#GamingBytes: Top 5 tips to win PUBG solo games

PUBG is famous for delivering one of the most electrifying and realistic 'Battle Royale' experiences.

However, as players must have realized, the game is widely different if you play a solo, duo or squad mode.

In solo mode, 99 players are trying to kill you and there's no revival.

Things can get overwhelming, so we bring you top five tips to win solo games.

In context

Here's how you can win PUBG solo


Hit the ground running

In solo mode, you have to perfect the art of landing. If you take time to land at a spot where other players are present, you will be killed.

Choose your landing spots wisely. However, we definitely recommend hitting high-activity areas in solo mode even if you are relatively new to PUBG.

It is a great way to start a game with some kills.


Know when to engage in fights

Solo players, often, tend to aggressively engage in fights. Don't do that, at all.

If you see two enemies going at it, wait patiently for one to die. Then take out the other one.

If you interfere in a gunfight, chances are you will die immediately, or give away your position to the survivor.

Picking your battles smartly is pivotal to getting 'chicken dinner'.

Enemy presence

Clear your area before you loot

A rookie mistake, players make, is rushing to loot their killed enemies. While it is not advisable in duo or squad either, it is fatal in solos.

It is perfectly easy for an enemy to catch you off-guard while you're looting, and kill you.

Even if you kill an opponent, contain your excitement. Check your surroundings for signs of enemies before looting your kill.


If you stop moving, you will die

Camping might be a smart move in duos and squads, where you take a position of advantage in a higher altitude, and hold your ground.

However, in solos where you are alone, camping can be deadly. You can easily get flanked, have an opponent creep up behind, or some distant sniper spot you before you see them.

Keep to covers, and keep moving, always.

Changing tactics

Adaptable tactics will see you through

Following our first four tips, combined with a little luck and skill will hopefully see you in the top 10.

Once you reach the coveted bracket, change your game style.

Rushing will get you killed in the final moments. Before you start shooting at one spotted enemy, try to locate the other players.

Once you know the locations, engage, and win the chicken dinner!

A word of caution

There is no revival by squad-mates in solo mode, you die directly. Exercise caution, if you are shot at and cannot locate the shooter, take cover and heal. If you are low on bullets, reload immediately before engaging. Carry health re-generators in your backpacks.

The best gun in PUBG all around has to be the M416 fully equipped. However, gun handling and choice really depend on your playing style and weapons you are comfortable with. I would suggest heading to the training mode of PUBG and trying shooting with various weapons to see which is best suited for you.
