Last week, a brand new PUBG PC update has been released on live servers, introducing new vehicles for the Vikendi map, new weapons, the Flare Gun item and more.

New Vehicle: Zima

Added a new Vikendi exclusive vehicle, Zima.

  • The Zima replaces UAZs on Vikendi.
  • It won’t have perfect control on Vikendi’s snowy plains, however the 4×4 Zima is much easier to maneuver compared to other vehicles.
  • While the Zima is relatively slow, it has high durability making it ideal for combat situations.

New Vehicle: Snowbike

Added a new Vikendi exclusive vehicle, Snowbike.

  • The Snowbike replaces motorbikes on Vikendi.
  • What the Snowbike lacks in durability, it makes up for with high speed and great maneuverability.

New Item: Flare Gun

Added a new item, Flare Gun.

  • Flare Guns are now available in public matches and can be found as a rare item spawning in the world.
    • If you’re lucky enough to find a Flare Gun, fire it directly into the air after the initial blue zone has closed to call in a special care package.
    • When firing the Flare Gun inside the current safe zone, you’ll call in a special care package with lots of loot, or an armored UAZ when fired while outside the current safe zone.
  • Based on your feedback through our public Flare Gun tests, we’ve made changes to improve the gameplay experience with this item.
    • Flare Guns used in the early phase of the game often give a great advantage with little risk, therefore, the Flare Gun will only deliver a care package when used after the first blue zone phase.
    • A message will be shown on the UI when a nearby player successfully calls in a special care package with the Flare Gun and an icon indicating the location of the drop will be displayed on the map.
      • Calling in an armored UAZ will not display a message on the UI, or be indicated on the map.
    • The Flare Gun spawn rate is different on each map.

PUBG is now available on PC as well as on consoles and mobile platforms.
