Hardspace: Shipbreaker Halloween: Haunted Frontier

\n

Hardspace: Shipbreaker's Halloween event is Haunted Frontier, full of spooky haunted ships that put your bravery — and desire for salvage — to the test.

\n

The update, which is live now on Steam, turns any ship into a potential ghost ship. Things start deteriorating as you gather materials and fend off rogue AI nodes. Lights flicker on and off. Air gets sucked out of the room. And somewhere deep in the ship, unsettling sounds can be heard...

\n

Should you make it out alive, you can show off your hard-earned rewards with new stickers and badges.

No Man's Sky Halloween Update

\n

Head back to the outer reaches of the galaxy to find some new loot in the No Man's Sky Halloween update. Brave explorers can scour Desolation's wrecked vessels again to find a new item, Tainted Metal, and have a chance to snag some Quicksilver. But it comes at a cost. The freighters are full of new treats and a security system gone haywire.

\n

Trade Tainted Metal with the Scrap Dealer to get new base decorations and additional customization options, or you can stockpile it to exchange for the Horrific Flesh-Helmet.

\n

Scrap Dealers also have Orange Pustules and Detoxified Slimes for infesting and purifying bases.

PixARK Halloween

\n

PixARK Halloween brings a spooky makeover to the survival game from now until November 2, with costumes and treats galore.

\n

Things kick off at the main menu, which is getting a Halloween re-skin. The main attraction is the Pumpkin Soul Reaper though.

When you defeat the Pumpkin Soul Reaper, it might drop:

\n
    \n
  • Pumpkin Seed
  • \n
  • Magic Broom
  • \n
  • Flying Firework
  • \n
  • Clown Costume

PUBG Mobile Infection Mode

\n

PUBG Mobile's Infection Mode is back from the dead from now until November 9, with new content, themes, costumes, and plenty of zombies.

\n

Infection Mode's classic combat returns, pitting a team of Defenders against a team of Zombies in an all-or-nothing fight. Zombies — sporting Halloween masks, if you so choose —  can only use melee attacks, but fallen Defenders transform into Zombies with chances for form shifts and stat buffs.

\n

If it all gets too much for the Defenders, they transform into Vanquishers when their team is down to three members. Foes they vanquish can't be resurrected.

\n

These hellish fights unfold across maps decked out with pumpkins, gravestones, and other seasonal paraphernalia. More costumes and decorations are planned before the end of the event.

\n

Pokemon GO Halloween 2020 runs from October 23 at 9 p.m. EST through November 3 at the same time and offers the first chance to get your hands on Galarian Yamask among other things.

Ghost-type Pokemon will be more common in the wild, in Raids, and in Eggs. You might even find a costumed Gengar in Raids or hatch a Sableye in costume if you're lucky.

Dreams Halloween

\n

If you're looking for a more atmospheric experience, Dreams' Halloween event, All Hallows' Dreams, may be for you. The whole thing is user-generated, like the rest of Dreams, and All Hallows' Dreams pops up at the top of the world list when you boot the game up.

\n

Choosing it takes you to a dream world with different scary mansions to explore.

\n

Some are reportedly very scary indeed, though they have their biggest frights confined to the upper floors. Others are just fun, creepy haunted houses to explore, complete with pumpkins carved by other Dreams players and a costume zone.

If you want the film crossover treats, you'll have to shell out for the SAW and Chainsaw Massacre bundles, both of which include skins, items, and weapons inspired by their respective franchises.

\n

Activision promised more Halloween-themed bundles for the in-game store, including the new Dr. Karlov bundle focused on regional Verdansk folklore and a Grim Reaper bundle.

\n

In addition to Trick or Treat crates with Halloween items galore, Haunting of Verdansk adds night modes to event maps, zombie battle royale, scavenger hunts, and much, much more.

Elder Scrolls Online Halloween — Witches Festival 2021

\n

Elder Scrolls Online's annual Halloween Witches Festival is back once more with double XP and plenty of treats to go around. ESO's 2020 Witches Festival runs from October 22 at 10 a.m. EST through November 3 at the same time.

\n

If this is your first time taking part, you'll need to complete "The Witchmother's Bargain" quest from the Crown Store and earn the Witchmother's Whistle item. If you already have it, just select it from your collections to get started.

\n

Using the Whistle kicks off a two-hour period of bonus XP, but there's a lot more.

\n

Players can earn new mementos, furnishings, and Dremora and Hollowjack-themed items through Plunder Skulls earned in battle.

\n

Bosses drop Dremora Plunder Skulls with extra goods, including treasure maps and pages for the Grave Digger weapon style.

\n

There's the final evolution of the Indrik, a costume gala, grab bags, deals, and more. Check out the full details on the ESO event site.

Overcooked! 2  Moon Harvest Festival

\n

Overcooked! 2's Halloween celebration isn't technically Halloween-themed. It's in honor of harvest and autumn celebrations throughout eastern Asia, but it's fall-ish, so it works.

\n

Better yet, it's a free update with no end time, and the content will appear in Overcooked! All You Can Eat for next-gen consoles.

\n

Overcooked! 2's Moon Harvest Festival introduces new kitchens themed around water and lily pad obstacles. There are five new levels total, plus three succulent-looking mooncakes to add to the menu.

Borderlands 3 Halloween — Bloody Harvest Returns

\n

Borderlands 3's Bloody Harvest Halloween event is back for October 2020. The ghoulish festivities run through November 5, and it's easier than ever to get your hands on some sweet, ghastly gear.

\n

To kick things off, head to Sanctuary III, and speak with Maurice. Maurice tasks you with collecting Hecktoplasm from haunted enemies, easily spotted by their ghostly green glow.

\n

Defeating haunted enemies spawns specters you'll need to defeat as well, and that's when you finally get ahold of Hecktoplasm.

\n

After collecting enough of Hecktoplasm, Maurice opens the gate to Heck, where you can chat with Captain Haunt to access a number of quests, through which you'll earn Bloody Harvest items and cosmetics.

\n

This year, the Bloody Harvest quests are less demanding than before, making it easier to get loot.

\n
    \n
  • 4 challenges completed  “A Shrinking Feeling" weapon trinket
  • \n
  • 8 challenges completed  "Message from Beyond" ECHO Device skin
  • \n
  • 12 challenges completed  "Haunted Look" shared Vault Hunter skin

Destiny 2: Festival of the Lost 2020

\n

Destiny 2 brings back the Festival of the Lost and the Haunted Forest for 2020, with new weapons, triumphs, armor sets, and cosmetics for Exotics to celebrate the spookiest season of the year. Festival of the Lost 2020 is free for all Destiny 2 players and runs from October 6 through November 3. 

\n
\n\n
\n

Festival of the Lost 2020 adds new perk rolls for the Braytech Werewolf and Horror Story, plus new sets for a few classes:

\n
    \n
  • Hunter — Lycanthrope Set
  • \n
  • Warlock — Daywalker (vampire) Set
  • \n
  • Titan — Promethean Set
  • \n
\n

On the official Festival of the Lost blog post, Bungie provided more information on the Halloween event. The Spider is a new NPC that gives players Cipher Decoders that unlock special chests at the end of The Haunted Forest. The chests are worth pursuing because they contain Legendary items specific to the Festival of the Lost. 

\n

Rounding things out, there are new Sparrow skins available, as well as festival masks and vanity items for various armor sets, including broomsticks and witch hats.

Resident Evil Resistance October Update

\n

Resident Evil Resistance has a big October update in store, which is basically a Halloween update without actually being called a Halloween update.

\n

Jill Valentine joins the ranks of the Survivors, with powerful weapons and her characteristic dodge mechanic from Resident Evil 3: Nemesis remake. And as is only fitting, Nemesis itself is a playable Mastermind for the first time. Players control Nemesis through playing as Nicholai, another new Mastermind.

\n

The Prison is a new map added in RE Resistance's October update, and the Uptown Raccoon City and Bemusement Park maps get a remix with new layouts.

