Tips and tricks to survive hot drops in BGMI
The prominent hot drops in Erangel map are Georgopol, Sosnovka Military Base, Pochinki etc.However, hot drops can change based on the path taken by the aeroplane. Following are the methods to survive them:
1. Know when to land
The first and foremost trick is to land on time. There are several players who jump way before their destination and as a result they are defeated early by the players who reached that place earlier. Try to jump when the distance of the drop is about 750-800 metres away from the flight. Swipe your screen downwards and glide the joystick towards the direction of your drop. In this way, you can land faster.
2. Pick up high damage weapons
Landing on a hot drop generally means that you have to engage in close range combats. Hot drops like Pochinki in Erangel or Bootcamp in Sanhok are tightly packed with compartments or houses so you’ve to focus on picking up weapons with high damage. While picking up an AR weapon should be your priority, don’t hesitate while picking up shotguns. Shotguns like S12K render a heavy damage and if you move quickly, shotguns can wipe a whole squad in a close combat.
3. Don’t rush unnecessarily
Even if you find a considerable amount of loot, don’t rush blindly. Know the location of the enemy while shooting from the cover like behind a wall or a window. As several players might be camping in the compartments or houses, they can easily defeat you if you’re running in an open area. If you spot an enemy hiding in the building that’s right in front of you. You can flank and defeat the enemy easily.
4. Remember to pick up throwables
Ask any skilled player and they’ll always advice you to pick up the throwables like frag grenades, molotov cocktail etc. Using them tactfully can prove to be a huge advantage for you. Often it is difficult to defeat a whole squad even if everyone in your team rushes at the same time. These throwables will then act as a lifesaver for you. Hold the grenade for 3 seconds and then throw it towards the enemy’s location. If the grenade knocks out at least 1 enemy, go ahead with your team and defeat the whole squad.
5. Don’t let your guard down
