Differences Between PUBG Mobile And PUBG Lite
So, now going to the main topic when you are playing the two games or just played one and curious about the differences between the two games you would consider. And now I’m going to tell you the 5 differences that I have considered while playing the two games.
Environment Between PUBG Mobile and PUBG Lite
First, let’s discuss the differences in environment between PUBG Mobile and PUBG Lite, mainly the differences between the environments and graphical details of PUBG Mobile and PUBG Lite. So, when playing the two-game, I have noticed significant differences between the two-game environments. In PUBG mobile, the environment details are quite cartoonists, while the PUBG lite has more realistic graphic details.
And PUBG Lite’s environment is more like PUBG PC. The windows have glass in them, and the cars can kill you if you run in front of a car. In contrast, it doesn’t matter in PUBG mobile more than less. And the environment colors, the houses, and the yards and trees are much more realistic than PUBG Mobile.
Weapon Recoil Difference Between PUBG Mobile and PUBG Lite
Secondly, I want to talk about the differences between PUBG Mobile and PUBG Lite’s gun mechanisms. So, I have also found significant differences in weapon recoil and weapon physics between the two games when playing the two games. And to talk about PUBG Mobile, its assault and sniper recoil feels like an airgun when you have played PUBG Lite already.
When playing PUBG Lite, it indeed has a closer feeling of the gameplay of PUBG PC than the PUBG Mobile emulated version. And the weapons have a more realistic feel in recoils than when playing PUBG LITE, not PUBG Mobile. And it takes much more experience to control the recoils in PUBG Lite than PUBG Mobile.
Maps Difference Between PUBG Mobile and PUBG Lite
Thirdly, I want to talk about the map differences between these two games, though. First of all, let me say that the PUBG Lite has the same map as PUBG Mobile. And there are no differences but only in the graphic details.
So, when I was playing the two-game, I was sometimes feeling excited and sometimes feeling tensions cause when playing PUBG Mobile, the map shows the direction of the gunfire and vehicles. Also, it shows the footsteps of a nearby enemy and even the position of an extremely nearby enemy. But then, when I was playing PUBG Lite, I was quite surprised while an enemy got me knocked out of nowhere, and the only thing I noticed about him was his sound, and the map didn’t show anybody nearby and even the footsteps.
So, later I understood that PUBG LITE also has the same map options as the PUBG PC version. And if there is an enemy nearby, you have noticed the sound and act from it to save your soul or defeat the enemy.
Loot Options Differences between PUBG Mobile and PUBG Lite
Fourthly, I want to talk about the loot options differences between these two games. And first of all, let me say that even in here on loot options, the PUBG Lite has the same option as PUBG PC.
So, when playing the two-game, I have sorted out these differences when looting my first enemy and got knocked out by another enemy while playing PUBG LITE. And yes, it has the same manual looting function as the PUBG PC. whenever you loot an enemy, you just take a look inside the baggage manually, and you have to choose manually which things you want to loot from the baggage. And also need to be careful of the enemy hunt grounds.
Friendly Fire Availability Between PUBG Mobile and PUBG Lite.
It’s time for fifth and today’s last differences between PUBG Mobile and PUBG Lite. And I have experimented with it accidentally while just I a teammate of mine was making fun of me and I shoot him, and he died.
So, you would notice friendly fire availability as a difference between PUBG Mobile and PUBG Lite when playing these two games. So, PUBG Lite also has another similarity with PUBG PC, and that is friendly fire. And so the one who plays PUBG Mobile, here is a warning for you, and that is, do not mess with the gun.
So mainly these 5 differences between PUBG Mobile and PUBG Lite that I have noticed and sorted out for you to know. And if I find any more advanced differences, that will also be count as differences between PUBG Mobile and PUBG Lite. Thank you and see you again.
