Combat in PUBG Mobile is as good as in the original game, so it requires a lot of attention and vigilance. The right type of weapon in the given situation may save your character's life and ultimately win you the chicken dinner.

If you want to know which seven weapons in no particular order are the best in PUBG Mobile, then follow this quick guide for all the info you need.

The most well-known assault rifle in PUBG Mobile is the Kalashnikov. It has two fire modes: semi-auto for close range, and full auto for long-range combat. You can attach a scope to it and increase the magazine for a complete tour de force.

The AKM also has the highest damage amongst all other assault rifles in the game, and at the same time, it has a relatively good accuracy.

  • Ammo: 7.62
  • Cap: 30
  • Power: 42
  • Range: 60
  • Stability: 34
  • Rate: 61


The main difference between the AKM and the M16 is that the latter one is far more accurate and efficient at long-range combat. But it can be quite effective at close combat, too.

You can switch to burst fire mode and leave no chance to the enemy players due to its high fire rate.

  • Ammo: 5.62
  • Cap: 30
  • Power: 37
  • Range: 62
  • Stability: 28
  • Rate: 81


What assault rifles can't do, sniper rifles can. Actually, combining these two is the best option you will ever have. If you can't put down an enemy in one shot with a sniper rifle (which is highly doubtful if you'll be using the AWM, with its incredibly high damage), you can always finish the job with an AKM or M16.

The only drawback is that you won't be able to find it on the ground, so wait for the air drop.

  • Ammo: .300
  • Cap: 5
  • Power: 100
  • Range: 100
  • Stability: 34
  • Rate: 6


The SKS is definitely not your usual sniper rifle, but it is something between the sniper and the assault rifle. This means that it can also be effectively used in close- and mid-range combat.

It is not as powerful as the AWM in terms of damage, but it possesses high accuracy and good stability.

  • Ammo: 7.62
  • Cap: 10
  • Power: 50
  • Range: 64
  • Stability: 48
  • Rate: 32

Tommy Gun

SMGs are great only in close combat due to their extremely high fire rate and low recoil. However, you should never opt for an SMG instead of an assault rifle, which is by far the best type of weapon in the game.

But if you happen to find a Tommy Gun, then make it your backup weapon in case you have low ammo on your assault rifle.

  • Ammo: .45
  • Cap: 100
  • Power: 35
  • Range: 46
  • Stability: 31
  • Rate: 100


If for some reason you cannot find the Tommy Gun, then try to look out for the UMP9 submachine gun. It is the second-most powerful SMG after the Tommy Gun, so you will have no trouble shredding your opponents to pieces.

Since this model has minimum recoil, you can safely attach a silencer to it and kill everyone from ambushes.

  • Ammo: 9 mm
  • Cap: 30
  • Power: 30
  • Range: 30
  • Stability: 31
  • Rate: 62


Here's arguably the only really good shotgun in the game. You will actually use shotguns only inside the houses, as they are completely useless otherwise. But if you have the S12K, then a close-quarter shot will insta-kill your opponents.

Also, it has a super fast fire rate for a shotgun, the fastest in the game to be exact. So don't leave one behind if you find it on the ground.

  • Ammo: 12 G
  • Cap: 5
  • Power: 92
  • Range: 9
  • Stability: 86
  • Rate: 15
