Artikel ini adalah sebahagian daripada siri pubg Mobile mini-panduan dari rakan eGCellent di eGG Network, untuk membantu meningkatkan kehebatan anda dalam pertempuran beramai-ramai (Battle Royale) dengan teknik yang mudah difahami.


Tidak menghairankan, pemain profesional menggunakan bom asap dengan banyaknya, terutamanya dalam kejohanan e-sukan PUBG Mobile peringkat tinggi seperti PUBG Mobile Global Championship Season Zero (PMGC 2020). Lagipun, ianya adalah salah satu 'pickup' yang berharga yang terdapat di PUBG Mobile, penting untuk memenangi 'Winner Winner Chicken Dinner'. Oleh itu, sudah tiba masanya pemain menggunakan utiliti selain bom peledak (Frag Grenade) dan mengetahui cara pengunaannya.

Selain itu, untuk menjadikan panduan ini lebih mudah difahami, terlintas difikiran penulis untuk mendapatkan pakar iaitu pemain (support/grenadier) Team SMG, Bard, Lagipun, Team SMG PUBG Mobile mendapat tempat ketiga dalam PMPL MY/SG Musim 2 dan mewakili Malaysia dalam PmPL SEA Finals Musim 2.

Jom! kita ketahui perkara teknikal dulu sebelum mengupas apa tips menarik.

Info-info Penting

Masa cook : Tujuh saat
Masa fius: Tiga saat
Diameter anggaran asap: 10 meter (ya, kami mengukurnya)
Berat: 14 ruangan

Tidak seperti bom peledak, tanpa mengira berapa lama anda bom asap (iaitu apabila anda memegang butang melempar tanpa melepaskan), masa fius (jangka masa dilepaskan) tetap sama. Berat bom asap adalah utiliti ketiga paling berat selepas bom peledak (18) dan Molotov Cocktails (16).

Berhati-hati ketika

Cara yang paling biasa bahawa semua orang menggunakan bom asap adalah untuk menyelamatkan diri sendiri, serta rakan sepasukan. Ini berguna dalam pelbagai senario yang anda akan ketahui, seperti:

Kepintaran kami mengukur diameter bom asap.

Walau bagaimanapun, perkara ini membolehkan dan menggalakkan musuh untuk menembak ke dalam asap untuk mengetahui lokasi anda yang sering dilihat pemain pro lakukan dari semasa ke semasa. Walaupun terdapat kelemahan, kaedah ini masih berfungsi lebih kerap, dan ia adalah baik untuk berhati-hati supaya lebih menyedari apa yang boleh berlaku dan sentiasa bersedia.

Terancam ketika pemulihan

Apabila anda sedang merawat diri semasa bersembunyi dalam asap, salah satu cara untuk menentang isu di atas adalah untuk berbaring ketika merawat di atas tanah semasa pemulihan. Ini mengurangkan kesan 'hitbox' (kawasan di mana anda menerima kerosakan) secara drastik, membiarkan anda sembuh lebih selamat. Walaupun anda masih berisiko terkena tmebakan musuh, sekurang-kurangnya ini menjadikan anda lebih tidak dapat diramalkan daripada dengan berdiri atau membongkok.

Gunakan lemparan rendah

Walaupun lemparan tinggi adalah tetapan utama untuk mencampak bom tangan, bom asap boleh dikatakan lebih baik digunakan menggunakan lemparan rendah kerana ia memberi anda lebih banyak kawalan dan melepaskannya lebih dekat kepada anda. Ini kerana anda akan menggunakannya lebih kerap untuk menyembuh anda dan rakan skuad anda, dan anda memerlukan asap yang dekat untuk berbuat demikian; lemparan rendah mengurangkan lantunan lontaran anda juga. Walaupun begitu, ini adalah situasi semata-mata, dan terpulang kepada keutamaan anda juga.

Tiada lagi persembunyian

Dah tak ada dekat sana.

Jika anda ingin meningkatkan kemahiran berfikir, mengapa tidak menggunakan bom asap untuk tujuan lain bagi mengaburi pihak musuh?? Anda boleh mengenakan pihak musuh dengan:

Biarkan mereka berfikir

Ambil perhatian bahawa ini memerlukan anda menggunakan lebih banyak bom asap daripada biasa. Lebih baik bersedia dengan segala kelengkapan bagi mengatasi setiap situasi.

Apa yang pro lakukan

Bard secara peribadi memegang lima hingga sembilan bom tangan asap dalam setiap perlawanan, jadi dia boleh membantu pasukannya dalam setiap situasi permainan. "Tujuan utama saya untuk bom asap adalah untuk menghalang musuh daripada menyerang pasukan saya," dengan 'bermain-main' dan mengelirukan mereka. Dia menggemari taktikal bom asap dalam satu baris bagi mewujudkan dinding asap. Grenadier Team SMG menasihatkan untuk "menggunakan asap anda dengan bijak, jangan pernah membazirkannya pada satu kawasan" dan menyebarkannya.

