Rejoice. The PUBG Season 6 Patch is here. As of yesterday, Season 6 of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is now underway, on an official basis. And so, those playing PUBG on PC can experience the latest update, known as 6.1, right this second, by downloading via the games live servers. Unfortunately, though, console-goers must wait until January 30, before getting hands-on with the new patch.

But what's the meteoric fuss all about, anyway? Besides, isn't this the 6th major patch so far?

Well, thankfully, players can expect a fresh batch of new, innovative additions this time around. Meaning, there's a plethora of things to get excited about with the release of Season 6.

So, without further delay, let's dive straight into this. Suffice to say, I very much hope you enjoy our comprehensive breakdown of PUBG's Season 6 Patch Update. Along with everything it entails.

Let's lock, stock, and load, it's time to shift out on the double.



Firstly, let's begin with the most significant announcement to coincide with PUBG's latest patch update. PUBG's Season 6 Patch features a brand-new map, entitled Karakin. Though smaller than previous player playgrounds, Karakin can host up to 64 players at a time.

Situated off the North African Coast portion of the map, Karakin's, varied level structure, allows for greater versatility from a tactical front, with expansive open areas, but also cramped subterranean conditions. This subtle variation to terrain, both above and below ground, creates new and improved choke points, perfect for cranking up that kill ratio.

 

Also, it's far, smaller size, at least comparatively, makes the action much more frantic and fast-paced, leading to high stakes scenarios at every turn. At least, that's the idea, in theory.

But that's not all. The inclusion of Karakin also brings an all-new environmental effect. These high-impact events, known as Black Zones, are found predominantly in rocky and sandy areas and hold the ability to flip a match on its head. Often, leveling out entire regions, in the process.

 

On top of that, these targeted incendiary attacks are random, resulting in a series of unprecedented changes to the map design, each time — cool stuff, indeed. So, just a heads up. If by some chance, you happen to see a purple circle, hovering over you on the mini-map, it's probably time to bounce out of their sharpish and make a daring getaway.

 

Next up, we have some additional useable items for you, folks. Besides, we couldn't let you wander home empty-handed now, could we? Exclusive to the PUBG Season 6 Patch, the sticky bomb allows players to breach outer walls and other entry points, allowing for speedier traversal.

Better still, you'll be able to sneak up on an unsuspecting enemy, like never. Elsewhere in the PUBG Season 6 Patch, we have the aerial glider vehicle. This motor-powered feat of engineering is a blast to play. All while adding an element of verticality into the mix. Plus, dropping bullets from above, with a chum, and carpet-bombing foes from the comfort of the skies is simply a joy.

 

In truth, the PUBG Season 6 Patch includes a myriad of subtle changes, alterations, and game fixes. By clicking the link, you'll discover more on the much-hyped Survival Pass. Alternatively, you can gain top intel as to the various sound tweaks and gameplay tinkerings. You're welcome, friends, it's what we do.
