Team IND releases its BGMI roster

Team IND dissolves its BGMI roster consisting of Snax, Daljit, and others

In a shocking turn of events, Team IND, aka Team Insidious, the popular Indian esports organization bid farewell to their BGMI roster. The announcement was made through the social media channels of Team IND.

In the farewell post, the management stated that parting ways was a difficult decision. But the players on the BGMI roster will, in memory, continue to be an integral part of Team IND’s history. They also said that this decision was taken, keeping the interests of the organization and the players in mind. They wished the players good luck in their future endeavors.

Team IND BGMI roster

Kratos (Samir Choubey)

Trance (Kaustubh Walia)

Snax (Raj Varma)

Daljitsk (Daljit Singh)

Slayer (Kanishk Shah)

Attanki (Randeep Singh Bhullar)

It is unknown whether the roster will stay together as a team or disband as the players have made no official announcement.

Team IND has been one of the most renowned and well-liked teams in BGMI esports. The organization has been competing since the inception of PUBG Mobile esports and has enjoyed some success. During its golden phase in 2019, the team finished second in the PMCO: India Spring Split.

Back then, the team included star player Sc0utOP as well. The lineup of Trance, Kratos, ScoutOP, and Daljitsk, along with Team SouL, became the first representatives of India at a global PUBG Mobile event – PMCO: Global Finals Spring 2019: Berlin.

Team IND is also the only Indian organization to represent the country in all three PUBG Mobile Global events where Indian teams had an allocation. The team has played in the PMCO: Global Finals Spring & Fall 2019 (Berlin and Malaysia) and the PUBG Mobile World League 2020.

Throughout the changes in the lineup and the departure of ScoutOP, Kratos and Trance remained the team’s pillars. Kratos led the squad by being a top-notch in-game leader. The addition of star players like Slayer and Snax in 2019 further boosted the team’s strength as they continued to win many minor tournaments.

After completing the PMWL: 2020, where the team finished 9th, Daljitsk, who had left the team sometime in 2019, rejoined the squad. Attanki, one of the stars of Team Celtz, also joined in late 2020, adding to the gun power. The squad stayed united during the PUBG Mobile ban in India. After the eventual release of BGMI, they won the first official event – The Launch Party.

The sudden release of the roster was not expected and came as a surprise to the BGMI esports followers. Earlier last month, the organization also released its COD Mobile roster, which was doing quite well. GodLike Esports later acquired the COD Mobile roster.

It would be interesting to see which organization acquires Team IND’s BGMI roster. Given the star-studded composition of the team, they are sure to have a new banner sooner or later.
Exploring C1S3 RP

BGMI 1.7 update C1S3 Month 5 RP end date revealed

Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) witnessed its developers, Krafton Inc., roll out the 1.7 update on November 19. This update came as a relief to the players and the gaming community as it brought with it several changes and the new Cycle 1 Season 3 Month 5 Royal Pass.

The introduction of the new anti-cheat system resulted in the banning of over 2.5 million hackers in the game. A safer gaming environment and the release of the new Royal Pass attracted a lot of players back to the game.

BGMI 1.7 update C1S3 Month 5 RP end date revealed

The C1S3 Month 5 Royal Pass is loaded with skins and rewards from the mentioned theme based on the Guardian theme.

More about BGMI’s C1S3 Month 5 Royal Pass and when it is ending?

Since Battlegrounds Mobile India’s release in July 2021, the Cycle format has begun in the Royal Pass system, breaking down the norm of a single RP per season.

Knowing the RP end date

Currently, each season is divided into two months, and every month there is a new Royal Pass. The current C1S3 M5 Royal Pass also has a tenure of 30 days and will end on December 19, 2021, at 5:30 AM IST (GST +0). This can be found by tapping on the RP tab, which mentions the start and end date.

This follows BGMI’s format of the Royal Pass missions being divided into four weeks with two additional days to reach RP Level 50. With the second week of RP missions coming up, more RP Elite Pass and Elite Pass Plus will be purchased.

Players who possess the BGMI EZ License card (obtained by purchasing the RP on three successive months) will benefit from unlocking the week three missions, giving them an edge over others.

However, it has to be kept in mind that the Battlegrounds India Series (BGIS) 2021, BGMI’s first official tournament, will begin on December 4, resulting in many players focusing on that leaving the missions.

