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.

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.

■ Story

There exists a world woven together by four races: Mitra, Yama, Qsiti, and Sovani.

In this world, mysterious objects called “Remnants” have existed since ancient times. Who created these objects? When? And for what reason? No one knew nor had the means to know, but continued to extract and use their colossal power.

However, the Remnants’ immense power gradually caused the world to fall out of balance. As further separation tore apart those who rule and those who follow, a war broke out―the beginning of a long and endless strife.

A thousand years later, this story begins.

■ Distinct Battle System

A command-style battle with ever-changing scenarios

Coming in contact with enemies on the field will trigger battles. Strategize and make full use of the commands that change constantly depending on the positions and state of friendly and enemy forces.

Morale of friendly forces greatly affects the outcome of battle
