PUBG Mobile How to Win Solo Matches Guide

While PUBG Mobile is a lot of fun with friends, it doesn’t mean you can’t go in alone and enjoy yourself. In fact, solo games can be a lot more intense and adrenalin-filled, as it’s each man for himself and you have no back up to rely on. That’s why we’ve prepared this guide with some tips and tricks to help you win chicken dinners in solo games.

There are three major tips that you need to remember for every solo game in PUBG Mobile. No matter what the situation or your position is, these are likely to come in handy.

  • As you don’t have a team to back you up, you need to make sure your equipment is suitable for any situation. You need a versatile loadout that can help you come out on top, no matter how badly you may get stuck. For this, make sure you acquaint yourself with versatile weapons like assault rifles which can benefit from a variety of attachments as you’ll be relying on them a lot.
  • One thing that you will always need to be careful about is positioning. Since this is Solo mode, you’ll have to keep a track of enemies coming in from all directions. Keep moving unless you find a good vantage point, checking around for enemies and loot.
  • Shoot only and only when you’re sure you can secure the kill. Try to take advantage of enemies who are already engaged in a fight and kill them. Another thing you can try is to wait for the enemy to kill whoever they’re fighting, then just as they’re coming out or trying to heal, ambush them and get a kill for yourself.

Pick out a Good Landing Spot

  • If you’re trying to be defensive and survive the early game without getting into too many fights, try landing far away from the path of the plane. Going to locations that fall close to the plane’s path may lead you to hot zones as a lot of other players do the same. Landing far will increase your chances of survival and also make sure you’re able to get some loot in peace.
  • When playing aggressively, feel free to land in areas that are in the plane’s flight path. This will help you learn how to be quick on your feet, trying to get loot as fast as you can and get you into action early on in the game.

Surviving till the End

After jumping off the game, your first priority is to equip yourself with some weapons and gear. Landing far from hot zones will ensure you’re able to do this in peace, while within a hot zone you’ll have to move quickly. You have a sufficient amount of time before the blue circle starts closing in, so make sure to use that properly instead of just rushing into the safe zone empty-handed.

  • As mentioned before, you need a versatile loadout to survive in Solo mode, and your best friend for that is assault rifles. They effective at all ranges, support a wide variety of attachments and can be suitable for any kind of situation.
  • If you find yourself outside the blue circle in the early game, don’t panic. Early on in the game, the tick damage you take is very low, so you can still easily make it to the safe zone and heal yourself. Your priority in the early game should be avoiding risky routes and finding vantage points.
  • Map awareness is something that will always come in handy. The mini-map at the top shows the directions for enemy footsteps and firing, so keep an eye on the map as you play because that will give you a huge advantage.

These tips and tricks you definitely help you win some solo chicken dinners and rise up the ranks. Keep checking back for more guides for all your favourite games like PUBG Mobile, Garena Free Fire, COD Mobile, Clash Royale and more.

PUBG Mobile Vector Attachment Guide

We have a few assault rifle guides for PUBG Mobile, so today we’ll help you out with one of the most popular SMGs in the game, the Vector. This is a guide on how to handle the Vector’s recoil and the best attachments you can find for it on the battlefield.

Vector is an SMG with a high rate of fire. While the recoil for this gun is controllable, the biggest issue it faces is ammo capacity. It’s a deadly weapon for close-range combat and can be pretty useful for medium to long-range as well.

Before we get to the attachments, let’s take a look at the weapon stats.

The Vector has a base damage of 31 but the high rate of fire takes the DPS up to 563, which means you can drop your enemies quickly in close quarters.

The horizontal recoil in the Vector is pretty low, so the main thing that needs to be handled is the vertical recoil. Additionally, one thing you should note is that the gun is pretty accurate for its first 10 shots.

The vertical recoil and low ammo capacity problems can be easily solved by using the right attachments.

The Vector can support a lot of different attachments, more than any other SMG in PUBG Mobile, which makes it a versatile weapon. Let’s talk about the best ones you should have while playing with the Vector.

Quickdraw Extended Magazine

The first thing you need to look for is a Quickdraw Extended mag. If you can’t find that then look for an Extended mag. That will take your bullet count from 19 to 33, which means you can fire for longer without needing to reload. Combine that with its high firing rate and it can work wonders for you in a clutch fight.

Compensator

For the muzzle, we suggest you go with a compensator which will reduce the horizontal and vertical recoil. In fights where each bullet decides whether who lives and lies in the game, one can’t understate the significance of a compensator. But if you think you can handle the recoil yourself, you can take a stealthy approach and go with a suppressor instead.

Half Grip/Vertical Grip

Now let’s talk about the lower rail attachment. For this, you have two options, depending on your playstyle. If you prefer engaging in close-range combat, then go with the half-grip. Otherwise, go with the Vertical Grip because that’s more helpful in mid-range and long-range firefights.

Scope

If you’re someone who picks the half-grip for the Vector, it means you probably stick to close-range and in that case, you should go with the Red Dot sight which will help you aim more accurately.

But if you’re choosing the vertical grip, go with the 6x scope because that will help you fight at long range, and you can switch it to the 3x which will be helpful in mid-range fights.

Stock

For the Stock, you only have one option and that’s the Tactical Stock. This will make your Vector more stable and help you take care of the recoil.

Finally, if you pair your Vector with a DMR, your loadout will be perfect. It’ll be very suitable for the fraggers who like to push aggressively.

