I guess you’ll agree with the fact that PUBG MOBILE popularised as “Battle Royale” is the best game on the market right now. With the every growing userbase and download, it’s been difficult for the game developer as well as gamers to cope up with demand, resulting in server issues as well as display lag due to high latency.
Recently, the Player Unknown’s Battle Ground (PUBG) mobile broke down resulting in server error reported by hundreds of gamer. However, the server error was later fixed by an update patch on both iOS and Android.
While we’re still facing some other challenges, we got a few nice solutions that we personally tried on our device which avoids few problems. Let us encounter one by one problem for you as well.

How to fix PUBG MOBILE Internet Error quickly?
First and foremost thing that you need to complete as pre-requisite while playing this game is to get a superfast internet connection. If you don’t have a fast connection, then you’ll face a lot of challenges like Internet Error message, display lag, unable to start the app, etc.
One of the most frequent errors every single user (including myself) encounter is “Internet Error. Please check your network and try again. Error code 154140712 (Tap cancel to exit game)”
Why do we get this Internet Error message in PUBG game?
Every time you launch the game it will first check for updates. If there are any updates available like, map, resources, layouts, etc. it will try to connect its server and start downloading. If there are no updates or successfully install, it will proceed with finding a Game server online. It also means that there are a number of gamers continuously hitting the server.
If it fails in connecting the server either cases, the PUBG game doesn’t allow you to continue to play. The only option left would be exiting the game.
How to fix the Internet Error issue?
You can quickly fix the issue by switching to a strong DNS server. Something like Google DNS or OpenDNS server which will be helping in connecting to the PUBG servers. Also, make sure that your WiFi setting is not blocking app access to the internet.
All you need is to set up your mobile ISP DNS to route through this strong DNS. The setting will be available in your WiFi connection module.
For iOS: Settings > WiFi > WiFi Name > Configure DNS > switch from Automatic to Manual and enter below DNS IP address.
For Android: Settings > WiFi > WiFi Name > Modify Network > Advanced Option > switch IP setting from DHCP to Static.
Google Free DNS IP Address
- For DNS 1: 184.108.40.206
- For DNS 2: 220.127.116.11
OpenDNS Free DNS IP Address
- For DNS 1: 18.104.22.168
- For DNS 2: 22.214.171.124
I’d strongly recommend using either of the IP address, do not mix both as it won’t work. If there are any existing IP already available, then feel free to trash them and only have either of mentioned DNS server address.
This will help in connecting the PUBG MOBILE server with stronger DNS and minimize the Internet Error message while loading the game.
How to stop Display Lag for PUBG MOBILE battle royale game?
One of the frustrating issue that you’ll find while playing the game is display lag or latency. If you’re playing the game online, the internet plays an important role for display lag.
Below are a few points to be taken care if you have frequent display lag.
1. Strong network connection
Being connected to a strong network with high-speed broadband is really important especially for the game which requires the network access to play. If you’re on mobile data, make sure that it’s not interrupting or breaks frequently.
I personally prefer to play on the WiFi connection that is connected to a stronger network ISP cable. Also, using strong DNS network to connect PUBG game servers.
2. Available RAM and Storage space
Every game is resource hungry and needs the more than enough RAM to execute the files and storage space to read-write frequently. Makes sure to kill all the unnecessary apps that are running in the background to free up some RAM space.
3. Clear PUBG MOBILE cache
I know this sound’s weird, but clearing the temporary files and cache memory of Game can actually help in avoiding the Display lag.
4. Upgrade your smartphone
There is a high probability that your old smartphone is not able to cope up with the heavy game usage. Maybe it’s time to upgrade your mobile phone to something recently available in the market with great specs.
I know even this sounds awkward. Why ‘d some buy a new phone just to play a game? But, a gamer is always a gamer! There is no answer to these questions.
How to avoid device heating issue using PUBG MOBILE?
The main reason for mobile heating the amount of RAM, storage space and battery available in your device. If you’re using the old phone which doesn’t have enough in-built RAM (more than 4GB) and having less storage space with poorly performing battery, then it’s quite obvious to have a heating problem.
Even I have a mobile heating problem while playing continuously for more than 20 mins. But, I tried a few tricks that help in minimizing the heating effect.
Below are the solutions to minimize mobile heating problem while playing PUBG MOBILE game.
1. Disconnect the mobile battery from the charging socket
Heavy games consume huge battery power, but charging and discharging the battery at the same time can result in high heat combustion. It’s always better to fully charge the device and then play for a while.
You should also avoid using Powerbank supply to mobile while playing the game.
2. Make enough RAM available
I don’t suggest playing the PUBG game on low RAM size device as this could result in poor mobile performance in the long run. But, if you really want to play, then make sure you’ve enough RAM available.
Clear the RAM usage memory by killing some other background running apps or task. Especially, social media apps like Facebook, Instagram, or any other Games acquired RAM space in the background.
The heavy games like PUBG, GTA, etc. are resource hunger games which need a highly configured mobile device with at least 4GB RAM to process the files smoothly in backend while you’re playing. If the files processing is smoother, obviously it will dissipate less heat into hardware.
3. Have enough storage space
PUBG is also bulky in size that required large storage space. The Android version of PUBG MOBILE is more than 1.5GB in size.
As explained earlier that heavy games are resource hunger, similarly they also need the storage space to grow in size and store processed files temporary until you’re playing the game.
Frequently accessing, reading and writing the progress in internal storage will result in heavy usage resulting in frictional heating make the device hotter.
Make sure you’ve enough storage space with high RAM to make disk I/O process seamless. Also, kill the unwanted background process that is interacting with storage.
