In the end, the top six teams claimed their piece of the R10,000 prize pool. Check out the winners below:

ACGL explains what went down:

“Over the four qualifiers in the previous three weeks, over 1,200 participants battled to secure a spot in the 96-player finale. The final 48 duos did not disappoint on the live broadcast, with the top two teams separated by the narrow margin of just two points.”

 

It will be exciting to watch (and participate) in the second PUBG Mobile Duos Cup, and it is great to see so many local players join in the action.

 

If you missed the cup, you can always watch the full stream of the finals on the ACGL YouTube channel.
