PC Patch Notes - Update 14.2

New Weapon: Mortar

The new Taego weapon Mortar is easy to use in combat situations, but it can take a lot of practice to achieve reasonable accuracy. First, you must calculate the distance to the target and the expected movement path, so calculate carefully. Once you get used to it, it can be helpful to attack behind ridges where grenades can’t reach or when defending specific areas. Also, it can be effective when destroying the trunk of a vehicle. In particular, you can use various strategies in cooperative play, so be sure to use them in battle!

  • Once looted, it takes up a primary slot.
  • Deployment
    • It can only be deployed on flat surfaces.
      • It cannot be deployed on cement, iron, concrete, water, or wooden floors, or inside buildings.
      • Left-click to deploy the Mortar.
      • Press the “F” key to cancel deployment.
    • Requires three seconds for deployment.
  • Firing
    • The character crouches automatically once the firing mode gets activated.
    • The character cannot move until the firing mode gets released.

New Weapon: M79

Our new M79 is a smoke grenade launcher that was created to provide quick smoke cover on longer ranges. Blind your enemies, cover your downed teammate or make a grand escape from a losing battle!

  • Weapon slot: Pistol slot
    • Cannot be used in a vehicle’s driver’s seat.
  • New ammo type: 40mm Smoke Grenade
    • Once it hits an object that’s more than 10m far away, the projectile will release the first smoke effect followed by a second one a few seconds later.

    • World spawns in stacks of 1 to 3.

    • Will not be available in Training Mode to prevent other players from getting interfered by the smoke effect. However, we will consider adding it in later updates.
  • Spawn Location
    • World spawn
  • Damage to enemies: 0
  • Max firing range: 400m
  • Reloading speed: 3.5 – 4 seconds

New Feature: DBNO Swimming

To improve the survivability of players inside water, we are now supporting DBNO Swimming. Previously a player who enters DBNO while in the water would skip DBNO and instantly die. This made any deep water a hazardous area to traverse. Now a player will instead enter Swimming DBNO, a slow swimming state which gives the player a chance to reach the shore and be revived by teammates. Hopefully, you’ll feel more confident next time you get into a Boat or swim across that river!

  • DBNO Players can swim for at half of the normal speed.
  • The air a player has in their lungs is not reset when entering DBNO, so a player who was drowning will continue to drown in DBNO.
  • In DBNO a player is constantly losing HP. combined with drowning HP loss this means that a DBNO player will die within 10 seconds underwater.
  • Reviving underwater is impossible, and any ongoing revive is canceled when either player goes underwater or moves around too much.
  • It is possible to revive a swimming DBNO player while floating on the water.


Taego’s New Creature: Chicken

We are proud to introduce the Chicken, a new creature that will hopefully amuse many players during fierce combats in Taego! “Chicken? Why the heck?” you might wonder. The answer to this question is left to your imaginations.

  • Three different conditions apply:
    • Calm
      • This is the default state and, at the same time, the most stable emotional state. Calm as a monk, and nothing special.
    • Fear
      • The Chickens fly, not, run for their lives in the following situations.
        • When hearing
          • Punching
          • Footsteps (except prone sound)
          • Gunshots
          • Engine and exhaust sounds
          • Other creatures die
    • Death
      • Sadly, there’s an end to everything. Taego’s amuser also passes away once hit. They take damages from guns and grenades, then turn into fried chicken upon death. Sorry, a bad joke, they go to where we all go.

  • We will add a button to the Profile Overview page to link your PUBG account and Krafton ID.
  • With the update, the PUBG account can be linked directly with Krafton ID from the lobby.

Profile Overview

Previously, the Career page was used as the profile screen. It was difficult for players to recognize their status at a glance, and it was also challenging to identify which player they were when viewing other players’ profiles. That’s why we want to provide you with a profile overview where you can see at a glance the current state of yourself and other players. Here, you can show off your fashion sense and skin!

  • You can check the summary of your current season stats in “Career” → “Overview”.
  • You can check the last played match mode, team mode, and season summary information at the time of the current season.
  • Current survival level, last killed weapon mastery information, and last obtained medal information is displayed.
  • The summary of the player’s season stats will be visible in other players’ profiles. 
  • Previous records, adding friends, and inviting teams are possible in the same way as in the previous record profile.
  • You can edit emblems, nameplates, character poses, and medals.
  • It may take some time after a match for the stats to be reflected.

QoL Improvements

      • 2nd Phase: Activated when there are less than 30 survivors
      • 3rd Phase: Activated when there are less than 18 survivors

      • 5th Phase: Activated when there are less than 3 survivors
      • 6th Phase: Activated when there are less than 3 survivors
    • The following message will be displayed
      • The Blue Zone delay has been reduced because of the decreased survivor count.
