How do you parachute better in PUBG?

Answered by Edward Huber

To parachute more effectively in PUBG, there are a few tips and techniques that can help you travel a longer distance laterally. I’ll guide you through the process step by step.

1. Jump Timing: The first key to a successful parachute jump is the timing of your jump from the plane. You want to aim for a spot that is far away from the plane’s flight path, as this will give you more distance to cover laterally. Keep an eye on the map and plan your jump accordingly.

2. Look Up and Hold Forward: As soon as you jump out of the plane, tilt your camera upwards and hold the forward key (W) on your keyboard. This will help you gain maximum horizontal distance during the initial freefall stage.

3. Deploying Your Parachute: Once you’re close to your desired landing spot, it’s time to deploy your parachute. As soon as you see the prompt to do so, press the parachute key (default is F) to open your parachute. Timing is crucial here, so try to deploy it as early as possible without sacrificing too much horizontal distance.

4. Parachute Tilt: Once you’re parachuting, holding the forward key (W) will make your character tilt forward, allowing you to cover more ground. It’s important to hold this key until you reach the maximum tilt position of your parachute. This will help you maintain a high horizontal speed.

5. Release Forward Key: After reaching the maximum tilt position, release the forward key (W) to return your parachute to its default position. Holding the forward key beyond this point will slow down your horizontal movement. It’s important to find the right balance between speed and control.

6. Glide Efficiently: To maximize your lateral distance while parachuting, make sure to glide efficiently. Avoid unnecessary turns or spins, as they can slow you down. Instead, focus on maintaining a steady glide path towards your intended landing spot.

7. Utilize Terrain: Take advantage of the terrain below you to optimize your parachute travel. If you spot hills, slopes, or buildings in your path, try to glide over them to gain extra speed and distance.

8. Adjust Your Landing: Lastly, as you approach your landing spot, make small adjustments to your glide path to ensure a smooth landing. This will help you avoid obstacles and increase your chances of finding better loot and positioning.

By following these tips and techniques, you can significantly improve your parachute travel distance in PUBG. Remember to practice and experiment with different strategies to find what works best for you. Good luck and happy parachuting!
