PUBG Update 1.72 Patch Notes Notes

NEW MAP: TAEGO

PUBG began with the iconic 8×8 map Erangel; today, with Update 12.2 we’re excited to release our newest 8×8 map: Taego.

Taego has diverse terrain and environments, with numerous towns, compounds, and unique points of interest across the Battleground. Be on the lookout for wildlife, with flocks of birds reacting to player movement and gunfire, giving you a potential early sign of danger ahead. Comeback BR and the Self AED are two new gameplay features exclusive to Taego, giving players a chance to get back into the fight.

Read on for full details.

  • Taego is available as the Featured Map.
  • Playable in TPP and FPP. 
    • Solo, Duos, and Squads, including 1-man Squad Modes are available.
    • FPP in NA region will support all modes (Solo, Duos, Squads and 1-man Squads). Squads and 1-man Squads will be supported in the EU region.
    • Depending on your region, available modes and perspectives will vary.
  • Up to 100 players.
  • Bots can spawn.
  • Clear weather.
  • No Red Zone.
  • Wildlife: Two friendly bird varieties move throughout Taego, reacting to player movement and gunfire.
  • Taego is available in Custom Matches.

COMEBACK BR

Comeback BR is a Taego exclusive second-chance mechanic allowing players who die during the first Blue Zone phase the chance to drop back into the fight later in the match.

Players who die during the first Blue Zone phase battle it out in the Comeback Arena, a location separate from the main Taego Battleground. Survivors who remain alive long enough in the Comeback Arena are transported by helicopter back to the Taego mainland in phase 3 to resume their fight for the Chicken Dinner.

  • Comeback BR is exclusive to Taego Duo and Squad matches.
  • Players who die before the first Blue Zone phase ends are eligible and will see a timer indicating when Comeback BR begins.
    • At least one Duo or Squad member must be alive on the Battlegrounds for teammates to remain eligible to enter Comeback BR.
  • All eligible participants are sent simultaneously to the Comeback Arena, separate from the main fight, and must find loot and items to stay alive, competing against other survivors.
  • There are no bots or knockdowns in Comeback BR.
  • Survive the timer indicated while fighting in the Comeback Arena, and you’ll be transported back to the Taego mainland via helicopter with all your items and gear to continue your fight for the Chicken Dinner.
  • While health and boost levels are reset upon returning to the fight, your kills and stats are still recorded.

SELF AED

Similar to Comeback BR, the Self AED is another Taego exclusive second-chance mechanic, giving players another opportunity to stay in the fight. The Self AED is a world-loot item that allows players to revive themselves when DBNO, without the need of a teammate, and can be used in Solo, Duo, and Squad matches.

  • Press the interact button or select the Self AED in your inventory to activate the Self AED.
    • Cannot be canceled once started.
    • Cannot be used while already being revived by another teammate.
  • Squads: The Self AED can be used even if your entire Squad is DBNO, as a teammate holding the Self AED prevents your Squad from being immediately eliminated.
    • This gives you chance to self-revive and then revive your teammates.
    • If the whole Squad remains DBNO, you will be eliminated once all players with a Self AED are killed.
  • Solo: Having a Self AED allows you to enter DBNO instead of being instantly killed.
  • Self AED uses are recorded as revives in your stats.

Hyundai’s first concept car, the Pony Coupe, has arrived in PUBG and is exclusive to Taego! Drive Hyundai’s heritage Pony Coupe, featuring an all-wheel drive design for enhanced control across the diverse terrain of the Battlegrounds.

The Pony Coupe design was created by the master of automotive design, Giorgetto Giugiaro, and is a coupe concept car that first premiered at the Turin Motor Show in 1974. The next-generation electric vehicle model IONIQ5 was designed with a lot of inspiration from the Pony Coupe.

ITEM SPAWN INCREASE

Through community feedback, many players have expressed their hopes for an overall increase in item spawns.

    • Erangel increased by 23.9%
    • Miramar increased by 28.3%
    • Sanhok increased by 16.5%
    • Vikendi increased by 28.4%
