♠  About Play zone, Safe Zone, and Red zone in PUBG MOBILE:-

Once everyone jumps from the cargo plane and settles down on the ground, the map starts restricting the play zone area in 5 minutes, i.e., you have to be in the play zone area before the time ticks out.

  • In the picture shown above, the white circle area indicates the safe zone area, and the area within the blue circle indicates the unsafe zone.
  • The blue circle starts converging to the white circle once the time is up (Time is given to reach the safe zone, initially – 5m, later 4m, 3m, 2m…)
  • As soon as the blue circle reaches the white circle, the countdown of time again starts, and the white circle again becomes smaller, but this time a little less time will be given to the players to reach the white circle(safe or play zone area).
  • As the players die, correspondingly, the safe zone converges so that it becomes easy for the players to hunt an enemy.

Tip:- Try to be near the white circle boundary (in a house) because the enemies try to get into the white circle (safe zone) ASAP. So you can easily aim at them while they come running towards you, provided you be a sharpshooter and be hidden. 

  • To eliminate few players, a red zone area is started. You can see a circle completely red in the above picture, which implies that the red zone has started.
  • During this red zone, multiple numbers of bombs are being dropped. The player should either escape out of the red one or get into the house nearby to be safe. If the bomb does not drop on you even after you are on the ground, you are lucky.
  • The red zone goes off just after 10-20 seconds.

♠  How can you help your friend?

  • If your friend gets knocked out, you can help him by reviving him/her. You just got to go close to him/her and revive. It takes 0.8s to revive. But if he is killed, you cannot do anything about him/her.

♠  Vehicles in PUBG Mobile

  • Car:- 4 seaters. Only 3 can fire except the driver while driving.
  • Jeep:- 4 seaters. Only 3 can fire except the driver while driving.
  • Bike:- 2 and 3 seaters both are available. But nobody can fire while riding.
  • Boat:- More than 4 seaters. Except the driver rest can fire.

♠  Be Alert!

  • You can see the orange marks on the map in the above picture, which means be alert!
  • The mark with legs indicates that the enemy is just around you or passing by.
  • Another mark with a bullet indicates that the enemy is either shooting you or some other enemy.

♠  PUBG Mobile Tips and Tricks

  • Once you are about to jump from the cargo plane, jump where the less number of people jump provided a building nearby. Release the parachute if you don’t find anyone near you. Never jump in the water!
  • Do not waste your time on the sky. The time you waste swirling in the air will affect you once you are on the ground when the enemy might have already looted the weapons and is ready to fire on the ground.
  • Once you are on the ground, search for the weapons ASAP. Armour is also crucial as it can take few hits initially. And get all the necessary stuff.
  • Hit an enemy only if he/she is in your range. Hitting an enemy out of your range might not kill your target completely. But it will awaken the nearby enemy about your existence.
    • Guns like Tommy Gun, Uzi might show you the enemy out of your range once you apply Mira dot. But never go to the fire.
    • Shotguns and SMGs are for up-close damage. Pistols are for mid-range. Snipers, Rifles are for long-distance shots.
  • It would be best if you learned when to hide and when to fire. This plays a critical role in PUBG Mobile.
  • Keep an eye on the map.
    • To know whether you are in the safe zone or not.
    • To know how long you have to travel to be in the safe zone. Distance and time are shown in meters and min, respectively, just below the map.
    • To know whether a vehicle is present near you or not( wheel mark is shown on the map)
    • To know the enemy’s existence near you ( a bullet & a leg mark).
  • If you are far from the safe zone, try to search for a vehicle using the map. It is better to use wheels rather than vehicles. Because if you go on running, you will be spotted by an enemy.
  • Communicate with your mates. Thanks to PUBG Mobile that it allows communication via audio, which is very helpful.
  • An eye icon helps you to view 360º without changing your actual direction,
  • The last few minutes in PUBG Mobile is very crucial. The enemies stay low and wait for you to show up first. So it is better to stay alert and not run around continuously.

If you follow these tips & tricks and keep practicing, no one can stop you from having your chicken dinner!
