Modern Combat is a series of shooter video games developed and published by Gameloft mainly for Android and iOS. All installments in the series play similarly to that of the Call of Duty and Battlefield franchises and feature multiple missions in varied environments with different tasks for players to complete.

Modern Combat: Sandstorm is the first game in the Modern Combat series and was followed by 2010's Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus, 2011's Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation, 2012's Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour, 2014's Modern Combat 5: Blackout, and 2017’s Modern Combat: Versus.
