PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Blue Zone just became Deadlier
Bluehole announced last week that changes would be made to the blue zone in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, and now those changes are live.

PUBG explains the changes on Twitter and in a post on the game’s Steam page. Players have always suffered damage over time (DOT) while staying within the blue zone. With the update, the DOT increases the farther away from the play zone players get. This change does not apply to the first blue zone.

For those unfamiliar, part of the mechanics of PUBG involve an incrementally decreasing play area, forcing more and more firefights as the round progresses. Some players, however, have been using the blue zone to avoid combat until the closing moments, using recovery items to last. This strategy won the Gamescom Invitational for Evermore.
