Find out how to get started in this famous Battle Royale by following our tips. These tips can be used by both those who play PUBG Mobile on a mobile phone and those who play on an emulator. Remember that playing with an emulator you will only be paired with other emulator players.
PUBG Mobile Tips
PUBG Mobile has a huge community of players, an efficient ranking system, an arcade mode and many other surprises that even surpass the PC version.
1. Know and customize the controls
Generally, the first piece of advice in Battle Royale games is to know where to fall. But since this is a game to play on a cell phone, you first need to know where the controls are. Look for “Settings” and then “Controls”. You can customize your controls by dragging the different buttons to different areas of the screen. Choose a Layout that is comfortable and intuitive. If you play on the emulator, do the same thing, mapping the keys you prefer to play with.
Can you skip these steps? It can. But if you get hit by not knowing the right button to squat or any other action, don’t be crying. Remember the law of the four P’s: Perfect Planning Prevents Crap.
2. Enable Tilt and Shoot
Possibly, for the sake of performance, the game does not enable “Tilt” automatically. Solving this is simple, just go to the menu and enable. Leaning is useful because it exposes as little of your body as possible while shooting or watching.
3. Know the different maps
There are four different maps on PUBG Mobile: Erangel, Miramar, Sanhok, and Vikendi. Each map has a different type of biome, from the Miramar desert to the Vikendi icy tundra and different sizes. Knowing the maps is advantageous, as it allows you to decide where to parachute, where there is better loot, more danger, etc.
Obviously, cities or complexes with more buildings located in the central areas pull more players by the loot than other more deserted locations on the edge of the map. Depending on your style of play, learn the best places to jump, knowing that there are no perfect places. More aggressive players prefer areas with a lot of action. Players who prefer tactics opt for areas farther from the plane’s route, to loot more calmly.
4. Watch out for the loot
PUBG Mobile takes the loot automatically by default. It is possible to disable this option, but more concentration of the player is needed and the screen may be small to see the details clearly, which can make you lose valuable seconds. The advantage of automatic collection is that the loot, in addition to being automatically picked up, is immediately placed on the weapons without having to equip it.
The downside is that automatic collection, in the first moments of the game, can sometimes pick up items you don’t want. In addition, it is impossible to collect grenades and molotovs automatically. Organize your inventory often, throwing away what you won’t be using. There is no point in loading 200 shotgun shells the entire game if you don’t have one in inventory.
5. Loot priority
Choose where to jump. Skip it. As soon as your feet touch the ground, the top priority is to pick up a gun. If you manage to pick up one or more different weapons with ammunition, your next priority is a bulletproof vest, a helmet and a backpack. Of course, you can get all this before you get a weapon, but if you pass through an armed enemy, you will lose everything. Remember that it is a survival game, not a Super Mario level.
6. Know the weapons and master the recoil
The weapons of PUBG Mobile are the same as the PC version, with some limitations. Obviously, in the PC version the weapons are more realistic or allow more control. In PUBG Mobile the weapons are by default in automatic fire or burst (burst) according to the type of weapon and this makes perfect sense, due to the greater difficulty of aiming on a cell phone. If your enemy is far away, use Single mode.
If playing on mobile, using ARs or SMGs you can control the recoil by sliding your finger slightly down while shooting. The recoil feels less in the mobile version, but it exists and can make you miss shots. Try to master every weapon in the game, as you never know what you’re going to find. A good method for doing this is to go in training mode and try out all the weapons with different accessories and sights.
7. Close the doors and skip the windows
This is a detail that is often overlooked and devalued by many players. At the beginning of the game, if you jump in a place full of enemies, the important thing is speed. But after the second or third circle, the tactical importance of the doors is different. A closed door gives the impression that the place has not been explored or, at best, it slightly protects you from view and is more of a barrier between you and the enemy.
Unlike the PC version, in PUBG Mobile there are no windows on the windows of the houses, so jumping out the window is the ideal method to enter quietly. In addition, you can always take an enemy by surprise using a more unusual angle.
8. The minimap is valuable
In addition to guiding you, the minimap provides valuable information on enemy actions and sounds. As the sound of PUBG Mobile is spatially limited, the minimap will help locate shots (even with silencer) or enemy movements with vehicles and even on foot. Always keep an eye on the minimap and you will not regret it.
9. Grenades are your friends
It is common for players to save their fragmentation grenades and molotovs for the end of games, but they are more valuable for clearing up divisions or hidden enemies. Always take as much as you can and use it without fear. You don’t pay for it anymore. The molotov is great for denying an enemy movement by setting an area on fire.
The stunning grenade is perfect for blinding your enemies and getting into divisions, especially when playing squad. Thus, there is no risk of hurting your teammates. The smoke grenade is used to camouflage its movement while moving, healing or under fire. Detonate it and wait a few seconds for the smoke to gain strength.
10. Try the different modes
Practice makes perfect in any activity and Battle Royale games are no exception. PUBG Mobile has Solo, Duo and Squad modes in both Classic and Arcade modes. Duo and Squad modes are good for team play with the advantage of being knocked out before being eliminated, and can even be healed by a teammate. This is good for learning the mechanics of the game without spending your life in the lobby, in theory.
Arcade mode has Mini Zone mode, 8 minute QuickStart, 15-minute Sniper Training and War Mode. All of these modes can be played on Solo, Duo or Squad and increase your Battle Points, in addition to giving you the opportunity to try rarer weapons. You can also play in only pistol matches, sniper rifles, SMGs or even melee. In addition, they are modes that spend less time, which is quite advantageous.
