Below we will tell you about all the weapons currently available in Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds . You will learn about the firing modes, the used projectiles, possible modules that enhance the weapon. With the information below, you will increase your chances of winning!

Pistols

Pistols in Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds are mostly useful as a starting weapon when you can’t find anything else, or if it’s in accessible locations. But there are still interesting specimens. For example, the P18C’s fully automatic firing mode makes it a deadly weapon at close range, while a precision shot to the head with a revolver can kill an enemy with almost one shot.

P18C

Ammunition : 9mm rounds.

Firing modes : semi-automatic and automatic.

Pistol with the lowest damage, but a high rate of fire. The base magazine holds 17 rounds. It takes three headshots or six chest hits to kill an enemy without helmet or armor, respectively.

Modules : extended and fast charging clips, silencer and extended fast charging clips.

P92

Ammunition : 9mm rounds.

Shooting modes : semi-automatic.

A pistol with medium damage and the same rate of fire. The base clip holds 15 rounds. To kill an enemy, you need to make two shots to the head or four to the torso, provided that he is not wearing armor or a helmet.

Modules : extended and fast charging clips, silencer and extended fast charging clips.

P1911

Ammunition : .45 ammo.

Shooting modes : semi-automatic.

A pistol with medium damage and high rate of fire. The base clip holds 7 rounds. To kill an enemy, you need to make two shots to the head or three in the torso, provided that he is not wearing armor or a helmet.

P1911

Modules : extended and fast charging clips, silencer and extended fast charging clips.

R1895

Ammunition : 7.62mm rounds.

Shooting modes : semi-automatic.

A pistol with huge damage and low rate of fire. The base clip holds seven rounds. To kill an enemy, you need to make one headshot or three in the torso, provided that he is not wearing armor or a helmet.

R1895

Modules : muffler.

Shotguns

It is a weapon with tremendous damage at close range, which allows you to kill even an armored enemy with a direct shot near. The damage stat is based on nine pellets in each round that hits the enemy. The peculiarity of using weapons can be called the fact that you rarely have time for the second shot, so you need to kill the enemy first.

S686

Ammunition : 12 gauge.

Double-barreled shotgun with extremely high damage at close range and a clip capacity of two rounds. Kills opponents, regardless of the type of armor, if all nine shots hit the torso or head.

Modules : chokes and cartridge belts.

S1897

Ammunition : 12 gauge.

A pump-action shotgun with extremely high damage at close range and a five-round clip. Kills opponents, regardless of the type of armor, if all nine fractions (on the body or head) fly into it.

S1897

Modules : chokes and cartridge belts.

S12K

Ammunition : 12 gauge.

Semi-automatic shotgun with huge damage at close range and a clip capacity of nine rounds. Kills opponents, regardless of the type of armor, if all nine fractions (on the body or head) fly into it.

S12K

Modules : extended and quick-charging clips, silencer, extended fast-charging clips and holographic sight.

We recommend:

From all that has been proposed, we would recommend that you choose the S686 double-barreled gun, add chokes to it, which will allow most of the pellets to hit the enemy located at a distance of up to 12 meters. The fact that you can fire two shots almost at the same time means that you have the opportunity to kill any enemy at a time, regardless of armor and distance (of course, if it is still relatively close range).

Submachine guns

Submachine guns are a good alternative to the shotgun when it comes to close range gunfights. At the same time, the UMP-9 allows you to keep the enemy at medium range with the added double or quadruple sight.

MICRO UZI (Micro Uzi)

Ammunition : 9mm rounds.

Firing modes : semi-automatic and fully automatic.

Compact submachine gun with short firing range, highest rate of fire and a starting clip with a capacity of 25 rounds. To kill an enemy, you will need to shoot twice in the head or five times in the torso, provided that he is not wearing armor or a helmet.

Micro Uzi

Modules : extended and quick-charging clips, silencer, butt for “Micro Uzi”, extended fast-charging clip, flame arrester and compensator.

UMP-9

Ammunition : 9mm rounds.

Firing modes : semi-automatic, fully automatic and short burst.

Short and medium range submachine gun with the lowest rate of fire compared to other submachine guns and a starting clip with a capacity of 30 rounds. To kill an enemy, you need to shoot twice in the head or three times in the torso, provided that he is not wearing armor or a helmet.

Firing modes : semi-automatic, fully automatic and short burst.

A short-range submachine gun with a higher rate of fire and controlled recoil, but a very small clip capacity of 13 rounds. To kill an enemy, you need to shoot twice in the head or four times in the torso, provided that he is not wearing armor or a helmet.

Modules : extended and quick-loading clips, silencer, tactical stock, extended fast-charging clip, flame arrester, compensator, holographic sight, vertical forearm, collimator sight, sight with 2x magnification.

We recommend:

The complete and modified Vector should help you win any battle. It has a high rate of fire and unsurpassed accuracy when shooting at close range, which will destroy any opponent with an assault rifle. But still beware of whoever has a shotgun!

We recommend:

Unfortunately, there is no clear leader in this category, so which rifle is more comfortable for you depends on your preferred playstyle, but also what modules are found along the way. The fully equipped SCAR-L provides high accuracy at medium ranges when fired in fully automatic mode, while the Kalashnikov assault rifle or M16 can act as a decent medium to long range weapon with the right scope.

Sniper rifles

Sniper rifles provide the best combination of range and power, but have limited clip size and low rate of fire. However, all the disadvantages are balanced by the ability to accurately shoot at long distances and inflict huge damage per shot. At the same time, if you decide to use a rifle, you must act as accurately as possible – shots from it attract the attention of all opponents nearby and give out your position.

VSS “Vintorez”
