The ultimate guide for AWM sniper rifle in PUBG mobile
In this article, we are going to take a closer look at one of the best sniper rifles in the game. We will check out the stats, the damage model, I will take it to the shooting range. And will also tell you how I got my hands on the M24 and the AWM in the same game.
In the Battleground, we call the AWM a monster sniper rifle and the only 2 ways of getting your hands on the AWM is to pick it up from an airdrop or, to steal out of the cold dead hands of your enemy who just picked it up from an airdrop.
You will never find it lying around in some remote building or anything like that so in a way, your time with this weapon is limited. Unfortunately, it all depends on luck because you never know what you will find in those airdrops.
The ultimate guide for AWM sniper rifle in PUBG mobile
That is why it’s so important to know the stats so that you can take advantage of the AWM to win your next chicken dinner.
The power rating is 100 this means that the AWM is extremely good. The only other weapons in PUBG that have a power rating of 100 are the S1897 and the S686, both of these weapons are shotguns. And as you know they are very powerful but they are also limited in range, but not the AWM, it has a range rating of 100, which is the highest rating in battlegrounds only the m24 comes close with a rating of 96.
The stability is 34, which is ok for a sniper rifle, it’s exactly the same as stability rating for the kar98k but the SKS does a whole lot better with 48. The AWM is a sniper rifle, so don’t expect any miracles for the rate of fire. It has a rating of 6 which is the same as the m24 but it is better than the kar98k which has a firing rate of only of 5.
There is the only type of ammunition in the battleground that is suitable for the AWM and that is the 300 magnum.
You can only get hands-on this type of the ammo from the same airdrop that gave you the AWM, you will never get those bullets lying on the ground. So use it safely because you will get only 20 bullets.
The AWM has 5 bullets in one magazine but this number can be improved if you attach an extended magazine or an extended quickdraw magazine for a sniper rifle. This will increase the capacity from 5 to 7.
The compensator for sniper rifles slightly reduces the horizontal recoil. And it reduces the verticle recoil. In other words, the compensator has a bigger effect on the verticle recoil but it doesn’t hide the muzzle flash and you can also attach a suppressor for a sniper rifle.
The armour stats are pretty straightforward, 1 body shot against a guy who isn’t wearing any body armour, otherwise, you will need 2 body shots to kill. And you will need only one bullet if you go for a headshot, so it doesn’t matter which kind of helmet your enemy is using.
Let’s go to the firing range with the AWM so that we can see how it performs.
The AWM is very simple, if you aim at the centre of the target, then the bullet will also hit the centre of the target. This is one of the reasons why this sniper rifle is so good. At a range, there is absolutely no need to counter for the bullet drop. In general, the bullet drop is almost non-existent, you will only have to apply a very small correction if you go for long-range headshots.
You can use the practice shot method for ultra long range skills but I rarely find it useful.
Let’s compare the AWM with all the other sniper rifles.
As you have guessed, nobody can beat the AWM’s power rating of 100. Only the M24 comes close with a rating of 77 and the weakest one is the VSS with 32.
You can see a similar pattern when you compare the range.
100 for the AWM, then the M24 with 96, the Kar98k with 80, the SKS with 64 and then the VSS with only 38. This the second time that the VSS has bad statistics. The SKS has always been the second worst rifle but definitely performs better when we look at the stability and the firing rate.
SKS is the only rifle that stands out when you look at the stability, it has a rating of 48, and all the other sniper rifles hover around a stability rating of 34, with the VSS performing worse than the rest with only 17.
Fire rating overview
The SKS is a DMR and that means that it has a high rate of fire, 32 to be precise, which is much higher than the other rifles. The Kar98k has the worst stats, only 5 and the AWM does slightly better with 6. As you can see the below graph The AWM never loses, it won the first 2 rounds and it was the runner-up in the third round.
- AWM Power/100 Range/100 Statistics/34 Rating/6
- M24 Power/77 Range/96 Statistics/32 Rating/6
- Kar98k Power/66 Range/80 Statistics/34 Rating/5
- SKS Power/50 Range/64 Statistics/48 Rating/32
- VSS Power/32 Range/38 Statistics/17 Rating/23
I will also show you the different levels of the stats for the different levels of the body armour. And I will highlight the first thing that you will notice is that there is only on a rifle that can kill an enemy with only one body shot and that is the AWM. It can only do that if your enemy isn’t wearing any body armour at all. Most of the other rifles need 2 body shots to kill, the Kar98k needs one extra bullet if the enemy is wearing level 2 or higher and the SKS will need that extra bullet if he is wearing armour level 1. 4 bullets against level 2, and 5 bullets against the highest level of armour.
|Snipers||No Armour||level 1||level 2||level 3|
The VSS is a lot worse, and it needs up to 7 bullets to kill a guy with the highest level.
|No armour||level 1||level 2||level 3|
It’s pretty clear that the AWM is the best sniper rifle in player’s unknown’s battlegrounds. The only downside is the fact that you have to chase an aeroplane. And it depends on luck because you never know what you are going to get. But when you have it best of luck for those heads!
