Chernobyl references

Easter Eggs

Some locations in PUBG were based on real-life locations from Chernobyl, the site of a nuclear disaster in 1986.

  • In the school, you can find a pool based on the Azure Swimming Pool, an indoor pool affected by the incident.
  • The scaffolding at the military base resembles the Duga radar array, which was abandoned after the incident.
  • The dead forest may be a nod to the Red Forest, a forest in which all of the trees died because of the radiation. Much of real-world Red Forest was eventually bulldozed during cleanup efforts, but the area remains dangerous and contaminated.
  • Of course, the power plant has two unfinished towers, much like the actual Chernobyl nuclear plant.
  • You can also find calendars inside buildings that display the year 1986, matching the incident.


Easter Eggs

The main and first map is called Erangel, named for Eryn, the creator’s daughter.

Dacia vehicles

Easter Eggs

The Dacia 1300 vehicle was included as a nod to Top Gear’s running joke about Dacia vehicles.


Easter Eggs

The fire mode selector on the M416 weapon has its settings written as “NO PEW” (safe), “PEW” (semi-auto), and “PEW PEW PEW” (auto).

Motorcycle Decal

Easter Eggs

The motorcycle vehicle (as well as the variant with the sidecar) has a decal on the side that pays tribute to the father of BikeMan, a streamer. BikeMan’s father passed away, and so the tribute was included.

"I hate school."

Easter Eggs

On the Miramar map, near Minas del Sur, you can find a circle of rocks around a traffic cone that has a little sign on it that reads “I hate school.”

Miramar Mini-Map

Easter Eggs

On an island east of Los Leones, you can find a map on a table in one of the buildings. This map shows the unusual names used in the original prototype Miramar map shown by the developers.

El pollo es mio.

Easter Eggs

There is graffiti on a building in Miramar that reads “El pollo es mio.” This is Spanish for “The chicken in mine,” which makes it most likely a reference to the “Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner” phrase you see when you win the game.

Tips and Tricks


Here are some basic tips to help you survive and make it to the end of the game.

  • Try to land in a safe spot. Towns and cities might be tempting, but many players will be landing there. Consider dropping at a more isolated location to find gear and prepare yourself.
  • However, if you want to get some practice in with the combat, it might be worth landing in a populated area to practice even if you don’t survive.
  • Some key items to watch out for are a backpack, a bulletproof vest, a helmet, and healing items, and of course, a weapon you’re confident with.
  • As you move from place to stay in the safe area, look for spots that are easily defendable. You don’t have to stay on the move constantly.
  • On the other hand, don’t stay completely still. A little bit of movement might throw off the aim of any snipers that have spotted you from a distance.
  • If you can find a boat, hiding offshore and taking the boat to safe zones can be a solid strategy.
  • You’ll sprint faster if your weapon is put away.
  • If you’re running from enemies, zig-zag as you run, and try to get out of sight. Many players won’t pursue you once you’re no longer an immediate threat.
  • As long as your vehicle is stopped, you can refuel it from inside rather than getting out of the vehicle.
  • If you see an open door, be careful. There might still be someone inside the building or in the surrounding area. If you enter a building, close the door behind you, both to make your presence less obvious and so you’ll know someone else arrived if you see the door open later.
  • Make sure a building is empty before you start grabbing items.
  • On the flipside, consider leaving items (especially healing items) on the floor as bait while you hide nearby.
  • Avoid bridges. Bridges are extremely dangerous. If you have to cross the water, boats and swimming are usually safer.
