PUBG Mobile has finally added Karakin, one of the most popular maps in the original PUBG. The map with a desert theme is compact and focuses strongly on verticality. In addition to the new 64-player map, the recent update to Panzerfaust adds rocket launchers and sticky bombs to your arsenal.
The update also introduces a modified version of the original PUBG’s “red zone” mechanic. Called “Demolition Zones”, players must watch out for purple parts of the minimap, because they can be blown up. These demolition zones also cause damage to buildings, which means they can destroy the precious looting inside before you can claim it.
The update also adds mechanisms for the penetration of bullets into Karakin, which means that certain weapons can shoot through the thin walls of the map. This new update closely follows the heels of the 1
PUBG Mobile Karakin launch notes
- New Mechanic: Demolition Zone – If you are in a purple area on the Mini Map when the alarm sounds, start running! Demolition Zone causes accidental damage to buildings and can eventually destroy them and everything inside.
- New Mechanic: Thin Wall Bullet Penetration – Bullet penetration has been added to the thinnest walls in Karakin, adding a new strategic layer or danger to players hiding behind broken walls.
- New throwable weapon: The Sticky Bomb – these self-adhesive throw boxes stick to the walls and can blow them up, creating destroyed buildings with new shooting angles and breaking points, which means players can get creative when attacking buildings. Sticky Bombs are also the key to finding hidden spaces in Karakin.
- New firearm: Panzerfaust – A disposable weapon that spawns randomly and is a solid fall from air droplets in Karakin, Panzerfaust distributes rockets that explode on impact, injuring players within the blast zone. Rockets can also damage thin walls and penetrate objects at short distances. Make sure there are no friendly matches behind you, as Panzerfaust’s powerful blowback hurts all players nearby.
