P90 and MK12 Review - PUBG Mobile
The latest update in PUBG Mobile saw the much awaited release of a new map called Livik. This map is unavailable on any other platform and is exclusive to the mobile platform. The release of the map came with other content releases such as new guns and a new vehicle which will make things interesting. The new vehicle is the Monster Truck and has already been a big hit among players for being a unique mode of transport. In this article we take a look at the two new skins, their stats and situations they can be good in. Both guns are only available on the new map.
Category: DMR (Designated Marksman Rifle)
Fire Rate: Semi Automatic - Only single fire
Round Capacity: 20 (30 with extended magazine)
Ammo Type: 5.56
The Mk12 is a gun which falls in the DMR category. It uses 5.56 ammunition and has a large magazine for a DMR. The gun has one of the lowest recoils in the game and feels incredibly smooth when firing. This means that the micro adjustments that you have to make when firing shots is much lower than many other DMR weapons in the game. While low recoil is general balanced with lower damage, the Mk-12 has a very decent damage statistic.
In terms of attachments it has slots for muzzle, sight/scope, magazine and grip. It will accept attachments from assault rifles and snipers as all DMRs do. It also has a built in stand like the QBU, which lowers recoil when prone. A 4x or 6x scope works best and the gun is meant to be used in mid-long range engagements.
It is certainly a gun that has a lot of potential and is worth carrying at all stages of the game. You will need to support it with a secondary fully automatic weapon, but such is standard in almost all loadouts. Since it is only available in Livik, which itself is a smaller map, you will need fully automatic weapons as there aren’t too many options of dodging fights and making long rotations.
Category: Submachine gun
Fire Rate: Fully Automatic
Round Capacity: 50 (No magazine attachments)
Ammo Type: 9 mm
The P90 is an excellent close combat weapon and is a good option for those who like the high fire rate of weapons such as the micro Uzi. However, the gun has a very noticeable recoil to compensate for its insanely high fire rate. The ideal way to use the weapon is in the close quarters. The large magazine size makes it really good when clearing buildings and prefiring corners and it is also great in 1v1 situations where having 50 bullets can be a nightmare for the enemy to deal with. However, the reload time for the weapon is quite high so remember to keep an eye on things.
The gun has slots for sights, muzzles and grips and will use SMG attachments. However it does not have a magazine attachment as it already comes with 50 bullets. Unlike the Mk-12 this gun isn’t for everyone and especially in a squad setting, don’t pick it up for more than one or at max 2 players. The options with the gun isn’t too great but it excels in the one thing it is meant to. However, if you would like to master this weapon, one important thing to unlearn will be the automatic response of hitting the reload button after firing a few bullets.
