What is PUBG?

Player’s unknown battlegrounds or PUBG Gameplay is a combat strategy game that saw widespread popularity during its launch and yet after 3 years of its launch, there has been no decrement in the popularity of the game. But, how to play PUBG like a PRO?

Players from different continents have played this game and are a part of different clans. The game starts with you spawning on an island with other players and the one with better PUBG gameplay wins. There are no specific PUBG tips & tricks specifically. But, there are some PUBG gameplay tactics that can work pretty well for you.

Out of 100 players and intense gameplay of nearly 45-60 minutes, a player or team wins and gets the chicken dinner. And for you to get that chicken dinner, you need to have a rich gameplay strategy you wouldn’t regret. For better gameplay in PUBG or in PUBG mobile, LET’S GO!

How to Play PUBG?

1) 2 vs 3 vs 4 finger claw gameplay

Let me tell you that changing with how many fingers you play PUBG with, decides who gets the chicken dinner. Simply adding or removing a finger from your gameplay can help you in tight situations. More fingers do help you with more mobility and more options at the same time.

A player must experiment playing with all the styles available to see what suits best for them. There should be enough space on your mobile device when you are playing with more fingers say 4.

It generally takes a week to adjust to new gameplay style but it is definitely worth the try. A four-finger gameplay includes most of the controls at a time and two the least. Let’s see in more detail.

a) Best 2 finger setup for PUBG mobile

2 finger control

PUBG mobile 2 finger layout is the most commonly use style among players due to its easy style. we typically have a fire button on right and move the control on the right. the player can adjust other controls such as jump at lower right and peak and scope options at middle left. As it offers few options at a time, I personally would not recommend playing using this style.

  • pros
  • Easiest to use.
  • cons-
  • Few control options at a given moment
  • less flexibility

b) 3 finger claw gameplay

This gameplay is widely used after 2 finger due to its fewer complications than 4 finger claw style. the typical control setting contains move button at the bottom left, fire button at the top left and at right players can adjust other settings to jump, peak and open scope.

  • pros-
  • More flexibility than 2 finger gameplay.
  • cons-
  • Still less flexible than 4 finger claw setting.

c) 4 finger claw PUBG mobile layout.

The most complex of all but can work like magic if mastered is four finger claw control. At any given moment, the player can jump, fire, move and open a scope unlike 2 finger thumb setup in which you can only move and fire. crazy right! typically, players can directly switch to this after getting a little bit better at 3 finger claw game-play.

  • pros-
  • Most flexible.
  • 4 control option at a given moment.
  • cons-
  • Toughest to master.

I would personally recommend the 4 finger claw setup in PUBG mobile as it offers various types of controls at a given time and that could be a reason between a kill or getting kills because it boils down to how well we can manage the character in the game.

For different settings in different claw gameplay, feel free to copy these settings directly.

2) Create or join a clan

Joining an active clan in PUBG can be one of the most crucial boosts to your gameplay. Join clans and try to connect with them on audio. There are questions like how do I know if a particular clan is best for me?

The simple answer is if they help you know their strategies and have better gameplay than yours. you would also be required to try with different clans and see which one is best suited for your needs.all boils down to experimentation, patience and the ability to communicate See how your clan works and plays in tight situations and learn from their own gameplay. like they said once “Great teamwork is based on individual contribution.”

It is completely onto the player on which style makes him/her more pro from noob. You can either play safe or rush but that should coincide with your team. Team players must be 100% sure whether they are going to attack or defend in a particular situation.

Surely, this is one of the important PUBG trick/tip you need to follow.

Certain teams play safe and some play rush gameplay but the main thing is how do each member communicate with each other and their roles in a team.

3) Mastering close range combat technique

Better gameplay in close combat

To master close combat, you have the option of playing TDM warehouse in which you spawn endlessly until a team completes 40 kills or time completes. Playing TDM is the ultimate tip or Trick in PUBG to master close combat. The upside is that you can try different strategies in a single match without starting a new game as in case of the classic. You can try your own ways to recoil control, scope opening and killing enemy, killing without a scope, killing with a different scope such as 2x, 3x, 4x, 6x and 8x. The strategies are endless and you can make your own with time but when you start focusing on these only.

Another aspect is war mode which is a similar concept but sometimes you can be given a sniper game only. war mode can be also practised in solo mode and can give you a feel of classic Erangel Solo. Only the case, you have to jump from a plane and the map is quite larger than the warehouse

4) How to Control Recoil in PUBG Gameplay?

Controlling recoil

Most of the time, a player gets killed only because the bullets didn’t connect to the enemy’s body and hence the latter survives. For overcome this, you do need to control recoil. Now you can do it either by adding attachments or changing ADS or Gyroscope sensitivity.

This is a trick used in PUBG by most of the competitive players. Coming to attachments, you can equip your AR with Compensator, light grip, tact shock, thumb grip or vertical fore-grip.For better gameplay in PUBG, we have a list of attachments below –

  • Compensator – It helps with controlling vertical and horizontal recoil.
  • Tact shock – Equip this for better recoil control and avoid Weapon shake.
  • Vertical Foregrip – The gun will move less in vertical axis once equipped.
  • Light grip – It increases recoil recovery and stability.
  • Thumb Grip – It reduces Scope opening time< slightly reduces vertical recoil and increases stability to a certain extent.
  • Angled Foregrip – Scope opens faster when equipped.

The Ultimate PUBG trick and suggestion for AKM AND M416?

For M416, Attach items such as compensator, light Grip, Extended mag and a tact shock to maximise recoil control and stabilise the gun.
For AKM, it is best controlled with Compensator that controls it’s vertical and horizontal recoil mostly. Also, keep in mind to stop firing if the gun goes out of control and start again.
One thing to keep in mind is that different gun works well for particular attachment only. Every player has own preferences for settings of sensitivity control and what works best with an individual.

PRO PUBG TIP – All guns were made different

5) Use headphones – Ultimate PUBG trick no one talks about

Ever thought that enemy was coming from the left but killed you from right instead or a car came from the back and knocked you out of the game. If you suffered from this problem my friend, it’s certainly because you do not use a headphone to aid your gameplay. Using headphones is a ultimate PUBG or PUBG Mobile trick to have a step ahead than you opponent.

For most parts, game is dependent upon sounds such as gun-fire(close or far), type of sound(sniper/AR/SMGs), enemy footsteps, cars or is it just your friend’s footsteps you’ve heard. The sound is an asset that will help you get a good judgement of the overall situation. Even slightest misjudgement of sound can kill you in close combat areas like “Georgopool” or the worse “The Pochinki”.

6) Decoding Pro players PUBG Gameplay

My personal strategy is to watch how did players with better gameplay plan out stuff in PUBG. I watch online streams a lot and of different players on how they play and with how many fingers.

I really recommend you to watch at least the PUBG live stream of top PUBG players on youtube. There is a lot we learn when we learn from other’s mistakes and avoid such in our gameplay.

For example – Two PUBG tricks I learnt were about peeking and shoot option and taking cover behind the ridges. These two tricks of a competitive player bought a major improvement in my game.

Watch PUBG live where different competitive players from different countries play in custom rooms with a Perfect Team Strategy. You can easily check what players do while taking a fight. Honestly, there is a lot to learn that is beyond the scope of this article.

Quick Tip – You can easily enable peek option in the basic settings tab.

7) X factor – PUBG Gameplay trick no one Knows!
