PUBG 2.06 Patch Notes (v17.1) – April 21, 2022
RETURN OF SANHOK
As you may have already heard from our 2022 DEV PLAN, Sanhok’s appearance of when it was first released – yes, with Bootcamp’s lobster-shaped building, Docks, Ruins, Quarry, and the original blue-and-green jungle theme – will be making its comeback this update. Both big and small changes were made to the overgrown paradise throughout many past updates with the efforts of creating balanced gameplay and an even better map theme, but our continuous monitor of our players’ voices has made us realize the reworked Sanhok was not producing the anticipated, positive gameplay experience.
Therefore, even if it is undeniably sad to say goodbye to a longtime feature, we have decided to revert Sanhok to its original appearance and work on making it better by starting from the very beginning. We are of course continuously discussing various methods on improving Sanhok moving forward.
KEY LANDMARK CHANGES
One of Sanhok’s popular hot drops, this abandoned training facility returns with its representative lobster-shaped building.
Drop back onto the roof of the daring chambers.
Docks (Previously Getaway)
Say goodbye to the touristy resort town and welcome back the cargo-rich docks!
The reworks have also been undone to the flooded limestone quarry.
The nameless set of houses has redeemed its original identity.
Apart from the images shown above, Mongnai (previously Airfield) will also be returning along with the original Cave, Mountain, River, Pai Nan, Khao, Sahmee, and Kampong.
Certain textures from the current Sanhok map such as building walls, foliage, etc. have been applied.
The following features will be removed from the original Sanhok:
The following items will remain in the original Sanhok:
40mm Smoke Grenade
NEW WEAPON: ACE32
Players seem to struggle mastering recoil control to use the powerful 7.62mm Assault Rifles (AR). So to relieve some of that stress, we are excited to introduce a relatively simple 7.62mm AR boasting high stability (low recoil), the ACE32!
As our current AR weapon pool seemed to lack the number of 7.62mm weapons capable of firing full-auto mode compared to the 5.56mms, we’ve decided to release an attachment-friendly 7.62mm weapon anticipated to be easier to tame than the Beryl M762.
The ACE32 will world spawn in every map.
Weapon slot: Primary weapon
Normal Matches, Ranked Matches, Custom Matches, Sandbox Mode (PC), Training Mode
Unavailable in Custom Match – Esports Mode.
Assault Rifle (AR)
Effective fire range
Rate of fire (delay between shots)
Up to 6x Scope
All AR muzzles
All AR grips
All AR mags
The Tactical Pack can no longer store other Tactical Gear (Drone, EMT Gear, Spotter Scope).
Karakin will be replaced with the original version of Sanhok for this update’s Normal Match rotation. Erangel, Miramar, and Taego will continue to be permanent fixtures for Ranked.
Erangel / Miramar / Taego / Haven / Sanhok

The team logo, photos, and trophy of the winners of PGC 2021, NewHappy, have entered the Hall of Fame.
Added billboards displaying the latest PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS news to certain areas such as the Starting Island, Shooting Range, Quarry, Georgopol, Pochinki, and more.
