How to Get the Mini-14 Gun in PUBG

The new weapon will arrive alongside foggy weather and FPP leaderboards in PUBG.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is getting a new weapon in the September Update, according to an announcement from developer Bluehole. The Mini-14 is a DMR that will not be limited to crate drops, meaning that players will have a much higher chance of finding this weapon while traversing the map in PUBG. 

The patch notes for the September Update have been posted on Steam and the Mini-14 gun is one of its main new features. According to an official PUBG tweet, the Mini-14 “will be available all over the island of Erangel.”

The Mini-14 is a lightweight, semi-automatic marksman rifle that utilizes sniper rifle attachments for both muzzle and magazine slots. The Mini-14 is also the first DMR in PUBG to utilize 5.56mm rounds instead of 7.62mm ammo, giving it better handling at the cost of damage. 

Where to Look for the Mini-14 in PUBG

The Mini-14 is not crate-only, and is available all throughout the island of Erangel.

To get your hands on your own Mini-14 in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, be sure to check all of the best loot areas first. Georgopol, Mylta Power, and Sosnovka Island are great places to look for gun loot in PUBG. Just be aware that other players will have the same idea, so be prepared to encounter more opponents at these locations.

Best Weapon Loot Locations

We recommend checking inside the Gun Range in the north, the Sosnovka Military Base in the south, the shelter and prison near Lipovka to the east, and the hospital in Georgopol to the west for the best chances of finding the Mini-14 gun. This interactive PUBG map illustrates all of the high gun loot locations across Erangel, and can be filtered for other areas of interest as well.

A new town called Kameshki was also added in the September Update, east of Stalber in the northeast corner of the map. Where there once was just a plot of buildings, now stands a new loot opportunity. If you land near the northeast, be sure to loot Kameshki to help increase your odds of finding the Mini-14 in PUBG.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds September Update brings an assortment of changes, including foggy weather and first-person perspective (FPP) leaderboards. Players can try out the update before the patch goes live by joining the PUBG test server. You can read through the full list of changes in the latest PUBG September Update patch notes.
