Map rotation service for Season 15:

New Vehicle

Mountain Bike

The Mountain Bike, a fan-requested vehicle is coming to the Battlegrounds. Unlike our other vehicles, the Mountain Bike can be found as a lootable item in its folded state. It can be located most often on the outskirts of the map, helping you have additional transportation methods.

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Maps: All maps in normal matches
  • Spawned in a folded form.
  • Unfold it into a rideable vehicle or store them in inventory.
  • Folds back into an item when stored back into the inventory.
  • Due to the absence of a speedometer, the current traveling speed is not displayed.
  • Does not spawn in Esports Mode.
  • Maximum number of passengers: One
  • Maximum speed:
    • Max speed without sprinting (85% Throttle): 50 km/h
    • Riding with 40% or more Boost (90% Throttle): 54 km/h
    • Riding with sprint tapping (100% Throttle): 62 km/h
  • HP: Cannot be destroyed, including the wheels
  • Item weight: 70
  • Fuel consumption: None

SPRINTING

Like in real life, you can sprint on the Mountain Bike by putting in some physical effort to mash the “Move Forward” key repeatedly to cycle faster. Being boosted makes it easier to reach max sprint speed. Higher tapping speeds increase sprint speed.

JUMPING

Additionally, you can put your BMX skills to the test by jumping with the Mountain Bike. Holding the “jump” key longer (up to half a second) will increase jump height. High speed and being boosted also increase the jump height.

WHEELIES

We hipsters don’t ride on two wheels. We don’t find the need to use all wheels because it just ain’t cool! One, that’s right, one wheel is all we need. Try to find the perfect balance by holding the “sprint” key and tapping “jump” in rhythm to find the hipster inside you.

WEAPON BALANCE UPDATE in PUBG 15.1 Patch Update   

WEAPON BALANCE

As a battle royale game where every match presents different situations, we believe each weapon category should have its purpose in certain types of encounters. Based on our data findings and community feedback we have made weapon balance changes.

P90

  • The P90 is making the most kills of any Crate weapon and is performing better on ranges where we want Crate ARs to dominate. So we decided to increase the recoil difficulty while supplying less ammo.
    • Increased horizontal and vertical recoil
    • Increased ADS deviation during full-auto burst
    • Lowered Care package ammo from 250 -> 200 bullets

SHOTGUNS

  • The Shotguns in Battlegrounds continue to have a very limited role as seen in our data, to improve their usability we are increasing the effective range.
    • Increased damage drop-off range to improve effective range by several meters per shotgun
    • Increased hit probability on short range
    • Increased Sawed-Off damage by 1
    • Decreased Sawed-Off pellet spread

LMGS

  • LMGs in general are not considered useful enough based on our data, so we are slightly increasing their damage potential to improve the weapon’s role. For MG3 we saw very little usage in our data compared to the other crate weapons so we are making it more powerful.
    • Reduced recoil when shooting in crouch and stand
    • Increased Body Damage multiplier from 1.0 to 1.05
    • Increased M249 damage by 1
    • Increased MG3 damage by 2
    • Decreased MG3 horizontal recoil

SMGS

  • While some players feel that SMGs have a strong position due to their relatively low recoil, we still see in data that their role in weapon balance is very limited. To incentivize more accurate firing we are increasing the Head Damage multiplier. 
    • Increased Head Damage multiplier from 1.8 to 2.1
    • Increased PP-19 Bizon weapon accuracy during ADS full auto firing
    • Decreased UMP45 Damage at longer ranges
    • Decreased UMP45 weapon accuracy during ADS full auto firing

AUG

  • The AUG seems to be overtaken by the P90 and even by the user’s ability to control the Beryl, thus we are making it slightly more powerful to improve its Crate weapon status.
    • Increased damage by 1
    • Increased damage drop-off range to improve effective range

MAGAZINE BALANCE

Devs have tweaked the magazine attachments to add tactical decision-making and to improve the usefulness of the QuickDraw Magazine and Extended Magazine. Now every magazine attachment will be useful and offer its own play style.

