Welcome back, Survivors!
And welcome to the Badlands,
population: eventually just one.
PUBG is built around combatants being able to use
as many conceivable strategies
as possible to survive the Battle Royale.
To that end, Season 5 of PUBG will be bringing
you even more items,
game modes, and updates,
to Fight Your Way Out.
Season 5 starts off by crossing the border
PUBG’s second map is getting some new attractions for the lead-footed Mirado
and Motorbike enthusiasts among you, to jump, loop, and perform otherwise insane vehicular stunts.
We’ve also rebalanced spawning of major
items and streamlined the play areas of the map,
by removing excess items that had previously
prevented vehicle access to hotzones.
The Season 5 Survivor Pass, Badlands, launches
today with new rewards, missions, and loot,
for players of every level,
including clothing and weapon skins
of the people who once occupied
this ruthless region.
Speaking of those people, a new community
mission brings together all of PUBG’s legions of players,
to help reveal the story behind
Miramar’s incorporation as a Battleground.
For those looking to beef up their arsenal,
the Miramar classic Win94 is finally
getting a much demanded scope.
Much like the VSS, the Win94’s 2.7x scope
is permanently attached,
making the .45 caliber repeater
a more dangerous threat at a distance.
For melee maniacs out there that like to keep
their kills personal,
we’ve added a new way
to take down your enemies.
Whether you’re out of options or just want
to style on your enemy survivors,
you can now throw melee weapons
at your opponents.
It might take a little practice to bullseye
that runner, but it sure beats chasing after them.
Kudos to the first flying pan kill.
That new found free throw range will come
in handy in duo and squad combat as well,
since you can now toss an ally some of those
Don’t let being pinned by gunfire stop you
from tossing your bro a cold one
to change the momentum of your push on the enemy.
Just remember they can’t catch an energy drink
if they’re shooting their gun.
We’re also introducing a new way to collect that now tossable loot via the Interactive Supply System –
vending machines with randomly generated health kits and energy boosts for your moment of need.
For now, these are only spawning on Miramar
and Camp Jackal.
We’ve thrown a lot at you already, but there’s
also some QOL updates to the UI
that allows players to more clearly see
their inventory and life stats.
The customization tab is also a bit more streamlined
when browsing and equipping your skins.
You look great, by the way. Now stop camping
that bathroom mirror and get moving.
You can check out the rest of the patch notes on PUBG.com,
to be ready to kick up some dust
on the Badlands.
Your Fight. Your Story. Your Battlegrounds.
