How To Increase Rank In PUBG Mobile
6 Tips to increase your rank in PUBG Mobile
Most of you must be wondering what you can do and how exactly you can work towards improving your rank. Following are tips you can follow to increase you rank as fast as possible on PUBG Mobile.
Playerunknown’s Battle Grounds (PUBG) Mobile has become a huge hit amongst mobile phone gamers. The online Battle Royale game allows players to be ranked on different leader boards and players can compare their ranks with friends who also play PUBG Mobile. The rankings are classified in the form of tiers starting from bronze, silver, gold, platinum, diamond and so on. On each tier the player has to progress through five levels starting from 5 to 1 as your rating increases.
The player earns the ranks based on the total ratings she/he earns playing PUBG Mobile. The ratings are given for survival, kills, support etc. A different rank is allotted to the player for every game mode. A player will be ranked in each category separately based on his performance in solo, duo or squad mode and whether he is playing the game in Third Person Perspective (TPP) or First Person Perspective (FPP).
The rank that is displayed to your friends is the highest rank you have reached in any one form of the game. Say you rank as Silver 5 in FPP solo mode and rank as Gold 3 on TPP squad mode. The rank your friends will be able to see you as will be Gold 3 as it is your best across all game modes.
1. Decide which game mode you like the most and concentrate on increasing your rank in the preferred game mode
Since the rank displayed against your profile will be your best among all game modes, pick a mode you enjoy the most and watch your rank go up faster. If you’re used to playing different game modes randomly, you’ll see that you play for the entire day but still don’t see your rank increase.
2. It’s more important to survive for longer than it is to rack up kills
Your kill rating and your survival rating are the factors taken into account when you’re given a rank. However, it’s important to know that the kill rating only makes up about 20 per cent of the total points and a major chunk is made up by the the survival rating. So, it’s important to make it to the top 10 survivors even if you have fewer kills. You will score better if you survive to the top 10 and have only 3 kills then you would have if you died 50th and had 15 kills. Basically, play conservative and don’t go for more kills than necessary.
3. Always pick the safe zone over a kill
This is an extension of the previous point. Often, you’ll face a situation in the game where you’d be rushing towards the shrinking zone and spot someone running in front of you who is unaware of your presence. Typically, you’d wait and try killing the other player first before you get in the safe zone, right? Wrong! The simplest thing to do is avoid a confrontation, stay out of your enemy’s radar and try and make it to the safe zone as quickly as possible.
4. Damage is important
Support is an important criteria which is also taken in account when calculating the total survival rating. Most of the players are unaware on how to get a solid support ranking in game. Your support ranking increases proportionally with how much your character has healed in the game. So it is important to make sure you take some damage and heal back to full health frequently as it will help you with a good overall survival rating. If you haven’t seen many gun battles in game for a while you can take damage by falling from heights or being outside the zone and heal back with the help of bandages and painkillers.
5. Ratings Only from Classic mode games are considered
PUBG Mobile offers you two game modes to choose from. You can either chose to play the game in Arcade mode or Classic mode. If you spend most of your time playing Arcade mode games your ranking will not change. Try playing Classic mode games as much as you can as the ratings you gain in this game mode will be considered to calculate your rank. It is also advisable to play a game of Arcade game before you get into a Classic game as this helps you warm up.
6. Play the New map Sonhok as much as possible when it’s out
The Sonhok map which has been debuted on PC and Xbox versions of PUBG, will make its debut on PUBG Mobile sometime next week. This is a smaller map, only one quarter in size, compared to the conventional PUBG maps. Also, because the map is smaller, the time each game takes is shorter. A full game on Sonhok on the beta version of PUBG Mobile 0.8.0 takes approximately 25 minutes and a game on the conventional maps take about 35 minutes. You’ll be able to play more matches on Sonhok over an hour or two than on the other two maps. This will help you gain the same ratings each match but will need you to spend 10 minutes less on each game.
