The Pick’em Challenge is back again, and this time for the PUBG Nations Cup 2022. The challenge gives fans the chance to earn in-game rewards by correctly guessing the outcome of the matches throughout the tournament. In addition, players can now purchase PUBG: Battlegrounds exclusive PNC 2022-themed items.

The PUBG Nations Cup 2022 has 16 national teams fighting for a share of the $500,000 prize pool. The tournament will be held in Bangkok, Thailand, from June 16 to June 19. Read more about the tournament here.

Before the tourney starts, there will be a media day live-streamed on June 15 at 4:30 AM EST through PUBG Esports YouTube and PUBG Twitch.

For PNC 2022, fans can vote for teams that they think will win matches to earn Esports Points (EP). Earned EPs can be exchanged for exclusive PNC 2022 gear in the in-game store.

Like the Pick‘em Challenges in the past, fans must have voting coupons to vote on the outcome. To get voting coupons, players need to buy thematic PNC items or use codes that appear during a PNC broadcast. Each fan can vote a maximum of seven times and earn 100,000 EP per correct selection.
