If you’re in search of where to find the best loot in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, then you’re already one step ahead of the competition. Knowing where to find the best loot is a key component to winning in this battle royale game of survival of the fittest. We’ve played enough Battlegrounds to know where to look and what weapons to search for to increase your chances of winning.

Below, we've put together a guide on where you can find the best loot in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds! 

Air Drops

In Battlegrounds, you can often find impressive loot by opening Air Drops.

Periodically during a Battlegrounds match, you’ll hear an airplane noisily fly by. This is the sound of an incoming Air Drop crate, and inside you’ll find only the best equipment, loot, and weaponry. Common items found in Air Drops include sniper rifles, ghillie suit, and a med kit. If you choose to explore this option, though, be wary of crate campers. These Battlegrounds players tend to take the best loot from the crates and then wait for other players to show up so they can earn a few kills.

Sosnovka Island

Sosnovka Island can often be a great place in Battlegrounds to find quality loot.

Sosnovka Island is home to a military base which means that the base, Novorepnoye, and all surrounding residential areas are sure to house some prestigious weapons, loot, and armor. We’ve found our share of SCAR-Ls, M16s, grenades, military helmets, and vests here. Most importantly, there are many great places to hide once you’ve picked up your loot.


Many Battlegrounds players know that Georgopol is a great place to find some of the best loot. Quite frankly, you may not even want to go there because you’ll be jumping into a game of COD with about 5-10 other players. But if you’re confident in your shooting skills, you’re sure to find anything you can think of as long as you can get there before everyone else.

Rozhok School

You'll find some of the best Battlegrounds loot in the creepy abandoned schools of Rozhok.

Rozhok is a claustrophobic town with an abandoned school that players can explore to find some awesome and rare loot. The problem here is that many other players will be hiding in the shadows of rooms and hallways waiting for you to show up unprepared. If you can get to this spot before the wave of hungry Battlegrounds players, you may find yourself a Karabiner, Scar-L, or M249.

Yasnaya Polyana

Yasnaya Polyana is a cluttered town that is usually not frequented by Battlegrounds players. The bonus to this is that exploring the apartment buildings can get you some of the best loot including high-level armor and a full arsenal of weapons. This also includes attachments and mods. You can also find some of the best weapons in Battlegrounds, but not as common as the other areas on this list. Despite this, Yasnaya Polyana is a great place to pilfer some of the best loot in Battlegrounds if you want to walk away unscathed. 

Mylta Power

Mylta and the nearby power plant are great places to find some of the best loot in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. If you love a nice S686 shotgun, Tommy Gun, machete, police helmet, and vest, you’re definitely going to find it here. We wouldn’t say that the weapons here are better than Sosnovka, Georgopol, or Air Drops, but it’s a less risky alternative that will still earn you some nice loot.

Weapons Cache, Bunker, and Gun Range

Lastly, these three areas are the top spots to find the best loot in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

These three locations are a topic you’ll hear about frequently when players talk about where you can find the best loot in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. While you can definitely find some top-notch weapons, equipment, and loot here, they are similar to Georgopol in the sense that players flock to these places so proceed at your own risk.