The attachments mentioned above will help you tackle the Vector’s recoil a lot. And once that is taken care of, you can move around a little while shooting and really take advantage of the SMGs better movement speed and rate of fire.

PUBG Mobile Tips and Tricks To Improve Your Aim

PUBG Mobile is one of the most popular games in India, and more and more people are trying it out every day. We’ve already covered a bunch of topics, ranging from best settings to the best attachments for some of the most popular weapons, but no matter what weapon you pick, one thing that’s not going to change is how you aim. And that’s why it’s important to improve your aim so you can net more kills and get that chicken dinner. Hopefully, this guide will help you do just that.

Hold Your Aim – Work on Accuracy

No matter how much ammo you have, play like every shot counts. Learn to hold your aim while spraying and work on your overall accuracy. This will be crucial for your survival as PUBG Mobile is all about killing your enemies before they have a chance to kill you.

Adapt with the Weapon – Learn to Adjust Your Aim

PUBG Mobile has a horde of weapons to choose from, and each one plays differently than the rest. That’s why it’s important to be mindful of what weapon you’re using and adjust your aim according to the recoil and rate of fire of that specific weapon. You also need to be careful about the range you’re shooting at, because the bullet drop will affect how high you should aim depending on the distance.

The weapons also have different firing modes which you should remember. For instance, some weapons can only fire one shot at a time, while for others you can switch between single fire, burst fire and fully automatic. Each mode requires you to handle the weapon differently and remembering that will be very helpful for improving your aim in the long run.

Practice with new weapons to improve your aim

Whenever you come across a new weapon, you can try firing a couple of shots to get acquainted with the gun’s recoil and handling. Just make sure that you’re alone while doing this, otherwise you might give away your position and get killed by an enemy. Also, make sure you don’t do any target practice on your team mates.

The Practice Range is your Best Friend

Take full advantage of the Practice Range as you can try any weapon on stationary and moving targets for as long as you’d like. It’s a great place to learn how to play with a new weapon, or improve your shooting with a gun you already like to use. Sure, it’s not the same as testing it out on the real battlefield againt actual opponents, but it can still help you a lot as far as improving your aim is concerned. You can study weapon recoil, try out different weapon attachments to see which ones are the best for your weapon and your play style, and basically practice and play with different weapons, both old and new, to your heart’s content.

Track Your Target

The chances that your enemy will keep standing once you start shooting at them are pretty low, so it’ll be helpful for you to learn to track the moving enemies properly.

  • If your enemy is running and is far, try aiming for the body instead of the head, as it will provide you a bigger target making it easier for you to aim. In close quarters it’ll be easier to track them as you’ll be able to see them better, and you can try aiming directly for the head.
  • Another important element for tracking enemies is being able to predict their movements. It’s not always easy, but if you look closely you might be able to see some pattern in how your enemy is running. Don’t aim at where the enemy is, aim at where he’s going to be. If you see them running across while you’re aiming at them, try shooting a little ahead of them to make sure your shots don’t land behind them.

Adjust Your Aim for Bullet Drop

If you’re playing at a longer range, you should familiarize yourself with bullet drop, which basically means the bullet will fall in height the farther it goes. In order to compensate for bullet drop, you need to aim a little higher than where you actually want to shoot. The amount of bullet drop depends on how far your enemy is, so it will probably be helpful for you to practice with long range weapons as much as you can in order to get a hang of it.

Customize Your Sensitivity Settings

PUBG Mobile has a comprehensive Sensitivity Settings menu, and you should take full advantage of it. You can set different sensitivity levels for hip firing, each scope, ADS and they all work separately which means you can set every single one of them based on your preferences.

  • Lower sensitivity is usually better for close and mid-range combat as you don’t want to move too much while trying to focus on your kills. Aiming at long range might be an issue with this though.
  • For long-range combat, you might try going with higher sensitivity as it will make aiming ahead and predicting your shots a little easier, making your net more kills on moving targets.

Free Fire Best Guns and Weapon Combos Guide

As we covered in our last guide, Garena Free Fire has a lot of great guns to pick and choose from, and you can have a lot of fun with them depending on your play style. So, in this guide, we’ll talk about what we think are some of the best weapon combinations for your loadout.

AWM + MP40 + M1873 Shotgun

The AWM along with the MP40 is a deadly combination which can make you an unstoppable force at both close-range and long-range combat. Getting your hands on the AWM can be a little tough as you can only find it in airdrops, but if you manage to find one, you can be a killing machine. It’s a deadly weapon at long range, thanks to its high damage output. Since its firing rate is pretty low, you should pair it with a fast firing SMG like the MP40. The MP40 is really good for close-range combat as its high rate of fire can deal a lot of damage. And you can keep the M1873 Shotgun in addition to these two for a bigger advantage in close quarters.

Scar/Famas + MP40 + M1873 Shotgun

The Famas and the MP40 is a very easily obtainable combination in the game. And in case you’re not able to find a Famas, you can use the SCAR rifle in its place too, but we prefer the Famas ourselves. It’s a great rifle with an impressive firing rate, damage and recoil, making it really good at medium to long-range combat. And for close quarters you can choose the MP40. Like before, you can pick the M1873 along with these two guns for its high damage output and you should be good to go.

