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.


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.


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.


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.


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?

The Club in COD Mobile: All you need to know

Anniversary Machine – The points earned via playing COD Mobile matches or minigames in the Club can be spent on the Anniversary Machine for a spin. Each spin costs 10 points and also gives a few anniversary points in return along with the chance to earn some epic cosmetic items. 

Other activities in the club just enjoying and chilling with other people as well as watch some television while sitting at the bar. 

Reward Redemption in Free Fire

Free Fire has a huge amount of in-game skins, new outfits as well as playable characters to unlock. The majority of these items can be purchased from the in-game store using diamonds. But not everyone is willing to spend diamonds so the other way is using redeem codes to obtain these items for free. 

The codes consist of twelve alphanumeric characters. They are released in short spans of time and enable players to get rare skins and other cosmetic items. But how do you redeem them? This article will provide step by step instruction on how to do just that.

  1. Open a web browser and go to “”. Or just click here.
  2. Login to the website using your Google/VK/Facebook?Huawei ID.
  3. Enter all the details including the Redeem Code and your ID. Click on Confirm.
  4. The items will be sent to the vault section in Free Fire where you can use them. 

Every code has a specific limit for redemption and once that limit has been exceeded you have no choice but to wait for the next set of codes.

GamingMonk Community Interview: Aman Warsi

Over the weekend we had the pleasure to talk to Aman Warsi one of GamingMonk’s highest earners as well as a passionate FIFA player who is well on his way to make a sustainable career out of his love for eSports and FIFA. 

Here is a transcript of the interview:-

M = Manuviraj(Interviewer)

A = Aman Warsi(Interviewee)

M: How did you get into gaming?

A: I used to play casually with my friends and we mostly played PES. There was a gaming

parlour near my house and that’s where it all began. Later on, I heard about

GamingMonk and the GCS tournament. The first-ever LAN event I took part in was GCS


M: Do you see esports as a potential career for yourself and other Indians?

A: Yes of course. Take the example of FIFA ‘21, we are now eligible for global series which 

opens up space for many new players. Many players are getting signed by professional

Teams. Look at PUBG Mobile, it made waves in the Indian esports scene. All in all if 

you’re ready to practice and grind the game every day and if you have the determination 

to do it, coupled with a little bit of family support, I don’t see why you can’t make a living 

out of it. 

M: Is your family supportive in this regard?

A: Yes absolutely, they support me every day and in every event that I take part in. They

take care of everything- from managing my expenses to planning my trips, what I am

today is because of my family. 

M: You’ve played some PUBG tournaments too. What are your thoughts on the PUBG ban?

A: I think the nation comes first in this regard and the privacy and security issues are

really important to take into consideration. 

M: What are your tips for other budding players?

A: I have seen some players who lose one game and with that, they lose all hope. I think 

It’s about playing like you’re the best in the country and it shouldn’t make a difference 

who your opponent is. When  I lose, I go back home and realize the mistakes that I 

made and I try not to repeat them. You’re not gonna get the results every time and not

anytime soon so keep grinding, grinding and grinding.

M: Do you plan to pursue this(esports) for the foreseeable future as well?

A: Yes. My main goal currently is to qualify for the FIFA Global Series and I have already

told my parents that I’ll be taking a drop this year to pursue gaming. I want to get India 

on the map of the FIFA esports scene because I know we have the potential. 

M: Who are your favourite esports players?

A: In India, I look up to Saransh and Charan because to win a single tournament is one

thing but to keep winning takes a lot of skill and consistency. From abroad it has to be

Fnatic tekkz, I mean he’s only 19 and has been winning many tournaments. 

M: How has GamingMonk helped you further your career?

A: I didn’t know a single name in the FIFA Indian pro-community before I joined

GamingMonk and it helped me find a community for myself. I got added into groups

which helped me improve my game. Also, the monetary aspect also helps because if you have nothing to show for the time you spent gaming, why would your family support you.

Best Scopes In Free Fire

Free Fire contains a wide array of attachments for all the guns available for use in the game. When it comes to scopes, it’s mostly personal preference but it seems that some scopes are better than others and offer more accuracy as well as visibility. In this article, we’ll take you through some of the best scopes available in the game across different distances. 

Red Dot – The classic red dot sight is one of the best scopes in Free Fire and excellent for close to mid-range combat. It’s easy to come across and supports numerous guns. It has very high visibility due to it being very simple and minimalist. It allows for extremely precise shots as well as the ability magnification. 

2x Scope – Best suited for mid-range combat, the 2x scope is also a favourite of many players and the precision sight picture makes it one of the cleanest scopes in the game. If you can get your hands on it, do use it and I promise you’ll love it. 

4x Scope – Ideal for long-range combat, just attach it to your favourite sniper to take out your enemies with flair and ease. You can also attach it to your favourite AR and shred enemies at mid-range with ease. The 4x scope is much harder to come by than a 2x or red dot.

Thermal Scope – Although it’s not as widely used as the other scopes on this list, the thermal scope is still highly suited for aggressive players who want to take out campers/ The thermal optics make it extremely easy to detect campers. It does not offer as powerful a magnification as the 4x scope so keep that in mind before rocking it.

