How to Lean in PUBG Mobile

Can't figure out how to use the lean option in PUBG Mobile? Then follow this step-by-step guide and learn how to do it right.

Although the mobile version of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds is limited in terms of controls, the new updates keep bringing new mechanics. Now, players can lean and shoot at the same time.

However, this feature is not activated by default in PUBG Mobile, so you need to activate it first. Afterward, you can use special buttons to lean either left or right when aiming at your enemies.

Step 1: Enable Lean Options

Before using the lean option, you need to go to the Settings menu in PUBG Mobile and follow these steps:

  1. Enable the Peek and Fire option
  2. Enable the Peek and Open Scope option
  3. Select one of the two Peek options: tap or hold

You can find all these options under the Gyroscope feature in the Settings menu.

The first option will let you lean and fire at the same time, the second one will let you lean and look through your scope, and the last option depends on your preference, whether you like to tap or hold buttons while leaning on your mobile device.

Step 2: Use Lean Buttons

After you activate the lean options in your game's menu, you will see the two new buttons on the left side of your screen. You can tap or hold these buttons for your character to either lean left or right.

You can also rearrange the position of the buttons and set them to any part of the screen by holding and moving.
