PUBG or Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds is a survival-based shooting game that has kept people hooked to it for quite some time now. People from various age groups team up to play against one another in solo mode, in teams of two or in teams of four. Whether you’re an avid gamer or just a beginner, if you have not tried out this game yet, all you need is a game-compatible device, a speedy internet connection, your friends, and these 5 facts that will help you get started on the ultimate road to “Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner”.
1. Strategizing is key
PUBG requires careful and constructive strategies to ensure the survival of the fittest. If you’re a new player, then observing the strategies of other players is a great learning opportunity. You’ll be surprised at the creative tricks people can use to knock you out of the game. So lay low and plan your next move carefully (especially during the final minutes of the game) because while mindlessly rushing to kill the enemy may entice you several times, remember that it is always an observant and silent player who is the deadliest!
2. Great Communication Platform
PUBG has five different servers that effortlessly connect thousands of players from around the globe to each other. Hence, the game serves as a great platform for communication between friends and family. Ever since the game was released on mobile phones last year, you now have the option of communicating with your family and friends through an interactive game no matter where you are.
3. There is always something new
While one might think that playing the same type of matches repeatedly will eventually get boring, the developers of PUBG ensure that this doesn’t happen. After every few months, an update to the game will bring some sort of novelty to the gaming experience that will rejuvenate your interest in the game. These updates are in the form of new maps (while there was initially only one map, the game now offers four very different maps to choose from), various gaming modes with different sets of rules, and limited time events thus providing you with continuous entertainment over time.
4. Latency Issues
Over the past year, as more and more people have globally started to play PUBG on their phones, the heavy load on PUBG servers has resulted in a high ping thus causing latency issues or what is more commonly known as lags in the game so first things first, you need to check your internet speed. Despite being connected to a good and speedy internet, lags have been known to occur thus causing severe issues during gameplay. However, Team PUBG has noticeably taken effective measures to resolve such problems. Before starting a match, it is always recommended to choose a server with the lowest ping (it’s usually Europe) for smooth gameplay.
5. Stress Relief
There is nothing more gratifying than shooting and killing scores of people in the game. The matches are quite intense and require all your concentration; you get so immersed in the game that you forget all your worldly problems. Moreover, it is not only the competitive aspect of the game but also the progressive ranking system, missions, and rewards throughout the game that bring you a sense of achievement, which is just one of the reasons why this game is so addictive.
PUBG has been around for nearly two years now, yet it has not lost its charm and addictive qualities among people. What’s more is the fact that the mobile version of the game is free, which is the real reason why there has been a surge in the number of people playing the game. So now that you know what the PUBG craze is all about, you give the game a try for yourself.
Get that Chicken Dinner!
