There are dozens of shooter games on the Google Play Store. While some are decent, many are very poor copies of others or cheap console ports. Don’t waste time downloading those. Our list will save you time, money, and recommend games you’ll enjoy.

These are the best option so far in 2017, even if a few games are getting a little old. Additionally, there are also good 3rd person games, like Overkill 3, which is an attempt at Deadspace for Android. Our slideshow below is in no specific order, and each game is excellent.

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.

    MC5 seems to be a good game dipped in shit. Plays for 10min then all I get is “Reconnecting to server”
    …People! Quit throwing money at In app purchase infested energy bar controlled internet connection only garbage. All the best developers are ruining all the best games because we can’t just pay for a game like you do on consoles.

    Modern combat 5 just plain sucks…it is so dependent on the internet, that it is unplayable. keeps wanting to “re-connect” I can’t stand a game that needs to phone home every twenty mins or so…how about making a game where you download content, and after the mission is over , you download some more content.
    As more people are moving to mobile entertainment, the more we depend on cellular data which is still quite expensive, and Modern combat eats up all your data minutes very rapidly.
    BTW, I have NEVER been able to actually play the game…I keep getting connection errors, even though I can play a few other “net dependent” games without issues.

    A better article would be “The best FPS games that are not dependent on the net”

    Infinity Blade III and modern combat 5 are the perfect games. I love them very much. Everything about them are really very well and suitable like their graphic and the action scenes. Another game that I love it it’s the Enemy Nightmare. It is the one of best shooting games, and it’s free. I think this game is really perfect and it graphic is high. This is Top 10 shooter game on ios. This popular shooting game is among best third person shooting games aiming to offer you an enjoyable time while playing the game in realistic combats against the terrorists in Middle-East.

    There is the link of this game. I hope you enjoy it
