[2020] Best PUBG Map in depth analysis and New features

PUBG has five maps in total, we called PUBG Map here. They are entirely different, with each of them having their unique features. Maps serve as battlegrounds with varying features to make the gameplay more intense and exciting. All of these maps bring a unique flavor to the table.


Erangel is the biggest and the most played map for the game. It is an 8×8 km map pointed with small outcroppings of buildings, huts, and shelters. The considerable distance between major landmarks makes it necessary to use vehicles to get to different locations in time. A red circle will appear on the map from time to time, showing the offshore artillery being bombarded. The players are to seek shelter to save themselves from the bombings.

 Erangel has varying weather, and day /night time matches sometimes affecting visibility and requiring a change in strategy and tactics. Military base and cities like Pochinki have decent loot, and one gets the backpack full there. Erangel is a combination of urban areas and wheat farmlands that create a wide variety of battles and gameplay, ranging from intense close-range firefights in streets and buildings to long-range sniping duels taking place across wheat fields.

PUBG Map Erangel Loot Places

The following three loot areas in the Erangel map are flooded with decent loot. However, one should be extremely careful as these areas are usually swarming with other players during the initial stages of the game.

Sosnovka Military Base – Located on the southern island, the Sosnovka Military Base is one of the best places in the game where you can find consistent loot consisting of armor, weapons, attachments, and healing kits.  

School – The school is located at the center of the Erangel map and is one of the most popular places amongst the players due to its reasonable loot and location. One can easily find guns that include assault rifles, DMRs, and mostly level 2 gear.

Mylta Power – Located in the east, the Mylta Power is a power plant that offers high quantities of supreme loot, including sniper rifle attachments, shotguns, sniper rifles, and level 3 military gear.

Other areas that contain good amounts of loot include the Pochinki, Gerogepol, Prison, and Novorepnoye.

PUBG Map Erangel Exclusive guns:

Erangel has SCAR-L assault rifle, and DP-28 comes close as being exclusive. There are no other exclusive weapons for the map.

PUBG Map Erangel Guide – Start Locations:

Erangel is a vast map, and the ideal location to parachute yourself would be a zone that is far away from the loot areas but still has a high spawn rate of vehicles.


Miramar has more land area than Erangel, despite being similar in size. It has overcast weather and sunset, which players get randomly. The location comprises of barren land area that is mainly deserted desert, which resembles Pablo Escobar’s compound from NARCOS. The gameplay is long with slow and gradual action. It is best for sniping battles. The map is ideal for raising scores by increasing the survival rate. Buildings are the only sources of refuge if one is planning to avoid action for the most part of the game.

Miramar PUBG Map Loot Places:

The following areas in the map are flooded with decent loot. However, one should be extremely careful as these areas are usually swarming with other players during the initial stages of the game.

Prison – The prison is located in the south-west corner of the map. Away from all the action that usually happens at the proximity of the center, this place is safe to land. Nevertheless, the prison on a small island is a wonderful place for players who are looking for loot featuring weapons and armor.

Pecado – The Pecado offers high-quality loot but features stiff competition during the early stages of the game due to its positioning in the center of the map and swarming players. Quite a few players tend to drop towards the center, and one must be on their toes to navigate through the chaos seen while gathering the loot.

Campo Militar – Campo Militar is located in the north-east corner of the map, and one has to do enough traveling to reach this spot if they choose to parachute themselves into the central area of the map. Look for vehicles once you jump onto the island and head towards Campo Militar.

Other loot areas in Miramar include Planta Potabilizadora and Hacienda Del Patron.

Miramar Exclusive Guns:

Win94 sniper rifle is exclusively available on the Miramar map. SCAR-L, Sawed-off, and R45 are the other Miramar weapons that are not freely available across all the three PUBG maps.

 Miramar PUBG Map Guide – Start Locations:

Parachuting yourself onto one of the loot locations is good to stock up in the early stages of the game. However, this could be a risky move as one faces stiff competition with a bunch of players dropping in the same location. Ideally, one could land far off from a popular loot area and quickly move to the area with a vehicle and rush back to the safe zone.


Sanhok is all about green meadows and refreshing pastures. It is pretty beautiful. It has the most significant and precious loot and is the smallest map (4x4km). Sanhok is almost the size of the Military base area in Erangel. If you like camping or hiding in the bushes and then attack, you can go with Sanhok. One can imagine how intense it gets when the players land on to such a small area. This map is the go-to location for offensive gameplay and adrenaline rush. Saying landing in Bootcamp in Sanhok is NEVER safe would not be wrong.

Sanhok PUBG Map Loot Places:

One could find reasonable loot at the following four loot areas in the Sanhok map:

Ruins – The ruins are extensively dotted with loot across multiple floors, making it a hotly-contested area during the initial stages of the game. The place is packed with loot, but one should be heavily loaded before going there.

Bootcamp – This area houses tons of weapons and is an ideal place for people looking to stock up before entering the battle zone during the final stages of the round. The site is known for being unsafe due to heavy player traffic landing onto the camp.

Paradise resort – This beautiful resort is located in the center and has loads of loot. You can land onto the resort in the initial stages of the game and pack up!

Camp Alpha, Bravo, and Charlie – Although not high on loot, it is observed that these three camps are relatively safer and have a high amount of spawn gear.

Other areas of interest include the Docks.

PUBG Map Sanhok Exclusive Guns:

The map brings in a few particular vehicles and weapons, including the QBZ 95 assault rifle and the QBU88 Designated Marksman rifle. 

Sanhok Map Guide – Start Locations:

As Sanhok is quarter the size of the other two maps on PUBG, landing at locations near the edges of the map could help one plan their approach as one does not need to traverse considerable distances to maintain themselves in the safe zone.


Vikendi is a snow-based map that is scouted and set in European locations. It is bigger than Sanhok but smaller in size than Erangel. There is plenty of loot for players in all areas, and the best feature is the way players interact with the snow. The addition of new vehicles also makes it one of the best maps. It is a combination of all three maps and provides a thrilling experience to the players. 

Vikendi PUBG Map Loot Places:

Dino Park – Located in the south-west of the map, this site has a consistent loot and offers safe gameplay.

Cement Factory – a small construction site located in the east. This place has level three gears and decent weaponry. 

Other places with handsome loot are Cosomodrome, Hot Springs, and Port.

Vikendi PUBG Map Exclusive Guns:

Vikendi is the only map that has G36C, an assault rifle.

PUBG NEW MAP – Karakin Map:

Karakin is the latest map released by PUBG Map Corp in the game. The map is a desert map and is the smallest in size. Karakin is quite different from other maps in terms of gameplay. It is very fast-paced, and players with an aggressive approach will find it more comfortable. As of now, the map is only available of PUBG PC but expects it to arrive on the Mobile platform soon.

It is a combination of Miramar and Sanhok, offering exciting gameplay. 

There are six big towns located in the corners of the map, and the entire midsection of the map is filled with small structures. The only six named towns in Karakin are: 

Al Hayik

Hadiqa Nemo


Cargo Ship

Bahr Sahir

Al Habar
