This weekend, 16 squads face off in competitive battle royale in Katowice, Poland. But while their version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds isn’t too different from the one you might have at home, there have been some slight modifications.
Jake “ChocoTaco” Throop closed in on his final enemy in a tense PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds match. One sniper shot. Missed. Two. Missed. Three. Then Throop noticed something. “Wait,” Throop asked, “is he trying to pan fight?”
This week, portions of the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds community whipped themselves into a tizzy over charts showing that the game’s active player base has been in decline since mid-January. This comes amidst a backdrop of growing dissatisfaction with the game.

Possibly the most popular streamer on Twitch, Dr Disrespect was called out yesterday by musician Jimmy Wong for acting racist based on a series of clips compiled by the latter in which Disrespect caricatures Chinese accents and language. During a recent stream, Disrespect fired back by saying that some of his best…
Because it’s one of the biggest games on the planet right now, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is attracting a lot of players. And wherever there are a lot of players, there are a lot of cheaters.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ desert map of Miramar is a vast wasteland where one bad drop can leave you without a hiding place or weapons. A new update implements changes to the map, which had become so unpopular that players have been editing their game’s files to avoid it.
Here’s a thought: Don’t cheat. And definitely don’t cheat during a charity stream hosted by a game’s developer.
Today on Highlight Reel we have grenade tosses, trap rooms, flick shots and much more!
Gunfire, spells, commentators talking a mile a minute, momentum shifts, plays you can literally miss by blinking: there’s so much going on during esports events that there’s hardly any time to spare a thought for what’s going on behind the scenes, let alone what’s happening right in front of your eyes.
Last month, popular PUBG streamer Dr. Disrespect, aka Guy Beahm, took an indefinite leave of absence from Twitch following the revelation he’d been unfaithful to his wife. In two weeks, he’ll be back.
The space bar of Varmilo’s “Chicken Dinner” keyboard is no substitute for actually winning a round of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, but it might serve as a reminder of past triumphs, depending on how good you are.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has outlined new additions to its loot box system to go live on the game’s test server. In addition to disclosing the odds of getting different cosmetics, the patch notes also point toward a new type of microtransaction that will be making its way into the game in the future.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ desert map of Miramar is a massive sprawl of cities, mountain complexes and hidden bases. The new map’s sheer scale provides an overwhelming number of potential locations to drop into at the start of a match. Here are some of the best.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is a dangerous battle of wits and reflexes. It takes calm nerves to come out on top. Yesterday, I failed to keep my nerves at ease and committed the greatest of all multiplayer shames: teamkilling.
It was a photo finish, but the team developing PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds made good on their promise and “launched” the game before the end of 2017. During an interview last week, I spoke to Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene about what’s next.
Despite how different they are, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is, in some ways, the new CSGO. It’s the big Steam shooter du jour, and it’s stolen Counter-Strike’s realistic gun porn crown. But there’s one thing CSGO has CS-going for it that PUBG doesn’t: the ability to consume all other games, thanks to mods.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is straightforward. Dump 100 players onto a map, tell them that only one person can win, and watch them tear each other apart. It is brutal and base, violent and wonderful. It’s a game that could only be made in 2017, for better or worse.

It feels really good to be the game-winner on your team. In single-player games, you’re beating a system, but in multiplayer games you’re conquering the crowd. Whether it’s one-on-one or one-against-100, rising to the top and seizing the crown is one of the best feelings in competitive games.