Saiyajinn, Team SMG's tank player, is our choice for today's Player Spotlight. For those of you who think he looks familiar, he was previously known as Ax when playing for the XPAX X-ASSINS (alongside Smooth) in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Malaysia/Singapore Season 4. He has since switched roles and now is in charge of initiation and soaking up enemy damage. While he doesn't have the most impressive stats in the league, he gets the job done being the backbone of his team. On week 2 of MPL-MY S7, their 2-1 victory over Todak secured him an MVP of the day vote, thanks to his flawless play on Grock. Throughout the league, he has shown off his prowess on heroes such as Hilda, Chou and Hylos.

While Team SMG managed to only finish third in their groups, they have shown some brilliant flashes of gameplay throughout the regular season and look like capable contenders of this year's championship. However, the path won't be easy.

Team SMG go up against Season 3 Champions, Geek Fam in the lower bracket of the playoffs this weekend. Team SMG won their previous encounter, so this one should be no different right? There's a lot riding on these players to perform since it's a lower bracket match, both teams will be going all out.

The MPL-MY S7 playoffs kick off on 28-30 May, and will be broadcasted live on eGG Network TV, and the MPL Malaysia Facebook Page. Don’t miss out!

This article is part of a series of PUBG Mobile mini-guides from your eGGcellent friends at eGG Network, to help level up your mobile battle royale prowess with bite-sized tips that are quick yet nutritious to digest.


It's unsurprising that professional players use smoke grenades abundantly, especially in high-tier PUBG Mobile esports tournaments like the PUBG Mobile Global Championship Season Zero (PMGC 2020). After all, they truly are one of the more valuable pickups available in PUBG Mobile, vital to one's Winner Winner Chicken Dinners. Thus, it's high time we gamers learn from their utility of choice (aside from frag grenades, which we'll cover another time) and learn how to utilise it more.

Plus, to make this guide even sweeter, we figured we should ask Team SMG's resident support/grenadier player, Bard, to chime in with his expert opinion on the subject. After all, Team SMG PUBG Mobile did get third place in PMPL MY/SG Season 2 and represented Malaysia in the PMPL SEA Finals Season 2.

Let's get a bit technical first before we dive into our tips:

The nitty gritty

Cook time: Seven seconds
Fuse time: Three seconds
Approximate diameter of smoke: 10 meters (yes, we measured it)
Weightage: 14 spaces

Unlike frag grenades, regardless of how long you cook a smoke grenade (which is when you hold the Throw button without releasing), the fuse time remains the same. Weight-wise, smoke grenades are the third heaviest utility after frag grenades (18) and Molotov Cocktails (16).

Actual screenshots we took in-game.

Beware when you smoke up

The most common way that everyone uses smoke grenades is to conceal oneself, as well as teammates. This comes in handy in a multitude of scenarios you'll find yourself in, such as:

Our high IQ way of measuring the smoke diameter.

However, because these are so commonplace, you may give away your location and encourage enemies to shoot into the smoke, which you've probably seen what pro players do from time to time. Despite its setback, this method still works more often than it doesn't, and it's good to be mindful of what could happen and be prepared.

Prone to healing

When you're healing while hiding in smoke, one way to counter the above issue is to lie prone on the ground while doing so. This reduces your hitbox (the area where you receive damage) drastically, letting you heal up safer. Although you still risk getting hit by enemies, at least this makes you a bit more unpredictable than by standing or crouching.

Use low toss

Even though High Toss is the default setting for throwing grenades, smoke grenades are arguably better deployed using Low Toss instead, as it gives you more control and releases it closer to you. That's because you'll be using them more often to conceal you and your squadmates, and you'd need your smoke nearby to do that; Low Tosses reduce the bounciness of your throwables too. Even so, this is purely situational, and it's up to your preference as well.

No more hiding

Nope out of here.

Or if you want to up your IQ, why not use smoke grenades for other purposes than obscuring yourself? You can use it to trick enemies by:

Keep them thinking.

Take note that these would require you to use more smoke grenades than usual, so it would be wise to have more than a handful with you at all times.

What the pro does

Bard personally holds five to nine smoke grenades in every match, so he can help his team pull off any plays. "My main purpose for smoke grenades is to prevent enemies from attacking my team," by blinding and confusing them - he favours lining up his smoke grenades in one line to create a smoke wall too. The Team SMG grenadier advises to "use your smokes wisely, never waste them in just one area" and spread them out.

Team SMG Valorant will make their first competitive appearance in Lenovo's Rise of Legion: Valorant tournament, which will run from 27 to 31 July.


Captain Artha reflects on the team's current red-hot form.

