A new update went live early this week in PUBG: Battlegrounds. One of the new things introduced was Aim/Sound Lab under Training Mode. As the name implies, it’s a way for players to practice aiming and sound play. Each practice session has a time limit of 1 minute though players can leave the session any time.

For Aim Practice, the details are:

  • Players choose their weapon through the weapon selection window, interact with the start button, and then begin practicing after a 5-second countdown.
  • Human figure-shaped targets randomly spawn. The targets first start out flat on the ground, then 3 to 7 random targets come up simultaneously for players to shoot.
  • ​Once a practice session is over, the number of headshots and the total number of hit targets are shown on the screen.

For Sound Practice, details are:

  • Players begin with a basic Deagle and a red dot sight.
  • Various sounds of primary weapons ranging from 15m to 300m are randomly played on targets.
  • The weapon name and distance of the gunshot are shown on the screen.
  • Once the player shoots the correct target, the target falls back and then comes back up right away.
  • A kill message tells players what type of weapon the gunshot was from pops up on the screen.
  • Players earn 10 points for shooting the correct target, 5 for the targets on either side of the correct one, and 0 for the rest.
  • There are different sound effects for each separate score that can be earned.
  • The identical gunshot moves between different targets every 5 seconds until the player shoots a target. The total score shows up on the screen once a practice session is over.

Layout Rearrangement

In addition to the new practice modes, the general layout of Training Mode has been shuffled up. This is to accommodate the new features and practice areas released with the update. Changes include:

  • A Vehicle Display Booth displaying the three most recently added vehicles has been added.
  • An Item Display Booth displaying the three most recently added items has been added.
  • A vehicle shooting range with targets moving at the same speed as vehicles has been added.
  • The current warehouse holding the guns and attachments has been removed to enhance the mode’s performance. Use the convenient Training Helper to summon weapons and items anytime and anywhere.
  • ​Dirt Bikes now spawn instead of Scooters.
  • Due to the rearrangement of Training Mode, Camp Jackal has been removed from Warmode in Custom Matches.
