PUBG Weapon Attachment Guide: Magazines and Stocks

In the world of PUBG, guns don’t kill people, people with well-outfitted guns kill people. While it is true that any player can possibly reach victory using only their fists, your chances drastically improve if you manage to procure a firearm of some type. Generally, very experienced first person shooter players can control most hostile encounters through superior recoil control and rapid, pinpoint aiming. For the other 98% of PUBG players, outfitting your guns with a few attachments can help to level the playing field, or at the very least, make it slightly easier to land a critical shot.

For an absolute beginner, the array of attachments you can find for weapons can be overwhelming. Some attachments only work with a single weapon type, others are more versatile and can provide enhancement to several weapon types. As the gameplay in PUBG is rather dynamic, there really is no “best” attachment or set of attachments for every situation. While a long-range scope and silencer is incredibly handy to have on an assault rifle for engagements beyond 250 meters, that same configuration will put you at a severe disadvantage when confronted with an up close and personal firefight. Today, we cover all the magazines and stocks you can find in-game.

Stock Attachments

Bullet Loops for S1897, S686

Attaches To: S1897, S686

The Bullet Loops for shotguns increase the speed at which you reload the two shotguns available by 30%.

This is an absolutely essential attachment for anyone who prefers to run with a shotgun.

Bullet Loops for Snipers

Attaches To: Kar98k, Win94

What it does and how to use it:
The Bullet Loops for Snipers speeds up reloads for the Kar98k or Win94 by 30%. While the Kar98k is the preferred sniper rifle for many players, it must be reloaded one round at a time , unless all 5 rounds in the clip are used(an entirely new clip is loaded in this case). This 30% speed boost is a must for players who like to reload after one or two shots. As an added benefit, the Bullet Loops for Snipers also decrease base spread by 50%.

This attachment is not super-common, so always grab it when you see it.

Stock for Micro Uzi

Attaches To: Micro Uzi

What it does and how to use it:
As the title suggests, the Stock for Micro Uzi attaches to the Micro Uzi. It lowers vertical recoil by 20% and the overall recoil pattern by 20%. Like the Sniper Rifle cheek pad, the Micro Uzi stock also speeds up recovery from recoil, allowing you to line up your next shot faster, in the odd case where you would not be using the SMG in a full-auto mode. When paired with either of the extended magazines, this attachment turns the lowly Micro Uzi into a bite-sized angel of death.

Tactical Stock for M416, Vector

Attaches To: M416, Vector

What it does and how to use it:
The Tactical Stock will help improve weapon handling for the two firearms that it currently attaches to. A 20% reduction in recoil pattern, a 10% reduction in sway, and a 10% increase in recoil recovery are active when this stock is equipped.
