Call of Duty: Modern Warfare M4A1 All-Rounder Guide – Best Loadout For Beginners

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has tons of guns to choose from, and each gun can have a variety of loadouts, so deciding what weapon to choose can be a daunting task. So we’ve prepared this handy all-rounder guide for the M4A1, one of the most versatile weapons in the game. This loadout should be able to help you no matter what the situation or your preferred playstyle is.

The M4A1 is one of the best guns in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. It is very versatile and is available from the start. It’s also got an easy recoil and handles quite well which makes it a good weapon to main. With a huge number of attachments available, here’s one of the best loadouts for this rifle.

The All-Rounder

So this loadout is all about having the most all-rounded performance from this rifle. 

Here’s the 5 attachments that you need to put on this rifle.

  • Barrel: Use the Stock M16 Grenadier Barrel
  • Optic: Operator Reflex Sight
  • Stock: Singuard Arms Invader
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Rear Grip: Granulated Grip Tape

This weapon loadout is all about having good power, good range, and decent recoil reduction. The only thing that suffers here is mobility but that’s fine since you’re getting much better weapon handling in return.

Once you’ve equipped these attachments, you’ll want to pick a secondary gun. Here I would suggest using  the 1911 handgun which will help you get out of some tight spots when you need to reload. 

Onwards we go to perks. Here you’ll want to use EOD for Perk 1. This perk will increase your resistance to non killstreak explosives which means that youll be able to stay alive for longer and take a bit more damage on the battlefield.

The next perk you’ll want is Hardline in Perk 2. This will reduce the cost of killstreaks by 1. This means that you’ll be able to get killstreaks faster.

The final perk you’ll want is Battle Hardened in Perk 3. This increases your resistance to flashbangs, stun grenades and EMPs, which could be the difference between surviving or dying.

All of these perks together will allow you to be a bit more aggressive since you’ll take less explosive damage, be less affected by non-lethal equipment and also get killstreaks faster. 

For your lethal equipment, you can use a frag grenade. You can also use Molotov Cocktail or Semtex, it just depends on  how you tend to utilize your utility.

For non-lethal you can use either the flashbang or the stun grenade. This will help you when you’re pushing and when you need to gain a slight advantage going into combat situations. 

Now let’s see what killstreaks you should be using with this build.

The first one you’ll want to set is Cruise Missile. Thanks to your perk, you’ll get this at 4 kills so you’ll be able to deal quite a lot of damage, especially if they’re close together.

The next one you’ll want to set is a VTOL Jet. You’ll get this at 7 kills and this is such a great killstreak to have since it will assist you and your team so much.

The final kill streak is White Phosphorus which you’ll get at 9 kills. This is also extremely powerful and damages enemies all over the map.

Now, if you don’t have White Phosphorus unlocked you can use the UAV, chopper gunner or whichever one you feel will help you get an advantage.

And finally for your field upgrade, pick Dead Silence.

This will silence your footsteps and increase movement speed making you an absolute deadly force to be reckoned with.

This build is all about giving heavy damage and being versatile. 

If you’re in a match with a lot of enemy killstreaks like Choppers and Jets, you can swap the 1911 for an RPG to damage those. But mainly, you should be playing aggressively with a lot of movement and off-angle peeks. 

With a little bit of time and some practice, you’ll be an unstoppable monster with the M4A1. Now, this is just one of the builds with this weapon and there are so many more ways to use this gun.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare – 13 Tips To Get Started and Farm XP

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is back with a bang, and it has already restored the franchise to is former glory. Not only is it packed with an amazing story campaign, everything you love about the action-packed multiplayer is there too. The game has a ton of content, and you’ll have to play a lot of it to unlock it, so here’s a handy guide for those who are just getting started with the game for the best beginner experience.

Increase Mouse Sensitivity 

First things first, unlike most FPS games where you use a lower sensitivity, CoD requires you to up that a little bit because it’s just a way more fast paced title. There is going to be a lot of running, gunning and sliding, so having a higher mouse sensitivity will be very helpful when you need to aim quickly or turn around in case you find yourself in an ambush.

