Now that the new map is available for matchmaking on PUBG mobile, you must be wondering what things you need to do differently and where to land for the best loot. We've been testing the new map in the beta version of the game to prepare you for the best landing locations and strategies you need to follow.Map Size And Strategies To Use
The new map called ' Vikendi' is a mixture of maps like Erangel and Miramar. It's smaller than the two maps but a bit bigger than Sanok. It's a 6x6 map where it is essentially designed to bring the best feature of the two sizes already available on other maps. It's a combination of action packed hot zones and quaint spots for the best loots.
Apart from using the minimap on the top right corner, you can use the new main feature of tracking footprints. Being a snow map, you will be able to track fresh footprints on the snow until it vanishes after ten minutes. It will basically give you an idea that someone has already been here recently and could be around you. Ten minutes is an awfully long time and could be possible that the person is now long gone.Clothing Matters
It's doesn't take much to realise that your clothing will matter a lot in the new map. Try to avoid wearing extremely bright clothes as you will stand out in the white snow. Try to wear grey clothing so that it helps blend better with the environment. This will come most handy during the last phase of the collapsable circle as you need to make sure you're not easy to spot. Remember, enemies can still track your footprints, especially in the last phase of the circle.Best Drop Locations: Hot Zones And Best Loot
At the moment, the game's spawning of weapons is a bit iffy as you will see more SMGs and Shotguns spawning than Sniper and Assault Rifles. Having said that, the new update may bring a few changes for the Mobile version to keep it more exciting and fast paced. During the course of our gameplay, we noticed a few Hot Spots where you can land and some quieter locations where you can loot in peace.
Hot Drops: The main named locations are the hottest spots to land just like the other three maps on PUBG Mobile. You can reach these locations from any flight path however the most noticeable locations are Coal Mine, Castle, Villa, Mount Kreznic and Dino Park. You will find more loot at these locations which may also result in more people landing in your vicinity.
Quieter Spots: If you want to land in a quieter spot which gets less number of enemies, you want to land in areas like Milnar, Cosmodrome, Winery, Cantra, Dobro Mesto, Peshkova, Movatra and Krichas. There's still good loot here but due to the bigger location size, you may have to hunt a bit more.
The 'Vikendi' snow map is now available on PUBG Mobile, Xbox and PlayStation for matchmaking and do follow these essential strategies to get that Chicken Dinner. In order to play the new map, you need to be on the latest version of PUBG for your specific platform and need to download the map separately in order to begin matchmaking.
