PUBG Releases Desert Map Screenshots, Weapon, and Vehicle

With the continued excitement for PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS’ new desert map (now revealed to be “Miramar”), the creators of the wildly popular battle royale game have made several more announcements in the last couple of days about the map. After debuting several weapons, and the data mining community uncovering a plethora of skins that we should be expecting in PUBG down the road, the future is looking bright and full of surprises.

First and foremost, the long sought-after details of Miramar itself have been released. With a fresh terrain for epic battles to take place in, BlueHole has shared with us the official bird’s-eye view of Miramar as well as its points of interest. From their announcement:

Los Leones

  • The largest city in the region, Los Leones features ample shopping, a skyline filled with new construction, and a glorious, golden-hued City Center. Players should secure high vantage points by exploring the numerous construction sites, and loot for gear in the cavernous, abandoned commercial buildings.

El Pozo

  • El Pozo is a city known for its large industrial and entertainment districts. Players can test themselves against all comers in the Luchador Arena, put their motorcycle skills to the test In the death bowl, or hunt in the ruins of the long dead textile factories.

Monte Nuevo

  • Monte Nuevo is the picture of a town besieged. Ramshackle walls built to protect its residents now allow players ample cover to explore the well-stocked compound.

Valle del Mar

  • Valle del Mar is a colorful oceanside town bisected by the De Toro bridge. To the West of the bridge is a quaint school, and to the East, a beautiful church. The key to holding this town is bridge control, as it’s the only direct route between mainland and the island.

La Cobreria

  • The shipping and transport capitol of Miramar, La Cobrería’s most prominent feature is it’s enormous Rail Yard. Here, players will hunt and be hunted among the half-buried cargo of a long dead industry. Careful players should loot the schools and campuses that dot this town before attempting to hold the Yard.

San Martin

  • San Martín is located just west of Hacienda Del Patrón. Checkpoints and barriers have transformed this once-quiet small town into a war zone. Both sides of the town have overlooks, so careful players should scout first, before charging into town.

Pecado

  • Once a tourist destination featuring the largest casino in the region, Pecado continues to thrill players to this day with its mix of high-value loot and dangerous sightlines. Aggressive players will immediately loot the Arena and Casino, but savvy players should check out the 4 story hotels between them.

Chumacera

  • Chumacera is the husk of Miramar’s once thriving textile industry. Long abandoned factories overlook a main road lined with residential and commercial buildings. Verticality in both the buildings and terrain make this town an exciting location to loot- high risk, high opportunity!

Additionally, it was revealed that another desert map exclusive gun would be joining the roster, this time in the form of a lever-action shotgun known as the Win94. This weapon will be a world spawn and not exclusive to crates.

A pickup truck will also be joining the fight as a Miramar exclusive. There is a good chance you will be able to fit a fully stacked team by seating two in the front and two in the back as gunners.

It’s safe to say that we’ve got a lot to look forward to when Miramar is finally released. Until then, we anxiously count down the days until this content drop lands in PUBG for all of us to enjoy.
