Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds guide: tips and tricks to win

It's been over a year since Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds launched into early access, and yet somehow it's still drawing the crowds, much to John's chagrin. It now has three maps, with a fourth one on the way, and an expanded weapon set too. Its popularity may be waning a little in light of stiff competition, but it isn't a surprise that it's still massively popular: Dumping…

PUBG best weapons: a complete rundown of the guns in PUBG

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has 25 guns currently available, each with its own set of scopes and attachments to glue on, which means it’s fair to say that keeping track of them all can be a little difficult. This Battlegrounds weapons guide will make that easier. The random nature of the shrinking circle means you only have limited control over what situations you’ll get into - in…

PUBG Miramar: the best places to drop, how to not die

With a few notable exceptions, deserts can be a rather unforgiving habitat for most living creatures. In Playerunknown's Battlegrounds' Miramar, this is made worse by one thing: up to 100 people are dumped out of an airplane to fight to the death. Perhaps you are one of the unlucky ones that must try to survive in this wasteland? Our PUBG Miramar guide will show you some…

PUBG Sanhok map: what to look for, how to survive

Sanhok is the newest and tiniest map in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds. It's therefore a very different experience compared to the other maps that are sprawling wastelands where death is a constant peril. In many ways, Sanhok is far deadlier as deep within the lush jungles, ancient ruins, and the extensive river system, there's plenty of places for enemies to hide and kill you without a second…

Feature: Now updated with even more ray-tracing and DLSS-confirmed games

Here’s a list of every game that’s going to look amazing on the Nvidia RTX 2080 and 2080Ti

Last week, the first of three shiny new Nvidia Turing cards finally pitched up on shop shelves - the RTX 2080. You can head over to my Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 review to find out more on what I thought of the card as a general pixel pusher, but the long and short of it is that you're probably not looking at much of a…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds adding flare guns and ranking system

It's Plunk a go-go today with many titbits of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds news. To summarise: 1) A new event gives the opportunity to earn a fantastic giant hat, the sort of enticing hat that tourists on a stag or hen weekend would instantly buy. 2) The flare gun seen in the Metal Rain event, which can call in a special huge airdrop or an armoured vehicle,…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds new event mode is all about that VSS

As a fan of any video game gun best described as "endearingly crap with a real knack to it", I am delighted that the latest temporary event mode in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds focuses on its worst sniper: the VSS. Y'know, that one with a wooden stock and built-in silencer, the one which plings lazy 9mm bullets like a child throwing pebbles, the one which is so…

Training day in Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds plus tuk-tuks, lasers and a new rifle

A bundle of new stuff has arrived on Playerunknown's Battlegrounds's test servers today. Heading up Update 21 (find the full notes here) is Training Mode, a small practice map for up to 20 players where nobody dies (even if you kill them), and there's plenty of toys to test this newfound immortality on friends and strangers alike. There's a new assault rifle - the 7.62mm MK47…

Feature: New Entry Bonanza!

Steam Charts: Crikey! Edition

I imagine in direct response to all my moaning insightful criticism, everyone in the world has upped their game and started buying some more interesting games from Steam. Such that this week's Steam Charts, with an extraordinary four new entries, barely resembles those of the last couple of months! Hurrah! And you clickbait won't believe clickbait where Playerunknown's Battlegrounds falls this week! CLICKBAIT!

PUBG Erangel: where to loot, how to win

Still wildly popular to this day, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds has now seen multiple maps release in the past year or so. However, it's rather difficult to forget the first. Erangel's Russian inspired island is full of dense forests, abandoned towns and military complexes, and so many vantage points that danger could be around every corner. This guide will show you where to loot and tell you how…

Parp parp! Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds adds a scooter and new gun

A new weapon and a cute scooter have arrived in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds overnight, bringing new ways to murder and new ways to live your best stag & hen weekend. Two folks can sit on the scooter as it whines along, so you might want to have a chugging contest to decide who rides with the bride. The new assault rifle seems a right good'un too,…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds adding training map in September

At last, the final piece of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds lore will fall into place when a 'Training Mode' map is added next month. Along with the oft-requested shooting range to test out weapons and figure out how the heck this whole 'ballistics' thing works, across four square kilometres it'll include shooting target courses, a spot to practice parachute drops, places to clamber around, tracks to race…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds new event mode makes it worse on purpose

The latest temporary event mode Playerunknown's Battlegrounds calls back to its days in early access, when the game was worse, and I can't help but suspect the devs are doing this on purpose to show how far it has come. Live until the end of the weekend, the 'Early Access Memories' mode pulls terrible tricks like putting the Tommy Gun back in care packages and…

PUBG puts down its guns, picks up many grenades for War Mode: Dodgebomb

One of my main takeaways from watching the PUBG Global Invitational, apart from disappointment, was "huh, I really should use grenades more". My psyche has clearly resonated with that of whoever comes up with the War Mode ideas for Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, because this weekend's deathmatch event hands every player 20 frag grenades while removing all their other toys. Apart from a frying pan, obvs.

Feature: DOES IT?

Does PUBG work as an esport?

There are problems with claiming that Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds doesn't work as an esport. Thousands of those problems packed themselves into Berlin's Mercedes Benz arena for the PUBG Global Invitational, whooping, cheering and clearly getting their money’s worth from their tickets. At times, I whooped with them. I still think the whole idea is fundamentally flawed.
