NOW , after you successfully downloaded and installed PUBG for PC or PUBG MOBILE ,you will ask : now how I am going to play ?, I never played this game ? and if you start playing the game randomly, you will get killed thousands of times and you will be bored easily because no one likes to lose right, Don’t worry we’ve got you covered, we will provide in the following paragraph a clear explanation of the Gameplay and the stages of the battle :
After jumping from your plane and arriving to your destination , now you will need to “Loot “ ..what is “Looting” ?
“Looting” means gathering weapons ,All players begin the game with nothing to defend themselves , so you must search buildings and nearby areas for weapons , armors , and healing items ,at the start of every match ,this weapons are distributed around the map ,while some areas are more likely to have better loot ,you never know what you’ll find in any given location ,areas with large quantity of loot are often crowded and dangerous because ancient players almost know
Where to find a lot of weapons , so it is your choice to land in this dangerous areas with a lot quantities of loot or land somewhere save and quite with lower quantities of loot , the loot you obtain throughout the match might affect how you play the game , you only found a shotgun ? ,then focus on short range encounters , found a rifle with x8 scope zoom ?,explore the mountains and pick off players from a distance, early in the game and shortly after looting , a large circle will be placed randomly on the map , this circle will be the new play area for all players , it will reduce the area of the battle ,once inside the circle, the game will continue normally , the area outside the circle is called the “Blue Zone” ,if you remain outside the Blue Zone (outside the circle), your health will slowly drain until you die ,the play area will continue to reduce in phases to make the game even harder ,because it encourages players to keep moving and makes it difficult to stay hidden for too long , of course there is a lot more in PUBG than simply staying within the area ,utilizing the environment around you is essential ,whether that be hiding inside of a building , using trees as a cover , or finding a hilltop to snipe and shoot other players ,vehicles are randomly scattered across every map ,you can find cars, motorcycles, buggies, vans, and more .. each with different capacities, top speeds and durability , on top of that, you can find various water vehicles like boats and jet skis scattered around the edges of the islands, In battle royal , being the last man standing is the ultimate goal, you may not win at first but if you quickly can loot an area, practice and master you favorite weapon, you will land that “number one spot “ in no time.

Difference between PUBG PC and PUBG Mobile:
There is not a big difference between PUBG PC and PUBG Mobile, the gameplay is almost similar in the two games, however there a slight difference in graphics and game designing:
The main difference is that mobile version of PUBG runs on low-end graphics, basically it can run in any phone with average capacities .
In the other hand PUBG PC runs on high-end graphics that give a soothing touch to the gaming experience. The PC version of this battle game is quite fascinating. The graphics of these versions actually make a huge difference. On mobile, one can hardly cross 480p, whereas, the same game is available in high quality – 720p and 1080p.
Apart from basic graphics difference, one major key difference between PUBG Mobile and PUBG PC is designing. The houses designed in PUBG Mobile and PUBG PC are different. In PUBG Mobile, the rooms and doors of houses, as well as the walls of the areas, are pretty normal. However, in the case of PUBG PC, there are some additional walls and doors inside houses. The bigger rooms in PUBG PC Erangel Map are divided into smaller multiple rooms.
Game Updates between PUBG mobile and PUBG PC
Updates for online battle royale are one of the key factors that keep the loyal players playing the game, as well as attract more new players. Both PUBG mobile and PUBG PC have updates released regularly, but the sizes of updates patches are the main difference between PUBG pc vs mobile. With the base game about 1,6GB, an update patch of PUBG mobile normally stands at more than 1GB. In the meantime, an update patch for PUBG PC can be bigger than 10GB, considering the base game has already taken 19GB of your PC memory.
After all these are very small differences, and PUBG PC and PUBG Mobile are both awesome games.
