The Ultimate Clash Royale Guide For Beginners

Clash Royale is a hugely popular game in India. And it’s nothing like PUBG Mobile or COD Mobile, instead, it’s a card-based strategy game where you take on opponents in 1-v-1 battles. So if you’re used to the action of PUBG Mobile and are planning to try this as well, you might find that the same tricks don’t help you. So we’ve made this beginner-friendly guide for people looking to get started with Clash Royale.

Here are some helpful tips and tricks to ensure you have a fun and thrilling experience starting this game and bag some wins:

1. Balanced Deck

Always keep balanced units in your deck. This will make sure you don’t need to wait for too long for your elixir to refill and you’ll be able to deploy units faster. It will also help you be quick when it comes to launch counter-attacks and defend your tower. A good, balanced deck will be very helpful in keeping your opponent under pressure.

2. Don’t Waste Elixir

The most important thing in Clash Royale is Elixir management. If you’re good at timing your cards and managing Elixir, you can take down your opponent even if your deck is weaker than them. In the beginning of a match, if your opponent is waiting, it might be best for you to wait as well, for your Elixir to fill up to 9 bars before you start placing your units on the field.

But if you’re being attacked, there’s no point in waiting too much because you’ll end up taking a lot of damage on your towers in the meanwhile. That’s why in most situations it’s best to deploy your defensive units as soon as the enemy starts attacking you.

Saving up Elixir won’t help you in every situation, the only thing that will happen is your opponent will be able to deploy more units and recharge his Elixir again, so make sure you don’t let them do that, otherwise they’ll gain a significant number advantage on the field. It’s okay if you’re trying to execute a specific strategy, like baiting your enemy into a trap, but otherwise make sure you make good timely use of the Elixir.

3. Zonal Play

The playing field in Clash Royale has two halves, one for you and the other for your opponent. You may feel like it’s best to place your units as close to the enemy half as possible in the starting, but don’t make that mistake. If your enemy has just deployed a unit and it’s moving towards your half, wait for the right moment. Let it enter your side and then launch a counter-attack. With this you’ll be able to take down the enemy units more easily as your own towers will fire at them too, and you won’t waste any time killing the enemy units.

Similarly, when you’re on the offensive, make sure you don’t activate the enemy king’s tower. It will remain passive until you attack it directly and it won’t shoot your units at all. This will make sure your troops take less damage and be able to put more pressure on the enemy by damaging their towers.

4. Don’t Panic, especially at the end.

Apart from Elixir management and deck building, the most important thing in Clash Royale is to make sure you don’t lose your calm and play with a cool, composed mind. If you panic, you’ll end up making some wrong moves in a hurry and the opponent will be able to take advantage of your mistakes and defeat you.

The probability of this happening is the most once the timer goes below the 1 minute mark, because then the Elixir starts recharging twice as fast. Make sure you don’t put all your units on the offense, and take care of your own towers and focus on their defense as well.

By doing this, you can even turn around a losing game by the time that last 1 minute gets over, because your enemy will try to make sure to do the most amount of damage to your towers and might even let his own towers remain open for attack.

5. Mind Games – Play Your Opponent, Not Just Their Cards

In the middle of the match in Clash Royale, you can use quick chat and reactions as well. You can use these to irritate your opponent, frustrating them into making a rash move. Make sure you don’t cross any limits, and time the reactions well to make sure your enemy loses his focus as being distracted can directly give you an advantage in the game.

These were our 5 top tips for beginners to help them get started with Clash Royale. If you found these helpful, be sure to check back regularly for more guides for all your favourite games, from PUBG Mobile to COD Mobile, Clash Royale, Garena Free Fire and more!

4 Hidden Tricks in PUBG Mobile That You Might Not Know

We have posted quite a few PUBG Tips but here are a few tricks that you may not know about that could be useful if you’re ever in trouble and need some way to get an advantage. So without further ado, here are four hidden tricks in PUBG Mobile you might not know about that can be helpful.

1. Car Bug

The car bug is when you jump onto the side of a car but not on top of it. You jump right onto the edge so it looks like you’re floating and then you go prone and you’re basically completely hidden while also being in a usual spot from which you can aim and get people.

