Snipers and DMR

Sniper rifles and DMR ( Designated Marksman Rifle ) are useful weapons in long range combat . If you add a telescopic sight, you will be able to shoot other players lethally, unseen or in relative safety.

The sniper and DMR weapons have several differences, but the main one is the bullet feed system Snipers are bolted, meaning you need to take your eyes off the crosshairs to trigger the next bullet. DRMs are semi-automatic and carry the bullet without the player’s action, allowing you to keep your eyes on the sight .

Winchester Model 1894

Another vintage shotgun to set off your enemies in a classic way. It’s quite powerful and a better rate of fire is possible than the Kar98 because of its lever. However, the bullet is slightly less powerful and takes longer to reload, even with extras. With the patch for Season 5 (in the PC and Console version) Winchester won a crosshair 2.7 that is impossible to remove but that completely changed the weapon, making it a very effective sniper, perfect for quickscopes in the first rounds of the match. A real revival. This weapon is now exclusive to Miramar.

Karabiner 98 Kurz

This weapon vintage has a strong shot and is common appear in loot all over the pitch. With the right extras, it can be very effective. However, it is only possible to reload bullet by bullet and, after each shot, it is necessary to take your eyes off the crosshairs as it is a bolt-on weapon. This can be dangerous if you don’t shoot down your enemies at first. It is also the only sniper that allows you to aim effectively with the original iron sights.

M24

This powerful weapon uses the same caliber (7.62.mm) as the K98, AKM, Groza and others. More stable and faster than the K98, it can shoot at greater distances without wasting so much time reloading. If you get a larger loader, your enemies will tremble with fear. Rating: 8

AWM

Monstrous, this shotgun can make you the king of the match. Using a type of bullet specially crafted for her, it is PUBG’s deadliest weapon in the long range. Even if your opponent is equipped with a level 3 helmet and vest, it only takes two shots to send him to hell. Unfortunately, this weapon appears only in crates and with only 20 bullets. If you’re lucky enough to get one, make those bullets worthwhile.

SKS

Soviet semi-automatic technology, this weapon is very versatile, capable of long-range shooting with efficiency and with a charger and power above average. With the right extras, you can increase your capacity up to 20 shots per loader and greatly improve your stability. In addition, it is a more common weapon that appears on the playing field and not just in crates.

Grade: 7

M14 EBR

Capable of automatic shooting and slightly more powerful than the SKS, the M14 has great impact power. Unfortunately, it is a rare weapon that appears only in crates. Auto mode may be useful in close combat, but its high caliber makes it very recoil in origin.

SLR

A very precise weapon, capable of more damage than the SKS, with slightly more recoil, the SLR is easy to change as it is possible to use different extras for AR as for sniper rifles.

Mini 14

A weapon for all situations, the Mini 14 is difficult to master, but lethal in the right hands. Its caliber is 5.56mm, low for sniper guns, but the initial speed of the bullet pays off. It is a very common weapon, so there is no need to risk your life to get one from a box. It is only semi-automatic, so the shooting speed depends on your trigger finger (or mouse button). With the right extras, it is possible to extend the magazine up to 30 bullets.

Grade: 6

QBU

It exists only in Sanhok. The QBU is a semi-automatic weapon that replaces the Mini 14 on this map. Slightly does more damage. As it has an original tripod, whenever using the lying position the recoil is minimal, making it a perfect weapon for long shots in succession, very effective for chasing an enemy, despite the small caliber.

VSS

This sniper weapon is a difficult weapon to master, but there are situations in which it is absolutely lethal. Has telescopic sight and silencer already installed, no need to pick up extras. It is very difficult to hear shots due to the subsonic caliber and silencer. Unfortunately, this slows the bullet. It is a weapon designed to eliminate discreetly unprepared players. The most effective way to use this weapon is with quick bursts of 3 to 5 shots.

Grade: 6

Assault Rifles

Assault Rifles are weapons designed for long and medium range combat . They can fire on automatic fire, dealing damage quickly.

G36C

For now only available on the map Vikendi (PC version) the G36 is a SCAR-like assault rifle with a slightly higher rate of fire. It has not shown to have great precision in long shots, being more indicated for short and medium distance. Automatic fire has a high recoil, so keep your bursts short.

Grade: 6

SCAR-L

A very stable weapon, with good shot in medium and even long distance and with an adequate sight. The recoil is minimal for an automatic weapon, which means you can get groups of shots close together. This improves your accuracy. It is not a powerful weapon. In automatic mode, it is very useful in a short distance.

Grade: 6

QBZ

QBZ replaces SCAR on Sanhok map. It’s very versatile, causing slightly more damage (although some players say they don’t notice a difference) and with some recoil. With the right extras is a weapon that fulfills its role well. There is a lot on the map.

M416

Probably PUBG’s most versatile weapon and a favorite with many players . Its automatic fire is super fast, which makes it very effective in close-range combat, but it is very accurate in medium and long distance as well. It has space for five extra accessories. If you can apply them all, this weapon becomes very manageable and accurate.

