Awful Squad: Back to Basics

A small cadre of the awfulest of the Awful Squad play PUBG to their best of their ability

Russ Frushtick is the director of special projects, and he has been covering the world of video games and technology for over 15 years. He co-founded Polygon in 2012.

In this week’s episode of Awful Squad, a small crew tests their might against the worst that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has to offer. They also attempt a brief trip into a first-person-only mode that ends ... poorly.

Today’s Awful Squad attendees include:

  • Nick Robinson
  • Patrick Gill
  • Clayton Ashley
  • Russ Frushtick
