Groza is yet another assault rifle that uses 7.62 rounds. It offers a very high fire rate as well as good damage per shot.

The only problem that PUBG Mobile players deal with while using Groza is the high vertical recoil, though, this won’t be a problem because we are talking about short range engagements.

UZI is a sub-machine gun in PUBG Mobile that offers a high fire-rate and base damage of 26 hit points per shot. Players can use a plethora of different attachments to meet their needs.

In PUBG Mobile, UZI is the best sub-machine gun for short-range because of its high clip size and fire rate. Also, with the recent update, the developers themselves have upgraded the UZI to be more effective in the short-range.

We highly recommend PUBG Mobile players to use the AKM when it comes to short-range engagements. In this entire list, AKM is the most powerful assault rifle. The only problem that players face while using the AKM is its high recoil.

However, as we said earlier it won’t matter as this list is for best weapons at short range. Apart from that, we would suggest you all practice the recoil control for AKM as if you manage the recoil you can become a force to be reckoned with no matter what range engagement you choose.

AKM uses 7.62 rounds and it deals a base damage of 49 hit points per shot.

PUBG Mobile is a free to play battle royale game currently available on Android and iOS devices.
