PUBG Is Getting a New Map
PUBG is getting a new map with Update 18.2. It will bring Deston which will be available as a Feature Map and playable in both FPP and TPP. It is worth noting, however, that its available modes may vary per region. Still, Solo, Duos, and Squads are going to be accessible for most.
PUBG’s upcoming update is arriving on PC versions on July 12th. Console versions are getting it between July 20th and July 21st. The new map’s areas are going to be the Arena, Swamp, Hydroelectric Dam, Concert, Assembly, and Ripton. Plus, some of the areas in the map will only be accessible to Drones.
Ripton will feature a sparkling city that is submerged in water. This is the area where PUBG players get to see Deston’s tallest towers. Moreover, the new map is also going to have two new Map Utility Items, namely the Utility Parachute and the Ascender Attachment.
These special items will trigger in-game interactions that will allow PUBG players to travel through the map. They can find these items in their inventory after entering the Deston map. Unfortunately, they can neither swap nor drop these items from their stash. They do not affect inventory weight at all. They will also have their own slot. Plus, players can use them for as many times as they would like.
With the arrival of Deston, PUBG players will get access to Security Keys and Fuel Pumps. They can use these features for unlocking security doors. Unlike the abovementioned items, Security Keys are single-use items that are stacked in the inventory.
Fuel Pumps, on the other hand, can be found all throughout the map. They are used for refueling vehicles. The good news is that there is no limit to the number of times players can use them. However, only the driver of the vehicle can interact with them.\
