PUBG has been a fairly household name in the gaming world, and for good reasons. One of the reasons: PUBG is a multi-platform game, which means its reach is not limited to one particular platform.

That being said, PUBG is currently available on desktop, console and mobile, and ever since its arrival on mobile phones, PUBG's craze has been through the roof.

If you have been an active PUBG player on both desktop PCs and mobile phones, you would certainly observe some differences in terms of gameplay, features, weapons overall experience and the reason is lack of cross-platform compatibility.

Plus, not everything is best suited for every screen size and user experience. For example, PUBG experience on PC and console has to be different from the one on a mobile phone given the limitations in terms of how we interact with our phones.
