PUBG’s season 6 is upon us (don’t worry, I’ve lost track too), and with it PUBG Corp is introducing a significant amount of new content. This includes a new map and weapons – at the cost of saying goodbye to Vikendi for a while, as the map has been temporarily removed from public matchmaking.
According to the patch notes, new map Karakin is a small 2x2km island providing “the tension of Miramar combined with the pace of Sanhok” for 64 players at a time. There’s a mixture of long-range sniping in the mountains, tense urban combat, and claustrophobic underground scuffles to keep players on their toes.
A couple of features make this map stand out from the crowd: the first being sticky bombs – a throwable which can be used on breach points to root out campers. Equally, campers can use them to create windows, while explorers may find them useful in discovering the map’s secret areas. A little something for everyone.
