Pio is a south Korean PUBG pc player who is also the IGL (in-game leader) for Gen-G. I believe he is, without a doubt, one of, if not the top-tier PUBG player in the world. Pio is literally the driving force behind the competitive team, Gen-G’s success. He is a flexible Rifler and, on top of being a Lurker.

The main factor that makes me like him is his unparalleled map awareness and positioning. Pio not only won the 2019 pubg global championship but pio also represented South Korea at the 2019 nations cup; he was instrumental in gen-g’s late rally at PGLS 2021.


James TGLTN Giezen, more commonly known as TGLTN, is an out and out God at PUBG Pc. He is easily one of the best players to ever have played PUBG. He is the best at Rifling and Fragging his opponents. His close combat skills and confronting enemies at short to medium range skills are dominating, and he almost always comes out on top.

I like his confidence and boldness that absolutely bewilder his enemies, and they are often caught off guard when they are least expecting his attack. He is, without a doubt, the excellent PUBG player in the world.

Apart from being the absolute driving force behind the team Sonic’s success at PGLS 2021, he also has been an ambassador at PUBG and both, Twitch and YouTube personalities. 


Wu Zheng, or Forever, is one of the youngest players in my list that you need to be careful about while playing competitive. The famous competitive PUBG team, 4am, or four angry men, flourished just because of his skills and clutches.

During the recent champions league of PUBG, Forever was worthy enough to both be the MVP of the match and also earned the highest kills trophy.


Ubah was a former Dota 2 streamer until he joined PUBG and started playing competitively. He is often referred to as Europe’s best player. Ubah always tops the list as being the best European PUBG player ever to exist. He was crucial to the success of his team, which resulted in him winning the 2019 Nations Cup.

Ever since he has been very dominant in-game, his sheer skills were taken note of by the popular Faze Clan, and he was invited to the team.


Godv, who was a former LoL player, turned to PUBG in hopes of being the best. Little did he know that his skills would meet his expectations. Without a doubt, he quickly raised to the top ranks among the best players. Not only that, he also became the leader of the multi-award-winning PUBG Pc competitive team 4am.

I’ve seen him playing PUBG PC since day one, which makes him a true veteran and a worthy opponent to any player, no matter how good they may be. He is the God of throwables, be it Molotovs or Grenades; he just does not miss.

His team relies on him to control both large and small corners of the map, which allows his team to dominate the playground. He is also one of the most famous PUBG players in China. He represented his country in the 2021 Nations Cup and played at both PGC and PGL tournaments in 2021.


KickStart received a lot of fame after his famous clutch in which he solo carried his team to second place in PGL earlier this year.

The guy is cracked at what he does; he has phenomenal reflexes, his game sense is far better than his teammates, and he is referred to as the best fraggers in PUBG PC. I admire his total mastery in spray transfers and close combat and kills most enemies without breaking a sweat.

Inonix is the other side of Gen-G’s coin of success. After joining the team in 2020, he and Pio are known as the destructive duo that dominates the south Korean PUBG players.

For me, what makes Inonix different and better than other players is his ability to hold and anchor to a position. No matter how much pressure he receives from his enemies, he always holds his position for his teammates.

It makes him as a great teammate to have, as you can rely on him to watch your back and sides while you may push enemies or act defensively.

His unparalleled skill to out-sustain any opponent over large to medium distances earned him a spot in the competitive team, Gen-G. Not only this but his sheer skills also earn him a spot in the list of best players to date.


Sasha Batulin is the leader, fragger, and mastermind behind Virtus Pro, a very successful competitive team. The team exploded on the scene in 2020, with Batulin at the helen challenging the status quo in European PUBG.

The team has gone from strength to strength in recent months and is likely one of the top contenders in Europe for PSC4 and also potentially PGS.

The bulk of the heavy lifting in the team is done by Batulin and his immaculate in-game callouts plus his game sense. If you ever see Virtus Pro dominating the scene, you should know it’s Batulin doing the work, who is one of the best players on the face of the planet.


Curtis Bond, more commonly known as PurdyKurty, is the In-Game Leader and Leader of the Top-Tier PUBG Pc competitive team TSM. He became the leader of TSM after the team announced a new roster, shot to kill, in which Purdy came out on top.

Purdy earned a spot on my list because of the fact that he is the most self-sacrificing player for the entire PUBG e-Sports. He is able to build such positions for his team with his wacky plays that he is an important asset to the team in every sense of the way.

The Shoot To Kill team has always been known to make the most explosive plays and land the highest kills in any single match, and it also challenges opponents in the most creative ways. A lot of this comes from PurdyKurty himself, whose ability to envision scenarios ahead of time even when they have not taken place is game-breaking.

Due to this, his team is able to pull through most disadvantageous scenarios and with their backs towards the blue zone, knowing he has got them.


Another competitive PUBG PC player paves his way into my list with his phenomenal rifling skills and ground-breaking close combat skills. What sets him apart from other players on the list is his insane ability to frag out for his team is which qualifies him as one of the best players in the world. Next to Forever, he is one of the youngest ever to qualify for competitive PUBG and is likely a force to be reckoned with in PUBG for many years to come.

Snakers also as an impeccable sniper and DMR skills. Give the guy a 4x Scope with Mini-14 and watch him clear out the lobby for you. Moreover, being the versatile player he is, he can also use an M416 to dish out those campers from that squad house. The fact that he is so young and has a lot of potential left is what makes him scary and a top-tier player in PUBG in the near future.


Zhou Pinyan, also known as ZPYAN1, is a 20 years old professional PUBG player who is just 20 years old but so far has earned $445K from PUBG tournaments. So far, he has played 1036 matches, and last year he participated in 641 one of these.

He won $51K in the professional tournament held in April 2022. At the start of this year, Zhou Pinyan also secured number one standing in Huya Stands S2 and won $2K for it.


Ha Huu Tai also known as TAIKONN in the realm of professional players, is from Vietnam. His overall PUBG career has earned him nearly $7324, and his favorite role while participating in the tournament is fragger.

It was another C-tier tournament for which he won $722.
