Update 1.35 for PUBG brings in the new Karakin map, complete with desctruction, sticky bombs and the deadly Black Zone. There’s a lot packed into this level, so be sure to check the patch notes below or you may find yourself unexpectedly shot or blown up through a wall. The information below comes directly from PUBG Corp’s update post, we’ve simply reformatted it for easy reading.

New map Karakin added

Karakin is a 2×2 km island off the coast of Northern Africa. It’s an arid, rocky environment that provides wide-open terrain and challenging engagements. It’s small, fast, and dangerous: Expect the tension of Miramar combined with the pace of Sanhok. Karakin is a 64 players map.

Players should expect long distance rifle engagements in the mountains, tactical urban conflict, and claustrophobic underground combat. And with the introduction of the Black Zone, Karakin reveals its twist: a map that’s layout changes every match.

  • Added bullet penetration to our weakest walls in Karakin.
  • Rebalanced loot spawns to improve your overall experience. There’ll now be much more loot to go around for you and your squad.
    • Increased 2x, 3x, 4x scopes
    • Increased healing/boost items above ground
    • Modified ratio of total SR/DMR muzzle attachments due to increased spawn rate of those weapons
    • Decreased number of melee weapons, canted sights and magazine attachments
    • Removed Sawed-off from Karakin

The Black Zone (Karakin only)

  • The Black Zone is designed to push players out of the safety of a building.
  • The hazard is random: towns and compounds can be undamaged, totally flattened, and everything in between.
  • The mix of buildings and ruins evolves in real time throughout the match: Meaning don’t always expect that building you run to for cover to be there late in the match.
  • Remember, if you hear the siren, and you are inside that purple circle on the minimap- evacuate!

New weapon: Sticky Bombs (Karakin only)

  • Certain walls and floors have breach points which can be destroyed with Sticky Bombs
  • This feature presents more tools for our players: For campers, it allows more sight lines/windows to be created
  • For squads going on the offensive however, there are new options for storming buildings- “Do we blast in through the back of the building, or through the roof- maybe both?” the choice is yours!
  • And for explorers, we’ve hidden many secret areas for those players with a spare Sticky Bomb or two, and a keen nose for loot

Gameplay changes

  • Added an option to gameplay settings which allows you to set a second firing mode preference for AR and SMG weapons which have 3 firing modes (Single, Burst, Auto).
    • This will allow you to have burst fire weapons be set to single shot upon equip, while also having other weapons in that category still be automatically set to auto.
    • Selecting auto as first and single as second preference will have weapons without auto fire be automatically set to single fire.

    • Sounds are divided into two, Handgun and non-handgun, and handgun has less trembling or no attachment detailed sounds compared to non-handguns.
  • Vaulting Sounds Improvement
    • Improved detailed expressions on objects such as hand-to-body contact, collar-to-shoulder squeaks, etc. during vaulting
