One of the most popular games in the world is Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, also known as PUBG. It’s an online multiplayer game with last man standing (LMS) gameplay. It was originally released on PC with both solo and team modes. Now, the game has been ported to mobile with touch controls and new changes.
This guide will help new players learn what they need to know to be successful in this game. From understanding how to play the game overall to learning about the different aspects of PUBG Mobile, there are plenty of tips that can be helpful for any player regardless of their skill level.
How to play the game
PUBG is a last-man-standing game. 100 players drop into a map and battle each other until only one player or team is left alive. The map is constantly shrinking, forcing everyone to fight.
The gameplay of PUBG Mobile shares a lot of similarities with the PC version. Players can search for weapons and armor, throw grenades to help with battles, use vehicles to their advantage, heal themselves by bandaging up wounds, and try to find the best loot in the map so they can come out on top.
There are a few changes from the PC version of PUBG though. In-game chat is disabled so you cannot communicate with other players in any way. There’s also no voice chat or ping system which makes it difficult for players who need help locating others in the map.
What do you need to win?
There are many aspects to the game, but one of the most important is knowing how to win. You can’t always go for the kill shot. Sometimes, it’s better to play it safe and not risk losing your position.
One thing you should know about winning is that it’s not just about killing your opponents. You need weapons, armor, healing items, vehicles, and other equipment to be successful in this game.
When playing PUBG Mobile, you’ll want to prioritize weapons over armor because you’ll only have a chance at getting loot once per match. This means that if you die before getting any items or weapons, you’ll have to play through another round to have another chance at getting an item.
It also helps if you’re aware of what weapon deals the most damage because different weapons do different levels of damage depending on their caliber and class type. For example, assault rifles deal more damage than pistols; ARs deal more damage than SMGs; and sniper rifles deal more damage than shotguns.
How to find opponents
The easiest way to play PUBG Mobile is with the help of a friend. However, if you don’t have anyone around with time for this game, you can find opponents by opening the in-game matchmaking service and selecting solo mode. This will match you up with another player and put you in a session.
If you do want to play with friends, all players in the same network can be invited to your game session using the quick invite button on the top left corner of your screen. The player must then accept your invitation by tapping on it and they will be teleported into your world.
The Blue Zone
One of the more challenging aspects of PUBG Mobile is the blue zone. It’s a circle that will gradually shrink and kill every player it surrounds. Players have to be careful not to get caught in the blue zone or they’ll be killed off.

The blue zone will start off huge and gradually lose size over a period of 15 minutes. When the blue zone is at its smallest, it will kill everyone in range.
Players can use grenades or Molotov cocktails to make the circle smaller and less dangerous. They can also wait for it to disappear, which usually happens about five minutes before its time limit expires.
How do you make sure you don’t get caught in the blue zone? If you want to be safe from death, stay away from this area!
Items and inventory
One of the first things you’ll notice when you start playing PUBG Mobile is that there isn’t an inventory menu. Instead, the game uses a system called “hold to loot.”
Simply put, you tap on an item and if it’s an unopened crate, then it will stay in your location for you to pick up later. When opened, crates will give you items like clothing or health packs, but can also contain other items like weapons.
Items are split into three categories: Clothes, Health Packs, and Weapons. You can scroll through your inventory by tapping on one of these categories. Items are sorted alphabetically by default but you can also filter them by rarity if needed.
Clothes include shirts, pants, gloves, hats, shoes, and other items that allow customizing your character with different looks for free. You can unlock more clothes by completing missions or buying them from the store’s weekly rotating stock with coins earned during gameplay or purchased with real money.
Health packs are used to heal yourself when taking damage from enemies or the environment around you. Weapons are used for fighting enemies to last longer in the game so it’s important to have a variety of weapons to choose from.
PUBG Mobile has a smaller map than the original PUBG. It is still an 8×8 kilometer map with four corners, but there are less buildings in the center of the map. This means that players will see each other more often, which can lead to more gunfights.
The only way to get vehicles and weapon drops is to search buildings and loot dead enemies. You can’t purchase vehicles or weapons in this game, so you need to find them while you play.
Every building on the map has a chance of having something hidden inside it. There’s also a chance that your team will find it before you do, so be sure to keep an eye out for them when they’re looting!
