To prepare you for launch day as much as possible, we have put together a brief overview on how to navigate the in-game lobby and going over each of the main lobby menu options.
There are four different queues to choose from, depending on your preference and playstyle:
- 1-man Squad (playing alone in a match against squads of 3 or 4)
In all of these queues, you can also choose between Third Person Perspective (TPP) and First Person Perspective (FPP).
To jump into a match, hit Play.
There is also a Training Mode where you can practice all aspects of PUBG. This is a great option for those of you jumping into the game for the first time or to warm up before you start your matches for the day.
In the Customization menu, you can customize a wide range of looks from head to toe. Choose your gender, face, hairstyle, and makeup. Here, you can also preview the skins you have in your inventory of each clothing item, gun, parachute, and helmet.
In the upper right corner of the lobby screen, you can see the amount of BP you have accrued. BP is earned by playing the game and can be used to purchase a variety of items in the in-game Store.
There are also Crates available for purchase with BP, which contain an assortment of cosmetic skins depending on the type of crate.
G-Coin, PUBG’s premium currency, is purchased with real money and can be used to directly buy cosmetics such as skin sets and parachute skins, plus other miscellaneous items like event passes.
In Career, you can view your match and combat statistics for Solo, Duo, and Squad games as well as each perspective.
Leaderboards show you where you stand amongst the competition, sorted by Rating, Win Rating, and Kill Rating.
Then of course you have Settings, where you can set your preferences for Controls, Gameplay, Audio, and Graphics.
