PUBG Mobile features an in-depth weapons arsenal that is perhaps the most diverse of all battle royale games. From handguns to assault rifles and even snipers, the game has left no category intact.
Each weapon category has different types of weapons that can be used depending on the situation. While SMGs are good for close range encounters, they are bound to fail if your enemies are more than 500 meters away.
Assault rifles are one of the most used weapons in the game. They adapt to different situations and provide almost the best results in each of them. ARs also deal massive damage to enemies around 100 meters away.
Light Machine Guns or LMGs are a mixture of assault rifles and heavy machine guns. Although it causes massive damage, it lacks consistency and reliability.
In this article, we compare the M416 (assault rifle) and the M249 (LMG), which are two weapons of different classes in PUBG Mobile.
Ammo: 5.56 mm; Damage: 41; Rate of fire: 0.0857 seconds; Reload time: 2.10 seconds.
The M416 is one of the most popular assault rifles in the game. It has 41 damage and uses 5.56mm ammunition. Each magazine of the gun delivers 30 rounds with a firing rate of 0.0857 seconds. The weapon accepts a wide range of accessories, and with the right fit, the M416 could prove to be the ultimate game-changer.
Using the M416 doesn’t have many drawbacks, except that it’s fairly average without the right set of attachments. However, this does not prevent the rifle from being the best pick in the assault rifle category.
Ammo: 5.56 mm; Damage: 45; Rate of fire: 0.075 seconds; Reload time: 8.20 seconds.
M249 is an LMG exclusive in the game. It has a damage of 45 ° and uses 5.56mm ammo. It offers a high rate of fire of 0.075 sec and a large store of 100 rounds. The weapon accepts sights up to a 6x range. It has massive firepower and a large magazine to support it.
The main drawback to using the M249 is its long reload time of 8.20 seconds, which can be tedious during a head-to-head duel. It also drains the entire magazine very quickly, so players need to be careful about how they use the weapon.
M416 and M249 are used for various purposes in PUBG Mobile. The latter is a fire cover and anti-vehicle weapon. The M249 could not be your primary choice as it could not adapt to different situations. Whereas, the M416 is a well-managed and reliable weapon that players can use in nearly every situation. It offers faster reloads, serious damage, and friendly bounce.
