During the next PubG: Battlegrounds release on May 11th on PC and May 19th of the consoles they have announced they will release a 1v1 Training Arena in its 17.2 update. They’ve also announced changes to the spotter scope update and some changes to the weapon balance specifically of 5.56 mm DMRs (MK12 and the mini 14), they say the reason for these are that the MK12 recovery value need to be improved to be inline with the Mini14’s stability and Mini14’s damage will be. increased slightly.
Following the release of the mortar weapon on the Taego Map, it has been updated to allow it to be used on any terrain except where it is not secured by a large angle of flooring or when it is on water. In normal matches, the mortar will now be available on all maps except Haven, and will take up the inventory slot.
To promote healthy gameplay, the range has been reduced from 1000 m to 600 m, and Scan for Enemies now requires you to hold down the fire Fire key. Exiting ADS mode in the middle of a scan will cancel it and force you to restart it from the beginning.
When the Scan Completes Passive markers will appear on enemies within the field of view of the spotter scope, but they will not appear on enemies who enter the field of view after the scan has finished. When you complete a scan, it overwrites any previous enemy markers.
If you hide behind solid covers, like buildings or treesm, when you exit the spotter scope field of view you will lose the marker.
When you finish a scan and a passively marked enemy is in the centre of the scope, you can press the fire key to change them from a passive to an active marker. If they hide behind cover, such as buildings or trees, they will also vanish. A warning message appears on your screen if you are marked by an enemy active marker.
If the active marker is still within the field of view of the spotter scope after 3 seconds, it will revert to a passive marker, otherwise the mark will vanish completely.
Training Mode Improvements
You must interact with a sign board outside the arena to begin a 1v1 arena match. When you interact with one of the numerous signboards throughout the arena, you will be added to the 1v1 matching pool, which you can cancel at any time by interacting with the ticket booth again. Before you can enter the Arena, a 5-second countdown will appear once you’ve been matched with someone in the pool.
You are unable to access other training areas such as the Aim/Sound Lab, private indoor target practice, or Jump School while waiting for your turn to enter the 1v1 match, attempting to do so will pop up a message asking you to cancel your 1v1 matchmaking.
