However, while there’s plenty of fun to be had in Pixel Gun, the game is only available on mobile devices.

This process is very simple and takes a few moments. Pixel Gun is a bit large so it could take a bit more time to download and install.

And speaking of BlueStacks, there are quite a few advantages of playing Pixel Gun 3D on PC compared to doing so on your phone. Here are a few ways that our Android emulator can give you the upper hand.

Play With the Best Graphics and Performance at a Fraction of the Cost

Good phones are quite expensive to the point where they’re out of reach for most of us. However, PCs are much more common; it’s much more likely to find someone with a decent PC or laptop than with a high-end phone. In this sense, it stands to note that these users will have a much better time gaming on their computers than on their phone.

With BlueStacks, you can run virtually any Android game on your PC, with much better performance than even the most expensive mobile devices. This is because, more often than not, your PC hardware is much better than the one in your phone. As long as you fulfill the recommended requirements for BlueStacks, you’ll be able to enjoy any phone with superior graphics and performance, and on your large monitor with the best possible resolution.

Shoot and Run With the Best Precision Using the Keymapping Tool

For shooters like Pixel Gun 3D, you’ll need the best controls in order to fight effectively. And while the mobile touchscreen controls are decent for the most part, they can’t hold a candle against a traditional mouse and keyboard setup.

The BlueStacks Keymapping Tool is your key to success in these games as it allows you to create control schemes involving your mouse and keyboard. In other words, it lets you play Pixel Gun on PC just like any other shooter game for this platform, using your WASD keys to move and your mouse to shoot with much better precision than with touchscreen controls.

After you launch the game for the first time, you’ll notice on the Game Guide panel that you already have a predefined control scheme for Pixel Gun created by the team at BlueStacks. We create these schemes to serve as entry points for everyone, but you can easily modify our keybindings to suit your preferences via the Keymapping Tool, by pressing Ctrl + Shift + A. In this new screen, you can add new shortcuts to the screen, modify and move existing bindings and shortcuts, and customize every aspect of the controls.

We suggest spending a few moments to get familiar with the controls so you can give your enemies a proper thrashing once you enter the field. You can also toggle the controls overlay on/off by pressing Ctrl + Shift + F6. Activating this feature will make it so that your bindings are always on screen, which can make it better to learn all the shortcuts and buttons for the game if you’re just getting started. Once you’re proficient, you can just turn them off if they’re getting in your way.

Share and Stream Your Best Moments on BlueStacks

And if you’re a content creator, BlueStacks has you covered as well.

With the BlueStacks Recorder, you can easily capture clips of your best plays and save them as .mp4 files in a directory of your choosing. For streamers, you can also activate Streamer Mode, which will make the screen pop out from the BlueStacks frame, making it much easier to select it on your favorite streaming software such as OBS.

Not only does it give you the chance to play on a larger screen and with the best graphics and performance, but it also grants you superior controls and the ability to capture and stream your greatest moments.
