Brand New Map: Akinta

Kicking PUBG New State’s latest update off is the game’s latest original map, Akinta. Players who were a part of the New State Labs team may have already experienced this map and provided feedback on it, but with the September update, all survivors will be able to drop into Akinta.

The map will follow the regular BR ruleset without the level four gear that was seen during Bounty Royale. Traversal on Akinta will also be much smoother than Troi thanks to its faster trams that operate on six lines going from the centre to the outskirts of the map. The addition of an exclusive electric vehicle called the Vcab promises to make things even cooler on Akinta.

Gunplay Updates

v0.9.39 will introduce a new gun called the AK Alfa. It is an assault rifle, in fact, it is touted to have the highest damage per shot compared to the other rifles in New State. The Alfa uses 7.62mm ammo and can be modded with a muzzle, scope, grip, and magazine.

Other weapon changes include a Long Barrel for the Kar98, a reduction in long-range damage for customized SMGs, and a greater muzzle velocity for the S1897. The Grenade Launcher and a few other items like the Poison Grenade received some rebalancing as well.
