PUBG to bring these new features in its Labs – Zone Tag in the upcoming update

PUBG PC Servers has released the 10.3 updates and this now playable on the live server. This update brings back your favorite weapon sounds with the Weapon Sound Selection system, performance improvements, updates to the reputation system, and more.

Recently, PUBG announced to bring a new way to play PUBG is coming to LABS – Zone Tag. In the Zone Tag, players compete to gain and manage a match.

From this time on, the entire Blue Zone player follows the ball until it catches the ball, bathes in the light column, and hits them. All players on that team benefit from an unlimited boost measure. If any player does not have it, the ball will look for a nearby worthy target or begin to go to the hunters in the middle of the map, dragging until the blue zone is removed again.

This mode is fast and furious, so land vehicles will rise at all possible points on the map, will not be subject to weapon damage and tire puncture, and will provide players with unlimited ammunition. Your gun will still have the capacity and will need to be reloaded when it is empty, but reloading it will not store your ammo.

After the start of the sixth stage of the game, the ball disappears and the position of the circle is set. From this time on, the zone settings will be the same as anything else and the squads will have to face it to stand last.

Some quick notes on the rules – the water, the small islands around Engel, some of the roofs and boats that are usually inaccessible are not all Buenos Aires.

Entering one of these restricted areas automatically separates the ball and players in these areas are not considered eligible qualifiers to attach. Players can also be damaged by getting into the water, so keep those shoes dry while plotting your way.

Below is a detailed breakdown of the terms – Labs: The Zone Tag which is available on PCs from February 9 to 15 and on the console from February 23 to March 1. This is very different from us, so let us know your opinion. Get the ball to end the ones left in the zone tag, avoid your attackers and set up your own end circle.
