PUBG is best known for its graphics and the gameplay performance even though it is not fully optimised, it is one kind of game where the low end PC’s can never think of playing in it. By far this is one of the battle royale games you must first try if you’re new to the battle royale scenario.

The biggest rivalry of PUBG is Fortnite. Even though Fornite has some cartoony graphics and difficult mechanics, people still play it. Some prefer PUBG some Prefer Fortnite each of them is good at their own speciality and uniqueness.

There are different play styles to play such as the player Camp, Hide in a bush, hold an area and rush everyone you see and what not. By playing as a squad you not only require game sense but also requires more co-ordination and co-operation to get frags or win the game.

After the 7.2 update PUBG added bots to the game, It is controlled by complex AI engine to make it as realistic as possible, Yes we know how AI bot play it is not comparable to the real players, still it's great for PUBG to add bots way ahead of its competitors. These bots can be spotted all around the map. It will fill the players for an unfilled lobby, It will be spawned according to the zone and the player locations with some decent loots.
