Got this as a gift the other day, and I'm having a blast, but do you need headphones to hear footsteps? I've been playing solo and using my PC speakers, and the game is either dead quiet or deafening when I'm in the red zone.

It's not really less deafening with headphones. If you want to hear footsteps you have to endure loud rear end explosions way on the high end of the scale.

You should definitely hear someone in a house if you're on the ground floor and they're above you if that's what you mean. I've certainly had that happen a few times in the week or so that I've had the game.

I actually unmute global chat after dropping out of the plane for the off chance that someone left their mic open while trying to sneak up on me. It's happened once so far, so I'd say it's a good habit to get into.

Sometimes you get to hear people rage after you kill them too. A few months ago I think I killed a streamer because it sounded like he was bitching to his audience about, 'of loving course i die to an UZI what a cheap piece of poo poo use a real gun rear end in a top hat'

You should use headphones, but if you think its bad now it was much worse weeks ago. It was never as bad as some bad goons made it out to be, but you had the find the right volume.

Sometimes I play really well. Other times I get the drop on a guy and fire half my magazine to the right of my target and he turns around and casually murders me. I had an out of body experience as this was happening just before I died where I was like "why am I aiming there I should aim more to the left"

Thanks for listening to my story of badness.

the new red zone sounds are pretty terrifying, especially on the new map where I'm finding myself out in the open in a red zone way more frequently.

I like that the red zone is such an intense sound but I think it can still be toned down a bit

To steal the life of its target, it slips into the prey's shadow and silently waits for an opportunity.


I like the red zone/plane flying sound effects because I can open doors/vault through windows with the noise being lost in the cacophony.

New red zone at least gives you an indication of when poo poo will be dropping on you. The artillery firing is audible about 5/10 seconds before the rounds start hitting.

I was fully expecting my first chicken dinner to come from getting carried after dying like the scrub I am, but I ended up not only surviving but also nailing the last guy. Biggest goddamn rush I have gotten from a video game in a really long time.

I couldn't be bothered with editing a whole lot so here's 7+ minutes of me staring at hillsides through my dinky scope and shooting some dudes really badly.

Thanks. We're definitely not always that coherent, we've done our fair share of dying like mooks after flailing around haphazardly for a bit. But that time we were just somehow collectively in the zone, had some nice games with good fights and then ultimately that win. I never expected us to make it over that wide open field, but somehow we did.

Sorry. I couldn't find anyone to make you a cool cipher-themed avatar, and the look on this guy's face cracks me the fuck up.

Has anyone else found that red-zones seem to respawn in same spot a lot more since patch? Last game I was stuck in a single building for ages because redzone spawn in same spot 3 times, and there were no other buildings nearby. Needless to say going from 65 people alive to ~40 without looting meant I was pretty I'll equipped for first fight I got in.

It does that sometimes. I remember that happened to me in one of my first games like six months ago.

Yeah, the only fix I've found for this (on Windows 10) is go into Devices, click on your controller, and then click "remove device."

Of course, doing this means you have to reinstall the controller every time you plug it in and repeat this process every time you want to play PUBG, so I've just learned to live with the controller button prompts.

Yeah the first time I noticed the guns not actually loading into the game was when I and someone else landed on the same roof, I saw no guns and jumped onto the next roof and picked up a gun and then dude above me suddenly had a shotgun to blast my head off. I watch the recording back and sure enough there wasn't a loving gun when I looked and it apparently loaded in afterwards.

Super stupid game mechanic.
