PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, the PC and Xbox One game that made the battle royale genre popular are now available on Android and iOS devices. For a game as complicated as this one, it’s surprising that your phone can handle it so well.
But because the platform is different, the gameplay is also different. We’ve made a list of things you need to know about PUBG on mobile so you can keep eating that chicken dinner.
1. Customise your controls
By default, you move with a virtual control stick on the left side of the screen, and you aim with your right thumb. You use the buttons on the right side of the screen to shoot, aim down sights, crouch, go prone, and open your backpack.
But you can change how the virtual buttons are arranged by dragging them and changing their size and transparency. You can even save multiple layouts presets. Find the button layout that you feel most comfortable with so you can play your best.
2. Use your map to find your way
In the mobile version, you can’t just put markers on the map. Instead, you have a dotted line that goes straight to your marker from where you are and shows how far away you are. By watching your marker line while you’re still on the plane, you’ll know when to jump to get where you want to go.
During regular play, you should also pay close attention to the minimap in the top right corner of the screen. It can show you where gunfire is coming from and where vehicles are coming from. With this, you’ll always know when danger is coming, which will keep you safe while you hunt down your enemies.
3. Keep moving, keep alert
When you move your character around while holding down your left thumb, a running icon will appear. Slide your thumb over the icon that looks like a person running, and your character will stay in sprint mode without you having to keep holding down the button.
When auto sprinting is turned on, you can grab and hold the camera/eye icon below your map and drag it around to look around freely without changing the direction you’re running in. This is a good tip to help you keep an eye out for other players and make it hard for them to hit you.
4. It’s easier to steal things
In the mobile version of the game, weapons and items are picked up for you by default. When you find gun attachments that work with your guns, it adds them to your weapons cache for you.
It’s a very useful feature that saves you a lot of trouble, especially early in the game when you’re scrambling to find supplies.
But keep moving as you pick up things or deal with your backpack because staying still can get you shot.
5. Feedback on where to go
Sound is very important in PUBG, whether you play on a PC or a phone. In PUBG, the sound comes from the direction your camera is pointing. If you only hear footsteps in your left headphone, you know that an enemy is close by on your left.
Don’t worry if you don’t have headphones with you. You don’t just have to rely on sounds in PUBG Mobile; you can also see what’s going on. If you’ve been hit by a bullet, a hit-marker in the middle of your screen shows you where the bullet came from.
6. Use both hands to fire
When you’re in combat, you’ll see that you have a button (a bullet in a circle) on both the right and left sides of the screen to fire your weapon. They both do the same thing, so it really doesn’t matter which side you choose.
Even so, you’ll probably use both, and you should, because it can get pretty crazy. With two buttons, it’s also easier to shoot with one hand while using the other to aim.
There are a fair number of bots in rajkotupdates.news games: garena free fire & PUBG India. Even though this might ruin your enjoyment of a battle royale game, it’s a good way for new players to try out their weapons and learn how to play. Just don’t brag too much about your wins if they came from beating bots.
