Hello Chicken Eaters! In this post, we are going to share a complete Tencent Gaming Buddy guide that will explain you everything; from how to download to requirements, from requirements to game’s settings, and all the controls settings. Tencent Gaming Buddy was released in May 2018 and it’s still in beta. So you may experience some glitches. But if you have a good PC, then you will be able to enjoy PUBG mobile at extreme settings without lagging, on your PC. So, let’s get started: –

Quick Navigation: –

How To Install Tencent Gaming Buddy To Play PUBG Mobile On PC?

Well, there are a variety of Android emulators available in the market, but you will get the best performance on TGB only. To download Tencent Gaming Buddy On PC, follow these steps: –

  • Visit The Official Website
  • Hit The Download Button
  • Install The Package On Your PC
  • Follow On-Screen Instructions

Step 1.) Visit the official Tencent Gaming Buddy Website; https://syzs.qq.com/en/

Step 2.) Click on the download button to save installer file on your PC. The size of the installer would be around 9 MB.

Step 3.) Once downloaded, head to the directory/location/folder where you save it. Double click the installer package and give the permission to Windows to install on your machine.

Step 4.) After it, you will see the game logo and install button. Hit the install button to start downloading Tencent Gaming Buddy On PC.

Tencent Gaming Buddy Total Download Size: –

Well, it did not mention the total size of the file. But we monitored the data usage; it consumed around 3GB of data. Total Size – Less Than 3 GB(Approx.).


The official website does not have details on this topic. But I am going to show you my details; I played it on my Dell Laptop(8GB RAM, Direct X Version; 12, Intel HD Graphics 630/4GB, Nvidia GEFORCE GTX 1050 Graphics/4GB, Processor Speed – 2.8Ghz, Turbo Boost – Up to 3.7Ghz). It was running at 40-60FPS. Let me show you the usage: –

Tencent Gaming BuddyWhen running at 50-60 FPS, it was consuming 50%+ GPU, 17% of CPU(Total-2.8GHz). In short, it should work fine on a PC having up to 4GB of RAM, 4GB of Graphics Card, and processor speed should be around 1.8GHz. It may not work on a dual-core PC(at high settings, you can set it to low).

Tencent Gaming BuddyFPS – How Much FPS You Can Expect On Tencent Gaming Buddy?

It depends on your PC configuration. For me, it was rendering 50-60FPS most of the time. How to check FPS? Open the Tencent Gaming Buddy -> Play -> tap the menu button -> show FPS. Once enabled, it will show you FPS at the top-left corner.

Game Settings

You can change the default game settings(720p, auto-display) from the settings menu. Tap the menu -> settings -> game settings -> there you can change resolution from 720p to 1080p or Ultra HD 2K. And you can set the display on HD, auto, smooth, and balanced mode. Keep it low if you have a low-end PC.

Control Settings – Tencent Gaming Buddy Best Settings

Tencent Gaming BuddyOnce you are all done; after installing and signing-in, it’s time to change mouse sensitivity. With default settings, it’s difficult to aim or look around. Go to the PUBG Mobile settings in Tencent Gaming Buddy -> sensitivity -> under the camera section -> change the sensitivity(that suits your game style);

  • 3rd Person – No Scope, 2x Scope, 3x Scope, 6x Scope, red-dot, holographic, and aim-assist
  • 1st Person – Same

Here’s my settings info that I am using in Tencent Gaming Buddy: – Tencent Gaming Buddy

  • 3rd Person No Scope – 42%
  • 2X, 3X, 4X, 6X, 8X – 4%
  • Red-Dot, Holographic – 7%

Well, it actually depends on how you control the mouse. If you have good control over the mouse, then increase the sensitivity. How does it work? Basically, reducing the sensitivity makes the look around movement tight and increasing the sensitivity makes the look around movement light. If you are a rookie like me, then try my settings configuration.

I would recommend you to play the training mode before you start the match with teammates. In training mode, pick all the scopes and experiment with all the guns. This is the only way to choose the best settings.

Game Engine Settings: –

Tap the menu at the top right corner of the emulator’s window -> settings -> engine. For the best performance, set it to:-

  1. Rendering – Direct X+(High Stability, But high CPU Consumption)
  2. Enable the render cache
  3. Enable rendering optimizations(if you have selected Direct X+, OpenGL+)
  4. Set anti-aliasing to close or ultimate(On ultimate if you have high-end GPU)
  5. Set memory, the processor to auto
  6. DPI – 240

Save and Restart.

