Every game of PUBG Mobile is different. It's why players love the game so much and keep coming back for more.
So, it is as important as ever to remind
yourself of how to stay alive. Whether you’re a vet or a noob, you need to know
the best tactics to finding success, and with a new map it is as important as
So, what are the most important tips and tricks for PUBG Mobile to win you that sweet, sweet chicken dinner?
Choose your spot and be patient
Season 11 bought a new map to PUBG Mobile and everyone has had to adjust to the changes that come with it. There is still a huge rush of people going for the updated parts to see what’s what and get the best loot.
PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE: Hold steady and wait to make that kill
Those places are regularly a mess, they are packed and if you don’t get their first… no chicken for you!
Even when there hasn’t been an update, you
need to make sure you choose the right spot to parachute to, and once you get
their take your time! There is no rush, and if you are careful you can find
great loot and set yourself up for a successful game as everyone else kills
each other off.
Choose your weapons wisely
Seeing as this is a shooter and your goal
is to stay alive, as you might have guessed, your weapons are crucial.
SHOTGUN THE SHOTGUN: There is no substitute
It’s worth noting this can depend heavily on where you drop, what is available and what your style is, but there are certain things you should never turn your nose up to.
A shotgun, especially early on while you’re
raiding and looting, is immense. In close quarters you can win a gunfight
before the opponent has an opportunity to shoot.
Secondly, find a ranged weapon – an AR,
sniper, etc – and whack a scope on that bad boy. The map is big and has lots of
open spaces, and on your phone you need to enhance your vision. A scope is a
As much as weapons and taking lives are important, good armor will literally save your life.
ARMOR UP: Without protective gear, you will be found out very quickly
That may seem obvious, but the secret to it is keeping it fresh. As you move around you will almost certainly find more armor as you go. Update yours for unused armor.
Damaged armor is a disaster waiting to happen – so swap it out. Half damaged heavy armor isn’t actually heavy armor, so if you find slightly less powerful but undamaged armor, get that on.
Don’t get caught sprinting
We’ve all been there. You’re looting a building that has a ton of untouched gear and weapons, and the storm is about to move in but you’re way away from the circle.
SLOW AND STEADY: By carelessly sprinting, you will literally give the game away
So, you decide to loot until the last possible moment and then make a mad dash.
It isn’t worth it.

Not only does it risk unnecessary damage in
the storm, it makes you an easy and obvious target and puts you at a
disadvantage once/if you reach the circle.
Which leads me onto my next point…
There will be times you have to cross big areas of relatively open land or make a dash across a road, it’s unavoidable. It makes you an easy target, but you can make it tougher.
SLALOM STYLE: Move from side-to-side to avoid being picked off
Zig and zag like there is no tomorrow, especially when you come under fire. The more unpredictable and frenetic your movement is the harder you are to target.
For what it’s worth when you find yourself being shot at, particularly by a sniper, instinct may tell you to duck and cover. I hate to tell you, this is actually making their job a little easier. Instead, run for cover but move around like crazy – it’ll be much harder to pinpoint you.
Pick your shots
The nature of the game, being that you have only the ammo you find, means it can be difficult to stockpile ammo, thus allowing you to riddle opponents with bullets.
PICK YOUR SHOT: Wait for the optimum moment to strike
That enough is reason to be stingy with your ammo. Pick your shots carefully, only shoot when you feel you have a good chance to kill them – especially if they don’t know where you are. This keeps you hidden and gives you a better chance at the kill.

Once you’re in a firefight this is equally
as important. Say you damaged someone and they hid just before you get a
killshot. Don’t keep shooting at where they’ll pop out, it’s a waste of ammo
and gives them a window to kill you when you reload, but aim at that spot and
wait for them to pop out.
Barefoot is best
Play barefoot. This may sound weird, but
there is method to the madness.
CLUNKY: Boots are too noisy and can give you away
Early on in the game, when you’re looting buildings,
boots are loud. Barefoot means you can move quietly and increases your chances
of being the one to find your enemy, not the other way around.
This is also crucial during the end of the game. The last thing you want when the circle is small is to give away your position to the elite few left. Take those boots off and move quietly towards that chicken dinner.