M4A1 + M1014 + M1873 shotgun

Our favourite rifle in Free Fire is also one that you can get pretty easily, the M4A1. This rifle is perfect even without any attachments and it’s incredibly easy to use. It’s well-balanced, and you can have a lot of fun with it. Pair it up with the M1014 shotgun to help you at close-range combat. It’s the best shotgun in the game, with a high damage output and goes perfectly with the M4A1.

AK47+ M1014

A lot of people absolutely love the AK47 and there’s a simple reason behind that: It has a very high damage output. But handling it is not so easy. If you think you can handle it, then by all means use it, because with Level 3 attachments it can be absolutely lethal. To pair it up, go with the M1014. The AK47 will help you at medium and long-range combat while the M1014 will be perfect for close quarters fighting. If you work on your aim you can take down almost anyone with this combination.

Groza + M79 + M1873 Shotgun

Our last combination is also the deadliest: The Groza paired up with the M79. You can only find them in airdrops. Both of them are the best guns in their own categories, and together they’re deadlier than anything else. The Groza has an extremely high rate of fire and its damage is pretty good too. The recoil is easily manageable and you’ll be able to get some kills with ease.

So, these were our picks for the best gun combinations you can pick aroun in Free Fire. Click here to check out our guide for the best guns in the game, and stay tuned for more guides, and tips and tricks for all your favourite games.

Top 7 Tips To Push Your Rank To Heroic in Free Fire

Pushing your rank in Garena Free Fire can be a daunting task, and getting to Heroic is by no means an easy feat. That’s why we’ve prepared these handy tips to help you get those kills and push your rank to Heroic without a lot of hassle. Without further ado, let’s take a look at them.

1. Run and Gun

The first tip, which is also our favourite and highly useful is about how to get up quickly when you’re in the prone state. Normally, if you go prone and are lying down, it takes some time to get up. But if you didn’t know, there’s a trick that lets you stand up almost immediately. If you press the Run and the Gun buttons together at the same time, your player will stand up instantly and start running. This is a very useful technique in almost any fight where you need to change positions quickly. In some cases, it can even save your life, as you can get up and start running immediately if someone starts firing at you.

2. Play on the edge of the shrink zone

Generally, the shrink zone in Free Fire would be your biggest enemy, but if you play smart, it can actually be pretty helpful for you. To take advantage of the shrink zone, you need to be able to play right at its edge. This will make sure you don’t have to worry about a lot of angles. If you’re in the center, you’ll have to be mindful of all directions and keep looking around all the time, but if you’re at the edge, that won’t be the case. Because most of the time, enemies won’t be able to sneak up on you from the back or the side, giving you some room to breathe. Additionally, you’ll also find a lot of people panicking and running into the safe zone from outside and you’ll be able to pick them off as they’ll be more worried about making it to the safe zone and may not pay much attention to you. 

3. Practice with the Sniper to Improve Your Aim

If you want to improve your aim in Free Fire, the best way to about it is by using the Sniper Rifle. You might find it a bit difficult to use it in the beginning, but it’ll be really helpful in the long run. Mainly because with all the other gun, you can hold your aim while spraying and still manage to get some kills. But with the Sniper, each shot counts, so you’ll automatically pay more attention and be more careful while aiming.

4. Keep your close-range weapon as Primary

Always keep a close-ranged weapon on you in the game, for instance a shotgun like the M104, or an SMG, like the MP40. And make sure that your close-range weapon is always in the top slot, as your primary weapon. This will help you in fights when you need to swtich from your grenade or secondary weapon if an enemy suddenly comes right in front of you, increasing your chances to get a kill.

5. Don’t ‘Jumpshoot’

One common mistake that a lot of people make is that they jump while shooting, aka jumpshoot. A lot of times it doesn’t work and instead, makes it easier for the enemy to kill you. When you’re jumping, you can’t move a lot while you’re in the air so it becomes easier for your enemy to aim at you. That’s why we suggest you to stay on the ground and try to kill your opponents as quickly as you can.

6. Aim up when spraying to get headshots

One way to finish your enemies is by getting headshots on them. And an easy way to do that is to aim up while spraying, towards their head. Normally you’ll be tempted to pull down while spraying, but if you hold and try to aim up instead, it can do wonders for your game and net you some quick kills.

7. Play Solo vs Solo To Push Your Rank

If your aim is to get to Heroic and you’re trying to push your rank, the best thing to do is play solo games. This way you won’t have to worry about teammates, whether they’re your own or the enemy squads’. Getting kills will be much easier and you won’t have to take any unnecessary risks. 

Following these tips and tricks will hopefully improve your game significantly, helping you reach the Heroic bracket fast. Stay tuned for more Free Fire guides, and don’t forget to check regularly for helpful tips for all your favourite games.

Garena Free Fire Best Graphics and Sensitivity Settings Guide

Garena Free Fire has a lot of settings and options to play around with before you even get into a match, and if you’re stuck wondering what are the best settings to go with, don’t worry. This guide will provide you a good walkthrough of the settings menu, all its different options and what do to with them. So without further ado, let’s dive into it.

Basic Settings

In the Basic Settings menu, set your Graphics to Standard if you’re using a budget or midrange phone, if you have a high end device, you can set it to Ultra. This will help improve the game’s graphics and you’ll be able to spot the enemies more easily. If you feel like your phone is lagging on the Standard setting, go ahead and set it to Smooth.

For Brightness, we recommend keeping the setting on Very Bright because if the brightness is high, you’ll be able to see your opponents better as you’ll have better vision in darker areas and they won’t be able to hide.