\n

Finally is a slew of new costumes and weapon skins, Survivors' perks and customizable abilities, and Mastermind traps.

Grounded October Update

\n

Grounded’s October update adds ziplines and more to the survival game, including some Halloween-themed items. The initial announcement is relatively light on details, but players can expect decorations, recreational items, and doodads to use with friends. These include harvestable Candy Corn and a new landmark in the Frankenline, which is described as "a creepy discarded Etch-a-Sketch you can actually draw on."

\n

Aside from washing The Backyard in a spooky glow, the October update for Grounded does a lot on the backend as well, including fixing a handful of bugs, fine-tuning combat, and unlocking new perks. You can see the full patch notes here

Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath  All Hallows' Eve

\n

Mortal Kombat 11 Aftermath is getting some Halloween goodness with the All Hallows’ Eve character skin pack. It’s available now and is free for Aftermath owners. Those who haven’t upgraded to Aftermath yet would need to purchase the expansion, which also unlocks the Summer Heat and Femme Fatale packs from earlier in 2020.

Mortal Kombat 11’s All Hallows’ Eve skin pack trailer highlighted three of the included skins. One is the “Blizzard King” outfit for Sub-Zero, and then there’s the part-werewolf part-school spirit “Beast Within” skin for Johnny Cage. Then there’ “Bad Medicine” for D’Vorah, turning the Kytinn fighter into a spidery nurse from hell.

The Halloween fun isn’t limited to New Horizons, as Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp celebrates spooky season in its own way. The 2020 Pocket Camp Halloween event features a number of special activities with ghoulish treats on offer for those who complete certain goals.

\n

Jack comes around and demands sweet treats. Hand over bat-themed lollipops to get bat furniture as a reward, and plant pumpkins during the month’s Garden Event to nab hatbats. Jack offers exclusive items such as mystical pumpkins in return.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons' Halloween update is available to download for free now, and it’s bringing more than just the Czar of Halloween to the island.

Animal Crossing patch 1.5 paves the way for Halloween by adding Candy as an item players can purchase from the Nooklings’ store and pumpkins as growable DIY fodder.

\n

The patch 1.5 trailer shows players planting, watering, and harvesting at least four different pumpkin varieties and then using them in various Halloween-themed DIY recipes.

Monster Hunter: World Iceborne — Fun Fright Fest

\n

Capcom’s brewing up a special Monster Hunter: World Iceborne Halloween event called the Fun Fright Fest, part of the hefty Title Update 5. It runs from October 15 at 8 p.m. EST through November 5 at the same time and is exclusive to the expansion.

\n

The Autumn Harvest Fest is returning to the base Monster Hunter: World game, but Capcom hasn’t said much about it yet.

\n

Fun Fright Fest (starting at 7:06 in the above trailer) sees the Seliana Gathering Hub decked out with spooky furnishings, and the handler dons a Cute Demoness outfit to celebrate the occasion. There are two special ticket types to collect during the event and trade in for loot: the Fun Fright Ticket and the VIP Fun Fright Ticket. 

\n

The former get doled out as daily login bonuses for the MHW Halloween event and can be used to craft armor with Decoration slots. Players can exchange the latter for in-game decorations and Layered Armor, but these are only available as random item drops. Both ticket types can be exchanged for Melding Tickets too.

\n

There’s at least one new set of armor coming to the Fun Fright Fest, Demon Lord Alpha+. Wearing pieces of this armor set increases the chance of getting VIP Fun Fright Tickets.

\n

Capcom may reveal more about Monster Hunter: World Iceborne’s Fun Fright Fest as the start date approaches, and we’ll update if that happens.

Killing Floor 2: Infernal Insurrection

\n

It wouldn’t be Halloween without Killing Floor 2’s annual Halloween celebrations, and 2020 is no different. This year’s Halloween event is Killing Floor 2: Infernal Insurrection, and it brings treats galore, including new weapons, maps, and cosmetics.

\n

Infernal Insurrection’s new map is Hallmark Station, a twisted take on London’s famous King’s Cross Station. Hallmark Station has been overrun by zeds, of course, and players must team up with fellow mercenaries to take down the demonic threat. Hellmark Station includes Survival, Endless, and Weekly modes.

\n

Two new HRG weapons make their debut in Killing Floor 2’s Halloween event.

\n
    \n
  • HRG Scorcher (Firebug class bonus) — a flare gun that marks targets by setting them on fire
  • \n
  • HRG Arc Generator (Survivalist class bonus) — fires EMP blasts in short bursts or powerful charges
  • \n

From now until November 10, Killing Floor 2 is also introducing a number of Halloween events, objectives, bonuses, and cosmetics.

Two Point Hospital

\n

Not to be outdone by Tropico 6, Two Point Hospital also has a Halloween event going on right now. Of course, the hospital sim was already kinda' spooky with ghosts floating about, but things are even more terrifying with the "boo-tiful update."

\n

From now until November 1, players can decorate hospitals with Halloween bits and bobs, listening to scary music over the hospital PA, and duck boisterous bats in the hallways. 

\n

Certain illnesses will even get Halloween-themed updates, such as Lightheadedness getting renamed Firghtheadedness, with patients sprouting pumpkins for heads instead of lightbulbs. 

\n

those who don't already own the game can grab it for 66% off on Steam until November 1.

The Elder Scrolls Blades is celebrating the spooky season with the Witches Festival. New quests have been added to the game alongside a spell overhaul, new Nightmare Town, and brand-new decorations. 

\n

The 1.4 update includes myriad fixes to combat, weapons, armor, items, and more. It even squashes a few pesky bugs. But(!), it doesn't squash spiders, which feature heavily in because Halloween.

Hitman 2 Halloween Escalation Contract

\n

Hitman 2 is even getting in on the Halloween shenanigans with a special, Halloween-themed Escalation Contract. This new contract is included as part of October's free content update for those who downloaded the Hitman 2 Starter Pack, and it takes place in Hawke's Bay, New Zealand.

\n

Along with the obligatory skeletons, pumpkins, and other spooky accouterments, the Contract includes special rewards for those who manage to survive the horror-filled wasteland that awaits them: the Tactical Wetsuit and Bat Shuriken.

The Contract is live now, and you can check out the event's official trailer here.

Gears 5: Pumpkin Ball and More

\n

Gears 5 is bringing Pumpkin Ball back for Halloween this year, which is basically a pumpkin version of dodgeball, and it's also giving you the chance to earn a special Frankenstein skin by winning 13 matches of Pumpkin Ball before the event ends on November 4.

\n

This isn't your typical game of dodge, er, Pumpkin Ball, though. Players automatically revive unless you target specific, zombie-like weak points, including the head or the universal weakness to massive explosions.

\n

The event started on October 22, with more planned sometime this week as well, so stay tuned for more info as it becomes available.

Elder Scrolls Online: The Witches Festival

\n

The Witches Festival returns once more in Elder Scrolls Online, bringing with it a gaggle of ghoulish goodies for your Halloween pleasure. The event starts October 24 at 10am EST and ends November 4 at the same time.

\n

One way to get the party started is earning tons more XP, and to do that, you'll need to complete "The Witchmother's Bargain" quest from the Crown store then use the Whistle you get as a reward.

\n

The Witches Festival has plenty more on offer as well, including Festival-themed collectibles and costumes, Dremora Plunder Skulls (complete with new items) earned through defeating special bosses once per day, and the Glenmoril Armor set.

Mario Kart Tour Halloween Event

\n

Mario Kart Tour is joining in the spooky fun this season, with some sort of Halloween event centered around a Luigi's Mansion course. The official tweet announcing the event only said we can get tricks and treats out of it.

\n\n

Sort of unrelated to the event, but not really because it is Luigi's Mansion after all, is the announcement that Luigi is coming to Mario Kart Tour as of now. (Apparently, he lost his keys and couldn't get there when the game first launched).

\n

Much to Luigi's undoubted dismay, the Halloween event is adding King Boo as a playable character too.

