How To Use The Mini-14 In Close Quarters
At long range, the Mini-14 is formidable for a number of reasons, but it is the close quarter fights that’ll make this gun difficult to compete with. Here are some tips for using the mini-14 more efficiently when within 5o meters of your enemy.
The mini-14 has one of the weakest DPS stats in PUBG. Because of this, you’ll be at a loss when fighting against ARs and other DMRs. To make the Mini-14 viable in close quarter fights, you’ll need to make use of the insane accuracy the weapon has. You can rely more on third-person engagements and feel confident that the weapon will be accurate enough when aiming in third person.
Using The Mini-14 At Longer Distances
Whilst the Mini-14 does less damage than other DMRs, it still does more damage per shot than every AR beside the AKM and Groza. The Mini-14 also can fit 20-30 rounds per magazine. The Mini-14 also has the second highest bullet velocity in-game, behind the AUG A3.
Put all of these things together and you have a weapon that can be spammed across the maps at surprising distances. The Mini-14 is best used as a sustained fire weapon. Just keep firing and firing, because you’ll struggle to find a weapon that can be as consistently accurate at such large distances.
To summarize this guide, consider using the Mini-14 at longer distances to make use of its incredible accuracy. At shorter distances, where individual weapon accuracy is less important, try using another weapon.