There’s an option for High FPS as well, and if your phone can handle it, keep it on High as it will make your game run smoother and you’ll find it much easier to aim.

It’s best to keep Shadows on Off because it will only reduce your average FPS and in this game, for the most part it won’t even make much of a difference.

If you have a phone with a notch on the screen, turn the Notch option on in the menu.

Finally, for the Mini-Map option, set it to Rotating. This will make sure you never get confused regarding which direction you need to turn to next, or from where you’re being attacked by an enemy. As keeping an eye on your mini-map is important in the game, it’ll come in handy if you always have your bearings.

Sensitivity Settings

Now, let’s talk about the sensitivity settings. Here, we have no problem recommending the default settings as we find that they’re pretty good as such. There are no issues while aiming. In case you feel that the camera movement is a bit too slow or too fast, you should test it out and adjust the settings according to what you find comfortable.

Controls Settings

Coming to the Controls settings. Here also you’ll see a lot of options, but we’ll tell you which ones are the most important for you to set in the beginning.

First things first, keep the Aim Precision setting on default because it’ll make it much easier for you to aim. The Precise on Scope option will help you when you’re aiming without a scope but when you use a scope there won’t be any aim assist. Full Control means you won’t get any aim assist at all at any point.

Most people keep the Aim Precision on default in this game because it makes aiming a lot easier and you can get a lot more headshots.

Next, keep the In-Game tips on Simplified. This will keep the warnings and countdowns on the side instead of the middle of the screen, meaning you won’t have to worry about distractions and you’ll be able to focus on the game and killing your enemies.

The final setting here is the Auto Parachute. It’s better it keep it on as you won’t have to worry about deploying your parachute as you head down at full speed after jumping off from the plane. You’ll be able to land faster and get your hands on some good loot.

And this was our guide for the best graphics, sensitivity and control settings for Garena Free Fire. Let us know what you think in the comments and do share your feedback about the guide and the game as well. And don’t forget to check regularly for more Free Fire guides as we’re regularly updating our website with more tips and tricks for all your favourite games like PUBG Mobile, Free Fire, COD Mobile, Clash Royale and more.

PUBG Mobile M416 Best Attachments Guide

PUBG Mobile has a lot of weapons to offer players, and each is just as fun to use as the next one. And one of these weapons is the popular, highly versatile M416, which is famously considered as the all-round weapon. The recoil for this weapon is relatively low, the damage is high and it can be used equally effectively at both long range and short range combat.

The M416’s biggest strength is its versatility when it comes to attachments. If you’re able to find the right attachments for this gun, it can adapt to all kinds of combat, making it perfect for any situation.

Before we get to the attachments, let’s take a look at the base stats of the M416.

The base hit damage of the M416 is 41, but while spraying the DPS (Damage per Second) can go up to 476. Combine that with the low recoil, and this can be a pretty deadly weapon for your enemies.

Looking at the recoil pattern, you can see that the M416’s vertical recoil is pretty stable and the horizontal recoil is almost second to none. Thanks to this low recoil pattern and the high damage output, the M416 is known as the all-rounder in PUBG Mobile. But the story doesn’t end here, because it can be improved even more with the help of attachments.

The M416 supports all attachments, which makes it highly customizable, one of the most versatile weapons in PUBG Mobile.

Muzzle – Compensator/Suppressor

For the muzzle, the best option on the M416 is either the compensator or the suppressor. If you prefer to fight close quarters, then go with the suppressor because it will help you sneak up on your enemies.  

The compensator, on the other hand, will improve the handling of the gun, so if you’re more into long-range combat, then it’s better to go with the compensator instead of the suppressor.

Lower Rail – Vertical Grip and Angled Grip

Now let’s take a look at the lower rail attachments. For this, your best options with the M416 are the Vertical Grip and the Angled Grip.  

If you’re someone who likes to spray a lot, then the angled grip is the better option, because it helps reduce the horizontal spray which can be a little hard to predict.

But if you’re more into firing with the single tap, then the vertical grip is a much better option because it helps in reducing the vertical recoil, making your shots more accurate and turning you into a killing machine.

Magazine – Extended Quickdraw

When it comes to the Magazine, the Extended Quickdraw Mag will always be the best option, as it increases your magazine bullet capacity and reduces your reload time at the same time, giving you the best of both worlds.

Stock – Tactical Stock

There is only one option when it comes to stock, the Tactical Stock which helps in reducing recoil so go ahead and put it on the M416 as this is the only thing you’ll get.

PUBG Mobile 13 Tips To Win Chicken Dinners

A Chicken Dinner is something that even vegetarians want now that PUBG Mobile has taken the gaming world by storm. While the initial few games can be easy, the difficulty slowly ramps up making it harder and harder to get that fabled Chicken Dinner. So, here are a few tips that you may not know of to help you get that delicious and satisfying win in PUBG Mobile.

1. Superman Punches are great for taking out enemies quickly

Superman punches are the punches you throw when you run, jump and punch a person which has you swing at a person while your mid-air. Not only does this look like a solid, meaty punch, it also deals a lot of damage and is great for taking out enemies early on when you are unarmed.

