PUBG’s most comprehensive recoil control tutorial is right here


It is well known that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) is a strategic first-person shooter game. Unlike traditional FPS games, PUBG has a wider range of activities and more randomness, making it more realistic and strategic. However, as with any FPS game, it is closely related to firearms, gunplay, and recoil control. This game also requires recoil control, and many people have not fully mastered it. So today, I will systematically teach everyone how to better control recoil and gunplay.

1. Mouse Speed

Friends who have played FPS games before should know that mouse speed is directly related to your hand feel. Finding the right mouse speed for yourself can allow you to hit enemies more accurately. At the same time, slower mouse speed can make it easier for you to aim. However, PUBG has a high level of randomness and the map is quite large. Therefore, there are often situations where you need to make large adjustments to your aim, so having a mouse speed that is too slow is also not ideal.

So, how can we adjust the mouse speed that suits us? Here, I will teach you the method:

1. First, open the mouse properties in Windows, then uncheck the “Enhance pointer precision” option in the Pointer Options tab, and set the pointer speed to the middle.

2. Go into the game and try a mouse speed that allows you to easily turn from the front to the back without going past it. (Here, “easily” means it is effortless but won’t go too far.) At the same time, try aiming with the reticle and spraying bullets while easily tracking the position of the driver’s seat. If you can easily do this, it means it suits you. Of course, after you become familiar with the operation, you can gradually lower the mouse speed.

Secondly, it is a misconception that one must hold their breath when using a scope to stabilize the firearm and improve accuracy. While it is true that holding your breath can be effective when using a high magnification scope, it is not necessary when using a low magnification scope. Holding your breath while using a low magnification scope actually makes it more difficult to control the recoil, as it creates a similar effect to using a higher magnification scope, which makes it harder to manage.

Thirdly, it is important not to hold down the shift key continuously. In beginner matches, it is often observed that players rush straight into a certain area by holding down the shift key. However, if an opponent has already spotted them through a sightline to their intended destination, the player rushing in with the shift key held down is at a disadvantage. The opponent will have the advantage of being able to quickly react and shoot at the rushing player, while the rushing player needs to stop, aim, and then shoot back, putting them at a significant disadvantage.

So our correct approach is to sprint in safe areas or where there is no cover, but once we reach a dangerous zone, we should release the Shift key, or even hold down Ctrl to enter a crouched position.

IV. Resetting Recoil with Scope Toggle

When we are in a gunfight behind cover and can’t control the recoil, we can directly toggle the scope off and then on again to reset the recoil of the firearm. In fact, when we are controlling the recoil, it is important to develop a good habit of only firing 10 rounds per scope toggle. After firing those 10 rounds, we can use the scope toggle to reset the recoil and deal a series of compact damage waves.

Fifth, crouching while firing

In the game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, the recoil of firearms is different when shooting in different stances: standing, crouching, and prone. The recoil is highest when standing, followed by crouching, and lowest when prone. While we don’t usually shoot while prone, we frequently use the crouching stance. Therefore, when controlling recoil, it is better to crouch instead of standing. By reducing the recoil of firearms, we can decrease the difficulty of controlling our shots.

Sixth, accessory selection

Many novice players are unsure about whether to use a vertical foregrip or an angled foregrip. Here, I recommend using an angled foregrip for everyone, as long as you follow the previous five points, controlling recoil won’t be too difficult. Although the angled foregrip doesn’t reduce vertical recoil as effectively as the vertical foregrip does, it increases ADS (aim down sight) speed. This means you will be able to aim and shoot faster, allowing you to eliminate opponents more quickly.

Another thing is that it’s best not to equip a suppressor on melee weapons as it greatly affects the handling. However, it’s advisable to have suppressors on long-range weapons, as they can both suppress sound and muzzle flash.
