New Throwable: Decoy Grenade
Disorient your enemies and cover your movements with the new Decoy Grenade. Available as world loot on Sanhok, the Decoy Grenade will make fake firing sounds for about 10 seconds after thrown, giving you a few moments to make your move.
Weapon Remodel and Retexture
M416, SKS and Kar98k has been remodeled from scratch to improve their visual quality. Along with their visual update, firing sounds of these weapons have also been overhauled. C4 has been added to Care Packages on all maps, except Karakin.
Four new docks have been added to the Erangel map. Two docks have been added to existing wharves, one at Novorepnoye and the other at Ferry Pier. The southern beaches of the Erangel mainland and Sosnovka Island have also had docks added.
Throwables Wheel Menu Improvements
The Throwables Wheel has been updated to better facilitate multiple recent additions to the PUBG throwable arsenal. The wheel now has 6 slots and allows access to all throwables.
Helmet Hide Function
Sometimes you just want to appear with that cool hood. For those moments, you can now toggle off your helmet to maintain your default costume pieces, even after you protect your noggin with a fine Level 3 helmet. This functionality is purely cosmetic, and other players will still see you with a helmet on.
