All the relevant information you need to find out regarding this PUBG: Battlegrounds Update 13.2 has been covered in the full release notes below. You should be able to download and install this release directly from Steam, since it is only out for the PC players yet.

PUBG: Battlegrounds Update 13.2 Patch Notes

Here are the official patch notes for PUBG: Battlegrounds Update 13.2 that is now rolling out to all the supported platforms of the game:

New Weapon: P90

In this update, we are adding the fan-favorite P90 SMG to Care Packages. The P90 is our first Care Package SMG since the original Tommy Gun, and as such, we made sure it is a worthy addition. It comes loaded with its own unique 5.7mm High Powered ammo, which is capable of longer-range combat, unlike our other SMGs. It also comes with a Cheek Pad, Handguard, Laser, and Silencer pre-attached and non-detachable.

It also features dual optics that allow for fast switching between close-range and medium-range combat. Use the Holographic Sight for nearby foes and Flip on the Flipsight for added magnification when they make a run for it.

It comes paired with 250 rounds of 5.7mm ammo in the Care Package. A single magazine holds up to 50 rounds which you (and your foes) can see deplete live as you’re firing due to the magazine’s translucent design. With the translucent magazine keeping you aware of the high Rate of Fire and the Laser helping you keep track of your targets, the P90 is a solid addition to your loadout.

  • Spawns on all maps
  • Equipped with all attachments right out of the crate
    • Silencer
    • Laser
    • 50 round magazine
    • Non-detachable small low profile sight with some magnification

Taego Updates

Introducing the new pickup truck, Porter, exclusive on Taego! The Porter is Hyundai Motor Company’s representative commercial truck, which was first introduced in 1977. Since then it has been carrying a lot of loads based on its solid basics and excellent durability. It is the only vehicle on PUBG available with the Trunk System, a new feature to be introduced below. Porter is a truck capable of carrying large loads and up to four passengers at the same time. Get your chicken dinner with the use of Porter which can easily run on any types of terrain with the support of the permanent four-wheel system!

  • Drivetrain: All-Whee Drive
  • Maximum number of passengers: Four
  • Trunk System is available and the capacity is 400
  • Maximum Speed: 130 km/h
  • HP: 1,200 
  • Porter replaces the UAZ

New Feature: Trunk System

With the Trunk System, you can maximize the acquisition of items for victory on Taego. Use the compartment of the Porter to load various items and take them out when needed. If the vehicle gets blown up, all the items in the compartment will also be destroyed. If you desire to keep your items safe, make sure your vehicle is safe!

  • Any item that can be placed in your inventory and weapons, helmets, vests, backpacks can be loaded into the Trunk.
    • However, due to the weight of weapons, helmets, vests, and bags, it may not be possible to load large quantities.
  • Only available on Taego with Porter vehicles.
  • The Trunk system can be accessed with the interaction key when not onboard. When onboard, it can be accessed by opening the inventory. 
  • All items in the compartment will be lost if the vehicle is destroyed. 
  • The compartment of the vehicle does not belong to one person. Anyone can load and take out items. 
  • Item weight depending on their types are as follows.
    • When a weapon with attachments is placed in the trunk, attachment weight is added and loaded into the trunk with attachments attached.

Introducing the Blue Zone Grenade! This throwable item can be used effectively if you want to deal damage in a broader area for a certain period of time. Especially in situations where you want to lure enemies out of a building. The Blue Zone Grenade creates a round blue zone with a maximum radius of ten meters, lasting for five seconds. It maintains its full size for five seconds, then decreases and disappears over another 5 seconds.

  • The blue zone gets as big as ten meters in radius and lasts for five seconds.
  • It remains in its full size for five seconds and then shrinks and disappears for another five seconds.
  • It does not explode underwater.
    • But, when activated near water, it gives damage to players inside the water.
  • Damage: 10/second
  • If you are already in the Blue Zone and are in range of an additional Blue Zone Grenade, additional damage will be applied.
    • Blue Zone + Blue Zone Grenade = Both damages apply
    • Blue Zone Grenade + Blue Zone Grenade = Both damages apply

New WeatherTo maximize the experience on Taego, we are adding the following weather options to Taego. They will be randomly applied. 

  • Sunset
  • Overcast

Blue Zone RebalancingBased on community feedback, we decided that the first phase of the Taego Blue Zone was a bit long. Therefore, we have reduced the duration of the first phase to provide a smoother Taego play experience. Enjoy more dramatic Taego through quicker farming!
Comeback BR ImprovementsSince the introduction of Comeback BR, we have received a lot of feedback about how it could get boring. Therefore, we have made the following changes to encourage fast-paced Comeback BRs. 

  • Blue Zone Changes
    • Now the Bluezone will shrink even more
  • Timeline changes
    • The total time of the Comeback BR has been reduced
    • Players can return to the battlegrounds when the phase two Bluezone starts to shrink
