PUBG Mobile Season 18 Week 5 Royale Pass Missions

Friend Squad Boost: Travel more than 30,000m while operating any vehicle in Classic mode

It makes sense to pair this with the Elite Mission down below that demands three kills with you behind the wheel. 30,000 meters in a vehicle is plenty of laps around Erangel, so grab a car and start your road trip, looking out for unsuspecting players to plow through as you go.

With plenty of weeks to go until Royale Pass 18 ends, though, you might want to just let this mission complete naturally. If you can’t see that happening, view this mission as a lesson. Vehicles can easily save you from the blue zone, creating viable strategies where you can (with pills, at least) tank the damage of early circles and use it figurative shadows as a means to stalk players struggling to sprint for the exit. Easy kills means easy boosts to higher ranks.

Choice Mission

  1. Kill 6 enemies with Shotguns in Livik in Classic mode
    • The close-range power of shotguns go hand-in-hand with Livik’s smaller landscape. Hug the wall, get in close, and your target won’t stand a chance. Just remember to strafe if you’re not too confident with the pump-action types.
  2. Kill 6 enemies with Shotguns in Erangel in Classic mode.
    • Getting a shotgun kill is just a matter of getting in close. Force this by sneaking in and around buildings and you’ll immediately have the means for a one-hit kill.
  3. Use Panzerfaust 10 times in Classic mode.
    • The classic panzerfaust RPG is a Karakin exclusive. Its rockets fly fast but deviate from their target relatively quickly. Stick to launching them through windows and small cover for the best results.

Choice Mission

  1. Eliminate 150 enemies with the M16A4 in Arena
    • With a 1x or 2x scope slapped on the top rail, the M16A4 is a perfectly balanced assault rifle that, with proper handling, shouldn’t struggle to send you high on the scoreboards. It’s just a matter of counteracting the recoil in Arena mode’s tighter spaces.
  2. Kill 15 enemies with M16A4 in Classic mode
    • The M16A4 is an all around great assault rifle. Just kit it out to feel like your preferred AR and you shouldn’t have much trouble securing the kills. Wait for a 4x scope and stick to a safe long-range mission if you the sniping type, otherwise, storm settlements with a 2x scope.

PUBG Mobile Season 18 Week 5 Elite Royale Pass Missions

Kill 3 enemies while driving a vehicle in Classic mode

Given you’ll be behind the wheel for this, sticking your head out of the window like a dog with a machine gun isn’t a viable option. Getting your squadmates to do the same won’t work, either. All you can do here is mow enemies over. Channel the teachings of Grand Theft Auto and you’ll get your RP. The best advice is to turn sporadically to confuse your target, then floor it in a straight line toward your target. Make your movements hard to anticipate.

Choice Mission

  1. Kill 5 enemies in a single match in Classic mode
    • For Elite Pass holders, this shouldn’t be a problem at all. Just work to your strengths. If you’re aggressive, play aggressively. If you prefer to attack from afar, find some high ground.
  2. Kill more than 12 players in a single match in Arena
    • This is another case of playing to your strengths. Arena rewards aggression, but so long as you switch position with every couple of kills, snipers can find their place here, too.
  3. Complete 2 Brothers in Arms matches
    • If you’re a complete novice looking to learn or a professional looking to stroke teach, playing two Brothers in Arms matches is the charitable way to complete this choice mission.

Choice Mission

  1. Eliminate 200 enemies with the SCAR-L in Arena.
    • This may sound like a lot of kills. And it is. But with solid play, 15 kills per arena match isn’t too much to expect. It’s readily available, too, so you won’t go a single round without adding to your tally.
  2. Kill 20 enemies with SCAR-L in Classic mode.
    • The SCAR-L is a dependable gun. It’s isn’t terribly hard to find, either. Just slap a 2x sight on for medium visibility and you should be set for a couple of kills per match no problem.

Open 8 Air Drops in Classic mode

Air Drops are signaled by a plane flying overhead. Watch it fly across the sky, then race toward to box that eventually drops from its cargo hold. Rather than emergency rations and a nice picnic, what you’ll find inside is some of the best loot in the game. Be careful, though. Every player on the map can see its position, leading to inevitable skirmishes if the box landed far from the circle’s edge.

For your best chance at securing the package without being picked off by hunters, either take the high ground and let others duke it out, or ride a vehicle straight in and use the box, car, and a bunch of smoke grenades to hide your position. Then just drive or sprint back out.
