New map Karakin, new vehicle, and other new content in PUBG PC Update 6.1
New map: Karakin
PUBG Karakin features a rocky environment with wide-open terrain and tough engagements. It is a far-off island off the coast of Northern Africa with an area of 2×2 km. This map is a mix between Miramar and Sanhok and it allows 64 players to be on the map.
When joining this map, you should expect to engage in long-distance rifle battles in the mountains, tactical urban clash, and claustrophobic underground fights. Karakin map features the Black Zone that can change the layout in every match.
Black Zone (Karakin Only)
All buildings fall into smoking ruins, which is caused by the Black Zone in Karakin map, and this is a new threat to you.
- The Black Zone is made to make players fall out of the safety of a building.
- The threat is unsystematic: towns and compounds can be untouched, completely flattened, and things in between.
- There is an evolvement for the combination of buildings and ruins during the battle. Because of that, you should not always expect the building you move to for cover to be there late in the battle.
- You have to run away whenever you hear the siren while you are inside the purple circle on the minimap.
New Throwable: Sticky Bomb (Karakin Only)
The siege play has been changed a bit thanks to the addition of Breach Points that players can demolish using Sticky Bombs in Karakin.
- You can use Sticky Bombs to deal damage to some walls and floors that have breach points.
- More tools are provided to players thanks to this feature: For campers, more sightlines or windows can be created.
- If the squads usually go on the offensive, they will have some options to destroy buildings.
- For explorers, many secrets have been hidden for them to discover using a spare Sticky Bomb or two. Also, they must have a keen nose for looting items.
Bullet penetration is the next addition that you may enjoy when you want the gunbattles to be more interesting. Now, the bullets can go through the weak walls in the PUBG Karakin map. Or, you can make holes through damaged drywalls to see your enemies. From there, you can make a decision on fighting alone or regrouping your teammates.
Giving new experiences to players is something that the development team of PUBG always wants to do. They will try their best and do anything they can to make you satisfied with the PUBG gameplay.
Karakin Loot Increase – 23rd January
After receiving feedback from players during the testing stage and the first launch of PUBG Karakin, the developers have carried out a hotfix on the balance of the loot on the latest Battleground.
To let all players jump in and loot items fast, the loot spawns have been rebalanced to make your general experience better. Now, there will be more loot for you and your squad to find and pick up.
Getting through a tunnel in every match for loot is not an easy thing at all. The developers understand that feeling and now, they have already grown the spawn rate of healing and boost items with the scopes on the grounds so you can pick them up easily. Hopefully, this gives you a chance to discover more areas on Karakin map without having a feeling to get through a tunnel just to get enough items for your survival.
Your feedback is always welcome! So, don’t forget to share your thoughts and feedback on the new balance of the loot on the Karakin map.
- Developed 2x, 3x, 4x scopes
- Developed the healing/boost items above ground
- Changed the ratio of total SR/DMR muzzle attachments because of the grown spawn rate of those weapons.
- Lessened the number of melee weapons, canted sights, and magazine attachments.
- No more Sawed-off on Karakin map!
New Vehicle: Motor Glider
At the moment, you can get access to Motor Glider on live servers (which was already added to the game on January 15th).
- Moter Glider is an interesting flying vehicle that is now available on PUBG Erangel and PUBG Miramar.
- You can catch sight of 10 Motor Gliders across the map each game, throughout 40 possible areas.
- This vehicle offers two seats: one is for the pilot, while the other one is for the passenger that is able to use any weapon from the backseat to shoot enemies.
- Make sure you obtain the required speed of 65 km/h to take off. After that, you can speed up with the S key.
- Once you have obtained 70km/h, you will begin taking off automatically.
- The rate of fuel consumption for Motor Glider depends on the engine speed. If you apply more throttle, you will use up gas faster.
- When Motor Glider spawns on the map, it doesn’t have any fuel. You have to fuel it up before starting the engine.
- Just take the sky as the limit because there is no maximum altitude you can reach. However, the power of the engine will start to lose when you are at a higher altitude.
- Control the pitch using W/S, control the roll of the aircraft using A/D.
- Modify the throttle by holding the Left Shift and Left Ctrl keys.
- If you want to use the handbrake, just hold the spacebar when on the ground.
