Ever since PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds) got released in 2016, players from around the world have joined in on the fun. As this video game is popular in almost every continent, the developers have made different servers for specific regions. So, when you open PUBG and log in using your credentials, you automatically get connected to the server that is closest to you. This usually happens because the servers that are near are generally much faster than those in other regions. Now, sometimes you would want to change the server because you are experiencing game issues or you would want to play with different players around the world. The good news is that changing servers is really not that difficult and anyone can do it. Here are the steps to change servers in both PUBG for PC and PUBG for mobile devices.
Changing Servers in PUBG Mobile:
- Log in to your PUBG account using your credentials.
- When you reach your home screen, you will see your default server on the top left corner of your screen with an arrow behind it. Upon clicking on it, a list of servers can be seen. These are – Asia, Europe, North America, and South America.
- You can instantly connect to any server you would like to play on. However, it is recommended that you choose a server with the lowest ping. The higher the milliseconds, the slower the gameplay gets. If network speed is not an issue, you are good to go!
Changing Servers in PUBG PC:
- Doing this is not as easy for the PC version but you will get the hang of it easily.
- First off, you need to download a VPN for your computer. Browse the internet, read reviews, and install the one that suits you the best. The best VPN online is Nord VPN. Moreover, you would want to purchase a premium version of any VPN because usually, you do not have many options in the free version. And because we have to connect to specific regions, this can only be done with paid services.
- Once you have your VPN set up, you have to connect to specific countries to access different servers. Here is a list of what countries you need to connect to for different servers:
- Asia – India
- Korea or Japan – Japan
- Europe – Frankfurt, Germany
- North America – Ohio, US
- South-East Asia – Singapore
- Oceania – Australia
- Now, connect to a location that you would want to play on. Turn on steam and start the PUBG PC application. After the game loads, you will see that you have automatically connected to the server that you wanted to.
Troubleshooting Connectivity Problems:
This might sound easy but you still might face a lot of issues when doing this. Let us have a look at some of them:
- Let us focus on PUBG for mobile now. If you use the default server changing option in the game, it might be a little slow and you would find it difficult to play. Instead, you could try downloading a VPN for you mobile and manually connecting to that location. It might turn out to be faster but there is no guarantee of this. This is a hit and trial method.
- Users of PUBG for pc would face a lot of issues. Primarily, some would not connect to different servers when they connect to other locations using a VPN. In such a case, you would have to experiment with the VPN first. There are a lot of VPNs that will change the location successfully but the game would still show the default server. That is why you will have to put in a lot of research into selecting the best VPN.
