Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds fixing faulty region sorting

Adding automatic region sorting to Playerunknown's Battlegrounds was supposed to solve the problem of jerks disrupting games by connecting to distant servers where they'd lag around with high pings. In reality, last week's update caused more problems. Players could find themselves sorted--and locked--onto servers that clearly weren't in their local region, and in laggy games with folks thrown in from all around the world. Not…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has banned over 13 million cheaters

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has long struggled with cheaters, popping up from nowhere to headshot you from across the map and possibly through some walls. For 16 months, the developers have been posting weekly accounts listing how many players they've permanently banned for cheating – a number that now adds up to over 13 million. That's about as many people as live in the whole nation of…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds brings back map selection, kinda

On paper, the big update which hit Playerunknown's Battlegrounds in the wee hours sounds pretty good. It adds a new anti-cheat system, brings back map selection, whacks in a ranking system to climb, and enables automatic region sorting to hopefully keep distant players from lagging up our rounds. In reality, ah, it seems little it might be a little messy.

The 25 best multiplayer games on PC

Multiplayer games are the best type of games, because they're built around the most interesting components known to humans: humans. Men, women, and an awful lot of children. Internet strangers aren't always the friendliest bunch, but they can surprise you in ways that a static system can't. People form the living, beating hearts of the gaming moments I value the most. Join me, then, as…

Feature: Chilling charts

Steam Charts: Prematurely Spooky Edition

It’s Halloween (month)! I don’t know about you lovely lot, but there’s nothing I find more spooky or chilling than charts detailing what the most popular video games are in a given week. That's me, Fraser, filling in for John who is on holiday. A terrifying holiday, I bet.

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

It’s fair to say that keeping track of them all can be a little difficult,s o this weapons guide aims to make that easier. With the random nature of the shrinking blue zone, you only have limited control over what situations you’ll get…

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 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…

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…

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!

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…
