Prepare your phone: PUBG Mobile is a demanding game and your phone needs to be at its best. Remove anything you don’t need on it, quit all those other apps you might have running in the background. Turn off battery saver, turn off data savers, turn off night mode for the best experience.Our home Wi-Fi reports 5ms, and this works great.
Connect your headphones: PUBG Mobile has great audio and often the speakers on your phone won’t do it justice. Connect your headphones for a more immersive experience – it also helps you pinpoint approaching enemy.

Welcome to the PUBG lobby.
How to pick your server: From the opening screen you’ll see “server” in the top left, with a drop-down menu. You can currently choose from North America, Europe and Asia. The server for your region makes sense, as it’s likely to have the fastest speeds for you. Check the ping, you want it to be green, something like 20ms, for silky smooth play.
How to adjust the frame rate: Tap the settings cog in to the top right-hand corner, then Graphics. Here you’ll find frame rate. If things are looking choppy, you might want to select low. If you’ve a powerful phone, try high.
Higher is better as you can see more, but that can adversely affect performance. There’s also an auto option – this will keep the game smooth and adjust the settings for you.
How to adjust the aiming reticule: Tap the settings cog in to the top right-hand corner, then Basic. Here you can change the colour of the crosshair.
Turn on/off Aim Assist: How hard do you want the game to be? Aim Assist will help you hit the target if you’re generally pointing the right way. It’s in settings > basic.
It can be a lot faster and natural when you have to react quickly. Head into settings > basic and you’ll find the option.
Changing the graphics level requires a game restart, however.
How to get clothes on your character: You start in your underwear, but you can accumulate clothes in your inventory. Some clothes are temporary, some you get to keep. There are always clothes in the game to pick up as you play.
Under the start button you’ll see the option to choose between FPP or TPP (third person perspective). Both gaming views are ranked separately, so make sure you play both.
How to select Classic or Arcade mode: Under the start button you’ll see a drop-down menu for Classic or Arcade. Select Classic for the longer 100 player game, or Arcade for the shorter, faster, games. There are now a range of Arcade modes from version 6 – Mini-Zone, Quick Match or Sniper Training. You can have a random selection or choose which you want to play.
Select a different map: From version 5 onwards there are two maps – Erangel and Miramir. You’ll find the option to select the map under the game mode. If you select both, it will randomly pick one for youTap here to pick the game type. There are daily missions for different types of games, so it’s worth mixing it up. Sometimes you just want to destroy everyone, sometimes you’ll want a squad.
In settings > audio, you’ll find the controls. If you don’t want to be listening to some fool’s jibber-jabber, just turn it off. Once you start the game, you can also turn your own mic on/off as well as voice from other players. From version 6, you can silence a particular player, but you can’t turn off text chat for your team.
Change the controls: This is a biggy. PUBG Mobile offers different controls for foot and vehicles and you can adjust both. Head into settings > controls or settings > vehicles and you’ll find the options for defaults.
Change the size or location of controls: Yes, you can also customise the in-game UI. In the controls area above, there’s a “customise” option. Just play the game a bit before you start moving them.
Whether you’re in a team or on your own, here’s some tips to get you through the game.
Best clothes for PUBG characters: This isn’t a fashion show, it’s battle royale, so think tactically. If you’re wearing white jeans and a yellow puffer jacket, you’ll be easily spotted, and easily to target. Think muted shades and of course, camouflage, to give you a tactical advantage. It’s tempting to wear a baseball cap, but you really want a helmet.
You can drop your clothes and others might come over to swap. You can then swipe a better set of clothes. OK, sometimes it doesn’t happen, but sometimes you’ll get a great set of threads! Using this information you can pick your INFIL point, avoiding areas full of other players. Bigger towns attract more jumpers.
Pop your ‘chute manually, and you can drift a long way across the map to a different area. Remember though, that while you’re drifting, others are gathering.You might need to zoom in as the game progresses, especially towards the closing stages.
Avoid the red zone: The map also shows you the red zone, which is an artillery barrage. Grab that protective kit so you can take a little more damage. Ensure that auto pick-up is turned on and you’ll replace kit with higher rated stuff when you find it. An assault rifle and an SMG is a great combo, two pistols is not. In the new version 6 armoury, you can see the characteristics of all the weapons and mods.

copes make it much easier to hit the target. Bingo, you’ll be dropping bad guys in no time. If you have spare sights, share them with your team.
. Open the backpack Avoid big magnification on SMGs – they’re better at close quarters combat where you just want a holographic sight. Silencers do not change the ballistic properties of weapons.
Lie down when raiding crates: When you kill someone, you can raid the crate they drop for more stuff
Master sprinting: To move across the map quickly, sprinting is often the way to do it. You can lock sprinting by tapping the running icon next to the map. Then you can run and look at the map, have a drink or whatever. If you’re taking fire, move and hit the deck, keep moving and the enemy will lose you. Then you need to locate the enemy, get eyes on them, hit the aim and neutralise thehow to m. Simple. (But sometimes you’ll just get dead.)
Don’t jump out of fast moving vehicles: Yes, you’ll die. Try not to crash as your vehicle will take on damage. If you lose a tyre, it won’t drive so well.
Collect medikits, always: You will get shot and you can often recover from that with some medical attention. Pickup medical supplies because they will often be more useful to you than grenades The aim isn’t to kill the most people, it’s to be the last player standing. Hiding and staying out of trouble is a good way to do that.
. If there are people on the bridge, you’re better swimming.

Tips for PUBG Mobile squad play
Co-op play is a massive part of PUBG and here’s a couple of extra tips to help teams win. This applies both for Classic and Arcade modes.
oordinate your landing zone: When you ‘chute into onto the island you can coordinate your LZ by opening the map and tapping to drop a marker. Use the parachuting tips above to get everyone in the same place. Otherwise you’ll spend half the game trying to rendezvous.
It also means you can use interlocking fields of fire to engage any enemy. Don’t, for example, bunch around a dropped crate as you’ll be taken out with a burst from a machine gun. Fighting as a team is the best way to win.
Watch your partner’s health meter in the top left corner, while you eliminate the threat. If you die trying to revive your team, you all lose. If you’ve been shot, crawl into cover so your teammate isn’t exposed.

Tips for winning PUBG Mobile
All the above will serve you well, but the top 10 battle is the fiercest. Here are some tips to help you through the final stages of the game.The choice is yours.
Watch the map for sounds: As people move in vehicles or shoot, the map will indicate noise with orange marks. Molotov cocktails are especially effective if you don’t know exactly where they are.
Finally: how long does a PUBG Mobile game last? About 30 minutes is a safe guess if you’re playing on classic mode.
Loot first, shoot later
Let me re-emphasize this one last time-if you die in PUBG you are dead.
