PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS Update 29.1 Adds Destructible Terrain and Ducati Motorbikes

/ 1 month ago

I have to admit I never really got into the MOBA genre too hard and didn’t really like PUBG either, but hey, the gaming market is big and every game isn’t for every person! However, I must admit that PUBG: Battlegrounds has come a long way since its launch, offering a plethora of updates and upgrades that have turned it into something much more appealing these days.

The latest updates update is pretty significant, as it not only introduces destructible terrain, which is really cool, but it also introduces collaboration with the Italian premium motorcycle brand ‘Ducati’ for some epic two-wheel action.

The team at KRAFTON, Inc. has announced that PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS update 29.1 is now available on the PC live server too, so you can get right into the action with the above features included, as well as a new melee Pickaxe weapon, and a wealth of map and game updates, as well as some balancing improvements that should keep you entertained for many hours more while you get your MOBA fix.

Destructible Terrain

With this update, the ‘Destructible Terrain’ feature announced in the PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS 2024 Roadmap has been introduced to Rondo, allowing players to destroy terrain when engaging in battles in open areas to create cover and new attack routes. Terrain can be destroyed with the newly added melee weapon ‘Pickaxe’, some throwables, and vehicle explosions.

  • You can now destroy terrain to create cover when engaging in a battle within open areas.
  • Terrain made of concrete, cement, rock, or stone is not destructible.
  • The Frag Grenade, Mortar, Panzerfaust, Sticky Bomb, C4, vehicle explosion, and Pickaxe can be used to destroy terrain.
  • The maximum depth of destruction is 1.3m.
  • If you destroy terrain near an externally located wall, the terrain beyond the wall will also be destroyed. 
  • Objects within the destruction range will only be destroyed if they were previously destructible.
  • Items in the area of effect will not be destroyed, and installed items will be converted into dropped items.
    • Folded Shields installed within the destruction range will have their durability reduced, and deployed Emergency Pickup will not be canceled. 
  • Inventory slot: Melee Weapons
  • Damage: 60
  • Weight: 40
  • Can be used to destroy terrain.
  • World spawns.

Ducati Collaboration

Collaboration with the Italian premium motorcycle brand ‘Ducati’ is also underway. Through this collaboration, players can earn various collaboration goods, including Ducati Special Vehicle skins, in PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS. Special Vehicle skins can be obtained by collecting ‘Ducati Tokens’ available through ‘Step Up Package’ and ‘Loot Cache Packs’, available for sale from 9 April to 8 May on PC and from 18 April to 16 May on consoles.

Rondo Updates

Rondo has been added to ranked play and improved overall, with reductions in frequency of the EMP Zone, which disables most electronic devices within its reach. The number of Emergency Cover airdrops deployed when using the Emergency Cover Flare has been reduced from 3 to 2, and the size has been slightly decreased. In addition, improvements have been made to In-Game Challenges and some of the terrain, objects, and environmental elements within Rondo.

General Improvements

In update 29.1, balance adjustments have been made to some weapons such as SCAR-L, AKM, Panzerfaust, and Mk12. The update also includes improvements in bot movement and behavior patterns, the addition of Mastery Medals, and the release of ‘Survivor Pass: Comic Chaos’.

Unfortunately, the formatting and overall size of the full changelog is a bit of a muddle for me to share on there in full, so check out the rest of the changes on the official pubg page here.
