Despite being an early access game Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds is one of the hottest multiplayer games out there. With such a huge player base, we figured it’s best to list down the common types of PUBG players you might run into.
Landing Areas of Choice: Military Base, School, Mylta Power and most major towns
These are the players that go parachuting straight into Military Base raring for a fight. If victorious, they emerge as kings of whichever zone they pick – geared enough to go through the game full Rambo. Of course in a game like Battlegrounds Rambo could easily be taken down by anyone crawling in tall grass with a Micro Uzi – which brings us to the next type of player.
Weapon Of Choice: Can kill with any weapon
Commonly Seen: Dead at the start/ storming into houses guns blazing
Famous Quotes: “Damn campers #@*&”
Landing Areas of Choice: Could be anywhere
He could be anywhere; in the bathtub of an inconspicuous house or sprawled out in the cornfields. That’s the scary thing about The Camper; you won’t know he’s there until it’s too late.
He doesn’t need to play the game as long as you don’t get to either. With even a bad player staking out a staircase with a shotgun being most players fear; a good camper is the nightmare of anyone approaching the next circle; all you see is a flash of light from a tree of in a distance and a crack akin to thunder as your screen turns grey.
Weapon Of Choice: Flash Hider/ Compressor Sniper Rifles
Commonly Seen: Unseen/ Any house/ Tall grass
Famous Quotes: “Total kills don’t matter”
The Scrounger (Or The Coward, Depending On Who You Ask)
Landing Areas of Choice: Outskirt towns and small cluster of houses
A relative of The Camper, The Scrounger drops far from the flight path of the plane, aiming for clusters of houses far from where gunfights could happen.
Surviving into the late game with a UMP and a shotgun (hence the name); the scrounger tries his best to avoid combat until the zone is so small he has no choice but to. Even then, the scrounger would much prefer crawling around the edges letting his opponents kill themselves.
Weapon Of Choice: Does it matter if I don’t fire a single shot?
Commonly Seen: Parachuting far off into the horizon/ crawling from circle to circle
Famous Last Words: “He doesn’t see me!”/ “Anyone got a rifle or scope?”
Landing Areas of Choice: Toxicity transcends trivial matters like landing spots
The Toxic is not just a PUBG player type, he’s someone we see in every game. However, he has his full power level unlocked in PUBG with the open chat system; from hurling profanities at his killer to terrorizing squad mode The Toxic is a force to be reckoned with for all the wrong reasons.
Weapon Of Choice: Microphone/ Open chat
Commonly Seen: Sprawled out dead
Famous Last Words: “Camper @#*&/ Lucker @#*&/” [insert insult of choice]
Landing Area of Choice: Directly below the flight path
From not knowing how to fly upon dropping to dying to the zone, The Beginner is prey for players like The Fighter.. and The Camper.. and even The Scrounger..
Normally one of the first to die at the start of every round, The Beginner starts off slow but is on his way to growing into one of the above Archetypes!
Weapon of Choice: Ooh a machete!
Commonly Seen: Wandering around his parachute/ Dead
Famous Last Words: “What’s this blue circle?”
