Player Unknown Battle Grounds - Would I be doomed?

MightyUncleanMightyUnclean Member EpicPosts: 2,320
So I keep hearing that the hype train is rolling hard for PUBG.  I have some friends that are playing it.  But me, I'm old, slow, and uncoordinated.  Is there any place for someone like me in the game?  Or would my life be made a living hell by twitchy, head-shotting, 12-year-old kids who would dance on my corpse?

    Pretty much.
    I didnt play PUBG because i didnt want to pay for something Im unsure I will enjoy. But I played Fortnight Battle Royale - that is pretty much the clone of PUBG.


    Now I am not the best FPS player, but not the worst either - kind of mid ground.

    The game for me goes like this:

    You jump out. Than if you are lucky to survive long enough to find weapon, before meeting someone you can continue. This would happen 70%.

    After that you will meet someone. Let say 50%-50% chance he will have better weapon and kill you.

    After that your chances drop drastically, because you are now against better players with better weapons.

    And this is where game ends, pretty much 99%


    However that being said.

    I did manage to WIN !!! one time :smiley:

    Well no ... actually i stopped playing after I won.

    In a way - I think its too random. And most of matches you have no chance of winning.

    Maybe if you play with a team, there is more strategy...


    In any case - try Fortnight-BR , its free. Better than putting money for PUBG and seeing you dont like it

    PUBG is far better than Fortnite Battle Royale.

    PUBG has actual stealth mechanics (going prone in grass or crouching in a shrub) - it makes for actual cover tactical gameplay - Fortnite BR is a joke in this area.

    Gun accuracy in PUBG is dependent on player aim not RNG gun rarity BS of Fornite.

    Sound is massively important in PUBG, gun fire direction and distance can be identified via sound, doors opening, people runnin etc... again this provides for an actual 3d sound immersive experience - Fornite again yeah, no.


    Fortnite BR has building - which youd think would be awesome if you played Fornite game - well it sucks in BR. The whole pickaxing walls mechanic IMO just feels out of place in BR mode.

    Dont get me wrong Fortnite is a good game, shame that they missed the mark on Fornite BR

    The only thing that Forntite has going for itself is free to play - if PUBG was F2P.... heh it would be like Overwatch killing Battleborn

    As far as actually being able to play PUBG without reflexes - dont expect to win, but you can get into top 20 without firing a single shot and just going for cover and staying inside the play circle.

    You can actually try to see how long you can survive by hiding and avoiding all others - without any weapons, just let others kill eachother. 

    it is a tactical way to play not requiring much reflexes at all

    This works in PUBG due to being able to crouch and go prone which provides amazing cover

    OK, thanks guys.  The aiming/hitting in Fortnite isn't skill-based, but based on RNG?

    Both.  Higher quality guns are more accurate.  Which is pretty bad for a competitive multiplayer game, on my opinion.  But maybe appeals to others.

    Hmm, maybe Fortnite would work for me.  How twitchy and aiming-intensive is the combat?

    That would have to be answered by someone else.  I looked into both games, but decided it wouldn't be the type of competitive shooter I saw myself sticking with.

    DMKano owns both from what I understand, but really dislikes Fortnite.  However, he could still probably comment on the level of twitch required to be successful.

    20 dollar game with $60 hype. A lot of cheaters this past week and even after a leaderboard wipe the cheaters are still at the top... that rampant.

    My guess would be PUBG, but cheaters are rampant in ALL FPS games

     PUBG has a higher skill cap, so it's more rewarding the better you play, be it solo or in a group. Fortnite is more fun especially with a team because of all the random wonky elements that used to be present in PUBG are still there in Fortnite. 

     I'm talking about the ability for random silly plays and things to make happen with traps and other building elements. 

     PUBG was more fun when we could send cars flying through the air doing backflips, and landing on a building killing a spectator. All while still being able to play competitively if you wanted. Now with first person only, and the many changes it's become a bit stale. 

     In the end one is free so why not both? That's the easy answer. If you only want to play one that's going to depend on what you want.

    As I said Fortnite is free , PUBG is 30$

    Try the free one first, see if its something you enjoy, and than decide.
