Feature: Stats and Plunkbats

PUBG weapons: damage and weapon stats, best weapons list, including G36C, Skorpion, and more

Keeping track of the vast array of guns in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds is one of the largest contributors to the game's steep learning curve. PUBG features nearly forty guns to choose from, each with specific stats relating to damage, range, recoil, bullet drop, and much more - and that's not even considering the enormous range of attachments you can use to augment all those weapons. In…

PUBG Erangel: where to loot, how to win

For some, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds's Erangel is still the best map in the game. Maybe it's because it's the one they're most used to, or perhaps Miramar is too big, Sanhok is too small, and Vikendi is too snowy. If you're diving into PUBG for the first time, then this is probably the best map to start out in. Erangel's Russian inspired island is full of…

PUBG Vikendi map tips, best locations for loot, drop locations

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

In Playerunknown's Battlegrounds' Miramar, the unforgiving desert 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 of the best places to drop in order to obtain the best loot, but…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds launches snowy map Vikendi

It shall be a white Christmas in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds this year, as the snowy new map Vikendi has launched on the main client. It's a mid-size map, 6x6km, with exciting spots including a cosmodrome, castle, and dinosaur park. Here's a little festive secret for you: all those assault rifles, pistols, shotguns, grenades, bulletproof vests, and boxes of ammunition are lovingly hand-placed for you by Father…

PUBG Sanhok map: best places for loot, where to drop

Sanhok is the tiniest map in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds. As a result, it's a very different experience compared to the other maps in the game. That said, it's still a deserted island location where death is a constant peril. Therefore Sanhok is far deadlier in many ways, as deep within the lush jungles, ancient ruins, and the extensive river system, there's plenty of places for others…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is off to snowy new map Vikendi tonight

Update: Vikendi is now live on the test servers and HAS A DINO PARK? The fourth map of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds will be a snowy affair named Vikendi, developers PUBG Corp announced tonight. It's a mid-sized map, bigger than Sanhok but smaller than Erangel and Miramar, and brings new tricks including footprints you can follow. Vikendi is due to hit the Plunkbat test servers later today…

Feature: How a Japanese comic gave birth to a video game genre

How Battle Royale went from a manga to a Fortnite game mode

When you hear the words “battle royale”, most people in 2018 immediately think of the trigger-happy Plunkbat or the cheery Fortnite. But a decade ago, those same words only evoked bleak battles between crying teens, fought on the black-and-white pages of a manga -- a Japanese comic. Art doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Creators absorb ideas and translate them to different mediums, in a web…

Feature: Chart it good

Steam Charts: I Was On Holiday Last Week Edition

I, Alice Bee, have returned from a week off and everything has changed. Matt is in the office now, and complained about having to get up at 8.15am. This complaint made me furious and I am telling everyone. My desk has been moved. There is no milk in the fridge. I am confused, and I can't remember all the HTML codes to write this very…

Steam Charts: The Other Alice Edition

Hello! This week John is doing a super secret special mission (playing a video game) so I, one of the other Alices, have taken over the Steam Charts. I am afraid that I do not put as much time as John into constructing elegant jokes that are several layers deep, though, which means you might even be able to tell which games are charting. I…

Executive Plunk producer Taeseok Jang took to Steam to thank players for their “continued support,” give details on improvements to performance and optimisation, and to explain what’s still to come regarding matchmaking, anti-cheat solutions, and the game's 2019 roadmap.

Aw for… Plunkbat’s 50v50 event mode delayed by ‘critical error’

The lads are going to kill me. I promised them the stag party of a lifetime, a fifty-lad pub crawl from Zharki through Georgopol then a boat ride to Primorsk and a dune buggy race to Mylta, closing by breaking into Mylta Power in search of radioactive goop to chug. I've had special tour t-shirts printed. They've all booked this weekend off work. And now,…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds first 50v50 event start tonight

When two stag or hen parties chance upon each other down Espionage and merge, the ground trembles at the might of their combined banter and windows the length of Victoria Street rattle to their roars. I cannot begin to imagine the consequences if twelve parties should join forces. We'll find out this weekend in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, as the stag & hen battle royale will tonight…

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.

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…

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,…
