PUBG’s Vikendi update added a lot of new features including an expanded Dino Park(now called “Dino Land”), new building and most importantly a train yard. As soon as the update started rolling out on PC, many gamers began asking the question as to how to board train in PUBG. Since the update has only been around for a few months, our observations are based on limited tests on the current version.
Different kinds of Trains in PUBG
A few months back, PUBG developers removed Vikendi from the game’s map rotation – which created a heated debate within the community. However, as a part of their new Season 7, PUBG Corp is bringing a revamped version of Vikendi.
Perhaps the biggest change on the new version of the map, the game will now have a total of seven trains running across the Vikendi map. Before this new update, the game had no public transportation.
With this addition, players can move around the map easily – given the train perfectly enters the zone rather than taking you away from it. Hence, it will be exciting to see how it turns out!

How to board train in PUBG
1. Spotting the train and the train station
As said before, the game has a total of 7 trains now. Among these 7, one train drives around the entire map while the others have restricted routes. If you look closer into the map, you will notice blue lines and red squares. These indicate the train routes and the train stations respectively.
2. Getting into train
The said 7 trains will halt for a few seconds at the train station. So, for you to get inside the train, all you have to do is to jump into the window or the door. The train has a wide window, hence you can easily enter through it. On the other hand, if the train is moving, you can still try and get inside of it – but, you should be very cautious while doing so. Because, like any other game, in PUBG too, getting hit by a moving train will instantly kill you.
Are there Glitches?
Since this is the first version of the new update, the gamers did expect some glitches. The majority of the glitches had to do with physics. For instance, if the drop is to fall in front of the train, instead of taking it along with its route, it will pass right through it. Furthermore, if you strategically place hundreds of cars in front of the train(highly impossible, but still tested), it won’t stop the train – as a matter of fact, it won’t even slow it down!
We have answered your question as to how to board train in PUBG. Now, you can board trains and experience it for yourself. However, do play it safe. Recently, there was an instance where a player died while moving from one compartment/cart to another. The developers might address these issues in the forthcoming updates. Until then, it is advisable to not take unnecessary risks by boarding trains while playing a serious match.
