For those unaware, PUBG is a battle royale game shooter game, in which up to one hundred players fight each other to be the last remaining. Players parachute from a plane onto a designated gameplay area, and can search for things like weapons, armor, health-kits, and other supplies to give themselves better chance against the competitors. Every few minutes, the playable area (map) starts to shrink towards a random location, and any players outside the safe area take increased damage, eventually getting eliminated if they don t get to the safe area in time.
