at the beginning of matches. Nothing will ruin your match scores more than early exits in the first two or three minutes of matches. Even if you manage to get a kill or two early on, you’ll probably still lose points if you don’t last longer than three minutes. In the worst cases, you might get shot down before you can pick up guns!
Named locations that are close to the flight path are the most dangerous landing spots to drop in at. You’ll more likely get caught up in early dogfight when you land at big locations, which include lots of loot to grab, along the flight path. So, always try to jump further away from the flight path toward smaller named locations and unnamed building blocs. If you see some players parachuting toward the same location, be prepared to change your drop direction toward a different landing spot.
