Default PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS

Anyone else been playing this? It's an absolute blast, especially in a duo or squad.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

100 man battle royale, huge island. Play solo, duo, or in squads. Everyone starts in one plane with no weapons or gear, you parachute out and have to scavenge weapons and equipment. In 5 minutes you have to get to the randomly assigned play area, or you will start losing health as the "force field" closes in. Every 5 minutes it makes the play area smaller, trying to corral everyone together until one man/squad stands.

I'm not even that big on competitive FPS, but this game just keeps me coming back for more.

It's a spin-off of H1Z1 KOTH...way too slow paced for me.

they had a free weekend a couple weekends ago, but I was busy trying to get the new Quake to run during the beta trial.

Doesn't this game depend heavily on how good your team is? You can't loan wolf it can you?


edit: i'm thinking of squad.

I've only had time to fit a few more rounds in, but I'm still having fun with it. Definitely more fun as a duo or squad, but playing solo is entertaining.

There's definitely those slower moments if you have to run across the map or don't find anyone, but I enjoy it as they just build the tension up even more when you do have an encounter.

How long does a typical game last? I see that the video is ~20 minutes.

Is spooling Whale Cancer on Steam? That's the only other person i have in my friends list from KCSR. I keep forgetting to look at the group but i've been having a blast. Made it #15 my first game, and almost had a chicken dinner on my 3rd match, got screwed and made it to #3

I'd like to hear the strategy you guys like to use. I pretty much just try to stay away from everyone on the plane jump or try to find a coastal spot to land near so i know nobody is sneaking up behind me. If possible I jump at a 90 degree angle to get as far away from the plane as possible.

Do you guys slowly make your way to the middle circle or try to get to the middle asap. I seem to have more luck just taking a vehicle and flying to the middle of the circle and ditch my vehicle far enough away. I always heard vehicles are death traps but i've had great luck with him.

Lastly, does anyone ever use any boats or have any spots they like to try to go first? I've only played solo so far. I'm so hooked.

Yup that's him, add me as well!

We generally try to find a remote location and make sure we look around as we're falling to make sure we are alone or are prepared for enemy squads.

We share resources and meet up often to trade and constantly work toward the circle, but never the middle. That's asking to get killed. Stay towards the edges so you only have to watch one side. Outside of that, keep cars handy, approach quietly, watch for open doors..

The game is super fun, I'm hooked.

I waited a while before picking it up. I watched and learned tactics and was able to pick it up and play decently well. Boy is it fun! It's addictive. You can get into games quick and there's usually like over 100k people playing so when you die you can get back into a game quick. They patch frequently and are releasing at least 2 new maps on release.

ZOMG Asians are so bad at this game. NA servers I've gotten 2nd ONCE, never won a round. Top 10 like 5 times.

Asian servers today, I got 2nd on my first solo round, 1st on my second solo round...first win. Got like 1100 BP with 7 kills. LOL. I think I'll keep playing solo rounds on the Asian servers to mine BP and make myself feel good about not sucking as bad as these folks.

not well...at all. It's not a well optimized game. Crashes a lot, possible memory leaks, my 1080 ti pushes good frames but my 980 ti struggled on high settings. Low settings it MIGHT be playable for you....which in all honestly this game is about the gameplay, not the graphics, so it's not like that would be the worst thing.