Use Weapons that you can control

Now you need to pick weapons that you can control because that’s how you’ll get a better feel of the game. At the start, it’s important to get your aim down and using weapons that you can control and then exploring from there.

Learn Weapon Recoil

This brings us to our next point, learn the recoils. While you don’t have to learn the exact pattern like in CS:GO, you’ll need to learn the rough idea of how the recoil pattern is. Most engagements are quick affairs so most of the time you won’t get to use that recoil control a lot.

Don’t try to hold sprays for too long

And speaking of fast engagements, holding down the spray for too long isn’t the best idea. If you don’t get the kill, stop the spray, reposition and look around because chances are you might just get flanked by someone else because of the fast-paced nature of the game.

Try not to spray and pray

Another important aspect is picking your fights. Don’t start shooting at the first enemy that you spot because a lot of times they’re far away or moving too quickly to get a proper shot on. This leads to missed shots as well as your position is exposed. Take the shot when you’re confident you can get the kill

Mount your gun when you get the chance

A great way to reduce recoil and get a better controller of your gun is by mounting the gun which can be done at the click of a button and is very quick. This allows you to hold angles without being exposed and also allows you to spray a bit more.

Aiming Down Sights is a must

Now if you’re not mounting your gun, try to Aim Down Sight whenever you shoot, which gives you better accuracy as compared to just hip firing. While you can use hip-fire efficiently, those are only viable with certain weapon load-outs. Otherwise, in most cases, ADS is the best way to shoot.

Run and Gun but Use Cover and Plan your movement

Running and Gunning is a part of the game but what’s important is picking where you run. If you just go into the center out in the open, chances are that you’ll get killed by someone who isn’t even in your field of view. This happens extremely often and can lead to a lot of frustration. So to stop that from happening, pick your routes properly so that you’re at least covered on one side and don’t have 100s of angles to cover when moving.

Gaining XP

Now that you’ve gotten the hang of the game, you will want to gain more XP so that you can unlock loadouts, weapons, and attachments. So here’s how you can quickly gain exp.

Play 20 Player TDM. Don’t play Cyber Attack

The game mode that is the best to get XP is the 20 Player Team Death Match. It allows you to get plenty of kills and the main objective in this mode is to get kills so it’s a win-win. The worst game mode to play to get XP is Cyber Attack. It takes too long and you don’t get a lot of kills in it.

Play the objective but try to get kills and stay alive

Kills are very important in this game as that’s the best way to get XP. Even though you should always play the objective, getting kills and staying alive is always great to farm XP, especially when you can use your killstreaks.

Destroy kill streaks whenever possible

And while you’re at it, another good way to get XP in matches is to destroy the enemy’s killstreaks. This means shooting UAVs and VTOLs. 

Complete challenges

Another way to get XP in the game is by completing challenges. These are some really easy ways to get XP and also allow you to experiment with your playstyle. Daily Challenges refresh every day so try to make sure to get them all to make the best out of it. 

You also have mission challenges that can get you up to 10,000 XP and each mission has about 5 objectives that you can complete.

Now you should be set to start your journey into Call of Duty Modern Warfare’s action-packed multiplayer and not feel left out or frustrated. If you want to read tips, tricks and guides for your favorite games you can download the GamingMonk app from the Google Play Store.

COD Mobile Best Weapons Guide (Assault Rifle, SMG, LMG, Shotgun)

From shotguns to assault rifles to SMGs to Sniper Rifles, Call of Duty Mobile has tons of weapons to choose from. No matter what your playstyle is, there’s something for everyone, but it can be a little daunting trying to figure out what’s the best choice of weapons for you. That’s why we’ve prepared this handy guide that’ll tell you about all the weapons in the game, and suggest which ones suit you the most.


Let’s start off with the Assault Rifle since it will most probably be the most used category of weapon.

