There are multiple reasons why “Knvies Out” deserves to be called as an able alternative to PUBG. First things first, it provides an extremely competitive battle royal where the only way you can be the champ is by decimating the rivals.

Another cool feature is that you get a chance to form your own rules. So, you’ve got to be innovative in the way you attack your rivals. Knowing that one set of tricks won’t take you anywhere close to the victory, you need to keep charting out killer moves to stay in the hunt.

Along the way, you get a chance to explore the snow-capped mountains, wonderful islands, and train tunnels. Be sure you don’t get lost in them as your enemies might be lingering around and waiting for the chance to blow you away!

“Fortnite” is the number game in the adventure category and has amassed 4.6 stars out of 3.3M ratings. To me, it’s the best alternative to PUBG on iOS.

The Battle Royal is full of challenges and you’ve got to be the last one standing to win the fight. To dominate the game, you can join hands with your friends or other players from around the world. Build a strong cover to prevent your enemies from attacking you. And don’t miss out on any chance to destroy the cover of your rivals.

While decimating your enemies and evading their attacks, don’t fail to gather resources and pick out the robust gears. Moreover, Fortnite keeps adding all-new modes, dreading weapons and crazy looks for your avatar so that the fun never has a stoppage!
