Just because PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) graduated out of Early Access back in January does not mean that the team at PUBG Corporation are done updating it. One feature that the wildly popular shooter has long needed is finally releasing: there is now a training mode to help you understand the various systems of the battle royale game. A substantial update for PUBG released on September 5, bringing training mode, a few new items, and some quality of life updates. Check out the video for training mode right here:
There are all sorts of things you can practice in training mode, from parachuting to driving to throwing grenades. The training mode supports up to twenty players at a time, rounds can last for up to thirty minutes, and players cannot drop below 1 HP while running around the map – meaning you won’t have to worry about being killed while working on a new skill. Check out the PUBG training map below – it’s 2 km x 2 km, making it pretty quick to move from place to place.
In addition to training mode, the new update added a few other things to PUBG as well. A new vehicle is always exciting, and the strangely shaped Tukshai is now live on the Sanhok map. It seats three people, and looks like a lot of fun to run people over with:
There is also a new gun included in the update, the MK47 Mutant. It uses 7.62 mm bullets and can switch between single shot and two round burst firing modes. It can be found on every map, and can support nearly every attachment. Check out what it can do right here:
Other quality of life elements have been added with the update, including a “mission” mode that allows you to unlock rewards by achieving specific outcomes during matches. Far and away, the training mode is the biggest part of this update, and could really help newbies learn PUBG or veterans looking to take a step to the next level.
