PUBG or PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has become somewhat of a cult in the short span of almost two years of its existence. And it is one of the most intense actions games out there with solo as well as team fights that culminate in multiple people battling at the same time. While there are no hard and fast rules about what is considered good practice and bad, there are some set of unofficial facts that make it easier for the players to get that coveted Chicken Dinner.

So we are going to list out a few tips that are considered as effective measures in getting kills, being noticed less, and winning matches in PUBG.

Going unnoticed

PUBG offers a lot of cosmetic options in the game that are colorful to say the least, and though these might look look on the characters it is not advisable to wear them in matches. This is because colorful outfits stick out in the terrain, and make you easier to spot for the enemies. So try and stick to clothes that make you less visible in the game.

Using single shot and burst fire

Let’s admit it, using the auto mode for firing is great at close range, but it is ineffective in longer ranges and makes you miss the target. So when firing over longer distances, always try to use burst or single fire mode. But those that have mastered controlling the spray can use it over longer ranges.

Being silent

PUBG is a game where sound is used by players to detect other players, so it only makes sense that the players themselves make less sound to give fewer hints to the enemy. Fire only when you have the full enemy team in sight and always be careful to watch the back in case other teams hear you and come to take part in the fight. This becomes crucial at the final few circles of the game.

Avoiding vehicles

Avoiding vehicles in PUBG is a good idea since they make you a more silent target and a smaller one. It does not take much for a team of four players to destroy a vehicle which makes them death machines. Sure they have their uses in covering those long distances, but sometimes it is just not worth it. Sanhok is one map where vehicles should be positively avoided since it is extremely small, and the likelihood of running into enemies is much more.

Being careful with Care Packages

Care packages come with some great loot, but they are also shining beacon for other teams as well and it more than so happens that more than one teams try to get the same care package. And whichever team happens to reach it first, becomes an active target for the other enemies to fire upon. Hence caution is always good when dealing with Care Packages, the ideal play is to wait and pick off any team that tries to get the care package first and then going for it when the coast it clear.
