You may have heard a lot about PUBG and have little idea of what PUBG really means. Perhaps you have heard some tantalizing pieces of information about it such as that it has over 1.5 million active players, the rise of chicken dinners, its unwieldy name, as well as its astronomical rise to fame. If you have a limited knowledge of PUBG, I will discuss it extensively in this article as well as give you some tips on how to install it on your Android phone.
What is PUBG?
PUBG simply means PlayerUnknown’s Battleground and is known by most people as PUBG because the latter name is easier to pronounce than the former. Thus, this game is popularly known by the shorter and easier to pronounce PUBG.
PUBG is an adventurous and challenging game. It follows the story woven around many online adventure games. Some people will be taken to an island and released there. They have to overcome series of life and death challenges that may claim the life of any participant without prior notice. The last survivor among the people wins the game.
Well, you won’t be released on the island without any assistance. No. you have to find some weapons in the island for self-defense. You must kill your antagonists and stay away from danger as much as you can if you want to entertain any hope of being the last man standing.
In each match in the game, some approximately 100 people will have to fight each other. Some of these people may fight as a team while some people are lone rangers, fighting their battles singlehandedly. The winners of each match will get a prestigious title known as “winner winner, chicken dinner.” This is in addition to a currency that you can use for purchasing cosmetics items.
There are two winning strategies in this game. You can either hide until you have the perfect time to attack your opponents or match them battle for battle without any thought of hiding away from them.
If you opt for the former option, you will get a little reward for your efforts at the end of the game. The fact is that the reward is simply negligible. If you decide to hide until the appropriate time to strike, you may expose yourself to attacks as well. Your choice of fighting technique depends on the ammunition at your disposal as well as the playing style that you are comfortable with.
Everyone on the island is given an equal platform to start without giving an undue advantage to anyone. Nobody starts the game with ammunition but each player has to fight for ammo, guns, first aid kits, and the rest by scavenging in the buildings.
If you are successful in your hunt for a weapon, you may find a couple of weapons that may include a short gun or any other short range weapon. On the other hand, you may also find a long range rifle fully equipped with a performance-enhancing magnifying scope. The weapon at your disposal determines whether you want to play it safe and hide until the appropriate time to come out of hiding or charge at other players while you put your life on the line.
As I earlier mentioned, hiding is the better of the two available options. Since you only have a single map to guide you, it is mandatory that you fight your way across wide areas. While fighting your way and shooting other players, there is an increased chance of someone hitting you from hiding. So, it is pretty risky to go out with a blasting ammunition.
Nevertheless, you must be cautious if you decide to hide. The game is designed with a feature that liquidates a player or players that are not moving towards a specific location through an electric field. At this moment, you are at higher risk of being killed because other players in hiding will also endeavour to move towards the assigned location simultaneously, exposing you to contact with many people, many opponents.
It is also not a wise decision if you decide to hide while the game is on only to dash for safety at the eleventh hour, that’s equally risky. The safest and best method is to hide when it is reasonable to do so and use the opportunity to hide to your advantage. This requires that you have a comprehensive knowledge of your environment: where you may head towards and the potential locations of your enemies. In a nutshell, this is a brilliant game that will test your survival skills to the limit.
