There are heaps of PUBG weapons to choose from, and as you can only carry two primary weapons, a pistol, a melee weapon, and a grenade, picking what to keep and what to discard is half the battle. There’s also a lot more to consider when reviewing PUBG’s weapons than how long they take to drop an enemy or how accurate they are. Some rifles might lack some punch, but they more than make up for it in other, less obvious areas like bullet speed, which will mean less bullet drop and travel time. Likewise, some guns might not seem all that good at first, but become the best in their class with the right attachments.
In an effort to make those decisions easier for you, we have assembled this PUBG weapons guide packed with details and tips on every gun in the game. Expect information on where you’ll find a specific firearm, what types of attachments it can carry, the ammo it uses, and the types of engagements it excels at. We’re nothing if not thorough.
PUBG SANHOK WEAPONS
Struggling to find the SCAR-L on Sanhok? In the PUBG new map the SCAR-L has been replaced by the Chinese QBZ95, a modern bullpup assault rifle. This world spawn rifle has a slightly buffed spawn rate so it should be easy to find. Like the SCAR-L, the QBZ95 chambers a 5.56mm round that deals 43 damage per hit and carries 30 rounds in a standard magazine, which can be upped to 40 with the extended magazine attachment.
The QBZ is remarkably similar to the SCAR-L in that both deal the same amount of damage and can carry a wide variety of attachments, however they do differ in two ways: the QBZ95 takes much longer reload, but will down quicker thanks to its slightly higher rate of fire.
This DMR might lack damage owing to the 5.56 rounds it chambers, but it makes for it with exceptional muzzle velocity, a high rate of fire, and a bipod that nearly eliminates recoil when deployed. Sure, you’ll need to put a few rounds into a target before they drop, but the minimal travel time makes landing hits much easier, especially over long distances.
The QBU can take muzzle, sight, and magazine attachments, making it reasonably modifiable for a DMR. Like the Mini 14, the QBU can stand in for an assault rifle if the RNG has been particularly cruel to you, but where it really excels is between medium and long-range firefights. 5.56 rounds are also very common across Sanhok, ensuring you’ll always have a good supply of ammo.
