PUBG Mobile Win Tips

Did you know that PUBG mobile has over 3M players now? It's officially the most popular mobile game on the market. Why has it surpassed Fortnite mobile you might ask? Because Fortnite Mobile is a pain in the arse to install, and even more so, to control while trying to build and fight at the same time. So that brings us back with these PUBG Mobile Win Tips.

PUBG Mobile Win Tips

In this guide, we'll share our PUBG Mobile Win Tips, which will teach the basics of starting out, to surviving the first collapse of the circle of doom, eliminating your rivals, and finally how to win that chicken dinner everyone covets.

Do you know where the term "Winner winner, chicken dinner" comes from? It's actually a casino term, whereas a certain casino used to offer (think in the 1980's), a 99 cent chicken dinner. So you bet $1 on blackjack, win the bet, and well it's dinner time. Rumor has it, the term started at the Riverside casino in Laughlin, NV... or it could have been so many others, they all want that claim to fame with PUBG making it so popular. I first heard it in 1996.

So, lets start out with our PUBG Mobile Win Tips.

Starting Out

The typical PUBG Mobile game mode is a free-for-all where 100 naked and hopeless contenders are dropped upon an island littered with gear and weapons to gleefully slaughter each other until there's just one left standing. To put the pressure on, the game area shrinks periodically, automatically disposing of players left outside the play zone. Yes, just like in the movie.

It's not easy getting to grips with a new game and trying to survive when everyone's out to get you, but keep these tips in mind to help you get a good start and get an edge on your rivals.

Dropping In

In PUBG Mobile, your first strategic moves start before you pick up a gun or even hit the ground. First, you have to choose a good place to drop.

There are two factors at play in this decision: 

  1. Buildings contain loot.
  2. Everyone else also wants loot and is trying to kill you.

Quite a dilemma. You'll want to aim to land next to buildings to grab the loot, but avoid the most popular ones that might be swarming with enemies.

Maybe some hotshots will want to dive straight into the crowd, pick up the first weapon and just start gunning the slowpokes, but that's not you reading this guide yet, rookie. Instead, get a good start by aiming for a building that other players aren't going for.

Gearing Up

There's going to be battle, and you don't want to be the loser who brings their firsts to a gunfight. Your first priority upon landing should be to loot. Of course, you followed our first tip and have dropped next to a building away from enemies, right? Great. Now get indoors and loot up.

A weapon is always first priority. Next is body armor and healing items to keep you alive through the action.

Once you have a choice of weapons and other items, you can start thinking about which weapons work best for you as you explore the area and take down enemies. But first, just pick up everything. PUBG Mobile has a handy auto-loot to help get this done fast.

Automatic Functions

Playing action games on a touchscreen can be awkward but PUBG Mobile has a few convenient auto functions to make it easier. Don't make life hard for yourself. Make use of them.

  • Auto sprint: the icon appears when you’re running at full speed. Simply hover over it with your finger and then let go to continue running without needing to hold down.
  • Free look: A handy feature that rival Fortnite lacks, you can drag around the small eye icon just below the map  in order to look around and keep an eye on your surroundings. This works while running so you can look around you without changing your direction.
  • Auto loot: Your avatar will simply pick up essential items, like rare scopes, weapons, armor, and more without you having to do anything. The game is pretty smart about this, though when your inventory is cluttered, you might want to check that it is following your preferences.

Aggressive Players get Rewarded

Those of you used to PUBG on PC or Xbox might be used to a cautious style where you focus more on hiding, self-preservation and careful precision. That  passive-passive approach isn't going to work on mobile, kid. Controls are less precise, accuracy is more difficult. 

This means that you're less likely to get sniped by more calculating players, and often, you can get shot at a few times before your enemy lands a hit on you.

When you hear gunfire, instead of immediately panicking and running for cover, try to find the source and run towards it. With the skill levels between players somewhat flatted by touchscreen controls, the advantage skews in favor of sheer aggression. In this case, offense is the best defense.

Take your Time

That doesn't mean you throw skill out of the window. Firing wildly will waste your shots and alert others to your presence. In regular PUBG you might be afraid to stand your ground and aim. Standing still means you get your head popped off.

But on Mobile, most of those shots aren't being fired at you with any accuracy anyway, so stop and aim and make yours count. Nine times out of ten, it'll mean you'll be the one left standing.

Aiming is done with the small crosshair icon at the right of the screen, which you can drag around on the screen to aim. If both aiming and shooting with the right thumb is too awkward, you can go into the settings to enable an extra fire button on the left of the screen. Use whichever is faster for you in the moment. The suckers die just the same.

Bose Noise Canceling HeadphonesWhat was that about alerting others to your presence? In PUBG, your sense of hearing is key. Without distracting background music, you'll need to rely on your ears to pick up incoming shots and the sound of movement near you. 

A keen ear can make the difference between life and death, so don't be tempted to play PUBG Mobile on mute on the subway like other mobile games. Instead, invest in some decent headphones to give you an edge.

Setup your controls

In PUBG Mobile, a wise warrior always adjust the settings to make sure you fight on your terms. Sun Tzu said that, probably. The game has several settings in the options menu that often go unnoticed, but a bit of tweaking could score you victory.

Is your game running slowly or jankily? Consider setting the graphics settings to low and your FPS settings to high to allow the game to play more smoothly. War is ugly, but winning is beautiful.

You'll also play faster and more effectively if you tweak some options to suit your style and skill level. In the menu you can adjust sensitivity settings, change location of on-screen icons and disable or adjust the auto-loot settings here. As we mentioned, enabling the left fire button can be a real game-changer.

Remember your surroundings

One of the most frustrating things in PUBG, Mobile or otherwise, is being caught in a death zone with no fast way to the safe area. You'll want a fast option, and that often means a car. Once you know where cars are found, keep them in mind for when the walls close in. Some players even prioritize dropping near cars instead of their favorite weapons.

Friends help make you stronger

If you're getting repeatedly dropped in PUBG Mobile's free-for-all, then you might want to consider playing some squad games to hone your skills, especially if you can get friends you already know to join you. Teamwork, especially with more skilled players, is a little less intense and gives you more breathing room to get to grips with the fundamentals. Your 'friends' may regret training you up if you ever meet face-to-bullet in a free-for-all.

Use a better tablet

PUBG Mobile Win TipsIf you're running the game on your phone, or even on an older tablet, chances are its time for an upgrade. We LOVE Amazon Fire Tablets. You'll need to play with the settings to install the game on the tablet, since it's not native to Amazon's App Store. But it is entirely possible, and with such a low cost for a Samsung quality tablet, at a fraction of the cost we don't know why people aren't already switching.

How? Find an app to backup the PUBG Mobile App from your android device. Email it to yourself or transfer the file via a computer or wifi, and then after allowing 3rd party apps, install on the Fire Device. $50 for a Fire Tablet or $200 for a Samsung Galaxy tab of the same quality? Amazon.



That's all our PUBG Mobile Win Tips for right now for getting starting and dominating. We'll be adding more as we keep playing, but if you've any to share, feel free to leave them in the comments below!
