What’s New In Update 14.2?

Patch 14.2 is quite a big one, as it includes two brand new weapons, plenty of changes, and even chickens! Full details can be found in the patch notes below, but here’s quick overview of the most important bits.

The first of the two weapons included in today’s update is the Mortar. A weapon that can be deployed on flat surfaces and fires explosive projectiles at your enemy.

Then there’s the M79 smoke grenade launcher that was reportedly designed to provide players with a quick smoke cover at longer ranges.

Patch 14.2 also includes a new DBNO swimming feature. Previously, a player who enters the DBNO while in the water would skip DBNO and instantly die, this is no longer the case.

Finally, and most importantly, 14.2 includes chickens. They don’t do much, apart from get angry when you go near them and die when you shoot them…obviously.

Full details for the November 2/3 PUBG update can be found in the patch notes below.

WORLD

We are proud to introduce the Chicken, a new creature that will hopefully amuse many players during fierce combats in Taego! “Chicken? Why the heck?” you might wonder. The answer to this question is left to your imaginations.

  • Three different conditions apply:
    • Calm
      • This is the default state and, at the same time, the most stable emotional state. Calm as a monk, and nothing special.
    • Fear
      • The Chickens fly, not, run for their lives in the following situations.
        • When hearing
          • Punching
          • Footsteps (except prone sound)
          • Gunshots
          • Engine and exhaust sounds
          • Other creatures die
    • Death
      • Sadly, there’s an end to everything. Taego’s amuser also passes away once hit. They take damages from guns and grenades, then turn into fried chicken upon death. Sorry, a bad joke, they go to where we all go.