Don't Starve: Hallowed Nights 2019

\n

Klei Entertainment's lovable death simulator Don't Starve Together's Halloween 2019 event is the return of Hallowed Nights, starting October 24. The Klei blog post announcing the event's return said it'll largely include the same things as last year, with a few new treats and tricks.

\n

That means Candy items, Halloween Decorations, and Trinkets you can give to the Pig King for Candy. Candy is good in Don't Starve, because unlike other food items, it never spoils.

\n

Last year's Hallowed Nights also introduced the Mad Science Lab, where you could engineer a number of potions with a variety of positive effects — but at the expense of your sanity.

\n

Though not technically part of Hallowed Nights, October 24 is when we'll see Wurt the Merm make her debut in Don't Starve as well.

Dragalia Lost: Halloween Fantasia 2

\n

Dragalia Lost's popular Halloween Fantasia event returns as the game's big Spooktober event, bringing with it new items, quests, and summons. It all kicks off at 2am October 18.

\n

First is the Trick or Treasure! Facility Event, which introduces Nightmare difficulty, new items to obtain, and more. It's accompanied by a new set of Daily and Live Endeavors that'll run through October 31 as well.

\n

Thanks to Perfectly-Nintendo distilling the patch notes, we also know the special Halloween Fantasia summoning event will include the following:

    \n

  • \n
  • Halloween Maritimus (Dragon)

Sea of Thieves: Fort of the Damned

\n

Things are taking a decidedly spooky turn for Xbox One and Windows 10 players this month in Sea of Thieves. The game's monthly content update this time around is, naturally, Halloween related, and it's no barebones update either.

\n

Old Boot Fort has been overrun by the forces of evil, turning it into the Fort of the Damned, managed by the Shadow of Fate Skeletons.

\n

This fort can be activated as long as the requirements are met, and it brings with it new Voyages, new Contracts from Duke, and some big rewards. More importantly, these additions aren't just for October; they'll continue on as a permanent part of the game.

\n

There'll also be new arena rules, new items and pets from the Emporium, and even a new way to play Shanties. The full details are here.

Fallout '76 Mischief Night

\n

Fallout '76's Halloween event this year is Mischief Night, letting you take full advantage of the day to wreak utter havoc on Whitespring. Mischief Night kicks off at noon EST on October 26 and runs until the same time on November 5, and it begins "every hour, on the hour." It's a public event, which means free fast travel too.

\n

You'll start off at the Mischief Pyre near the Springhouse Gazebo, and after hearing about the rogue Eyebot JES-2R's dark plans, you're in for a quick tour of the resort area.

\n

From there, you can destroy property and vehicles, vandalize buildings, risk getting tricked at one of the treat bowls, and basically do whatever your little black heart desires — as long as the Whitespring Elite Security Force doesn't catch you.

\n

Complete JES-2R's missions to earn rewards, and wearing or crafting your own costume helps further your progress towards unlockables.

\n

Check out the full details here.

Hearthstone Hallow's End: Doom in the Tomb

\n

Blizzard finally lifted the lid on Hearthstone's Hallow's End 2019 event. This year's special Halloween event is Doom in the Tomb; it starts October 8 at 10 a.m. PDT/1 p.m. EDT and runs for three weeks until October 30 at 9 a.m. PDT/12 p.m. EDT.

\n

As always, there'll be unique Tavern Brawls with rewards for completing missions under a certain time, plus trials in the Haunted Temple for both good and E.V.I.L. to overcome. Naturally, the Headless Horseman will be making his appearance as well.

\n

Some of the Tomb's treasures might seem familiar to longtime players as well, with classic cards like the Druid, Imp Gang Boss, and Imp Burglard making a return.

Killing Floor 2: Grim Treatments

\n

Tripwire Studios' Killing Floor 2 Halloween event is already underway, with the launch of Grim Treatments earlier this month.

\n

Grim Treatment is a free update that brings in a variety of Halloween Zeds, up to their ears (or whatevers) in blood and gore, a brand-new map in the form of Ashwood Asylum, special cosmetic items, and Nuked Objective Mode.

\n

Nuked has special quests and cutscenes, but the main objective centers around the attempt to rescue a small child in the aftermath of nuclear fallout, and of course, there are plenty of Zeds trying to stop you.

League of Legends The Harrowing 2019

\n

The Harrowing is basically an institution in League of Legends. It's a yearly fright-fest that ties in with the game's lore, focusing on the Black Mist and, well, death. Because it's Halloween.

\n

The big draw in The Harrowing tends to be the special Champion skins on offer, plus various ranks of gear, and plenty of other additions to get you in the Halloween spirit.

So far, there's absolutely nothing about this year's Harrowing, but since we're well into October now, that'll likely change soon.

There will, in fact, be a Star Wars Battlefront 2 Halloween event this year. Shared on EA Star Wars' official Twitter account, the event will begin on October 23 and end on October 31.

The event might not feature ghouls and ghosts, but it will allow players to earn 2X experience for the entire period. That includes all game modes.

The event will center around the Ewok hunt on Endor, which, unsurprisingly, will be at night.

Dead by Daylight Withering Blight Event

\n

This year's Dead by Daylight Hallowed Blight event, called Withering Blight, was leaked during the Stranger Things event over the summer. That said, only the existence of the Halloween event was leaked. Since then, we've learned a little bit more. 

\n

The event will run from October 22 to November 1. Not only will it bring "spooky decorations" to the world of Dead by Daylight, but items from Halloweens past, including: 

\n
    \n
  • The Will O' Wisp flashlight
  • \n
  • The All Hallows' Eve lunchbox
  • \n
  • The Pustula Petals offering
  • \n
\n

Per the game's official blog: 

\n
\n

You can find these limited-time items scattered throughout newly generated Bloodwebs and in chests for the duration of the event. You will keep any leftover items and be able to use them year round, but be warned: Any unused Pustula Petals will stay in your inventory, but will not be useable after the event period. 

\n

Following feedback from the Hallowed Blight event last year, Pustula Petals will instead create a pair of event Hooks and Generators for each Offering used. Survivors who burn one of these Offerings will receive bonus Bloodpoints whenever an event Generator is powered, and Killers receive a bonus each time a Survivor is hooked on a special event Hook. If you don’t burn an Offering, you’ll still receive some bonus Bloodpoints, but not as many as those who do. 

\n
\n

The event will also bring new challenges and rewards to Dead by Daylight. Putrid Serum will be a new currency for the event, which can be used to acquire cosmetics. Though there are a finite number of these items in the event, finding them all will net you "six hallowed cosmetics."

\n

Last year's event featured an adrenaline-filled rush to gather antitoxins to fend off an army of mutated creatures bent on destroying everything in sight, plus the slightly less tense inclusion of new items and gear.

Rainbow Six Siege Halloween Event

\n

Last year, Ubisoft treated us to the Mad House Halloween event in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, and while the company's been silent so far about this year's Halloween event, a set of rather frightening looking skins was recently leaked.

\n

obutu3_ posted a video on YouTube showing off new skins for Doc, Ela, and Vigil, among others, all of which are pretty obviously meant for Halloween.

If it's anything like last year, expect to see plenty of Halloween decorations around the Rainbow Six Siege world and, hopefully, see the previous year's skins available again as well.

Call of Duty Halloween 2019

\n

Just like we can count on a new Call of Duty game every year, we can count on a Call of Duty Halloween event, too. Only — Activision hasn't announced one yet.

\n

Last year's was all about Black Ops, and the year before focused on Infinite Warfare. This year saw Call of Duty Mobile finally launch, so it's possible any new event could center around that since Modern Warfare won't release until October 25. Of course, we could also see something in Black Ops 4 ... 

\n

Either way, these usually involve the same thing: new skins, stickers, and gear, all won through reaching specific tier levels and completing certain missions.

\n

Stay tuned for more.

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery Halloween Event

\n

Harry Potter and Halloween are perfect matches for each other, not least because something interesting — or deadly — always happens on Halloween.

