PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is an unusual blend of competitive shooter and survival sandbox, building on Battle Royale mods, and not everyone is adjusting to this genre blend successfully.

It’s all too easy to get into a PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds match and find yourself dead on the ground within seconds; unless you’ve already teamed up with friends, everyone is hostile and you are just a little roadbump on their highway to glory.

But never fear: Arekkz has put together a video with 17 hot tips for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds combatants. Some of these tricks and techniques may be new even to quite experienced players. The list includes:

  • tips for safely and quickly parachuting into the action
  • inventory shortcuts
  • how sound works
  • third-person shooting secrets
  • understanding armour
  • advanced driving techniques
  • using grenades
  • sniping via ironsights
  • staying alive while using consumables

Tune in above for all the details on these PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds tips.

How are you liking PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds? It’s kind of surprising no major developer or publisher go int with this evolution of the hot survival sandbox scene before an indie did. Then again, it’s probably kind of a hardcore thing, given the learning curve and difficulty. Definitely not focus test friendly.
