PUGB or Playerunknown’s Battle Ground is quickly becoming the most popular game in the world. You can’t miss it. You’ll find groups of people playing it in cafes, in street corners, across the world. It’s a really fun way to spend time with your friends or to kill some time at the end of the day.
The best thing about PUBG is that it’s really easy to pick up. It’s a Battle Royale game where you’re dropped in an island with 99 other players and the objective is to be the last man standing. As time goes, the map shrinks so you have to be on the move constantly. While PUBG is easy to pick up, it’s not so easy to win. That’s where we come in.
If you’re just starting out and haven’t had the chicken dinner yet, follow our PUBG Mobile tips and tricks below on your iPhone and iPad.
The first couple of seconds of the game are really important. Where you land gives you a huge leg up. If you’re a beginner, stay away from high traffic areas. Anytime you see a big cluster of buildings, it’s best not to land there.
Instead, go a bit farther and land in a smaller settlement. You’ll still find the essential loot and guns and it will be easier to fend off other players. Start with places like Gatka and Mylta.
Once you’ve landed, one of the first mistakes you can make is to engage in combat early on. If you’ve just landed and you hear someone else in the area, turn away and go in another direction. The chances of them carrying a weapon are much higher.
When you’re exploring a new area, keep an eye open for tell-tale signs of activity. If you come to a building with doors open and the ammo is gone, someone has probably been there. They could be gone by now but you shout proceed slowly.
And similarly, you should close the doors when you’re hiding out in a building, or after you’ve looted. This gives you an advantage and makes surprise kills easier.
At first glance, the shotgun might not seem like the best weapon. But for most close range combat, especially in the beginning, it really is. In the beginning you’re mostly raiding areas and chasing other players, this is where the shotgun shines.
The armor in PUBG wears down as you engage in combat. So it’s best to keep switching it when the armor depletes. Even if you have to switch a higher level armor to a lower level one, it’s fine. Because the protection you get is going to be more.
Don’t play hastily. Don’t rush into battle. Do it thoughtfully. Take your time. Make sure you have the right weapon selected and then go.
When you’re playing to win, you’ll need dependable tools. After a couple of games, you’ll figure out which gun you’re most comfortable with. Every game, try to find the gun and once you do, stick with it. Even if it means dropping a more advanced weapon.
Once you’ve got the right gun, chase the right attachment. It’s really important to have a nice scope. A 4x scope on your sniper will do wonders.
Don’t run in a straight line when you’re under fire. This is a sure-shot way of being killed. Instead, run in a zigzag or haphazard pattern. It will take longer to get to cover but the chances of you being dead are much lower.
When someone is sniping at your from a distance, your first instinct is to lie down of the ground. I’ve made that mistake many times. The sniper has already identified you and they have a good vantage point. If you lie down, all they have to do is lower their aim and shoot. Bam, you’re dead.
