In addition to the New Erangel map, PUBG MOBILE’s much-loved small-scale high intensity newest battlefield Livik also got a facelift. The M1014 is an all-new semi-automatic shotgun that only appears in Livik on the Classic Battle Royale Map and Arena, along with other shotguns.

For improved training, each player now has access to their own private training ground to improve their target-shooting, throwing and more. Players can now join others in Cheer Park to enjoy combat or watch duels together, in the newly completed building to the left of the target range.

The island will be decorated with romantic fixtures such as a two-seater swing and a romantic boat.
