One of the implemented Mechanics in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) is the Dynamic Weather Conditions. By having a dynamic system, it alters the way players behave in the battle area. A mechanic that does not remain constant throughout the battle, it will have an impact on the Player’s strategy, forcing them to tread out in the open during sunset, or force them back indoors when it shifts to Clear Skies. In this way, it gives a refreshing feel to the battle area, enabling players to employ different strategies while making the environment “alive” so to speak.
