PUBG New State is a battle royale game launched by Korean developers Krafton. This is a revisioned version of the hit game PUBG, made solely for Android and iOS smartphones.
The battle royale genre has always been a competitive playground ever since PUBG made it popular back in 2018. To take the next evolutionary step towards the future, they launched this game that takes players to the future while retaining the same gameplay elements.
To get really good in this game and earn lots of chicken dinners (being the victor), you need to read this blog. Here you will find the best tips and tricks in this PUBG New State beginners guide.
PUBG New State Game Modes
The PUBG New State alpha test currently has two different game modes. They are:
1. Battle Royale
This is the original PUBG game mode. As you already know, this is the mode where you land on a map with 99 other players. Your sole objective – be the last one standing.
For those uninitiated to battle royale games, you start by landing on this map from an airplane with no items. As you land headfirst, your first task is to loot the items off the ground and from inside buildings. Here, you will get lots of weapons, armor, and various consumable items like health packs.
Since this is a survival game, your task of achieving a chicken dinner can be achieved in two ways. You can not partake in combat with other players and wait till the end to swoop in on the remaining survivors for the win.
The second way is to go full gung ho with guns blazing like John Rambo. If you are confident about your shooting skills, then this might be your preferred choice of action. However, you might also end up digging an early grave if you are not careful.
Here, it is important to note that as the match continues, the zone will start getting smaller. If you are ever caught outside the zone, you will start to lose health. Therefore, staying inside the zone is mandatory. Plus, since the zone brings all the players closer to each other, it makes room for more gunfights and explosions to take place.
The best thing about the battle royale mode is that you can choose to jump in on the map alone, with your partner in crime, or with three other buddies. If you die, you get knocked out. During this incapacitated state, your teammate needs to revive you, and vice versa.
2. Team Deathmatch
Straight from the original version of PUBG mobile, PUBG New State also has its own 4v4 deathmatch mode. This harkens back to the more traditional FPS format of two teams duking it out against each other. Here, you select the gun you want and head inside the smaller area to slaughter whoever comes your way.
If you die, you get to respawn in your base. Your team needs to have 40 kills to win the match. I highly recommend playing this mode since it lets you practice and sharpen your aiming and shooting skills. This makes this mode necessary to constantly improve in this game.
PUBG New State: What’s New?
Most of you might be reading this article after having played PUBG beforehand. You might be thinking, “Is it the same as the OG PUBG game we love and play?” The answer is yes, but with some new exciting twists.
1. The Drone Store
Since PUBG: New State is set in the near future, you will have access to the drone store at all times during the match. You can purchase almost any item available in this game, along with weapon upgrades like scopes and increased magazine sizes. You find drone credits as a lootable item in the game.
2. Flare Revival
If you think reviving teammates by standing near them in a vulnerable state is pretty risky and difficult to do, well, it is. However, since this is the future, you can put your worries to rest with the introduction of the flare gun. Instead of the flare gun calling for dropboxes, it now calls a Revival Drone that revives your teammates and drops them back in action.
Also, you can now do the standard teammate revival faster if more of your squadmates hunch up together.
3. Enemy Recruitment
The newest feature added to this game is the ability to recruit fallen enemies. When enemies get knocked down, you can now recruit them to your team. However, you can only have 4 members in your squad. This makes it impossible to recruit fallen enemies if you give a full squad. Guess a loss from your side is required for a gain.
Troi is the main map for this game, alongside everyone’s favorite Erangel. This map is similar to Erangel, with more greenery instead of denser yellow shrubs. This map has moving trains, similar to what you might have seen before in the PUBG map Vikendi.
Some of the best loot areas on this map are:
- Lab (best for solo players)
- Bay Area
PUBG New State Beginners Tips And Tricks
The best PUBG New State beginner tips and tricks to get the most chicken dinners are:
1. Master Your Armory
There are lots of guns in PUBG New State, ranging from shotguns, SMGs, assault rifles, and even snipers. No matter what your favorite guns are, try to control and master their recoil so as to ensure that you land every shot on enemies.
Also, learn two more advanced tricks:
- Bullet Drop Off: This is the best tip for snipers in PUBG New State. Every bullet drops off in its trajectory after a certain distance. Therefore, if you spot enemies pretty far away, then aim a bit higher so that bullets land on their heads.
- Crosshair Placement: Ever wonder how come players are able to kill you instantly as you peek a corner, especially inside buildings? This is because they have their crosshairs placed exactly where they believe enemy heads will pop up. Learn this track and apply it in close-quarters combat to get easier kills.
2. Coordinate With Teammates
If you play with your friends in duo or squad mode, then staying unified is key. Try to use voice chat and coordinate strategies together. Partake in firefights together to kill most enemies and also survive the exchange of bullets. While you do so, another player can take aim as a sniper while another waits by the car and watches your back.
3. Learn The Battleground
Both Troi and Erangel have various towns and areas. Learn which areas will provide you with the highest tier loot upon landing. Also, try to memorize where all the buildings are and which are the best vantage points on the battleground.
4. Loot Only What You Need
Since you have limited bag space (even with an Lv 3 backpack), it’s pointless to hoard way too many bullets and items. Only take a maximum of 300 bullets for every weapon you have, along with a handful of grenades, medkits, and painkillers. Also, ensure that both your guns have different scopes attached for taking on both short and long-range gunfights.