The best in this is the AK117. It has a high rate of fire and decent damage with a very controllable recoil which makes spraying it a good choice. However you will only be able to unlock this game after multiple hours in the game at Rank 60.

So what should you until then? Well here’s how you should ideally change weapons.

You will start off the game with the M4 which is a decent weapon but once you reach Rank 23, you will unlock the AK47 and you should immediately switch to that. It has higher output damage than the M4 but it is slower than it and has a worse recoil. It’s still better though with a bit of recoil control and a foregrip.

After the Ak47 you can switch to the M16 when it unlocks at Rank 46 and then finally move onto the AK 117. However, moving on to the M16 and AK 117 is a personal choice but you should definitely try to move away from the M4.


Moving onto the Sniper weapons now, which will be another weapon class that many people use.

When you start the game, you’ll have access to the DL Q33 which is quite frankly an extremely good sniper rifle to use throughout your time playing the game as it has the highest damage output of any Sniper in the game. It’s a bolt action Sniper rifle which means that you will have to wait just a short bit before firing your next shot.

If you’re precise with your shots, it won’t matter much. However, if you would like a Sniper Rifle that allows you to shoot quickly after the last shot, you can use the M21 EBR which unlocks at Rank 29. It does less damage than the DL Q33 but it allows you to quickly fire another shot which means that you can be a bit more reckless with your aim.


Next up is the Submachine Class. Here, the best weapon to use is the AKS-74U. With a great firing rate and decent mid-range performance, this SMG is the best one to have when running around. It also unlocks early on at Rank 8 so you won’t have to settle for an alternative.

If you do want a weapon with an even higher fire-rate for close quarters, the MSMC which unlocks at Rank 33 is a good choice but it’s not very controllable. In a similar fashion,

The PDW-57 that you get as part of the daily login reward is also a great choice for an SMG with high damage.


Onwards to shotguns. Here, the Striker is arguably the best one to use due to its balance but it unlocks at Rank 52. It is a one-hit kill at close range but until you get your hands on it, you can use the BY15 which unlocks at Rank 15. The BY15 is a pump-action shotgun that deals more damage than the Striker and is fast enough to get off a second shot in case you miss the first time.


Finally, we have the LMGs. Here the UL 736 is the best thanks to its high damage and good long-range combat abilities. Sadly this unlocks at Rank 115. Until then you can use the RPD which unlocks at Rank 19 and does a decent job at mid to long-range combat. 

And with that, we wrap up our guide for the best weapons you can use in Call of Duty Mobile throughout the different categories. Stay tuned for more, as we will be putting up individual weapon guides as well, with the best attachments.

How to Play Call of Duty Mobile on PC (Tencent Gaming Buddy/Gameloop Emulator Guide)

Call of Duty Mobile is quickly gaining popularity and after being downloaded over 100+ million times after the first week, there’s a lot of players out there. But there are people who want to play it but aren’t comfortable playing on phone. This guide is for them and will tell you how to play Call of Duty Mobile on PC.

This game will run on low-end systems as well so you should be able to run it on any modern system.

So first, go onto google and search for Tencent Gaming Buddy. This will give you the proper link on top. We will also have the link in the description below. Tencent Gaming buddy is now known  as Game Loop and is the same emulator that runs PUBG Mobile and is the official emulator made by Tencent.

You will see a big download button, press that and it will start downloading. After it downloads, click on it to open it. Here, click on “Add icon” and press Start. Gameloop will now open.

From here, it is simple. On the top, you will find a search bar. Click on it and you should see the top recommended search to be Call of Duty Mobile. If it doesn’t show up then type in Call of Duty. Click on the game here and press Install on the right. Select international and press install.

Once the game is installed, it will launch giving you the option to play it. Once it loads, press Accept. Login with facebook and then choose your nickname and photo. After this, you will be directly put into the Tutorial for the game.

This will teach you the basics of the game. Once you complete this, you will get a basic tutorial of the menu system, the store, setting your loadout and finding matches.

