Infantry captured the $80,000 first prize at the PUBG Continental Series 1 - Asia event on Sunday.

Infantry finished the 20-round event with 182 points, easily outdistancing runners-up Team Quadro (155) and Griffin (155). Team Quadro pocketed $35,000 for their second-place finish while Griffin took home $20,000 after ending up in third.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds was scheduled to conduct a Global Series this year, but those plans were altered due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In place of the Global Series, the PUBG Corporation is holding the PUBG Continental Series, with four regions -- North America, Europe, Asia and Asia Pacific -- competing in local online tournaments. Series 1 for each region concludes this weekend, and Series 2 for each region will be held in August.

The 16-team Asia event had an initial prize pool of $200,000.
