- PUBG Mobile has finally announced the release date for the Karakin map.
- The Karakin map will replace Vikendi, so you can play the latter before it is gone.
- PUBG Mobile has introduced new weapons and vehicles with the Karakin map.
PUBG Mobile Karakin map is going to be exciting for players. It was announced that PUBG Mobile Update 1.3 will bring the Karakin map that will take the place of the Vikendi map. The PUBG Mobile 1.3 is already rolling out to players with the new Hundred Rhythms Mode, which brings along several new weapons and special abilities. Now, the Karakin map is based on a North African coast, which is why you get to have the Chicken Dinner in a desert.
According to the patch notes of PUBG Mobile Update 1.3, the Karakin map is dry, has an open environment, and is filled with boulders. The Karakin map stretches two square kilometres and supports only Classic Mode that can have a maximum of 64 players. There will be a Demolition Zone mechanic available on the map. And this Demolition Zone is what will define the Karakin map largely. It will spice up the gameplay by reducing the number of hideouts on the map, allowing players to turn buildings into ashes. The demolition of buildings happens in real-time, in the purple area of the Mini-map, which is why players will need to return to the safe zone to avoid getting trampled inside demolished buildings.
PUBG Mobile Karakin Map release date
PUBG Mobile made an announcement via its Instagram profile that the Karakin map will be released for players on April 7. Though a particular timing is not available right now. The makers also said that the Karakin map will replace Vikendi, so players who want to spend their time on the Vikendi map must do that before the map is gone.
PUBG Mobile Karakin Map Weapons, Vehicles
The most interesting weapon, personally, is the new sticky bomb that can destroy a wall after sticking to it by a throw. After buildings are blown up, players will have new hideouts to crouch behind to defend themselves from attacks. Better yet, there are some "hidden spaces" that can be unlocked only after you destroy buildings using the sticky bomb. You also have a new firearm called Panzerfaust that shoots rockets. These rockets explode on hitting a surface, powerful enough to damage thin walls, penetrate objects within a six-metre range. But this is a single-use weapon. There is also a new Mosin Nagant Sniper rifle.
PUBG Mobile has added a new motor glider in the update that will spawn around Erangel and Miramar maps. It is a two-person vehicle with a driver's seat and pillion that can use weapons from behind. To take off, this vehicle needs to hit the top speed but at the same time, the driver needs to understand that speed acceleration will use up as much fuel. PUBG Mobile version 1.3 also brings a new Arena map called Code-C. This map is small and has staggered passages that facilitate fast gameplay. This is meant for players who like to engage in an aggressive showdown, taking the help of assault rifles, sub-machine guns, and even sniper rifles.