\n

Hogwarts Mystery will be no different this year. The game's official Twitter account teased the game's Dark Arts Month earlier this month on Twitter.

\n\n

We know what's going on with Wizards Unite, but we're still in the dark about Hogwarts

\n

These costumes will all be sold individually and can be bought as sets for a discount.

Bloodborne's Halloween event is fully organized by the Bloodborne fan community. It's an unofficial official event (just go with it), and rules are determined on the Bloodborne sub-reddit based on which suggestions get the most upvotes.

How to Get Free UCs in PUBG Mobile https://www.gameskinny.com/eua3x/how-to-get-free-ucs-in-pubg-mobile https://www.gameskinny.com/eua3x/how-to-get-free-ucs-in-pubg-mobile Mon, 09 Sep 2019 10:01:22 -0400 Sergey_3847

Every PUBG Mobile player knows how hard it is to get cash and/or UCs. However, they are a necessary component of getting ahead and getting the best out of the game's gear and weapons. That's why it's important to learn how to get free UCs in PUBG Mobile as fast as possible.

Below, you will find a couple of working (and legal) methods on how to get free UCs in PUBG Mobile — without getting yourself banned. 

Method 1: Complete Weekly Missions

One of the most popular and legit ways of earning UCs in PUBG Mobile is completing weekly missions.

However, you can't access weekly missions unless you have the Elite Royal Pass, which can be purchased for $10 or 600 UCs. Thankfully, it's a one-time purchase per season; you will have access to weekly missions until the end of the season.

Here's how you can purchase the Royal Pass in PUBG Mobile:

  1. Go to main screen
  2. Click the RP button on the right side of the screen
  3. Tap the Upgrade Pass button
  4. Pay and unlock the pass

Method 2: Complete Challenges

If you don't have the initial $10 to purchase Royal Pass, then you can take part in various online challenges for PUBG Mobile.

The last challenge was the India Bonus Challenge that allowed all PUBG Mobile players to compete for free UC packs and other rewards.

If you want to take part in the next challenge, you need to monitor the official PUBG Mobile Facebook page for all news and updates. When the next challenge comes up, sign up for it and get your free UCs without spending a dime.

How to Get the Bronze, Silver, and Gold Compass in PUBG Mobile https://www.gameskinny.com/9br3i/how-to-get-the-bronze-silver-and-gold-compass-in-pubg-mobile https://www.gameskinny.com/9br3i/how-to-get-the-bronze-silver-and-gold-compass-in-pubg-mobile Tue, 20 Aug 2019 10:25:35 -0400 Sergey_3847

The latest 0.14.0 update for PUBG Mobile adds a series of events to the game that requires players to locate hidden spots that may contain one of the three new compass items, including bronze, silver, and gold compasses.

You can exchange these compasses for various items, such as weapon skins or character skins, BP scrap, classic coupon scrap, and other items. Different items require different numbers of compasses, so you will have to look for them all over the map.

If you want to know how to easily locate them, then follow our quick guide below with exact locations.

PUBG Compass Map Locations

There are nine sure locations where compasses can spawn in PUBG Mobile. If you’re lucky, then you’ll find a golden one in at least one of these locations. But mostly, you’ll find bronze or silver variants, since these spawn randomly.

Here are some surefire locations.

Sosnovka Island

Land on the southern island of Sosnovka and go to the top of the radio tower, which is located on the hill between the Novorepnoe and Military Base.

Between the Sosnovka Island and Ferry Pier, there is a tiny island where these items can also spawn.

Mylta Power

Go to the eastern part of the island and locate the large stacks at the back of the Mylta Power building. Compasses should spawn near the tallest chimney.

Move north a bit and look out for a house on top of the hill near the prison building. Look inside that house.

Rozhok

Between Rozhok and the school building, there is an excavation site, where you can look out for more compasses.

Go west of Rozhok to the ruins area, find a church, and search the backyard for more potential spawn points.

Shooting Range

Lastly, explore the shooting range area between Severny and Georgopol in the northern part of the map.

There are two possible spots here: one at the plane crash site, and the other one at the entrance into the tunnel on the other side of the hill.

PUBG Cross-Play Coming Soon to Xbox One and PS4 https://www.gameskinny.com/wlxq8/pubg-cross-play-coming-soon-to-xbox-one-and-ps4 https://www.gameskinny.com/wlxq8/pubg-cross-play-coming-soon-to-xbox-one-and-ps4 Mon, 19 Aug 2019 13:05:29 -0400 Josh Broadwell

ID@Xbox's Chris Charla announced PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) will be getting cross-platform play between the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The feature is expected to roll out sometime in early October after a testing phase in late September.

The announcement came as part of Xbox's Gamescom 2019 presentation, wherein PUBG's season four was also revealed.

PS4 and Xbox One are the only platforms included in this new update. PUBG Mobile is still its own thing, and PC players won't be able to enter matches with console players since the aiming capabilities are completely different on PC than console.

The move is important for a few reasons. There's the obvious benefit of players being able to enjoy the game with their friends who own a different console. However, it also means there will be more players across the board in general, which increases the chances players will be matched with others near their own rank.

For an online game, especially one like PUBG that isn't exactly a spring chicken, keeping the player pool alive and growing is vital.

This new change is another sign that PUBG does things at its own pace. Where once, it was in a fight to the death rivalry with Fortnite, which already introduced cross-platform play on all platforms, it focuses more on improving the existing experience and special events than it does on outright competition.

It's also an important step for Sony. Earlier this year, the company got a bit of flak for refusing cross-platform play or, at the very least, being somewhat picky about which games were eligible for it.

Implementing cross-play in PUBG isn't indicative of a complete change of heart, but it's certainly a step in the right direction for the once-recalcitrant Sony.

What with Nintendo and Microsoft growing ever closer and Sony finally realizing players have friends who own other consoles, it seems we've entered a new era of competitive cooperation in the games industry.

How to Lean in PUBG Mobile https://www.gameskinny.com/8yixx/how-to-lean-in-pubg-mobile https://www.gameskinny.com/8yixx/how-to-lean-in-pubg-mobile Mon, 19 Aug 2019 10:09:53 -0400 Sergey_3847

Although the mobile version of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds is limited in terms of controls, the new updates keep bringing new mechanics. Now, players can lean and shoot at the same time.

However, this feature is not activated by default in PUBG Mobile, so you need to activate it first. Afterward, you can use special buttons to lean either left or right when aiming at your enemies.

Step 1: Enable Lean Options

Before using the lean option, you need to go to the Settings menu in PUBG Mobile and follow these steps:

  1. Enable the Peek and Fire option
  2. Enable the Peek and Open Scope option
  3. Select one of the two Peek options: tap or hold

You can find all these options under the Gyroscope feature in the Settings menu.

The first option will let you lean and fire at the same time, the second one will let you lean and look through your scope, and the last option depends on your preference, whether you like to tap or hold buttons while leaning on your mobile device.

Step 2: Use Lean Buttons

After you activate the lean options in your game's menu, you will see the two new buttons on the left side of your screen. You can tap or hold these buttons for your character to either lean left or right.

You can also rearrange the position of the buttons and set them to any part of the screen by holding and moving.

Godzilla Crossover Event Roars Into PUBG Mobile https://www.gameskinny.com/m8uci/godzilla-crossover-event-roars-into-pubg-mobile https://www.gameskinny.com/m8uci/godzilla-crossover-event-roars-into-pubg-mobile Wed, 22 May 2019 13:53:14 -0400 Josh Broadwell

PUBG Mobile is getting another crossover event soon, this time with the Godzilla franchise.

The event comes before the impending release of Godzilla: King of Monsters on May 31. However, the PUBG x Godzilla crossover doesn't have a specific date just yet. Currently, it's scheduled for "sometime" in May.

There isn't much May left, so presumably, it will be within the next week or so.

So far, Tencent and PUBG Corp haven't released many details about the event itself either. Players will uncover "ominous in-game clues" related to Godzilla's imminent arrival, and it may or may not have something to do with the various other monsters that will be showcased in the film: Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidora.

