We’ve already talked about what you should keep in mind while playing PUBG in a squad and what things are important to remember when playing solo, but we haven’t talked about Duos yet. Simply put, Duos is like a less complex version of squads, where instead of four people in a squad, you have groups of two. But you still need to communicate effectively, though it’ll be a little easier because you’re only communicating with one person.
So, today we’ll be giving you some tips and tricks using which you can ensure your two-member team becomes unbeatable, and get that chicken dinner every time.
Landing – Stay Together
The first rule of playing as duos, just like with squads, is always land together. A lot of beginners make this mistake, they end up going separately from their team members and immediately end up getting killed by an enemy team. Make sure you don’t make the same mistake and plan out with your team in advance where you want to land.
The moment you land, start looking for a good weapon. And always be on the lookout for more, not just for yourself but for your team, giving them any extra weapons you might find. This will make sure you’re ready for the fight right from the beginning.
Keep an eye on how many people are landing close to your decided spot, and keep alerting your teammate of their potential whereabouts so they’re always aware and ready.
Looting and Weapons
When looting for weapons in the beginning, try to spread out so you can cover more ground. Instead of everyone going together into one building, each of the two of you can go into a different one to maximize potential loot. But don’t venture away too far, and keep communicating your position to your partner so they can help you out in case you need it.
Another thing you should keep in mind while looting items; always be mindful of your team’s equipment and choose accordingly. This way, you can help your partner with attachments and they can do the same. For instance, if you pick up a sniper rifle, your team mate can give you a good scope if they find one, and you can help them find items for their build. It’s always important to coordinate with your partner and keep sharing items amongst yourselves.
Fighting the Enemy
The moment you see an enemy, alert your partner of their position. A lot of times, someone will start firing by themselves because they want to get a kill, but end up getting their own team killed instead. So don’t be greedy, and remember you’re part of a team.
Don’t walk alone into a fight, and always cover each other. Getting kills is faster when more people shoot an enemy and put some pressure on the opposing team as well.
Additionally, when entering combat, be mindful of your enemies’ positions, coordinate with your team and try to flank them. This will help you dominate the battlefield easily.
Remember that there’s strength in numbers, so make sure you’re ready to revive your fallen teammate, but don’t rush into it if you have enemies firing at you. And always look for cover while healing so enemies can’t ambush you by surprise.
Try to make sure both of you make it to the final circle, it’ll really boost your chances of winning that chicken dinner. Always remember you’re playing in a team, and you two will be an unstoppable juggernaut.
