PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS Update 18.2 Adds New Map and Multiple New Features


PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS recently received a new update that added a new map, new features, and much more.

New Map

This update brings the game’s ninth map called Deston. It’s an 8x8 kilometer-sized map with a near-future ravaged theme. The map has a lot to offer from a flooded downtown with one of the tallest skyscrapers to other natural places like mountains and islands.

There are some points of interest on the map, such as:

  • Ripton
  • Swamp
  • Concert
  • Hydroelectric Dam
  • Assembly
  • Arena

New Feature

The developers added Fuel Pumps into the game in this update. Have you ever been on a chase or tried running away from enemies to only run out of gas? Well, now you can avoid it by refueling your vehicle in the Fuel Pump. These pumps will only be available in Deston, and they can also be used for killing enemies. Dealing damage to the health of these pumps will cause them to explode.

Refilling gas can leave you vulnerable, so make sure there aren’t enemies nearby or you'll be in trouble.
