PUBG Mobile Tips To Improve Your Game Sense

PUBG Mobile’s popularity keeps on rising and with so many players competing against each other, you will need every advantage you can get. So, here’s 3 tips to help you improve your game sense and get an edge over your opponents.

Stay in Cover as much as you can

  • Now, this seems like an obvious one but people tend to forget this. If you’re new, you’ll most probably be playing in Bronze where most of your enemies are AI so you will get pretty confident as you rake up the wins and kills but it will also spoil your game sense a bit as you start to face off against better human players.
  • Always try to be near cover, especially when engaging an enemy as this will give you some breathing room and a place to retreat to in case you are surprised by their presence. If there’s nothing nearby, trees and bushes are your friends, otherwise, try to stick with a bigger and better cover like buildings.

Improve your Crosshair Placement

  • This is a tough one to coach but your crosshair should always be in a position where you think the enemy’s head will be. Adjust this for different angles that you may encounter in the varied terrain of the maps.
  • If you’re peeking a corner, aim at the edge of the wall so that when you start to peek it with a wide peek running peek, you won’t have to move your crosshair much and will have an advantage. Anticipate where the head will be of the enemy and keep your crosshair there, with practice this alone can improve your skills tremendously.

Don’t be afraid to Camp

  • A lot of people get triggered if you camp(stay in one sport waiting for enemies) but you gotta do whatever you can to survive. This is super important if you’re playing alone and can only watch a single angle.
  • Don’t stick to a spot though for too long because if you’re outside the circle then you might have to rush which will leave you vulnerable. When you’re in a good part of the circle, have good loot, that’s when you should play the waiting game and just wait for the numbers to dwindle down and take out unsuspecting foes. Getting kills is cool but winning is cooler so prioritize the latter, always.

That’s just 3 tips related to improving your overall game sense and help you get an edge over other people. Stay tuned for more tips and tricks to help you get better at games and if you’d like more PUBG Mobile tips, check out the links below.

4 Hidden Tricks in PUBG Mobile That You Might Not Know

We have posted quite a few PUBG Tips but here are a few tricks that you may not know about that could be useful if you’re ever in trouble and need some way to get an advantage. So without further ado, here are four hidden tricks in PUBG Mobile you might not know about that can be helpful.

1. Car Bug

The car bug is when you jump onto the side of a car but not on top of it. You jump right onto the edge so it looks like you’re floating and then you go prone and you’re basically completely hidden while also being in a usual spot from which you can aim and get people.

2. Crawling Underwater

If you are near a body of water and think someone might be over and don’t have any cover, you could use this trick. Go prone outside the body of water and select any throwable object. Then start aiming to throw it but don’t actually throw it. Just hold it and start crawling towards the water until you’re completely submerged and not visible. You won’t have to worry about oxygen and can catch an enemy by surprise.

3. Red Zone Camp

This is a risky thing to do but can help you switch your tactics. You take damage if you’re in the red zone, however, if even a single small pixel of your character’s body is touching the blue circle, you won’t take damage. You can use this and always stay at the edge until the very end. Remember, camping is a viable strategy in this game.

4. Stairway Spot

If you’re inside a house and want to ambush people use this. If there’s a staircase, you can jump onto the ledge on the wall of the staircase and position yourself above the staircase, a spot where nobody tends to check, especially in FPP. You will literally have the drop on them once they start climbing the staircase as they won’t spot you and you can kill them. You will be in a vulnerable spot though so if there is more than one person and you shoot too soon, you could be in trouble so do this when there’s back up around.

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.

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.

PUBG PC Season 6 Update Adds New Map ‘Karakin’

Season 6 is upon us and it brings with it a brand new island to the Battlegrounds. Karakin has risen like its namesake from the sea to bring intense action and quick gameplay to PUBG. New dangers, new weapons and a whole new island await, so let’s drop into the action of Update 6.1.

NEW MAP: KARAKIN

Higher tension, faster pace: Welcome to Karakin.

Karakin is a 2×2 km island off the coast of Northern Africa. It’s an arid, rocky environment that provides wide-open terrain and challenging engagements. It’s small, fast, and dangerous: Expect the tension of Miramar combined with the pace of Sanhok. Karakin is a 64 players map.

Players should expect long distance rifle engagements in the mountains, tactical urban conflict, and claustrophobic underground combat. And with the introduction of the Black Zone, Karakin reveals its twist: a map that’s layout changes every match.

Our new hazard, the Black Zone only available in Karakin, levels buildings into smoking ruins.

