Hello, Survivors

13.2 Highlights

New Weapon: P90

P90-1024x576.jpeg

In this update, we are adding the fan-favorite P90 SMG to Care Packages. The P90 is our first Care Package SMG since the original Tommy Gun, and as such, we made sure it is a worthy addition. It comes loaded with its own unique 5.7mm High Powered ammo, which is capable of longer-range combat, unlike our other SMGs. It also comes with a Cheek Pad, Handguard, Laser, and Silencer pre-attached and non-detachable.


It also features dual optics that allow for fast switching between close-range and medium-range combat. Use the Holographic Sight for nearby foes and Flip on the Flipsight for added magnification when they make a run for it.
It comes paired with 250 rounds of 5.7mm ammo in the Care Package.

A single magazine holds up to 50 rounds which you (and your foes) can see deplete live as you’re firing due to the magazine’s translucent design. With the translucent magazine keeping you aware of the high Rate of Fire and the Laser helping you keep track of your targets, the P90 is a solid addition to your loadout.

  • Spawns on all maps
  • Equipped with all attachments right out of the crate
    • Silencer
    • Laser
    • 50 round magazine
    • Non-detachable small low profile sight with some magnification
  • Ammo type
    • 5.7mm
  • Damage: 35
  • Maximum Effective Range: Up to 300m
  • Rate of Fire: 1,000 RPM

Taego Updates

2_a_porter-1024x576.jpeg

Introducing the new pickup truck, Porter, exclusive on Taego! The Porter is Hyundai Motor Company’s representative commercial truck, which was first introduced in 1977. Since then it has been carrying a lot of loads based on its solid basics and excellent durability. It is the only vehicle on PUBG available with the Trunk System, a new feature to be introduced below. Porter is a truck capable of carrying large loads and up to four passengers at the same time. Get your chicken dinner with the use of Porter which can easily run on any types of terrain with the support of the permanent four-wheel system!

  • Drivetrain: All-Wheel Drive
  • Maximum number of passengers: Four
  • Trunk System is available and the capacity is 400
  • Maximum Speed: 130 km/h
  • HP: 1,200 
  • Porter replaces the UAZ

New Feature: Trunk System

2_b_porter-1024x576.jpeg

With the Trunk System, you can maximize the acquisition of items for victory on Taego. Use the compartment of the Porter to load various items and take them out when needed. If the vehicle gets blown up, all the items in the compartment will also be destroyed. If you desire to keep your items safe, make sure your vehicle is safe!

  • Any item that can be placed in your inventory and weapons, helmets, vests, backpacks can be loaded into the Trunk.
    • However, due to the weight of weapons, helmets, vests, and bags, it may not be possible to load large quantities.
  • Only available on Taego with Porter vehicles.
  • The Trunk system can be accessed with the interaction key when not onboard. When onboard, it can be accessed by opening the inventory. 
  • All items in the compartment will be lost if the vehicle is destroyed. 
  • The compartment of the vehicle does not belong to one person. Anyone can load and take out items. 
  • Item weight depending on their types are as follows.
    • When a weapon with attachments is placed in the trunk, attachment weight is added and loaded into the trunk with attachments attached.

New Weapon: Blue Zone Grenade

2_c_Bluezone-granade-1024x576.jpeg

Introducing the Blue Zone Grenade! This throwable item can be used effectively if you want to deal damage in a broader area for a certain period of time. Especially in situations where you want to lure enemies out of a building. The Blue Zone Grenade creates a round blue zone with a maximum radius of ten meters, lasting for five seconds. It maintains its full size for five seconds, then decreases and disappears over another 5 seconds.

  • The blue zone gets as big as ten meters in radius and lasts for five seconds.
  • It remains in its full size for five seconds and then shrinks and disappears for another five seconds.
  • It does not explode underwater.
    • But, when activated near water, it gives damage to players inside the water.
  • Damage: 10/second
  • If you are already in the Blue Zone and are in range of an additional Blue Zone Grenade, additional damage will be applied.
    • Blue Zone + Blue Zone Grenade = Both damages apply
    • Blue Zone Grenade + Blue Zone Grenade = Both damages apply

New Weather

To maximize the experience on Taego, we are adding the following weather options to Taego. They will be randomly applied. 

