The contents of the new update # 29 are currently released on the live server in the PC version "PUBG".

About the change point of update # 29 for PC version "PUBG"


Having made a primary balance adjustment on the appearance of Vikendi's items in January this year, we have been discussing how to make Vikendi more attractive to players. And we did some tests to provide features and unique content only for "Vikendi", and based on the results of the tests, we decided to carry out a second-order balance adjustment for "Vikendi".

 Adjustment for the blue zone
In order to provide a variety of gameplay experiences, we adjusted the first Blue Zone safety zone of "Vikendi" to be displayed in more areas, and reduced the time for certain phases of the Blue Zone.  

Phase 1 safety zones have emerged in more places.

The wait time for the initial and final phases of the Blue Zone to be reduced has been reduced, and the overall match time has been reduced by 1 minute and 30 seconds.

Adjustment for the appearance rate of vehicles
We reduced the proportion of motorcycles on the map and increased the emergence rate of four-wheeled vehicles to accommodate more players according to the characteristic landscape of "Vikendi".

In order to facilitate the setting of the new blue zone, we changed the appearance rate of vehicles.

Adjustment for item appearance rate
In order to activate medium- and long-range battles and to prepare for these adjustments, we adjusted the rate of emergence of the weapons to ensure "Vikendi" concept and balance. Also, in addition to adjusting the appearance rate of certain weapons, we have made some adjustments to the attachment to support gameplay in general. 

Starting with SR, I adjusted the emergence rate of major weapons.

The incidence rate of AR increased by 35% (approximately 1.4 times)

The emergence rate of DMR increased by 98% (approximately 2 times)

The occurrence rate of SR increased by 588% (about 7 times)

The appearance rate of SMG, shotguns, handguns and crossbows has been reduced slightly.

The appearance rate of attachments has been increased slightly.

Increased the appearance rate of high magnification scopes.

Balance adjustment for the secret cave
In order to make the game play more comfortable considering the impact on the game, we adjusted the supplies in the caves by balancing the other areas of Vikendi with the supplies. 

Supplies will no longer appear in the cave.
Instead, the types of items that normally appear have increased.

Firearms, add and remove items
Added MK47 Mutant, Half Grip, Thumb Grip and Laser Site to "Vikendi".
Removed Win94 and R45 from "Vikendi".
Adjust the weather probability
The probability of moonlight mode has increased. 


Fixed an issue where anchorage was able to penetrate the wire fence 

Tactical map marker 

Six new tactical map markers have been added to various situations (attack, danger, defense, search, regroup, vehicles) to support smooth communication between teammates. 

To use a marker on the world map, open the map, right-click and hold, display the tactical map marker wheel, move to the desired icon and release the long press.

Each player can place only one marker at a time.

Standard map markers can be installed with a single right click on the map, just like existing ones.

Tactical map markers are displayed on the world map, mini map and compass as well as existing map markers. 

Improving the Crosshairs of Throwing Goods 

When using throws, added a new crosshair that makes it easy to identify top or bottom throws. 

Minimap improvements 

Icons and status are now displayed at the end of the minimap for teammates outside the minimap that are close to the player. This makes it easy to check the direction of the teammate and the status of the teammate.  

Improvement about parachute UI 

By dividing the parachute drop altitude and velocity UI into two gauges and locating the necessary information at the center of the screen, it has been made easier to understand.

Improvement on teammate status UI

An icon has been added to indicate that teammates are descending from the plane.

The status icon of a teammate in parachute, which was previously only shown on the map, is now displayed in the lower left of the screen along with the other teammate's UI.

Improving the flare gun UI 

To make it easier to summon supplies and armored vehicles UAZ with a flare gun, we changed the flare gun's cross hair to be circled when trying to fire the flare gun at the right place.

Adjusted the flare gun status UI that appears after summoning supplies or armored vehicles UAZ.

In the past, a green blinking light was displayed for 30 seconds after dropping, but the green blinking light disappears when the drop item leaves the plane. 

Custom match 

Added the equipment kit option to the custom match.

Added the option to select the equipment kit of your choice, using the equipment kit randomly given at custom match.
Added the equipment kit selection option to "War Mode", "War Mode: Conquest" and regular custom matches.

Added Camp Jackal to "War Mode: Conquest"

UI / UX 

Improvement about shop preview UI 

When previewing set items, previews can now be viewed in three categories: Character, Weapon, and Parachute.

You can select specific items and see the zoomed image and details of the characters, weapons and parachute.

You can now equip and disarm all currently selected items in the set item preview. 

UI improvements to prevent abuse in spectator mode 

At the time of watching a teammate, if loading of the map (world) was not completed, the player was able to identify the enemy player who was behind the building, and was able to teach the teammate the location of the enemy player. Added a UI to prevent the screen from being displayed until loading is complete. 

Improvement about lobby UI 

Improved the appearance of some of the icons that appeared blurry at 4K resolution more clearly.

I removed the third party account link button in the upper right of the lobby.


Removed all FACEIT Global Summit signs and flags for "Vikendi" and "Sanhok".
