The new version 1.3 update to the world’s most popular mobile game jets players to Karakin and introduces powerful explosive weapons and mechanics
The highly anticipated Karakin Map has landed in PUBG MOBILE in the latest content update, which introduces all-new gameplay mechanics and weapons promising explosive action on the arid rock-filled coast. This compact, tension-filled map also introduces the new devastating Panzerfaust rocket launcher and Sticky Bombs. The arsenal is complemented by the new Demolition Mode and Thin Wall Bullet Penetration mechanics, letting players destroy entire areas of the map, adding an exciting new layer of strategic gameplay. The PUBG MOBILE Version 1.3 content update is available now for free via the App Store and Google Play Store.
Combining Miramar’s tension with Sanhok’s fast-paced gameplay, Karakin is a compact and thrilling map for 64 players which will deliver constant challenges to PUBG MOBILE fans. Offering a variety of areas to wage combat, and plenty of secret areas to discover, players will experience long-ranged rifle battles in the mountains, strategic combat in the cities, and tension-filled gunfights in the dark underground. The new Demolition Zone also adds a fresh layer of excitement to gameplay. Represented by a purple zone on the map, the new mechanic can demolish entire buildings in real-time, driving players out into the open.
For the first time in PUBG MOBILE, thin walls in locations throughout Karakin can be penetrated by bullets. This will significantly enhance the indoor fighting experience. The new Panzerfaust and Sticky Bomb weapons are designed to take full advantage of these new mechanics, meaning no two games will ever be the same.
Key features launching with the Karakin Map:
- New Mechanic: Demolition Zone – If you find yourself in a purple area on the Mini-map when the alarm sounds, start running! The Demolition Zone causes random damage to buildings, and can ultimately destroy them and everything inside.
- New Mechanic: Thin Wall Bullet Penetration – bullet penetration has been added to the thinnest walls in Karakin, adding a new strategic layer or danger for players hiding behind damaged walls.
- New Throwable Weapon: The Sticky Bomb – these adhesive throwables stick to walls and can blow them up, creating broken buildings with new shooting angles and breach points, meaning players can get creative when attacking buildings. Sticky Bombs are also the key to finding hidden spaces in Karakin.
- New Firearm: The Panzerfaust – A single-use weapon that spawns randomly and is a fixed drop from air drops in Karakin, the Panzerfaust deploys rockets that explode on impact, dealing damage to players within the blast zone. The rockets can also damage thin walls and penetrate objects at short distances. Make sure there are no friendlies behind you, as the Panzerfaust’s powerful blowback damages all nearby players.
The Vikendi Map will be temporarily removed from Classic Mode in PUBG MOBILE as Karakin is released. Players can still enjoy Vikendi by creating a custom room.
The launch of the Karakin Map is the newest feature added to the PUBG MOBILE Version 1.3 update that launched on March 9th, bringing more weapons, vehicles, and mechanics to the game. The update also introduced PUBG MOBILE’s Royale Pass 18 with the “HUNDRED RHYTHMS” music-themed gameplay mode and a ton of new content. The mode was celebrated with a collaboration with three world-renowned DJs for PUBG MOBILE’s three-year anniversary in March. The DJs included were Stockholm-based dance music producer Alesso, Belgian musician Lost Frequencies and Dutch-Moroccan DJ and producer R3HAB. Stay tuned for more details about upcoming PUBG MOBILE content, including Royale Pass Season 19.