Now if you have a somewhat powerful or good system, you can make the game look better. Doing that is also very simple. On the top bar of the emulator, you’ll find a button with three lines. Click on that, and then click on Setting. Once this opens, let’s go into the Game Tab.

As you can see, the settings for all the games you have installed on this shows up here. Scroll down to Call of Duty and pick either HD or 2K depending on your PC. The higher the resolution, the better the system you’ll need. Next, change Display Quality to HD and press save.

This will make the game almost like a PC game because it will clean up all the jagged edges and such. The game will be much more pleasing to the eyes and if you do decide to record it or stream, it will be a good experience for the viewers as well. Plus, you don’t really have to worry too much about about draining a battery on a laptop or PC.

Next, if you want to livestream the game then download and install OBS Studio on your system. From here you can record gameplay as well.

Keep in mind that when playing on an emulator you will usually get matched with other emulator players but since Call of Duty Mobile is still somewhat new, you might also get matched with mobile players.

COD Modern Warfare – AK-47 Best Attachments and Loadout Guide

The AK47 is an extremely powerful rifle in Modern Warfare that unlocks pretty late. So let’s check out one of the best balanced loadouts for this gun.

The AK47 is one of the most highly recommended weapons to use in this game. It’s got a lot of power and with a bit of good aim, can drop enemies to the floor in an instant. The only sad part is that you need to play and level up to level 53 to unlock. You can use a loadout of the gun as part of the demolition class though to get a feel of the gun before you unlock it.

Enough about the gun though, let’s take a look at the best attachments to get a balanced AK 47 that’s great for objective based gameplay as well as a bit of aggressiveness.

Starting off with the Muzzle: Use the Muzzle Break

For the Barrel: Use Spetsnaz Elite

For the Stock: use the Skeleton Stock

For the Underbarrel: use the Tactical Foregrip

And finally for the Rear Grip: use the Rubberized Grip Tape

This attachment setup is all about versatility but excels at Objective Game modes. The attachments improve accuracy, range, mobility and control without harming the other stats much. This results in a gun that is a lot of fun to use.

Now that you’re done with the attachments, you’ll want a secondary weapon to go with this deadly AK47. So for the secondary I recommend the JOKR Launcher which will help you take out enemy kill streaks. 

Next up is Perks. Here’s you’ll want to use EOD for Perk 1. This perk will increase your resistance to non-killstreak explosives. So you’ll be able to stay alive for longer and eat more grenades before dying.

The next perk you’ll want to use is Ghost for Perk 2. This will hide you from digital surveillance meaning you wont show up on the radar. It also Hides your death markers. Which is great. If you’re more into utilizing Killstreaks, you can use Hardline.

For your last perk you’ll want Shrapnel which gives you an additional piece of lethal equipment. This increases your firepower and ability to clear out groups of enemies and objective points.

This perks helps you become very lethal but also helps hide you from enemies allowing you to flank them. 

For lethal equipment, you can use a frag grenade or Semtex. I personally use semtex because it can stick to surfaces which can help set up traps or to clear out areas. Plus, hearing the beeps before you get notified of your kills is very satisfying. 

For non-lethal i suggest using the Stun Grenade even though you can also use a Flashbang. Stun Grenades will heavily hinder the enemy’s ability to react making them sitting ducks. Works great when they’re grouped up.

Onwards we go to killstreaks.This heavily comes down to your playstyle. The first one you should get is the Personal Radar. This will help you get eyes on the enemy and will help you be prepared for what’s around the map.

The next one you should get is Counter UAV. When used with the Ghost perk, this will really help disorient enemies and disrupt their UAVs giving you the advantage.

And finally, you should get Cruise Missile. Time it well and you can clean up a majority of their team in one good hit.

Besides these you can also swap one of them for a VTOL which helps mop up the battlefield.

And finally for the field upgrade, you can Stopping Power if you want to deal out more damage or Trophy System to help keep you alive.

Stopping Power is great if you’ve got those low requirement kill streaks allowing you to shred enemies since it increases the damage dealt by your bullets.