BGMI will prove crucial as players will be constantly reminded to finish missions

As revealed, the end date of RP in BGMI will prove crucial as players will be constantly reminded to finish missions and reach RP Level 50, to obtain the Mythic Vanguard Set and helmet.

Playing BGMI on low-end Android devices

How to download and play BGMI with optimal FPS on low-end Android devices

Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) has taken the market for mobile gaming to greater heights. Gamers and content creators have thronged the mobile battle royale game.

BGMI has acquired more than 50 million downloads from the Google Play store alone in just over four months. This shows the craze for the game, which is only available exclusively for users in India.

In this era of technological development and hardware upgrades, there is still a major chunk of gamers who use low-end devices.

This article caters mainly to an Android user base as iOS devices are often high-end and comparatively costlier. Users, time and again, have found ways to play BGMI on low-end devices.

Tips for downloading and playing BGMI with optimal FPS on low-end devices

1) Clear phone storage

One of the primary reasons a game lags on an Android phone is its restricted storage. Clearing phone storage once a week might result in a reduction in BGMI lag and FPS (frames per second) drops.

It is easy to clear storage as one needs to visit the Settings and then search for storage. The user can then get rid of any redundant and less used apps and files.

2) Use game boosters

Playing BGMI with game boosters

Various game boosters and game optimisers are now available on the Google Play store for low-end Android devices. Game boosters even come pre-installed on certain mobile phones.

Game boosters take over the BGMI app. Before starting the game, the booster clears the phone’s RAM, resulting in a smoother experience.

3) Use the best in-game graphics settings

Playing with the best graphics settings in BGMI

BGMI tries to keep its players satisfied as they have various in-game graphics settings which a player can set according to his/her needs. While UHD and HDR graphics settings are for high-end devices, the choices for low-end device users are limited.

Low-end Android users need to stick to the Smooth graphics settings along with High or Ultra FPS settings which would enable them to get a decent FPS rate.

4) Avoid downloading resource packs

Avoiding downloading of resource packs

Resource packs are large in size, thus becoming cumbersome for low-end Android device users. Downloading resource packs would lead to an unnecessary increase in file size and hamper the gaming experience by reducing the FPS.

5) Wait for BGMI lite to release

Wait for BGMI lite to release

BGMI lite (like PUBG Mobile Lite) is being made exclusively for low-end device users. Krafton has hinted that the lite version of the game may be released very soon. BGMI Lite would certainly be the best option for optimum FPS on low-end devices.

Perfecting movement in close-range fights

5 best BGMI movement patterns for close-range fights

Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) is amongst the most popular mobile games in India. Hailing from the Battle Royale genre, BGMI is famous for looting, initiating fights, and surviving till the end.

Gunfights are an essential part of BGMI. Players with excellent gun power are preferred by teams and IGLs over others. Gunfights may be initiated from long range using bolt action snipers and DMRs or middle and close range fights using ARs and SMGs.

5 best BGMI movement patterns for close-range fights

Close-range fights are probably the most crucial fight both in BGMI Esports and classic matches. A player’s movement with proper aim and accuracy becomes pivotal in such scenarios that surprise the opponent.

Which are the 5 best BGMI movement patterns for close ranged fights?

1) Take fights from the cover

Cover plays a vital role while taking fights. Be it a mountain, a ridge, a vehicle, or a tree, covers help win close-range fights tremendously.

BGMI Esports players and pros of the game use cover to their advantage in close-range fights. They use the ‘peek and fire’ option very diligently. They peek and shoot and take back cover again. This leaves the attacking enemies in the open with almost nothing to shoot at.

2) Sideways Jiggle movement

Sideways Jiggle movement

The Jiggle movement is reportedly the most used in close-range fights. Proper aim tracing and sensitivity, along with the sideways jiggle, has proved over time in tournaments and classic matches to be quite useful.

A jiggle can be perfected using the gyroscope to aim for the enemy’s head and using the joystick for the movement. Both slow and fast jiggles are handy in close-range gunfights.

3) Crouch and shoot movement

The use of crouch and shoot movements have become popular after the release of BGMI. Esports players use it more often than it was used in PUBG Mobile.

Continuously tapping the crouch button will enable the player to crouch, stand and crouch back again. If this movement is used along with the sideways jiggle movement, it becomes deadly for the opponent. Despite a tough maneuver, the crouch and shoot movements are very effective in close-range fights.

