Krafton today announced Update 19.1 for PUBG, which brings back the Haven map with a wide variety of Assassin's Creed-themed items.
PUBG players will be happy to hear that Haven map is returning to the game with the upcoming update 19.1.
Krafton announced the details today, confirming that PUBG Update 19.1 is set to launch on August 10 for PC and August 18 for consoles.
Haven map will be available as soon as the update drops but with an interesting twist. As part of the ongoing collaboration between PUBG and Assassin's Creed , players will be able to discover a variety of themed resources and props on the Haven map, which is available for the first time since Season 16.
Additionally, players will be able to earn Assassin's Creed-themed cosmetic rewards as they play, including costumes, bag skins, a parachute skin and an emote.
As for the new items, the MP9 is the new weapon, Pillar Security Car comes as a new vehicle, Folded Shield is a portable form of cover that can be carried and installed, while Blue Chip Detector can scan for enemies within a 100-metre radius.
Here's a detailed breakdown of everything new in Update 19.1:
- MP9: Available on the Deston map, the MP9 is the first fully-automatic SMG that uses the widely-available and practical 9mm ammo, providing an answer for players who enjoy weapons like the P90 but want something more attainable with lots of ammo. Although it has a slightly lower effective range, fire rate, and damage than the P90, it is an excellent alternative for players who desire more options similar to the P90's playstyle.
- Folded Shield: Running into enemies without proper cover has been a pain point for BATTLEGROUNDS players for years, so a new item is coming in 19.1 to help alleviate these types of issues. Available for players to find on any map, the Folded Shield allows players to carry around a portable form of cover that can easily be carried, installed and hidden behind at your leisure, with a hefty 1500hp that your foes will need to break down before they can hit you.
- Blue Chip Detector: This new Tactical Gear uses up players’ primary weapon slot and allows them to scan for enemies within a 100m radius of their character. The nearest 12 enemies will be displayed as dots on the map, updating with each screen update and playing sounds that only the user can hear as it detects enemy movement. The Blue Chip Detector can even detect height differences, informing players if the tracked target can be found above or below them.
- New Vehicle - Pillar Security Car: With a maximum speed of 130km/h (or about 81mph) and controllable mounted lights and sirens, this new vehicle allows players to recreate fast-paced chase scenes from movies while playing on the Deston map. In addition, high-quality equipment can be found in the vehicle's trunk, so if you see a Pillar Security Car nearby, be sure to hop in for a bonus.
On top of everything listed above, Update 19.1 also brings players adjustments to item spawn rates on jungle map Sanhok, bug fixes for when bots move from water to land, improvements to Basic and AI Training as well as the new ranked Season 19 and Survivor Pass.
