PUBG Mobile Patch Notes: Version 2.2

New Map – Nusa
A 1×1 km map for fast-paced matches!
Availability: 9/15 at 2:00 (UTC+0)
Playable in Ranked and Unranked Mode
Nusa is a new 1×1 km tourist island map set in the tropics. With abundant supplies, players can start fighting right after you land and get that chicken dinner with ease!
Nusa is teeming with beautiful sights and interesting gameplay for you to experience. This will soon be your favorite hotspot to show off to your friends. It’s worth checking out and exploring!
Launch of New Mechanics, Weapons, and Vehicles!
- New Mechanic: Special Recall
If you are defeated within the first 4 minutes of the match but still have surviving teammates, you will be able to respawn once and quickly jump back into the battleground with a random weapon. (Super Recall activates automatically when playing solo, without the need of teammates)
- New Mechanic: Zipline
Many ziplines have been built at specific locations on Nusa. Just approach a zipline to use it and move around quickly.
Note that ziplines are very fragile and are easily damaged! So use them at your own discretion. The new Tactical Crossbow can be used to repair ziplines. So be sure to carry one for peace of mind.
- New Mechanic: Elevator
An elevator has been installed in every hotel of Telepak Town. Use it to move between floors. Not only can it help you save energy, it can also be used to flank enemies tactically with your teammates.
- New Weapon: Tactical Crossbow
Tactical Crossbow can shoot a rope to repair ziplines, or use flaming bolts to set certain buildings on fire.
- New Weapon: NS2000 Shotgun
A weapon that shoots accurately at medium and short-range. It shoots 12 gauge shells when firing from the hip and 12 gauge slugs while aiming down sights.
- New Vehicle: Quad
A light and nimble 2-seater vehicle that can be used to move quickly through undulating terrain while retaining excellent stability and does not flip over easily.
It’s perfect for going on a ride to sightsee around Nusa with a friend while moving across treacherous terrain quickly.
Apart from that, there’s still lots of hidden gameplay, such as PvE battles, Beach Balls, combustible buildings, destructible water jars, and more for you to explore.
An all new map packed with new experiences that shouldn’t be missed!
