Get Mid-Long Range Weapons From Early-Mid Game
It will difficult to engage enemies with tons of open space, and distance between you. Prioritize getting mid-long range weapons like LMGs and Snipers to be able to engage far away enemies if necessary.
Swap Out To Short-Mid Range Weapons In The Late Game
Since the circle will be small by the late game, it is best to swap out your long range weapons for ones that are effective up close like SMGs and Shotguns. It will help you and your team focus down enemies, as the circle becomes smaller!
Down But Not Out Tips
Split Up Into Two Pairs
It will be difficult to stay very close to your team in this mode. It increases your chances of being wiped. The best way to increase your chances of survival is to split into two pairs so that if one pair is eliminated, the other survives!
Run And Hide If Outnumbered
If you find yourself the lone survivor of the team, it would be best to find a safe space and wait till your teammates respawn. It will be better if you have others watching your back when facing another team!
