Everyone is talking about battle royale games at the moment and there are two that have taken mobile devices by storm: PlayerUnknown’s Battleground and Call of Duty: Mobile. Both offer their brand of battle royale to gamers on the go. When you start the game, you’ll load to the lobby where you can change a full range of settings, select your game type, organise your friends, claim rewards and manage your inventory.
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.
Get your SAW or sniper rifle from the dropped resupply crate: You’ll notice that there are regular airdrops, with a red smoke indicator on a weapons crate with great weapons in it – usually a SAW or sniper rifle. Keep your eyes on it because it has weapons that will help you win – or present you with a chance to snipe those who go to collect from it. The choice is yours.
Keep your eye out for the flare gun: This was a version 8 addition, letting you fire a flare so you can call in a personal airdrop. That’s great as the supplies come to you, but your enemy will see the signal too, so expect to draw fire as soon as you approach that crate. If you’re inside the playzone, you get weapons, if you’re outside the playzone you get an armoured car – which will take a lot of fire, but can still be destroyed. Be careful where you fire that flare – if your crate lands on a roof, you can’t get to it.
Get your belt buckle in the dirt: As the safe zone decreases, you’ll find yourself in close proximity of all the remaining players. You’ll need to be on your belly to survive, so once the circle is getting small, you’ll basically have to do everything at the crawl or you’ll be shot.
Watch the map for sounds: As people move in vehicles or shoot, the map will indicate noise with orange marks. Use these to make sure you’re aware of where enemy action is – so you can avoid it, observe it, or engage.
Use your grenades: When you’re in the dirt, you’ll often not be able to see your opponent for a clear shot. Try throwing out a grenade and they’ll run to avoid it giving you a target to shoot, or you might wound or kill them. Molotov cocktails are especially effective if you don’t know exactly where they are. Where you have a ridge, throw a grenade over to top.