2. Crawling Underwater

If you are near a body of water and think someone might be over and don’t have any cover, you could use this trick. Go prone outside the body of water and select any throwable object. Then start aiming to throw it but don’t actually throw it. Just hold it and start crawling towards the water until you’re completely submerged and not visible. You won’t have to worry about oxygen and can catch an enemy by surprise.

3. Red Zone Camp

This is a risky thing to do but can help you switch your tactics. You take damage if you’re in the red zone, however, if even a single small pixel of your character’s body is touching the blue circle, you won’t take damage. You can use this and always stay at the edge until the very end. Remember, camping is a viable strategy in this game.

4. Stairway Spot

If you’re inside a house and want to ambush people use this. If there’s a staircase, you can jump onto the ledge on the wall of the staircase and position yourself above the staircase, a spot where nobody tends to check, especially in FPP. You will literally have the drop on them once they start climbing the staircase as they won’t spot you and you can kill them. You will be in a vulnerable spot though so if there is more than one person and you shoot too soon, you could be in trouble so do this when there’s back up around.

COD Mobile Vs PUBG Mobile, Which Is Better?

A lot of people have been playing COD Mobile recently while it was in closed beta, and the game is actually pretty good. Not only does it have the same Battle Royale as PUBG, but it also has a ton of other game modes if you want some variety. With COD Mobile soon coming back in open beta, many have been asking what the differences between the two big games are, and which game will be more fun with friends.

Graphics

Firstly, let’s talk about the graphics – Both games look good on phones, but for my preference, COD Mobile looks a bit sharper. It only has one map in the Battle Royale mode, but it has a lot more maps in the different games modes and all of it adds a lot of variety to how the game looks.

Gameplay

Next is the gameplay, and this is probably what will mean the most to players. PUBG Mobile leans more towards a more realistic military feel, while COD Mobile is a lot more arcade-ish. You move a lot faster in COD mobile and the gameplay is lot more frantic. If you prefer a more tactical and slow approach, PUBG Mobile is more suited for you. However, if you prefer a faster gameplay style, COD Mobile is easily the best in the genre. Weapons feel tight and accurate, and the movement is really fluid.

Stability

Anyone who has played PUBG Mobile for a good amount of time will know that the game has terrible optimization. Fun as the game is, it has a lot of performance issues, and the game constantly drops frames below 60. COD Mobile, however, is super smooth and runs at 60 FPS without any lag at all. This alone made me want to play a lot more of COD Mobile over PUBG Mobile. Picking up items and opening doors always felt janky in PUBG Mobile, while it’s really responsive in COD Mobile, and it feels great.

Game Modes

The biggest difference between COD Mobile and PUBG Mobile are the game modes. Both games have the popular Battle Royale game mode that is all the craze right now. However, in COD Mobile Battle Royale, you can drive even more vehicles and even fly a helicopter. This is a lot more fun and gives you more options to chase down enemies. You can also jump off the helicopter and redeploy the glider to land safely. Apart from the Battle Royale mode, COD has lot of other popular multiplayer modes like Free For All and Deathmatch, with a lot of different maps.

This is a big difference from PUBG Mobile, which does have a few other modes but feels really lacking in comparison. This variety is also refreshing and is a good reason for you to keep playing the game and get some good practice with the shooting, even if you get bored of the Battle Royale mode.

Conclusion

Overall, it really feels like COD Mobile is a more refined version of PUBG Mobile, and players will have a lot of fun playing it. It’s not that COD Mobile will be a PUBG killer, but it sure will give it some tough competition. Almost everyone I know who plays PUBG Mobile has great things to say about COD Mobile and said that they would rather play COD Mobile over PUBG.

So which one do you think is the right game for you, PUBG Mobile or Call of Duty Mobile? Let us know in the comments what you think about both the games and which one you like more.

PUBG Mobile Best Weapons Guide

PUBG Mobile has a lot of weapons you can choose to help you win. From Pistols and SMGs to Shotguns, Assault Rifles and Sniper Rifles, there’s just about every kind of gun you can find either on the battleground, or in the air drop. With so many options, choosing the right weapon for your play style can be a difficult task. So here’s a handy guide with all the best weapons in PUBG Mobile across the different weapon types. Without further ado, let’s see what they are.

