Playing Call of Duty: Mobile is more fun and exciting when you have COD points to buy premium items such as weapons and skins. You can either purchase COD points (or “CP”) directly within the game, or buy Garena Shells which you can then redeem for COD points. Let me teach you how to convert your Garena Shells to CP or COD points which you can exchange for items that will give you an unfair advantage on the battlefield.
COD points (often shortened to “CP”) are the in-game currency of the popular Call of Duty: Mobile game. COD points allow you to join the Battle Pass, the game’s tiered rewards system, as well as to obtain premium bundles that contain weapon blueprints, operator skins, emblems, calling cards, and more. You can purchase an unlimited number of COD points.
Players can buy COD points via the in-game store. If purchasing COD points from the in-game store is not possible, you can instead buy game credits and vouchers (i.e. Garena Shells) from a third-party vendor like Codashop.
Garena Shells are the virtual currency for the Garena platform which includes Call of Duty: Mobile. After buying Garena Shells, you can convert them to CP or COD points through the Garena Topup Center and the redeemed points will then be credited to your Call of Duty: Mobile account.
In this article, I’ll guide you through the steps of buying Garena Shells and topping up your Call of Duty: Mobile account.
Where and How to Buy Garena Shells
There are several websites and apps that let you buy Garena Shells, but Codashop is probably the best-known. Codashop offers a variety of payment options such as GCash, Maya, online banking, credit or debit card, remittance centers, and mobile load (Globe, TM, Smart, TNT and Sun).

How to Convert Garena Shells to CP or COD Points
Now that have your Garena Shells voucher ready, it’s time to convert it to COD points. Garena Shells can be used not only for Call of Duty: Mobile but also for other Garena games such as League of Legends, Free Fire and Arena of Valor.
This is how to redeem your Garena Shells and convert them to COD points:
Step 1: Go to the Garena Topup Center and select “Call of Duty: Mobile – Garena.”
Step 2: Choose either Garena or Facebook as the log-in method.
If you use your Facebook account to register your Call of Duty: Mobile account, then you should choose Facebook. But if you use your Garena account to play COD Mobile, then log in using Garena.
Step 3: Login to your Garena account using your username, email or phone and password.
If you selected Facebook, you will have to grant Garena access to your Facebook information (e.g. name, profile picture and email address).
Step 4: Make sure that “Garena PPC” (Garena Prepaid Card) is selected, and then copy and paste the Garena Shells voucher code or password into the “Garena Prepaid Card Password” field.
Finally, click “Confirm” to redeem your COD points.
The Garena Shells password or voucher code is the 16-digit code after “p/w:” You can find this code in the email sent by Codashop or the store where you bought the Garena Shells voucher.
Step 5: Congratulations! You’ve successfully redeemed your Garena Shells for CP or COD points. Be sure to check your Call of Duty: Mobile account to see if the COD points have been credited to your account. It will take up to 12 hours for your COD points to appear in your account.
If your COD points are still not credited after 12 hours, restart your device or message Garena support for assistance.
