Despite being released over two years ago, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds remains a fan-favorite game and is still producing some of the most viral gaming clips – here are the top 5 PUBG videos for June.

5. Out of nowhere

ChocoTaco is no stranger to PUBG fans, the Twitch streamer spends most of his time playing the classic battle royale game. While other streamers deviate between Apex Legends, Blackout and Fortnite, ChocoTaco is one of the most committed to PUBG.

With fame comes the inevitable stream-sniping though, something that ChocoTaco will be all too used to by now. Fortunately for him, his stream-snipers seem to be somewhat of a kind bunch, choosing to have fun with him rather than trying to ruin his game.

As Taco was leaving the Sosnovka Island to get to the mainland, a stream-sniper jump infront of him, back-flip and all, before landing infront of him. If it wasn’t a stream-sniper then it was a huge coincidence!

4. A shot Shroud would be proud of

No famous Twitch streamer here but Redditor “Alwayshayden” pulled off an incredible shot with the Kar98K. While in Sanhok’s Bootcamp, the player heard a car driving past and after patiently waiting for the right moment, and adjusting for an annoyingly placed tree, found the perfect shot.

3. ChocoTaco trying new things

We said ChocoTaco plays a lot of PUBG and he apparently plays so much that he needs to find new ways to get those chicken dinners.

Winning games in the traditional way is no longer enough for Taco and in this particular game, he devised a cunning play to kill someone with a gas canister.

After nearly killing the last man alive, he laid several gas cans by a tree before baiting him to come there. As the enemy did he shot them allowing him to get the win by “Gas Can explosion”.

2. Waiting to die

We’ve all been there – don’t quite parachute right, somebody else gets the vehicle before you and you end up playing cat and mouse until your inevitable demise. Well, not this time.

During an official PUBG Korea competition Lavega thought they had trapped a member of OP Gaming. Two Lavega players surrounded them with vehicles with only a tree to protect them from death.

After some smooth moves to avoid the hit, the player was eventually rescued by a teammate, somehow surviving.

1. 464-meter sniper shot

PUBG console players will appreciate how much harder it is to land outrageous shots on Xbox or PS4. This didn’t stop XMAN2YMAN though, who landed a ridiculous 464m shot.

Someone threw a controller with this shot. Seriously my greatest shot ever! from r/PUBGXboxOne

Not only that, they did so against a moving vehicle. While in the trees in the south-westerly side of Erangel, they noticed a vehicle far in the distance not too far from Pochinki.

After lining up the shot, they did the unthinkable…

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.
