The ever-so-popular battle royal for mobile, PUBG, is finally getting 120 fps support in the upcoming update. The official PUBG Mobile account on Facebook has confirmed the news and we’ll surely be getting that smooth smooth gameplay in the next version of the game. 

PUBG Mobile 120 fps Overview

The PUBG story 

When PUBGM first launched, you could only go up to 60 fps – a perfectly respectable ceiling for a mobile game. While its Chinese counterpart ‘Game For Peace’ did run at 90 fps, that capability was only added to PUBGM in August 2020. Now, most upper-midrangers and flagship smartphones run PUBG Mobile at a smooth 90 fps setting. With the upcoming version 3.2 update,120fps will be added to the list of FPS options now spanning Low, Medium, High (30 fps), Ultra (40 fps), Extreme (60 fps), Extreme+ (90 fps), and 120 fps.

Why such a fuss? 

Now you may wonder why this is a big deal at all. I mean playing at a constant 60 fps feels smooth enough and you get a pretty good gaming experience. And to that, mobile gamers will say …just try 90! 

Almost all competitive PUBG players would agree that playing at 90 fps gives them (however small) some form of advantage over their enemies. Be it while doing quick leans, crouch spanning, or just strafing (popularly known as jiggling) in general. So, the addition of 120 fps will lift that skill ceiling even higher and there’ll be new meta for 1v1 fights and encounters. 

PUBG Mobile 120 fps Availability and Eligibility 

Currently, you can try out the 120 fps option in the Beta version of the game or wait for the PUBGM v 3.2 update which will likely roll out in May. We haven’t received official information about device compatibility or eligible chipsets but it’s likely going to appear on Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 and 8 Gen 2 devices. On the Apple side, Pro iPhones with 120Hz screens are likely to reap the benefits.
