PUBG Player Shows Wisdom in Driving Through Smoke

In PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS, the unknown often equates to the dangerous. Running into a situation with no understanding of how many enemies will greet you, where they're positioned, or any plan for engagement is asking for trouble. But every once in a while, just sending it will get you the goods regardless of the unknowns.

Such is the case with this video, posted to the PUBG subreddit Thursday by u/Matt_NZ. In a late-game circle, Matt_NZ sees a smoke go up on top of a hill in the center of the safe zone. Driving a UAZ as they are, they decide to risk it all and drive straight through the smoke in the hopes of nailing some poor, unsuspecting victim.

The risk is significant. The smoke could obscure a massive rock, or, worse, a spike trap. It could just as easily have nothing within it. That's near enough the best-case scenario.

But today, Matt_NZ is lucky. Barreling toward the smoke and honking their horn, they gun the engine straight through the cloud — and come out the other side with a dead enemy splayed across the hood of the car, chalking up an easy kill for the price of a send. Not too shabby.