8x Scope – The most powerful scope in the game when it comes to magnification, the 8x scope can be used to take out enemies at extreme ranges. It’s only attachable to snipers and offers high precision at those long ranges. Though it’s really rare to come by, the scope has a wide appeal among professional snipers in the game. It’s usually good to have it during early game fights when the circle is big because it’s practically useless at mid to close range battles.  

Fastest Characters In Free Fire

For newer and even seasoned players, movement speed makes a gargantuan amount of difference in-game. It is as important as your HP and damage. In Free Fire, the characters don’t have any HP differences but movement speed does vary. A faster movement speed allows for quicker flanks, quicker escapes, and quicker looting. 

Kelly – Known as ‘Free Fire’s Sprinter’, Kelly’s dash ability gives you a 6% increase in movement speed which can be critical. It is rather weak when compared to the other characters in the game but nonetheless, she deserves a mention in this list. Kelly was one of the first characters added to the game which can explain this situation.

Caroline – Caroline has one of the better abilities in Free Fire. Her movement speed is increased by 8% whenever she’s rocking a shotgun and we have already explained to you the difference shotguns can make in your game here. If you’re planning to use the M1887, Caroline might just be your best bet. 

Alok – Hands down one of the best characters in the game, Alok is overpowered which is mainly due to his ability called ‘Drop the beat.’ When active, this ability increases the running speed of Alok and his teammates within a 5-meter radius by 15% for 10 seconds. Honestly, just use Alok.

Joseph – He is the fastest character in the game. The catch is that he cannot activate his ability voluntarily. The ‘Nutty Movement’ passive ability increases Joseph’s movement speed by 20%, which way faster than any other character in the game. When you’re outside the safe zone, you can constantly use this to close in to the safe zone.


With season 9 around the corner, PUBG corporation teased a new map called Paramo. PUBG Corp. Claims that there are gonna be huge changes in the new season, especially because of the new map which they refer to being ‘dynamic.’ This means that the map will change from game to game which makes it all the more exciting and is something new to the world of BR games. 

In a tweet which teased the release of this new map, Paramo looks really intriguing with PUB Corporation saying, “Paramo’s dynamic landscape will keep you guessing each drop!”

The features which will make the map dynamic are the volcanoes and the helicopter which may be controllable by the players. In the teaser, volcanic ash can be seen falling from the sky and sunshine is visible on some areas to the dismay of geographists. 

There are buildings which can be seen changing along with the landscape which is sure to make the map more interesting. This also makes us guess whether the loot is also going to be dynamic and just how far PUBG Corporation is willing to take the integration to. 

Season 8 is in its last leg and we can expect Season 9 to roll out soon. Season 8 ends on October 21 on PC and October 28 on consoles. Season 9 will also bring the solo ranked mode. 

Since PUBG Mobile is banned in India, we’ll have to wait to see whether the update will come to mobile in other countries or not.

Free Fire: Best Long Range Weapons

Free Fire has a wide array of weapons available for players to use, but not all weapons are created evil, and one of the most important factors to consider while choosing your loadout is whether you play aggressively or passively. If you’re a more passive player and prefer to gain an advantage by taking out players before they see i.e you prefer mid to long-range combat then there are some guns to which are better than others. In this article, we’ll list down the best guns in Free Fire for long-range combat.

SCAR – The SCAR is one of the most beginner-friendly weapons in the game. It has low recoil and a high rate of fire which makes it effective at mid-range and sometimes even long range if you use burst fire. Remember to equip it with attachments to suit your needs and playstyle better. 

AWM – The best sniper in the game by a huge margin, the AWM is ideal for players who are comfortable in very long-range engagements. It comes with a pre-attached 8x scope to take out enemies with ease. Also, it’s a one-hit kill if you manage to get a headshot. The only catch is that this weapon can only be obtained from drops.

AK – The AK has high damage and good range which makes it an effective weapon during mid to long-range combat. It has high recoil but the high damage and rate of fire more than make up for it. In the right hands, this is one of the deadliest weapons in the game.

Free Fire: Best Close Range Guns

If you’re wondering why you’re unable to win those close-range gunfights and you get downed before you even get a chance to react, try switching up your weapons and maybe make the switch to SMGs or shotguns to destroy people within range. 

Most of you are well acquainted with the various ARs and Snipers in Free Fire but don’t rock a short-range option in your arsenal. If you’re looking for some good options, we’ve got you covered:-

MP5 – One of the best SMGs in the game, the MP5 is an absolute beast when used in close range combat. Its high rate of fire coupled with decent DPS makes it the go-to weapon for many good players. The low recoil is an added bonus. There are various attachments available in order to increase mobility, accuracy, etc. 

M1014 – This shotty is a monster when it comes to close-quarters battles. Even though many people find shotguns cumbersome due to the high reload times, this one allows you to unload six shells before having to reload which if done correctly is more than enough to kill an enemy. 

MP40 – If your go-to strategy is spraying and praying then the MP40 just might be the most ideal weapon for you. The weapon boasts of the highest rate of fire in Free Fire which makes it a beast when circumstances are dire. It also has a snappy reload mechanism along with a large enough magazine to take care of anyone who stands in your way.
