[Top 3] PUBG Best Gyro Sensitivity Settings (Used By Pros)

PUBG Thumb Sport

Some say that gyro aiming is the future of competitive shooter gaming. Others haven’t heard of it at all. In this article, let’s find out about how gyro aiming works, why it is important, and how it can improve your gaming in PUBG Mobile. Let’s dig in! 


Gyro Aiming: How It Works


Gyro aiming refers to controlling the crosshair on screen with the movement of the device in your hand. By tilting the smartphone (or the controller) left, right, up, and down, you are able to aim in game. 

It is much more intuitive to use gyro aiming, instead of using the virtual or real joysticks on your screen (or controller). You still use sticks for camera movement, but it gives you more precision while aiming. You just have to tilt the device slightly in the desired direction to make the cursor move a little. It also helps a lot to control recoil. 

By the way, Nintendo, Steam, and Playstation 4 controllers also have this feature. Microsoft’s Xbox controller does not.  


In general, there are certain advantages to gyro aiming:


Recoil control: It is much easier with the gyroscope, either when spraying at long ranges or in close quarter combat as well. 

Better movements: Gyro aiming helps you stay on target while strafing or moving quickly. 

Aim transfers: Switching quickly between targets. If you have multiple targets, you can engage them much better with gyro aiming. 

Aim tracing on moving targets: Adjust settings to make it easier to hit vehicles 


Of course, there is a downside to any medal. Here are some disadvantages: 


Skill development: With any new skill, practice is the key. It will certainly take a while to master gyro aiming. So you have to be convinced to pull it through and to be dedicated even in the face of frustration.

Gyro delay / lag: If your smartphone's gyro-technology is well-paid, you shouldn't have too much trouble. However, with cheaper smartphones, you cannot expect the same quality of technology as with the expensive ones. This can lead to performance losses.


So in order to get the most out of this technology, you need to work on your sensitivity settings. 


Finding the Right Gyro Sensitivity Settings


If you haven’t checked your PUBG Mobile settings yet, now is the time! You can make changes to the camera sensitivity, the ADS sensitivity (which refers to aim-down-sight), the gyroscope in particular, and the ADS gyroscope. Be aware that you have to activate the gyro function before:  >Controls >Advanced Controls >Gyroscope >Always On.

Now you can adjust the gyroscope sensitivity. When adjusting settings, be aware that there is a difference between iPhone and Android phones, as well as a difference between a smartphone and a tablet. There are also changes after every new PUBG update, which might have an influence on your specific settings.

The more you are aware of those details, the better you can adjust. After all, with little effort, you really can improve your edge. So in order to get started, it might be smart to learn from the pros. Let’s take a look.
