PUBG Mobile 2022 New Map Information
PUBG Mobile itself has 5 maps and added Karakin to a total of 6 maps. The maps are:
- Erangel 8×8
- Miramar 8×8
- Vikendi 6×6
- Sanhok 4×4
- Livik 2×2
- Karakin 2×2
The main highlight of this beta version is the Karakin map. This new map is similar to another desert map, Miramar, but faster.
As per the developer’s own words at quick paced, this arena will combine the ‘”suspension of Miramar and the fast-paced gameplay of Sanhok.”
This will only show the 64 player lobby instead of the usual 100. In addition, Karakin provides new features such as Smuggle Tunnels and Sticky Bombs, which explode on the walls of buildings when placed on them.
Demolition Zones / Purple Zone is a more lethal version of Red Zone, and along with other additions, adds to the fun and gives a new dimension to gameplay.
The beta also includes a new firearm called the Mosin Nagant Sniper Rifle, which uses 7.62mm ammo. And a 2-seater flying vehicle called the Motor Glider.
In addition to the Karakin map, PUBG Mobile’s 1.3.0 beta has also introduced a new weapon, the Panzerfaust. Other weapons are also in beta.
When will it be released on the Original Server?
The release date for patch 1.3.0 on the original server is not yet known. However, it is possible that it will be released together with season 18 of the game. Season 17 itself is scheduled to end on March 21.
For the Karakin map itself, it was originally going to be revealed during the PMGC 2022 Final. However, because three players tested positive for COVID-19, Tencent changed its schedule and was transferred only online. Tencent also did not reveal the new PUBG Mobile 2022 map during the tournament.
It will be interesting to see if Karakin enters the PUBG Mobile esports scene. If so, it will be interesting to see how players adapt to this new map.
