Save the Newbies
We’re pretty sure everyone has had their clumsy PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS “newbie” moments: either by running blindly across an open and vulnerable field with their weapons holstered, or unintentionally sacrificing themselves by holding onto a cooked grenade, or even taking a stroll in the Blue Zone and wondering why they’re suddenly crawling on the ground.
Oh, are you finding yourself relating to these examples? Or do you find yourself a PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS expert and wish to be a good sport and help out?
Then you’ve come to the perfect place. Participate in the Save the Newbies campaign, enjoy PUBG as either a newbie or expert, and take home in-game rewards!
