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.

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…

The Indian government has banned PUBG Mobile, one of the most popular mobile games in the country, along with over 100 more apps with links to Chinese publishers.

PUBG Mobile has a touchy history in India specifically. Countless news reports of teens becoming incredibly addicted to the game have filled Indian media for over two year. The game has been blamed for bad exam results, and in some extreme stories, death.

The controversy around PUBG Mobile in India has prompted calls for the government to ban it in the past, by a student association worried about its effect on education.

On September 2, India’s Interior Ministry banned the game, along with 118 other apps, citing concerns around cybersecurity, as tensions with China rise.

PUBG Mobile was one of the most popular games on iOS and Android in India.

They said the apps were “prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, Defence of India, Security of State and Public Order.”

The move follows India’s previous bans of other Chinese social media apps, including TikTok.

In a statement, the Indian government said: “The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has received many complaints from various sources including several reports about misuse of some mobile apps available on Android and iOS platforms for stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users’ data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside of India. There has been a strong chorus in the public space to take strict action against apps that harm India’s sovereignty as well as the privacy of our citizens.”

Other banned apps, via TechCrunch, include Baidu, WeChat Work, Tencent Weiyun, Rise of Kingdoms, APUS Launcher, Tencent Weiyun, VPN for TikTok, Mobile Taobao, Youko, Sina News and CamCard.

PUBG Mobile is notable though, because of how wildly popular it was in the country. In March 2019, police actually arrested ten students who were playing the game because the game had been banned in that specific region.

“Our team caught these youths red-handed. They were taken into custody after they were found playing the PUBG game,” said Police inspector Rohit Raval at the time.
