Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is a highly competitive game in which the difference between victory and defeat is in the smallest detail. That’s why even the most familiar players can benefit from some more advanced tips to get the most out of the game’s mechanics and scenery.
1. Stay on the Edge of the Circle;
IN PUBG, you should always reduce your chances of getting caught on your back. So being close to the middle of the circle makes you vulnerable on all sides, including the side you came from. So a good strategy to avoid this is to stay on the edge of the circle as if you were “with your back to the wall”, so you just have to worry about what’s in front of you.
This rule, however, is not absolute and you should be aware of possible latecomers who are on the gas. Also, you should analyze the terrain and see if waiting for the ring to close will leave you exposed in the open.
In general, staying within the circle limits is a strategy that requires a passive and patient game style, but offers a lot of security without having to camp the whole game. The reasoning is this: imagine a top 10 situation where the circle is already small. Running into the middle of it would only leave him exposed to the players around. However, some exceptional situations related to terrain, airdrop or etc, could make the option more attractive. It is this mentality that you need to take for the whole match.
2. Never open Doors;
This tip seems simple but it will make all the difference in your gameplay. In PUBG, most players open doors as if there is no chance of someone pointing a gun on the other side. Do not do it.
Whenever you need to open a door, run or jump over it and press F. So when the door is open you will not be in the firing line. Even if there is a player staring at the door, chances are high that you shoot the shots and find out the exact location of it.
3. Vehicles Damage;
If you want to jump from moving vehicles without taking damage, just drive close (almost to the side) to any obstacle in the left of the car. So when you get out of the vehicle, your speed will be canceled immediately when you hit the obstacle and you will be safe.
This method can be used with anything from trees and walls to other vehicles. However, use it only in the necessary situations and not to be badass . Generally, the necessary situation is when you are being targeted within the vehicle and the best option is to fight. At that point, jump off the car and return the shots. The chances of your opponent continuing to shoot in the empty car is very high.
The tactic is even more interesting in doubles or squads, when only part of the team jumps and another continues in the car, which can confuse the opponents a lot.
4. Take out Airdrop items even if you do not want them;
If you took the risk of getting the plane drop and no item was useful, do not leave them in the box. Take them anyway and then switch immediately to the previous items. This will cause you to empty the airdrop and leave the dropped items just behind the box.
That way, opponents who come to loot the box will only find the items if they look around (which is very unlikely, after all, no one wants to be near the airdrop for long). In addition, even if they see the guns on the ground, they will think that the box has already been lootedand that the equipment found is inferior.
5. Use Doors to climb on Roofs;
There are several points on the maps, especially in Erangel, where you can use doors as “steps” to climb on the roof of houses. This tactic gives you access to more unpredictable positions as well as opening up more movement options.
Having the option to climb on roofs has many benefits, among them:
- Depending on the height of the building, you can jump from one roof to another.
- Confuse opponents who think you’re on the top floor of the house.
- You can use the roofs as escape routes or hideout when you are low on HP or with lower weapons.
- In Pochinki, in Erangel, you have a privileged view of the surroundings, besides allowing fast movement through the houses.
6. Close the doors!
Another simple tip that many players still do not do: lock the doors when leaving or entering buildings. It may sound like little, but making your opponents waste time getting into lootedplaces makes all the difference. Also, by closing the doors you can easily fire players to enter your building behind loots while you receive them with bullets.
7. Give Preference to the short-range Sights;
Many players have doubts about which aim should keep equipped, the short or long distance. Whenever you are out of combat, the aim to be equipped is that of short range. Remember that the most dangerous is always the opponent that appears closer. If you are shot from a distance, you will probably have time to equip the correct scope.
Imagine this: you are running with your rifle with an equipped long range aim and suddenly a nearby opponent appears. Either you’ll need to beat him in the hip fire (without aim) or you’ll need to change your aim at the top of the hour. Neither option is appealing. Therefore, always keep the short range sight ready, after all, if a distant opponent appears, you can have time to change or even use the same aim to shoot him down.
8. Learn to use the Quick Scope;
In PUBG, the accuracy of your shots is greatly affected whether or not you are aiming. Hitting shots with snipers, for example, is very difficult if you do not open the scope first. However, in the heat of battle, you often do not have the time to open the scope and shoot slowly, even more so because the opening time varies depending on the equipment.
For these moments you can try a quick scope , which is nothing more than to open the scope and shoot immediately afterwards. To do this, simply press the right button and LOGO NEXT left. Your aim will open quickly and the shot will be shot.
Keep in mind that the quick scope shots are not 100% accurate (the bullet does not go where the target points), but the margin of error is much lower than if you did not open the scope.
As stated earlier, every small advantage in PUBG influences the end result. If you watch livestreams of high level players, you will see the application of all the tips mentioned in that article whenever the situation demands. So incorporate these plays into your gameplay and you’ll see progress.