The players on Team SMG, formerly XPAX X-Assins have experienced their fair share of lows and disappointments. Captain, Artha, along with Kuku and Smooth made their MPL-MY/SG debuts in Season 3. Also in that squad was Season 2 champion Ax (formerly Jinn). In their past two seasons, they scraped into the Playoffs by the skin of their teeth, finishing 7th and 8th respectively in the past two Regular Seasons. At the Playoffs, they would tamely finish joint 7th/8th and one wouldn’t be faulted for writing them off as a perennial league punching bag.

From left, Ax, Kuku, Artha, Smooth, Tacuz and Raisyaa.

“Never give up.” That’s the biggest lesson Mohammad Al Hatta, aka “Artha,” learnt from two seasons of falling short. “The past two seasons of MPL have helped us mature in terms of our individual gameplay, teamwork and mental strength,” he added.

That fortitude was tested throughout the 2019 competitive year because Smooth and Raisyaa (who joined in Season 4) had to prepare for their SPM (Malaysia’s national high school graduation exam). Artha revealed that their training time was therefore limited because they had to divide their time between academic and competitive MLBB commitments. Now that they’ve completed their studies, the squad’s focus has been on training, which has led to their current success.

Smooth currently tops the kill score charts.

That focus has paid dividends. Smooth currently leads the kills chart of MPL-MY/SG, racking up 62 kills in 9 games played and on average, deals 38.1% of the team’s total hero damage. Raisyaa, the team’s mid lane Mage/Assassin player, has also been instrumental in securing the team its position near the top of the standings after two weeks of Regular Season play.

Nevertheless, naysayers may be quick to point out that the teams SMG have faced aren’t the league’s strongest: Orange Esports Reborn, Team Bosskurr and Notorious Villains. But in the upcoming week 3 matches, they have a fiery trial against defending champions EVOS SG as well as Season 3 champions Geek Fam. Artha responds to the challenge with eagerness, saying “We’re ready to face both teams and will do our best. All the teams in MPL-MY/SG are strong, and we cannot underestimate anyone.”

Artha was also ebullient about Team SMG’s acquisition of the squad, “we were ecstatic!” The morale boost has certain seeped into their performance. As the league currently stands, they average the highest number of kills and assist per game at 24 and 45 respectively. The league average for both are currently 16 kills per game and 32 assists per game. However, one concern for the team is their tendency to overextend themselves and lose games tamely.

Jawhead is the most-picked hero in MPL so far,

The team has found great success with Jawhead (71% win rate), also MPL-MY/SG’s most-picked hero. “Jawhead is flexible. He can be played both as a Support or a Fighter depending on the draft of a game.” Commenting on the state of the competitive scene, he also remarked that Flameshot, the Battle Spell that has dominated the first two weeks of MPL, is overpowered and ought to be nerfed, be it its cooldown or scaling damage.

Related: Flameshot is an issue.

Despite flying high, Artha says that his team’s feet are firmly rooted on the ground. There’s still a long way to go, but he remains positive and hopeful. He’s thankful for the support of those who have rooted for the team despite their mediocre results in the past two seasons. “I’d like to give a big shout-out to my family for supporting me! My siblings play MLBB and my parents have been pillars I’ve leant on when times were tough.”

Artha knows what it feels like to underperform and pleads with fans “Don’t be toxic when your favourite team is having a tough time during the Regular Season. It is at their lowest points when players need your encouragement.”

Team SMG next face EVOS SG on 14 Mar (Saturday) and Geek Fam on 15 Mar (Sunday). You can catch them live on MLBB’s Facebook page.


MPL-MY/SG is organised by eGG Network. 


The Malaysian MLBB team will be competing in Season 5 starting this weekend.

Team SMG (Still Moving under Gunfire) has acquired Malaysian Mobile Legends: Bang Bang team, Makan Cendol. The current roster includes:

Southeast Asia is one of the fastest-growing markets for mobile esports and with Team SMG, we are confident in building a place where we can cultivate and grow local talent in the region, starting with MLBB, and expanding to other games soon.

Kenchi Yap, CEO of Team SMG.

The MLBB team -  known as Team SMG as well - will compete in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League - Malaysia and Singapore (MPL-MY/SG) Season 5, featuring a total prize pool of RM410,000.

The team is coached by Ahmad “Bonezzyy” Syazwan Bin Anuar, and managed by Muhamd “Padel” Fadil Bin Hishamuddin.

This surprising acquisition should grant more exposure to MPL-MY/SG by featuring more Team SMG MLBB’s news.

Team SMG was founded by Singaporean singer JJ Lin, alongside former Dota 2 player and coach, CEO Kenchi Yap. Established in 2017, the team quickly rose to prominence in the esports scene after winning the Arena of Valor (AoV) International Championship in 2017.
