Winning SQUAD as a SOLO player:
- If you’re in a squad, you need enough loot for 3-4 people. This means
you are going to have to jump towards a high loot area or risk being
undergeared by the time you engage someone. As a solo player, you can
take advantage of this knowing that some of the smaller villages will
be relatively unpopulated at the beginning of the game.
- Which brings me to my second point — as the game goes on, people will
die and the average size of each squad will be reduced. If you can
avoid fighting other players until there are 25-50 other players left
alive, you will greatly reduce the odds of a 1v4, although it’s still
a possibility. During a top 10 situation, it’s more likely you will
be fighting against teams of 1-2 players, but the possibility of a
squad making the top 10 intact does exist.
- It’s not always possible to avoid a fight. If you do have to fight,
there are a few strategies you can employ. First, if you have the
advantage of surprise, your initial attack could take out 1-2 members
of their team and even the odds for you. This isn’t always the case
- When possible, try to find an area with a bottleneck. The stairwells
inside the 3 floor building in the military crater area are pretty
good for this — provided you know nobody is above you in the building,
you can 3rd person from around the corner and wait for the enemy to
try and push you. There are other buildings with choke points like
this too. The bottom line is – you are much safer with your back to
a wall, but watch out for grenades. Some buildings do have bars on
the windows to prevent this — try to use those rooms with the barred
windows if you are holed up in a house versus a squad.
- If you are caught out in the open, you may be screwed. If you have
solid cover, such as a rock, you do have a chance. Just 3rd person
the rock and wait for them to try to flank your 3 ‘o’ clock or 9 ‘o’
clock and pick them off as they do so. Make sure to vary your shooting
position each time you pop out, i.e. first pop out to the left, then
pop out to the right.
- Finally, if you are fighting them in a city — one option is to shoot,
then fall back to a different cover. Your enemies will typically
approach you at different speeds due to their original distance.
When you run, fight, and run like that, you can effectively make it
a 1v1 fight several times instead of a 1v4.
Tips and Tricks:
After clicking that lovely PLAY button in the menu, you get into the lobby,
where you have pretty much nothing to do except testing the weapons that
are available to use, on the tables near the ocean. Test the weapons, their
different firing modes, try to aim for the head of the innocent and
defenseless players around you!
2.In the plane
I suggest you to mute the voice chat in the plane, not to hear all these
pigs being slaughtered, screaming to death. Once it is done, you can open
your map by pressing “M” (very original, right?) and try to find a good
location to drop on. The plane is going straight so you can predict where
it is gonna fly over.
Once you’ve found a lovely place to drop on, QUICKLY PRESS “F“!
Okay, you’re falling now. I hope you haven’t forgotten to take your
parachute?! Haha, just kidding. The parachute is automatically on your
beautiful back once you get in the plane. To fall the faster as possible,
you have to aim the lower as possible underneath you, and keep pressing
“W“. Don’t stop till your parachute automatically opens. Once your
parachute is open, press “W” and “D” to reach the maximum speed and land
on the place you located before.
You managed to land on the ground and not on a roof or at the top of a
tree? Great. Now you will try to find some stuff in the nearest house.
Take everything useful you can find : weapons, ammunitions, helmet,
armor, bandages, boosts, modifications and if you want to be stealthier;
clothes. (Helmets, armors and bags have 3 levels. Each superior one
grants better protection/ more space in your inventory for the bag.)
HOWEVER, take care of the noises around you, because someone maybe had
the same idea as you, and can be near you! If you spot someone, kill
him with the weapons you found. Don’t try to be friendly with him…
There can only be one at the end.
Fine. You managed to get some stuff by looting. Now you have to focus
on one thing : SURVIVING. To achieve this, I suggest you to stay very
quiet and hidden as much as you can. I don’t mean camping in a house the
whole game. I mean using environment to stay invisible to other players.
Trees, tall grass, hills and holes… Your clothes can help you with this,
by providing you a camouflage.
However, take care to the Blue zone (you can see where it is on your map.
“M“, remember?). This zone will hurt you as long as you are in it. So stay
in the White zone (again, you can see it on your map by press… Ok, I think
you got it.). If you get hurt, you can use bandages or first-aid kits to
heal yourself to 75% of your health maximum. Afterwards you’ll need a
boost (energy drinks, painkillers or syringes.). To escape from the Blue
zone, you can use a vehicle.
Be careful using vehicles, because they are very loud and will make you
spotted by the other players around you when you drive. Try not to use them
when the end of the game is near (when the White zone becomes small enough).
Fine! You know all the basics. Good luck, soldier.
Figuring out the distance between the player and the enemy:
In order to figure out the distance between the player and enemy, you will
need to make use of your map. I like to use buildings to figure out their
exact location if need be. To find the distance, you will want to count the
number of white squares between yourself and the enemy.
Each square is equal to 100m.
Setting zeroing distance and landing the kill:
After you've counted your squares, you will want to set your zeroing distance
to that number. For example, 3 white squares away would be 300m so you would
set the zeroing distance to 300m. After you've set the distance, you will want
to shoot just a tiny bit above their head as there will still be a little bit
of bullet drop but a lot less than normal. It should not take long to get used
Note: You will still need to aim infront of the enemy if he is moving as it
only reduces the bullet drop.
