Battlegrounds Mobile India – Complete Weapon List of All the Firearms in the Game

Battlegrounds Mobile India is currently available in open beta for everyone currently in the country. This India-exclusive title was developed by Krafton after the country banned PUBG Mobile back in late 2020 and left over 30 million gamers unable to access their favorite mobile Battle Royale title. BGMI features several cosmetic and text changes, and was developed by the team alongside the Indian government to provide the very best gameplay, perfectly suited to the standards of the country.

Now that BGMI is available, anyone can download and enjoy it. And if you were a fan of PUBG Mobile on PC, you’ll be pleased to know that you can play Battlegrounds Mobile India on PC exclusively on BlueStacks. Our Android app player is the only emulator in the market capable of running this mobile battle royale game. Check out our installation guide if you want to learn how to get started with setting up this game on your computer.

For now, however, we wanted to talk about all the weapons in BGMI, divided by category, as well as give our impressions of each weapon type in the game. If you’re new to the game and want a brief rundown of every firearm in BGMI, then this guide is for you.

Assault Rifles

Your bread and butter for most of your matches. ARs are one of the most widely-used weapons types in BGMI, not because they’re so strong, but because they are very versatile and effective at mid to long ranges. A good assault rifle can function as a DMR, a sniper, and an SMG, though they’re not quite as effective at those roles as more specialized firearms. For this reason, a common loadout in BGMI is an AR in the main slot, and then another weapon suited to the circumstances as a secondary.

The ARs currently in BGMI include the following:

QBZ

  • Ammo Type: 5.56 mm.

  • Ammo Type: 5.56 mm.
  • Damage: 53.
  • Fire Rate: 750 rounds/minute.
  • Description: Massively powerful and with a very high fire rate. However, it only has 25 bullets at base, and can be expanded to a maximum of 35. Ideal for close range encounters.

SCAR-L

  • Ammo Type: 5.56 mm.
  • Damage: 43.
  • Fire Rate: 576 rounds/minute.
  • Description: Similar to the M416 in customization, and quite stable even in full auto. A good choice for most situations.

M16A4

  • Ammo Type: 5.56 mm.
  • Damage: 43.
  • Fire Rate: 600 rounds/minute.
  • Description: Lethal at medium to long distances. Very stable shooting with its 3-round burst mode.

MK47 Mutant

  • Ammo Type: 7.62 mm.
  • Damage: 49.
  • Fire Rate: 600 rounds/minute.
  • Description: Quite strong even at long ranges due to its very stable 2-round burst.

GROZA

  • Ammo Type: 7.62 mm.
  • Damage: 49.
  • Fire Rate: 750 rounds/minute.
  • Description: A gamebreaker. Great for all purposes and very strong. Only found in airdrops.

M762

  • Ammo Type: 7.62 mm.
  • Damage: 49.
  • Fire Rate: 600 rounds/minute.
  • Description: Strong but difficult to control in full auto. Recommended for medium ranges.

Submachine Guns

Submachine guns in Battlegrounds Mobile India are usually weapons suited for close range encounters, often offering low damage but very high fire rate with excellent stability. Don’t try using them when up close, though, as you’ll miss a lot of shots due to the erratic recoil patterns. However, when outfitted properly, some SMGs can be very useful at medium distances, though this is still far from being their specialty.

Battlegrounds Mobile India – Complete Weapon List of All the Firearms in the Game

The SMGs available in BGMI include the following:

Uzi

  • Ammo Type: 9 mm.
  • Damage: 26.
  • Fire Rate: 1,200 rounds/minute.
  • Description: A staggering fire rate combined with great stability make this weapon lethal at close range. With the proper attachments, the stability of this weapon is unmatched, though its lack of optics make it ill-suited for anything other than fighting at short distances.

PP-19 Bizon

  • Ammo Type: 9 mm.
  • Damage: 35.
  • Fire Rate: 660 rounds/minute.
  • Description: Though not quite as fast as other SMGs, this gun more than makes up for it with its massive ammo capacity, coming at a base value of 53 rounds.

MP5K

  • Ammo Type: 9 mm.
  • Damage: 33.
  • Fire Rate: 900 rounds/minute.
  • Description: A good all-rounder SMG, ideal for most situations.

