There are dozens of shooter games on the Google Play Store. As a result, it can be hard to find a high-quality game. And while some are decent, many are poor copies of others or cheap console ports. Furthermore, don’t waste time downloading those. Instead, our list will save you time, money, and recommend games you’ll actually enjoy.

These are the best option available right now, even if a few games are getting a little old. Our slideshow below is in no specific order, and each game is excellent, so try them all. Additionally, you can also try some excellent 3rd person shooter games for mobile. Titles similar to Overkill 3, which is an attempt at Deadspace for Android.

Modern Combat 5: Blackout

Modern Combat 5: Blackout

The fifth installment of one of the most popular shooter games for Android has to be near the top of our list, and that's Modern Combat 5: Blackout developed by Gameloft. It's also completely free now after dropping the $4.99 price tag. It does rely a lot on an internet connection though. 

MC5 features some of the best graphics to date on mobile, stunning gameplay, tons of action, and plenty of grenades to throw. With Modern Combat, you get an excellent and exciting fast-paced storyline for campaign mode. Basically, the world is on the brink of anarchy and you must fight through it. Then it has an excellent multiplayer mode where you can build your own squad of killers, and five different classes to level up. 

The Spec-Ops missions are extremely fun too, and great for wasting time. Not only does this game have great graphics and music, the voice-overs are real actors and makes it feel very realistic. This game is a must download, especially those with a controller or NVIDIA Shield. 

Download on Google Play

Personally, I've stopped playing MC5 and my new favorite is Guns of Boom.
