The most recent addition to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is the newest snow themed map called Vikendi. The new map has been introduced for the PC version right now, and is set to arrive on PUBG Mobile and the PS4 and Xbox soon. Even on the PC, the map is only available on the Test server which is separate from the main game. Also Read - PUBG PC Update 8.2 live on test server with MG3 LMG, Decoy Grenade
The new map is 6×6 km in size which positions it between the larger Erangel and Miramar and the smaller Sanhok map. It comes with a new vehicle called the Snowmobile which is appropriate considering it is essentially a snow covered map where all the vehicles with tires slip and slide. There is a new weapon as well, called the G36C which is an Assault Rifle. Also Read - PUBG Mobile: College student shoots himself after a fight with his family
Now there is a new gameplay trailer released by PUBG for the new Vikendi map which shows off, rather teases what appears to be a new sight, a new SMG and a new time of day for the matches. After some digging we found out that code has been found that says that the new sight being added is called the Canted Sight, the new SMG is PP-19 Bizon which Counter Strike Global Offensive players will be familiar with and the Night time might soon be coming to the game.

Canted sight as shown in the trailer is a sight attachment what will probably allow players to add it to an AR or a DMR along with another scope. This will essentially make it easier for players to use a particular gun in long as well as short range, without having to switch scopes and sights. it looks like a Red Dot sight that is bent to the right.
PP-19 Bizon is an SMG of Russian make that will probably fit into the theme and location of the new Vikendi map. It has a large drum magazine, which Redditors are arguing over whether it will have a 53-round magazine or a 64-round one.
We’re not really sure if this will be a selectable mode or be random like on PUBG Mobile, but the look and feel of it in the gameplay trailer sure makes it exciting. The nighttime on Vikendi shows off a full moon night which makes sure that the map is not totally dark, and the sky looks even more exciting with the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis highlighting it.
