What up gamers? Hear the new buzz around the town and now you are here.

Battlegrounds or PUBG whatever you call it, the huge trend setter game is all you can hear or talk about right now. Giving a serious competition to Fortnite, PUBG pc has created a huge buzz among gamers all around the world, and not just gamers but almost everyone in general. And why won’t it? This game deserves all the buzz it created.



With each update the game is getting better and better on its part and before you know it the next update thrills you even more.

But, before we jump into deep let’s dig into what is this game?

Let’s pick from basic.

Player’s Unknown Battle ground or PUBG as you will hear it most often, is an online multiplayer game but more than just a multiplayer game. You are against all and the last surviving souls win the game.

It is a battle royale game.

The game takes you to an unknown ground and all you need to do is survive. And, to make sure no one kills you, you need to kill them first.

But what makes it even more thrilling is how it starts. In PUBG PC, you start from scratch. Jumping out of a plane to an UNKNOWN BATTLE GROUND without guns or anything (*in your underwear to be precise). You need to go searching for your weapons, ammo, health-kits, clothes and everything.

You can find these things in houses, mansions, shelters and other buildings. You can drive cars, bikes and other vehicles to keep moving and this is where to learn another survival tip.


Why should you?

Because the game is designed this way.

Concept Of CIrcle

So, the huge battlegrounds for players are too huge for 100 players. If the players are far off from each other, not killing each other to survive, you will have to run around the entire island searching for people to kill which will eventually bore you. To fill this loophole, the concept of circles emerges out.

A few seconds after your landing, a white circle appears on your map, this is your cue to run from whenever you are and get inside that circle. This circle gives you a specific range where you have to survive. The circles start shrinking as time passes by and you have to keep up with it.

After a few minutes, a bigger blue circle emerges out on the map. The area inside the blue circle is called “Playzone” which directly means that you need to be inside this circle. If you are outside the white circle but inside the white circle, you still have a chance of survival. The only thing you need to do in PUBG PC is stay inside the white circle and stay alive!


While the white circle is the safer option for you to be, being outside the white circle and inside the blue circle won’t kill you.

But let us warn you that as the game progresses, these circles shrink in radius and the white and blue circles come closer.


You’ll die. Well, not instantly but your health will start decreasing at a faster rate. So, if you can make it to the white circle, run!

The main objective of the whole circles concept was to exhilarate the players by bringing them closer and also speeding up the whole killing process.

PUBG PC allows to you to play in various modes including solo, duo and a squad upto 4 players

Also, you can talk to your squad members while in the game and strategize your actions in real time. The game also allows you to listen to at the other people are talking about. This works in solo mood too, btw!

Sounds exciting, right?


PUBG is fucking awesome! One of the reasons why people say this is how thrilling it gets with each mode.

The game is divided into two broad modes which are CLASSIC and ARCADE.

In the classic mode, you even choose your own map which are just two for now- Erangel and Miramar.

 The Erangel is sort of a forest-y area with trees, bushes and other things which is great for hiding and killing. You can lay down flat among those tall grasses or just crouch inside that bush and kill people. WORKS AWESOME

Miramar is kind of a desert-y area. You won’t be able to hide a lot but it makes up a great place for sniping and assaulting.

You can choose either of the maps or both.

The other mode is ARCADE.

If you want to get that adrenaline rush, try the Arcade. This mode has four maps which include War, Mini-zone, Quick-match and Sniper training. All of these are short and exciting matches, the area will be small and there will be a BLOODBATH FOR SURVIVAL.

But before we start off bragging more features about the game, you need to find a way as to how do you play PUBG PC?

No rocket science or tech savvy mind is required for this and don’t worry if you don’t have a gaming pc or laptop, the minimum system requirements are not that high.

Tried all the cool stuff but still not happy?

Is your PUBG cashing over and over again?

Well, don’t stress out. This problem is faced by many others and we have some stuff that you can do to fix it.

If you are playing PUBG on PC using steam or whatever medium, the following methods will definitely help you out.


Although this is done automatically most of the time, as soon as a new patch is released from developer’s side, the game automatically updates. But there can be a slight possibility that it didn’t do that on yours. The best and the easiest thing that you can do is check for an update or a new patch and install it. Restart your game and see if that still works.

No? Let’s try the next one then.


If the game isn’t the problem, it can be your PC and by this, I mean your video card drivers. When these video card drivers are not updated or installed properly, the game can lag or crash often. So, to your video card setting and check if you are using the right drivers and whether or not they updated. Also try uninstalling and reinstalling your graphic drivers.

Still crashing?


The game often crashes when the basic system requirements are not met. Although this won’t trouble you during installation but some low system specs may crash the game.

Also, you can try lowering down the graphics of the game and see if that was the problem.

With most systems, (which do not have those high-end gaming specs) playing the game in high resolutions and graphics can lead to lag and glitches, and ultimate crashing.


Here is a quick fix.

  • Go to C:\Games\steam\steamapps\common\pubg\tslgame\binaries\win64\

Once you do, delete the folder and Marrifield cache.

  • Verify GAME FILES

Right click on PUBG on Steam and go to properties.

Click on the local files and select verify integrity of game files.

This will download and remove all the corrupt files off your system and you can enjoy a lag free and crash free gaming.


If you have overclocked your GPY to get increase the power and performance, and get some extra FPS, then try changing it back to normal. Chances are you have overclocked it and the game began to crash.

In the end, PUBG is a game that you might want to try once in your life and we bet you will try it hell lot more than once. The thrill and awesomeness of playing it with your squad is too damn high. So, go solo or up with your squad, these were the best and ONLY LEGIT WAYS to play PUBG PC.
