Players can now enjoy fierce battles on the third PUBG map – Sanhok – which has just been added to the game recently. PUBG Sanhok has been considered as a very competitive map with plenty of fierce battles between online players. In order to create more competitive matches, the PUBG development team made a decision on bringing Sanhok into combat. Nevertheless, as a result, Sanhok was not well received from players for some reason that was not actually suitable for a battle in PUBG game. Do you want to know why? Have a look at some reasons mentioned below!
Reasons that make PUBG Sanhok an unsuitable map for combat
Sanhok is a very small PUBG map with a modest size of 4×4
The area of the map is the main reason why PUBG Sanhok is not suitable for squad combat in PUBG, but only for Solo and Duo battles. Since the battles on Sanhok usually take place earlier than other maps, like Erangel and Miramar. The combat tactics for the teams will not be easy to give out, also, they will find it nearly impossible to do. Due to the small size, it will be a high chance for a lot of teams to be destroyed in the early stages of the fight.
According to a certain number of players that experienced PUBG Sanhok map, they believe that Sanhok will be more proper for Solo and Duo matches instead of Squad battles.
There is a piece of specific evidence coming from a recent battle on PUBG Sanhok. It shows that the map was not really a good experience for Squad matches when 10 players were totally choked at the cliff area while there was already a team winning after 15 minutes of hiding in a warehouse.
A professional gamer of Team Liquid named Ibiza stated that PUBG Sanhok would be probably more suitable for 10 teams per game, or the tournament format should be changed to adapt to the map. Sanhok could be an exciting map to play but this is not what experts and skilled players think.
Vehicles become useless on PUBG Sanhok map
Besides the small area of the map making the battles tougher to play, the vehicle is also a problem that players experienced on the Sanhok map. The vehicles on PUBG Sanhok have become useless when they were not much used due to the close-range battles. In addition, the sound of vehicles will also attract opponents, causing you to be easily spotted by them, or you will find it more difficult to enter the circle if there are obstacles that get in your way.
Through all the reasons mentioned above, hopefully, the development team of PUBG will soon give out suitable alterations in order to enhance Sanhok and make it much better for combat in PUBG game.
