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.
