Training Mode - Practice Makes.......Permanent!
After what seemed like an eternity PUBG Corp. has decided to listen to the out cries for a training mode.
IMO they haven’t disappointed... the vast array of activities you can conduct within the training mode allows even the veteran gamer to practice.
The 2x2 map also allows space for those wanting to explore but small enough not to take all day to cross. I hope they decide to drop this map into the game, maybe not as an 100 person drop but potentially an arcade drop instead.
PC & XBox map:
Major bonus to this mode is you can’t die! Lowest your health will drop to is 1hp.
What are your thoughts?
Battle Points - A Welcomed Update!
A much welcomed restructuring of the Battle Point (BP) System this an awesome update IMO.
Previously, they offered BP rewards based only on your ranking, now they’ve restructured the system to take into account both play time and ranking.
Rewards have been restructured to equalize the differences in BP efficiency based on playing time for each Map and Mode.
Furthermore they’ve also changed team rewards to be shared, you will no longer receive 4 times the BP because you were playing alone in a squad game
PUBG Says Sorry with Free Loot
PUBG experienced connection problems and to compensate for the inconvenience players will be given freebies.
Log in and you will see a black beanie/red headphone hat along with 20,000BP waiting for you. Claim it while you can! You have until Oct 23rd 5pm PDT
My wardrobe is slowly starting to look better and this is a nice addition.
"No treats. All trick."
As the daily moot shows in Main, PUBG is goning to celebrate the holiday with a spooky new event. It looks to provide costume skins and event mode. However, detailed information has not been disclosed.
I bought Black Ops 4 and I do not have any budget anymore, so I would be happy if I could get the skin through the free event. 😂
Event Mode: Crash Carnage
Did you guys play this stupid game? it's so pretty fun tho!
PUBG launched a 3 day event consisting of melee weapons, thrown weapons and vehicles only! Needless to say it broke out into a demolition derby very quickly! Watch as we try our best to survive the onslaught of vehicles and perform a little Grand Theft Auto of our own!
Road rage is the theme of this week’s event mode where fuel and fire are king. In Crash Carnage, no firearms spawn so you’ll need to focus on melee weapons, throwables, and of course your driving skills to carry your duo to that final circle. Circles move considerably faster in this event, so loot quick, grab a vehicle, and crash your way to road warrior glory.
STARTS: Oct 4, 7pm PDT / Oct 5, 4am CEST / Oct 5, 11am KST
ENDS: Oct 7, 7pm PDT / Oct 8, 4am CEST / Oct 8, 11am KST

Sanhok Event - Forty-Fivers
What is everyone’s thought on this event??
I jumped into it for the first time last night and it was absolutely carnage..... in a good way!
Crates dropping everywhere, ghillie suites all over the joint and smashing things up with the .45 weapons 👊🏻
I think this is exactly what PUBG needs right now, something new, something different.
MAIN EVENT RULES
• 80 Players fight in Sanhok. The safe zone starts out small and is visible from the beginning.
• The only weapons that spawn are Tommy Guns, Win94s, R45s, P1911s and throwables.
• Care packages contain Vectors, 0.45 ACP rounds, Lvl 3 gear, and other useful items.
• The mode is limited to four-man squads. Auto-matching can be turned on or off (you don’t have to play as a full squad of four if you don’t want to)
The mode is limited to 80 maximum players (20 teams of four players).
• Red zones are disabled.
• Killer spectating is enabled.
• Weather is set to “Overcast”.
• Teamkilling is disabled.
How to Zoom Speed up
It is the default setting that the aiming mode / scope mode are all set to right click.If you separate it separately, you can see the zoom speed which is fast enough to feel because it goes into the scope mode without going through the aiming mode.
Assign the scope mode key separately and Use thumb grip (aiming speed +30%)
You can experience the zoom speed you have never felt before.
Weekly Seasonal Skins
About 2 weeks ago in September, PUBG introduced an event celebrating the Mid-Autumn Festival where every week players were able to acquire new skins.
I haven't been putting most of my time into PUBG recently and I regret it now as that Tang Suit Jacket is calling for me. Bad news for me is my chance to snag one is "gone forever." I'm hoping this isn't the case and that they offer another chance in the future for those that couldn't get it the first time. Getting the skins isn't all that difficult either, all one needs to do is place top 15 in any mode for a total of 5 matches in a week to claim their prize. Interested to see what other free skin events they might have in the works.
