PUBG's long-awaited and very renewed training mode finally arrived, giving players the chance to improve their skills in an environment more secure . The training mode was officially released for the PUBG test servers last week and we ran many runs through the new map to see all that players can do in training mode. Since you have so many versions of PUBG, with similar features and game elements, the training mode will prepare you for the PC version, but not for PUBG Mobile or PUBG Mobile Lite as the controls obviously differ.
If you haven't had the chance to get on the test servers to try the new training mode on PC (you will soon arrive on a live server), you've come to the right place. Here is a quick overview of the new map, highlighting all the things you can do in a 30 minute time frame.

PUBG training mode: all you can do
If it is true that a training mode like this attracts players who just try to have fun and try stupid jokes they can't afford to play in a game, if you are determined enough you can really improve your gameplay by spending some time on the training map . Here are all the areas where you can practice different game skills:
Shooting range (400m)
Starting with perhaps the most important area of the new map, the target shooting from 400 meters. At the start of the game, you'll find yourself near an equipment table where you can gear up and try out all the types of weapons and attachments you can find in the game.
All cannons, ammunition and equipment are neatly arranged on the tables and you can collect whatever you want to use, from SMG to sniper rifles. You can equip your equipment with any accessory you need and head to the nearby shooting range to practice shooting from different distances.
The 400 meter range is the most important because you often find yourself fighting in that area and you have to be really good if you want to take that chicken dinner. In case you run out of ammunition, you won't have to go back to the equipment tables to get more since there is a lot of ammunition that you can collect directly from the shooting range. The range also has guns and bindings placed directly forward, so you can also switch to a different gun without wasting time.
Shooting range (800m)
Next is the 800-meter range in which you can practice shooting long-range targets. As with the 400-meter range, the 800-meter range also has a variety of targets at different distances that you can shoot at.
Once again, the 800 meter range also has a selection of weapons and ammunition placed in the front, so it is not necessary to return to the equipment tables once you arrive. If you have practiced enough and 800 meters do not represent a real challenge, the range also has a special target of 1500 meters on which you can practice.
Shooting range (pistols and shotguns)
Compared to the other two shooting ranges, the range of pistols and guns is rather small. It also has guns and ammunition placed right in the front so you can try a variety of weapons while you're at it.
The targets placed in the pistol and in the range of shotguns are relatively close and aim to recreate what the players might find in games at the beginning, where you have to do well with whatever weapon you find as soon as you land.
Range of tokens
The training mode map also has an area where you can practice throwing grenades and Molotov cocktails. The range has a variety of structures and you can train with precision to throw grenades over short and long distances, through windows and tight spaces.
Practicing on the pitch can really be useful for beginners who are not used to throwing grenades precisely. You should definitely try it, and who knows you could win your next chicken dinner because of a well organized flashbang.
The Training mode map also has a melee combat range that allows players to practice combat using melee weapons. While practicing melee weapons might seem like a waste of time, it could be really useful at the beginning of the game when you are in a bad mood and can't find a gun.
I had a problem with the melee range for. Unlike all other practice ranges, it has no area in the vicinity where it is possible to collect melee weapons to hone the tilting skills. You will have to go back to the equipment tables to get your melee weapons. As you can already see, I didn't worry.
Parachute practice area
Another great skill that you can practice parachuting on the new training mode. Even though it may not seem that way, skydiving is also a crucial part that can give you a significant advantage at the start of the game.
To practice parachuting, all you need to do is jump into a jump school bunker and interact with the console inside. The map has a number of targets in various locations that you can practice landing to improve your skills.
Close Quarter Combat (CQC) Area
Probably the most underused area of the map is the Close Quarter Combat (CQC) area. As the name suggests, the area designed to practice fights with your opponents in an urban environment up close.
However, in all the games I played, I could not find a single person who was willing to practice close combat and the area was virtually deserted. So, if you want to practice close combat in PUBG, you'll have to queue up for training with a group of friends. Unfortunately, I have no reason why you can see me running and shooting aimlessly. T_T
While you can practice all your jumping and jumping skills in the close combat area, the new training mode has a designated area for it. The parkour area has a variety of different obstacle courses that allow you to practice jumping and jumping, which can be crucial when you're under attack in the game.
I had a lot of fun running on short courses and even though I wasn't good at it, I had a clear idea of when and how to jump to complete courses quickly. This could really help you fight in urban areas where there are structures you can climb on.
Garage, race track and off-road vehicle
To help you improve your driving skills in the game, the training mode also has a garage, a running track and an off-road area. The garage near the 400-meter range houses UAZ and the mini-van, while the one near the racing track has a buggy, a muscle car and motorcycles.
The map strewn with scooters everywhere, so you can move from one place to another very quickly – and even practice for Sanhok games – and the damage to the vehicle has been deactivated so you drive without worrying about someone blowing up your vehicle .
Sweet Stunt Ramps
If at any time you get tired of training, you can take a vehicle and have fun on the numerous acrobatic ramps scattered around the circuit. There are several simple jumps and a crazy loop that I couldn't complete on two wheels, no matter how many times I tried.
While the ramps don't really train you for everything you might encounter during the game, they certainly give you the opportunity to try making crazy games with a vehicle and a steep slope. I'm sure you've seen some videos on YouTube and you know exactly what I'm talking about.
Open Water for Vehicles
Finally, the training mode map also has a port where you can practice driving PUBG's water transport. You can also drive the notoriously unstable boats through an obstacle course while on board.
I usually try to avoid waterways in the game, so I didn't spend too much time driving boats, but I'm pretty sure that learning to shoot from a moving boat can be useful in the game.
Well, it completes everything you can do in the new PUBG training mode. Are you excited to get into action and improve your skills to get closer to that chicken dinner? What do you plan to practice first when the training mode is implemented on a live server? Let us know in the comments section below.
