PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Update 21 introduces Training Mode, new weapon and vehicle, and revamped reward system

A major update has just hit the PC version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds with Update 21, which brings with it the much-requested Training Mode, a new weapon and vehicle, an all-new reward system, as well as a whole slew of other quality-of-life improvements and bug fixes.

Perhaps the largest feature of the update is the new Training Mode, in which players can try out all of the game’s weapons and vehicles in a safe, low-pressure environment. Somewhat strangely, each Training Mode session is still technically a multiplayer game, requiring at least 5 players to queue for it and maxing out at 20 players per session, with each session lasting 30 minutes. Seems a bit odd to not just make it accessible solo and sans time limit, but we’re sure it’ll be a welcome addition nevertheless.

The update also adds a new weapon, the MK47 Mutant assault rifle, as well as a new, Sanhok-exclusive vehicle, the Tukshai (more popularly known as a tuk-tuk). The update also revamps PUBG’s reward structure by implementing the new supply system. In this new system, players will be given a number of daily and weekly missions to complete as they play the game, with each completed mission rewarding survival XP. Earning enough survival XP will raise your survival level, which earns you a supply crate as a reward. And of course the update also includes an array of quality-of-life tweaks and bug fixes, the full list of which is far too extensive to even hope to summarize here, but you can check out all the fine details in the patch notes on the game’s Steam page.
