Highlights:

  • PUBG on PC gets Update #25 on live servers.
  • The new update brings Moonlight mode for Vikendi, along with loot rebalance.
  • The Snowbike has not included with this update.


Update #25 for the PC version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is now available for gamers. The new update brings a slew of new changes to the game, including a new SMG weapon called the Bizon that is said to be a low recoil, fully equipped weapon. There is also loot rebalance and a new weather setting for Vikendi, multiple quality of life improvements and more. However, the company has decided to not include the Snowbike with this update, which was previously teased, because of some gameplay issues that still need to be fixed. The Snowbike is said to be made available in a forthcoming update once the problems have been fixed. Additionally, a new 'secret location’ has also been added to Vikendi.

With this update, one will notice that there are fewer SMGs and DMRs to be found in Vikendi as a loot rebalance has been applied. More Automatic Rifles will be spawned now and the Sniper Rifle spawn rate will remain the same. LV3 helmets and vests have also been reduced and the spawn ratio of attachments has also been improved. As for the new Bizon SMG weapon, it uses 9mm bullets and is exclusive to Erangel and Vikendi. It can hold 53 rounds by default and can be equipped with only muzzle and sight attachments and does not support grips or magazines. A new Canted Sights attachment has also been added to the game, which is a new scope that has a secondary scope slot. It can be equipped with M416, Mutant, QBZ, SCAR-L, Beryl M762, AKM, AUG, G36C Assault Rifles; Mini14, Mk14, QBU, SLR, and SKS Designated Marksman Rifles; M24, Kar98k, and AWM Sniper Rifles; Vector, Bizon and MP Small Machine Guns, and S12K Shotgun and M249 LMG. 

The Moonlight weather setting is also live on the Vikendi map. Even though the new weather is implemented at night, it will not be as dark since “the big glowing super moon and bright aurora borealis will help you to detect enemies.” As mentioned above, a new secret location has also been added to the snow map and it remains to be seen where exactly this location is. Some quality of life improvements to the game includes the option to pre-set the firing mode of any firearm being picked up. There’s also improved UI widget visibility and the purchase failure message will show up when a purchase fails due to a Steam issue.
