PUBG Update 12

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has just got a huge update bringing along with it a much awaited feature, the ability to choose which map to play. The new update marks the beginning of a new season, and adds a new sniper rifle to the game called SLR and a new muscle car for Mirado. Besides these, there are a lot of new balance changes that have been incorporated in this new update.

The SLR is classified as a DMR or a designated marksman rifle, which has more damage than the SKS but more recoil. A regular magazine holds 10 bullets but, an extended one will hold 20.

The new vehicle added is a muscle car called Mirado, which will seat four players which will be found in an around the cities of Miramar, and is supposed to be the fastest way to traverse the barren highways of the desert map. The servers were down for maintenance today and have now been made live again with a new ranked season, which means that the scores have been reset.

Apart from these the new update also introduces a bunch of new attachments for the game including a duckbill for shotguns, new grips, scopes and the option to change the reticle on the scopes and sights. The full patch notes can be found below.
