The Most Comprehensive PUBG Mobile Weapons Guide: Updated For 2019

The Most Comprehensive PUBG Mobile Weapons Guide:...

We already have a weapons guide for PUBG Mobile, but it is nearly a year old. The game has changed quite a lot since then, and lots of weapons were added to the maps – especially with the latest “zombie” update. Therefore, we have decided to update our guide: Below, you will see PUBG Mobile weapon tables with detailed info, our recommendations for each category, and some tips and tricks regarding them. Let’s start: We have a lot of data to list.

DISCLAIMER

BlueHole does not share official weapon stats, so nobody really knows how much damage a specific weapon really has. Players try to gather this data unofficially by data mining and setting up private matches. And the results of these gatherings are slightly different from each other, as expected. The damage and headshot damage information you will see in this guide are NOT OFFICIAL. They are based on player data mining and statistics – so you may see slightly different values at other websites. However, they will give you a pretty good idea about the power of weapons and we believe that they are pretty close to the official numbers.

Assault Rifles

ASSAULT RIFLES
NAME BASE DAMAGE HEADSHOT DAMAGE (*) CAN BE FOUND IN
M416 43 101 World
SCAR-L 43 101 World
M16A4 43 101 World
QBZ 43 101 World
AKM 49 115 World
GROZA 49 115 Crate
AUG A3 43 101 Crate
G36C 43 101 World
Beryl M762 47 110 World

(*) without a helmet

Groza is actually the most powerful in this list: Even AUG A3 has the same stats, Groza can fire much faster and accurately. By default, every player has 100 health points in the game (without any kind of boost) so technically, two bullets from a Groza will be enough to take down any unarmored opponent. However, it is an airdrop weapon, so don’t expect to see it in the world. Among other options, we love to use QBZ and M416. QBZ is an amazingly steady weapon even in automatic mode, and M416 has unmatched fire rate.

Sniper Rifles

SNIPER RIFLES
NAME BASE DAMAGE HEADSHOT DAMAGE (*) CAN BE FOUND IN
KAR98K 75 187 World
M24 88 197 World
AWM 120 300 Crate
Win94 66 165 World

AWM is still the king in this category, as can be clearly seen. However, because it is an airdrop, you won’t be getting your hands on it that much. KAR98K is the next best thing: If you are handy with it, you can kill a player with a single headshot that wears a level 2 helmet. AWM is, of course, superior, as it can take down any enemy even with a level 3 armor set, but KAR98 will be the most “available” choice in this category.

DMR Rifles

DMR (MARKSMAN) RIFLES
NAME BASE DAMAGE HEADSHOT DAMAGE (*) CAN BE FOUND IN
SKS 53 124 World
VSS 41 96 World
Mini14 46 108 World
MK14 61 143 Crate
SLR 58 136 World
QBU 48 112 World

DMR weapons are somewhere between sniper and assault rifles: They offer medium range shooting capabilities with an increased rate of fire. They are not as fast as assault rifles nor strong as sniper rifles, like we said, somewhere in between. Our personal choice in this category is VSS: It has a superior fire rate. Yes, its damage is not as high as others, but you can shoot a lot faster. QBU and SLR are other good options to consider – they are almost like semi-automatic sniper rifles. In any case, you don’t need to use air-drop weapons in this category.

SMG and LMG

SMG (SMALL MACHINE GUN) & LMG (LIGHT MACHINE GUN)
NAME BASE DAMAGE HEADSHOT DAMAGE (*) CAN BE FOUND IN
UZI 26 47 World
UMP9 39 70 World
Vector 34 61 World
Tommy Gun 40 72 World
M249 45 103 Crate
DP28 51 117 World

Play PUBG MOBILE on BlueStacks 4

Most players prefer to use UZI, but we like UMP9 better. It is a personal choice: UZI spreads the bullets less, but UMP9 has higher damage. You will be good with any of them, pick according to your game style. Vector is also a good option but empties the clip pretty fast. When it comes to LMG category, almost every player picks M249 because of its fire rate and attack power. It will be our recommendation too; you can’t go wrong with an M249 – especially if you are trying to control narrow but open places.

Shotguns

SHOTGUN
NAME BASE DAMAGE HEADSHOT DAMAGE (*) CAN BE FOUND IN
S686 24 306 World
S1897 24 306 World
S12K 22 279 World

If you are trying to clear out a building, shotguns will be the most useful weapon. You don’t even need to aim: Just point the hollow end to the enemy and pull the trigger. S12K is a semi-automatic
shotgun – it has less stopping power but can shoot faster and longer. Pick S12K if you are really terrible at aiming. S686 is the better option with a lot more power but only has two slugs.

Handguns and Melee Weapons

HANDGUN & MELEE
NAME BASE DAMAGE HEADSHOT DAMAGE (*) CAN BE FOUND IN
P92 35 69 World
P1911 41 81 World
R1895 55 109 World
P18C 23 44 World
R-45 55 109 World
Crossbow 105 241 World
Sawed-Off 20 240 World
Skorpion 22 44 World
Pan 80 120 World
Punch 18 27 World

Behold, the pan, the mightiest of all melee weapons.

Crossbow is clearly the overpowered weapon here; it is almost as strong as AWM. However, it is also a very difficult weapon to use: Crossbow requires precise aiming and should be used as an “assassination” weapon. In other words, use it against stationary targets, preferably the ones who turned their backs to you. Also, don’t forget you are using BlueStacks: Aiming and shooting will be much easier for you, thanks to the mouse and keyboard support. Among other options, the pan is… Well, it is a pan. Most players will laugh at it but if you grab one at the beginning of a round, you can kill an unarmored player with only one hit, so it is still an option. Also, don’t forget that it also counts as armor. When it comes to handguns, none of them are good to be honest, but we like to use P18C because of its fire rate. Skorpion is also pretty good but empties the clip faster.

Tips, Tricks, And Things To Know

A couple of things to remember:

  • Just because we listed a weapon as a “world drop” does not mean that you will be able to find it in every match. For example, Skorpion and G36C are latest additions to the PUBG collection and they seem to be appearing more on the Vikendi map. On other maps, they may not appear at all – there is no guarantee that you will be able to find every world drop weapon during a match.
  • Use the base damage values to understand how many hits will be needed to take down an unarmored player. As mentioned above, the default health value is 100.
  • Our recommendations in this guide are personal opinions. Just because we think a specific type of weapon is good, that does not mean that it will be the right choice for you. Pick weapons according to your game style – the “best” weapon is the one you can use more efficiently.
  • Hip-firing is useful for SMG and shotguns only – this means shooting without aiming with the right mouse button. This is a useful tactic especially inside the buildings: The bullet spread will be enough to kill your enemies in narrow places. So, if you are using an SMG or a shotgun, don’t waste time by carefully aiming.
