Later this month, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds will be entering season 5 and along with it comes the new Survivor Pass: Badlands. This begins with update 5.1, which improves Miramar by adding updated loot, map objects, terrain, and a static scope on the map-themed Win94 repeater rifle.
Players also now have a new way to assist their allies and take down their enemies with the new item throwing mechanics. Toss your squad mates that much needed energy drink or go for the longshot and take down that last survivor with an expertly calculated pan throw.
In addition to the gameplay updates, the Survivor Pass is back with new rewards, missions, and improved systems! Survivor Pass: Badlands rewards players with outfits and weapon skins themed around the harsh desert and its former inhabitants. Additionally, players can also dive into the history of Miramar for the first time as they unlock parts of the Season 5 story trailer together as a community, while playing the game like normal.
PUBG season 5 will begin on October 23rd for PC and October 29th on consoles. For more information or to see a full list of changes, visit the official website.
