PUBG SEASON 4 unveils a stunning visual update for Erangel 2.0

PUBG - Patch Report - Update 4.1

Season 4 is here! So we want to quickly go over what seasons in PUBG will look like going forward. Each new season, players will discover thematic updates with new content, gameplay features, and trials to conquer. Furthering those themes will be the challenges and rewards of the PUBG Survivor Pass, which will coincide with the season.

Welcome to Update 4.1! For PUBG Season 4

One more thing. We’re also changing the naming convention of patches to work better with this new seasonal approach. With that said, welcome to Update 4.1! For PUBG Season 4, we're refreshing our original map, Erangel, with new complexes, improved graphics, and some surprises for fans who want to know more about the history of the battle scarred island. From the military complexes of Sosnovka Island to the power station at Mylta, key locations across the island have been revisualized for new experiences and gameplay.

There are new secrets to be found and areas to explore, without losing the core feel of what made Erangel so popular. Unique missions and rewards await the survivors looking for an extra challenge while exploring the remains of Erangel. As always, the season includes free unlockable items, but loads of additional rewards will unlock with the purchase of the Survivor Pass. You’ll have 12 weeks to progress as far as you can, but instant level packs can be purchased for those looking for a little boost. 

Outfits and gear, weapon skins

Discover new details of Erangel’s past and present by leveling up your pass and earning new AFTERMATH items like the Marksman class outfits and gear, weapon skins that include the Battlestat Bloodycomb AWM, and even our first ever vehicle skin for the UAZ. 

This survivor pass will also see the introduction of community driven missions. When the community reaches a milestone together, new rewards will unlock for Survivor Pass holders. In addition, the Survival Title system will be making its return, allowing players to climb the ranks and be rewarded with the White Tiger skins for dropping in and surviving regularly. For players who are more interested in jamming out than jamming a bridge, we’re introducing two ways to bring the tunes to your platoon. 

Spring a trap on enemy combatants with the help of our new turntable, or race across the Battlegrounds with your stereo cranked to 11 using our new “car audio” feature. Just be sure not to tune out the world so much that you don’t hear that UAZ coming up on your Dacia's six. Speaking of that Dacia, the Eastern European staple and the UAZ are both getting a visual update and rebalance. Not only are these two vehicles getting a cleaner look, but they’ll also sound and handle better in general on the hills and fields of Erangel. 

In fact, most vehicles in general have been rebalanced for this patch, allowing some of the Battlegrounds’ favorite deadly weapons on two, three and four wheels to truly reach their potential as the right tool for a particular terrain. Your feedback has been invaluable in our rebalance.

Vehicle BRDM-2

Especially with our most recently introduced vehicle, the BRDM-2. Based on the engagement we received around the boat-ish brute, we are making it more susceptible to damage in solo and duo matches. The BRDM takes more damage in duos than squads, but receives the most damage when in solo matches to give all you lone gunmen a fighting chance. 

We’ve also rebalanced the weapons in the game, with a number of buffs and nerfs coming across the board. While most Assault Rifles decreased their damage slightly, shotguns and the Kar98's received damage output increases and SMGs received a buff to the amount of damage they do over distance, making them slightly more versatile, but still not the ideal gun for a sniper fight. We’re also going to let you have holographic and red dot sights on the uzi to give you a fighting chance. Should you happen to not walk away unscathed, you can at least stay on the move while you heal up. You won’t be nearly as fast while healing and boosting on the move, so finding cover and staying put may sometimes still be the better option.
