PlayerUnknown is the man behind the Arma 2 and Arma 3 Battle Royale mods and also collaborated with the H1Z1 team to make King of the Kill. Now he is releasing his own game, developed by Blue Hole studios (Tera Online.) It just went on Steam Early Access on March 23, 2017 and costs $30. For those unfamiliar with this game, up to 100 players start in a plane, jump out and start scavenging and fighting each other until only one remains. The playable area shrinks as time goes on, forcing players into encounters until it's over. It's a fun, tense game and each round takes up to 40 minutes. In terms of gameplay it is supposed to be somewhere between Arma 3 BR and H1Z1 in terms of realism and arcade. There are currently three modes, Solo, Duos (teams of two) and Squad (teams of up to 4.) Currently it at 1.0 release for PC and early access on Xbox One.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is there bullet drop?
Yes.

Are the bullets hitscan?
No.

Are headshots an instant kill, regardless of the weapon?
No, most headshots are not immediately fatal, but it depends on the weapon and helmet.

What is a badness score?
A badness score is an arbitrary rating produced by a robot to determine how bad you are. No one knows how the robot computes this score, but your best bet to reduce your badness score is to just get good.

What is the optimal strategy to win?
The best strategy I've come up with is to release your parachute really high and go to a far away location that has decent loot, but minimizes the chance of competing with someone on the ground. Then you find a vehicle and drive it to the next zone and hide it so it's not stolen. Camp with a shotgun. Repeat when the next zone is out of your area. It's really boring though.

What's "zeroing distance"?
Zeroing distance is the distance your sights are set to hit. If you set your zero too high and aim with your center crosshair, your shots will go over your target's head. If you set them too low, and aim with the center, you will shoot under.

What am I supposed to do during the lobby?
During the loading stage you need to get lucky so an M249 spawns on a table. Take the M249 and go in the middle of all the people and go prone and shoot all the bullets. This is to get their attention. Then drop all your clothes, followed by the M249. Then while still prone, position yourself in front of the M249 and move forwards and backwards so it looks like your loving yourself in the rear end. Bonus points if someone shoots your rear end in a top hat so it looks like it's bleeding.

What are the best weapons?
Vector, Uzi, and Crossbow.

Is snow loud?
I think crunching of snow being loud as gently caress but not traveling far and visibility being poo poo would be kinda neat to play on a small map.

Can I play this game on the couch with a TV and Xbox controller?
Yes, this is a max chill game that has native Xbox 360 controller support with force feedback.

Is there loot on the starting island?
Pro-tip: If you see someone go to spawn island, and decide to follow them and camp their boat, it's a good idea to loot some meds before you start camping so you don't die to the blue while you wait.

It's a fun game and I'm looking forward to getting back into playing it when I return from my holiday vacation - new map is fun, still enough jankiness for some silly rear end antics, and I love keeping voice chat on and taunting people and talking like meatwad before I execute them

Has there been a noticeable improvement in performance on the original map? The new one runs so much better

NEVER FUCKING TAKE A NIGHT OFF CLAN WARS.


Best way to play in my opinion:

Step 1: Name yourself something appropriate, like L00TG0BL1N
Step 2: Chute somewhere really far from the plane. Pick up everything possible. Meds first, then good attachments like AR supressors and scopes, then other junk.
Step 3: Find a Vehicle.
Step 4: Listen for gunshots, and drive towards them.
Step 5: Start honking around the area.
Step 6: When your vehicle starts getting shot at, drive it behind cover, and then drive back towards the shooting. Don't stop honking.
Step 7: Repeat until you've run over your target or died and delivered your generous loot to them.

An optional objective is to congratulate them over voice chat after you've died, and wish them well on their chicken dinner journey.

Did they ever fix the fact that higher foliage settings were a disadvantage? A lot of people online say you wanna set foliage to very low, but those posts seem to be old.

Reasonably sure they normalized the foliage advantage, but you shouldn't expect grass to grant cover beyond 100m.

For what it's worth, that's great confirmation bias. The game is mostly hacker free, but there are many hackers still at large. Those two videos are pretty clear, though I'm not sure if replays will show FPP or if they came from FPP games at all.

This always gives me a chuckle...lan cafes need their ips to not get banned, yada yada yada

I enjoy the game. It was addictive for a while and then I had my fill for a couple months, now I'm back, I like the new map. The casino and whatnot, fun touches.

Best I've ever gotten is #2, and for me it seems to be more of a travel/survival game how I play. Mostly chasing the circle, seldom more than a few frags.

I'm not being a dick, I am sincerely curious where the hacking is in that first video? He is third personing you to death from that bus all he can? Or who am I spectating? I don't know how the replay works.

You joking? He obviously has both aim hack and wall hack. The aim hack you can see by how he snaps to the heads instantly even without using ADS and see how the aim lock stops as soon as the first guy is dead. The wall hack is a little tougher to spot apart from him trying to shoot a guy through a wall at some point. Look how he kinda looks at the enemies through walls and moves accordingly not checking any other areas along the way. He even spots the guy laying prone in the bus through walls and decides to go for that guy instead of the dude in the house.
