There are ten teams of five and everyone starts with top-tier loot.…

Get rewarded for the Plunkbat weapon balance survey

The folks of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds have made one of the most significant adjustments to how the game is played, via the Weapons Balance Update (Patch 12), which re-balanced everything from damage to scope reticle to movement speeds while certain weapons are equipped.

I was driving the broke-down Dacia 1300 with two friends bleeding to death in the backseat. I feel very silly writing this, but would you like to meet up and go for a chicken dinner sometime?

Vaulting and climbing are coming to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds test servers next week

Good news, PUBG-pals, the wait for vaulting and climbing is almost over! No longer will you get stuck on a fence as your squad points and laughs at your inability to just jump over it like a person.

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds leaderboards will reset every month (at least, until release)

I’m only posting news about Playerunkown’s Battlegrounds [official site] because our resident PlunkBatters - Alice, Graham and Adam - are nowhere to be found. Perhaps they are playing right now? All of them, unwisely traipsing together across an open field together. Suddenly, BAM. Graham is down – a shot to the ribcage. Alice hits the dirt, shouting directions. Adam tries to run to the nearest…
