Then comes the special game modes, which include WAR and is quite similar to special game modes. Besides, PUBG game developers extend special game modes from time to time.

The game starts with about 100 players ducked in a plane that starts from one point of the map to another. The players can pick their location of landing and accordingly jump out of the plane when the marked location’s distance is minimum from the plane. It will save you time and help you to land first. If you don’t jump on your own, you will be thrown out of the plane at the last possible landing location and then make your way to the nearest loot location. 

What after landing?

It’s the most critical and vital part of the game. The player needs to lay their hand on the nearest gun so that he can defend himself. Rest, loot can be carried out throughout the game.

PUBG loot material

Remember, shooting starts in a fraction of seconds after landing, so gear up with the gun and all other available material near the landing spot. Kill the enemy and make your way to the safe zone.

The safe zone (white circle) is the circle in which you are supposed to camp and roam around. After every interval, a blue electric field closes into the safe zone, contracting the safe circle to a smaller area. The players outside the safe zone will start experiencing health damage, and it increases as the game roll on.

The attachments are being included to add more stability to the weapon by reducing the gun’s recoil and cut down on the vertical and horizontal kick. Also, the barrel attachments can do wonders by hiding the gun flash and by silencing the weapon sound.

Similarly, for the snipers, bullet loops decrease reload time, and cheek pads decrease the recoil.
