This update is nothing short of thrilling, introducing an exclusive collaboration with Aston Martin and the updated Miramar map.

Highlights are below, or you can check out the patch notes for in-depth details.  

The Aston Martin collaboration introduces an unparalleled level of sophistication to the gaming experience: 

  • The three exclusive Aston Martin special vehicle skins promise to bring a touch of luxury to in-game experiences. 

  • Players owning the Aston Martin skin can unlock an exclusive Aston Martin container found in the starting areas of multiple maps. 

  • The Aston Martin containers are usable in Normal Match, Ranked, Casual Mode, and Custom Match - Normal Match for a duration of two months. 

Several enriching updates are also being introduced to Miramar: 

  • Partona, a lively circular village, replaces the area known as Los Higos. 

  • The Resort, an abandoned retreat with a panoramic view of the southern seascape, takes over the previous terrain. 

  • The Junkyard area gives way to the Truck Stop, characterized by its unique visual theme and distinct battle experience. 

  • The Red Zone of Miramar is being replaced by the intense Sandstorm. 

  • The introduction of the Zipline feature enables players to navigate across the map with ease. 

Here's an insight into the new Dragunov weapon: 

  • The Dragunov, the world's first designated marksman rifle, brings a lethal dose of firepower and the potential for high damage, heightening the thrill in every encounter. 

  • Using 7.62mm ammunition, it can deliver damage ranging from 58 (Basic) to 73 (Max) at a certain probability. 

  • Mastery over its hefty recoil and slower firing rate requires quick reflexes and a steady hand. 

  • The Dragunov is available as a world spawn and can be found on all maps and modes, except Bluebomb Rush mode.
