MVP Showcase is included in this mode. A few guns such as AKM, M416, Kar 98, M762 and a handful smgs to use. No med kits or other healing items are present to use.
- MVP Showcase System – All players receive a default MVP pose. The top 3 players in Classic mode or the MVP of the winning squad in TDM will be featured. This pose isn’t equipped in inventory and is only available during matches.
- Vikendi Player trails – Players leave footprints and cars leave tire marks behind them in the snow and these clues can be helpful to track down enemies or used to trick enemies.
- Friendly Fire Merit System – Friendly fire victim can decide whether the teammate (Assailant) loses his merit or not. There is no need to report the other player now for friendly fire.
- Popularity Ranking – Popularity gift and ranking rewards are added. Every week the top 100 players in the popularity ranking can collect the title of “ALL-time Popularity or Recent Popularity”
- Charisma Ranking – Permanent outfits, Firearm/Vehicle finishes collected by a player will increase his Charisma. This means the charisma of each player will suggest how much is a player’s wardrobe size.
New Achievement Module – Four new achievements are added
- Victory Legion: Complete 1/5/10/20 matches with Dominating in Team Deathmatch.
- Alpha & Omega: Get the first kill and final blow in a Team Deathmatch.

Now 6 qualifying matches will be held per day (increased from 5), a crew can take part in max 3 matches per day (increased from 2), each squad can participate in a total of 18 matches (increased from 12). New items have been added to the crew shop.
- Robust Anti Hack System – THE MOST IMPORTANT FEATURE ADDED! Third party apps/softwares used for hacking are now disabled. Congrats to everyone who waited patiently, including me. Hacks are now disabled and players can no more hack. These hacks were used for wall hacks, location hacks, aimbots, high jumps, items display, enemies shown in box, enemy health bars being shown and all other hacks are now disabled. However the bitter truth is that people will try again and again to hack and use it for their benefits but let’s hope PUBG prevents this from happening.

I’m really happy and satisfied with this update because of less hacking which we will see in the game, TDM mode and Crew match upgrades is really intense and interesting and one can play them even if they have little time on hands. The adrenaline rush in Vikendi when I see footprints and track down other players. Currently waiting for the research lab which is not available at the moment. However all the other things in this update make up for this deficiency. It’s a win win or I might say WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER.
