CHARTS: PUBG was the biggest game on Steam last week

Battle royale behemoth PUBG: Battlegrounds made more money than any other game on Steam last week.

The title returned to the Top Ten and shot to the No.1 spot off the back of the Black Market opening, allowing players to buy items that they have been coveting. PUBG: Battlegrounds has made regular appearances in the Steam charts since its 2017 release but it's been a while since the title was the biggest-seller on the platform; even after six years, the battle royale hit still has legs.

In taking the No.1 spot, PUBG has dethroned Valve's Counter-Strike 2, which drops down to third place for the first time since its release. Call of Duty hangs steady in second place following the release of Modern Warfare 3, while Steam Deck returns to the charts after Valve revealed a brand new OLED edition of its hardware.

Risk of Rain Returns – the remastered version of the 2013 original – makes its debut in fifth place following a November 8th release date. The indie hit comes ahead of Apex Legends, which hangs steady in sixth place, while Baldur's Gate 3 rises one place to No.7 week-on-week.

Early Access sci-fi co-op horror title Lethal Company makes its debut in the Steam charts at eighth, one place ahead of EA Sports FC 24, which drops two rungs down the ladder to No.9. Rounding off the Top Ten is military sim title War Thunder, which was fourth last week.

Here is the Steam Top Ten for the week ending November 14th:

1. PUBG: Battlegrounds, Krafton
2. Call of Duty, Activision
3. Counter-Strike 2, Valve
4. Steam Deck, Valve
5. Risk of Rain Returns, Gearbox Publishing
6. Apex Legends, EA