AWM- Long Range God

The AWM is the most powerful gun in the game as it will kill someone even with a level 3 helmet with one headshot. However, the gun can only be found in airdrops which mean that getting it is a risky affair. If you do get it though, you will tear through your opposition if you’ve mastered this gun.

SKS – The Assault Rifle for For Long Range Fighters

With the proper attachments, the SKS is better than the SLR which is also a fantastic weapon to use. For battle between 200-600m, this gun with attachments is a beast that will not let you down.

AKM- The Power Hitting Rifle

The AKM is a damn good weapon if equipped with a compensator as it deals the highest damage out of the other non crate ARs. The fact that it can be found so easily and with an attachment can be turned into a mean machine makes this a very viable choice.

M416- The All Rounder Assault Rifle

With all the attachments, this weapon right here will have an edge over the AKM. However getting all the attachments can be tricky but if you do, this weapon will never let you down.

UMP9 – The Close Quarter Killer

Set it to auto and watch enemies close to you drop like flies. This thing is great when it comes to close encounters due to its high rate of fire and its magazine capacity. The Vector is also a good choice but can get you in trouble due to its magazine size.

The AUG, Kar98, Scar-L and the Groza are also great weapons that if you find are absolutely worth using with the proper attachments. What are your favourite weapons?

PUBG Mobile: How to Use Grenades for an Advantage

If we pick the most underestimated weapons in PUBG Mobile, it’ll be the throwables. Most of the players prefer rifles or SMGs to pick up a fight and while looting crates or buildings they crave more ammunition instead of grenades. No matter how much of good loot you have, if you don’t pick up Grenades, you’ll be on a disadvantage to have a Chicken Dinner.

There are four types of hand-thrown weapons in PUBG Mobile namely, Frag Grenade, Smoke Grenade, Molotov Cocktail, and Stun Grenades. The latter two are a little rare to find around any map but are quite useful.

Here’s the guide to use all types of throwables properly.

Frag Grenade

PUBG Mobile guide Throws weapons to help you eat chicken easily ...

Using the Frag Grenade is quite easy and simple. It is very helpful in a situation where you want to pull out an enemy camping in a house, this grenade is your go. Simply select it from the throwable items and hold the fire button to cook it and aim it through any window by the red trajectory shown. When it is cooked enough, release the fire button and if the enemy isn’t aware, the grenade will take them out easily. If an enemy is prone and hiding in the grass or hiding behind a stone or a tree, you can use frag grenade to take them out.

Smoke Grenade

Damm, so many smoke | PUBG Mobile Amino

Smoke Grenades are very useful equipment for making a cover for yourself. If any enemy has spotted you and you want to sneak out of that position, you can use smoke grenades and easily get out of there from the smoke and the enemy won’t be able to see you. If you are out of the playzone and need to get in the zone but you can’t find any cover, you can use smoke grenades to help yourself.

Molotov Cocktail

PUBG Mobile) Can We Break Door With Molotov Cocktail? - YouTube

Since stone-age, the fire has always been the way to scare your enemies and with Molotov, you can do that in PUBG mobile. Molotov Cocktail is a throwable that spreads fire in the area it is dropped and it can break a door also. So, this is the perfect way to flush your enemies out of their camping position, it may either be in any building or the grass. Molotov will decrease their health continuously as long as they’re in contact with its fire, forcing them to change their position.

Stun Grenade

PUBG Mobile] Why you should carry Stun Grenade | Full Gyro | Asia ...

Stun grenade is the most underrated throwable in PUBG Mobile. However, it is a great tactical gear that can be used to take away your enemy’s senses for a while, giving you enough time to rush upon him or to get away from him. It is not lethal but it can make your enemy blind and deaf (stun) for some seconds.

PUBG Mobile: Tips to Win Custom Room Matches

If you are a PUBG fan and also good at it then you should play more and more custom matches. Custom Room is created by using a Room Card and the ID and Password, to enter the room, are provided for the same. It is a good way to improve your game-play and to become a competitive PUBG Mobile player.

Here are some easy ways in which you can win a custom room match.

Slow and Steady

Unless you’ve had years of practice and a good device to play PUBG Mobile, there is no need for a hot drop in a competitive match. As position matters more, dropping off on small compounds is a great way to get good loot before the fight you’ll be taking with the opponent teams instead of getting in a fight before getting good loot.

