The PUBG training mode will feature a 2×2 map with ramps, shooting ranges, a river and more.
PUBG is a tough game. It is especially tough for players who are just starting out. It has a lot of weapons, and knowing each weapon takes time. A lot of players, even those who have been playing for years, have had a tough time figuring them out and so they have been asking for a PUBG training mode.
In an announcement on Steam, Bluehole said that a PUBG training mode is in development. The announcement said that “the PUBG Training Mode lets 5-20 players (solo queue with matchmaking) explore a brand new 2×2 km map and practice all aspects of PUBG, from driving the game’s various vehicles around the island’s racetracks to practicing parachute landings on scattered targets to mastering the perfect peek shot. There are even areas to practice vaulting, close-quarters combat, and of course, sweet vehicle jumps.”
It will have a firing range, with targets at the ranges of 800m, 400m, and a special 1km rage target. There will also be a free target range with moving targets. Players will also be able to practice parachute landing. There will also be an area for close quarter combat with an indoor CQC range and a CQC course.
But firing and shooting isn’t all that will be there

Dave Curd, World Team Lead, PUBG Madison, said:
“When we kicked this project off, our goal was for this map to serve all of our players:
New players should be able to understand the basics of navigation, looting, shooting, driving, and parachuting.
Casual players should have fun experimenting in our expansive playground environment- stunt driving, boat racing, and exploring the island to find all its locations.
More serious players should enjoy learning about deeper gunplay- how the attachments, scopes, recoil, zeroing, and bullet-drop influence their shots.”
Dave Osei, Senior Designer, PUBG Madison said:
“We wanted to go beyond what players were asking for, so we didn’t want the map to be just a shooting range, but an open, living map where players can test a variety of skills to their heart’s content.”
The team is targeting a launch in September for the PUBG training mode.
