All of them will make your experiences much better. There are plenty of new community missions letting you play together to discover the mysteries of Miramar.

Community Mission System

Whether you have bought PUBG Premium Pass or not, you can always stick with other friends to fill up the Community accomplishment gauge. Then, you will be awarded a lot of skins and even uncover the mysteries of Miramar.

Community Mission System
  • You can fill the mission gauge fast if you go find new mystery collectibles dispersed on the Battlegrounds.
    • Once you have found and opened special Cardboard boxes, feel free to grab one of the three different objects.
    • After picking them up, you will see them on the Community Mission accomplishment gauge like this:

    • Badlands Track: The merged missions have 4 missions each (that means 8 missions in total), and you will get 2 Miramar related skins.

Progression Missions

  • When you gradually progress through missions during PUBG Season 5, you will earn a lot of XP. PUBG Progression Missions have 3 mission tracks and one track for achieving milestones.
    • Track 1, 2: There are 10 missions that have difficulty growing through over time. All players can engage in these missions.

    • Remaining mission in every track: Diverse weapon specific missions.

Awesome level-up items for Premium pass mission rewards

Survivor Title System

Survivor Title System

Survivor Title System Season 5 is coming, which means players will experience new changes to the Survivor Points (SP) system.

  • When PUBG Season 5 commences, you will earn rewards for Survivor Title System Season 4.
  • SP will undergo a soft reset. The performance you had in PUBG Season will be applied to your starting SP in Season 5.

    • Beginner (1 point) ~ Expert (5000 points)
      • To help players grow their titles easily, the amount of SP earned from every match was grown.
      • Your points will be safe in this SP bracket, just like the former season.
    • Survivor (Over 6000 points)
      • Both kills and placement of the players of Survivor Rank will be taken into consideration. If their rank is in the bottom 30% overall in a match, a certain amount of their SP will be deducted.
      • Make sure your SP will not be under 6000.

A message from the PUBG development team: After the developers have noticed the current system, they figure out that players could earn Lone Survivor rank by simply partaking in many matches, even though their results were not good. Because of that, the PUBG game will now have a new system from season 5, in which the SP of common players or higher-ranked players will be deducted in the matches with poor results. The developers hope that this system will better act for Survivor and Lone Survivor ranks as accomplished titles for the ones who have been trying so hard to achieve them.

New updates for Gameplay

Win94 is back

New Updates For Gameplay

    • Pan: This melee weapon can be tossed a maximum of 30m, much shorter than the first ones. The damage range will minimize from 90 to 40 depending on the distance.
  • If you want to deal the most damage to enemies, try to assault them within 15m. From a 15-30/40 distance, the damage dished out will begin reducing.

War Mode (Platoon battle option) and War Mode: Conquest now feature ground respawn

No movement path or front line made for PUBG War Mode (Platoon battle option) and War Mode: Conquest, even though the modes are 1:1 matches between two teams. Due to the difficulty of playing with tactics after jumping out from the plane, an option was created to let players descend on the ground easily without the need of parachutes. In addition, they can enter the battle again after getting killed.

  • You can re-enter the ground by default if you choose “Platoon Battle” in the battle scale options.
  • There are 4 options for the types of respawn, such as the primary air-dropping option, and three other newly-added options, like:
    • Death location
      • You can re-enter on the location doe died after a time
    • Starting location
      • You can re-enter on the preset starting location after a time dying.
    • Chosen respawning location
      • You can re-enter on the selected location after meeting your doom. Pick the location anytime you want during gameplay from the beginning area, or teammate, or the taken area.
      • If the selected taken location is empty, which means you didn’t select it, the respawn location will auto change to the nearest taken location or the beginning location.
      • If the selected teammate is killed and you don’t choose him/her, the respawn location will auto change to the starting location.
    • Only the official PUBG Partners can create games using these new presets. This allows you to enjoy wonderful spawning rules with the PUBG Partners you like.
  • Feel free to set the respawn time at your own taste in the option.
