Heh, so I airdropped near the northwestern shore of the southern island at a pair of small houses. No one else was anywhere near me, houses weren't great for loot, carried on along the shore to a larger set of buildings. Still no one around, got tons of gear, camped a bit. Probably like 50 people were dead by this point. The circle corralled me to the north, so I decided to stay clear of the bridges and swam to these rocky upcroppings that aren't on the map and just kinda took in the scenery for a bit.
Was forced north again to the opposing beach where I finally started to hear gunfire. Tried to get onto this giant pier (also kinda unmapped? Or poorly mapped? It didn't seem to correspond to my map location at all), eventually swam around it, ignored a boat, swam to the beach. Small circle now, maybe 15 alive. Dodged some shots running into a tiny one-room beach hut, like a changing room thing I guess. Ran again to a larger pair of houses just off the shoreline. Stayed prone from here on to the end.
In the top 10 now. Camped for a hot second under a tree leading to the beach. Somehow, I'm in the top 5. Then 3. Killed a dude as he exited a house, then crawled around to the second house, where the only other dude was camped inside. Tossed my smoke bomb in to cover my entry, but it was I who got smoked trying to get in the door for that last kill.
Still, a really great first run. I wasn't expecting to do that well at all.
This is really
