OR you can drop into one of the larger town areas and be guaranteed a bunch of others will - then its a mad rush to get weapons and kill those others who'll be doing the same.
OR you can drop into a slightly out of the way group of houses, loot up then go searching for other players. This is what i most commonly do.
OR you can linger near the edge of the circle and stay around it as it moves in as you know there'll be a lot of people doing the same. It can be satisying picking them off as they come in.
OR you can find a house/area that's in a logical place where people will move through (ie pass by on the way to the circle) - shut up all the doors so it looks unlooted then wait for someone to come loot it. For you can be sure someone will, and you'll hear them, and have the satisfaction of scaring the bejesus out of them as they have nfi you're waiting in ambush.
Basically when i play, i do a combination of the above. Hiding and waiting is boring as shit, but hunting other players is satisfying. You just need to learn to be patient and get them when you can guarantee kill them, knowing that when you catch them unexpected from a medium range, they'll have nfi where you are - it's quite difficult to pinpoint where you're beign shot from.
One thing this game does superbly is the gunshot sounds at distance. You can get a really good idea of direction and distance from the sounds of the gunshots, i usually move towards them knowing that if you hear them, there's guaranteed at least one of the two people alive in that direction. Then it's just a case of sneaking up using cover to go kill them.
It's definitely not a game for everyone, but you'll find the amount of action varies from round to round. It's particularly satisfying killing other players i find but it requires forethought, something that goes against my usual running and gunning style of play.
Few random crashes. Poorly optimized (shitty FPS). Random glitches.
But its a bloody fun game.
I'm still shit at it. Best round so far I got three kills, and top eight. Otherwise its a lot of getting pinged from long range or dying really quickly at the start.
First few games Id land in wilderness and find a small shack, load up and slowly make my way. Now I tend to aim for the cities, load up and try clear out. Given my best kill streak has been three, clearly its not working fantastic but I'm getting there.
I dont play this as often as i'd like as i find it to be stressful. Playing solo is great, but jesus it gets intense in those latter stages. It's amazing how it can impact you that sneaky/careful phase when only the best players are left and you dont know where the fuckers are - or worse, you know where the fuckers are but there's another fucker on the other side of you that you need to deal with somehow.
Usually if someone dies straight away we will throw caution to the wind and try and get revenge. Its very rare that you'd have to sit out a full round.
