How to Play Pubg Mobile

How to setup PUBG Mobile

Choose your login wisely: You can play as a Guest, use Facebook, or Twitter to sign-in on PUBG Mobile. Facebook or Twitter means you have to connect to your account, but you can then sync your data, so you can switch to another phone or tablet without losing all your progress.

Prepare your phone: PUBG Mobile is a demanding game and your phone needs to be at its best. Remove anything you don’t need on it, quit all those other apps you might have running in the background. Turn off battery saver, turn off data savers, turn off night mode for the best experience. You might also want to turn off auto-brightness – it might dim the game during the game so you can’t see so well. Brighter = better.Prepare your network: There’s not so much you can do here, but for a lag-free experience, you need a good connection to the PUBG servers. The mobile network will often have a variable speed so it’s Wi-Fi all the way. Test your network speed using something like Speedtest (Apple App Store, Google Play) and avoid trying to play when someone else is streaming 4K content. Our home Wi-Fi reports 5ms, and this works great.

Connect your headphones: PUBG Mobile has great audio and often the speakers on your phone won’t do it justice. Connect your headphones for a more immersive experience – it also helps you pinpoint approaching enemy.

Welcome to the PUBG lobby

When you start the game, you’ll load to the lobby where you can change a full range of settings, select your game type, organise your friends, claim rewards and manage your inventory.

How to pick your server: From the opening screen you’ll see “server” in the top left, with a drop-down menu. You can currently choose from North America, Europe and Asia. The server for your region makes sense, as it’s likely to have the fastest speeds for you. Check the ping, you want it to be green, something like 20ms, for silky smooth play.

How to adjust the frame rate: Tap the settings cog in to the top right-hand corner, then Graphics. Here you’ll find frame rate. If things are looking choppy, you might want to select low. If you’ve a powerful phone, try high.

How to set the graphics level: You’ll be prompted when you first sign-in, but you can adjust the PUBG Mobile graphics level too, to manage the detail. Higher is better as you can see more, but that can adversely affect performance. Have a play with this and frame rate, adjusting if the game doesn’t run smoothly – but keep an eye on the ping too, to make sure it’s not server lag. There’s also an auto option – this will keep the game smooth and adjust the settings for you.
