You will also be able to throw items at your teammates. This should be helpful when you are in the midst of a fire and have low levels of ammunition or health. You can request a specific item using the communication system, and your teammate can send it once with a single keystroke.
Also, you will have the ability to grip weapons for close enemies. What is really most exciting about this is the prospect of killing a toss. It has a shorter maximum range than other throwing weapons, but can actually cause more damage than a machete, crowbar or sickle.
Also new with the Season 5 update are the vending machines, which is a case of PUBG taking a leaf out of the Fortnite PlayBook. They will be launching painkillers and energy drinks and will be available in Miramar and Camp Jakal.
PUBG Corp plans to update the Miramar map this time after overhauling Erangel in season 4. Miramar will present a race track with stitches, ramps and jumps, along with a new car, the Golden Mirado. There will be less clutter in and around buildings, while the spawning speed for long range weapons and sights will be increased, as will helmets, bags and vests. In the meantime, along with the higher spawning speed, Win94 will have a built-in 2.7x range, though the weapon will be exclusive to Miramar. You will likely see fewer pistols on the map in the future as PUBG Corp reduced their rifle drop rate by 31 percent.
Of course, there is a new survival pass, along with community missions in which anyone can participate. Curiously, this includes collecting DVDs and broken cardboard boxes to unlock skin prizes, along with more gameplay details. You will also have access to challenge, progression, and season missions.
You can expect some user interface settings in the wardrobe, store and game, as well as sound and performance updates. PUBG Corp will add more options to Zombie Mode, along with ground respawns for war mode (rather than falling off the plane), debugging and replaying system settings.
You can test what PUBG season 5 is already stored on the test server on PC. The 5.1 update will be available on October 23 on live servers and on consoles on October 29.
