Overall, the Mk12 is pretty much the same as the Mini 14 and the QBU in terms of stats and power. We could say that the Mk12 is slightly stronger than those 2 because it has all the attachment slots, which make it a little bit more stable when fully attached.

Tips and Tricks on how to use the MK12

Best attachments

The MK12 has all the attachment slots to make it more powerful

Since the MK14 can be equipped with all kinds of attachments, here are the best options for each attachment slot:

  • Scope - x4 scope or bigger: You will be mostly using it for mid to long-range combats, you will want a big scope on it to hit more accurately.
  • Magazine - Extended Mag or Quickdraw Extend Mag: Either of these 2 is fine since most mid to long-range combats are long so the Quickdraw part is unnecessary.
  • Grip - Vertical Grip, Lightweight Grip: You need more stability and less recoil to hit your shots consistently in long-range combats.
  • Muzzle- Silencer, Compensator, Flash Hider: Optimally you would want a Silencer to cover your location, but any of them would be good enough.


While the MK12 is somewhat usable in close-range combats, it is definitely no match for SMGs, Shotguns, or ARs because it doesn't have an auto-fire mode. You need 5 shots in the body or 2 headshots to kill a player within 150 m.

Going prone will help increase the stability and reduce of a weapon with a bipod

Since the recoil of MK12 is not that hard, you can totally land 2 headshots on a standing still player and kill them before they even know. If they are running, fire continuously in front of their path to hit them. Don't fight against Kar98 or M24 players if they already knew your location because you will get headshotted easily.


Here are some tips for you to make the full use of the MK12 PUBG as well as become a better overall sniper.

  • You need to have a good location with a good vision of your surroundings such as on the roof of a building, on a hill, inside a high building, etc.
  • Be patient because your first shot is the most important shot. Your target will be more aware and hide or running around to dodge the shots after that so it will be much harder for you to finish them.
  • Make sure you are fully geared, it is a requirement to play sniper. Try to get at least a big scope or even a Silencer if you can.
  • The MK12 has a tripod so you would want to go Prone whenever you can to increase the stability and reduce the recoil of it.
