PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is a tough game, but knowledge is power.

PUBG randomises loot placements each match, but there’s much to be gained by knowing what can spawn where, and what the chances of it happening are.

Enter ShatterNL, with an amazingly detailed map of the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds play area, complete with everything you need to know.

In the post embedded below, you’ll find two versions of the map. Between them, they highlight every weapon, ground vehicles like the stunt bike, as well as boat spawns.

The main reason you’d want to memorise this map – outside of vehicles spawn locations – is the loot spawn. Although it’s random, some areas are always going to be richer than others.

The thing is though: those red areas? They also mark high risk locations. The loot spawns are just too common for these locations to go unnoticed. It’s highly likely you’ll run into other players there. Veteran PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds players are likely to be waiting in ambush.

So now you have to ask yourself: is it worth the risk? Are you brave enough to venture in? Or does it make more sense to scope out a few of the less obvious areas instead? Then again, someone might be counting on you to do just that…

Dang, no wonder everyone loves PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds right now. So few games really give you a chance to be totally owned by human psychology.

This map has helped us countless times on PC, and it’s equally as useful on Xbox One. We have even more helpful guides like this one in our big PUBG Xbox One hub. Click through the link and take a look.