Vector

  • Ammo Type: 9 mm.
  • Damage: 31.
  • Fire Rate: 1,100 rounds/minute.
  • Description: Very fast and powerful, with lots of recoil as well. When fully outfitted, this is a solid all-rounder SMG.

Thompson

  • Ammo Type: .45 ACP.
  • Damage: 40.
  • Fire Rate: 670 rounds/minute.
  • Description: A strong SMG with low fire rate. One of the best options in this category for mid-range engagements.

UMP45

  • Ammo Type: .45 ACP.
  • Damage: 39.
  • Fire Rate: 670 rounds/minute.
  • Description: Similar to the Thompson both in terms of damage and function.

Shotguns

Shotguns in BGMI are all about getting eliminations as fast as possible in one or two point blank shots. However, for maximum effectiveness, you need to be very close to the enemy, which makes these weapons unfeasible for most situations. Nevertheless, in close quarters, no other weapon type comes close to shotguns in terms of raw damage output.

Battlegrounds Mobile India – Complete Weapon List of All the Firearms in the Game

In this category, we won’t talk about fire rates since they vary wildly depending on whether the weapon is pump action or semi-auto. Instead, we will only mention what type of fire mode the weapons have. Also, keep in mind that, while the individual damage of each shotgun pellet is weak, these weapons fire numerous pellets per shot, thus having the potential of inflicting massive damage in short periods.

The shotguns available in the game include the following:

DBS

  • Ammo Type: 12 gauge.
  • Damage: 26 per pellet.
  • Firing Modes: 2-shell pump action.
  • Description: A shotgun with massive fire rate in its special 2-round burst. 2 shots from this gun is all it takes to destroy any player, though be careful if you miss since you’ll have to pump the action every other shot, which can leave you open to enemy fire.

S12K

  • Ammo Type: 12 gauge.
  • Damage: 24 per pellet.
  • Firing Modes: Semi-auto
  • Description: A strong shotgun with semi-auto capabilities, but with a small clip size. On the flipside, since this weapon uses detachable magazines instead of the standard internal tube magazines of other shotguns, reload times are very short, making it a versatile weapon for close range encounters.

M1014

  • Ammo Type: 12 gauge.
  • Damage: 24 per pellet.
  • Firing Modes: Semi-auto.
  • Description: Similar to the S12K, but with a larger tube internal magazine in its base presentation, which takes longer to reload. However, with an extended magazine attachment, the S12K is superior.

S1897

  • Ammo Type: 12 gauge.
  • Damage: 26 per pellet.
  • Firing Modes: Pump action.
  • Description: Standard run-of-the-mill pump-action shotgun. We wouldn’t recommend using it if you can find a better weapon, since its slow pumping action will leave you exposed between shots.

S686

  • Ammo Type: 12 gauge.
  • Damage: 26 per pellet.
  • Firing Modes: Semi-auto.
  • Description: Though technically not a semi-auto, this double-barrel shotgun lets you put two powerful shots downrange before having to reload it. Oftentimes all it takes to knock someone down are those two shots, though you’ll be completely vulnerable if you miss.

Designated Marksman Rifles

DMRs in Battlegrounds Mobile India are the halfway point between ARs and Sniper Rifles, often offering semi-auto capabilities and good precision at long distances, but lacking the extreme stopping power of a Sniper. Consequently, these weapons are better used in single-fire modes, and by taking the time to properly line up every shot, instead of shooting in full-auto like with an AR. The damage of these weapons are often higher than that of ARs, so it’s important to make every shot count.

Battlegrounds Mobile India – Complete Weapon List of All the Firearms in the Game

The DMRs in BGMI include the following:

SLR

  • Ammo Type: 7.62 mm.
  • Damage: 58.
  • Fire Rate: 600 rounds/minute.
  • Description: A DMR with very strong damage and high fire rate. Due to its high fire rate, a skilled player could wield it effectively at both long and medium distances.

SKS

  • Ammo Type: 7.62 mm.
  • Damage: 53.
  • Fire Rate: 670 rounds/minute.
  • Description: Though weaker than the SLR, the SKS has a higher fire rate. Technically, if you can control its massive recoil, you could deal more damage with this one.

