PUBG Mobile is still a favourite mobile game for many, even though alternatives like Call of Duty have taken lead in some ways. The popularity of PUBG Mobile isn't dying anytime soon as the developers continue to give more and more reasons for its millions of players to stay hooked to the game.

PUBG Mobile has come a long way since its launch and we've seen several new modes in Arcade, from TDM to Payload and more. While these Arcade modes are exciting for short gameplay, the classic matches are still the favourite for strategic action. PUBG Mobile players have their favourite weapons, which divides players within the same team arguing about which gun is better.

PUBG Mobile players are often arguing about AKM vs M416 or Kar98 vs M24 and other weapons. But it is one's personal preference and comfort to use a certain weapon combination that wipes out the enemy. All that matter is, in the end, is getting that rewarding "Chicken Dinner."