While Trophy System is good if you’ve got something like the VTOL or White Phosphorus equipped which means you’ll want to stay alive longer. Trophy System does this by helping destroy lethal and tactical equipment so you’ll be temporarily safe from those. 

That’s about it. You now have a strong, versatile AK47 loadout that will help you crush enemies with ease. As always, you can change certain things up a bit to make them more tuned towards your playstyle.

Guide – How To Stream PUBG Mobile/COD Mobile From Your Phone (No PC or Laptop Required)

Let’s say you bought a new gaming phone to play PUBG mobile, and now you want to get into streaming. But sadly, you don’t have a capture card or a PC to be able to do that. Worry not, because we’re right here to tell you that you can stream by using just your smartphone. And we’ll tell you exactly how you can do that.

Now, most phones can handle gaming these days, but streaming is an additional, intensive task so you will need a phone with a good processor and memory. We recommend a phone with at least 4GB RAM or more, as any phone with lower memory may not be able to handle streaming while playing at the same time. For our purpose, we’ll be using the Nubia Red Magic 3, which has a Snapdragon 855 processor and 8 GB RAM, making it perfect for gaming and streaming. 

  • The first thing that you’ll need to do is download an app that lets you stream to Facebook or YouTube. There are a few options, but we’ll be using Omlet Arcade for our use case. So, step 1, head over to the Google Play Store and download the app. 
  • Once you have the app, the next step is to sign into it, or create a new account on Omlet Arcade if you don’t have one already. Then you get to the main screen. It will ask you for a bunch of permissions, for overlay, access to microphone and camera, so click on ok to proceed. 
  • On the bottom panel, you’ll see a bunch of icons, that let you stay updated with different things. To start the livestream, tap on the plus icon in the middle. You’ll see 4 icons pop up. Tap on the Go live icon. 
  • The app will then ask you to choose the game you want to stream. Choose, the game, which in our case will be PUBG Mobile, because why not?

The app will then ask you the platform to which you’d like to stream. You can stream to Omlet arcade itself, or if you want to stream to Facebook, YouTube or Twitch, you’ll have to connect the account, and authorize access from there. Tap on next, and you’ll be taken to the settings screen, where you can setup your live output, including the stream quality and overlay notifications. The settings icon on the top right gives you access to more options. Here you can enable or disable the camera and microphone, put in some preset background music, set up a delay or enable low latency. After that, just hit start and you should be live. 

You’ll see a bubble with the omlet arcade icon, which you can tap to access the settings once the stream is actually live. Once you’re done, just tap on the stop icon on the left and you can then check out your stream on YouTube. And that’s how you get started with streaming on a mobile phone, without any need for external hardware.

PUBG Mobile Drop Zone Guide For Sanhok and Vikendi – Best Drop and Loot Points For Beginners

In the previous guide, we told you about the best drop points for finding loot and surviving the early game on Erangel and Miramar. In this one, we’re going to tell you about some of the best drop zones for beginners on Vikendi and Sanhok.

But before that, a few general tips applicable for every game:

  • The first thing you need to do is check your flight path in the map so you can choose a drop zone accordingly, and time when you need to jump off of the plane.
  • When you’re in the plane, keep in mind the points where players are jumping out. You can use that to your advantage as you’ll be able to judge where you’ll find more people on the map.
  • On your way down, as you approach the landing, be mindful of your surroundings and keep an eye on how many players are around you. Then you can decide whether it’s beneficial to take an early fight or hide and pick up some loot first.

Now that we’ve got the fundamentals covered, let’s take a look at some good drop zones in Sanhok and Vikendi, starting off with Sanhok.



Starting off with Sanhok, our first location is the Docks. This is a pretty big area where you can find medium to high-level loot for you and your squad.

One thing to keep in mind is that this area is located at one corner of the map, so if the airplane path lies directly over it, there are higher chances of running into other players here. And since it’s located in a corner, should you choose to go here, try finding a vehicle early on, lest you fall prey to the blue circle.

