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

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

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

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.
