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.
