PUBG Armor and Backpacks
Another set of important information to know is the difference between the sets of armor and backpacks found in PUBG. The level 1 helmet, also known as the Motorcycle Helmet, has 80 armor and a 30% damage reduction. This is the most commonly found helmet in PUBG. Next is the level 2 helmet, or Military Helmet. It has 150 armor and reduces damage by 40%. Finally, there is the level 3 helmet, which has 230 armor and a 55% damage reduction.

Backpack is also an indispensable item, with level 2 backpack will give you 220 capacity , level 3 backpack will be 250+, it’s also worth considering.
There are four types of grenades in the game – Frag Grenades, Molotov Cocktails, Smoke Grenades and Stun Grenades. Below, you can look up the effects caused by all of the above:
Frag Grenade: if it doesn’t kill, it leaves the victim severely wounded.
Molotov Cocktail: Sets enemies on fire, dealing DPS (Damage Per Second).
Smoke Grenade: Generates thick smoke screen, which can obstruct the vision of your enemies or conceal your own movement.
Stun Grenade: A player that’s been hit won’t see and hear anything for a few seconds. The effects of this grenade are not mitigated with environmental obstacles.
