Battlegrounds Motorcycle Disaster Turns Into Surprise Squad Kill

Vehicles in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds are not your friends. They might seem like they’re on your side, but then you hit a bump in the road, and they soar and tumble with no regard for the safety of their frail, fleshy passengers. One squad, however, turned a vehicular nightmare into every PUBG player’s dream.

Lynxzyyy and his squad found themselves in a predicament when their motorcycle flipped over and rolled down a hill, to its final resting place. They tried to get it back up and running by ramming it with a car, to no avail. At that point, Lynxzyyy’s squad drove off toward another bike, leaving Lynxzyyy all alone and seemingly unarmed. Then, like clockwork, another squad showed up in a car of their own, armed to the teeth, and nearly ran Lynxzyyy over before opening fire. He took cover behind—what else—the smoking carcass of his motorcycle. “Oh my god,” he said. “I’m dead. I’m so dead.”

As the other team closed in on Lynxzyyy, his team re-appeared, seemingly out of nowhere, with a car and a fresh new bike. The enemy squad was taken totally by surprise, and two of their members quickly got run down. Lynxzyyy proceeded to play ring-around-the-rosie with the one remaining member of the enemy squad, who failed to recognize that Lynxzyyy was going for their car, not them. Lynxzyyy hopped into it, at which point the person on the enemy squad probably felt a strong urge to stand up, walk away from their PC, and reevaluate their life choices. They were dead not long after.

“You guys got fucking wrecked,” said Lynxzyyy.

Am I the only one uninterested in this game? Since DayZ there’s been a steady evolution of this game. Except instead of only owning one game you have to keep buying the new evolutions. In my head it goes something like this DayZ > Rust > H1Z1 > PUBG. I’m sure there are more and it’s more complex than a straight line.

All I know is that this game is going to go the way of all those others when another pops up that does something different.
