Best Battle Royale: PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) begins by putting you with 99 other players in an airplane where you’ll all skydive and parachute onto a huge island and have fend for yourself. The adventure begins as soon as you land: You’ll rush for supplies, armor, weapons and engage in a battle royale where the winner is the last person standing.
In order to survive in PUBG, you’ll have to navigate through safe zones as your map shrinks in size, all while avoiding random red zones where explosions go off and defending yourself against other players trying to kill you. You’ll find various loot, including military helmets, sniper rifles, energy drinks and even cars that will give you a boost as you traverse through small towns and the countryside. The action heats up once the safe area shrinks and brings you closer to other players where you’ll have to strategically find a way to overcome their unpredictable tactics.