  • The Black Zone is designed to push players out of the safety of a building.
  • The hazard is random: towns and compounds can be undamaged, totally flattened, and everything in between.
  • The mix of buildings and ruins evolves in real time throughout the match: Meaning don’t always expect that building you run to for cover to be there late in the match.
  • Remember, if you hear the siren, and you are inside that purple circle on the minimap- evacuate!

New Throwable: Sticky Bomb (Karakin Only)

To change up siege play, we’re introducing Breach Points which can be destroyed with Sticky Bombs in Karakin.

  • Certain walls and floors have breach points which can be destroyed with Sticky Bombs
  • This feature presents more tools for our players: For campers, it allows more sight lines/windows to be created
  • For squads going on the offensive however, there are new options for storming buildings- “Do we blast in through the back of the building, or through the roof- maybe both?” the choice is yours!
  • And for explorers, we’ve hidden many secret areas for those players with a spare Sticky Bomb or two, and a keen nose for loot

Finally, to make interior gun fights a little more interesting, we’ve added bullet penetration to our weakest walls in Karakin. Getting brief glimpses of your enemies through damaged drywall, and deciding to take the fight or regroup- gives players more options.

At PUBG we are dedicated to providing new experiences for you, the player, and pushing what’s possible in our genre. We can’t wait for you to experience it for yourself!

Karakin Loot Increase – 23rd January

We heard your feedback during the testing phase and initial launch of Karakin and have now implemented a hotfix to increase and rebalance loot on our newest Battleground.

To ensure you can drop in and loot up quickly above around, we’ve rebalanced loot spawns to improve your overall experience. There’ll now be much more loot to go around for you and your squad.

We understand and agree that feeling a need to rush and breach a tunnel each match to get that sweet, sweet loot just didn’t feel great. So, we’ve increased above-ground spawn rate of healing and boost items, as well as scopes to get you battle ready quicker. We hope this will allow you to explore Karakin more freely without feeling required to breach a tunnel just to find enough of that sweet, sweet loot to survive.

Please keep the feedback coming, it’s appreciated as always and we look forward to continually improving Karakin alongside our passionate community.


Detailed changes

  • Increased 2x, 3x, 4x scopes
  • Increased healing/boost items above ground
  • Modified ratio of total SR/DMR muzzle attachments due to increased spawn rate of those weapons
  • Decreased number of melee weapons, canted sights and magazine attachments
  • Removed Sawed-off from Karakin

New Vehicle: Motor Glider

  • Motor Glider’s fuel consumption rate is tied to the engine speed – the more throttle you apply, the faster you will run out of gas
  • Motor Glider will be spawned without gas. Fuel up before starting the engine.
  • There’s no maximum altitude you can reach, the sky is the limit! But engine will start losing power the higher the altitude you are at
  • Controls:
    • Use W/S keys to control the pitch and A/D to control the roll of the aircraft

    • Hold Spacebar when on the ground to engage handbrake

PUBG Season 10 Coming On Nov 9, Will add New Character Called Sara

Season 10 of PUBG Mobile is on its way, and it aims to bring a lot more to the table than the current one. In addition to new items, missions and a new theme, it will also introduce a new character, named Sara.

According to the leaks, Sara will have a vehicle reinforcement skill which will let her reduce any damage taken by a vehicle she’s riding in. The leak was first shared by YouTube channel Mr. Ghost Gaming. It also reveals that Sara will have a host of costumes, emotes and dialogues which players can unlock by completing in-game missions. She’s the second character to be added to the game, after Victor, who was added to the game back in August, in the 0.14.0 update.

Here’s what Sara’s in-game description says,”Sara is a vehicle expert who loves automobiles and going for rides. She excels at reinforcing vehicles so that they take less damage when she drives or is riding in a vehicle.” It sure sounds the ability will come in quite handy when you’re trying to drive away from or into heavy gunfire. Be sure to check her out when the Season 10 update hits on November 10.

PUBG Adds Cross-Play Support to Consoles

PUBG’s Season 4 is already out on PC but it hasn’t hit the consoles yet. However, at Gamescom the PUBG Corp had another exciting announcement for console PUBG players.


PUBG is getting cross-platform play for consoles players. This means that Xbox players will be able to play against or with PlayStation players and vice-versa. This is something that Fortnite already does and has been doing for a while now and it is good to see PUBG catch up.

Sadly, there’s still no word about cross-play between Consoles and PC but maybe that will come after they enable console cross-play. Cross-play will go live on the test servers in late September with a public release in early October.

Season 4 for PUBG on consoles drops on August 27th which will bring with it the updated Erangel map among other things.
