Use the Eye – You can look behind you as you are running without changing your run or where you are going. Use this to look for other players so you aren’t caught from behind.
Footsteps on the Compass – Watch the compass at the top of the screen to see footsteps so you know when someone is near and where they are located.
Pay Attention to the Safe Zone – The map gets smaller throughout the game, and you have to stay inside the safe zone, always be working your way to the safe area.
Jump and Strafe – If you are being shot at, jump, strafe and move erratically. It’s tough to aim and this will help keep you alive.
Watch Finger Placement – Make sure you don’t accidentally tap on backpack and other options.
Vehicle Tips – Never get out while the vehicle is moving, you will take damage.
Learn how to Parachute and you need to plan ahead if you want to parachute in faster to get loot quicker than your opponents. Open the map to see how the plan is flying across the map. Set a marker where you want to land. When you are close, jump and then push up and away to go as fast as you can to the ground, or pull up slightly to go farther. Avoid landing right next to other people if you can.
The hardest part about Rules of Survival is winning gun fights. This tutorial will walk you through how to aim better as you play the game. It takes a lot of practice so don’t get disappointed if you have issues getting started.
Adjust your sensitivity to fine tune your controls and go back to it as you are between games until you get the settings just right. Also, make sure your screen is clean. Always try to keep your aim at head height even when you are running around. Other than that, you need to practice a lot to improve.
