Our PUBG BP guide contains the best ways to earn Battle Points quickly, so you can open more crates and get more cosmetics.
Dropping into a map filled with players hungry for blood is part and parcel of PUBG. Whether you manage to survive the ensuing chaos or fall victim to the swing of a Pan, you’ll be rewarded with Battle Points (BP).
Players will always earn BP for playing matches and they are used to purchase crates which contain a variety of cosmetic rewards. If you want a snazzy new t-shirt, a well-fitted shirt or a rare hoodie, then you’ll need to earn BP to be in with a chance.
There are currently three criteria to fulfil when earning BP in PUBG, and they all correspond to how well you perform in game. Die early without really accomplishing anything? Then you’ll earn far less than someone who’s eliminated a number of opponents before bagging a Chicken Dinner.
Below we’ve put together a simple guide which’ll help you earn more BP per match so you can get spend them on those cosmetic-filled crates.

If you’re looking to earn BP fast, your best bet is to chase kills rather than trying to survive for as long as possible. Hiding away may net you decent BP per match, but it can take forever. Constantly dropping into hotly contested areas and fighting other players will cost you less time and more often than not, it’ll prove to be more lucrative.
You’ll want to drop in populated cities or areas which many players usually congregate, like School or Hacienda Del Patron. If you manage to survive after eliminating a number of players, try and at least survive for as long as possible. Otherwise, hop straight back into matchmaking and repeat the process!
It’s worth mentioning that this hyper-aggressive strategy not only earns you more BP, but it’s a great way of actually improving at the game. Constantly seeking out gunfights will tighten your aim, heighten your game-sense and gradually increase your confidence when duelling enemies.