Camp Sites

Sanhok has three camp sites: Alpha, Bravo and Charlie. Usually you can find this area to be crowded if it lies directly in your flight path. Hence, we recommend choosing the camp site that’s a bit farther away from the path, because here you can definitely find some good loot.

Ha Tinh

Ha Tinh is also located in one corner, so you won’t be able to land here in every game, but according to the flight path you’ll be able to decide properly as this is a good drop zone.

This place is pretty empty usually and it’s easy to find some high-grade loot without doing a lot of legwork. And, finding a vehicle is easy too, so you don’t have to worry about getting stuck, even if you’re far away from the circle.

And with that, we’re done with Sanhok. Let’s head to the snowy region of Vikendi and see what are some good drop locations.



Our drop zone for Vikendi is Movatra. Here, you can find some high-quality loot, and the good thing is that it’s pretty close to dino park. So, when people are hot dropping at Dino Park and busy fighting amongst themselves, you can stick around in Movatra, loot the area in peace, gear up and pick people off from a safe distance.


The Cosmodrome is a pretty big area and there are high chances of finding a crowd here if your airplane is following a path directly over it. But the positive thing is that this place is known for high-quality loot and it’s big enough for your entire squad to find something powerful for each member.

Dobro Mesto

Our last drop zone on Vikendi is Dobro Mesto. This is located right along the Vikendi coastline, and is a really huge area where you can spend some time and easily gather weapons and equipment for your squad. You entire squad can gear up with some high-level equipment and head into battle towards the centre, as getting to the circle isn’t hard either.

So, those were our suggestions for some of the best locations to find loot in Sanhok and Vikendi. For our drop zone and loot location guide for Erangel and Miramar, click here.

PUBG Mobile Drop Zone Guide for Erangel and Miramar – Best Drop and Loot Points For Beginners

The main objective in PUBG Mobile is simple, fight, survive and get to the end. But in order to make it to the end, you need to make sure you pick a good drop off point in the beginning, where you have higher chances of surviving the early game and get your hands on some decent loot too.

In this guide, we’re going to tell you about some of the best drop zones in Erangel and Miramar, along with a few pointers on places to avoid for beginners. But before that, a few general tips applicable for every game:

  • The first thing you need to do is check your flight path in the map so you can choose a drop zone accordingly, and time when you need to jump off of the plane.
  • When you’re in the plane, keep in mind the points where players are jumping out. You can use that to your advantage as you’ll be able to judge where you’ll find more people on the map.
  • On your way down, as you approach the landing, be mindful of your surroundings and keep an eye on how many players are around you. Then you can decide whether it’s beneficial to take an early fight or hide and pick up some loot first.

Now let’s take a look at some of the drop zones for Erangel and Miramar



The first major drop spot in Erangel is Novorepnoye, or Novo as it’s known amongst players. This is a pretty big zone and you’ll find a lot of decent loot here. But, there are also chances of running into other players, so you need to weigh the pros and cons.

But even if you do run into enemies, Novo has plenty of places where you can take cover in case someone starts firing at you. This place has a higher chance of finding military grade equipment, so be on the lookout for that.

One thing that you do need to remember is that Novo is a bit isolated as a region, so you’ll have to keep an eye on the timer and the circle to make sure you don’t get stuck outside. On the plus side, you can easily find vehicles here, so getting from one place to another shouldn’t be a huge problem.


The next location on our list is the Mylta Powerplant. This is a good place for people who are starting out as this also has military grade equipment and isn’t known for being a crowded place, so you can take a breath and look for loot in peace.

If you pick Mylta as a drop point, try landing at the green control room as that place has the best loot in the region. But if you’re unable to do so, or your teammates are separated, you can make your way to the factory as that has some good loot as well. Just like Novo, you can easily find vehicles here, which means escaping this place in case a fight breaks out or making your way to the circle is a lot easier.


