Update 12.1 – Now on the Test Server

Update 12.1 Now on Test Servers – Coming to Live servers next week

Season 12 has landed on the Battlegrounds!

Drop-in and explore our biggest Miramar update since launch; with significant visual and design improvements, a new uniquely Miramar vehicle, and an armor-destroying sniper rifle, what’s not to love?

Read on for full details, including the introduction of a new weapon skin upgrade system, pre-game soccer, quality of life improvements, and more!

Miramar World Update

Miramar holds a special place in our hearts; launched alongside PUBG 1.0 in December 2017 we’re thrilled to show you the improvements made for Season 12.

Throughout the map, we’ve focused on improving the overall visual quality (lighting especially) while also keeping a close eye on improving player interactions with the environment to improve your gameplay experience.

Expect an overall smoother experience, with reduced object clutter, less troublesome coastlines, adjusted cover across the map, and more.

While points of interest will still feel very familiar, we’ve introduced key changes to improve core gameplay and keep things feeling fresh. Keep an eye out and let us know what you think!

  • Terrain Updates

We have improved the visual fidelity of textures and materials across the map. Additional cliffs have been added for steep slopes, which clearly indicate areas that cannot be climbed easily.

  • Cliff Updates

Cliffs have been improved across the map and now look much better overall.

  • Foliage Updates

Trees, plants, and other foliage have received vast visual improvements.

  • Lighting Updates

One goal of these lighting changes is to push a warmer, drier, and arid feel to help separate the feel and color palette from other maps. Looking at the map, we plotted the sun’s arch and tweaked the lighting setups to represent different times of day better. We aimed to create a softer image with less contrast to help with eye strain while still ensuring longer distance engagements.

In the existing weather types: Sunny, Sunset, Sunrise, and Cloudy, the intensity and color have been adjusted. Sandstorm and Dusk will be introduced in Challenger Mode. Finally, improvements were made to the bunker and interior lighting.

  • Building and Object Updates

Many buildings and objects across the map have received visual improvements.

  • Map Flow

Reduced clutter across the map to improve ease of movement, especially around building entrances.

New Weapon – Lynx AMR

The Lynx AMR is PUBG’s first Anti-Materiel Rifle, a semi-automatic crate gun capable of damaging military equipment and armor, in addition to players and vehicles.

Intended as a hard counter to vehicles, the Lynx is also effective in any situations you’d find yourself wanting to scope in and shoot down an enemy.

  • PUBG’s first .50 caliber weapon
  • The Lynx AMR is first and foremost the best anti-vehicle sniper rifle in the game, capable of destroying BRDMs and even penetrating the windows to kill its occupants.
    • Capable of destroying weak vehicles like motorcycles in a single shot and most regular vehicles in two or three shots.
  • Players have five shots only, with no way to reload.
  • Spawns in Care Package only on Miramar in Normal Matches. In a future update, the Lynx will be added to Custom Matches and Training Mode

New Vehicle – Quad

The Quad is an off-road vehicle with four low-pressure tires and a driver seat designed to be straddled by the operator, with handlebars for steering control, with room on the back for a teammate. Modeled after a racing-style ATV, get ready to explore the Battlegrounds on this all-terrain monster we call the Quad.

  • Seats: 2
  • Health: 750
  • Maximum Speed: 110 km/h (125 km/h at maximum boost)
  • Maximum Range: 24.4 km (18.5 km at maximum boost)
  • Only spawns on Miramar.
  • Will be added to in Custom Matches and Training Mode in a future update.

  • There is now a 90-second cooldown between airplanes.

  • Improved the sound rope sounds when attached players are moving.
  • Changed the model of the airplane.

2021 PUBG Dev Plan – World

: You can find the details for this event on the announcement page [url=]here[/url].

2021 PUBG Dev Plan – World

Hello Survivors,

We’re a good chunk of the way into the new year and already things feel much more promising than the last. 2020 was a difficult year for many and we, like other developers around the world, found ourselves scrambling to adjust to a whole new way to work and create. Through the challenges, we’re proud that we were able to debut 3 new Battlegrounds; Karakin, Paramo, and Haven, while also shipping reworks of Vikendi and Sanhok. 2020 also saw the release of Team Deathmatch and Ranked Mode, along with a number of new weapons, tools, features, and vehicles. The world as a whole may not have had a great year, but we personally have much to be thankful for- especially you, our fans sticking with us through a complicated year of experimentation.

Your continued support and feedback give us tangible goals to work towards but funneling the feedback of a global audience into one update that satisfies everyone is never an easy task. One ongoing piece of feedback we’ve heard pretty universally though is the desire for us to give more focus to larger maps, especially after a year that focused largely on smaller ones. Here, in the first part of our 2021 Dev Plan, we’re going to reveal how we’re doing just that.

As we just mentioned, after experimenting and learning with smaller maps and their unique features during 2020, we’ve taken the time to refocus on what we know many of our core audience values the most. 2021 is the year of the large map and will be in more ways than one. Let’s start with some easy wins before we talk about our plans for new and shiny.


Miramar has been a map that’s needed love for a while now. Our last revamp went a long way to help the map out, bringing it into the PUBG universe with new aesthetics and matching lore elements, while fixing a few of the pain points that existed since its launch.