M16A4

It uses the same ammunition as the SCAR and M416, so it doesn’t do much more damage. However, it is much more accurate than the previous two over long distances. It has no automatic mode, only burst mode. This mode is an ultra fast 5-shot burst. The stability of this mode is very poor, so limit it to short distances. The weapon allows no extras to improve stability, further compromising its accuracy in burst mode.

Grade: 7

AKM

This powerful shotgun can fulfill several roles. Very close to the enemy is devastating. In medium and long distance, it is accurate. This is largely due to its caliber. Unfortunately, all this extra power also makes your stability very bad. It takes a lot of training to master.

Rating: 5

GROZA

Probably the best PUBG automatic rifle . Powerful, with a brutal and very stable rate of fire, it allows you to fill your enemies with lead before they even touch the trigger. Unfortunately, it is a weapon that exists only in boxes, being very rare. It also allows few extras, including limiting the type of aim.

Grade: 9

AUG 3

The AUG is a weapon only available in a box, with a 5.56mm caliber and allows to carry 5 extras. This improves the capacity of the magazine, the accuracy and allows the use of all types of sights. Without any extras it is an extremely accurate weapon, but with some vertical recoil, which limits its use in automatic over long distances.

Rating: 8

Beryl M762

Beryl uses the same caliber as AKM, causing less damage per shot, but compensating with a higher cadence. It is quite easy to lose control of this weapon due to the recoil, but you can use more extras to control this problem. The gun has rails, allowing for more extras than AKM.

Grade: 7

Mk47 Mutant

Ak47 half Hk416 half is a good way to describe this weapon. It has all the power of AKM with better accuracy and a really nice two-shot blast in the medium distance. You can also use all the extras for assault rifles by removing the stock. It is a good weapon for disciplined snipers but the lack of automatic makes it difficult to use over short distances.

Rating: 8

Submachine guns

Submachine guns are weapons with a high rate of fire and usually little precision. They are for medium to short distances , where, to win, you have to be fast and shoot a large amount of bullets, in an instinctive shot.

Weapon Damage Caliber Shooting Mode Loader Available

MP5K (New)

A classic from the world of shooting games now in PUBG. The MP5K replaces Vector only on the Vikendi map, with slightly more damage and a larger charger. However, it has a lower rate of fire. You can use all possible extras, making the weapon very effective over short and medium distances. The recoil is minimal, even for a 900RPM shot rate.

Bison

Only available in Vikendi and Erangel, Bison is a good addition to the PUBG arsenal. It causes the same damage as UMP and has a slightly lower cadence which helps its stability. The magazine is large, allowing for longer firing changes. It only allows tips and sights as extras, but it is relatively easy to control.

Rating: 8

Micro Uzi

Despite being the submachine gun that does the least damage, it makes up for it with an enormous rate of fire. In milliseconds it is possible to drop an entire charger in the face of another player, as long as he is very close. It exists in large quantities on the playing field. Unfortunately, it is impossible to place a crosshair on it, but it pays to use the extra stock.

Grade: 7

UMP45

This submachine gun is more accurate and powerful than the Micro Uzi at longer distances and more loader capacity. It is very stable, even without extras. However, there are players who prefer Micro Uzi’s faster rate of fire. Overall, it is a great weapon for close quarters combat, but with some training it is possible to get more long range shots.

Rating: 8

Vector

Highly manageable, with a powerful caliber and high rate of fire, the Vector is an effective weapon in close combat. It is possible to use all kinds of extras, further improving its stability. It has a big disadvantage in the capacity of the magazine, because even with the extras, it can carry a maximum of 24 bullets. Combining this with the high rate of fire, you can quickly run out of ammunition.

Rating: 8

Tommy gun

A classic weapon that is not easy to control . Despite being the submachine gun that causes the most damage and carrying few extras, it is very difficult to control the recoil, making the weapon unstable. However, the huge charger allows for prolonged contact over short distances so the damage it causes is quite effective.

Grade: 6

Shotguns

This type of weapon is very common in game. They are very effective in short distance, due to their great power , but are relatively slow to recharge.

Weapon Damage Loader Effective Distance Extras Available
S686 25 per lead 2 10 to 30 meters 2 All Maps
S1897 25 per lead 5th 50 meters 2 All Maps
S12K 22 per lead 5th 10 to 30 meters 3 All Maps
Sawed off 25 per lead 2 10 meters AT Miramar / Sanhok
DBS 25 by Lead 12 50 meters 1 Drop

DBS

An automatic shotgun with a capacity of 14 cartridges without reloading. The short distance is devastating. An opponent needs at least one tier 3 vest to survive a point-blank shot. Although it can couple the holographic, optronic, 2x and 6x sights, the damage done after 50 meters is minimal. What’s more, it’s only available in drop, which doesn’t make much sense.

Grade: 6

S1897

This shotgun can carry 5 cartridges. Each of these cartridges carries 9 pellets that deal 25 damage each. This makes this weapon a real cannon . In unprotected enemies, death is practically certain with a single shot. Unfortunately, you need to refill the cartridges one by one and the effective distance is no more than 50 meters.

S686

A classic hunting weapon, with only two barrels and, of course, only two bullets. However, it is very powerful and even faster to recharge than the S1897. It is highly effective in interiors. As the double sinker is very powerful, it compensates for the lack of ammunition.