PC 1.0 Update #22
Finally, here's a great patch. The two biggest updates/fixes to come out of patch 22, is the inclusion of a quick select wheel for gear (same as the emote quick select wheel) and a new anti-cheat system. One of the biggest issues that I've had with PUBG is selecting gear/items on the fly without having to go into the inventory screen. Good stuff. Here's the link to the full patch notes.
Streamer Cody ‘Ashek’ Castellaw Loses Match due to Server Glitch
Feels bad man lol, reading about how Ashek lost a match due to a server glitch is terrible. More specifically, Ashek was the last man on his team and he had to face off against a team of 4. I think that most people would shit themselves in a situation like this. Luckily, he took control of the situation and killed all 4 enemy players. So you might be wondering how he and his team lost? Well, for some reason the server didn't register his two last kills before he was touched by storm and was killed before his kills were registered. Feels bad man. Here's the video of what happened:
FACEIT Servers with Region Lock - Hello Low Latency
So I found a really cool service while I was reading up on the lastest PUBG news. I came by an article, from Newsweek, talking about a service called FACEIT which offers region locked servers for PUBG players. The good thing is that the service is officially integrated with PUBG. On a side note, the servers will be matching people outside of the game's traditional matchmaking system, and it puts players in a custom lobby. Here are the instructions for signing up for FACEIT:
1) Go to the FACEIT website and sign up for an account if you don’t have one already.
2) Once you’re in the main dashboard, select PUBG and press the “play” button.
3) Matchmaking will begin, and it may take a while in the hours after launch.
4) Once you’re in a server, make note of its Private Lobby Name and Password.
5) Start a PUBG Custom Match and paste the Lobby Name into the search box.
6) When prompted, type the short Password.
7) You’ll be matched into the lobby and you can play PUBG as normal. All stats will be recorded for your overall rank.
PUBG is Back on Steam's Top Spot - Hail to the King👑
It's good seeing PUBG getting back to where it was originally, which is the number#1 spot on the Steam charts. PUBG has had its ups and downs, but its current its current up is making some heads turn. PUBG has survived every PUBG clone (Fortnite is a different beast in all honesty) out there, and it's going to survive the potato that is Black Ops 4 (it looks like a previous gen game). Yes I know PUBG looks like a potato, but it's a game that was made by a significantly smaller company. Why does Black Ops 4 look like a potato if it was made by one of the top AAA game devs? Our game has a lot going for it, there's the upcoming mobile tournament and there are QoL changes coming which are going to improve PUBG. PUBG is on the up and up!
Oceanic Servers Dead??
I'm from Australia, and most times it's impossible to get a Solo, Duo or Squad game, anyone else having this issue.
I know with the release of other Battle Royales that are hitting goals the PUBG should have ages ago will be taking players away, but I didn't expect it to die haha.
Probably wouldn't be a problem if PUBG implemented Lobbies starting with only 1 player instead of waiting for 40 simultaneous players before opening the Lobby, people get discouraged by 30 minute wait timers.
if you're experiencing framerate issues on Xbox One X, Bluehole is currently working on that issue
From what I've experienced, things have gotten better on the X but Bluehole still has their work cut out for them in terms of optimisation. I'm glad that Bluehole is actually trying to keep up with PUBG on the Xbox platform. If PUBG wants to beat out Black Ops 4, Bluehole has to continue to improve the QOL of PUBG.
It Looks Like the PS4 Community is Finally Going to be Getting Some PUBG Action-No Release Date Yet
Freakin finally, the PS4 community is going to be getting some of that PUBG action. So here's the deal, according to Eurogamer & the Verge, the South Korean Game Rating Board rated PUBG for the PS4. Why would a game rating board rate a game that doesn't exist? As of right now, the link leading to the PS4 version of PUBG is no longer up which gives credence to the idea that this a real thing.
On a side note, I honestly hate the whole concept of timed exclusives because it hurts the gaming community as a whole. If a game is supposed to be a multiplatform game, then it should be released as such. I get the idea of actual exclusives being tied to one platform. It's ridiculous that PS4 community hasn't gotten PUBG yet. PUBG is on every single freakin phone imaginable, but not on the more powerful PS4. Yeah yeah, I know MS has a timed exclusivity deal for the game.
