Keep an Eye Out For Overwatch Positions
Learn How to Snap
Snap around 360-degrees to check for enemies very fast and also to cycle through snipe-points that have already been noted. Also snap if taking fire from behind, instead of slowly rotating the camera around.
When bullets impact objects in PUBG, the way the debris scatters offers a clue as to where the shot originated. Debris usually scatters parallel to the origin of the shot or towards the direction of it.
Shots coming from ahead and behind a player sound the same because PUBG relays directional information from the left and right better than from the front and back. Change the orientation of the character by moving their head to either the right or left. This helps in listening for the shooters’ position. When the sound of the weapon being fired sounds louder in one ear of the headset/headphone more than the other, that’s the direction the shots are coming from.
There are three sounds a player hears when a shot is fired towards their direction. There’s the sound of the gun, the sound of the bullet whizzing past or making an impact and then the crack of the bullet when it breaks the sound barrier. Pay close attention to the sound of the gun and disregard the others. Only the sound of the gun will assist in determining the origin of the shots and the location of the shooter.