S12K

PUBG’s only semi-automatic shotgun, the S12K can carry extras just like an assault rifle, but much more powerful. With the right extras, you can use more cartridges in the magazine, making it quite fearsome. However, after 25 to 30 meters, it is very difficult to hit the target effectively.

Sawed off

This shotgun is exclusive to the Miramar and Sanhok maps. It takes the place of a pistol. It is very powerful, but only results in a very short distance.

Special Weapons

Special weapons for special situations.

M249 44 100 5.56 mm 1 Self Drop
Beast 105 1 AT AT All Maps
DP 28 N / A 47 7.62 mm 1 Self All Maps except Vikendi

M249

A powerful machine gun with an effective rate of fire and little recoil, the M249 is only for experienced players. Powered by a massive magazine, it can deliver dozens of bullets to the target quickly and is useful both in short and long distance. Unfortunately, the charger takes almost 7 seconds to change and can only apply sights as an extra. It also exists only in crates.

Beast

This type of weapon is useful for eliminating enemies without being heard. However, you need to be sure that your shot will result in instant death.

DP28

This Soviet machine gun can be found in the open world. There is still no data on the damage it causes, but it must be located in the AKM area (as they use the same caliber). It has a high capacity charger that takes a long time to recharge and a relatively slow rate of fire. This allows little recoil and a lot of maneuverability for a very powerful weapon.

Grade: 7

Pistols

Short weapons, mostly used in desperate melee fights at the beginning of each match. We rarely see players reaching the end of the game using pistols because of their limitations. They are simply used while there is nothing better.

P18C 19 Semi / Auto 17 9 mm All Maps

Desert Eagle 62 Semi 7th .45 ACP All Maps

Desert Eagle

The pistol that deals the most damage in the game is a real jumbo. Greater than the damage it causes, only the recoil of each shot. It only takes two shots to detonate a level 3 helmet, but it takes a lot of skill to master that kick. The 7-shot magazine also doesn’t help much. However, it is a cool weapon to use in the first few moments of the match.

Rating: 8

P18C

The only pistol that fires in PUBG automatic, its caliber causes little damage, but makes up for it with a large magazine.

Grade: 7

P92

A modest weapon, capable of good shots, depending on the skill of the player.

Rating: 5

P1911

Powerful and iconic, the 1911 fires a very powerful bullet, capable of detonating enemies even with a vest and helmet. However, it has a small charger and a very strong recoil.

Grade: 7

R1895

A real wrist cannon, this massive revolver can do a lot of damage thanks to its caliber. Despite this, the setback is minimal. It takes time to reload.

Rating: 8

R45

Only available on the map of Sanhok, Miramar and Vikendi. Although smaller in size than the R1895, it can do more damage, load faster and have better handling.

Rating: 8

Skorpion

A pistol capable of automatic and semi-shooting, perfectly suited for the start of the match in close range clashes. Extra capacity butt, grip, silencer, sight and loader can be used as an extra. Useful in the first few moments of a bloody match.

Extra Accessories

These accessories are of great help to all types of weaponry, although some weapons accept few extra accessories. They can improve weapon stability, ammo, reload speed, aim, and even help hide your position. All values ​​in this list are without extras.

Throwing Explosives

Explosive weaponry that can be used behind cover or to surprise your enemy.

Fragmentation Grenade

There is no great secret in this type of weaponry. Pull the bolt, let it warm up for a few seconds and toss it as a gift to your enemies. Very useful in tight spaces, but also fun outside.

Stun Grenade (Stun)

Also called Flashbang , it serves to disorient your enemies causing an intense flash and a deafening noise. Be careful when casting or the spell can turn against the sorcerer.

Smoke Grenade

Useful as you want to hide your moves from the enemy. Don’t forget to let the smoke spread for a few seconds before moving.

Molotov cocktail

A very explosive drink. Where it falls, the zone catches fire and this can isolate its enemies or imprison them. Use with caution.

Nail Trap or “Miguelitos”

This trap is used to puncture the tires of enemy cars. Just place it where you want, but be careful as it cannot be collected again. It just punctures the tires, it doesn’t damage the car. It is available on all maps.

Melee

Items of last resort used in a situation of pure survival or as a distraction. It is common at the beginning of each match to use this type of weaponry while everyone is unarmed. It is better than using your own hands, but it does not hit a good firearm. From Season 5 onwards it is possible to throw melee weapons, dealing very high damage relatively quietly.

Melee weapons are similar to each other, apart from the frying pan . This melee (and haute cuisine) weapon can eliminate an unprotected enemy with two blows to the body and one to the head. In addition, it slightly protects the player from shooting, acting as a shield. It is the most popular melee weapon in the game.

Final Tips

All players want the best weapons and the best extra accessories. But at PUBG, your equipment depends on what you find on the playing field. It won’t always be easy to get an AWM with a long range scope, so learn how to use all weapons , trading when you find something better.

In addition to luck, PUBG needs preparation . Learn the best loot locations in Erangel and Miramar and follow some simple strategies to improve your skills .