With Update 12.1, we’ll be introducing a much larger remastering of Mirarmar, taking into account many of the new technologies we’ve employed in our newer maps, including lighting, performance, graphical fidelity, topography, and of course special features.

Expect to see big overhauls to terrain and building textures and layouts, easier traversal with the removal of unnecessary obstacles, and even updated cliffs to better fit in the more vertical experience the game has become.

Miramar’s remaster will make it’s way into the live server soon, so keep an eye out for more information.

Codename: Tiger

Following the remastering of Miramar, comes the first new 8×8 Battleground in 3 years. Tiger will utilize all the aspects of the Battlegrounds that you’ve known over the years but with one key change; the ability to return to the battle after an initial defeat. This is a feature we’ve seen become fairly common in the Battle Royale genre and is something we’ve been asked about quite a bit, especially when it comes to duos and squads. If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll see we’ve experimented a bit recently with what respawning on a Battleground looks like and Tiger is a big reason why.

Besides respawns, new features never seen before in PUBG will continually be added to Tiger, so stay tuned!

Codename: Kiki

The 8×8 goodness doesn’t end with Tiger. In late 2021/early 2022, our 4th 8×8 map will launch. Kiki will boast a diverse set of locations, from mysterious underground labs to massive skyscrapers to swampland to subways to underwater buildings – we’re looking at many different locations to thrill and challenge survivors in our most diverse and exploration focused Battleground yet. Planning for Kiki is still pretty early, but we’ll be back with more information later in the year.

We’re beyond excited to be getting back to business as usual in 2021. Not only as a global society, but as developers doing what we do best- huge 8×8 survival experiences to test even the most battle-hardened Survivors out there. Between Miramar, Tiger, and Kiki, you can look forward to a whole year worth of new and improved 8×8 content, always chock full of new weapons, vehicles, items, and plenty of PUBG’s signature style.

On behalf of everyone here, we’d like to thank you for your continued support and feedback. We’ll be back soon with part 2 of our 2021 Dev Plan, which will go over core gameplay and service. Thanks once again and we’ll see you on the Battlegrounds!

Premier Competitive and Retakes were popular and are sticking around. Premier Competitive is still an option in the Competitive tab and Retakes has a new home among the Wargames.

PCS 2021 Ruleset and Prizes

PCS 2021 Ruleset and Prizes

Hello PUBG Esports fans.

We received quite a bit of feedback following our announcement of the newly-introduced 2021 PCS ruleset[]. Your passion and honesty are always greatly appreciated and we want to continue the discussion regarding the concerns many of you had. Our goal with the changes is to elevate PUBG Esports for both the competitor and the viewer, so we’d like to take some time to talk about the update in a little more detail.

What you play is what you watch

Our aim with the updated ruleset is to bring PUBG Esports closer in line with the BattleRoyale gameplay experience. Winning is everything – whether you’re a solo, duos, or squads player, the Chicken Dinner is always the ultimate prize.

While the previous S.U.P.E.R. settings helped to establish a strong foundation for the competitive community by reducing some of the game’s more unpredictable elements, over time it has seen us move further away from the core concepts and objectives of Battle Royale. We’re eager to reduce the gap between what PUBG fans play, and what they watch.

There is something to be said about the sheer excitement that happens when a team wins a match. With the WWCD rules during PGI.S, we experienced many thrilling and adrenaline pumping moments throughout the tournament, and we want to maintain this feeling through future events.

How it Works

No change to the rules can be made without taking every step to maintain the element of fairness for our professional players.

Under the revised ruleset, some teams may be required to rethink their strategies and tactics, but across an increased number of matches per event, everyone will have a shot at earning a win. We’re raising the number of Grand Finals games played from 24 in PCS 2020 to 36 in PCS 2021.

Just like before, PCS events will host matches two days a week over a three week period – that means six match days in total. However, the following changes will be applied this time around:

  • Each day will have six matches, increased from four, leading to 12 matches per week and 36 matches in total.
  • Every week will be an individual league with prize money awarded to the top eight squads.
  • The team with the highest amount of prize money at the end of the tournament will be crowned champions.

Each team faces the same challenge at the start of a match: be the last squad standing. And to be champions, they’ll need to prove that they have the mettle to capture Chicken Dinners consistently throughout the event.

Earn to win

As explained above, the top teams will earn prize money across three competition weeks. There’s $70,000 USD on the line each week, with an extra $20,000 reserved for the series winner.

Kill points will still play an important factor in the new system, as equally matched teams will be separated by their kills. It will be the key factor in deciding the final rank. The deadliest player will even receive a bonus award! We’ll have more details on these soon, so stay tuned.

Keep the feedback coming

We know that this new direction is a big shift from the current ruleset, and we understand the concerns shared so far. But as we look to grow PUBG Esports through 2021 and beyond, we’re excited to revisit the core elements that make Battle Royale such a fun and unique genre to watch as well as play, and we’ll be listening to your feedback as we journey to the PUBG Global Championship.

As always, our sincerest thanks to all the PUBG esports fans out there for your love and enthusiasm. We’ll be back soon with more information on PCS4!

PUBG Esports team.