PUBG and its mobile variant are no strangers to crossovers and special events. There have been several this year already, including a spy-themed event, a TERA crossover, and, for PUBG Mobile, a Resident Evil crossover.

Each crossover introduces a new gameplay mode or element, such as timed enemy encounters or special loot drops, along with plenty of exclusive skins, weapons and cosmetics.

The Resident Evil 2 remake event introduced a new battle royale mode with some interesting mechanics as well. Battles took place over the course of several days and nights, and all players were prone to attacks from RE characters during the day. At night, though, Tyrants and zombies came to life (or not-life, as the case may be) and added an extra survival element to the mode.

It seems possible this Godzilla crossover would do something similar, given the phrase "gargantuan twist" used in the original announcement. That might mean players have to avoid giant monsters and the Big Lizard itself while trying to take out opponents or may have to cooperate Pokemon GO Raid-style before turning against each other again.

We'll update once more information becomes available.

PUBG Mobile Encouraging Responsible Play with New Management System https://www.gameskinny.com/r1hpf/pubg-mobile-encouraging-responsible-play-with-new-management-system https://www.gameskinny.com/r1hpf/pubg-mobile-encouraging-responsible-play-with-new-management-system Wed, 15 May 2019 09:59:05 -0400 Josh Broadwell

Tencent and PUBG Corporation are rolling out a new system for PUBG Mobile today, simply called a "Gameplay Management" system.

It's designed specifically for players under 18 and should help curb excessively long play sessions by promoting a "sustainable and balanced" experience.

Players who begin PUBG Mobile will need to confirm their age before starting the game. If they are under 18, then they'll be required to acknowledge an advisory message about the gameplay. Messages reminding the player to take a break will show up periodically.

The messages reminding players to take a break aren't too different from the messages delivered to Monster Hunter players of all ages in games like Monster Hunter: Generations. The goal is essentially the same as well: promoting responsible time management decisions and develop a more positive mindset in general.

The system is expected to release globally, but in stages. So far, it's been implemented in North African and Asian regions, including Nepal and India, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, and Iraq, among others. No word yet on when it will make its way to the U.S., though.

As the Gameplay Management system becomes more widely available, Tencent and PUBG Corp. will launch education initiatives informing players about the Gameplay Management system and how it works. They'll also actively accept feedback and use it to improve the system over time.

PUBG Mobile is the first mobile game to implement a management system like this, and it's not a very surprising move. Recently, the game has received a generous helping of negative attention, mainly overseas, and several countries banned it either permanently or for a short time, including India, Nepal, and Iraq.

The general theme in each case of game bans was how the game encouraged distraction and took up too much valuable time. Interestingly, several of the cases in Nepal weren't limited to under 18s, and we're awaiting comment about whether this new Gameplay Management system will only target minors or if it will include messages aimed at adult players as well.

PUBG Mobile Being Temporarily Banned in Some Indian Cities, Players Arrested https://www.gameskinny.com/24mj9/pubg-mobile-being-temporarily-banned-in-some-indian-cities-players-arrested https://www.gameskinny.com/24mj9/pubg-mobile-being-temporarily-banned-in-some-indian-cities-players-arrested Thu, 14 Mar 2019 16:04:18 -0400 QuintLyn

Over the past few weeks, police in Rajkot, India, have been arresting players of the popular battle royale game, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Specifically, it appears the ban is for PUBG Mobile, which released worldwide in March 2018. 

The arrests come after a notification issued on March 6, banning the game. As of this writing, three other cities, including Gir Somnath, Bhavnagar, and Surat have also allegeldy issued bans. 

As expected, the bans are being issued over concerns that the game encourages violence and is addictive, causing children to perform badly in school.

The Rajkot ban was announced via social media, along with a ban on the Internet hoax known as the "Momo challenge".

Interestingly, it seems this is a limited-time ban, running from March 9 to March 30. During this time, anyone can file a complaint against people playing the game at their nearest police station.

The ban is reportedly being enforced under a section of the Indian Penal Code that punishes anyone whose actions are seen as causing "obstruction, annoyance or injury". The code allows for up to a month-long prison sentence and a small fine.

Since the ban became official, the Rajkot police have arrested 16 players.

Three of these players were arrested near the police headquarters, with officers reporting that they "were so engrossed in playing" that they didn't even notice they were being approached.

Also arrested was a group of undergraduate students and their younger friends. There were six in all.

The police also seized the players' phones for investigative purposes.

It seems that those currently being arrested are also being bailed out by the police. Although they will have to go to a courtroom trial for not complying with the ban notification.

PUBG Mobile Guide: How to Find Chicken Dinner Table https://www.gameskinny.com/dx2fs/pubg-mobile-guide-how-to-find-chicken-dinner-table https://www.gameskinny.com/dx2fs/pubg-mobile-guide-how-to-find-chicken-dinner-table Thu, 31 Jan 2019 10:37:23 -0500 Sergey_3847

There are several official servers in PUBG Mobile, which players from all over the world can use on their devices. However, those who want to have all the latest updates most likely play on a Global server, as this is where all the best things happen.

Since PUBG Mobile has been developed by a Chinese company Tencent, players who use Chinese or Global servers can witness a new secret item on the map: a fully functional chicken dinner table.

If you want to see it too, then follow our quick guide below.

Chicken Dinner Table Location in PUBG Mobile

The chicken dinner table can be found inside one of the buildings in the small village of Gatka, which is located in the western part of the map. Land there and search for a building with two red lanterns above the doors. You should have no problem finding it, as it is the largest building in the village.

The table offers a huge variety of dishes, including a roasted chicken, the symbol of victory in PUBG Mobile. You can freely interact with the dishes just like with any other items.

If you don't know how to play on the Chinese server, then here is a short instruction:

  • For Android users:
    1. Go to the Chinese server website
    2. Press the top yellow button
    3. Install and play
  • For iOS users:
    1. Go to App Store
    2. Install the game
    3. Play as guest

It is possible that you will have some connectivity problems in the process, as the Global version is known to have issues with network lagging. But it is still worth to see the new chicken dinner table in all its glory.

PUBG Mobile Advanced Tips and Tricks https://www.gameskinny.com/yrvwr/pubg-mobile-advanced-tips-and-tricks https://www.gameskinny.com/yrvwr/pubg-mobile-advanced-tips-and-tricks Tue, 23 Oct 2018 11:23:05 -0400 Sergey_3847

The next big PUBG Mobile tournament will take place at the end of 2018 in Dubai. The stakes are high as the prize pool rises up to $600,000. This should prompt every PUBG Mobile enthusiast to up their game and stop playing in a casual manner.

If you are seriously considering taking a part in this or any other tournament, then follow our advanced tips and tricks guide for PUBG Mobile that will help you understand the more nuanced aspects of the game and how you should approach them to win.

Follow the Sound

Every PUBG player knows how important sound is in this game. This topic has been even covered in our beginner's guide for PUBG Mobile. But you need to fully embrace the power of sound on your mobile device in order to really get the best out of your game.

Use closed headphones

It is understandable that playing PUBG Mobile on your phone or tablet is a lot more comfortable wearing a pair of light earbuds or at least open headphones. But these are not optimal choices for professional gaming. So use only closed headphones that will isolate as much outside noise as possible.

Stay in a safe zone and listen

The sound in PUBG Mobile is just as advanced as it is in the original game. So if you're using the right set of headphones, then you will hear a lot more than other players.

In this case, instead of constantly moving around you can sit in cover and wait for other players to pass by. Be vigilant and listen carefully! If you hear footsteps approaching, you will have at least 3 to 5 seconds to prepare.

In time you will be able to discern the direction the footsteps are coming from and the distance. In this way you will be able to move from one spot to another and hit every single opponent from a safe zone.

Carefully approach buildings

When you see a building, don't run inside immediately in an attempt to grab the loot.

First, approach the building in a crouching position to reduce the sound of your own footsteps. Then, sit still and listen if there are any noises inside -- another player could be there before you. If you hear footsteps inside getting closer to your position, shoot through the doors, a wall or a window and kill them while they're still inside.

