New weapons in PUBG 14.2 patch

The new PUBG update adds the Mortar, which is exclusive to the Taego map. Mortar fires a giant projectile that deal a huge chunk of damage, but it needs a fair share of accuracy and skill. Players need to anticipate the position of their enemies to accurately attack using a Mortar. The game will add another new weapon, the M79 smoke grenade launcher.

New gameplay features in PUBG 14.2 patch

The upcoming PUBG update brings chickens to the Taego map. The feathered friends don’t just add more detail to the map, but they also serve as a new gameplay feature. Chickens will start running for their lives if they hear punching, footsteps, gunshots, engines and exhaust sounds, and other creatures dying. In the tactical environment of PUBG, chickens freaking out can give away your position.

Another new gameplay feature is DBNO swimming. Currently, players who go DBNO in water die instantly, but the new update will allow players to swim in the DBNO state. This will improve their chances of survival until a teammate is able to revive them.

Along with these, the new PUBG update adds new Taego locations to the Team Deathmatch preset in Custom Matches including Field, Palace, Mountain, Market, and Shipyard.
