Press release


Details of PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS' Update 25.2 are revealed today. Included in the update is Chroma - a new Progressive Weapon Skin type as well as the re-introduction of the Dragunov DMR, the removal of Tactical Gear, additional adjustments to the popular Miramar map, and more. Update 25.2 is available on the PC Test Server today and will be rolling out on the PC live server Sept. 6 and on consoles by Sept. 14. Highlights are below, or you can check out the patch notes for in-depth details.   

Chroma – adding some brilliance to your Progressive Weapon Skins 

Introducing Chroma, a transformative skin enhancing the aesthetics of Progressive Weapon Skins, influencing weapon skin, attachments, loot crates, and killfeeds. Available via the Hideout, with more details forthcoming in our Store Update, Chroma dynamically reflects across all levels of a weapon's progression. Users can preview this vibrant addition within the Hideout, showcasing its adaptability across unlocked skin levels. 

The Dragunov DMR Fires Back 

The Dragunov, a Designated Marksman Rifle (DMR) using 7.62mm ammo with a fixed damage of 60, is now available across various game modes. Initially introduced with a probabilistic damage system, feedback led to its removal in favor of enhancing its headshot damage, balancing it with a slower fire rate and heightened recoil, ensuring it remains skill-based and doesn't overshadow Sniper Rifles. 

Tactical Gear Is Going Into Storage For Now 

Tactical Gear has been temporarily disabled due to player feedback from the 24.1 Update. Developers are reviewing its alignment with gameplay, especially acquisition and performance, and plan to reintroduce it after refinements.
