Always be mindful of your position with named locations on the map. Survey which towns are out of the safe zone and which direction players must head toward. Predicting player movement can help you avoid or get into fights.
Moving along the edge of the circle can help ensure that one of your sides will be generally safe. In the final moments of a match, it is vital to position yourself inside the safe zone. Fighting against the zone while battling the last couple of players puts you at a huge disadvantage. If you are already fortified in the circle, you can solely focus on taking out enemies that are scrambling to safety.
