Master the Melee: BlueStacks Guide to Melee Weapons in PUBG Mobile
PUBG Mobile introduces players to a number of guns and weapons. These guns and weapons are reliable throughout the game and since the game is a fast paced action game, the guns play a major role. The classification of weapons is done on the basis of categories and there are multiple guns in every category. However, guns are not the only kind of weapons in the game. There are multiple other lethal weapons like frag grenades and Molotov cocktails. These weapons are lethal as well and deal a lot of damage to the enemy.
On playing the game on the BlueStacks Emulator, we figured out there is one category of weapons that is used by players a lot. The weapons in this category are fun to play with but are not very suitable for combat situations. These are, however, effective at the beginning of the match, but it is always advised to refrain from using these weapons in active combat situations. These are close combat weapons or equipment that have been added in the game to serve a number of other purposes than just fighting. This category of weapons is called Melee weapons. These come in the fourth slot of the loadout.
What Are Melee Weapons?
Melee weapons are makeshift equipment that are not very high on damage. These are also not really weapons. There are 4 melee weapons in PUBG Mobile dealing different amounts of damage and coming with different uses. The melee weapons in PUBG Mobile are Pan, Sickle, Crowbar and Machete.
All of these weapons are not regular combat weapons but are things of daily use. These equipment do not deal much damage, but these are there for a reason.
Pan is the most famous melee weapon in PUBG Mobile. It is also the most effective among the melee weapons. The Pan has the highest damage rate. The damage rate of the Pan is 80 on the body. The headshot damage of the Pan is 200. The Pan also has multiple other advantages. It stays on the back of the player, and it is effective against enemies firing bullets at you from behind. If the bullets hit the pan, it does not do any damage to the players.
You can also hit a coming bullet with a pan if you time it right. This can be a very boss move and can be very impressive if done in front of your teammates. The damage mentioned above is recorded on the bare body of the enemy without any helmet and vest. The damage done by a pan on a level 1 helmet is 140, and it reduces to 56 on the level 1 vest. The damage further reduces to 120 on a headshot on the level 2 helmet and 48 on the level 2 vest. Like every other weapon, the pan also does the least amount of damage to the level 3 gears. The pan does a damage of 90 to the level 3 helmet and a damage of 36 on the body of the enemy player.
Sickle is another one of those weapons in PUBG Mobile which is not really a weapon. It is a piece of farming equipment that has been incorporated in the loadout of the game. It has the second most amount of damage. It does body damage of 60 and headshot damage of 150. This means that it will take at least 2 shots on the head of the enemy without any helmet to take them down. It is best to aim for the head with this weapon as body shots may take longer even if the enemy is not wearing any vest. You might need to connect 5 to 6 body shots in order to get rid of the enemy and by this time, there is a very high chance of you getting sprayed or shot by the enemy.
The damage done by the sickle on a level 1 helmet is 105 and this reduces to 42 on the level 1 vest. The damage done by the sickle on a level 2 helmet is 90 and the same on a level 2 vest is 36. The level 3 gear is the least affected with the sickle. The damage done with a sickle on a level 3 helmet is 67.50, and it can deal a damage of 27 on a level 3 vest.
Machete is a rendition of knife. It is a sharp object which is bigger than a knife but not as big as a sword. The weapon might look deadly, but it does not do a lot of damage to the enemy. It shares the same amount of damage as the sickle, and it might be a surprise to a lot of players who think of the weapon to be effective. It looks lethal but does a damage body damage of 60 and damage on the head is 150. This is the damage done to the enemy when the enemy is not wearing any gear. The damage done to a level 1 helmet by a machete is 105 and the damage done to a level 1 vest by a machete is 42.
The damage reduces when the enemy is wearing a level 2 helmet and the machete can only do a damage of 90. The level 2 vest can be given a 36 damage with a machete. The level 3 gear takes the least amount of damage with the machete out of all the gears. The machete can deal a damage of 67.25 on a level 3 helmet. The damage done to the level 3 vest by a machete is 27.
Crowbar is a melee weapon that does the least damage in PUBG Mobile and players should avoid it unless the situations are really dire. The headshot damage of the crowbar is 90 and the body damage of the weapon is 60 which is the lowest among all the melee weapons in PUBG Mobile. The low damage of the weapon continues on the gears as well. It can do damage of 62.90 to a level 2 helmet and a damage of 42 to a level 1 vest. The level 2 helmet can be given a damage of 54 and the level 2 vest can be given a damage of 36.
The least damage dealing continues even with level 3 gears. The level 3 helmet can be given a damage of 40.50 and a level 3 vest can be given a damage of 27. It is best to not chase an enemy with this weapon as it may take a lot of shots to knock the enemy out.
Things to Keep in Mind While Using Melee Weapon
Firstly, melee weapons are not very effective and can cost you the match if used carelessly. Secondly, it is very important to use the melee weapon on the head of the enemy when you are extremely close, other than that it is not effective and can be considered a very foolish move.
Thirdly, the melee weapons should only be used at the start of the match when other players don’t really have a lot of guns or when confirming a kill. Confirming a kill with a melee weapon will save you bullets.
These are the things that you need to know and keep in mind about melee weapons. The weapons are not very effective but are always fun to use. Using them perfectly can help you look cool and impressive in front of your teammates, but you should definitely avoid them in close combat situations.
