PUBG New State: Major December Update & Holiday Events

Survivor Season Pass Vol. 2

The main character of this Pass’s story is Bella of the Dream Runners Faction. Players have to clear the story missions to collect all of Bella’s costumes. Here’s what else is new in Volume 2 of the Survivor Pass:

  • Upgraded level rewards for the Premium Pass
  • Rewards now include vehicle skins and more character costumes!
  • Collect NC by leveling up this Pass! At Lv. 48, you’ll have enough to buy the next Premium Pass.
  • Added BP Chests as a Free Pass reward

And the developers have also said that due to the feedback they received from numerous Survivors, players will be able to obtain 1,500 NC upon reaching Level 48 of the Premium Pass so that they can purchase the next Premium Pass.

New Lobby Theme- The Lobby background and music has been changed to a winter festival theme.

The BP Store background has also been updated.

Merit Points System- A penalty system to punish negative behavior has been added.

  • Rules: A Survivor’s Merit Points will decrease if they are reported for Friendly Fire or other displays of negative behavior, and multiple reports will result in a lower score.
  • If their Merit Points fall below a certain score, the Survivor will be restricted from playing Squad Mode. (They will still be able to play in Solo Mode.)
  • By playing Solo Mode, they can slowly increase their Merit Points over time.
  • Once their score is high enough, the restriction will be lifted, and they will be able to play Squad Mode again.

New Weapon: L85A3 Assault Rifle 

The L85A3 is a bullpup assault rifle with 5.56mm ammo offering low recoil that opens up a new way for Survivors to take on the Battlegrounds of 2051. The L85A3 can be found in both Erangel and Troi. 

L85A3 offers the highest damage of all 5.56 assault rifles and performs well in mid to long-range fights but has a low fire rate.

L85A3 [C1] Vertical Foregrip Bipod Gun Customization

Pros: Reduces vertical recoil of the L85A3, offering easier recoil control when shooting while crouched or prone. Cons- once customized, the attachment will be equipped in the L85A3’s Grip Slot and cannot be swapped out for another. This attachment also reduces ADS speed a bit.

M416 [C2] Long Barrel

The second customization is now available for the M416, but it can only be customized once per match, so choose wisely. Pros- Increases damage & Cons- Increases vertical recoil, and once customized, this attachment will disable the M416’s muzzle slot.

SLR [C2] 5.56mm Barrel

Players can swap out the SLR’s 7.62mm barrel for a 5.56mm barrel to increase firing accuracy. The cons include decreased damage compared to the 7.62mm barrel, and the SLR can only be customized once per match.

New Vehicles- Electron & Mesta

The Electron is an electric 6-seater minibus that is more durable than other vehicles. You can switch seats while in the vehicle, even when riding with a full squad. The Electron can be found in Troi and Training Ground.

The Mesta is a classic 2-seater sports car that can accelerate quickly and hit high-top speeds. This vehicle comes in two models: standard and an open top. Players can find the Mesta in Erangel, Training Ground, and certain parts of Troi.

Updated Controls & Actions

Vehicle Changes

  • The vehicle boarding parameters have been altered so that players do not have to be right beside the vehicle’s door to be able to enter it.

  • Fixed the buoyancy of vehicles in water, so it is applied normally

  • Fixed an issue in Erangel where certain rocks on the Starting Island would have holes in them

Station (Team Deathmatch) Changes

  • Decreased the area behind the spawn points so that a team cannot position themselves behind the enemy’s spawn point. 
  • Changed the spawn areas so that each team’s spawn area will now be marked in their respective team colors (blue/red) to make each team’s base more easily identifiable 
  • Changed the Report button so that it will always be visible in TDM during a match

Other Major Updates

  • Using the feedback the developers received from the community, BP refund amounts will now be higher when players acquire duplicate items.
  • Emotes can now be used in the lobby. Try out group emotes with your friends!
  • Game tips will now appear on loading screens.

  • They have also sent a special patch to everyone who worked hard to upgrade their Mad Scarecrow Costumes to thank them for their dedication and hard work.

Apart from these updates, the new patch also introduces tons of small gameplay fixes that improve player experience. For example, the issue where scope sights would occasionally show incorrect views has been patched.
