Player Unknown’s Battleground takes a lot more than just luck to win, and knowing what kind of damage your weapons can deal could be the difference between winning or losing a gun fight. Now, thanks to the hard work of the community, a complete damage chart has been created, which will show you how many bullets each weapon currently in the game will have to hit a player with in order to kill them. In this article we’ll explain the PUBG damage chart, show you how to access it, and go over it in detail.
PUBG – All Weapons Damage Chart
Now, this weapons damage chart is currently up to date as of Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds patch 126.96.36.199. Based on the input we’ve seen coming at it from the community, we can only assume that Reddit user Esk1mOz4mb1k will try to keep the information as up to date as they possibly can, but since it is a community resource, we’ll be keeping our eyes out to make sure we keep any links in our article up to date as well.
This isn’t just a weekend project, either, as the author of the chart has taken the time to sort out the vest level, as well as the helmet level, and the bullets that you’ll need to fire and hit in order to take the player out. For example, when looking at the chart—which we’ve linked below—you’ll see that the AKM has a base damage of 48, and that when dealing damage to the a player’s body who has no armor vest on, you’ll need to hit them three times in the body to take them down.
Now, this number of bullets to kill increases dramatically as you up the level of the armored vest, and players wearing a level 3 vest will take roughly five bullets to kill. Alternatively, you can also look at the chart and see that a level 3 helmet can sustain up to two shots from an AKM before the player you are shooting becomes downed or killed.
How to Use the Chart
Now that you know more about the chart, and the information contained within it, let’s talk about how you can use it to prepare yourself for the battles that you’ll take part in within PUBG.
The community chart that we’ve linked in this article is broken down into three main sections, Raw Stats, Body Shots Damage, and Head Shots Damage. From here each weapon is listed, and each section is broken down even more to include the amount of damage, as well as the bullets required to kill someone depending on where you shoot them, and what level armor they have on.
It's actually a very easy to use damage chart, and we’d suggest heading over to the original Reddit thread to pass on your appreciation for it.
