PUBG Player Wins Match With Kamikaze-like Play
The player and their teammates are waiting for the final opponent to come closer. Already inside the vehicle, a teammate sticks a C4 onto the vehicle. With the opponent insight and 16 seconds left till detonation, the player hits the accelerator.
As the player closes in, the opponent is surprised and frightened. Failing to get out of the way, the player just manages to get within a meter of the the opponent. The C4 explodes as 16 seconds pass causing the vehicle to instantly explode. Detonating the vehicle, the player's teammate earns a kill via vehicular explosion. The squad won the game at the expense of a teammate, but most likely felt it was worth it.
C4 has a lethal damage radius of 15 meters. At closer than one meter, the opponent had a zero survival rate. A comment read "Amazing timing on that" as C4 cannot be detonated early. To perfectly get in range, especially so close, in 16 seconds is amazing tactical awareness.
Since its introduction, vehicles with C4 have become a popular duo in the game. More players are being blown up with vehicles each day. It has been a fun and comedic addition to the game.
