Hey y’all welcome
Today I’m bringing you some tips and tricks for PUBG along with five common mistakes that a lot of players including myself make in player unknowns battlegrounds. Now not everything around these mistakes is going to be covered, there are probably more pertinent mistakes that people make but these are just five that I happen to think about, let’s get started.
Looting too long
Spending too long looting the early game is an extremely important part of eventually securing a victory. If landing in a populated or large area. You should consider the benefit of taking early flights as often as possible to expedite your gearing process and move out to find a vehicle or head to the first circle. A common mistake players make is focusing primarily on gaining all of their loot from houses.
If you tunnel vision on looting you may miss out on opportunities to take over under geared players nearby. Recognize that your own looting is important but getting the essentials like a helmet vest and backpack as well as a primary weapon is more than enough to secure a few early game kills. Think of it as depriving your future enemies of gear rather than putting yourself in unnecessary danger.
If you can take out one to two players you could be fully geared and in a much better position much sooner. To put a definite end to this first portion I have to consider full level to gear and a functional primary weapons sufficient to go out and take a few early fights. Meds would be great but if you can capitalize on other players being weak you can just take theirs. I understand that RNG plays a big role in this first point so consider this an overall idea rather than a game to game strategy.
Suicide by Crate
There is no better feeling in PUBG than having a fresh AWM with a nice scope in the mid-game. However I have personally made the mistake of aggressively pursuing a poorly positioned crate and I’m often found myself in the lobby. Grates naturally attract an absolute ton of players even in a less populated portion of the map you should expect at least 1 to 2 contesting players at a spawn.
Even if you do secure the crate you will have people scanning the area to look for you. I personally search for players of the spawn is fresh enough because it’s important to relieve an enemy of crate loot if possible. I’m certainly not saying that crates aren’t worth the risk but if the overall goal is to win the game caution can be more important in that suite in 24.
For example a crate in the wheat field is an extreme risk. It’s important to note the high ground surrounding the wheat fields and the general lack of cover as well as the long sprint to safety. a player in a car could easily out position you and take your loot or alternatively snap at you from the hills. Depending on your approach you may survive but in this case a vehicle would be a necessity. One more thing to consider when approaching a crate if a player sees you coming you may be walking into the sweet embrace of the m249.
Remember the 5 Ds of successful dodge ball.
Dodge >> Dip >> Duck >> Dive >> Dodge
This rings true for squads as well. Approaching a pull squad on foot while driving a vehicle is almost certain death for at least two of your squad mates or even your whole team.
Poor Time Management
Being constantly aware of the circle is imperative to success. This may seem like a simple concept but often I will get myself into an engagement when the circle needs to be my first concern. If you get tied up in a gunfight in the late game and the circle advances even if you’ve won the fight you could have taken critical damage and the circle will end your round. If given the opportunity to delay a gunfight especially when in close proximity to an advancing circle you should consider that strategy. Considering that example moving into the circle and choosing not to engage a player there are a couple things to potentially consider.
The first thing is if the player is ahead of you he has the advantage. So trailing a player into safety before engaging would be important you have the benefit of unimpeded travel and statistically reduced risk of losing the fight should the player turn to find you. Not only that but players naturally relax when entering a fresh safe zone and can make for easy targets.
Getting stuck in the zone
Getting stuck in the zone can also be troublesome as a player at the edge of the circle have a natural advantage over you if they spot you coming late and taking damage from the circle. So avoiding alerting that player of your presence may save your life. Moving too early and playing too deep into the zones moving too early after a circle change and playing too deep into the zone or the center of the circle is counterproductive. Play style aside consider that when playing in the center of the circle technically an enemy player could approach from any angle.
This doesn’t mean I’m advocating parking yourself at the edge of the circle and only advancing as far as you need to go. although if you’re looking for high finishes consistently camping in houses and writing the circle are both despicable ways of going about padding your rank. Consider the strategy of clearing out your immediate area as you enter a fresh safe zone. This will avoid surprises from enemy players who might be lurking nearby and will give you some time to watch players who are entering the zone late.
This strategy is repeatable as the game advances and applies perfectly to the endgame as clearing out circle edges and your immediate area becomes very important as you progress through the top 10. Be sure to look for players who are moving too early and take them out something you should avoid doing yourself. Moving too early before circle advances will eliminate the benefit of that secure 180 degrees. It is important to measure the amount of time required to run to the next safe zone this is something that comes with time and experience but leaving too early will open you up to flanks.

Engaging At the Wrong Time
There is nothing more exhilarating in pub G than getting the drop on an enemy player. I think that the first reaction of many players including myself is to immediately start shooting when an enemy has been discovered. However, it is important to consider all factors before shooting at an enemy and its a common mistake in PUBG. for example if you’re moving into the play zone and the circle advances in ten seconds and you have a 30 second run ahead of you shooting at an enemy is a bad choice. You have to consider what will happen.
When you start shooting can you hit five consecutive shots at a high probability if you miss can the player make it to cover. Do you have cover if things don’t go well? Engagements can quickly end in disaster if enemy positioning leads to a prolonged fight. Every extra second in an engagement takes increased risk of intention to your area do a gun fire and usage of medical supplies that can stress your inventory later in the game.
If a player is running in a certain direction try to determine if you can trail them until they hit a patch with little to no cover. Players will panic and will often desperately search for cover or even go prone when engaged in a disadvantageous position. Similarly, if a player is running towards you wait until they are close enough that you can accurately hit five consecutive shots and where they don’t have enough time to ad s and return accurate fire. These two examples will increase your killing efficiency tremendously.
When to Shoot?
The same mistakes in PUBG can be said while sniping, it can be beneficial to wait for a player’s stop at cover rather than shoot at him on the move. The more shots you take with the kar98k the more attention you draw on yourself from surrounding players. In addition the player you’re shooting at may be able to locate you and return fire. This is obviously depending on your personal skill when it comes to sniping.
This point is especially important in squads and duos. If you’re playing with a team and spot an individual player it is of utmost importance to wait to identify the remaining group. If you drag your team into a gunfight and without visuals on all enemy players you can easily set yourself up to be flanked or taken out by enemy players you can’t see. This will definitely upset your squad mates.
