Ranked mode has finally arrived in the battle royale game PUBG, where a maximum of 64 players can battle against each other in either solo, duo or trio modes. Ranked mode games will be randomly played on Erangel, Miramar, or Sanhok maps.
In addition, there won’t be any bots in PUBG Ranked mode. However, players need to ensure that they’re not ranked too far apart (ten divisions minimum) in order to be in the same queue or squad.

In PUBG Ranked mode, players obtain points based on their kills, assists and personal placement. More RP means a higher Rank, but there are six tiers and five divisions within each of them. At the end of the season, rewards will be given out based on the highest rank the players have reached, regardless of where they ultimately end up.
The recent PUBG 7.2 update also introduces balancing improvements to assault rifles, shotguns and vests, as well as adding more ways to use gas cans, which can now be used to create a flammable trap for enemies. Check out the full patch notes here for the full list of changes.
PUBG Ranked mode will only launch on PS4 and Xbox One on 26 May 2020. In the meantime, check out the trailer below.
