PUBG Mobile: What the Best Weapons Are
In a genuinely surprising turn of events, you can now play PUBG, in full, on your mobile phone. And while it would be easy to get bogged down on exactly how the team managed to squeeze the iconic battle royale experience onto such humble devices, we’re more concerned with killing every other player in sight. To do this, we need weapons. There are a variety of them in PUBG Mobile, with slightly different specs to those in the full game, meaning that your PC loadout of choice may not quite apply here.
To help you get fat on chicken dinners, we’ve broken down the best weapons available in the game. Each weapon listed is the best in its respective category, but of course, this is not by any means a definitive list. The choices made below are based on our experience with PUBG Mobile, and are informed as such. We’ve left out pistols due to the fact that they quickly become irrelevant after the first few minutes of the game, as well as melee weapons, largely for the same reasons. Without further ado, let’s dive in. Here are the best weapons you can get in PUBG Mobile.

The Best Weapons in PUBG Mobile
M416 – While the PC experience warrants a more long-ranged play style, the mobile version sets its sights on a generally closer, more action-packed affair, especially early on. The controls are not as precise, so long-range kills are a lot harder to pull off. As a result, you’re going to want something that is versatile, able to dominate at mid range and extend further in a pinch. The M416 is definitely the way to go for this, especially when you start adding attachments into the mix. At full build, the M416 is an all-round powerhouse which will see you through to the final 10 with ease.
You’ll want to pair it with a shotgun or high-firing SMG to cover all of your bases, but it can be used close-range if needed. The M416 is also one of the most common weapons in the game, making it easy to get and upgrade early on. PUBG Mobile definitely encourages a more aggressive play style over the methodical stealth feel that the PC game cultivates. The M416 is the perfect weapon for this, excelling in urban shootouts and final-circle firefights.
