PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds now has an app for tracking kills around streaming players

If you’re rushing into battle in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and shooting away, you may realize only belatedly that you gunned down a well-known streamer’s character in the process. So how can you prove to your friends that you were, in fact, responsible for someone’s demise? You can take advantage of PUBG Report, a new PC feature that tracks if you shot someone down on a popular stream.

Or if it’s the opposite and you yourself were perforated by a streamer for the delight of the viewing audience. One or the other.

The app tracks the last 14 days of streams, so if you’re particularly concerned with the potential of having a big name on your kill list, you should check sooner rather than later. You should not, however, expect to see the snow bike in the game sooner rather than later, as the development team confirmed on Twitter that it’s being held back from the next update due to unspecified critical issues.

Interesting. Hmm. There are already stream snipers that look and find streamers. So, is this tool meant to get more people to play by stream snipping?

Heh. So a word of advice. If you stream snipe Shroud thinking you might be able to get your 15 minutes of fame by taking him down you will be sorely disappointed. The guy is an fps savant. On the flip side save the clip of him embarrassing your butt, you might get views on Livestream fails.

I can just imagine the livestreamfail subreddit being plastered with spliced clipshots and streamer reactions posts…

That’s kind of fun. It’s always nice to get the drop on a well known player.
