This is it. The round of your life. You’ve dispensed with anybody who dared cross your path. And now it’s time to finish your mission: clear the rapidly collapsing combat area of all hostiles. In the conclusion of our three-part series on the decisions you make in Blackout, we’ll offer up some suggestions which may lead you to victory. It’s the final circle. Here’s what you need to know.
Utilize the Edge
During earlier circle collapses, the damage inflicted by the collapse can often be worth the strategic trade-off of catching enemies off guard from behind. But now that the game is almost over, the increased damage from the collapse makes it an extremely risky decision to engage in that area. Because this is true, you can reliably treat the edge of the circle as a wall. This “wall" protects your six from a rear ambush and allows you to keep your focus on a smaller area of potential engagements in front of you. Why try to protect yourself from all around when you can stick to the edge and keep your focus towards the center of the circle?
