What will happen if you jump into a Hot Drop area in PUBG game? Do you want to know what you should do to survive in that area? This PUBG guide covers all the survival tips for you when you enter a certain Hot Drop place in the game and have no ideas on what to do there.
What is the Hot Drop in PUBG game?
Hot Drop is a term that is very familiar to gamers when it comes to battle royale games. Hot Drop is used to describing a hot location with plenty of items. Most of the hot drops are constructions, buildings, big cities, or central locations on the map. PUBG Hot Drops are usually known as schools, Pochinki (Erangel) and Pecardo, Hacienda del Patrón (Miramar).
Unlike professional players that often choose the hot drop areas to sharpen their skills, the newbies will find it very hard to live if they accidentally land in these hot drop areas. As they manage to find the direction to run away or a certain weapon, maybe they will get shot by the pros. So, what should you do for your survival when you accidentally step into a hot drop area? Below here are the things you must do if you want to survive!
Survival tips when you are in Hot Drop areas in PUBG
Parachute onto the ground as fast as possible
Parachuting fast will be the first thing you must do if you pick Hot Drop as a jumping point. Try your best to land as fast as possible and the best place you should pick is the high buildings because you will land down with your parachute faster on those buildings, and normally, on the roofs, you will find a gun or at least limit the shooting range of other players. One thing you must note is that you should jump off the airplane when you are away from the destination around 1.2 to 1.3 km and the best distance from the parachute to the jumping point should be around 150m. Always remember that the faster you land, the better chance you will have for looting weapons sooner than others and using them to protect yourself.
Picking up weapons
You will find it hard to find good weapons when you first land on the ground, however, if you find some weak weapons, you can still have an edge over your opponents if you know how to pick and use them smartly. For instance, between an SMG and an AR, you should choose the SMG because it has a much shorter time interval between the two shots than the AR. It will permit you to fire first and know down your enemies before they can shoot you. Shotgun is also not a bad choice but it has a low rate of fire, hence, you should shoot and hide alternately to limit a chance of getting shot.
For sniper rifles, it will be great for a mid and late game but it will not be useful much if you use it for the early game, especially in the Hot Drop area with lots of people and melee matches. In case it’s too hard for you to find a gun, you should think about using a pan, a crowbar, a sickle or even bare hands to keep you surviving before you can find the right weapon.
Picking a hiding position and moving smartly
You should pick a high place for yourself so you can observe as well as shoot down a certain enemy. Landing in hot drop areas regularly also helps you find the dead corners or even the movement tactics of other players. From there, you will know which place is suitable to hide and camp the enemies conveniently. However, you should not use the cover many times because someone may spot you.
Smart and flexible movement also keeps you safe! You are advised to imagine and speculate where the enemy can emerge from, and from there, you will be less surprised and will react faster. Make sure you pay attention to some clues and static movements around, such as footsteps, bullets, or a car parked right next to a house with a closed door. It is most likely that a certain enemy is stalking you there.
Your flexibility in combat
To conquer battle royale games, especially PUBG, you need to be the most flexible you can in terms of fighting, especially when you are in places that have lots of confrontations, such as Hot Drop. Don’t be afraid to ambush foes because it may surprise them and they cannot respond to your attacks. However, you should know when to hide and when to rush into combat and make sure you will not rush out during a conflict because you can become a new target for other players or you may get in sight of a certain sniper. Just wait for everything to be quiet, watch closely and leave before another battle comes.
Keep your spirits up throughout the game
When jumping into a hot drop area, besides trying to hone your skills, you should also keep your mind calm. Worrying or even reloading a new game will not help you get better with it. Maybe you will become confused when hearing the rushing footsteps, the sound of guns, and the sound of grenades exploding, but this is just a game. You should keep your head calm to deal with sudden situations that may occur. When you stay calm, you will gradually get through the dangers and challenges around you. From there, you will become more professional and you will find it easy when landing into a Hot Drop area.
That’s all for the useful tips for you to survive when landing into Hot Drop areas in PUBG game. Now, you have known what to do when you are there. Hopefully, these survival tips will help you get through tough battles against enemies and give you a higher chance of winning. Don’t forget to check out more other PUBG Survival Guides for more tips!
