All PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, and battle royale players in general, want to know how they can improve at the game. These advanced PUBG tips may just help.

PUBG players, from beginners all the way to pros, will roll their eyes when the inevitable post pops up listing ways to improve. While a lot of these can be repetitive, and frankly not helpful, sometimes advice comes along which can be very useful.

One player shared such a post where he listed 10 ways for even advanced players to improve. It might well be a relatively long list, but all of them were detailed and could genuinely provide even experienced players a tip or two.

My top 10 tips for experienced players… let me know what you think! from r/PUBGXboxOne

Get better at PUBG

The video comes courtesy of harviesGG who plays his PUBG on the Xbox One. The game, of course, runs very differently on console compared to PC but the tips are certainly transferable.

You can see all 10 suggestions for yourself, but there are few that stand out and are worth a special mention.

Stationary when shooting

It might seem a relatively obvious tip, right, but it’s amazing how few players actually do this. Of course, you make yourself more vulnerable but if you’re shooting better, you will win the fight – rather than relying on a spray and pray.

Enemy in middle of the screen

This one is definitely worth paying attention to. When playing TPP, try to keep your enemies location is the center of the screen. This way, you can snap to them when ADS – it also throws off your opponent when you’re on a dime.

This is particularly effective when playing on console where aiming is significantly harder.

Switch between FPP and TPP

The advantages of playing in TPP are clear. However, there are situations where switching to FPP is actually beneficial.

These are mainly in close quarters combat where the aim function is more effective. The comparison between the two aims in the above video shows this perfectly.

Optimal parachuting

The relatively new parachuting system in PUBG is more complex than the older one. It is no longer as intuitive to get to the ground in quick time.

The best way to get down as fast as possible is to exit around 800 meters away from your target. From there, your target speed is between 195 and 205 km/h.

Just before getting to the ground, you want to maximize you descend speed so you get a small boost when the parachute opens. This will get you to the ground first and more importantly to a gun before anyone else.


Blatant PUBG cheater gets banned by a dev live on Twitch

A known cheater in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds managed to get hit by the banhammer while he was streaming live on Twitch, creating a wave of cheers among community members.

The Twitch account under question goes by the name of ‘vesprine,’ but the player himself is widely known in PUBG lobbies and online communities for perpetually making new accounts just to use cheats.

“He keeps resurfacing. Same guy over and over. He tries to join Plausible and gets insta-banned,” Reddit user ‘The-Basic-Bro’ said. “He needs a hardware ban at this point. He legitimately cheats non-stop… He has joined looking for squad groups on Reddit and the last two times I have called him out and disgraced him and had him banned.”

While some players want to see more stringent action taken against the player, PUBG Community Manager who goes by ‘Hawkinz’ did his part to stymie the cheater’s effect on the game.

PUBG has come a long way since its launch, but hackers have still been a major problem.

During one of his streams, the player had resurfaced to show off more PUBG gameplay supplemented by the use of in-game hacks.

In the middle of his broadcast, he got a notification in PUBG that read: “Restricted Account – Your session will be terminated due to use of hacks.” Though not much has survived the Twitch account since he was banned, a screengrab by user ‘701dirty’ immortalized Hawkinz’s incredible response as the moment played out.

According to 701Dirty, the ban happened shortly after over a hundred people clipped and reported the streamer while he was playing.

“A few hours later over 100 people clipping and (saying) they got one of his accounts,” 701Dirty wrote. “I saw him have two accounts banned after matches and he tried logging into several already banned accounts… crazy.”

Cheater banned in real time from PUBATTLEGROUNDS

Since its launch, PUBG’s servers have been swarming with hackers that have put a damper on the once-dominant battle royale.

The developers have issued multiple ban waves since the game’s launch in 2017, but are still combating the prevalence of cheaters years later.

Unfortunately, unless more meaningful action against PUBG’s hackers is taken, players like vesprine are going to continue to ruin matches, get banned, then reappear under another name.
