The PUBG Mobile 0.7.0 update introduced several elements to the game, bringing it closer to its PC version. Among changes in maps, new items and new weapons, the main novelty is undoubtedly the addition of the frantic, intense and exciting War Mode.
Although War Mode is extremely chaotic and frantic, there are ways to lessen chance and stand out in the midst of madness.
Check now 8 tips to improve your performance and win this kill.
1. Know the features of War Mode well
War Mode on PUBG Mobile consists of a Deathmatch
in which 20 players
land in a random region of the Erangel map, within a safe area with fixed dimensions of 500x500m
(the entire map is 8x8km). Unlike other modes, in Guerra, players have infinite lives and always return to battle a few seconds after being shot down.
Another difference is that in War Mode, players do not arrive defenseless on the battlefield and already jump off the plane equipped with: 1 random weapon, 1 fragmentation grenade, 5 bandages and helmet, vest and backpack, all level 1
War Mode matches end when a player or team reaches a certain score. Points are counted whenever an opponent is knocked out or shot, or when a partner is revived. If in 15 minutes
no one reaches the necessary score, the winner will be the player or team that is in the lead.

2. Don't settle for the starting weapon!
Bearing in mind that in War Mode you already arrive armed in battle, many players leave the loot aside and go for the shootout. But what happens when you need to exchange shots at long range and all you have is a submachine gun? Or when an opponent is running in a zigzag a few feet from you and your only weapon is a sniper?
Don't limit yourself to the starting weapon! In the first moments of the battle, fight only what is necessary and focus on finding weapons for short and long-distance combat
. Assault rifles are always great options for being good at both. Once properly armed, you will be able to select the most efficient weapon for each situation and finish off the chosen targets.

3. Be efficient and lethal
Remember that the War Mode map is an egg. The area is so small that any shot you make will be heard by most players in the match. So, if it is to expose yourself, it is to kill! Choose the best weapon for the target distance and try to get the job done as quickly and efficiently as possible, so you have time to hide or reposition yourself
before other players look in your direction.
4. Stay on the move
Maps in War Mode always involve large open areas, with no vegetation or buildings. For that reason, never stand still
! If you are not behind a wall or tree, the chances of an x8 crosshair pointing towards the middle of your forehead are high.
Always keep the notion of repositioning in mind after exposing your location and avoid running in straight lines (make abrupt stops, zigzags or simply change direction). Also, remember that when you move the camera down, your character lowers his head and becomes a minor target.
Another valuable tip
: when you are stopped looting, rotate the directional wheel in small circles. This will make your character move slightly to the sides without moving away from the loot. Thus, you can continue to equip yourself without becoming a standing target.
5. Choose your fights intelligently
In War Mode, it is very easy to be attracted to the shootings that take place on all sides. For this reason, it is also very easy to enter a vicious cycle of deaths: resurrect, die, kill one, die, resurrect, and so on. Don't get in there!
Play smart. Identify the weapons being fired around you
and make your choices from there. For example, if you hear a sniper being fired near you, the best option is to be as aggressive as possible and shorten the distance to shoot the target more easily.
On the other hand, if the sniper is in your hands and you hear an assault rifle on your side, it is best to step aside and shoot from a more favorable distance for your weapon.
6. Get in the middle of fights
This tip is simple. Whenever possible, get in the middle of ongoing struggles. In addition to finding the location of two or more opponents, the chances of them already being injured are high and you just need to finish the job that the others started. Steal kills, steal points, be a winner. There is no honor in War Mode.
7. Value your lives and your time
Perhaps this is the most important and most technical tip of all: value your lives!
It is not because they are infinite that you should play it carelessly. When you treat each one as if it were the last, you will notice a huge improvement in your performance in War Mode.
Let's dig a little deeper: whenever you die, the respawn
time (time required for a player to resurrect) varies up to a maximum of 30 seconds. After that, you need to jump off the plane and even if you descend at full speed, the minimum time to reach the ground is 19 seconds. Therefore, with each kill, the time you spend out of battle varies between 20 to 49 seconds.
Now think about how many points you fail to earn during that time, every time you die. Remember that you score whenever you knock out or shoot down an opponent, or even when reviving a teammate. Unfortunately, you won't do any of those things while you're dead or parachuting. If you don't value each life, you will spend more time waiting than scoring.

8. Teamwork wins matches
Despite being too chaotic for elaborate strategies, War Mode becomes much easier when pairs or teams play together. A simple warning or coverage from your partner can prevent you from dying and fail to score for several seconds.
In War Mode, the time to revive a knocked out partner is 3 seconds, so don't give your opponents time and finish them as quickly as possible. Remember that you score twice when you knock out and shoot someone. Also, stay close to your team and secure points for reviving your fallen partners.
One last tip to optimize your performance in team matches: if for some reason you are knocked out away from your partners, don't hide and try to die as soon as possible
. There is no point in waiting for your partners, as the chances of them reaching you alive are very small. Die soon, so you head straight for respawn
