PUBG Mobile took the mobile gaming community by a storm. The popular game which was once available on Microsoft’s Windows platform for a premium was made free for Android. Thanks to Tencent who bought the rights to the game. It’s been months now since it’s release but most of the low end or even high-end premium device for that matter suffer from performance issues. We bring you the GFX Tool for graphics which you can utilize to step up your game on PUBG Mobile.
GFX Tool is probably one of the most downloaded PUBG Mobile Graphics tools on Google Play Store. The tool is developed by a Ukrainian Developer who goes by the name of tsoml. This tool comes in very handy as it has a plethora of options to choose from. Once you have the app installed on your device, open and you will see many options listed. But the ones you should be focussing on are the game version, resolution, graphics, fps and shadows. Download on Play Store.
Since there are a lot of options to choose from, you really have to test it out each one of them separately to see what works best for you! It’s basically trial and error method. If you’re a PUBG Mobile Beta user, then you don’t need to worry about it as the app is updated within a day of the release of a new beta update. Here are the settings I personally use on my device and it gives good performance along with good overall visual quality.
How to use GFX Tool to reduce lag in Android PUBG Mobile?
GFX Tool (previously Graphic Tool for Battlegrounds) is a useful tool which allows you to unlock Full HD graphics, 60 FPS and other graphics settings for PUBG Mobile.
GFX Tool is currently available only on Android and is compatible with both Chinese and international versions of the game.

Step 2: Close PUBG Mobile if it’s currently running before starting GFX Tool
Step 3: Start customizing graphics settings for PUBG Mobile

- Graphics: Select resolution and graphics quality that match your device’s capability.

In case you encounter any problem with the game while playing, click on the Repair button in-game, close the game and restart GFX Tool.

Final step: Have fun and may you eat lots of chicken dinners!
Recommended Settings for PUBG Mobile on GFX Tool

PUBG Mobile for Android v0.10.5
This is the most important part about setting the application up. If you choose version 0.7, the application will request root access as it’s impossible to access the targeted FPS without it. Across the world and in Korea, though, version 0.6 is still the latest version released. You must check what version your game is before trying to run it through GFX Tool.
This part is pretty self-explanatory. The game on the OnePlus 3 runs at 1920×1080, so halving the resolution to 960×540 means a smoother downscale while also greatly reducing the number of pixels needing to be rendered.
PUBG has a number of graphics options available to users, but there are even more not shown to the user. You can enable super high fidelity graphics here that aren’t normally accessible, so you can give that a try if you want. Smooth is lower than usual graphics, so it helps to squeeze out some more FPS.
This is the maximum FPS that we want. You’ll want to set this to 60 unless you’re trying to avoid thermal throttling. The higher the value the better the fluidity, but the more power is needed.
Anti-aliasing often removes “jaggedness” of textures, but at the cost of performance. Disabling this will net you higher FPS.
Style refers to the saturation levels and colours in-game. You don’t need to worry about this setting as it’s purely cosmetic.
While disabling shadows may net you a higher performance, it’s often a poor idea to disable them in games like PUBG. They can be advantageous, so it’s better to leave it on “Skip” and let the game decide.
Vulkan refers to the usage of the Vulkan Graphics API which can improve performance but requires a supported device. The latest devices should support Vulkan, but if the game fails to start you’ll want to make sure this option is off. Attempting to use it on unsupported devices will make the game crash at launch.
GFX Tool also has the option to save your controls and other settings like sensitivity, ammo pickup amount etc to a local file. One thing to keep in my mind is that if you’re using Google Play Games, Facebook or any other social media account to log in to PUBG Mobile then you don’t need to enable this option as everything is backed up in the cloud.
Note: The above-recommended settings are for mid-range devices only. If you have low-end device then change the settings accordingly as explained above.
