As mentioned, the flare will attract all the nearby players to your drop. This will be a great opportunity to get some kills. If you have enough loot and still have a flare gun, don’t waste it, rather use it to lure enemies. Grab a safe position and just wait for some easy kills.

Looting Tactics

Once the super drop lands, you will never want to die without even checking what’s inside. Smoking near the drop is always a good practice as you can hide from campers. Moreover, grab everything you need in no time and rush to high ground. This will help you to have a better visual of your surroundings.
