Strip Your Enemies of their Hoodie

In PUBG, almost everything your enemies drop after death can be scavenged or looted. These could be guns, ammo, gun extensions, first-aid kits, etc.

Clothing is also something that can be looted from your enemy’s dead body. So if you happen to successfully kill an enemy with some clothing you’ve wanted to try, then you’re in luck.

Just wash the blood off before you put them on – please.

Give me that cat hoodie. NOW.

To loot clothing from downed enemies, stand close to their bodies and press “Tab.”


Their clothing will show up on the “Vicinity” items list.


You can right-click to instantly replace your current clothing or add the clothing layer to your current clothing.