2. Always move when in the open, stay still in cover

Survival is the name of the game and you cannot survive if you’re an easy target. When out in the open always be on the move and try to not stand still. A moving target is much harder to hit as compared to a standing target. When shot at, start running in a zig-zag pattern while keeping the intervals at which you change direction and how much you direction random to throw off the person shooting at you. In a similar fashion, if you’re in cover don’t move too much and try to keep all of your body in cover and at angles from where it is hard to shoot you.

3. Use the Eyeball Tool

The eyeball tool in TPP in many ways acts like your mouse/ right stick of a controller. Use it to look around you to spot enemies and to look from cover without actually moving. This comes in very handy when landing to see how many other people are landing around you without actually changing your direction of movement.

4. Enable the Peek and Fire option and use it.

Leaning is such an amazing mechanic and can give you the edge in numerous situations which makes the fact that it is turned off by default quite baffling. Turn it on from the settings and proceed to peek angles without exposing your whole body. This works great for shooting out of cover while still keeping your body hidden and can be great during encounters with the enemy.

5. Make sure to listen to Audio Cues.

Another thing that sets good players apart from the crowd is the use of Audio. Always try to use earphones/headphones to pick up on audio cues which can help you determine if there are enemies nearby. You can easily pinpoint the direction of gunshots and footsteps if you have your earphones on to gain an advantage on an enemy who might have not spotted you yet. Use this along with watching your minimap to see enemy blips that are formed due to gunshots and you should have the edge over them.

6. Try to have one Unscoped and one Scoped weapon.

This might confuse a few people but hear me out. While a scoped weapon is great for ranged combat and to take out enemies without being spotted, when it comes to close quarters it can be your downfall. If you decide to Aim Down Sight(ADS) with a scoped weapon, your scope will magnify the view and make it hard for you to shoot an enemy who might be close to you and moving. Having an unscoped weapon can help alleviate this issue.

8. Loot grenades, flashbangs, molotovs, and smoke grenades.

A lot of people tend to skip over Grenade Utility. Don’t do that. Try to get at least one of each because they all have their uses and can be what gets you the chicken dinner. An enemy in the building? Chuck in a Grenade or Molotov. Flash your enemies with a Flashbang or use it to create a decoy on the radar so that you can surprise an enemy. Use a smoke grenade to act as a cover or use it to draw an enemy’s attention giving you the opportunity to strike.

9. A damaged high-level vest is worse than an undamaged low-level vest.

A Level 3 vest is better than a Level 1 vest, that’s common knowledge but a Level 3 Vest that’s taken 50% damage is worse than a Level 1 vest that has taken no damage. So, as a rule of the thumb switch to an Undamaged vest if your current Vest has taken more than 50% damage.

10. Change seats in cars to heal and also to use it as a trap.

If you’re driving a car and have taken damage, quickly switch seats to heal up and get back to driving. Another good way to use the seat changing is to hide in the back seat of a car and wait for someone to approach the car after which you kill them. It’s a little tricky but a great tactic to have if you ever need to do something like this.

12. Building windows can be dangerous.

If an enemy spots you and they’re in a window, try to not go close to it to lob a grenade or jump in. Chances are that they’ll jump out and get you when you try to do so by catching you completely off guard. While this isn’t always the case, skilled players usually do this to catch an enemy by surprise.

13. Don’t stay in a building in the final circle.

While it may seem like a safe option, a building can turn from a safe haven to your tomb very quickly when in the final circle. Usually, be the endgame most players tend to be loaded with utility so they tend to have Grenades and Molotovs. They can chuck in nades to either flush you out or to bomb you to death which can leave you so agonizingly close to a chicken dinner.

Those are just a few tips to help you in your quest of winning a chicken dinner. However, the best way to get a chicken dinner is to play the game as much as you can so that you get better as a player and can employ these tips without even thinking about it.

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? Let us know down below and check out the links below if you’re looking for more PUBG Mobile guides, or tips for any of your favourite games, like Call of Duty Mobile, Garena Free Fire or Clash Royale.

How to Effectively Use Health Boosters, Blue Circles and Muzzle Attachments in PUBG Mobile

PUBG Mobile has some very fine-tuned gameplay mechanics and elements, and while a lot of people are playing the game, it’s possible they might not know about them or it’s something to which they haven’t paid a lot of attention. That’s why today we’re going to tell you in detail about some of the lesser known items and gameplay elements in PUBG mobile, namely the health boosters, the blue zone and the attachments for the muzzle.

Health Boosters

PUBG Mobile has three types of health boosters(Not Health Restorers like Med-Kits). The Energy Drink, The Pain Killers and the Adrenaline Shot. All three of them give you different amounts of health back so let’s take a look at them.

  • Energy Drink: This fills your boost bar to 40%. This in total restores 23 HP to your character
  • Pain Killers: This fills your boost bar to 60%. This in total restores 40HP to your character
  • Adrenaline Syringe: This fills your boost bar to 100%. This in total restores 86 HP to your character along with a movement boost for 2 minutes.

Blue Zones

The Blue Zone has a total of 9 circles, with the 9th one being the final circle. Each circle does a set amount of damage per second which you could use to your advantage so let’s see the data.

  • 1st Circle: 0.4 Damage/Sec
  • 2nd Circle: 0.6 Damage/Sec
  • 3rd Circle: 0.8 Damage/Sec
  • 4th Circle: 1 Damage/Sec
  • 5th Circle: 3 Damage/Sec
  • 6th Circle: 5 Damage/Sec
  • 7th Circle: 8 Damage/Sec
  • 8th Circle: 11 Damage/Sec
  • Final Circle: 14 Damage/Sec

Muzzle Attachments: Compensator, Flash Hider and Supressor

There are 3 types of muzzle attachments for your SMGs and AR’s muzzle, namely the Compensator, the Flash Hider, and the Suppressor. If you’re confused as to which one to use and when this will hopefully help you.

