About PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds (PUBG)

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds was released in 2017 as a first-person shooter (FPS) game. This multiplayer battle-royale video game was developed and published by PUBG Corporation, a South Korean company.

PUBG can be played solo or with a group of people, as it supports up to 100 players. Each team has four members; if you don’t have a teammate, the server will assign some to you.

The game starts off with players dropping off a plane and parachute on an island. While landing, the players use the map feature to find the most suitable place to land. Once they land, they begin sourcing weapons and other resources needed to survive. To survive, players must eliminate any enemy on sight using the weapons provided in the game.

Since players begin the game with nothing, the first thing they must do is to fend for themselves. Therefore, you must scavenge for equipment, weapons, resources, and other healing items around the area. This is called “looting” in the game.

While scavenging the area, you may find useful tools such as a firearm, scope, or rifle. The game also provides you with several vehicles to aid your gameplay.

The game objective is to be the last man or team standing. Leveling up your playing skills and mastering a weapon can help you become the last man standing on the battlefield.
