PUBG Mobile is a global sensation. Everybody knows this. But did you know that this widespread mobile game recently breached reached 400 million downloads? PUBG Mobile’s have made a few recent updates to make the game interesting and keep the players hooked to the game.

PUBG Mobile tips and tricks

PUBG is a multiplayer online battle royale game between 100 players. A player who survives until the end is the ultimate winner. Below is a list of some useful tips and tricks that will help you overcome all the obstacles and win the game

Choose where to land very carefully:

One of the safest ways to begin the game is to land in a proper place away from the herd of other players. Avoiding places hit with plaque is also an excellent move. Also, look out for the buildings so that you can grab some loot. The building locations are indicated as white blocks on the mini-map on your mobile.

If you feel you have landed in the wrong location, you can always open your parachute and drift to some other safe place. But make sure to make the decision early as your opponents are in a hurry to grab the loot from you.

Loot first, shoot later

Just remember the one who survives the PUBG game is the winner and not the one who has killed the highest number of opponents. Loot is extremely important since it includes first aid kits, bandages and painkillers.

Also, items like grenades, half-decent weapon, ammo, safety armor are important that can come handy in later stages of the game. Backpack upgrade is also an important loot to pick during the early levels. Also, make sure to use explosives, if necessary to destroy the unsuspecting group early on.

Only shoot when you’re in the range:

Most players in PUBG gets killed because of this reason. Deciding when to hide and when to attack is one of the most tricky things to follow and implement while playing the game. But, one thing is for sure, never fire unnecessarily if your weapon is don’t possess the ability to reach a farther distance.

Shotguns like S12K and SMGs are effective for closer encounters, assault rifles and pistols are useful for mid-range fights whereas sniper rifles are best for long-distance shots.

Keep an eye on the map:

In any game, keeping an eye on the map is crucial. In PUBG, “The Circle” shown on the map is to watch for. If you are in the circle, you are absolutely safe. But, if you are out of the circle for a longer period of time, you will eventually get attacked by the opponent.

One of the most crucial things to note on the minimap is the fire indicator. If there is gunfire around you, just have a look at the map to know the exact location of the firing coming from.

Wheels are better than legs:

Well, this is a common-sense my friend. If you need to travel to a place within a short period of time, get yourself a vehicle. You will find plenty of vehicles littered all around, especially near the larger cities and on the main roads.

Motorcycle and buggy are useful for zipping to the next play location whereas large vehicles like the jeep are useful to carry four people.

Hide and peek:

Hiding behind rocks or the sides of the building for cover is a safer alternative. Keep an eye on your mini-map and the surroundings before making a move in an open place. Also, watch out the floors, for some intelligent players lying down on the floor.

Also, do have a quick look at the Settings > Basic menu. Simply toggle Peek & Fire to “Enable” and you will have a clear glimpse of players hiding in corners.

Communicate with your squad mates

Communication is always important, especially if opponents are huge in number. Having a word with your teammate about the place to land, deciding who takes what loot, picking a target or even deciding who is in charge of the shotgun in a vehicle is a key trick to survive. Attacking in numbers is far safer than fighting individually.

Thankfully, PUBG Mobile allows voice chatting using your device’s speakers and microphone (needs to be enabled in your mobile Settings>Audio). You also have the option of selecting the language. Alternatively, you can also use voice and chat apps like Discord to send quick messages like “Enemies ahead” and “I will cover you”.

Know your maps:

Knowing how to read a map is important to locate different landing and hiding spots. Thorough knowledge of the map increases your percentage of winning. Miramar, Sanhok, and the newly added snow map Vikendi are the latest additions made to the PUBG games.

Play on an emulator:

For those who love to play the game in a bigger screen like desktops, can use the Tencent Gaming Buddy feature. The emulator runs PUBG Mobile for free.

Make use of Royale Pass

Much like Fortnite’s Battle Pass, Royale Pass comes with lots of reward points. The basic version of Royale Pass is free whereas the Elite Royale Pass is chargeable. The higher version Elite Pass Plus costs much more but offers a few useful goodies like an instant grant of 25 ranks.