  • Suppressor: The Suppressor muffles the sound of gunshots and completely hides the muzzle flash when you fire your gun. This makes it harder for enemies to pinpoint your location.
    Weapons that you should use the Suppressor on are as follows: Kar98k, M24, AWM, M16, SCAR-L, M416, Gorza and the Mini-14.
  • Compensator: This helps reduce weapon recoil pattern by 25% which can make certain weapons-usable like the AKM. It also has further Horizontal and Vertical Recoil reduction which varies from Snipers to ARs and SMGs.
    Weapons that you should use the Compensator on are as follows: Uzi, UMP, Vector, AKM, SKS, Mk14 and Mini-14.
  • Flash Hider: The Flash Hider’s main job is to remove the muzzle flash from your weapon but it does not completely hide it. It does help reduce all weapon recoil by 10% so there’s that. If you have either of the above two attachments, they tend to make the Flash Hider redundant so stick with those.

That’s a bit of information regarding some of the game mechanics, if you’d like to see more such mechanics broken down, let us know. If you’d like tips about the game, check out the links below.

Top 5 PUBG Mobile Tips To Outplay Your Opponents

PUBG Mobile is a huge game in India, and with the number of players increasing by leaps and bounds everyday, you can face a lot of competition in the game. So, it’s always good if you have an upper hand over your opponents, and that’s why we’ve prepared this handy guide of the top 5 tips and tricks that might be able to help you outplay your opponents in PUBG Mobile.

1. Cook Grenades, Don’t Throw Them Immediately

Cooking your grenades can be the difference between killing an enemy or not. Hold the grenade in your hand and throw it when the timer reaches about 2 or 1-second based on your distance. Ideally, make the grenade explode as soon as it reaches your target instead of it sitting there for a few seconds which allows the enemy to escape.

2. Block The Bunker Tunnels

If you know there are enemies in the Bunker Tunnels, block the entrance/exit with a vehicle and then blow it up. This will trap the enemies inside which could potentially kill them if they’re outside the blue circle.

3. How to get Extra ammo

When you’re picking up ammo for a gun, exchange the gun twice to get extra ammo already loaded in the gun. This could give you an extra clip or two, which can easily be the difference between life and death, especially towards the end of the game.

4. You can Hide In the Tree near the roof at School

This tree near the school can be jumped onto and used as a vantage point for unsuspecting players. Get on there, hide and wait for your opportunity to strike and pick off enemies at your discretion. Don’t stick around too long on the tree though.

5. Blocking the Bridge can be an Effective Tactic

Blocking a bridge is a viable tactic but it often makes people go another way instead of using a bridge. If you want to really ambush players, don’t block the bridge and hide behind the vehicles and attack the enemy when they approach. Or, you could also climb the bridge part way by using the side ledge and get on top of it.

Top 5 Clash Royale Tips & Tricks to Help You Win

Clash Royale is a very competitive game around building a good deck and being quick enough to make decisions based on a bit of randomness and correct predictions. Here are few Clash Royale tips to help you get better at the game.

Deck Building

The most important part of the game that can win you games against people whom you thought you had no chance against. A smart deck that is balanced and plays to your strength will be extremely more beneficial to you than just having a random assortment of strong cards. Keep experimenting with your deck and always remember to keep it balanced. You’ll want every deck of yours to have at least one of the following cards: Low Elixir Ground Troop, Ranged Troop, High-Hitpoint Troop, Flying Troop, Damage-Causing Spell and a troop for Countering.

Initial Tactics

Once the match starts, assess your cards and determine whether or not you want to go on the offensive. Always going on the offensive is not a smart move so quickly assess the situation and if you think waiting for your opening and countering is a better move then do that. While there is luck involved in the game, there is also a lot of strategy and quick thinking required that can help you turn the tide in your favour.

Read Your Opponent

Pay attention to the cards your opponent uses and watch for patterns. This can lead to both, great offensive moves and defensive counters both which the opponent might not expect. Pay attention to the meta of the game which will help you understand your opponent’s moves and deck. If you time your troop deployment correctly based on correct predictions, the opponent will be caught off-guard, giving you the advantage.

Attack in Pairs

Sending in a lone troop to attack the enemy can lead to failures in most cases so try to send at least another one to assist them. One good strategy is to drop a troop at the back the arena and wait for them to make their way into enemy territory while your elixir charges up and you can also see how the enemy reacts to your troop deployment, and once they cross the bridge, you can send in support to assist them.

Watch and Learn

Watch people on Youtube and take note of their decks and strategize. Copying their decks is a good start to understanding how they play but make sure to make changes to it because many other players will also be using their deck if they’re famous. Other than that, make sure to watch your own old matches to see where you made mistakes, where you predicted wrong and to see how you can improve.

Those are a few tips to help you improve at the game that will take some time and patience but if you keep at it, you will be getting better sooner than later.

PUBG Mobile Best Sensitivity and Controls Guide

In our previous guide, we told you about the best control and layout settings for PUBG Mobile. But the game has a comprehensive menu of options and sliders when it comes to sensitivity settings too. And in this guide, we’re going to take you through it, along with the control settings and tell you the best settings for you to choose.