Signing-In Problem

Tencent Gaming Buddy does not support Google Play Log-In. You need to connect with Facebook or Twitter or play as a guest. But if you have already an account and it is connected with Google Play, then you will have to link the game to Facebook or Twitter first in order to play with that account on PC. And it’s easy. Open your mobile -> PUBG Mobile -> Settings -> Basic -> in the basic menu, at the top-right corner, tap the + icon to link with one more service. Once done, head to the Tencent Gaming Buddy and log in with Facebook or Twitter.

It merely takes 5 minutes.

The highlight of this version is night mode. However, it comes randomly in Erangel map(like rainy mode in Snahok). And there are new items also. The update also added one more gun(QBU DMR), one more vehicle(Rony Pick Up Truck) to the sanhok map. Additionally, Halloween theme is also live. The game’s size is 1.5 GB(Without Miramar, Snahok map). You will need to download them; Miramar’s size – 329 MB. Sanhok – 83MB. Happy Halloween!

    • @Arpit Singh What Windows version are you using? I guess, On Windows 10, all the drivers get the update automatically. I am not sure about other versions. You can Google it.

  8. I have been playing this game since very long, back then it was a very good game to play and it was enjoyable, but after more and more update it is getting worse and worse, so many glitches, lag and also there are so many hackers, last but not the least: the 180° glitch, if this glitch does not gets fixed in the coming update, i will quit PUBG Mobile and suggest others not to play as well. It’s not a game anymore, it’s a headache. Everytime i play i can’t enjoy the game anymore like before.

I got 80fps on far cry 5 ultra, 60fps AC Odyssey high, BUT 10-60 fps on a fkin mobile pubg!? really dude!? this emulator is a joke. I mean the fps are too damn fluctuating, and so much stuttering

  12. please please solve my problem in keyboard every thing is fine but aim or zoom not working when i click it also fire

      • Hello everybody, if you are having the trouble with the right key, then you are not alone. Most of the players are getting this problem after the latest update. If you need help or want to report the error, you should visit the official TGB Google Group.
        The default way they have given is: –
        Go to PUBG settings and reset the controls.
        Then go back to the Keyboard Mapping screen and check its resolution. The resolution should be the same that you have set in the settings(settings -> game -> 720p or 1080p. If you are still getting this problem, you may need to write the problem to devs. Thanks!

  14. Also i can download other games in this emulator.

    • @Kapil Hi, there are also many other players who are facing this issue. As of now, there is no solution(I’ve tried all; clearing cache, reinstall, manual installation). You can either wait for an update or play on another emulator; Bluestacks!

  22. Player is not aiming during match. It worked properly in First Match but now, its not working. I changed key but still not working.

  23. I am installing official tencent emulator, bit the login pages gives only 2 options, login with Google or Facebook.. While on mobile my pubg account is connected to twitter. Is emulator and pubg login same? Then how can I connect to emulator via twitter ??

    • @Ali there would be a more button on the login screen, tap there and check for twitter. Or simply open the game in mobile and link to FB and then open emulator and login with FB.

  24. Playing this on both phone and TCBG emulator is great. However… being told that my Facebook account has been suspended because i play on an emulator is B.S. Me i dont need high graphics to enjoy id rather have smooth play the high visuals. the amout of hacks that are available do make for some bad player and game play. As with any compatition game there are bound to be both good and bad players. over all its great to make friends and meet good players. Join a clan with active players though! #gamehoy

  25. Better than any other emulators when considering gaming. But this still in Beta and Lagging and Buzzing is happening for some users only after gaming for an hour or some.

  26. Hi,I have a question.
    I have tick the option to shot with left click but it doesn’t seems to work for my emulator.
    what should I do ?should I click on the shot button everytime I want to shot ?

  27. Is there a way to get in the back seats of a vehicle with no driver? For example, I want to just sit in the back seat of a Jeep. I know you can hit c to change seats, but that seems limited to the front two seats if there is no driver.

    • You can not config W/S/A/D keys because these are reserved and can not be changed. I am using the X key for sprint, works fine for me. ?

  28. how to set up the smart 720p keymapping in normal 720p keymapping(especially the “F” key)?……….my smart keymaping is not working from 0.7.0 update and its not fixed yet……pls reply ASAP!

    • @Rizzusyed The default key is F for the drive, revive, opening door, pick-up, and parachute. Tap the keyboard button on the right side menu of TGB, it is denoted with a star.
