PUBG Mobile latest update: Karakin map features
• Given the Karakin is a small 2×2 map, which is almost half the size of Sanhok, players are in for a fast-paced battle. Also, players will have limited places to hide, which include large boulders and bunkers, which means players will be needed to keep changing positions.
• Among key features of the Karakin map is the Demolition Zone, which will change the layout with each match. In the Demolition Zone, bombarding will start suddenly after the siren rings. What’s interesting is the players will die even if they are hidden inside the building, which is not the case with red zones in other maps in PUBG Mobile.
• Sticky bombs is another feature to look out for as they can be used to break even walls. So, it makes it unsafe for players to hide behind walls as well.
• In the Karakin map, players will be able to shoot through thin walls as well.
