Can I run PUBG?

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is an online multiplayer battle royale game developed and published by PUBG Corporation in 2017.

PUBG has considered one of the most trending esports competitive games as thousands of players play it daily.

If you are a fan of first-person shooter games, you will love this because it is one of the masterpieces. Even though you can also play this game from the third-person perspective, it is your choice in the end.

Can I run PUBG? Minimum System Requirements

PUBG is a GPU plus CPU-intensive game that demands your PC to be good to provide you with a smooth gameplay experience.

Your PC needs to have good specifications to enjoy the game in full HD quality with 60-plus frames.

Requirements for Windows PC

CPUIntel Core i5-4430 / AMD FX-6300
StorageUp to 30 GB
GPUNVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 2GB / AMD Radeon R7 370 2GB
Operating System64-bit Windows 7
DirectX Version11

Compilations with these components will not have problems playing PUBG at 60 frames per second, which provides an exceptionally smooth but inexpensive experience.

Requirements for MAC OS

There are no official PUBG MAC requirements because this game cannot be played on MAC OS.

We do not know the proper reason behind that, and maybe there are not so many players available on this platform.

So they have not considered taking PUBG on MAC yet, but if you are a MAC user and you want to try PUBG, there is something you can do.

You can play the game through any game streaming service. Google Stadia and Geforce Now are currently providing their streaming services.

PUBG Recommended Requirements

Recommended requirements mentioned below are the official recommendations of specs from PUBG Corporation to run your game up to 120 FPS or more at 1080p resolution.

In-game settings offer slimming options to easily adjust the performance to your liking, whether it promotes more FPS or a better visual experience.

CPU Intel Core i5-6600K / AMD Ryzen 5 1600
StorageUp to 30 GB
GPUNVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB / AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB
Operating System64-bit Windows 10 Updated
DirectX Version11
Resolution 1080p (1920×1080)

We recommend the Intel Core i5-6600K / AMD Ryzen 5 1600 or better processor paired with the graphic card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB /AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB or better with at least 8 GB of RAM, which is sufficient, but we’ll say go for 16 GB RAM to enjoy the game at its fullest.

Suppose you have got no idea whether your PC can run PUBG or not. Start by looking at your PC’s components (Processor, GPU, and RAM) and compare them with the minimum and recommended requirements mentioned above, and get to know if you are capable of running the game smoothly or not.

If your PC specs are not suitable as the minimum required specs, consider buying new components to avoid any unexpected issues regarding performance.

PUBG Gameplay

This game is based on battle royale, where a number of people are released onto an island; they land in different areas of the island and gather loot, including weapons and other equipment and then look for enemies to hunt them.

Still, they need to make sure they are in the safe zone.

The safe zone keeps getting smaller and smaller to ensure that no player is camping at the edge of the island.

The last person who manages to survive in all that chaos gets a chicken dinner. (No, do not think you practically get chicken in dinner. It is just symbolic that you have won the game.)

Every game starts with 100 people depending on whether you want to go solo or with your team.

The last man surviving wins the chicken dinner and a few BPs, which can be used to buy in-game items like weapon skins, clothes, and other equipment.

PUBG Twitch Streamers

You can visit these Twitch streamers who stream PUBG daily to learn and improve your gameplay.

The best this is, you can also find their PC gear and Specifications, so maybe in the future, that will help you in building a high-end gaming PC!
