Update 5.2 is now on live servers.
The latest patch of Season 5 gives players a new defensive item for taking the air out of the competition, literally. The Spike Trap is available now and bridge camping will never be the same. There have also been some changes to Vikendi’s buildings and terrain for a better gameplay experience, a new way to point your squad towards victory, and even a new way to experiment with us as we look toward 2020 and beyond.
First up, players can now bring their ambush arsenal up a notch and cover their 6 on a dark desert highway with the all-new Spike Trap. Deploy these spiked surprises in the path of an oncoming vehicle to quickly and effectively burst their tires. Spike Traps spawn across all Battlegrounds, are single use – only affecting a single vehicle each, and cannot be picked up again once placed.
There have been balance changes made to Vikendi to further solidify the snowbound sniperland. First off, a number of buildings have had their windows reduced to provide better cover while inside. Several of Vikendi’s key locations have had minor updates to improve map navigation and match flow.
Players who like to take charge of their squad’s destiny can now utilize the Map Waypoint system. While your map is open, you can select specific areas to place up to four waypoints for your team to follow.
This update also introduces players to PUBG Labs, a place for our developers and fans to collaborate on updates and experiments within the PUBG ecosystem. You can get all the details in our dev letter: Introducing: PUBG Labs. In addition to all of this there have also been a number of bug fixes and several QOL improvements that you can read about more in our patch notes.
Update 5.2 is now live on PC servers and is coming to consoles next week. Plot your course, explore new terrain and cover your tracks with Update 5.2! Your Fight. Your Story. Your Battlegrounds.
