There is a series of contests going on in PUBG right now as a way to end the year. These contests will give the players a chance to win real-life and in-game prizes. The first of these challenges in the game asks players to share their best melee kills. However, this contest comes with a catch. In order for the clips to be eligible for rewards, the melee weapons have to thrown by the players.

Since the contest went live, players have been sharing their clips online to be considered for the rewards. As noted by Comicbook, some of these attempts are impressive while others qualify as an attempt.

The Awards event is broken down into four different weeks of contests and there will be a total of 50 winners. These winners will receive trophies, shirts, and in-game cosmetics.

The trailer released by the game developer simply shows slapping an enemy with a frying pan or another melee weapon. The challenge being that it must be done by throwing it at them.
