game is played from a top down perspective and features matches on many arenas where the goal, for the most part is to pick up a briefcase and keep it on your team for as long as possible. As the briefcase remains in your possession, you’ll rack up points. Getting eliminations also grants points. The team with the most points at the end of the round is the winner.
Tacticool runs flawlessly on BlueStacks and, through the use of our Keymapping Tool, you can set it up so you aim and shoot with your mouse while being to stay on the move using your keyboard, which is something that you can hardly do on phones. In fact, this method applies to every game on this list. Furthermore, there are many different classes and weapons to unlock in this game, including sniper rifles, shotguns, SMGs, and ARs, among others. We always used Sniper Rifles since, with the help of BlueStacks, we barely miss any shots and can get many more kills than the other players with them.
Oh boy; we wrote about War Robots a few weeks ago when we first ran into the game. Our experience was magnificent; we had never seen anything like it on the mobile platform. War Robots is a mecha arena shooter played from a third-person perspective, where you can play using many different mech models on several game modes. While the core gameplay itself is par for the course, using WASD to move and your mouse buttons to fire your weaponry, the strengths of this game lies in its customization.
There are many, many different mechs available for purchase in War Robots, which can be bought with either game currency, or using real money. Every mech has different stats, and some even have special abilities, like the Mercury’s Helldive which allows it to jump to the sky and crash down on the target location, dealing massive damage to the enemies caught in the impact zone. Furthermore, every mech also has different weapon slots in which you can equip certain types of weaponry.
While each Mech has different skills, these can only be used a few times in combat. For this reason, you’ll rely on your main weaponry to tear your foes apart in War Robots. Depending on the type of mech, you can equip either light, medium, or heavy weaponry, all of which have different effects when fired.
In short, if we had to describe War Robots with a single word, we’d definitely go with “Customization.” There are many different weapon and mech combinations that you can try out in this game. Can you get them all?
World of Warships Blitz
If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to wage war aboard a ship, then look no further than World of Warships Blitz. Using warships model taken straight from some of the world’s most notorious vessels, you can find a wide variety of destroyers, cruisers, warships, and other types of ships to wage nautical warfare against other players from around the world. You can even buy and upgrade your very own aircraft carriers, which perform similar to long-ranged DPS roles, much like snipers in other traditional shooters.
In World of Warships, you sail into multiple different arenas to fight against other players from around the world. While there are multiple game modes, just like in War Robots, each match eventually boils down to completely obliterating the opposing force. Moreover, just like in the aforementioned mech title, World of Warships relies heavily on customization as every ship can be upgraded and outfitted with many different components that modify the way they perform.
However, unlike other titles on this list, this naval warfare game is more about patience and strategy than actual execution. To do maximum damage, your ship must be positioned optimally in relation to the enemy vessels. This gives the game a layer of strategy in the sense that you must plan out your route in order to flank the enemy, and cause the most damage to their squishy warships.
Pixel Gun 3D
We already mentioned this title in our list with the best battle royales. However, at that time, we also mentioned how Pixel Gun 3D also has many different game modes including deathmatch, and team deathmatch. In this sense, while you can play it as a battle royale when you have time for lengthy matches, you can also play several quick deathmatches during your downtime.
Pixel Gun 3D is a first-person shooter with a graphical art style reminiscent of Minecraft. The voxel presentation of the game gives it a particular vibe: the environments, weapons, and even the character models are voxel-based, giving them a blocky and stylized appearance. Other than that. Pixel Gun offers some of the best fast-paced and intense shooting action not unlike what you’d find in Crossfire Legends, or in CS:GO for the PC.
Imagine combining the fast-paced, intense gameplay of Counter Strike: Global Offensive, with the progression systems and variety of a mobile game; the result is Crossfire Legends. This arena shooter, like Pixel Gun 3D, is played from a first-person perspective and features some of the most blood-pumping action we have seen on this platform. In this shooter, maps are small and cramped, battles are fast and intense, and there’s not a minute to spare as you shoot your way to victory.
However not every map is small like in CS:GO, as Crossfire Legends also has an awesome battle royale mode. Though the majority of the player base in this game sticks to the traditional deathmatch formats, you can still choose to play a couple of rounds of battle royale to mix things up every once in a while. Furthermore, as you play more and more, you’ll unlock different weapons, gear, outfits, skins, and a whole bunch of features to reward your gameplay.
And there you have it; 5 of the best arena shooters for you to enjoy this Fall. These games will have you running n’ gunning, racking up kills, and completing objectives to take the win. However, if you’re interested in one of these, make sure to play them on BlueStacks so you can get access to the best tools to improve your performance and outplay your foes at every turn!