I hope this rumour is true!
Here's the link to the now removed Rating Board Review:
Dr DisRespect Needs to Get Good - He Gets Owned & Gets Upset
In other news, Dr DisRespect gets upset again over getting pawned in a game. this time it was PUBG. His complaints were followed by him finishing up playing the Black Ops 4 beta, so I guess he feels that PUBG has to play like Black Ops 4. That's honestly silly because PUBG is PUBG, so get used it. There are two videos of him getting pissed. In one video he got pissed because he was killed while managing his inventory. Common man, when you manage your inventory you risk getting shot. It is what it is lol. His other blow up moment was of him getting killed by on another player as he rounded a corner... Once again it is what it is. Dr DisRespect is being ridiculous...
pubg.sh - Review your gameplay in 2D
So I came across this little gem whilst scrolling though old posts. I’ve used it to have a look at some of my recent game play and try to understand why things weren’t going my way!!!
This page is very simple to use. All you have to do is select your platform, region, input your GT and you’re all set.
Give it a crack and let me know what you think?
Hope I don't get banned 🤣
Long story short, some friends and i got pulled into the biggest gaming lobby we had ever seen.
We do not engage in these cheating like behaviors to win or ruin people's experience in the game. This was a collective effort to not use guns and abide by the rules of the man leading the group.
I think at some point we got over 25 people in the same lobby running around naked and engaging in demolition derby. As more and more people streamed, more people kept coming and misbehaving; using guns armour etc and making this already risky idea much more of a problem and ruining the game for others.
Enjoy my awful video :)
THIS IS NOT OKAY
First "Swatting" and now this. Popular PUBG streamer Dr. Disrespect had his house SHOT AT because somebody wanted to get their 5 seconds of fame on his stream. This is absolutely disgusting and it's things like this that give gamers and streamers a bad reputation. I'm APPALLED. They literally shot at his daughter's window...
I really hope they catch whoever did this. The police need to crack down on the people who are exploiting streamers and hurting people just to get a reaction, and we as gamers have to show that we WILL NOT TOLERATE this type of trash in our community. Sorry if I'm getting worked up, but this shit makes me sick to my stomach.

PUBG Drops Below a Million Daily Players
After the ridiculously high highs PUBG set last year, it’s no surprise to see their player numbers dropping off to more reasonable levels. For the first time in over a year, yesterday marked a day where PUBG did not exceed one million daily players. PUBG is still the most popular game on Steam and the predominant ‘realistic’ battle royale game, but with Black Ops 4 and Battlefield 5 right around the corner PUBG’s downswing may be just beginning.

What weapon would you rather run with on SANHOK........ Any why?
For me it’s the QBZ 🙌🏻
Now I’ve played hours and hours using the M4, I’ve stuck every attachment on it and tricked it out to the nines. Now SANHOK has landed on Xbox my head has been turned by the QBZ, it fits right into my playing comfortably and IMO lookS dead smart 🤙🏻
What your opinion on using both the M416 and QBZ95?
Good Guy PUBG Corporation Fixes The Headhunter Event Reward Glitch - Credit is Due
Originally, I wasn't the biggest PUBG fan and the same goes for Fortnite (both games have their pros and cons), but I gotta give PUBG Corporation credit for stepping up and fixing an event glitch. How many of us have completed online events to either get nothing (that's happened to me in Destiny 2 PC) or get the wrong item. At least for me, it happens a lot. For those who don't play PUBG on the Xbox One/X, Xbox had an exclusive event by the name of "Headhunter," which required the Xbox user base to make 4 million headshots in order to get the rewards.
For some reason or another, after the Xbox community reached the 4 millionth headshot many players received either an incorrect locked crate or a Raider crate. i don't know about you, but that would piss me off if that happened to me. Good on PUBG Corp. for getting those who were affected the right rewards and extra prize for the troubles (Punk Glasses). I wish that more game devs did this at the console level. We normally see these kinds of restitution in mobile games. @game devs, learn from PUBG Corp and reward your communities for their loyalty to your games.
PUBG, as a game, has truly come a long way from being an insanely buggy mess (love the funny physics and glitches) to being a game that is getting ready to be ready for Pro-level play (maybe it's already there). Y'all should be proud!