  • Sunset
  • Overcast

Blue Zone Rebalancing

Based on community feedback, we decided that the first phase of the Taego Blue Zone was a bit long. Therefore, we have reduced the duration of the first phase to provide a smoother Taego play experience. Enjoy more dramatic Taego through quicker farming!

Comeback BR Improvements

Since the introduction of Comeback BR, we have received a lot of feedback about how it could get boring. Therefore, we have made the following changes to encourage fast-paced Comeback BRs. 

  • Blue Zone Changes
    • Now the Bluezone will shrink even more
  • Timeline changes
    • The total time of the Comeback BR has been reduced
    • Players can return to the battlegrounds when the phase two Bluezone starts to shrink

Join Team

5_In-a-Team-1024x576.jpeg

We have updated the Join Team feature where PUBG Friends can now join teams without invitations! The difference between this and the Team Invite feature is that this doesn’t require “accept” from the team. This significantly reduces the waiting time as players will not need to wait for the team leader and team members for match-making. 

  • Join Team feature can be turned on/off from the Settings.

Direct Message

  • DM Spam Blocker
    • If an abnormal number of DMs are sent in a short period of time, DM feature will temporarily be restricted. 
      • If 40 DMs are sent within a minute, it will be restricted for 30 seconds.
      • This applies both during matches and when in the lobby.
    • Chat and connection alert messages received during a match will be sent to the lobby.
      • Messages received during a match can be read in the lobby after the match ends.

World

  • BLACKPINK collaboration elements have been removed.
  • Improved bots are spawned on Karakin.

Lynx AMR Update

6_Lynx-1024x576.jpeg

Since the release of the Lynx AMR, low ammo capacity combined with the inability of players to access additional ammunition has limited the overall usefulness of the weapon. To make the Lynx AMR widely used in the battlegrounds, we have increased the ammo capacity.

  • Increased ammo capacity from 5 to 10.

Esports

7_esports-1024x576.jpeg

Esports tab is added. Below updates are applied.

    • Added PUBGESPORTS.COM’s teams and players information.

Taego Updates

Taego World Improvements

2.jpg

Since the introduction of Taego, we have been continuously analyzing the play history to collect information about the overly advantageous areas on the map. As a result, we discovered that some regions of Taego have a relatively high win rate compared to others. After checking the win rate of the most popular combat zones, objects and terrain improvements were made for the areas with a win rate of 75% or more.

  • Improvements
    • Added cover to the mountain area north of the Palace and the river area east of the Terminal.
      • Fixed field of view, bends, and cover for areas where terrain composition is difficult to overcome.
    • Improved the cliff topography in the north of Buk San Sa area.
      • Corrected the height of the cliffside terrain, which was considered to be OP.
    • Reorganization of the topography around the School area.
      • After removing the surrounding trees, added fields.
    • Covers and hills have been reorganized.
      • Terrain improvements in some coastal areas.
        • Redline: Corrected the cliff topography of the entire coast.
        • Blueline: Removed rocks located around the lighthouse.
    • Some mountain/river areas:
      • Green area: Added trees to the hillside.
      • Magenta Zone: Added flat terrain curves.
      • Sky Blue Zones: Added cover for areas that lack cover.

Error Space 

errorspace1-1024x576.jpg

Introducing the Error Space, this map exclusive feature to Taego allows players to gather other map-exclusive weapons and supplies to be spawned randomly within these zones.

Error Space zones are displayed randomly on the minimap  and will be active until the end of the match, so make sure you head to the Error Space early so you don’t miss out! 

Game Modes:
   Custom Match
        – Players can set the number of Error Spaces.
        – Players can set the spawning probability of Error Spaces.

Breakable Pot

4.-%E1%84%92%E1%85%A1%E1%86%BC%E1%84%8B%

Various items are placed in Breakable Pots that are placed all over the map. Break the pot to loot multiple items inside and lead the match to victory. However, be aware that the sound of breaking the pot may expose your location to enemies. You may break the pot by punching it, but a few shots with your gun can come in handy.

