Why M416 is so Popular in PUBG Mobile/BGMI?

Welcome guys! have you ever wondered how the M416 become one of the most popular weapons in PUBG mobile† And how did it eventually become the most used weapon in this game? Well, in this Blog I will tell you why M416 is so popular.

Reasons behind the popularity of the M416

Reason 1: Reliability + Versatility

The first obvious reason is that it Reliability. The M416 will never let you down, no matter what range you use. It always does its job.

For example, up close I’d say the M416 is pretty much a decent weapon. It’s obviously not as strong as other weapons, but like I said it’s very reliable. And if you could connect those crucial headshots, then you could easily win your battles.

When it comes to medium range combat this is where M416 excels, most of you use M416 because you want to shoot your enemies. There is no other gun that can do better than M416 when it comes to spraying, except the AUG of course. Being an airdrop weapon, it should be much better than M416. But it’s not, it’s only slightly better than M416.


For example: Look at Grozait’s a significantly better version of AKM and berylwhile the AUG, it will most likely be left out on the airdrop, sad for AUG. I hope Pubg/BGMI makes AUG even better in the future. So that’s I would say M416 will be the strongest weapon in medium range combat.

And when it comes to long-range combat, you can either go forward and spray at your enemies. Proning will reduce your recoil by up to 40% or you can tap once, which is very easy, and very useful if you can’t control the recoil.


But there’s one problem with long-range combat, and that’s when you’re fighting sniper rifles. They have the ability to kill with one shot, so try to avoid fighting snipers. So, as you can see, the M416 fulfills all 3 ranges by being either good or the best. This is why M416 is very well known as the most reliable weapon in this game, but not only that.

Reasons 2: Spray for Moving Vehicles

If you want to spray on a moving vehicle, then M416 is best for that. And spraying from a moving vehicle is also easier with an M416, as the bullets travel at a speed of approx 900 m/swhich by comparison is faster than Kar98’s bullets. So you will most likely connect all your recordings.

Most of you choose not to use M416 because of its damage. You use it because it can deal this kind of damage with precision accuracy.

Reason 3: Blink back

The next reason is that M416 is one of the easiest weapons to use. I mean, M416’s recoil is one of the easiest to control compared to other assault rifles.

For example, if you ask a player what the easiest weapon to use is, pubg/BGMI they would say M416. Because the recoil on this gun is quite easy to control, not too high or not too low, perfectly balanced.

If you are new to this game, most of you would prefer to use M416 for everything as you will find this gun very easy to handle. I did the same. I always struggled to control the recoil of this weapon, but when I tried other weapons, I struggled even more to wield those weapons.

So the M416 is certainly not an easy gun to use. But if you try other rifles, you would find that M416 is the easiest of all the other assault rifles. It may require a lot of attachments, but even without attachments it is still the best.

Reasons 4: M416 can be combined with any weapon

The next reason and the best thing about M416 is that you can literally combine this gun with any weapon in this game. You’d be fine, say you’re using a shotgun, or a sniper, or even the crossbow with M416. You’d be fine, because M416 has your back covered.

This is perhaps one of the best reasons why many people use M416. Because it doesn’t matter which weapon you use, as long as you have M416 you’re good.

Reason 5: The M416’s spawn rate is low, but easy to find?

The next reason is that somehow it is easy to find M416. M416’s spawn rate isn’t super rare, or super high, it’s somewhere in between. Sometimes you find this gun easily, sometimes you don’t. That’s the thing about M416, this gun’s spawn rate isn’t super fast. So finding M416 can be difficult at times.

But you should also realize that you are not alone in looking for M416. Your enemies do the same, and some of them may have already found it. So if you kill an enemy, you are more likely to find M416 in that chest.


Because enemies are the best source of loot at every stage of the game. They will always collect the best possible loot. So killing them will give you the best loot they’ve been looking for for the past few minutes. The M416’s spawn rate may be slow, but because everyone is looking for it. You will find it easily through the enemies.

Reason 6: M416 is available in every card

The last reason is that it is available on every single card. How can this be a reason, you might think? Well, if you use a specific gun for a very long time. You will understand his behavior such as how much recoil to control and how far forward to aim.


The more often you use a weapon, the better you understand how it works. Since M416 appears on every single map, you can learn more about each map you play.


And I think these are the 6 main reasons why the M416 became the most widely used weapon in Pubg mobile. But if you know any more reasons, let me know in the comments.
