    I didn't see a thread on front page. Anyone playing this? Debating it. Seems like it'd be a great time, just now sure how good it is yet in early access.

    Absolutely I'll be on tonight. My last game we jumped at the hospital and nobody else was there. We looted the entire hospital and surrounding town over a thousand rounds of ammo still nobody showed we just said fuck it and just had to try we walked the murder bridge on foot we almost made it before getting sniped . Wasn't even made we were just dumbfounded we saw no one the entire time.

    Played a solo game, jumped at the villa which was a good ways off the planes trajectory. Had it to myself. Looted it all and got most of what I needed. Sat on a balcony until there were only 14 people left. Pretty awesome, but boring way to get top 15

    Best game ever. Never found a gun I had a frag grenade, 5 bandages, a motorcycle helmet and a First Aid kit. I made top 7 and carjacked 2 people

    it started with a frag grenade into fist fight, then once i got into the first circle a guy killed someone and left his car to raid a building i stole his car then i proceeded to to play bumper cars with a jeep till my car ran out of gas, he hunted me down rammed into my car til it exploded then saw me laying there slowly drove towards me then hit turbo to hit me i slid to the side then took off running to hide behind a broken shed, got to top 20 where a guy parked his jeep next to my bush then proceeded to fight someone and chase him on foot i stole his jeep and drove around in circles while the circle closed in til I had no health from getting shot so I bailed out of the jeep killing myself because they were not worthy of the kill.

    Got my first ever game with a hacker. guy had like 20 kills and was smashing people through walls and got me from 300 meters with an ump while i was prone in a bush.


    I really hope it remains a small problem and doesnt explode into a godawful situation like CSGO where every 2nd game is ruined by hackers.

    I've had one game ruined by hackers considering how many players are in each match and I've played in total 150 rounds I'm pretty happy with that.

    Yeah, been playing for a few months now and only encountered 2 hackers. One dude that could shoot through walls and buildings, and the other guy had something where everything was a head shot. Knocked 3 of us out of a moving vehicle at full speed all with head shots in about 1 second and we all had at minimum level 2 helms.

    Also, can someone tell me the looting in this game vs xbox? Like are some guns clearly much much better?

    Watching a PUBG streamer now, and they don't seem nearly as loot thirsty as streamers on Xbox One. It could also be just me not understanding the game or map yet.

    Never watched an Xbox streamer, what loot were they looking for that was different? Generally streamers are probably looking for a sniper (KAR most games) and any AR. Then all the attachments and enough healing to start with. They'll usually swap out the AR for a SCAR or M416, but that's just preference. With most streamers they can assume they'll have a handful of kills so they probably just know they'll pick up the rest and they go from bodies.

    Also the new map made this game a huge bit better. FPS is basically double so it's finally smooth, and the general flow of the game is much better with so many viable cities.

    The new map is that different? Is it replacing the old one? Or a rotation type deal?

    I honestly couldn't tell, fsck~

    I just know in Fortnite (since it's my only reference point) is that I'm absolutely thirsty for loot almost the entire game. Eventually, everything in the circle has been looted, so it's time to fight, but getting the gold SCAR is such a big deal.

    I haven't kept up so I'm not sure but I read somewhere they might take the old map out to fix it up when the new one is released. I have no idea if that was speculation or not. We know the old map wasn't optimized for fps or vaulting, and they should likely add more viable cities.

    Used to have my mouse DPI set at around 1600-2000. Have moved it down to 800 and have noticed significant improvements to my game play, especially when shooting at distance. Going to try and get it down to around 400.
