Update 21.2 now officially available on all platforms
01/26/2023 - Following the release of Vikendi Reborn, PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS Update 21.2 from KRAFTON, Inc. is officially available for PC and consoles starting today. With this, players will receive updates for Vikendi, Sanhok, and Taego, as well as an update for the 1v1 Arena in Training Mode.
Below you can find a detailed overview of the main new features that will be introduced with the update 21.2 for PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS.
World updates in Vikendi
Mother Nature is back and is once again wreaking havoc in Vikendi. With update 21.2, players will be exposed to the blizzard zone. Once players enter this zone, they will move slower, take damage every second, and their vision and hearing will be affected. Vehicles will also be harder to control.
In addition to the blizzard zone, there are new places for players to explore: the secret rooms. These are located throughout Vikendi and reward players who have found a security key with various valuable items.
Ready to repair
Exclusive repair kits are now available in Vikendi! Players whose armor, helmet, or vehicle has been damaged during the game can use these sets to repair it. The helmet and armor repair kits fully restore the respective items, while the mechanic toolbox restores 500 health for vehicles and can only be used inside the vehicle.
Supply packs for all
Finally, multi-drops are coming to Vikendi! Similar to Taego, multiple supply packs containing high-value weapons, armor, consumables, and more will be randomly dropped during matches.
World Updates in Sanhok
Based on player feedback, numerous changes have been made to Sanhok. For example, ascent ropes have been added to the cave and rock massif, and players will receive ascent rope attachments as starting items. Additional bridges connecting the northwestern island to the boot camp and ruins have been added to make traveling around the map easier. Also, the water around the ruins has been made deeper to allow players to swim through. Finally, some areas have been filled with sand to make traversing the map easier.
Winning also counts in training
The arena in training mode was introduced in a previous patch for survivors. Now players can prove their superiority over friends or rivals with a winning streak. Victory streaks in the arena will be recorded after the live server update. A draw will not affect the winning streak.
