Call of Duty Mobile is banning Emulator players and VPN users

Huge ban wave is happening in the Call of Duty Mobile community. Recently, players are reporting that Call of Duty Mobile is banning the emulator account for 10 years. And the same goes for VPN users as well. why the developers took this huge step all of a sudden, no one knows. But let us take a look at this issue in details. However, the developers have mentioned, it is the unbranded emulators, not the official one.

When did this start?

A few weeks ago (during mid-October to be exact), a community discussion took place to decide the future of emulators in the game as well as the addition of controller support. But the end-results were unknown to the community. Just a few hours ago, Garena Call of Duty Mobile on Facebook posted that they will start banning account for the mentioned reasons.

The official statement says,

Our new anti-cheating system is in place. Here is a list of actions that will get you banned from the game. We are serious about anti-cheating, you should be too.

  • Usage of any 3rd party apps such as crosshair apps or apps that enables docking of keyboard and mouse
  • Use of unsafe emulators
  • Usage of VPN
  • Use of hacks, game scripts and any tools that modify game files

Is the Emulator Bann applicable for Call of Duty Mobile global version too?

Unfortunately, the ban wave has arrived for both the versions of Call of Duty Mobile. As expected, this notice came as a shock to all the emulator users. The players in the official discord server have started complaining about it as their account got banned for 10 years. Even if they did not use any hacks or 3rd party apps, just because of the unsafe emulator usage, their account got banned.

this is not real blah

Zachary Beagle

I run into a person using controller or keyboard and mouse 1 out of 10 games its very frustrating when you are trying to play with touch. Other than that the games great and i ussually drop 20+ on a bad day. But if you need to use a periphreal that gives full console/pc precision just to beat mobile users you deserve a ban just my opinion though.

Nicolaie Rusu

when you play on emulator you play only with players that play also on emulator.


this is not real its already November i still play Call Of Duty Mobile (Garena, im from phillipines) i use emulator called Gameloop


Yep… Same here… I’m still able to play using Gameloop…


imo it doesnt matter if gameloop’s safe or not, when u play too good you’ll be banned anyways

bro syin

is Memu emuolator safe tho?\

Jordan Hartley

actually. if you think about it. the ps4 controller is quite accurate, and if you use an adapter to use your hdmi monitor on your phone, you can be quite good with that. me personally i use touch because i just play it while at the doctors or at meetings ( i know im stupid lol) but ppl using computer in my opinion for keyboard and mouse are rediculous.

Noob. There’s a lot of cod version for pc but u still play the mobile version using ur pc so u can look like a pro playing with mobile player. What a noob. I bet u play so fk worse in the pc version. Noob.


seems you like to run here and call people noob. do you know that players who use emulator get matched together or for some unknown reason forget that?


got banned using emulator 🙁


Gameloop is their official emulator…and if you use reading comprehension it states “unsafe” emulators. That means stuff like blue stacks, nox, and LD player. Gameloop is officially sanctioned by Tencent.

Peter Sautek

The ban changed for 24 hours.
I belive is fair the 10 years was hash a bit, And who ever idea was i hop dont have children becouse is a nasty pice of work dont deserve one. I belive mobile users and the game loop users should be on seperated servers not all in one. ( and befoure some smart people say its is seperated kill cam proov it its not true. by the way my phone suport keyboard and mause whit out emulators and samsung game engine inside the phone alowe it to play like on pc.


i was playing normaly on mobile a ranked game and suddenly got banned after match

David Scarbrough

My account was hacked and in result I think O got banned. 😭😭😭😭😭


Yo I still got banned from playing the official emulator (Gameloop). But it works on my global version of CODM, instead of my real account in the Garena version.


Can i get banned if i use Gameloop?

Probal Datta

No. You won’t get banned as this s the official emulator for COD Mobile. Don’t use any other emulator.

First of all its a mobile version for cod. If u wanna play cod with mouse and keyboard go download the pc version noob. Why even complaining about this stuff, the game was made for mobile so just play it using ur mobile like other players. Fair and square.


you do know that cod mobile has 2 gb size and when you consider all the additional files it rises to maybe 4gb at max. so one can count that as a low spec cod game.
