What is PUBG Mobile?
The game belongs to the currently very popular Battle Royale genre in which the main goal is to compete with other players. PUBG is one of the largest and most well-known brands in the Battle Royale zone alongside H1Z1 or Fortnite Battle Royale.
The gameplay in PUBG Mobile begins when the player jumps out of the parachute to become trapped on an 8 × 8 km island along with 99 other players. Each of them has the task of finding and eliminating the other participants of the game.
The first task after landing should usually be to search the nearest locations as quickly as possible in order to find equipment – weapons, ammunition, and medications such as bandages or painkillers, as well as clothes protecting against injuries like helmets or police vests. You can even find a frying pan!
Time is also another important element of the game – every few minutes you are informed about the game area being decreased. Therefore, usually, you have to be constantly in motion, which adds dynamics to the game. Being outside the designated area reduces the character’s health and leads to failure. Therefore the players move closer to each other all the time.
What makes each game unique is the randomness that affects you every game. Both the placement of the equipment on the map and the locations that will become the area of the game are different each time, so there is no room for routine here. Each time you need to observe what is happening and adapt to the current situation.
To make it even more interesting, the game has also a randomly placed red zone in which you are threatened with an immediate failure due to the bombing that occurs within it. The last element of randomness is the airplane drops which usually contain high-class weaponry. These, of course, lure the nearby players who immediately start fighting for the prize falling from the sky.
In PUBG Mobile, there are several different types of weapons to find and choose – pistols, machine guns, sniper rifles, shotguns, and even a crossbow. You have also a very large selection of parts with which you can improve your arsenal, ranging from larger magazines, through vertical grips, to several types of telescopic sights.
Each game that you play is finally summarized and appropriately rewarded by the so-called BP or Battle Points which you can then spend on interesting visual additions to the outfit of your character.
For people who like to play with friends, PUBG Mobile also offers squads which you can join to face others teams in a co-op game.