Sensitivity Settings

While you’re in the game, swipe your thumb from the middle part of the screen till the edge of your screen. If your camera is rotating about 180 degrees which are directly behind you, you’re good. If it is too much or too little, you might want to adjust standard sensitivity accordingly so that you’re consistently close to 180 degrees.

  • Look at one spot and try to aim at it consistently at least 10 times. If it feels too slow, turn up your standard sensitivity. Too fast, then decrease it. Keep doing this until you find a comfortable sensitivity and then try aiming at other specific spots from a single place to see if you’re comfortable with your new setting. 

Before you jump into a match with the new settings, it’s always best to go into the training area and try out the weapons and get some practice with your new sensitivity settings. If something feels off, you can jump back in the menu and tweak it easily. Make sure you check sensitivity for both hip fire and ADS. And if you’ve changed the sensitivity for the scopes, be sure to practice with that too.

Controls

  • Here you should set it to advanced mode since it doesn’t auto-fire.
  • We highly recommend using Advanced because you have more control over when to shoot because sometimes, you don’t want to shoot someone and want to sneak behind them or be stealthy. Plus, auto shooting just wastes bullets which can be the difference between winning and losing.
  • In Advanced, the shooting met is set it to custom where all weapons are set to Hip Fire besides Sniper Rifle which is set to ADS. This will allow you to scope up guns only when you want to. So if you’re in a close-range situation, you won’t have to un-scope to hip fire. 
  • For Sniper, having it set to ADS helps when you need to do a quick scope shot or when you just want to get a single shot and quickly get out of the scope. This can be extremely helpful with sniping so if you’re a sniper player you should try this out.
  • In a similar fashion, you can use the aim button when you’ve set it to ADS to stay scoped in after you take a shot. This is useful for holding angles and when you know there’s going to be multiple enemies that you will have to take out.

The same settings can be used in BR Mode.

Free Fire Best Weapons Guide: Which is the Right Gun For You?

Garena Free Fire has a lot of guns to choose from, and it can be a daunting task to figure out which one is right for you. That’s why we’ve prepared this handy guide that will take you through the best weapons available in the game and help you choose the perfect one for you based on your preferred play style. 

We’ll start off with the decent ones and build up to which ones we think are the absolute best. You will find guns from all the categories here and pick any of them, because ultimately the best weapon for you will be one that you feel the most comfortable using.

MP40

Let’s start off with the MP40. This is hands down the best SMG in Free Fire which is perfect for close-range combat. Thanks to its high rate of fire, it can easily shred through any number of enemies should they dare to come close to you. It’s damage output is pretty good too. It’s very useful for all kinds of players and keeping it in your primary slot will make sure you don’t have to worry about close-range combat.

M1014

If you like using Shotguns, then the M1014 is the best shotgun you’ll find in Free Fire. It is absolutely lethal at close range. With its high damage and decent rate of fire it can make quick work of your enemies without running a sweat. And, it’s pretty easy to find in the battlefield, so even if you don’t normally use shotguns but can’t get your hands on an MP40, the M1014 will make a solid substitute for you.

AWM

The AWM is the best Sniper Rifle in the game. So much so, that simply its name is enough to instill fear in your enemies. Finding it is not an easy task at all, but if you can manage to get your hands on it you should definitely use it because it has incredibly high damage output. It can feel slow but a single shot of this gun can be enough to take your enemy down. So work on your aim and you’ll be killing left and right with the AWM in no time.

M60

The M60 rifle has extremely high damage output. It is a great rifle which you can spray and take down enemies easily because it has low recoil. It’s rate of fire is pretty good too, and that combination makes it a solid option for players who like to spray.

AK47

The AK47 is an assault rifle that needs no introduction at all. This is the favourite weapon of a lot of people because of its high damage. But one issue with this gun is its high recoil, so the best way to use it is with Level 3 attachments. Thanks to the recoild, you have a higher chance of taking headshots using the AK47 which is another reason why people love this gun.

Scar

The SCAR is also a great assault rifle with a high rate of fire. This can deal a lot of damage to your enemies but even this is best used with Level 3 attachments. However, using this is a little easier than the AK47, so you might be able to net kills more easily with the SCAR.

FAMAS

FAMAS is another solid assault rifle whose damage is a little higher than the SCAR. Its rate of fire is pretty good too so if you can find this, we recommend it over the SCAR any day.  

M4A1

The M4A1 is the most well-balanced assault rifle you can find in Free Fire. It can be used very effectively even without any attachments, thanks to its high damage, high rate of fire and low recoil. This would be the go-to assault rifle for beginners or people who don’t want to get too much into weapon statistics and just want to have fun running and gunning with their friends.

Groza

The Groza is hands down the best assault rifle you’ll find in Free Fire. The sad part is, that you can only find it in air drops, but it if you, go with it because it’s better than all the other assault rifles. It has a high rate of fire, high damage and very low recoil. So if you can get to an airdrop and loot it, by all means do it because it will be worth it.

M79

The last weapon on our list the M79 grenade launcher. You won’t be able to find this easily in the field, but in case you do, be prepared to literally blow your enemies away. Its damage is unsurprisingly very high, and using it is a piece of cake. If you’re the only person left in your squad and you’re up against teams of 2 or more people, the M79 can be an absolute godsend, because it you can use it well you’ll be able to take multiple people down with a single shot.

