PUBG Labs' first experiment in 2021 promises to be a fun one, as the dev is introducing a new attachment, Thermal Scope, and perfect weather setting to try it out.
We'd normally mention that not everyone may find Thermal Scopes fun, especially those on the receiving end of one with a sniper underneath it, but this is PUBG's testing grounds, so yeah - you were asking for it.
As you can see from the image above, we're talking about the portable type of thermal detection, so no heat maps or anything.
"Unlike existing telescopic sights, the Thermal Scope detects infrared rays emitted by objects and makes them stand out against their backgrounds. Thanks to this new equipment, players are now able to better detect enemies obscured by darkness, smoke, or trees and bushes, which can be difficult with the existing scopes", the dev explained.
Thermal Scopes will be available to PUBG Labs players from January 7, 2:00pm KST (05:00am UTC) to January 11, 4:00pm KST (07:00am UTC. And everyone gets to participate as PUBG Corp wrote that the scopes will be available on PC and consoles.
To make the attachment's introduction even more impactful, the dev is bringing back a special weather setting - moonlight.
PUBG Labs players hopping into the game during the above period can expect the following:
- Vikendi - Moonlight
- BR Rules of the existing world will be applied
- FPP or TPP, Squad mode
- 1-man Squad mode is also available
- Maximum number of players: 100
- If a session lacks players after a certain amount of time, it will start to fill remaining slots with bots