If you want to have up to 60% faster reloads, take a QuickDraw Magazine. If you want to have the highest magazine capacity, take an Extended Magazine. If you want to have a bit of both, take an Extended QuickDraw Magazine.

Example when applied to M416:

  • Default Magazine: 30 bullets
  • QuickDraw Magazine: 30 bullets and 60% faster reload
  • Extended Magazine: 42 bullets
  • Extended QuickDraw Magazine: 40 bullets and 15% faster reload

Additionally, QuickDraw Magazine Attachment to the Skorpion has been added.

WORLD UPDATES  in PUBG 15.1 Patch Update

SANHOK UPDATE

  • Bootcamp
  • As being one of the most hottest drop zones in Sanhok, Bootcamp should be able to provide dynamic gameplay experiences. But we’ve been hearing that our players were not enjoying the reworked Bootcamp as the structure felt too crowded and complex for desirable tactical plays. Therefore, we decided to make Bootcamp undergo another big change and the best way to go at it was to shift the whole structure. Here are some of the main changes:
    • To reduce the complexity and bunched-up feeling of Bootcamp, the central tower has been repositioned from the center to the right. We have then considered different angles and distances and adjusted the layout of the other buildings around the center area to provide an open space for better shooting.
    • Players seemed to have too much of an advantage behind the parapet walls on the third floor of the central tower so we got rid of them and instead placed boxes made of stone on the rooftops.
      • We also narrowed the space between the second and third floor to reduce the advantage players had on the third floor.
    • The large windows on the second floor of the central tower were allowing a wide view of players’ surroundings which resulted in frequent camping. Thus, we have shrunk the size of the windows.
    • Training areas have been added and scattered around the center as well to provide more cover and looting spots.
    • We moved the watchtowers to place one each in the north and south to prevent players from hoarding them.
    • Players didn’t seem to have the best opportunities when they land a little late on Bootcamp. Therefore, we removed the 4 warehouses within Bootcamp and added 3 to the North (outside of Bootcamp) so even players who start late could earn a better chance at arming and hiding.
  • Players seemed to be feeling vulnerable around the shoreline areas so more rocks and trees have been added.

VIKENDI UPDATE

  • KAKAO FRIENDS
  • PUBG’s new collaboration is with KAKAO FRIENDS! More information on this collaboration will be updated in a separate announcement on the day the Live Server gets updated.
  • Dinoland has transformed into KAKAO FRIENDS LAND.
    • Kakao Friends statues have been positioned here and there in KAKAO FRIENDS LAND.
  • Billboards for KAKAO FRIENDS have been added.
  • Buildings have been decorated with KAKAO FRIENDS ornaments.
  • Christmas theme has been applied to Dinoland, Castle, and Winery.
  • Christmas weather has been added.
    • Players can use this weather setting in Custom Matches for Vikendi.

TRAINING MODE UPDATE 

  • Every vehicle but the Scooter has been removed from Training Mode to prevent various sound and crash issues and to prevent players from getting bothered by other players’ vehicles during shooting practice.
  • After we observe the change in memory usage issues, we will discuss about the feature of allowing players to choose a vehicle of their choice in Training Mode.

ACTION WHEEL UPDATE

  • An additional Action Wheel with 8 more slots has been added as we noticed that players did not seem to have enough space to fit and use all their spray and emote items.
  • Players will be able to find their additional Action Wheel in the Customize tab.
  • In the lobby or in a match, players can use their mouse wheel to switch between the first and second action wheel.
  • If players select spray items from their Action Wheel in the lobby, a message will pop up saying that sprays are unable to use.

PERFORMANCE UPDATE 

  • There has been performance updates with the Hideout tab.
    • The loading speed when first accessing the page has been improved.
    • A feature that could help prevent accidental weapon upgrades has been added.
      • A message showing the current level has been added to the Upgrade button.
      • Once a player clicks the Upgrade button, an additional confirmation message will pop up.
  • Memory usage has been improved by removing unused and duplicate data files within the game.