Mk14

  • Ammo Type: 7.62 mm.
  • Damage: 61.
  • Fire Rate: 670 rounds/minute.
  • Description: The Mk14 is not only very strong, but it also has full auto capabilities. Though it only has a max capacity of 10 rounds in its base form, players can deal massive damage by setting it to automatic fire and firing in controlled bursts.

Mini14

  • Ammo Type: 5.56 mm.
  • Damage: 46.
  • Fire Rate: 600 rounds/minute.
  • Description: Combining speed with ease of use, the Mini14 is a great all-rounder DMR, allowing the player to shoot with precision over long distances, without worrying too much about recoil. This weapon also has a very large, 20-round magazine size in its base form, giving AR-like usability with the power of a DMR.

Mk12

  • Ammo Type: 5.56 mm.
  • Damage: 46.
  • Fire Rate: 600 rounds/minute.
  • Description: Similar to the Mini14, this weapon is very stable even when shooting very fast, which makes it easy for engaging against targets at medium to long distances.

QBU

  • Ammo Type: 5.56 mm.
  • Damage: 48.
  • Fire Rate: 600 rounds/minute.
  • Description: Arguably a more stable version of the Mini14/Mk12, though with a smaller magazine size. If you can extend it via an attachment, this weapon can be one of the best all-rounder DMRs in the game.

VSS

  • Ammo Type: 9 mm.
  • Damage: 41.
  • Fire Rate: 700 rounds/minute.
  • Description: Somewhat of an outlier as it’s the only DMR that uses such a low caliber ammunition. This weapon is more like a cross between an SMG and a DMR, though it has very high damage potential. Its integrated suppressor makes it very, very silent. Your enemies won’t often know where they’re getting shot from when you attack them with a VSS.

Sniper Rifles

Like in many other shooters, the Sniper Rifles in BGMI are all about precision shooting, often being capable of knocking out foes with two shots to the head. And in the case of the stronger variants, all it takes is a single shot to the head to take down anyone who dares to stand in your sights.

Battlegrounds Mobile India – Complete Weapon List of All the Firearms in the Game

Since all these weapons, with the exception of the Win94, are bolt-action, they have a similar fire rate of about 30 rounds a minute. The Win94, on the other hand, is a lever-action rifle with a fire rate of around 100 rounds a minute. For this reason, and for the sake of brevity, we won’t be listing the fire rate of the weapons in this category. The Sniper Rifles available in BGMI include the following:

M24

  • Ammo Type: 7.62 mm.
  • Damage: 79.
  • Description: One of the strongest and most solid SRs in the game. Offers high damage at extreme distances. Headshots are a guaranteed elimination in most circumstances.

Kar98K

  • Ammo Type: 7.62 mm.
  • Damage: 75.
  • Description: Similar to the M24, but with slightly lower damage.

Mosin Nagant Sniper Rifle

  • Ammo Type: 7.62 mm.
  • Damage: 79.
  • Description: Very similar in form and function to the Kar98K.

Win94

  • Ammo Type: .45 ACP.
  • Damage: 66.
  • Description: In contrast to the other weapons in this category, the Win94 is much faster, with a fire rate that allows it to shine even at medium distances and go up against players with ARs and SMGs. We wouldn’t recommend it for the final stages of a match as you would be much better off with a weapon that can actually knock enemies with one headshot.

AWM

  • Ammo Type: .300 Magnum.
  • Damage: 105.
  • Description: The ultimate SR that uses its own exclusive ammo type. This gun can knock down anyone, even with a body shot if they’re unarmored. Suffice to say, it can go through even level 3 helmets with a single well-placed shot, even at extreme distances.

Light Machine Guns

A niche category with only two weapons. However, they are very, very powerful guns that should not be ignored. LMGs often feature high ammo capacity, with moderate fire rate, and comparable damage to ARs. However, their stability and reliability make them very good choices.

Battlegrounds Mobile India – Complete Weapon List of All the Firearms in the Game

The LMGs available in BGMI include the following:

M249

  • Ammo Type: 5.56 mm.
  • Damage: 45.
  • Fire Rate: 800 rounds/minute.
  • Description: Massive fire rate with great stability and decent damage make for a powerful combination, and the M249 delivers in droves in these aspects. This weapon comes with a base capacity of 75 rounds in its box magazine, which can be extended to a whopping 150 with an extended mag. The M249 is a very powerful weapon that will serve you well even in the final phases of the match. However, its main downside is that it’s only available through air drops, which makes it quite difficult to obtain.

