Although PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has recently gone free-to-play and rebranded as PUBG: Battlegrounds, many players are baffled by the game’s new tutorial. The game’s introductory training mode sends players to a shooting range and instructs them to shoot the targets in ADS Mode, but the game fails to explain what that means. Because PUBG handles scopes differently than other shooters, aiming down sights as you would in any other shooter won’t work. Here’s PUBG ADS Mode: How to Aim Down Sights in PUBG Xbox One
PUBG ADS Mode: How to Aim Down Sights in PUBG Xbox One
How to Enter ADS Mode in PUBG
ADS Mode in PUBG refers to looking through your weapon’s scope from a first-person perspective. It’s not enough to simply hold down the right mouse button or the left trigger. On a PC, press the right mouse button to enter ADS Mode. On the PS4 or Xbox, press the left trigger to enter ADS Mode. The aim button should not be held down. If you keep the right mouse button or the left trigger pressed, your character will not enter ADS mode and will instead aim in third-person.
If everything goes as planned, you’ll be in first-person view, looking through your weapon’s scope or iron sight. If tapping the aim button once does not activate ADS Mode, try tapping it twice. Remember that PUBG treats aiming and ADS Mode as separate things, so in order for your shots to count in the tutorial, you must look down your weapon’s sight in first-person.
How to Change ADS Controls
You can change the default aiming/ADS control scheme in the game’s settings if you find it a little awkward. All you have to do on PC is change Aim and ADS to separate controls and edit your keybinds. You can change the Controller Button Preset to Type B on PS4 and Xbox by going to the Settings menu.
This will separate the Aim and ADS buttons. Type B, in particular, will set third-person Aim to L1/LB and first-person ADS to L2/LT, but if you want a different control layout, you can choose a different setting.