Along the Edges of the Zone

90% PUBG Mobile Players Don't Know These Facts About The Circle In ...

The playzone is the last thing you’ll wanna hit in a custom room match. So, to avoid the blue zone damage, you have to keep moving in the playzone circle. Instead of going right in the middle of the zone, you should pick any ridge or compound on the edge of the zone. Always avoid taking a fight outside the playzone, as that will only get you killed either by the enemy or by the blue zone.

Smoke walls

Most of the time there won’t be any covers and you’ll have to move in the circle from the open, to avoid that you can use smoke grenades as cover. Even during a fight, smoke grenades will always reduce the effort of finding a cover. So, don’t forget to pick-up as many smoke grenades as you can.

Last, but not the Least, Zone

PUBG mobile zone glitch? - YouTube

In a competitive match, with so many teams alive in the last circle, it is always important to get some kills. Get the zone advantage by always moving into the circle and knock out the teams which are running for the zone. The last zone is your win condition, so to be the last one standing, you have to use your skills to kill or be killed.

PUBG Mobile: How to Enhance your Rush Game-play

Every PUBG Mobile player wants to be good at rushing into a squad and getting kills. But most of the players make very basic mistakes which get them killed.

Here are some tips to avoid those mistakes and to hone your rushing skills.

Know the Number of squad members

Always confirm the number of squad members of the opponent’s team before rushing. If you rush not knowing the strength, you will have to face surprise gun sprays on you from the enemy’s squad and they might knock out one or more of your team members before even reaching to them.

Confirm the Position of Enemy

If you rush blindly on a squad, you might get an element of surprise from the enemy’s squad. The opponent’s team members may be hiding in the bushes outside the house and if you rush into the house, it will be very easy for the enemy to get your kill. So, it is necessary to know their positions, before rushing.

Knock, then Rush

The very effective technique of a good rush is to stop at some distance from the enemy’s squad and use a sniper to knock one or more teammates of the opponent, and then rush at them. This technique will give your squad the advantage of having more manpower than the enemy as they will be busy at reviving their teammates.

Using Throwables

If you are near the enemy’s squad house then you should always use throwables like grenades, molotovs, and stun grenades which will panic them and your squad can easily knock out some of the members of the opponent team and then rush at them. Most probably, the enemy would try to jump off the house where you can spot them easily and get their kill.

Element of Surprise

If one or two of your teammates has a sniper or a DMR, then they could flank to the right or left while the other members rush on the enemy. By doing this, the enemy would not know about the members who have flanked, giving your squad enough time to draw the enemy squad out of their covers, exposing them to the sniper.

These tricks are very easy and with them you can play a full rush game-play and get easy kills for you and your squad.

PUBG Mobile: How use Canted Sight with other Scopes

The new update of PUBG Mobile brings a new attachment for the guns, called Canted Sight. Many players are still figuring out how to use that sight. It looks like a smaller version of the Red Dot sight but it’s mounted on the right side of the gun and can be used with all Assault Rifles, DMRs, Snipers, SMGs (except Uzi), Shotguns (except S686 and S1897) and LMGs (except DP-28).

Canted sight can be found on the map anywhere like the Red Dot or Holographic sight. If you equip a scope before Canted Sight the scope will be your primary sight and vice-versa.

There are two options for using the Canted Sight, ‘tap to use scope’ and ‘tap to switch scope’. You select this according to your need. But if you go with the former option, you’ll save yourselves a tap which takes a second to change between Main and Side sight and then open the scope.

In mid-range combat when you’re firing at an enemy with a scope like 3x, 4x or 6x and then you have to suddenly fir at an enemy closer to you then you can either use quick scope switch to change the scope with the Red-Dot sight or you can simply use the Canted sight, which is very quick and will decrease your response time giving you an advantage. Also while switching between ADS and cross-hair, your weapon aims at a much different spot but switching between main sight and Canted sight is very much precise.

But it has some disadvantages also, as it blocks your sight to the left of the screen with a scope equipped on the weapon.

While using peek and fire if you switch to Canted sight then also your aim is disturbed a little and you will have to expose some more pixels of your body which is an disadvantage for you.

But with a few training exercises and classic matches, you can master it and you will be a killing machine in short and mid-range battles equipped with your favorite scope and the Canted sight.
