New PUBG app lets you know when killing a streamer and vice versa

In case you've been stressing over your unintended public appearances in PUBG, i.e. getting wrecked and laughed at by streamers and their hordes of fans, you can now at least be certain, thanks to a new application called PUBG Report.

What PUBG Report does is let players "search for a PUBG account to see reactions of Twitch streamers killing or getting killed by that person." The service is as simple as entering your username and having a look, as you'll soon be directed to the exact stream you're looking for.

Of course, the service goes vice versa, so if you're the one doing the killing, PUBG Report will let you know that you've just killed a famous person. At least you know what Twitch stream to visit after you're done, so that you can collect those accumulated salt deposits.

Even though the app's auto-complete occasionally offers Xbox One usernames, PUBG Report currently supports only PCs. According to the developer, however, console support is on the way.

If you happen to run into problems, PUBG Report's developer advises either searching for your previous username, since the auto-complete database does not update at the moment, or waiting a bit longer, because the app may still be busy processing data.

Speaking of data, the app relies on the official PUBG API, which only retains 14 days worth of data, but PUBG Report wrote they "will return every result that is stored in [their] database unless the Twitch video becomes unavailable due to deletion or expiration."

If you're worried about the legality of the app, don't - PUBG Report would be impossible without the official support by the PUBG API, which "makes it easier for users to have open access to in-game data, which developers can use to build awesome tools and services."

That being said, we really wish someone made an app called PUBG Netcode Report, so that we can see just how many hamsters die daily on PUBG Corp's network infrastructure. 

You can find the PUBG Report app on its official website here.
