14.1 Highlights

Taego Updates

Taego World Improvements

Since the introduction of Taego, we have been continuously analyzing the play history to collect information about the overly advantageous areas on the map. As a result, we discovered that some regions of Taego have a relatively high win rate compared to others. After checking the win rate of the most popular combat zones, objects and terrain improvements were made for the areas with a win rate of 75% or more.

  • Improvements
    • Added cover to the mountain area north of the Palace and the river area east of the Terminal.
      • Fixed field of view, bends, and cover for areas where terrain composition is difficult to overcome.
    • Improved the cliff topography in the north of Buk San Sa area.
      • Corrected the height of the cliffside terrain, which was considered to be OP.
    • Reorganization of the topography around the School area.
      • After removing the surrounding trees, added fields.
    • Covers and hills have been reorganized.
      • Terrain improvements in some coastal areas.
        • Redline: Corrected the cliff topography of the entire coast.
        • Blueline: Removed rocks located around the lighthouse.
    • Some mountain/river areas:
      • Green area: Added trees to the hillside.
      • Magenta Zone: Added flat terrain curves.
      • Sky Blue Zones: Added cover for areas that lack cover.

Error Space

The Taego has been the most played map by players since its release. There are many reasons, but we believe its popularity comes from the Taego exclusive features. However, some items cannot be acquired on Taego. In the Error Space, other map-exclusive weapons and supplies are spawned. Error Spaces are displayed on the minimap until the end of the match. Head to the Error Space before the match ends and loot!

  • Game Modes
    • Normal Match
    • Ranked
    • Custom Match
      • Players can set the number of Error Spaces
      • Players can set the spawning probability of Error Spaces

Breakable Pot

Various items are placed in Breakable Pots that are placed all over the map. Break the pot to loot multiple items inside and lead the match to victory. However, be aware that the sound of breaking the pot may expose your location to enemies. You may break the pot by punching it, but a few shots with your gun can come in handy.

  • Game Modes
    • Normal Match
    • Ranked
    • Custom Match
  • Spawned Items
    • Medical Items
      • First Aid Kit
      • Bandage
    • Boost Items 
      • Adrenaline Syringe
      • Painkillers
      • Energy Drink
    • Throwables
      • Frag Grenade
      • Smoke Grenade
      • Stun Grenade
      • Molotov Cocktail

Comeback BR and UI Improvements

We received much feedback on the inconvenient situations that players experienced while waiting for Comeback BR. Therefore, to provide a better overall experience, we have made the following improvements.

  • UI Improvements
    • A warning message will be displayed when trying to leave while spectating Comeback BR.
    • If you die while being able to participate in Comeback BR, “Exit to lobby” button will be disabled for three seconds.
    • A timer that indicates the time left until the start of Comeback BR will be displayed.
    • Comeback BR team UI improvements
      • Nicknames are now displayed brighter for squadmates who are waiting for Comeback BR to begin.

Vehicle Balance Updates

We gave high low-end torque and excellent stability in consideration of the rugged and mountainous terrains of Taego for its exclusive vehicles. Also, Taego is very difficult to travel without a vehicle. So we have high top max speeds to prevent them from being destroyed easily from attacks. However, we have listened to the voices of our community saying the top speeds were too fast, so we have reduced the top speeds of the vehicles.

  • Pony Coupe
    • Normal: Reduced from 140km/h to under 130km/h.
    • Boost: Reduced from 150km/h to under 140km/h. 
  • Porter
    • Normal: No changes are applied.
    • Boost: Reduced from 130km/h to under 120km/h.

Ranked Ruleset

  • Leaver Penalty
    • The leaver penalty should be applied for players who have died and are qualified for the Comeback BR but choose to leave the match without waiting for the Comeback BR to begin.
    • Leaver penalty is applied when leaving match during Comeback BR

Erangel Updates


An update has been made to Pochinki, one of the most popular drop points for dropping on Erangel. Until now, it was challenging to escape from Pochinki after early match combat without a vehicle. Also, the surrounding area was made up of fields, which made it easy for the enemies to find you. The following updates have been made to address these difficulties. Last but not least, the quality of the terrain around the map has been improved.

  • Pochinki Church Renewal 
    • In order to balance with the surrounding two or three-story buildings, we have blocked the church rooftop play.
    • Added a secret room in the basement of the church where items are spawned. This room can be accessed without a key. 
  • Updated Terrain Around Pochinki
    • Added waterway.
    • Added cover.
    • Added fences.
    • Fixed terrain height. 
  • Improved Pochinki Terrain Quality.

Halloween Updates

Trick or treat! It’s that season of the year again. To maximize the Halloween vibes, we have finished decorating some parts of Erangel. Knock on the door and shout out trick or treat!

  • School, Hospital, and the Starting island area have been decorated with the Halloween concept.
  • Halloween-themed weather, with unique moon color and fog in certain areas, is added.
    • Game Modes
      • Normal match
      • Custom match
    • Weather Probability

      • Flaregun supply crates are not included.
  • Placed Mummy Coffins at School, Hospital, and the Starting Island.

New Feature: Carry

Making its way to the Battlegrounds this update is the new Carry feature. Be the hero your team deserves by risking it all to carry an ally to safety or take a downed enemy on the adventure of a lifetime – before they bleed out, that is. 

There are pros and cons to picking up a downed player. For one, they’ll serve as a sort of human shield, guarding you against some incoming fire (pro for you, con for them…), but in return, you will not be able to sprint, jump, crouch, prone or hurdle, so make sure you choose your rescue route carefully. You can still fire while carrying a player, but your options are reduced to hip fire only. As for the carried player themselves, their bleed out time will be lowered, and they’ll also be able to spot for you, though their visibility will be limited to whichever way you turn them.

  • Available on all maps.
  • You may pick up any downed player (friend or foe) that is not currently self-reviving or being revived.
  • While carrying a player, the following is true:
    • The following cannot be used.
      •  Panzerfaust
      • Melee weapons
      • Throwables (includes Gas/Jerry Can)
      • Emergency Pickup
      • Emergency Parachute
    • You and the carried player still take damage separately.
    • Your movement speed remains the same. However, you cannot crouch, go prone, sprint, jump, or hurdle.
    • You may still fire your weapon, but from the hip only.
    • You may not use healing items.
    • You may not use throwables.
  • While being carried a player, the following is true:
    • Your field of vision is limited to the direction your carrier is facing you.
  • Carried players cannot join you in a vehicle.
  • When the Carrier starts to swim Carry is canceled and the carried person drops/sinks to the bottom.
  • You cannot attach to an Emergency Pickup while carrying a player.
  • You may not use an Emergency Parachute while carrying a player.
