    • PUBG Miramar now also features a Gold Mirado. This is a brand new car that you can only see at the garage in Hacienda del Patron.

    • In each match, there is only one Gold Mirado.
  • Miramar now becomes much cleaner
    • Small objects and trash were eliminated out of buildings to lessen clutter and players can now move much easier when looting items.

Miramar item spawn balance improvement

  • There was an increase in the spawn rates of some weapons and scopes effective at long range. The purpose of this increase is to better fit the long-range battles that normally took place throughout Miramar.

    • DMR – 29% increase
    • SR – 42% increase
    • Win94 – 30% increase

Vending Machine
  • Already placed some Vending Machines in Miramar and Camp Jackal to bring a brand new looting experience to players instead of commonly collecting items dotted on the floor.
    • From Vending Machines, you can find Painkillers and Energy Drinks
    • You can only get access to Vending Machines in Miramar and Camp Jackal.
      • Vending Machines appear randomly at set areas in Miramar.
        • Areas: Gas stations, Casino, Arenas, Motels, and commercial buildings.

    • If you are in luck, lots of Energy Drinks can be distributed by the Vending Machines at the same time.
  • Vending Machines can be used as cover, but be careful when you do this. Being protected by the top-notch anti-theft technology, dealing damage to the machine may cause your location to be uncovered to the enemy.

Survivor Pass: Badlands

Are you ready for the return of Survivor Pass? Together with PUBG Season 5 Royale Pass, there are brand new PUBG Season 5 Rewards, missions and improved systems brought to you in this Survivor Pass: Badlands. Make sure you will not skip the new community missions that allow players to play together to explore the secret story of Miramar.

Community Mission System

Regardless of buying PUBG Premium Pass or not, all players are able to play together to make the Community accomplishment gauge full. After that, they will receive awesome skin rewards in the game as well as unravel the secret story of Miramar.

Community Mission System

  • By searching for brand new mystery collectibles on the Battlegrounds, you can make the mission gauge full quickly.
    • If you find and unlock special Cardboard boxes, you can loot one of the three discrepant objects.
    • After they have been collected, they will be indicated on the Community Mission accomplishment gauge as follows:
      • Disc piece: This considers as 1 point toward Community Missions Goal
      • Broken disc: This considers as 2 points toward Community Missions Goal
      • Old DVD: This considers as 3 points toward Community Missions Goal
    • In the inventory, you can see the number of discs you already have.

  • Be sure to have a look at your contribution points to the community missions from the community mission tab of Survivor Pass.

Season Missions

  • Melee and Badlands are the two tracks of PUBG Season Missions.
    • Melee Track: The missions that are combined contain 2 missions each (which means 4 missions in total) utilizing melee weapons, gifting 2 melee weapon skins.
    • Badlands Track: The missions that are combined contain 4 missions each (which means 8 missions in total), gifting 2 Miramar related skins

Progression Missions

  • During PUBG Season 5, you will have a chance to gain a great deal of XP by advancing through missions. The Progression Missions contains 3 mission tracks and one track for obtaining some milestones.
    • Track 1, 2: A wide range of 10 missions with difficulty being increased through over time, and they are accessible for all players.
    • Track 3: A wide range of 12 missions with difficulty being increased through over time, and they are only for the ones who bought the Premium Pass.
    • Milestone: Missions for obtaining some achievements in relation to daily, weekly, and challenge missions.

    • Second mission of every track: You have to get the weapon specific missions done while putting on the T-Shirt you have earned from the first mission.
    • Remaining mission in every track: Different weapon specific missions.

New level-up items for Premium pass mission rewards

Survivor Title System

Survivor Title System

With the coming of Survivor Title System Season 5, there will be some alterations to the Survivor Points (SP) system.

  • At the start of PUBG Season 5, players will get rewards for Survivor Title System Season 4
  • There will be a soft reset for SP. Your performance in PUBG Season 4 will also be counted towards your beginning SP in Season 5.
  • Made a rebalance to Survivor Point:
    • Beginner (1 point) ~ Expert (5000 points)
      • There was an increase in the amount of SP earned each match, which helps players increase their titles much easier.
      • No points will be lost in this SP bracket, which is the same as the former season.
    • Survivor (Over 6000 points)
      • For the players of Survivor rank, both kills and placement will be considered. Some of their SP will be lost if their placement is in the bottom 30% overall in a match.
      • You cannot let your SP below 6000.

A note from developers: After paying close attention to the existing system, the developers have come to realize that players could gain Lone Survivor rank by just engaging in a lot of matches, even though they got not-so-good results. Hence, from PUBG Season 5, a brand new system will be added to the game, in which the SP of Survivor or higher ranked players will be reduced in each match they don’t play well. Hopefully, Survivor and Lone Survivor ranks will be better represented as finished titles for the ones who have been playing so hard to get them.

      • This option allows you to respawn on the chosen location after dying. You can pick the location at any time throughout gameplay from the beginning location, or teammate or the taken location.
      • If the chosen taken location becomes vacant, and hence you didn’t choose it, the respawn location automatically switches to the nearest taken location or the starting location.
      • If the chosen teammate gets destroyed and he/she is not selected, the respawn location automatically switches to the starting location.
    • The official PUBG Partners are the only ones that are able to make games using these new presets. This means you can experience the new spawning rules with your preferred PUBG Partners.
