The latest PUBG Mobile update comes complete with weapon revamps and features but is headlined by something much bigger.
Karakin has become the latest map to debut in the mobile version of the hit Battle Royale franchise and is available to download today.
Offering a fresh landscape to survive in, the PUBG Mobile Karakin update brings 2km x 2km scale, boasting large open areas and rocks to hide behind.
According to the patch notes, Karakin supports up to 64-players and is built for rifles battles both in the mountains and cities.
There are also new underground areas to explore, as well as new map features to combat and use to your own advantage.
Karakin includes a new Demolition Zone, something that Tencent describes as a purple zone that needs to be watched carefully.
Not only are these areas harder to lock down, but they can also see Karakin’s Building destroyed during a match.
Another big feature added to the game this week includes changes to the interior of buildings.
When not being blown up, some buildings will include thinner walls, meaning you can fire through them as a way to clear the area.
Tencent has also revamped the Karakin weapons list, adding in the Panzerfaust and Sticky Bomb.
For those who have never wielded one, the Panzerfaust is a single shot launcher packing a punch that can tear down Karakin’s walls as well as opposing players.
Gamers will need to be careful whilst using such a weapon, as the chance of blowing yourself are also very high.
While PUBG Mobile continues to receive new content, along with fresh Royale Passes and Seasons, changes are coming.
