PUBG: Battlegrounds map intel



Bankrupt and ruined by a catastrophic hurricane, Deston was left to rot - what remains are hulking desalination plants, overgrown algae farms, and flooded urban sprawl. However, this does not mean the city is completely empty... now these lands serve a whole different purpose.


The birthplace of the Battlegrounds and a long-time fan favourite map, Erangel is an 8km x 8km island that features a variety of terrain types.

Explore open grasslands, tall mountains and numerous cities as you battle your way across the war-torn landscape. The highly contested Military Base connects to the island via two dangerous bridges with plenty of ambush opportunities that provide both high risk and high reward. Erangel was the home of the first Lone Survivor, but they most certainly will not be the last. 


Once the jewel of the desert, Miramar is now a desolate 8km x 8km expanse of ghost towns and rugged terrain. 

Being a landlocked battleground, Miramar has the largest landmass of any map, giving survivors plenty of opportunity to spread out and loot. While the badlands may be inhospitable to most, their high vantage points and sparse vegetation make Miramar a sniper’s paradise.


A small 4km x 4km island with dense vegetation, Sanhok is a battleground unlike any other. 

Rivers cut the landscape into 3 major sections, while the island’s many hills offer vantage points and cover alike. With so much loot and so many survivors in close proximity, Sanhok is easily one of the most hectic and fast paced battlegrounds out there.


From rustic community to tourist attraction to deadly battleground, Vikendi has seen many changes in its day. 

A colder climate gives this 6km x 6km island a unique feel with frozen lakes, evergreens and patches of snow that allow you to track other survivors via their footprints. Whether you’re dropping into Dino Land or the slopes of Mount Kreznic, Vikendi has a variety of destinations for your looting and shooting pleasure.


At 2km x 2km, the island of Karakin may seem small, but it packs a wide variety of unique features for its 64-survivor capacity. 

Breach weak walls with sticky bombs or the powerful Panzerfaust but beware when the Black Zone comes to completely level the building you’re looting. With such little space and a decreasing number of buildings to hide in, Karakin holds its own as one of the most wild and fast-paced battlegrounds.


Cradled among the clouds are the highlands of Paramo, a 3km x 3km battleground with hidden secrets that date back to ancient times. 

With lava streams from its active volcano carving through the landscape and terrain that changes with each new match, Paramo is certain to provide a challenge to even the most seasoned survivor.


Don’t let the name fool you, this dense urban 1km x 1km battleground is anything but safe. 

Take to the rooftops and alleyways of this small, industrial town as you battle the NPC faction “Pillar” for loot to take down other survivors and claim victory. 

But watch out - getting caught in one of Pillar’s search lights is a quick way to end your Chicken Dinner dreams.


Set in the 1980’s, the 8x8 area of Taego provides a glimpse into the origins of the Battlegrounds. 

Battle your way across varied landscapes, through reed fields and into the heart of Hosan Prison as you fight for survival. But defeat is not necessarily the end on Taego. Unique features such as the Self AED to revive yourself and the Comeback BR system give you a second chance at victory in the ultimate life and death fight.
