After PC and mobile, its the turn of Xbox players of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to share in the festive season of Halloween as the new update which is numbered #2 has been released earlier today. The new update brings a slew of things that include Training Mode, new weapons Beryl M762 and MK47 Mutant, new Sanhok-exclusive vehicle Scooter and Tukshai, new BP system and of course Halloween costumes.

Training Mode

The Training Mode is a 2×2 map that will see at least 5 players drop in to try out all the various aspects of the game. Players can’t die in this mode and can hence go all out in whatever they want to do on this map. It comes with an array of zones where players can try out different things like jumping off ramps in vehicles, driving on twisting roads, controlling vehicle speed, driving a boat, driving off road, shooting different guns on different gun ranges, landing with parachute, parkour, using different melee weapons, trying different grenades, and learning how different consumables work.

New Weapon: Beryl M762

Beryl M762 is the newest assault rifle to hit PUBG Xbox and is the only one after AKM to use 7.26mm ammo. It will spawn on all the maps, Erangel, Miramar, and Sanhok, and can load up to 30 rounds (40 with an extended magazine). The Beryl is equipped with upper and lower rails, allowing for scopes and a grip. It has lower per bullet damage than the AKM, but a higher firing rate, which means that is has DPS output and a higher recoil.