If you will follow these tips, then you will have a far greater advantage over other players that use non optimal headphones or use none at all.

Apply 4-Finger Claw Grip

After mastering the sound you need to make sure that you can use all four of your fingers when controlling a character in PUBG Mobile. If you've been playing with two fingers only, then switching to four fingers will be hard, but absolutely necessary for high-level play.

Use trigger accessories

In the beginning it could be really hard to play with all four fingers at once. That's why you can soften the transition by first using trigger accessories that can be attached to your mobile device (see the picture below). Unfortunately, triggers are not allowed at tournaments, so you will eventually have to learn to use your touch screen without their aid.

Learn the Claw Grip technique

With the help of the claw grip you can move, aim and fire all at the same time. Watch the video above and many other videos online to learn how to properly use your fingers on your touchscreen.

Since most players use only two fingers, their reaction during a shoot-out will be delayed, while you will have a full advantage using this technique.

Apply proper control settings

Managing your fingers is just a part of the successful claw grip technique. You also need to make sure that your touchscreen and control scheme are properly adjusted.

Below you can find one of the most optimal control settings for claw grip, but you can optimize it to your own liking as well.

Cover Up in the Open Field

Hiding inside the buildings or using buildings as covers in urban areas is easy. But what do you do when you're out in the open field? There you become an easy target for a sniper or other players that know how to behave in open areas. Here are a few tips on what to do in the open field.

Move from one cover to another

Remember that you should never run across an open area uncovered. You've got a big non-literal target on your head when you're so easy to shoot.

If you run long enough for a sniper to hit you, then that's what will most likely happen. Instead move to one cover, such as a tree or a rock, and then search for the next closest one using your camera controls. Then quickly move to the next cover. If you see from your cover another player running through the field -- you will have an advantage to shoot them.

Climb the trees

Trees are excellent hiding and shooting spots. You can climb trees by jumping on the branches from the roof of a building or a hut that can be usually seen in the open areas.

Alternatively, you could use vehicles to get on the trees, but this requires some practice.

Advanced Weapon Tips

Obviously, you want to have the best weapon in the game. But if you don't really know how to use it, then a better player with a worse weapon will still be able to kill you. So here are a few tips on how to use weapons in PUBG Mobile.

Hold grenade before throwing

Many players make a mistake of throwing a grenade instantly. But this is a mistake since grenade has a 7 second delay before it explodes, which gives other players time to escape the explosion.

Instead hold the grenade before throwing for at least 5 seconds. Use this time to aim more accurately and to prevent your enemies from getting out of the way in time. Then you can throw it for an immediate explosion.

Use weapons with the same ammo

There are two main types of ammo in PUBG Mobile: 5.56 and 7.62. Use weapons that can be loaded only with either of these types of bullets. For example, AKM, DP-28, Kar-98, and SKS use the same type of ammo.

This will not only help you save time finding ammo for your weapons but also save space in your backpack.

Control your recoil

This isn't news at all, but for some reason many players still ignore the fact that you have to use attachments, such as compensators and suppressors that help you manage recoil on your weapons. Or learn to use burst-shooting technique, and then you can say that you don't need a compensator.

And there we have it, some of the fastest growing, gaming specific channels to hit YouTube this year.

\n

Growing a YouTube channel isn't easy. It takes hard work, dedication, creativity (possibly a willingness to give up sleep in order to get that perfect game clip). These YouTubers have all of that and more.

\n

For those of you who might be looking to grow your own channel, theirs are certainly worth taking a look at to see what they're doing right. Plus, it's just entertaining content.

\n

And, if you haven't gotten enough new YouTube gamers in your life, be sure to check out our list of the Best Obscure YouTubers for Gamers in 2018. It'll be worth the time.

The Gumball Gaming

\n

Finally, we have a channel dedicated to a little bit of everything -- only guaranteed to be in 1080p and with a dash of The Amazing World of Gumball AMVs thrown into the mix. Honestly, some people may be subscribing just for the music videos alone.

\n

Seriously, though. Gumball is all over the gaming content, uploading everything from Red Dead Redemption 2  and Fallout 76 to Grand Theft Auto 5 mods. And yes, there's Fortnite videos too.

\n

With Gumball's channel, there's something new (and different) almost every day. So viewers have a reason to keep coming back. And they do, too. Currently the channel boasts more than 23 million views, a pretty big number for a channel that's been around less than a year and is part of such a competitive space.

Electro

\n

And, we're back to Fortnite. I told you. Fortnite gets all the views -- particularly when the videos involve players trying to take advantage of each other. That's precisely what we have here.

\n

Electro's channel is dedicated to one thing, trolling potential scammers in Fortnite. And, since people love drama, it's a pretty solid niche. It's definitely working for Electro, who's built up a 100k+ following and accumulated over 15 million views. 

\n

Of course, it's not just the drama doing the work. Electro also makes solid use of the community features on YouTube, interacting with viewers whenever possible. Sometimes that's what it's all about.

Kayla

\n

And now, it's time for something totally different. That's right. Kayla's channel isn't related to battle royales, and it' not Minecraft -- although there is some building involved. We're talking Roblox here.

\n

Since launching their channel  in April, Kayla -- whose videos feature a Roblox character that sounds a bit like Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time -- has managed to attract over 100,000 subscribers.

\n

To be fair, Kayla does seem to have had some help growing the channel, forming a "crew" with other more established YouTubers. Perhaps they're real-world friends.  It doesn't really matter though. In the end, if your content isn't entertaining, you're not going to attract and keep viewers. So Kayla deserves the credit for all that hard work.

 dGamerHitman

\n

Well, here we are with yet another channel dedicated to a battle royale. dGamerHitman primarily dedicates his time to a 300-player battle royale named of Rules of Survival from Netease Games. Originally released as a mobile offering, the game launched on Steam earlier this year.

\n

Despite the title not being quite as well-known as Fortnite or PUBG, Rules of Survival  dGamer seems to be doing quite well with it. Since launching his channel in  February, he's accumulated over 88k follwers and counting.

\n

Of course, it may also help that he dabbles in other things from time to time, playing games like the mobile MOBA battle royale Survival Heroes and even giving Tencent's battle royale Ring of Elysium a go.

For fans of the battle royale genre that might be a bit burnt out on Fortnite and PUBG, dGamer's channel is a nice compromise.

Ibe

\n

Because battle royales are all the rage, we're... Well, to be honest, we'll probably have a few BR channels on this list. They're what's booming.

\n

Ibe's channel, which launched back in April, is dedicated to that other popular battle royale, PUBG -- or, rather, PUBG Mobile. (If you're looking to get into YouTubing, mobile content seems like a pretty good bet.)

\n

Billing himself as the "world's GREATEST (worst) and BEST (awful) American (Muslim) PUBG Mobile Sniper of ALL Time (just no)", Ibe's accumulated over 4 million views and 62k subs since he first launched his channel.

\n

Like other game specific channels, his features update summaries, highlights, tutorials, and more. He even covers esports events. For PUBG Mobile fans, Ibe's channel offers plenty of entertaining content.

ELTE Sauk

\n

Okay gang, I'm a little at a loss on how to introduce this next channel. I kinda hate that I feel the need to put a warning here, but here it is. Some of the videos on Sauk's channel are going to be a bit depressing.

\n

Sauk isn't as prolific of an uploader as some of the others here are, but he still deserves recognition for the hard work he's doing. He's 15, still in high school, and recently learned he has a disease called polycythemia (hence the depressing videos), but he still works hard to post Fortnite Battle Royale gameplay videos on a regular basis.

\n

He puts a lot of energy into these videos in order to make them entertaining and takes the time to engage with his viewers on social media, taking questions for Q&A videos and the like.

\n

The amazing thing is that even with everything going on in his life right now, he's managed to grow a sizeable audience in less than six months.  He also streams on Twitch, but YouTube is where he's most active.

