PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS feature 3

PUBG Update 5.2 is now available for download, adds Spike Trap, brings Vikendi updates and more

PUBG Corporation has just released PC Update 5.2 for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. This new update brings the new essential vehicle stopper, the Spike Trap, some changes to Vikendi’s buildings and terrain, a new way to point your squad towards victory, and more.

First up, players can now take their bridge camp to the next level or cover their escape on long narrow roads with the all-new Spike Trap. Players can deploy these spiked surprises in the path of an oncoming vehicle to quickly and effectively burst their tires. Moreover, spike traps spawn across all Battlegrounds. These traps only affect a single vehicle each, and cannot be picked up again once placed.

Furthermore, the snowy slopes of Vikendi are getting some updates. Several of Vikendi’s key locations have had some updates to improve map navigation and match flow. The patch also removes or replaces some buildings to improve gameplay.

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.

Update 5.2 is now live on PC servers and is coming to consoles next week. You can find its complete changelog here.
