    Actually Fortnight is cross platform too. It was even all platforms at once one day, but it was on accident. They're not allowed to let the consoles play with each other.

    Made top 3 last night. Nice part about playing on XBox is that almost all players are relatively new to this type of game. I usually wait for games to be out a couple months before I buy them, so it's nice to be on the front end of a learning curve. This is also just a different type of game than most.

    It doesnt look as good as the PC videos I've seen and I've had it fuck up on me a couple times. I made to 10 once and was driving around in a buggy. All of a sudden the game lagged out on me and when it came back, my buggy was flying through the air like 300 feet up. Died upon impact.

    People on console are so bad without aim assist. If I’m landing in a hot area I go straight for close up kills.

    Yeah, the 30fps cap sucks for console users.

    I'm one of these terrible console people. Tips for being better in combat beyond just practice?

    For the record, I'm not terrible at the game as a whole because I play super cautious. But when I do get into gun fights I lose probably more than half the time.

    A lot of it is slowing down. With aim assist it’s easy to flail the stick around. Learn when to hip fire, whatever is just holding LT, and aiming down sights.

    The thing that helped me the most is engaging more often. If you don’t have practice shooting and getting into a fire fight you’ll probably lose. Also, been using Auto fire on my ARs more often. I only use single shot when my target is 100m or further. If I can see them clearly in my Red Dot (fuck that holo) my gun is on Automatic. Only exception is with the M16. I never use Burst. I just mash the “shoot” button as fast as I can.

    It's insane that this game doesn't have a DM mode or even a target practice yet. With all the money they've made, a single dev can complete either of those in a week...

    Abusing 3rd person peeking around corners, land at the school you will only get better fighting instead of trying to survive. Consumables are your best friend , learn to love the hold your breath feature , hip firing is huge in the game , and frying pan in your savior

    Hi hello yes this is me. Pretty consistently make top 20 but rarely win. Might need to play super aggressive and not go for wins the next week or so to get better at aiming.

    I think the reality is that whoever has the upper hand on intel usually wins firefights. I need to work on holding my fire until I have a perfect chance rather than giving away my position

    Just started playing the other day and so far so good, I got 3rd once and usually end up around 30th, I've noticed usually the first person to spot the other wins the gun fight 9/10 times. I'm still on the OG xbox one so it gets jumping once and a while but not too bad.

    My strategy is usually avoid people right away and try to gear up, then I will slowly make my way towards the middle of the circle, Still trying to get used to the menus and equipping stuff and making sure I turn the rifles on to full auto. Lost a few gun fight cause I was stuck on single shot and just got mowed down.

    If anyone is interested hit me up hawkeye2323, I've only been playing solo so far but I have a feeling it might be funner in a squad or duo.

    The game's "unfinished" nature is part of it's charm, but last night I was in the top 6 and in a great position, tons of good weapons and health packs. I try to crouch and the game glitches out and puts me prone underneath the floor. I couldn't get up or move and eventually the circle closed around me. Pretty frustrating.

    Me and some buddies will occasionally play on the Asia servers so during the loading zone we can say “USA #1, China (arbitrary number)” to get them all riled up. Checked PUBG tracker and for Squads we are Top 3%. :bunnywithapancakeonitshead:

    Got my first kill yesterday (p around 6 games played...I'm a horrible newb) Anyways, had just landed and ran to the nearest house. Saw another dude in the house picking up loot, so tried to duck into the nearest room undetected. He saw me, shot at me and missed a couple times. I ran into the other room and closed the door behind me...he opened it...I was still hiding behind the open door, he shoots a few more times, I come charging out jumping/moving. Dude misses a few more times and is out of ammo. I punch him to death in the corner of the room.

    tl/dr I'm horrible at this game but it's fun and I ran into someone even worse than me and fisted them to death.

    My favorite is when you get into one of those shitshow firefights and then one of you just gives up and runs away. This is a token move of mine, especially if I know I have plenty of bandages/other healers.

    Had one yesterday where a guy and I were 10 feet apart and firing away at each other in an open field.


    We both ran out of ammo, but he ran out first and falcon punched me. Sucks dying but I laughed.

    Had one where I was in a shootout in the second floor of a house. Wasn't killing or getting killed, so bailed out the window. Landed on the ground and started to run away. Got run over. Game over. Other dude was probably laughing at me from the window.

    It's not bad to be honest after the first minute of starting the match, by that time everything has rendered in. The one thing that I can really notice is the detail of the terrain in the distance. At a certain distance everything sort of looks like a blurry water painting. I usually crash about every 4th game or so but I was playing with a squad of 3 other guys and they all had the s or x and they crashed just as much as I did. They also gave me a new strategy that has really helped, we would open our parachutes at a high altitude and glide aways away and by the time we would land everything was already rendered in, and usually no one else would travel as far as us so we could loot up pretty easily.

    I'm still not good at the game, I bet I've died from the storm just as much as I've got killed by another player. I have real troubles finding vehicles. I've been getting better and really enjoy the game, just want them to fix the crashing and freezing.

    Anyone else have any good tips on gun fighting? I don't know if maybe my frame rate sort of screws me but I've been in a few fights and will unload 30 rounds at someone and only land 1 or 2 but then some guy will come up and it feels like they insta-down me in like 1 shot.

    It most certainly does. In squads I can tell if a group is close based on the drop in FPS. Also close quarter combat will absolutely kill your FPS.

    Just hope it gets better soon.

    I’d say go for it, it’s a really fun game and you can make your experience whatever you want. You can go for the win or be a troll and screw with everyone. One match we just drove around and shit tires out on vehicles and went mad max style trying to run people over and tossing grenade at them. Best times I’ve had are with a squad.

    I prefer to rocket straight to the ground to get a jump on everyone else. Plus, if you end up out of the circle, you waste valuable time by floating around.

    On cars, I found this map to be really useful and it changed how I approach the game. Basically, you have a better chance of finding a vehicle by tracking a road than by searching through a town. You'll almost never find one off-road, and the roads are surprisingly deserted. My current favorite strategy is to land near central boat locations (either on the river or the north shore of the military base island). You can then usually approach from the coast on the outer edge of the circle, minimizing the risk of someone coming up behind you.

    Really need the replay feature on the XBox. Tough to improve as a player if 9/10 times I die, I can't even see who killed me or how.

    Been playing some - really enjoy the game but any tips to not suck?

    I'm about 50/50 right now on actually killing one person per round. One time I killed 3. I can make it to the top 40 pretty regularly if I go slow.

    I've never found a good 'rifle' and scope combo so I end up having to move towards that point and get picked off.

    I guess a 2nd map will be cool but I'm still enjoying playing the one map... with the way the plane drops, and circle works it's a different game every time.

    The last Xbox patch was ok?

    I’m on and OG Xbox and I use to spawn straight in the plane and the buildings would take at least a minute to render. Now I’m gettting into the game with about 30 seconds left and the buildings are either rendered or take a couple of seconds.

    FPS also seems to have improved some, but it still drops off during the middle circles if there’s like 40+ people still alive.
