PUBG New State’s August update features a new weapon – the Lynx AMR, a new SR weapon that uses .50 BMG ammo. It is the highest damage dealing SR and can penetrate vehicles as well. It can be found in care packages and in the armoury in Chester, Troi. Other weapon changes include the S1897 which now uses Slug ammo that provides higher damage with lesser projectiles for precise targeting. The S12K receive an Extended Mag and the Mk47 can be attached with a grenade launcher.
