PUBG: Players Can Brag About Their Arena Win Streaks in Update 21.2

Update 21.2
Update 21.2 PUBG Corporation

PUBG is a highly competitive battle royale shooter with tons of maps and plenty of guns to choose from. Players always try to beat each other using a combination of different weapons and tactics to see who comes on top, and this is true even in the 1v1 arena in Training Mode.

In the upcoming Update 21.2, winning streaks at the 1v1 arena will be recorded and shown in several areas of the UI, including:

  • Lower left of your screen during a 1v1 Arena match
  • Below your nickname on every Round Finished screen
  • Below your nickname on the Match Finished screen
  • Top of spectator’s screens

It goes without saying that losing even a single match resets the winning streak to zero. But what happens if the match ends in a tie? Don’t worry, the player’s streak is safe in this situation.

PUBG Update 21.2 is also going to bring performance improvements, particularly in loading speeds and memory usage.

Here are the other improvements and bug fixes:

  • Map-related UI has been added to Normal Matches and Ranked.
    • The name of the map you’re playing will show on the screen once you enter the starting island.
    • Map name, mode, and perspective information have been added to the top left screen of the world map.
    • This information will be removed once you board the plane.
