Known issues and fixes with PUBG Mobile on Bluestacks + N beta

Currently, Bluestacks encounters an issue where the mouse will get stuck if you move it too far to the left or right of the screen. To recenter the mouse, you’ll have to toggle The Shooter Move off/on again (right-click) as a temporary fix.

If you get stuck at the Tencent Games logo screen, try waiting for 2-3 minutes. If it doesn’t load, close the app and start it again.
