Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds 4th Monthly Update Will Add Mk14 EBR

After today’s Leaderboards reset, there’s more to come to PUBG and we simply love the idea. We are true PUBG fans, just as the rest of the whole world! First of all, we are going to kick off with the new weapon, Mk14 EBR. It’s an extremely good marksman rifle that uses 7.62 ammo, just as the SKS and Kar98. However, its shooting style feels a lot better than the SKS and Kar98. It will only drop only from Carepackages, so it’s gonna be tough. This gun will become the most favorite among players, and if you have it equipped with a Ghillie suit, it’s gonna be your game all the way.

The Mk14 EBR will come within the next monthly update 4. As a celebration, the game will also receive crates so players can open them to get their most desired character look. As Brendan said, this project needs a stable Steam Market Economy, so therefore this project will be released as a test only. After this announcement, we expect nothing else except for Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds trading and selling market to become similar to Dota 2’s market. No one will be pushed to use this project and the game will remain totally the same.

There will be 2 types of crates. Survivor Crate and Wanderer Crate and they’ll contain various of cosmetic items so players can adjust the look of their character the way they want.

The excitement never ends