Logdotzip PE - Minecraft Pocket Edition

\n

When it come to raking in the views, Minecraft is definitely a good way to go about it. Although.. I'm not sure if we should be surprised that Logdotzip PE is doing it with a channel dedicated solely to Minecraft Pocket Edition or not. 

\n

It might seem like it would limit Logdotzip's audience, but often, all that really matters is the quality (and quantity) of the content. This channel has plenty of both with videos covering maps and mods, tips and tricks, and content updates being uploaded to the channel on a nearly daily basis since June.

\n

It also doesn't hurt that Logotzip decided not to go it alone and works with his partner PrestonPlayz to create engaging and informative content.

Creating content online and getting it noticed can seem like a nearly impossible task. Competing on a platform like YouTube is especially daunting due to the nearly endless influx of people trying to grab their own little bit of internet notoriety -- and cash.

\n

But, that doesn't mean carving out your own space and attracting a solid audience is impossible. It just takes a lot of determination and work. In fact, some YouTubers work so hard at building their audience that in less than a year they're rocking a five- or six-digit subscriber count.

\n

Whatever it is they're doing, these YouTubers are doing it right.

\n

So, with the end of 2018 coming up fast, we thought it appropriate to introduce those of you who may not have come across them yet to some of these fast growing channels. After all, that kind of work deserves recognition.

Massive PUBG Mobile Update Adds New Jungle Map, Weapons, And More https://www.gameskinny.com/mm00l/massive-pubg-mobile-update-adds-new-jungle-map-weapons-and-more https://www.gameskinny.com/mm00l/massive-pubg-mobile-update-adds-new-jungle-map-weapons-and-more Fri, 14 Sep 2018 12:15:52 -0400 QuintLyn

Today's a big day for PUBG Mobile. Not only has the game surpassed the 20 million daily active players mark (see more about that in the video above), it's also received a pretty sizeable update -- the crown jewel of which is the highly anticipated Sanhok jungle map.  A much smaller map than PUBG Mobile players are used to, Sanhok offers players a combat experience that's more compact, forcing everyone into close quarters.

Also included in today's update are new weapons and vehicles -- including a flare gun and a muscle car, tweaks to the game's social and ranking systems, the addition of Season Page that compiles a list of your data, and anti-cheating measures. Cheaters will now have to contend with an improved recognition system for cheating plug-ins, as well as the ability for other players to report them via different areas of the game.

As noted, the update is available today, so PUGB Mobile players can hop in and test their jungle battle skills right away.

How to Win Chicken Dinner After the New PUBG 0.5.0 Update https://www.gameskinny.com/j1tp3/how-to-win-chicken-dinner-after-the-new-pubg-050-update https://www.gameskinny.com/j1tp3/how-to-win-chicken-dinner-after-the-new-pubg-050-update Thu, 03 May 2018 11:42:46 -0400 Stephanie Tang

The hipster gaming argument about "who dun it first" is eternal when it comes to describing the Battle Royale style of gameplay and how it has come to redefine the FPS formula. Was it H1Z1, was it not, and isn't it all just an ultra-realistic single-player/team deathmatch anyway? 

What can't be argued is the global phenomenon that exploded out of the advent of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, even before the full game finally hit virtual store shelves. It put PUBG Corp and Tencent Games on the map, spawned a huge number of PC and mobile clones, and inspired Epic Games to push out its own BR contender, FortniteWhile a number of the most recent news and developments in PUBG land seem to revolve around catching up on mobile platforms and arguing about copyright infringements, the devs are finally taking a good hard look at what keeps the players fighting for winner, winner, chicken dinner -- the game itself.

This latest update adds a ton of new possibilities, many of which are geared towards the more experienced player (different gun attachments, new grips, the new SLR, etc.) and the gamers PUBG wants to lure back from Fortnite. You can find the full patch notes here, but check out some of the tips below that'll help you keep playing at your best, even with all these new changes.

1. Find a new place to camp.

This applies particularly if you're playing a lot on the Miramar map, because the devs have made a bunch of world changes. A lot of players have noticed that their usual haunts have been changed around some, and what were once high-cover camp spots are now not nearly as ideal. 

A few tweaks to the map have made other areas a little easier to pass through and scavenge in, however. The oasis is now a lot bigger than it used to be, and more buildings have been added around it. These add more opportunities to sneak around undetected, and up your chances of finding more loot as well. 

Moreover, if you're out in the open world on foot, you'll now find a little more cover to hide your approach. That's handy, especially when you can't find a vehicle and you've got to really hoof it to stay in the safe zones. 

2. Know your vehicles and what they can do. 

It's no fun to run -- not in MMOs and not in FPS games with giant maps. When you can get your hands on a vehicle -- any vehicle -- it means a quick getaway and a heck of a lot of fun, especially if you're playing in a squad and you've got guns at your back to watch for other players out to snipe your ride. 

Vehicles aren't new to the game, so most players should already know their upsides (speeeeeeed) and their downsides (noise). There's also the differences between each of the vehicles (e.g. you don't want to bring the van, sturdy as it may be, off-roading). And now there's a new car in the mix, exclusive to the Miramar map -- the Mirado. 

A classic muscle car, the Mirado is probably a little more style (and straight-up fun) than it is function ... but there's no denying that it is the fastest vehicle you're going to find for zooming along long stretches of road. If you're down to the last minute between safe zones, some extra speed might be your best bet in beating the city traffic and staying alive. 

3. Bring out the new PUBG SLR.

It's new, it's shiny, and almost everyone in the game wants a chance to try it on for size. The camp sniper meta just got kicked up a notch, especially since this gun packs a powerful punch but has a lot of recoil. If you use this gun, you're going to want to be sure of your first shot since you'll have to work for the next one (10 bullets per mag of 7.62 mm ammo, although this can be extended to 20 if you can find the right attachment).  

Also keep in mind that when everyone else wants the gun, way more people are going to be carrying it around, and even more people are going to want to pry it out of your cold, dead fingers.

If you opt for using it, know the right situation for it to shine. If you don't use it, go the opposite way -- pile on the armor and practice your tracking -- you'll land six bullets dead in the brainpan before the other guy can recenter after three shots. 

4. Level-3 helmets just upped the ante on care packages. 

It's not just the guns -- it's having the resources to stay alive when other people are shooting back at you. The closer you get to the end game, the more geared up your opponents are going to be. You may have stocked up on new character cosmetics, but nobody is going to turn down the opportunity for armoring up when they get the chance. 

This latest patch has made the draw of the loot crate even stronger now that the highest-grade helmet can no longer be acquired via scavenging through the regular world map -- they'll only be made available in these massive, greed-laden murderfests around the boxes. The same goes for the SR quick-draw magazines and SR extended quick-draw magazines.

If you're going to try your chance at obtaining it, get in and get out as soon as you can!

5. Rethink your swimming strategy. 

If you've found yourself winning games by hiding out in the water, you may want to consider a new way to get from the islands to the mainland. In an effort to keep all the underwater rabbiting at a minimum, you can only stay submerged for a max of 15 seconds now (compared to the previous 35), and when you've run out of air, you'll start taking damage (10 per second, up from 4). 

Once you lift your head out of the water, you'll need to wait 4 seconds (up from 1) before you recover enough breath to dive down again. What was once an excellent escape route is no longer as effective. Time to start hunting down a boat in order to make your quick getaways on water (although players should also note that boats now sink when they are destroyed). 

6. Other things you'll want to remember: 

  • A considerable degree of rebalancing has happened to the existing guns so that there's no "best AR," SMGs are better in short-range situations, and shotguns have better damage and range now. 
  • There are a number of new grips and attachments that can adjust how the new and existing guns fire, how much ammo they can hold, etc. Many of them will operate slightly differently or do different damage from how they used to behave, and the same goes for throwables. 
  • Damage from different kinds of body/head/limb shots has been adjusted. 
  • Movement speeds have changed and will be determined by what weapon you're carrying. Weapon sway has been tweaked. 

