PUBG: Battlegrounds Patch Notes: Update 14.2

Here are the complete patch notes for PUBG Console Update 14.2 coming out for all supported platforms:


The new Taego weapon Mortar is easy to use in combat situations, but it can take a lot of practice to achieve reasonable accuracy. First, you must calculate the distance to the target and the expected movement path, so calculate carefully. Once you get used to it, it can be helpful to attack behind ridges where grenades can’t reach or when defending specific areas. Also, it can be effective when destroying vehicles. In particular, you can use various strategies in cooperative play, so be sure to use them in battle!

  • Once looted, it takes up a primary slot.
  • Deployment
    • It can only be deployed on flat surfaces.
      • It cannot be deployed on cement, iron, concrete, water, or wooden floors, or inside buildings.

  • Weapon slot: Pistol slot
    • Cannot be used in a vehicle’s driver’s seat.

To improve the survivability of players inside water, we are now supporting DBNO Swimming. Previously a player who enters DBNO while in the water would skip DBNO and instantly die. This made any deep water a hazardous area to traverse. Now a player will instead enter Swimming DBNO, a slow swimming state which gives the player a chance to reach the shore and be revived by teammates. Hopefully, you’ll feel more confident next time you get into a Boat or swim across that river!

  • DBNO Players can swim for at half of the normal speed.
  • The air a player has in their lungs is not reset when entering DBNO, so a player who was drowning will continue to drown in DBNO.
  • In DBNO a player is constantly losing HP. combined with drowning HP loss this means that a DBNO player will die within 10 seconds underwater.
  • Reviving underwater is impossible, and any ongoing revive is canceled when either player goes underwater or moves around too much.
  • It is possible to revive a swimming DBNO player while floating on the water.



We are proud to introduce the Chicken, a new creature that will hopefully amuse many players during fierce combats in Taego! “Chicken? Why the heck?” you might wonder. The answer to this question is left to your imaginations.

  • Three different conditions apply:
    • Calm
      • This is the default state and, at the same time, the most stable emotional state. Calm as a monk, and nothing special.
    • Fear
      • The Chickens fly, not, run for their lives in the following situations.
        • When hearing
          • Punching
          • Footsteps (except prone sound)
          • Gunshots
          • Engine and exhaust sounds
          • Other creatures die
    • Death
      • Sadly, there’s an end to everything. Taego’s amuser also passes away once hit. They take damages from guns and grenades, then turn into fried chicken upon death. Sorry, a bad joke, they go to where we all go.


Five new Taego areas have been added to the Team Deathmatch preset in Custom Matches.

  • Palace
  • Field
  • Market
  • Mountain
  • Shipyard


Improvements have been made to Team Deathmatch Taego areas.

  • With the update, the PUBG account can be linked directly with Krafton ID from the lobby.


Previously, the Career page was used as the profile screen. It was difficult for players to recognize their status at a glance, and it was also challenging to identify which player they were when viewing other players’ profiles. That’s why we want to provide you with a profile overview where you can see at a glance the current state of yourself and other players. Here, you can show off your fashion sense and skin!

  • You can check the summary of your current season stats in “Career” → “Overview”.

  • You can edit emblems, nameplates, character poses, and medals.
  • It may take some time after a match for the stats to be reflected.
