UPDATE – PUBG map selection has been removed by Bluehole. And unfortunately “PUBG Map Chooser” doesn’t work anymore. THERE IS CURRENTLY NO WAY TO CHOOSE YOUR PUBG MAP.
In PlayerUnkown’s Battlegrounds there are two maps that you can play, Erangel (the original map) and Miramar (the new desert map). While Bluehole has been hinting that they’re going to implement a map selection mechanism in the future, what map you’re going to end up playing is still down to chance. So, that begs the question, in the meanwhile..
How to Choose the Map in PUBG? A Reddit user by the nickname CodeFive has created a little utility that does something very simple: it renames the files for the map that you don’t want to play, so that the game will automatically skip the games where that map is chosen. To use this utility, simply select the map you want to play, click on “Set maps to use” and then start your game. Voilà, now you’ll play only your preferred map. You can download the application from GitHub by clicking the button below.
Bluehole’s PUBG Map Selection Mechanism
A new, actual map selection mechanism is coming to PUBG soon. The map selection system is going to work in the following way: You can select the maps you want to play with a click. If you don’t want to play a map, simply unselect it. If you’ve selected more than one map, the game will randomly pick one for you each time you start a match. And here is a mock-up of the UI (note that the final implementation of the system is likely to be slightly different).

no map selection = leave the game forever ..that it, and i am not single to think this..
I’m surprised they even let you choose between FPP and TPP still and not make that randomized too. Can you imagine if they took that away too!!??
Hi STARS, for me, choosing map was absolutely awesome, please give this option back into game
Thanks a lot!
I just recently bought this on Steam after enjoying Miramar on the mobile version. Now I find out it’s going to force me into a random map every time I want to play. I hate Sanhok, I hate Vikendi. I’m not going to waste my time hoping the random map ends up as what I want, I’m getting a refund.

I think you should be able to choose your own map. Period
I want to choose maps. This sucks a lot
Sanhook is best!!!! i hate all the others!! add selection
LET US PICK OUR MAPS!
Let me pick my map
No more for Asia
It’s just so stupid that you can’t choose your maps or regions anymore! On top of that, the maps rotations are terrible!! Only game that takes away options the older it gets. On a side Note, if you want to play in a region of your choice, you can use certain vpn programs. If you are in Australia you get a crap ping anyway so it makes no difference.
Totally agree – hopefully they’ll do something about this.

This is retarded. Just allow us to select the map we want to play. Why do this. I’m not going to play this game if I can’t choose the map I want to play. This is stupid, and I’ve paid for a game I’m now no longer happy with.
Lol c’mon dude. If you could choose maps then no one would be able to play on certain maps. Player base isn’t high enough. This keeps things interesting anyway.
What about challenges for weapon skins? Certain guns are only found on certain maps and only limited time to do said challenges. Why give challenges if you take away the convenience to complete them, they are taking away content from their own game this way
Only for NA Servers map selection is removed.. For Asia it is still there …
My friends in Europe are able to select a specific map, I cannot and it sucks. Please fix this.
They hate US.

This is bullshit!
Why ruin a good thing?
I do get tired of quitting until I roll the map I want. I advise that people decide on the map they want before hitting play and NEVER accept anything else. I have ended gaming sessions early due to the frustration of having to back out of 3-5 games before I roll my desired map. If you just accept their random map, it won’t change
This is disappointing. I like one particular map. Two maps I really do not like; I guess I will have to tab out when I get those.
I love how it’s a “randomly selected map” when you play solos (or any game mode) now and it’s ALWAYS god dam Sanhok
It’s gone they took it away and ruined the game again.

I still have the map picking since last patch. only erangle and random. whats wrong?
still cant choose between erangel and miramar, so i guess the method above is still valid?
