With the new update 0.18.0, PUBG mobile has introduced lots of features and improvements in the game. One of the highlights is Canted Sight which is very useful for many players.
Canted Sight feature was already available for PUBG PC but PUBG mobile, the feature released with the new update 0.18.0
In this comprehensive article, you will learn all about a canted sight like what it is, how to enable it, how to switch from the main scope to canted scope, best settings for it, which guns are compatible with it in PUBG mobile.
Think of the situation where you are rushing over enemies in close range, and you forget to change your higher scope like 6x, 4x to the red dot and during the fight you mistakenly tap on the scope button.
Since you have a higher scope, it will take time to scope as well as block your TPP angle feature until scoping.
Due to that, enemies can easily knock and kill you straight away. That is the point where canted sight comes in the picture.
By merely having a canted sight scope, you can quickly toggle from your Primary higher scope (i.e. 6x,4x,etc.) to canted sight (i.e. Red Dot version) by changing the scope from Main to Canted version.
What is Canted Sight in PUBG mobile?
Canted sight helps the player to switch from primary scopes to canted scope. It is beneficial when dealing with close-range combat fights. It is a secondary scope slot for weapons.
It helps the player to toggle between Primary main scope (i.e. 6x, 4x) to Red Dot type scope.
I think you might now know a little bit about it. Let’s see what are the disadvantage of using canted sight.
The Disadvantage of Using Canted Sight:
Canted sight is a beneficial feature introduced in the PUBG mobile, but there are certain disadvantages of using it. The difficulties of Canted Sight are mentioned below:
1) Blocks Left-Angle View
If you are using long-range scope like 6x,3x,etc., it will block the left angle views for the crosshair. In short, it prevents the viewability. You can understand what I am talking about by the below image.
In the image, you can see that the left-hand side view around Canted sight is blocked due to Primary Scope.
If an enemy is hiding at that position, he/she can easily see and kill you from that spot.
2) Requires More Peek Movement
Another disadvantage of using Canted sight is it requires more movement for the player to peek from a spot as compared to taking peek from the same place by Primary scope.
You can better understand what I am saying from the below images. The first image shows the Peek view from the Primary scope, and the second image shows the Peek views from the Canted sight.
You can clearly see that the Cross-hair of the Canted Sight positions little left to the original sight position.
So, when you switch from primary sight to canted sight, you will need to adjust your Canted cross-hair little right for positioning the same spot.
3) Diagonally Attached View-Sight
Since the canted sight is attached to weapons diagonally, most of the players feel uncomfortable using it.
Although some players might like the diagonal view, it depends on the player’s skills to use Canted Sight effectively.
How to Enable Canted Sight in PUBG Mobile?

- Open PUBG mobile Settings

How to Use Canted Sight in PUBG mobile?
To get canted sight for weapons, you will need to find it. It is a widespread attachment that you can find almost anywhere on the map.
Just find it, and it will automatically get equipped on your gun. Use it to toggle between the main scope to secondary scope.
The scope which you will see depends on the slot you attached primary scope and canted sight.
- If you equip only canted sight, then your Primary scope on sight will be Canted sight
- If you fit your Main scope after Canted sight then your Primary sight will be Canted sight and Secondary scope will be the Main scope you equipped.
- If you equip Canted sight after the Main scope, then your Primary sight will be the Main scope.
Your crosshair angle and weapon’s position will change a little bit as compared to the previous one, but it will not create a negative impact on your aiming performance skills.
You can see the below video for a demonstration.
How to Switch From Primary Scope to Canted Sight?
During combat fights, if you want to switch from Primary Scope to Secondary scope, you can press “Main” which will activate the canted sight by toggling, and you will get the secondary scope.
During secondary scope, your character holds the gun tilted, and you can notice it with tiled crosshair to know which scope is active right now.
To switch back from Canted sight to Primary sight, just again press the same button with “Slide” text.
You can customize the button and place it anywhere on your Layout according to your claw preferences.
The best location for the Switch button is near the “Reload” button at the bottom right.
Which Guns are Compatible with Canted Sight?
Most of the guns which have primary scope ability also support secondary scope slots. Currently, there are 21 guns which are compatible with Canted scope.
The following are the weapons which support canted sights:
|Assault Rifles||M416, Scar-L, M16A4, |

Now that you know which weapons are compatible with Canted sight. Let’s see the best settings for Canted sight.
Best Optimal Settings for Canted Sight:
Although Canted sight is similar to Red-Dot sight, there is a little change between them.
You can set the crosshair colour to red and change the crosshair style to Dot type for better accuracy. You can see the below image and set your Canted sight settings for better aiming.
1) Are Canted Sights Good?
The simple answer is “Yes”. It is better to switch scope using Canted Sight rather than using the Quick-scope mechanism.
2) When is Canted Sight Coming in PUBG Mobile?
Canted Sight is now available for PUBG mobile players. It has been released with the recent update 0.18.0 in PUBG mobile.
3) How to Switch Canted Sight in PUBG mobile?
There are two mechanisms to switch the scopes when using Canted Sight. Either you can use “Tap to use Scope” or “Tap Button to Switch Scope”. It depends on you to choose between both. In my case, I use “Tap Button to Switch Scope”.
Canted sight is one of the fabulous features which PUBG mobile developers had given to their gaming audience. Some might prefer using only one scope and change it quickly with Quick-scope.
The reason some players did not prefer canted sight is due to the button you need to press to toggle between the scopes.
There might be a chance that you disturb your aim while pressing the Change button. Hence, some player uses Quick scope to equip other scopes quickly.
It is your choice whether you use canted sight or depend only on Quick-Scope. But Canted sights are effective in my case.
I hope now you have some information about Canted sight in PUBG mobile.
