In an online shooter game like PUBG Mobile in which you only have limited ability to control your character, fast reaction speed or control is vital. And to improve that, having a Gyroscope active is a must - in this article, we would give you some of the best PUBG Mobile Gyro tips.

1 - Why is Gyroscope important?

Due to the lack of a keyboard and mouse, turning around and aiming in PUBG Mobile is not nearly as easy as that of a normal FPS game. With gyroscope active, this problem is resolved, as you would be able to aim around by tilting your phone, using the device’s gyroscopic sensors to transfer the movement into game actions. Because of this, nearly every pro players use them to aim instead of swiping the screen with their thumb.

Due to its nature of being a physical action that uses the device instead of tapping the screen, the gyroscope is not for everyone. If you managed to use it, however, you would get a big advantage over non-gyro players, with your aiming getting more accurate and reaction speed quicken. One of your fingers would be free to do any other action, enabling more tactical gameplays.

2 - How to turn on the Gyroscope and Adjust the sensitivity settings?

Turn on Gyroscope

Get to the settings menu in the bottom right corner and navigate to the Gyroscope settings in Basics. There are 2 options for turning on Gyroscope, Always On and Scope On. The first one would set your Gyroscope to active all the time, while the second would only turn it on when the scope of your gun is open. Overall, if you are going to transition from non-gyro to gyro, using the Scope On option might be easier, as you would be able to know exactly when it would be active and tilt your phone. Going with always-on right away would be pretty hard, but if you are willing to risk it and practice, it might be a good idea.

Adjust Gyroscope sensitivity

To modify your Gyroscope's sensitivity settings, you must navigate to the Sensitivity section in the settings and scroll down. Afterward, you would find the various sliders for specific Gyroscope sensitivity. These things control pretty much every option, from Red Dot, Aim Assist, Holographic to the 2x - 8x scopes. You can even set a different sensitivity setting of no-scope for third-person and first-person modes.

Which sensitivity to set?

You definitely can adjust the gyroscope settings after a pro player's, however, it is best to just test out the default option first to see if it stick. You can even try to create your own settings - with the main principle being: the higher the scope is, the lower your sensitivity should be. 8x scope should have like 10 or 15 sensitivity while normal no scope should be maximum.

Recoil control using Gyroscope

In a high sensitivity setting, your recoil control would get better in exchange for the reduction in weapon accuracy. Because of this, you'll need to figure out your playstyle to set the sensitivity accordingly. If you prefer a close encounter with hip-firing, set the sensitivity to high to control all the recoils from spamming. On the other hand, if your forte is mid-range fights with accurate sprays, getting the sensitivity low for better accuracy would be better. For bolt action sniper rifles, however, just lower the sensitivity, as you need every bit of accuracy you could get.

How to practice Gyroscope

To control recoil using Gyro, you would need to get a good grip on your phone to avoid any kind of shakiness while spraying. When practicing, try to start with the base M416 and aim for close and far moving targets using different scopes, as this gun is probably the easiest to recoil control. 6x is the best scope to go with for most professionals due to its versatility and an easy to use rangefinder.