Comeback BR and UI Improvements

5.-Respawn-Message-1024x576.jpg

We received much feedback on the inconvenient situations that players experienced while waiting for Comeback BR. Therefore, to provide a better overall experience, we have made the following improvements.

  • UI Improvements
    • A warning message will be displayed when trying to leave while spectating Comeback BR.
    • If you die while being able to participate in Comeback BR, “Exit to lobby” button will be disabled for three seconds.
    • A timer that indicates the time left until the start of Comeback BR will be displayed.
    • Comeback BR team UI improvements
      • Nicknames are now displayed brighter for squadmates who are waiting for Comeback BR to begin.

Vehicle Balance Updates

We gave high low-end torque and excellent stability in consideration of the rugged and mountainous terrains of Taego for its exclusive vehicles. Also, Taego is very difficult to travel without a vehicle. So we have high max speeds to prevent them from being destroyed easily from attacks. However, we have listened to the voices of our community saying the top speeds were too fast, so we have reduced the top speeds of the vehicles.

  • Pony Coupe
    • Normal: Reduced from 140km/h to under 130km/h.
    • Boost: Reduced from 150km/h to under 140km/h. 
  • Porter
    • Normal: No changes are applied.
    • Boost: Reduced from 130km/h to under 120km/h.

Ranked Ruleset

  • Leaver Penalty
    • The leaver penalty should be applied for players who have died and are qualified for the Comeback BR but choose to leave the match without waiting for the Comeback BR to begin.
    • Leaver penalty is applied when leaving match during Comeback BR

Erangel Updates

Pochinki 

6.pochinki-1024x576.jpg

An update has been made to Pochinki, one of the most popular drop points for dropping on Erangel. Until now, it was challenging to escape from Pochinki after early match combat without a vehicle. Also, the surrounding area was made up of fields, which made it easy for the enemies to find you. The following updates have been made to address these difficulties. Last but not least, the quality of the terrain around the map has been improved.

  • Pochinki Church Renewal 
    • In order to balance with the surrounding two or three-story buildings, we have blocked the church rooftop play.
    • Added a secret room in the basement of the church where items are spawned. This room can be accessed without a key. 
  • Updated Terrain Around Pochinki
    • Added waterway.
    • Added cover.
    • Added fences.
    • Fixed terrain height. 
  • Improved Pochinki Terrain Quality.

New Feature: Carry

9.Carry_-1024x576.jpg

Making its way to the Battlegrounds this update is the new Carry feature. Be the hero your team deserves by risking it all to carry an ally to safety or take a downed enemy on the adventure of a lifetime – before they bleed out, that is. 

There are pros and cons to picking up a downed player. For one, they’ll serve as a sort of human shield, guarding you against some incoming fire (pro for you, con for them…), but in return, you will not be able to sprint, jump, crouch, prone or hurdle, so make sure you choose your rescue route carefully. You can still fire while carrying a player, but your options are reduced to hip fire only. As for the carried player themselves, their bleed out time will be lowered, and they’ll also be able to spot for you, though their visibility will be limited to whichever way you turn them.

  • Available on all maps.
  • You may pick up any downed player (friend or foe) that is not currently self-reviving or being revived.
  • While carrying a player, the following is true:
    • The following cannot be used.
      •  Panzerfaust
      • Melee weapons
      • Throwables (includes Gas/Jerry Can)
      • Emergency Pickup
      • Emergency Parachute
    • You and the carried player still take damage separately.
    • Your movement speed remains the same. However, you cannot crouch, go prone, sprint, jump, or hurdle.
    • You may still fire your weapon, but from the hip only.
    • You may not use healing items.
    • You may not use throwables.
  • While being carried a player, the following is true:
    • Your field of vision is limited to the direction your carrier is facing you.
  • Carried players cannot join you in a vehicle.
  • When the Carrier starts to swim Carry is canceled and the carried person drops/sinks to the bottom.
  • You cannot attach to an Emergency Pickup while carrying a player.
  • You may not use an Emergency Parachute while carrying a player.