4) Sudden dropshot in low-health situations

The sudden prone shot or drop shot has gradually become a favorite among BGMI players. While engaged in close-range combat of guns, a prone shot befuddles the opponent, destroying their aim and resulting in their defeat.

However, it has to be kept in mind that prone shots can be useful when players are in low health. If used initially, it results in a loss as the prone player would expose his body.

5) Diagonal jump from the cover

Diagonal jump from the cover

The diagonal jump from the cover movement is probably the most challenging maneuver to execute. While jumping, the in-game mechanics redirect the bullets, spreading them slightly away from the aimed target.

However, the diagonal jump shot when an enemy is approaching confuses him. If practiced well, this maneuver can change the outcome of any close-range fight.

Exploring the Mirror World

3 best BGMI tips and tricks to win Mirror World modes easily

The 1.7 update of Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) has introduced a new themed mode for BGMI gamers. The update has come to the players’ rescue as it promises to incorporate a safer gaming experience and a more reliable security system to ban hackers from the mobile game.

The new themed mode is called Mirror World, which highlights PUBG Mobile’s major collaboration with Arcane. Developers at Krafton Inc. have added plenty of rewards based on Mirror World Mode.

Erangel, Sanhok, and Livik are the only three maps, which have been remodeled based on the mode. Many users have found this mode exciting and are striving towards winning matches in the Mirror World.

BGMI effective tips and tricks to win Mirror World modes easily

1) Land on the flying island while playing squads

Land on the flying island while playing squads

The flying island on the Mirror World themed map in BGMI is reminiscent of the flying temple in the ‘Pharaoh Rises’ mode of PUBG Mobile back in 2020. However, Mirror World’s flying island is a more popular drop.

The flying island is full of loot resulting in several squads dropping on the location. The flying island enables a player to get used to hot drops and initial fights. This helps in boosting their confidence. This confidence propels the players to easy wins in BGMI themed mode matches.

It has to be noted that even when BGMI players are defeated on the flying island, they are transported down to the main map, where they have to survive. However, the finish points up on the island count.

2)Proper use of shields and blue crystals

Proper use of shields and blue crystals

The riot shields on the Mirror World map in BGMI may come in handy en route to easy wins. When involved in a fight, a player may use the riot shield to take cover or heal, according to their need.

The blue crystals found in Mirror World are crucial. Blue crystals may be used to summon a supply drop when the players require supplies, be it ammunition, medication, gear or weapons.

3) Look for out enemies near the Mirror World portal

One of the wittiest ways to get a win in the Mirror World mode is to eliminate enemies on their way to the Mirror World. Mirror World opens after the timer counts down to zero, and players rush towards the portal as they try to transform themselves into heroes.

A flock of players head towards the portal, and one guarding it from afar can easily pick up kills. This not only increases their finish points but also provides them lesser enemies and better loot for obtaining a ‘Chicken Dinner’.

The Conqueror tier in BGMI

5 best tips to reach Conqueror tier in Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) in less time

BGMI is exclusive to the country and was released in July 2021. The launch came after PUBG Mobile’s ban in India in September 2020.

While Battlegrounds Mobile India was much awaited by players and rank pushers, hackers are also playing the game simultaneously. After the 1.6 update, gamers witnessed an all-time high rise of hackers, making it challenging to push rank in the game.

However, many users and content creators managed to reach the Conqueror tier, the highest and most prestigious in BGMI.

With the release of the 1.7 update and PUBG New State, a rapid decrease of hackers was seen. This encouraged lots of players to reach Conqueror again.

Reaching the Conqueror tier in BGMI in less time

1) Prefer survival over kills

A conqueror stands out in the lobby. Therefore, many players try to reach this tier in BGMI. As they rank higher, the game has it in its mechanics to emphasize survival rather than kills.

In a battle royal game, “survival of the fittest” is the ultimate goal. As a result, users should focus on surviving and reaching the top ten and obtaining more Chicken Dinners.

2) Rank push at the beginning of the season

Rank push at the beginning of the season

Every season lasts for eight weeks, but it is seen how difficult it gets to reach Conqueror as the season progresses. Since lots of players join in mid-season or at the end of the season, it is relatively easier to reach Conqueror at the beginning of every season.

The top 500 users per day earn the Conqueror title.

3) Rely on health utilities

Healing is an integral part of BGMI matches. Healing points add to a player’s score. Many rank pushers prefer to enter the zone after the initial ten minutes, carrying more medication to survive longer.