All of the above means that even if you're a seasoned pro with a favorite set of guns, things are going to look and feel a lot different. Test them out a little before you really take on the whole battlefield!

How to Get Your Fastest Chicken Dinner Ever in PUBG Mobile Arcade https://www.gameskinny.com/w5y8x/how-to-get-your-fastest-chicken-dinner-ever-in-pubg-mobile-arcade https://www.gameskinny.com/w5y8x/how-to-get-your-fastest-chicken-dinner-ever-in-pubg-mobile-arcade Thu, 26 Apr 2018 13:02:52 -0400 Stephanie Tang

In a bid to outdo its growing list of competitors, PUBG Mobile just launched a massive new update with version 0.4.0 that includes the new Arcade Mode as an alternative to the existing 100-player game mode that launched the original PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds to fame on PC. 

You now have the option of pitting yourself in a smaller map with only 28 players, all while still allowing for the traditional PUBG squad options: solo, duo, and 4-man teams. The wait time in the Lobby is shorter, games that could take up to half an hour at a time (if you made it to the top 5) now last approximately 10 minutes, and the hunt for resources is even more desperate than ever before.

Since its release, PUBG Mobile has achieved the not-insignificant task of bringing the thrilling suspense of the original to smaller screens -- and with great effect. Now Arcade Mode comes as an acknowledgement of the limitations of trying to play on mobile -- where players want a smaller time commitment, shorter matches, and more action straight away. Arcade Mode is the fast food version of PUBG and just what we needed for the interruption-heavy nature of mobile gaming. 

If you're just starting out in PUBG Mobile, check out our beginner's guide for tips on staying alive. That'll definitely get you started.

But what do you need to change about your usual PUBG tactics in order to "get gud" in Arcade? Here are some of our best suggestions!

1. Fly, you fools!

Every second counts in PUBG, but never more than in Arcade Mode, where action strikes fast and hard, and can catch everyone unprepared -- particularly right at touchdown. The second you start a game, be prepared to check out the map, time your jump, and dive -- pushing yourself (directional stick forward) to get to the ground as fast and as far away from a bare-handed fistfight to the death as you can. Watch for other players as they exit the plane, and plan ahead.

The maps are more heavily populated (villages versus open fields), so you're likely to find houses nearby pretty much wherever you drop in which to rummage for stuff. While weapons and supplies are more liberally spawned on these maps than usual, you've still got a vested interest in getting to them before anyone else does!

2. #SquadGoals

It's hard to have an edge when you're running solo in Arcade (or in regular mode, for that matter) right from the get-go, but with this latest update, you can take advantage of the Follow the Leader option in the Lobby. 

When you're playing in a duo or as a 4-man team, you can designate one player to act as the Leader. This means that that person is the one who will control when, where, and how fast you dive when getting down to the map. You land together, so no one gets stranded, and you're at a greater advantage when it comes to coordinating a pitched team fight!

3. Maintain your Situational Awareness

The above should go without saying, particularly in a game where you often lie in wait for other players to stumble upon you and where the safe zone is constantly shrinking. But in Arcade, you should also take into account the map type -- which is to say, how to move when you're going through and around a number of different houses. 

The extra elevations mean that if someone is well-situated, they are in the perfect position to snipe you through a window. Hug walls, close doors behind you, listen for footsteps, and watch your windows while you're scavenging! 

4. Wait a few seconds before heading over to loot a body. 

This is usually advice that I'd leave for the later stages of gameplay in a normal round of PUBG, but it's something you're going to want to keep in mind almost from the get-go in Arcade Mode. Chances are that you'll have someone close by you who's heard the murder ruckus and is in a better position to snipe you off or at least land a few more shots on you while you're still focused on loot and unaware. 

Know the limitations of your controls -- if you're playing on a phone the way it was intended to be played (PUBG Mobile has a pretty big problem with players using emulators to play it on PC with a mouse and keyboard), you turn like a tank. Don't give someone else the upper hand!

Other things to note: 

  • Don't be afraid to run away and heal if you have to.
  • Configure your controls before jumping into a game. 
  • Use headphones!

---

That said, you should have no problem getting started in PUBG Mobile Arcade mode. Play with friends when you can -- that little bit of coordination will go a long way. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more PUBG Mobile guides and info!

Too Fast Glitch

\n

It's one thing when some bug happens to you, but what if you stumble upon somebody who actually got glitched? One YouTuber spotted either a very lucky guy or simply a hacker, who moved so fast that it was impossible to kill him.

\n

If it's a temporary glitch, then it's fine, of course, but if it's a cheater, then the developer simply must deploy an anti-cheat system as soon as possible.

Flying Glitch

\n

Looks like we've tried everything: walking on the clouds, getting underground, and now we can also try flying. There is a secret place on one of the bridges in PUBG Mobile that glitches and sends you flying into the sky.

\n

Well, you aren't exactly flying; it's more like falling. But who cares? It's definitely one of the funniest glitches in the game so far.

Underground Glitch

\n

It's hard to say how exactly you can get under the ground in PUBG Mobile, but some players have been successful by entering the tunnel on the eastern part of the map.

\n

Otherwise, it can happen as a vehicle glitch after you drop off. The game will unexpectedly spawn you under the ground, and you can even use it to win the match.

Any Clothing Glitch

\n

How about unlocking any clothing you want for your character without paying any money? Well, there is a temporary solution -- or a glitch, to be exact. You can choose any item from your inventory, then press "Reset Appearance" and "Exit."

\n

In this simple way, you can put on any clothes you want. However, the glitch will not work in the game, but only inside the menu.

First-Person Glitch

\n

There is no first-person mode in PUBG Mobile yet. But it looks like some players have managed to trick the game into letting them have one. You can achieve the effect by switching the gun and activating scope at the same time.

\n

It looks a bit funny, but hey, it's a first-person view nonetheless. So enjoy this glitch while it hasn't been fixed yet.

Last Circle Glitch

\n

You probably have heard about this glitch. It usually appears when players use bots, and the last circle narrows down to a tiny beam of blue light, and nobody wins in the end.

It's fun when bugs and glitches make you laugh, but this kind of glitch is annoying, and players should just stop using AI bots.

Stuck in the Sky Glitch

\n

Sometimes you cannot even start to play simply because the game won't let you drop. As seen in the video, one player recorded the glitch when he got stuck in the sky. At this point, you can't do anything, but you can watch other players from above.

You can achieve this effect by removing your parachute too early. Just beware that it's not as fun as it may look.

New Bug in PUBG Mobile Costs Players Hard-Earned Chicken Dinners https://www.gameskinny.com/5d862/new-bug-in-pubg-mobile-costs-players-hard-earned-chicken-dinners https://www.gameskinny.com/5d862/new-bug-in-pubg-mobile-costs-players-hard-earned-chicken-dinners Tue, 03 Apr 2018 12:59:21 -0400 Will Phillips

Within the last 24 hours, there has been a new bug plaguing those playing the popular battle royale game PUBG Mobile. I myself have unfortunately faced this bug, as have many others according to the frequency of posts about it in online forums. This bug essentially makes it so the number of “alive” shown is way higher than the amount of players that actually are alive.

In the earlier circles, this issue can just seem like an odd game with an unusual amount of people surviving. However, some players have gotten to the point where there is no denying that there is an issue with the number of “alive” being represented.

The worst part about this is that even if you’ve fought to be the last one standing, if the game still considers there to be “10 alive,” then you're going to get 10th place. This makes it so many players, myself included, aren’t getting the rightful chicken dinners or increased ranks that they deserve.

My theory on what is causing this bug is that there is an issue with the game not spawning the proper amount of bots from the get go, and then not updating the number of alive shown to properly compensate.

Fortunately, Tencent has been amazing with communicating with their players, and have already let players know that they’re working on a fix. This is comforting to know, and forecasts that the future of this game will be a healthy one.

Message from Tencent to PUBG Mobile community indicating that a fix is being worked on

In the meantime, if you care about your rank at all, I would suggest you choose a different game to pass the time with until they fix this issue.
