How to play Critical Ops on PC & Mac with a mouse and keyboard

If you’re looking to get a slight advantage over your opponents in the Critical Ops mobile game, playing on your PC with a keyboard and mouse might just do the trick. This quick guide will walk you through on how exactly to set that up.

Download an Emulator

The first thing you’re going to need in order to play Critical Ops on your computer is an emulator. There are quite a handful of different emulators out there, but I’m quite keen on using BlueStacks because of the key binding features it offers. Once you have BlueStacks downloaded and installed, open it up. Next, you’ll see a search bar on the top right – go ahead and search for the ‘Critical Ops’ game and install it.

Once the game is installed, open it up. You should automatically have key bindings set that allow you to move with A, W, S, D and shoot with your mouth. If you’d like to view or change any of the bindings, you’ll be able to do so on the right side of BlueStacks.
