PUBG Mobile has introduced the highly anticipated Karakin Map in today's update. Along with the new map, it also brings the new Panzerfaust rocket launcher and Sticky Bombs alongside improved game mechanics.
As mentioned in a previous announcement, the update will add the brand new Demolition Zone and Thin Wall Bullet Penetration mechanics, adding a bit more strategy to the gameplay.
The newly released map, Karakin can host 64 players at a time and is basically a combination of Sanhok and Miramar’s various elements. Note that, the map of Vikendi will not be playable in classic mode for a short period of time, but players can still host custom rooms on it.
This update in PUBG Mobile focuses on improving and promoting a better indoor combat experience for the players, with features like bullets penetrating the walls in certain locations in Karakin.
