    They don't share anything in common. PUBG is an unrealistic battle royale meanwhile Arma is a realistic game with a military focus.

      Its like if you tried to compare real war and a game of airsoft. Arma is ultra realistic simulation. BF is just a shooter.

      Squad Game vs Arma opinions
      Almost everyone thinks Squad Game is a great alternative to Arma.
      Guest

      In Arma most people play CO-OP or PvP with a lot of teamwork. They capture sectors, destroy weapon caches, e.g

      SQUAD is exactly this but only PvP. And a lot more fun then Arma.

      Just like Arma 1/2 this game is a military simulator. However Escape from Tarkov is not military focused but thats just the general name for games with realistic ballistics, damage simulation e.g. Escape from Tarkov is very good and fun to play, it is even more realistic then Arma.
