18 Apr 2019: #GamingBytes: Five PUBG Mobile tips to win 'chicken dinner'
PUBG remains one of the most popular Battle Royale games on mobile devices.
The streamlined game gives players a better experience and adds several features, that set it apart from the main game.
With an increasing number of players flocking to PUBG Mobile, the Battle Royale is bound to get intense.
We bring you five tips to win the chicken dinner on PUBG Mobile.
Button layout : Quick fingers, quick action, better chances of survival
One of the biggest problems, mobile games pose is the compact screen.
All buttons are closely packed, unlike a console or PC where fingers have more space to execute actions.
By default, movements are controlled by the left button, while accessing backpacks, firing is controlled by buttons to the right.
Players should customize button layouts before playing, based on maximum finger comfort and efficiency.
Sprinting : The safety of continuous movement
Once gamers hold down on the left thumb during player movement, a running icon appears. On sliding the thumb over this icon, the player is locked in a continuous unlimited sprinting mode.
This makes traversing the map quick and easy.
A pro tip is to play in third-person and move the camera around in all directions to check for enemies while continuing to sprint.
Map pointer : The secret map to this and every other matter
One of the best parts about the PUBG Mobile map is the dotted line that shows the direction and distance to map markers.
Not only does this make finding the way to the marked locations much easier, but it also gives players a massive advantage.
They can jump off the battle plane gauging the distance from the marked location, thus ensuring more precise landings.
Shooting mechanics : Why shoot with one hand instead of two?
Players will notice at the time of firing on PUBG mobile, that the shooting option, a bullet within a circle, appears on both sides of the screen.
Ideally, players can use either to shoot. However, since encounters are tight and frantic in battles, we suggest using both the buttons.
Use one of the buttons to aim and the other to fire at enemies.
Quick healing : No time to wallow in the mire
The main game offers hot-keys for healing, whereas, the mobile version introduces a quick-access button on the screen.
It is located in the lower left side next to the weapon icon. The added benefit is the button displaying which item is best used in scenarios.
For example, if players are really low on health and possess a Med Kit, the button will recommend that.
