The immensely popular "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" has taken Xbox and PS4 by storm. The game pits 100 players in a last man standing battle that rages across a vast island.

Making it to the final 10 requires some serious skill and planning. However, if done right it can be a lot easier than many frustrated players think.

Follow a few of these tips and tricks and watch your top 10 percentage rise higher and higher.

Location, location, location

A huge impact on how far you will go is made by your very first decision in the game, where to airdrop.

The game begins with all players jumping from a plane, with most players parachuting down to populated cities to begin searching for weapons and ammo. While many players will flock to the larger towns like Pochinki and Georgopol, you will want to avoid as much human interaction as possible.

The main reason for this is you don't have any weapons. So if you run into another player, hand to hand combat is your only choice. This is a risky proposition as even if you kill the other guy, you will likely end up near death yourself. You will also waste a considerate amount of time that other players are taking up arms that you could have had.

Instead, try to land somewhere where there are a few buildings so you might find weapons, but as far away from other players as possible.

Use this time to find everything you need and get ready for the real battle.

Where to go in the circle?

Once the circle begins to close, you will get an idea of where it will close next. If you find yourself right in the middle of the circle, there is a good chance that the next shrinkage will also have you still in the circle.

This is a great time to find a good hiding spot within a building and camp it out.

Yes, it is a boring life but you put in the work to get to that spot so you should exploit it. Listen for other players who come to your house to loot and you will likely get an easy kill, or two, out of it as well. The main idea here is if it ain't broke don't fix it.

So if the circle continues to shrink with you inside, then you are right where you wanted to be.

If there is water in the circle, you may even be able to take a boat out and hang in the water while the numbers dwindle down.

Kill em all and let God sort em out

The name of the game is to be the last one standing. Getting 15 kills is nice, but not if you don't get the one you need. Rather, as the circle shrinks, find a good spot just inside to keep a watch on the final remaining players. Having the play zone to your back allows you to not worry that someone is sneaking up on you and makes it easy to keep everything in front of you.

It is also wise to allow other players to engage each other as you do this.

Getting a quick kill is nice, but it can give your position away to other remaining players.

Keep these tips in mind as you learn when the time to strike is versus laying in wait. If you follow the simple rules of stocking up, staying out of sight and camping when necessary then you will guarantee yourself more shots at that elusive chicken dinner.
