Our PUBG Replay guide contains a list of all the replay controls, including how to fast forward and find the replay folder they are saved in.

Jumping into PUBG’s replay system without any prior knowledge is easily one of the most frustrating, confusing things you’ll experience in the game. It’s pretty difficult to figure out which keys correspond to certain functions, especially when you’re trying to simultaneously capture an incredible moment that shows off just how incredible you are.

There’s a whole host of controls which aren’t explained in-game and that’s where this guide comes in. We’ve put together a complete list of all the keybinds and controls for the replay system, and on top of this we’ve also got information on where PUBG replays are actually saved on your PC.

Without further ado, here’s how PUBG’s replay system works and all the controls to go with it...

Make sure you visit our core PUBG Guide hub when you're done here. It contains all of the most important tips and tactics you need to win more games!

Replay System: Controls List

To access replays of all your previous PUBG matches, head over to the “Replays” tab on the main lobby screen once you boot up the game. It’ll take around 3 minutes or more for a match to appear, so don’t worry if it doesn’t show up right away.

There’s no skimping when it comes to content here, as every replay contains a recording of a whole match and you can even see everyone elses perspectives too!

Here’s a list of all PUBG’s replay controls to get you up and running:

Replay system: Save Folder Location

You can access all of your replays in-game via the tab in the main menu. If you’re looking for their specific location within your system, then it’s a bit fussier.

Here’s where to find your PUBG replay folder based on Trroggdorr The Burninator’s really helpful video.

  • Bring up your File Explorer.
  • In the quick search bar, type in %localappdata% and click enter.
  • Scroll down until you see “TslGame” and select it.
  • Click on “Saved”, followed by “Demos”.
  • You’ll see all your replays here.
  • Right click on whatever replay you want (it’s best to search by “date modified”) and paste it onto your desktop.
  • You can rename them without any issues.
