Several guides spread over the internet guide novices to choose more isolated places when jumping from the plane, seeking to avoid direct combat and hide during most of the match, focusing on the result.

It is true that in this way you can get far. But that also means you will gain almost no combat experience, which, in the final moment, is essential for victory.

Our tip is to learn to combat first, and only then seek safer loot route strategies and focus on positioning.

For this, enter training mode and get the hang of it with some weapons. Soon after, play falling matches in busier locations and look for disputes with other players. At first, you’ll die a lot, but over time you’ll adapt and won’t be limited to spending a whole game in hiding until someone eventually finds you.

Loot means to collect weapons and other equipment available in buildings scattered around the map. While your initial focus is on getting better at combat, it’s no use going out with just a pistol to hunt for confusion in an area full of players.

Dedicate the first few minutes of each match to get at least one decent primary weapon and some protective gear that help with striking, such as vests and helmets. Having these advantages is essential to win combats in PUBG.

3) Only shoot when you are sure of the kill

Knowing when to start a fight is crucial. In PUBG, you can be shot down in a matter of seconds, so try not to give your opponent chances to react or another player to appear to finish you.

If you are in doubt about your shot because you are far from the enemy or because you have equipment you are not used to, the ideal is to avoid confrontation. Also, always try to have the positional advantage and the certainty that you will shoot to kill. When you learn to choose your fights well, you will return to the lobby less.

Energy drinks and syringes are other items overlooked by beginners, who usually don’t even understand how both work.

they serve for raise your character’s energy meter, which is just above the health bar. While there is energy in the bar, your character gradually recovers health, in addition to being able to run faster, which helps a lot in combat.

Another time when the energy bar is essential is inside the gas. Extra health recovery lessens gas damage. The extra speed can be the difference to get to a safe zone.

Vehicles help a lot with rotation in PUBG, especially when you’re far from the safe zone. However, the powerful ones are extremely noisy and end up attracting opponents. One of the ways to reduce this noise is to avoid the throttle.

Ever enjoy the momentum of the car on the descents, traveling a good distance without having to step on the accelerator and make unnecessary noise. Furthermore, avoid roads that pass through the middle of cities and generally speaking, stop just before your destination and complete the journey on foot.

Our tip is to focus on training. Choose some weapons you like and look for them in matches. That way, over time, you will get used to it and it will be easier not to mess up when hitting opponents.