The Mansion is another good location that has a couple of spots to find great loot. One is the mansion itself, and the other is the garage close to it. Both these spots are known for pretty good items, and you can vehicles close by too. And the biggest advantage of this location is that it’s very close to the shelter and the prison, so you can easily make your way there for more loot.

Two of the most common and popular spots in Erangel are Pochinki and Georgopol, but we suggest you to avoid those if you’re a beginner, as they’re known for being packed with players. You can always head there for early fights if you like, but only do that if you’re sure you’ll be able to survive.


El Pozo

Our first pick in Miramar is El Pozo, it has a lot of buildings which have nice loot. But there’s one building in particular that you should keep in mind, the refrigeration arena which is located right opposite to the area and bowl.

Inside this building you can easily find some powerful military-grade equipment. Plus, this area is usually pretty empty so you don’t even need to worry about getting into a fight and you can loot the place in peace. It’s pretty conveniently located too, so getting inside the circle shouldn’t be a problem either.

Campo Militar

Campo Militar is another great location where you can find a lot of loot. And, not a lot of people land here, so you have a higher chance of survival during the early parts as you look for weapons and equipment.

The only major problem with this location is that you always need to be on the lookout for the circle as it’s a bit out of the way and you can easily fall victim to the blue zone if you’re not careful. And vehicles aren’t very common either, so you’ll have to keep your eyes peeled if you want to make it out in time.

Minas Generales

The final location on Miramar is Minas Generales. You won’t always find military-grade loot here, but it’s a great location for squads because it still has some really high-quality loot.

The great thing about Minas Generales is that it’s close to Hacienda and Pecado, so you can easily pick off people coming from there and grab some military-grade equipment off of them.

So, these were our picks for the best drop locations for beginners on Erangel and Miramar. Stay tuned for more, as we’ll be putting out another drop zone guide, for Vikendi and Sanhok.

PUBG Mobile Squad Tips and Tricks

There’s a huge difference between playing PUBG in solo and playing in a squad – in one mode you only have to worry about yourself, and in the other you need to coordinate and communicate with your team in order to make it till the end.

So, today we’ll be giving you some tips and tricks using which you can ensure your squad becomes unbeatable, and get that chicken dinner every time.

Landing – Stay Together

The first rule of playing squads is, always land together. A lot of beginners make this mistake, they end up going separately from their squad and immediately end up getting killed by an enemy team. Make sure you don’t make the same mistake and plan out with your team in advance where you want to land.

The moment you land, start looking for a good weapon. And always be on the lookout for more, not just for yourself but for your team, giving them any extra weapons you might find. This will make sure you’re ready for the fight right from the beginning.

Keep an eye on how many people are landing close to your decided spot, and keep alerting your teammates of their potential whereabouts so they’re always aware and ready.

Looting and Weapons

When looting for weapons in the beginning, try to spread out so you can cover more ground. Instead of everyone going together into one building, each team mate can go into a different one to maximize potential loot. But don’t venture away too far, and keep communicating your position to your team so they can help you out in case you need it.

Another thing you should keep in mind while looting items; always be mindful of your team’s equipment and choose accordingly. This way, you can help your teammates with attachments and they can do the same. For instance, if you pick up a sniper rifle, your squad can give you a good scope if they find one, and you can help them find items for their build. It’s always important to coordinate with your team and keep sharing items amongst yourselves.

Fighting the Enemy

The moment you see an enemy, alert all your teammates. A lot of times, someone will start firing by themselves because they want to get a kill, but end up getting their own squad killed instead. So don’t be greedy, and remember you’re part of a team.

Don’t walk alone into a fight, and always cover your teammates. Getting kills is faster when more people shoot an enemy and put some pressure on the opposing team as well.

Additionally, when entering combat, be mindful of your enemies’ positions, coordinate with your team and try to flank them. This will help you dominate the battlefield easily.

Remember that there’s strength in numbers, so make sure someone is always ready and willing to revive a fallen teammate, and the others cover them to make sure the enemies don’t take you by surprise. You can also try to draw enemy fire towards you while your teammate is being revived to give them better odds of survival.

