10 great Playerunknown's Battlegrounds streamers to watch
Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has quickly risen to the top of the Steam charts and is now sweeping over Twitch and YouTube. The purpose of the game is simple: kill everybody else and win. Battlegrounds is a tense game that is full of drama, anxiety, and rage all balled into one. Anybody can stream themselves playing a game, but a great streamer knows it takes more to be successful.
I spent some time on Twitch watching dozens of players take their swing at earning chicken dinners in solo, duo, and squad matches. I found that there was a wide range of players who all attacked the game differently. Some were all about stealth and tactics, while others made it their goal to jump in a Jeep and attempt to pull off explosive drive-by shootings. With several different ways to play the game, there is a different streamer for everybody. Here are some of our favorites.
Grimmmz is a great streamer to watch if you are looking for high intensity, high kill games. He plays a lot of solo games, and they are always entertaining.
This is the guy that cleaned up five people while picking up a crate drop. He is ridiculous! It often looks like he is using an aimbot, but no, he is just that good.
Going all in with his online persona, Dr. DisRespect is the guy who brings the party to the party. Obviously donning a wig to go along with his ridiculous mighty stache, the Doc is right quality entertainment.
His video quality is crisp, he often engages with his chat, and his stream sessions last 5+ hours so he links up with multiple time zones. Even though the Doc is clearly over the top, you can’t deny his entertainment value.
Viss was one of the first players to be picked up by a professional organization for PUBG, landing with Team SoloMid. Viss has had a presence in the battle royale scene for quite a while, so he definitely knows what he is doing.
If you are looking for high tactic gameplay with a lot of wins, then Viss is your dude. On top of that, he is currently pushing for 365 straight days of streaming!
Kongphan can be seen playing all different modes with his friends, and often plays with Grimmmz. His streaming sessions can last up to 12 hours, and each minute is full of great, fast-paced play. He is also a wizard with the kar98.
Summit is one of the most competitive players on the platform, and that doesn’t change no matter the game. He often gets quiet during gameplay, while softly explaining what his next moves are. If you are new to the game, Summit would be a great starting point.
As a bonus, his chat was the nicest one I encountered throughout my entire week of watching PUBG.
Jack uploads to YouTube frequently, but often can be seen on Twitch too. If you are looking for a wilder stream, then this is the place. He is often playing with his community in the PUBG-Partner exclusive “zombie” mode.
Lirik is one of the most popular streamers on Twitch, and plays a variety of games, but has recently been sticking with PUBG for the majority of his streams. He is often playing with friends that make for great commentary, but he is also highly tactical.
Lirik is mostly the guy that holds the squad together, or the guy who snipes you on the hill.
Ninja is primarily known for his highly competitive Halo play with Luminosity. Recently, just like everybody else, Ninja has caught the PUBG bug. He plays to have fun, so when he dies from a silly reason he doesn’t take it too personally.
He can often be seen playing squads and messing around with his friends. Dr. DisRespect often stops by to play with Ninja as well.
Another member from Team SoloMid, BreaK is another top-tier streamer who is familiar with the battle royale genre. Teaming up with Viss, SmaK, and aimPR makes for a dangerous squad, and a highly competitive one at that.
If you want to see how it is done with stealth, tactics, and luck, then watch the most PUBG competitive team around… as of right now.
Giantwaffle was one of the streamers I stumbled across on a random night, and man was it a great one. Waffle isn't the best player, but he often teams up with popular streamers Lirik and Shorty, so tactics hold the team together. These streams are often filled with laughter from flying motorcycles or Waffle landing on an unrendered roof, so the stream is always a good time.
Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is always one of the most viewed games on Twitch these days. It's currently at five million copies sold, and the game isn’t even fully released, so it's only going to get bigger.
With a lot more going on in development, along with a console release expected in 2018, PUBG is only getting started.
