PUBG update 18 introduces us to QBU, the Rony and Prime Day exclusive Deadmau5 crate and custom matches for everyone.
PUBG finally has its next big update after introducing Sanhok. The PUBG update 18 has brought a Prime Day exclusive crate from the world renowned EDM artist Deadmau5. The crate is exclusive to PC and Twitch prime subscribers and will be available starting 11.59pm PST today.
We should have seen this coming, as Deadmau5 has been getting chummy with renowned PUBG players Dr Disrespect and Shroud on his Instagram.
Also, the PUBG update 18 brings a new DMR weapon and a vehicle, both of which are exclusive to Sanhok.
New Weapon: QBU
The QBU is a new, Sanhok-exclusive DMR with a standard magazine of 10 rounds of 5.56mm ammo, which can be increased to 20 with an extended magazine.
There is bipod attached to QBU—it will greatly reduce recoil when you shoot while prone.
The QBU replaces the Mini 14 on Sanhok.
New Vehicle: Rony
The Rony is a new pickup truck that can only be found on Sanhok (from the automaker that brought you the Mirado)!
This truck holds up to 4 passengers and excels at moving across Sanhok’s hilly landscapes.
The Rony is one of the larger vehicles on Sanhok, so it can be used for cover as well as transportation.
Custom Match UI
Custom Matches are now available to all the players across Beta and Test servers. There are four game modes available:
Normal mode: Classic battle royale rules—be the last person (or team) standing
Zombie mode: Play as either humans or zombies. Only one faction can win.
War mode: Team deathmatch with respawns. The team with the most points (kills and knocks) wins.
eSports mode: PGI 2018 eSports rule will be applied
For more detailed information on the Custom Match Mode, visit the PUBG Dev Blog.
The new patch is right now on the test severs, and will move onto the live servers after the test period is complete.
