Dead Effect, a first person shooter title developed by inDev Brain for Android as well as for iOS. It is one of the best shooting games available on date. It features the gameplay mechanics similar to the critically acclaimed shooter title, Modern Combat and the Sci-Fi title, N.O.V.A. The game was first available to purchase, but was later made free due to popular demand. However, it still has some in-game purchase options through which players can buy stuff like energies, supplies along with weapons they want to unlock first. Dead Effect features only a single player mode, but it’s still pretty much fun considering the fact that you get to kill zombies with a chainsaw, a machete and even with a mini-gun. A sequel of the game is also available if you have already completed the first part. So in the game, you mainly have to focus on killing the Z’s to make your way through the chaotic land.

Next game is a must play game in the best shooting games list and it is one of my personal favorite games, SHADOWGUN: DeadZone is a multiplayer shoot title developed by Madfinger Games for both Android and iOS. The game is one of the best multiplayer games out there. It is a spin-off of the 2011 video game, SHADOWGUN, but it features the same visuals and gameplay mechanics. The only difference is that DeadZone was released as a separate multiplayer portion of SHADOWGUN. The game is based in the year 2350, so you can pretty much expect advanced technology and weaponry. Players can complete various in-game tasks to unlock weapons. Do keep in mind that some weapons are rank based so you might have to reach a higher rank to unlock it. Overall, the game is definitely worth a try, and why won’t it be? I mean, it is free. For those who want to get involved in the story, they’ll have to skip DeadZone for now and go straight for SHADOWGUN.

#2 – Dead Trigger

Dead Trigger best shooting games for android

Dead Trigger, a zombie-themed first-person title developed by Madfinger Games. It is currently considered as one of the best shooting games out there. The game lacks a multiplayer mode and features only the single player portion. Along with Story Missions, there are many side missions and daily challenges available in the game. As for weapons, players can unlock them by making progress in the game or they can simply purchase it using cash and gold. Cash can be earned by completing missions while Gold can be earned by completing various challenges. Gold has its own value and it can be purchased by even real life money. But it’s worth it considering the fact that you can buy exclusive weapons with it. Different kinds of equipment and boosts can also be purchased using these two currencies. Whatever the case is, Dead Trigger is definitely worth a shot. A sequel to the game was also released some time ago, which features the same gameplay mechanics as the first one.

#1 – Modern Combat 5: Blackout

On the tippy top of my list is the first person shooter title from Gameloft, Modern Combat 5: Black Out. The game undoubtedly tops the list of best shooting games and is a sequel to Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour and is the fifth and latest installment in the critically acclaimed, Modern Combat series. The game features a lot of missions along with different multiplayer modes. Along with completing the story solo, players can compete in a variety of multiplayer modes including Free for All, VIP, Squad Battle, Team Battle and a few more. The gameplay is similar to the previous games of its series. However, unlike the previous games of its series, the game was launched as a free-to-play title on all platforms. The game features six different classes in both single-player and multiplayer modes along with high visuals. Personally, it is my favorite mobile game ever and I would definitely recommend everyone to give it a shot. Overall, Modern Combat 5: Black Hours is better than the previous games of its series in every way.
