There are currently several options for Vehicles in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Vehicles spawn at particular locations on the map and contain a random amount of fuel ranging from 40-100%.




  • Tires can be shot out from any vehicle that has them.
  • A car can explode from grenades or getting shot.
  • If you exit a vehicle that is traversing at high speed, you will take lethal 'fall damage'.
