UPDATE - PUBG Lookup will be available on a limited scale tomorrow
Thursday, November 29th 2018
Wow. You are all incredible. I never thought in the few short hours that the announcement was live that I would get the kind of response I've gotten. You have emailed, messaged me on twitter, posted comments on Reddit and I've even gotten a donation from you kind souls.
The internet is a wonderful, horrible, beautiful, nasty, kind-hearted place.
I'm going to commit to updating what I can tonight. I think that I have found a middle ground so that these pages will still be available to PUBG Lookup users.
Will remain available
- Recent Matches
- Match reports
- Recent Match Statistics
What will (likely) not be available
- Season statistics
- Lifetime statistics
I will do my best to get as much of the site back to fully functional as possible. I hope that those of you that use this site regularly will stick around and I hope that I can make it continue to work like it always has in the next few days. Good thing the weekend is coming up!
You all have been very, very heart warming for a nerd with a passion project. Thank you for speaking up.
PUBG Lookup is shutting down tomorrow.
Thursday, November 29th 2018
The API team has made changes to the way we make requests to their system. These changes will break the vast majority of requests that we make to their system. Without a significant investment of time to re-work a huge portion of PUBG Lookups requests it will stop working tomorrow, November 30th.
The fragmentation of the API is just getting worse and worse. This is a project that I built for the community and for fun. It costs money to run it and now with this new update it just doesn't make sense to try to keep it going. To the thousands and thousands of users that have enjoyed this site... I really appreciate you all. To everybody that was so encouraging on Reddit... I appreciate you all so much more. The kindness in this community is fantastic. I just don't have the hours in the day to keep up with PUBG's breaking changes.
With immense sadness... We'll be shutting down tomorrow. If I can find the time to re-work the system or if PUBG updates their API to not be so fragmented between platforms then I will be able to bring it back online.
Thank you all. From the bottom of my heart.
Note : If you'd like to get in touch with my I'm on twitter @pubglookup and you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Player health in Player Damage Details - Timeline
Monday, November 19th 2018
PUBG tracks a player's health down to two decimal places. This means that you or somebody you are fighting can have a health of 0.01 and still be alive. In the damage timeline, this was represented as 0 but not dead. I've udpated the timeline to show decimal places when the player has less than 1 health and is still alive. If you've ever spectacted a player that just killed you and has seemingly zero health... that's why. Cheers all!
Lifetime stats have been updated
Thursday, November 15th 2018
Lifetime statistics should now show the correct information. I was able to locate an issue that was causing an entire season of data to not be considered in the lifetime statistics calculations. If you are still seeing problems with your stats, please submit a bug report and I'll dig into it! Cheers everybody and thanks for your patience!
There was a DDOS attack earlier today
Tuesday, October 30th 2018
It appears to be ongoing. I am moving some things around to try to mitigate the attack and get the site back to normal. You might notice some interuptions during this process.

PUBG has updated the API for only PC players
Monday, October 22nd 2018
To all of the PC players on PUBG Lookup : the PUBG API team recently changed the API but only for PC players. This means that PUBG Lookup can no-longer rely on the same information to be returned for both XBOX players and PC players. I'll be implementing these updates as soon as possible and hoping that they don't fracture the API much more!
Adding South America to XBOX server regions
Thursday, October 11th 2018
PUBG recently released a new server region for South America. I've added the server region to the player search dropdown. The region was just released today. Good luck hunting those dinners to my friends to the south!
Season statistics are ordered in a more reasonable way now
Monday, October 8th 2018
Season statistics used to be presented in alphabetical order based on the game mode type. That has been updated to a new, more reasonable way.
Old Way : Duo, Duo FPP, Solo, Solo FPP, Squad, Squad FPP
New Way : Solo FPP, Solo, Duo FPP, Duo, Squad FPP, Squad
"Ping Quality" clarification and updates
Sunday, October 7th 2018
"Ping Quality" is a term that is provided by PUBG as a parameter for the match as a whole. It does not represent the player's ping to the server. My interpretation of Ping Quality is that "High = Good, Low = Bad". Note that the variable is called
PingQuality and not just
Ping. I've added a tooltip to the Ping Quality display in match reports.
If I can get an official answer on Ping Quality from PUBG I will post an update.
