The Hangzhou Asian Games 2022 will be a historic event for the esports community, as esports will make its debut as a medal event on the world stage for the first time ever, with games such as PUBG Mobile, Arena of Valour, and many others taking part. According to a new report from the Korean publication Money Today, the version of the games in the Asian Games will not allow players to shoot each other.

Shooting other players is, as one might expect, a large part of what each player does in a battle royale game like PUBG Mobile – how will it work in the Asian Games? According to Money Today, instead of shooting each other, the version of the games will have players compete in skill challenges such as driving and shooting targets.