DP-28

  • Ammo Type: 7.62 mm.
  • Damage: 51.
  • Fire Rate: 550 rounds/minute.
  • Description: Its higher caliber makes this weapon slightly more powerful than the M249 shot-by-shot. However, in contrast with its 5.56 mm counterpart, this gun features nearly no customization options, and is stuck with its 47-round drum magazines, which is still quite good. The DP-28 is also quite stable, which makes it a good choice at any point of the match. Simply slap a red dot sight on it, and you’re set.

Pistols

Pistols are sidearms in Battlegrounds Mobile India, often shining only in the beginning of matches, and then being quickly replaced by main weapons. However, a good sidearm can save you in a pinch, in case you run out of ammo in your main weapons and need a quick fix to finish them off.

Battlegrounds Mobile India – Complete Weapon List of All the Firearms in the Game

The pistols available in BGMI include the following:

Skorpion

  • Ammo Type: 9 mm.
  • Damage: 22.
  • Fire Rate: 850 rounds/minute.
  • Description: Insanely stable auto fire with a decent fire rate. Highly customizable and versatile. And the best part is that since this gun technically classifies as a sidearm, which means that you can carry it along with two other main guns, and then pull it out in case of emergencies.

Sawed-Off

  • Ammo Type: 12 gauge.
  • Damage: 22 per pellet.
  • Firing Modes: Semi-auto.
  • Description: Similar to the S686 shotgun, though this is technically a sidearm, which means you can carry it along with two other main weapons. Not as strong as other shotguns, and the bullet spread is massive, which makes it useful only at point blank range.

P92

  • Ammo Type: 9 mm.
  • Damage: 35.
  • Fire Rate: 420 rounds/minute.
  • Description: Strong, steady, and reliable, with a decent fire rate to boot. You really can’t go wrong with the P92.

P18C

  • Ammo Type: 9 mm.
  • Damage: 23.
  • Fire Rate: 1,000 rounds/minute.
  • Description: Known commonly as the Glock, this sidearm features full auto capabilities, though it has massive recoil. Still, it’s a great starter weapon that can also save you later on in a fight.

Desert Eagle

  • Ammo Type: .45 ACP.
  • Damage: 62.
  • Fire Rate: 240 rounds/minute.
  • Description: Heavy and powerful, this handgun packs a veritable punch.

R45

  • Ammo Type: .45 ACP.
  • Damage: 55.
  • Fire Rate: 240 rounds/minute.
  • Description: Similar to the Desert Eagle in all aspects except bullet capacity, since this one can only hold 6, as opposed to the Deagle’s 7-round magazine size.

P1911

  • Ammo Type: .45 ACP.
  • Damage: 41.
  • Fire Rate: 545 rounds/minute.
  • Description: The “ol’ reliable” of .45 ACPs pistols. Great all-rounder with good damage, but with limited ammo capacity compared to its 9 mm counterparts.

R1895

  • Ammo Type: 7.62 mm.
  • Damage: 55.
  • Fire Rate: 150 rounds/minute.
  • Description: The only weapon in this list that we can outright say NOT to use, ever. While it might hit hard, it kicks like a mule, has very low fire rate, and takes an eternity to reload. It’s better than your bare fists, but we strongly suggest replacing it as soon as possible.

Melee

The same melee weapons that are available in PUBG Mobile return in Battlegrounds Mobile India. And just like its original counterpart, the best weapon in this category is, and always will be, the Pan. Not only is it stronger than your fists, but this weapon can also protect your body somewhat when you carry it on your waist, as it can physically block enemy shots.

We left out the throwable weapons since we believe those might require an article of their own, considering how their uses can vary greatly according to the circumstances. Regardless, the list we’ve provided above can give you a great overview of all the weapons that you will find in Battlegrounds Mobile India. Regardless of their stats, however, we strongly suggest finding a weapon you feel comfortable with, learning its nuances, and start dominating your enemies with it—there’s nothing better in these Battle Royale games than getting good and winning with your favorite weapons.
