- Plus Bonus Tip on how to learn from the pros by attending the PMNC Malaysia National Championship Grand Finals this weekend.
- Real tips and tricks collected from Vivo team’s experience playing the game
The PUBG MOBILE Malaysia National Championship (PMNC) Grand Finals will be held at Quill Convention Centre, Jalan Sultan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur from 13 to 14 July 2019 where 12 teams will battle it out for RM114,000 in prize pool.
Vivo, as the global Official Smartphone of PUBG MOBILE Club Open 2019 and Official Partner of PUBG MOBILE South East Asia National Championship is sharing the following protips to help Malaysians to improve their game and winning in PUBG Mobile:
1. Do Not Wear Shoes.
There are plenty of shoes to be gotten from the crates after you trade in your BP or UCs, but none of them good for your game. Not wearing shoes actually decreases the noise you make when you run or scurry about and the enemy can’t hear you that well. Notice your enemy’s footsteps are so loud, that’s how loud you are when you wear shoes in the game.
Plus not wearing shoes does not affect your running or movement performance, so there’s no downside, just a great advantage.
2. MK Mutant or AKM?
Most player’s favourite assault rifle (AR) is the AKM which uses 7.62mm bullets has stopping power but too much recoil that messes up your aim. PUBG added a new assault rifle into the game this year, the MK Mutant, which has the same stopping power, uses the 7.62mm bullets but much less recoil and has much smoother handling compared to the AKM.
The Mutant is a rare AR but you can get it at most hot landing zones such as Military Base, Mylta Power, Georgopol and the Prison.
3. How To Use The Flare Gun?
Once in a while you might come across a flare gun in the game, we would urge you to pick it up. When you shoot a flare up, a cargo plane will fly by and drop off some rare supplies like an AWM sniper rifle or a Gilly Suit.
But beware, other players can see the flare too so they’ll be heading to your location to grab the loot. In this case, pick a strategic location near the cargo and take out other players when they arrive one by one.
If you’re playing the squad version where you are randomly setup with three other players, make sure you work together and not go rogue. You need each other to back you up, cover for you when you are searching for loot and outflank the enemy. If you get shot or knocked out to be exact, your teammates can revive you and vice versa.
Make sure you use a
first aid kid or bandage your wound after being revived, don’t worry, plenty of
those to be collected throughout the game.
5. Headphones Or Earphones?
It doesn’t matter, just use a good quality headphone or earphone and it will help you to pinpoint where your enemy is as PUBG does have amazing audio. For instance, if you hear a gunshot to your right ear, the shooter is located to the right. It’s as real as it gets.
6. To Voice Chat Or Not?
PUBG offers an in-game voice chat with your team, with controls to turn off the mic or speaker for voice, or adjust the levels. If you don’t want to be distracted by noisy chit-chat, turn it off but team text chat will always be on and non-intrusive. But a constant communication with your teammates can help you with winning in PUBG Mobile and get that chicken dinner.
7. Best Urban Combat Weapon Combo.
In our experience, beginners would do well to arm themselves with a shotgun, the S686 double-barrel to be exact, with an AR. The AR/shotgun combo is pretty effective during urban combat scenarios, which is where you will end up one time or another in the game.
The S686 has major stopping power and takes out a player using only Level 1 body armour with one shot. Level 2 easily with 2 shots. Very useful for the final shootout but only if you are up-close with your enemy. Usually in the final shootout, it’s good to have an AR with sniping abilities which brings us to…
8. The Versatile M416 Assault Rifle (AR).
Arguably one of the best ARs available in the game, even better than the AKM or M16A in our book. It allows for some of the best performances in close quarter combat scenarios and can be used for sniping over long distance, 600 metres to be exact!
Trust us, that’s more than enough range and causes real damage. Uses 5.56mm bullets just like the M16A or SCAR-L ARs but after testing them all in various scenarios, the M416 wins hands down as one of the best all round AR.
Talking about sniping, you’ll need the 6x or 8x scopes which you’ll search for during gameplay but don’t worry, there’s plenty of them around, in hot zones such as the Military Base, Mylta Power, Georgopol or towns such as Pochinki and Rozhok.
Red Dot or Hologram scopes are everywhere along with angled foregrips (should your gun require it) which, attached to your weapon would decrease recoil and increase it’s performance. Don’t worry about how identify them the mobile version of the game will automatically pick them up and attach them to your weapons during gameplay. The right attachments can help you with winning in PUBG Mobile.
10. Use The Right Device.
Finally, and this is the most important part of the game, use the right device like the Vivo V15Pro, equipped with a Snapdragon 675 chip paired with a 8GB RAM, which allows the game to run in high settings without any issues. Its AI helps manage the RAM you use during gametime. The more you play, the more it knows to allocate more processing power and memory to your gaming.
Slim and lightweight, the V15Pro’s Super AMOLED display has 100% P3 color gamut coverage, ultra-high color saturation and lower power consumption, bringing you a world that’s more vivid and clear. Find out more about the Vivo V15Pro here http://bit.ly/2XPyOdv.