Try to make sure your whole squad makes it to the final circle, it’ll really boost your chances of winning that chicken dinner. Always remember you’re playing in a team, and your squad will be an unstoppable juggernaut.

PUBG Mobile Sniper Guide – Kar98, M24 and AWM

Everyone wants to use sniper rifles in PUBG Mobile, but not everyone can because it can be a little tricky to figure out how to go about it. Hopefully, this guide will tell you all you need to know about the best snipers and their attachments.


Let’s start with the Kar98. Not only is this the most common sniper rifle in the game, it also has the highest damage. It’s base damage it 79, and if you’re able to get a headshot, you can get a one-shot kill even on a level 2 helmet.

Sight and Muzzle – In the way of attachments, it only supports a sight, muzzle and stock. For the sight, our best option is either the 6x or the 8x, and for the muzzle, we recommend going with the suppressor, so you can take the sneaky approach without being spotted by the enemy.

Stock –For the stock you have two options, either a cheekpad or bullet loops. The choice depends on how your personal preference. If you’re using an 8x scope and taking long-range shots, then the cheekpad is the way to go. Otherwise go with the bullet loops as they reduce the reload time and you can take more shots, giving you a greater chance to get a kill even if you miss some shots.

As the Kar98 is a very common weapon, it’s pretty useful to know how to use it effectively.


The M24 is a little less hard-hitting than the Kar98, with its base damage being 75. So if you’re looking for a pure damage weapon, the Kar98 is a better choice. It supports more attachments than the Kar98, namely a sight, muzzle, magazine and stock.

Sight and Muzzle – Again, for the sight, we recommend going with a 6x or an 8x scope, along with a suppressor on the muzzle.

Magazine – For the magazine, you can choose between the Extended Mag or the Quickdraw Mag. We suggest the Extended Mag as it will let you take more shots before you need to reload, which means you can put some pressure on your enemies and have a higher chance of getting a kill.

Stock –For the stock you only have a cheekpad here, so use that and you’ll be able to have a steadier aim.


Finally, we have the deadliest sniper in PUBG Mobile, the AWM. In the right hands, it can wreak havoc on your enemies. It has the highest base damage of 105 and can easily take down an enemy with a Level 3 Helmet in a single headshot. But it’s pretty rare too, as it’s only available through the air drops.

Another issue is that the AWM uses Magnum rounds instead of regular 7.62mm ones, which are again, only found in air drops. For the attachments it has the same options as the M24: sight, muzzle, magazine and stock.

Sight and Muzzle – Like in previous two cases, the best option for the sight is a 6x or an 8x scope, and for the muzzle you can’t go wrong with the suppressor.

Magazine – For the magazine, the best choice is the Quickdraw Extended Mag as it gives you the benefits of both, but if you can’t find it, the Extended Mag is your best bet, because there’s a higher chance of killing as you can fire more rounds before you have to reload.

Stock – For the stock you only have the cheekpad, so we’ll go with that.

Using the Sniper Rifle

Now that you know which sniper rifles are there in the game, let’s talk about how to use them.

As you’re taking long-range shots with the sniper, you need to remember that there will be bullet drop (the bullet will drop in height the farther it goes) and sniper rounds are slower. With those two things in mind, you’ll need to adjust your aim accordingly. If you hold your aim, you’ll be able to tell the bullet’s path and have a good idea of the amount of bullet drop.

Another thing, the best way to use a sniper is by crouching or going prone. This makes your aim more stable and in turn, it becomes easier to line up a shot.

One more thing, during the last stage of the round, it’s better to switch to a 6x if you started out with an 8x. Mainly because the zone will be smaller and you don’t need such a long-range, and if the enemies are closer, you can keep it at 3x. Similarly, if you have an 8x scope, you can keep it at 4x for closer ranged fights.

Now you should have enough information about how to go on using sniper rifles in PUBG Mobile. Keep checking back for more guides and tips!
