If you are going to just start this game, you are surely going to love it. There's also the matter of finding the best landing location for your game, and so here we'll cover those as well as anything else worth knowing about Erangel, including and Erangel vehicles, weapons or gear exclusive to the map, and Erangel strategies for coming out on top. The more time you take to find weapons, the less chances you have to survive for longer time. If you are playing alone, then you can undoubtedly land here. When the timer runs out, a larger blue circle will begin to close in around the white one.
Also, I get a vehicle nearby most of the times. Eventually, the play area constricts; if you check the in-game map with the M key, you'll see a white circle designating the new play field, with a timer in the bottom-right corner of your display. If you're caught outside the white circle when the blue one arrives, you'll start to take damage--and the longer the game goes on, the more quickly the blue forcefield will kill you. You can stay in the game's voice chat, but set your own chat to party-only - occasionally you'll overhear enemy teams who forgot to set theirs to private. Fire a gun and you'll be heard for a huge distance around you, often drawing more players to your location. When it's raining, be aware that moving fast causes a splashing sound which can also give the game away rather badly. If you can get in, get lucky and get out, good luck to you.
We actually go much more in depth on in our dedicated guide, but here are some highlights below. Red zones are by no means an instant death sentence, however. The same goes for equipable items, with high-level helmets, armor, and backpacks mostly located around landmarks. Keep this page bookmarked for all the latest developments! The goal is to be the last player — or squad — standing. Here you will get High Quality and High Quantity loot with Moderate Risk factor. But, keep one thing in mind. Otherwise, death is round the corner.
When you stand near gear you want to pick up, you'll see it arrayed in the top-left corner of the screen, and you can pick items up from there instead of looking at them individually and hitting F or X. Were you standing right in front of a door when an enemy decided to blow it out with their shotgun? If you decide to drop here from the plane, then at least choose to land a bit to the east of the base. After deciding on a location, jump from the plane and aim yourself toward your chosen landing zone. Use them as a last resort! Keep one eye on the blue circle, and play around the edges of the area. The Sosnovka Military Base has the finest loot that you can get -- both in terms of the building itself and in the drops you'll grab off killed players. For players just starting out, a good thing to watch for are open doors.
Usually overflowing with assault rifles and armor, the bunkers are incredibly hazardous thanks to the wealth of choke points and narrow tunnels, most of which have no cover. High-level players also lean mid-combat to make themselves more awkward to hit. Using more boosters will give you other benefits, like a slightly increased run speed and quicker gun handling, that can be essential in the late game. Just know that players who do more killing often end up with better gear, which can stack the deck against you as you get into Battlegrounds' later moments. Getting into combat After searching dirty houses and rolling around in bushes, you'll eventually need to enter combat to come out on top. When you first drop in, make sure that you travel all the way to the western part of the map to the city of Georgopol -- this is the safest bet for looting in the early game.
Searching through smaller settlements, melee weapons, pistols, and shotguns will be the most common, while rifles are often a harder to find. Depending on where the plane flies, accessible landing zones may vary but you'll always have a range of locations to choose from. While for a fair majority of the round it's possible to avoid combat entirely, you'll likely find players as the playable space gets smaller. And each smaller circle means there's a better and better chance you'll run into other players. If you have a good cover and want to shoot your target from a distance, it would be correct to use semi-auto mode. By the later stages of any match, expect your opponents to be pretty well decked out. With five warehouses, two houses and one large military building, chances are you can equip a full squad here, but expect to have to fend off some serious competition.
With the arrival of version 1. Be careful when entering these buildings, though, as you might not be the first one there. During this time, you can see other players and move your character to avoid them. That means you're diving forwards, quickly, rather than down or slowly. You'll find very high quality loot here, but in much smaller numbers, so it's better for solo and duo than squads. All the buildings have more that 2-3 floors each and thus the amount of loot is very high.
Leave some on the floor in the middle of a room, and enemies who enter will assume the building is safe, making them easy to quickly pick off. Now, the game has arrived on Xbox One through Xbox Game Preview — the Early Access equivalent on the console. But to win, you'll need to be both quick and intelligent. At the first level, your character will gradually heal, which means you can use boosters to restore yourself to 100 percent from 75 percent health, but gradually, over several seconds. If you want to learn the feel of weapons and fighting, then spend a few games spawning in busy spots, as it'll pay off in the long run.
When it's perfectly in line i. As we've mentioned earlier on in the vehicle section of this guide, this is a much smaller map and you should be very careful about giving your position away. If you're in a car, you can often successfully drive through. Most of the times you'll encounter other players, you'll hear them long before you see them. Below is a list of rare items you can find only in air drops.
These are all healing items, but they don't all work in the same way. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Know where your nearest point of refuge is and be ready to move to it in a flash. If you can land nearby and drive there it's a better bet, as combat can be tricky. Another matter to consider is how dangerous these locations can be. Other handy controls include the B key or left on the D-pad, which lets you switch your weapons' firing modes, and Tab or Option, which opens your inventory screen and lets you quickly loot nearby bodies within a short distance.