These were our picks for the best weapons available in Garena Free Fire. Stay tuned for more weapons guides and other tips and tricks for all your favourite games, and let us know your favourite guns from Free Fire in the comments.

PUBG Mobile Best Controls Settings Guide

PUBG Mobile is an incredibly fun game. It lets you play by yourself or with friends, giving you tons of options for how you want to play and enjoy the game. And the settings that you can customize to your liking have a lot of options too, so we’ve prepared this guide to help you figure out the best controls for your game. We’ll take you through all the options, giving our suggestion as to which ones we think are the best and from there you can customize according to your play style. Let’s dive into it.

Controls

You have three options here, and you can pick any of them depending on how you want to play.

  • The first one uses the left part of the screen to move, while the right half is used for aiming. There’s a separate button on the right half for firing your weapon.
  • The second option uses the left part of the screen to move, like the previous option, but the right side has a button which is used to both aim and fire the weapon
  • The third option has a circular button for movement on the left part of the screen, while the right half of the screen has the button for shooting. We recommend going with the third one, where you have fixed buttons for both movement and fire. This will give you better control over your player character as accidentally touching the screen outside the button won’t move your character or fire your gun, and you won’t have to stick to just one side for aiming, making it more flexible.
  • If you want to switch, just hop to the controls panel in the settings. And if you’re not sure which one is right for you, you can try them in the training area before picking.
  • Once you’ve picked your preferred control setting, tap on Customize. This will open another screen with the layout of all the buttons, showing them as they’ll appear on the screen in the game.
  • Here you can pick up individual elements and move them to positions that are the most comfortable to you while playing. Don’t be afraid to play around with them and experiment till you find a layout that suits you.
  • You can have separate layouts for both third person perspective (TPP) and first person perspective (FPP). So if you want a particular layout for one mode, but not for the other, you can do that easily.
  • Once you’re done setting your layout, be sure to tap on save to make sure it changes.

With that sorted, we can now move on to the vehicle settings.

Vehicle Settings

Here, you’ll see three options again.

  • The first one where you have separate buttons for moving forward and back on the left, and two more buttons on the right half of the screen, to turn the vehicle.
  • The second option has a single button that controls all movement, whether this going forward or back, or to turn the vehicle in any direction.
  • The third option has a steering button on the left side of the screen to steer the vehicle, while the right side of the screen has separate buttons to take it forward, brake and bringing it backwards.

And that brings us to the end of our Controls and Sensitivity settings guide for PUBG Mobile. Keep checking back for more guides for all your favourite games. You can also find our best Graphics Settings guide for PUBG Mobile by clicking here.

Call of Duty Mobile Best Controls And Sensitivity Settings Guide

In the last guide, we told you about the best graphics settings for optimal performance in Call of Duty. Once you sort that out, the next thing on the list is to figure out the best settings for Controls and Sensitivity. And that’s exactly what we’re doing in this guide. You can check out our Graphics settings guide here, and if you’ve already done that, let’ cover the sensitivity, starting with the controls.

Controls

  • Let’s start off with the Controls Tab. Here you should set it to advanced mode since it doesn’t auto-fire.
  • We highly recommend using Advanced because you have more control over when to shoot because sometimes, you don’t want to shoot someone and want to sneak behind them or be stealthy. Plus, auto shooting just wastes bullets which can be the difference between winning and losing.
  • In Advanced, the shooting met is set it to custom where all weapons are set to Hip Fire besides Sniper Rifle which is set to ADS. This will allow you to scope up guns only when you want to. So if you’re in a close-range situation, you won’t have to un-scope to hip fire. 
  • For Sniper, having it set to ADS helps when you need to do a quick scope shot or when you just want to get a single shot and quickly get out of the scope. This can be extremely helpful with sniping so if you’re a sniper player you should try this out.
  • In a similar fashion, you can use the aim button when you’ve set it to ADS to stay scoped in after you take a shot. This is useful for holding angles and when you know there’s going to be multiple enemies that you will have to take out.

The same settings can be used in BR Mode.

Sensitivity

Onwards we go to the awaited Sensitivity tab.

  • Here, set rotation mode to Fixed Speed. This is because it will train your muscle memory. So you will know exactly how much to move your finger to move a certain distance. After this is set, go into a game and then start moving the camera. 
  • Another way of testing your sensitivity is this: swipe your thumb from the middle part of the screen till the edge of your screen. If your camera is rotating about 180 degrees which is directly behind you, you’re good. If it is too much or too little, you might want to adjust standard sensitivity accordingly so that you’re consistently close to 180 degrees.

After you find that move onto the next sensitivity exercise.

  • Look at one spot and try to aim at it consistently at least 10 times. If it feels too slow, turn up your standard sensitivity. Too fast, then decrease it. Keep doing this until you find a comfortable sensitivity and then try aiming at other specific spots from a single place to see if you’re comfortable with your new setting. 

Then do the same exercise for the Aiming Down Sights setting, then again when using a tactical scope and again when using a sniper scope. For sniper scope, the sensitivity will usually be a bit lower than your normal sensitivity so keep that in mind.

You can set pretty much the same settings for the Firing Sensitivity tab which kicks in when you fire your gun.

And that’s about it. These were some of the best settings for control and sensitivity in the current version of CoD Mobile that will help you become the best player among your friends and maybe even the world. Stay tuned for our weapons and attachment guides.