After all, battle royale is more a game of mindset and strategy than attack and involvement in fights.

4) Try playing solo and duo modes

Try playing solo and duo modes

The solo and duo modes help players reach Conqueror in a season. Since squad mode and 4v4 Battle Royal are more popular, solo and duo modes are relatively easier.

It’s also easier to find one rank pusher for a duo than three rank pushers for a squad.

5) Play lots of classics and practice on training grounds

Reaching the Conqueror tier is impossible without hard work and sheer dedication. BGMI gamers have to play plenty of classic matches to get to this level.

However, it has to be kept in mind that users need to regularly sharpen their reactions and gun skills at the training ground. The culmination of hard work in both classic matches and on the battlefield would enable them to reach the Conqueror tier in less time.

Choosing the guns with highest damage in BGMI

5 guns with highest damage in Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI)

Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) hails from the “survival of the fittest” Battle Royale genre. Guns and ammunition play a crucial role in Battle Royale games, and the damage dealt from the weapons often determines the outcome of a fight.

A BGMI player has plenty of choices to choose from when it comes to guns. One may choose from Bolt Action Snipers, Machine Guns (LMG, SMG), Assault Rifles (AR), Shotguns, or Pistols. Even the Dedicated Marksman Rifles (DMR) are a good choice.

Classic match mode is the best as it examines the gun power of a player in various fighting scenarios. Every player has their own choice, but most players opt for guns with higher damage in the larger scenario.

Which are the 5 guns with highest damage in Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI)?

1) Artic Warfare Magnum (AWM)

AWM is a weapon that can change the course of a BGMI match within seconds. As Ocean Sharma often says, “AWM is not just a gun, it is a responsibility.” A single-shot sniper, AWM’s 300 Magnum bullets travel the farthest.

It is the only gun in BGMI that can knock an enemy down even when he has worn a Level 3 helmet. AWM is an exclusive airdrop weapon.

  • Base Damage: 105
  • Ammo: 300 Magnum
  • Capacity: 5 (7 with an extended magazine)

2) Kar 98K

Kar 98K BGMI Best Gun

Karabiner 98k has been used in warfare since the Second World War. In BGMI, too, the Kar98K is a favorite among the snipers. Since the gun can be found all around the maps, it has become famous with players. A single-shot sniper, Kar98k, can take down an enemy wearing a Level 2 helmet.

  • Base Damage: 79
  • Ammo: 7.62 mm
  • Capacity: 5 (7 with an extended magazine)

3) MK 14

MK14 is another airdrop exclusive weapon. MK14 is a true beast in the sense that it can be converted from a DMR to an AR with just a tap. BGMI players have witnessed the destruction an MK14 can cause in both close-range and long-range fights.

  • Base Damage: 61
  • Ammo: 7.62 mm
  • Capacity: 10 (20 with an extended magazine)

4) DP 28

DP28 BGMI Best Gun

DP28 is a Russian Light Machine Gun. DP28 can be exclusively found on Erangel and Livik Maps in BGMI. Paired with a 4x scope, a DP28 burst can easily knock an enemy from far away. The only disadvantage while using DP28 is its long reload time.

  • Base Damage: 52
  • Ammo: 7.62 mm
  • Capacity: 47

5) MK 47 Mutant

The MK47 Mutant is a burst fire weapon. Often neglected as people choose ARs over burst fire guns, the first three bullets of this gun, if connected as headshots, are enough to knock an enemy down.

  • Capacity: 20 (30 with an extended magazine)

Exploring the best loot locations in BGMI's Erangel

BGMI has become a worthy successor to its crowd favorite original version, PUBG Mobile, released in 2018. After a setback in 2020, Battlegrounds Mobile India was launched in 2021, and people flocked towards the game.

As a battle royale game, BGMI has kept in mind the primary requirement for “the survival of the fittest”: the loot. Erangel is BGMI’s primary and most played map. As a result, Krafton Inc has kept in mind the need to spread loot around the map.

Since the main cities are the most popular spots for landing, finding the best loot is normative.

BGMI Erangel Georgopool City

4) Yasnaya Polyana

Yasnaya Polyana is found on the northwestern side of Erangel in BGMI. Such is the width of the place that lots of teams drop both in BGMI esports and standard classic matches.

In BGMI esports, champion teams like Godlike Esports have set up their drop location in this city. Esports audiences can find BGMI pro Jonathan Amaral dropping here at times.
