What is Recoil in PUBG Mobile?

When a player is shooting with a gun, there’s a “Spring back” action which is called recoil. It throws the shot off from the gun, but they need to know how to control it. If you can’t control the recoil, then you might miss the shot. So, it is better to learn recoil control in PUBG. If you learn to control recoil, then it will be easy for you to play PUBG and kill enemies.

Now, let’s move to the main part, how to control Recoil in PUBG Mobile?

Control Recoil In PUBG Mobile

If you are new to PUBG game and you are using a weapon for the first time, then first find a wall and burst fire. Start shooting at the wall, and imagine the wall is your enemy. Keep practising until you understand what you need to do. It is good to start using AKM, as it is the most powerful weapon.

Pull the gun down a bit while you shoot by using your right thumb and control the recoil. With this, you will get your target and will help you to shoot properly. It’s not that easy, and you need much practise for that.

At the first time, most of the players get panic when the enemy comes and start shooting. But you must not panic, just start shooting and think that the enemy is the wall where you were practising. However, it is easy to tell, but a little bit hard to shoot for the first time. But don’t worry, just practise, and you will learn what to do.

Here are some tips to reduce recoil and aim well in PUBG.

Keep Practising 

The developers have designed each weapon to have a different recoil pattern. Few of the guns move vertically upwards or downwards, and others move left or right.

But, you must use only one weapon and keep practising at a time until you get used to it. From the training ground, pick any weapon and start practising with that weapon only. Start firing on the wall or any other target and observe the pattern of the bullet.

After the pattern is drawn, stop making any patterns from the bullet and try to control the cross-hairs and stay in the middle. Like, if the bullet pattern is moving downwards, then the player should move and aim it upwards to offset for the recoil.

Fix your ADS Sensitivty Settings

You must fix your ADS settings. If it is hard to aim downwards, then do plus and if hard to control then minus. Keep testing it until you are satisfied.

Use Gyroscope

Use Gyroscope and control recoil smoothly.

Gyroscope helps the players with up-down and parallel movement without using their fingers or thumb to move the player manually. Gyroscope sensor is used to optimize the screen orientation with the mobile’s physical movement. Most of the players use Gyroscope to play much better. By using Gyroscope, it is much easier to kill the enemies as you don’t need to touch the screen to change the orientation.

How to Enable Gyroscope in PUBG Mobile?
