What’s New On new PUBG Vikendi Snow Map?


  • G36C spawns only in Vikendi
  • Chambered for 5.56mm ammo, it can load 30 bullets and 40 with an Extended Magazine
  • G36C has a lower and upper rail for attachments, but cannot attach a stock


  • The Snowmobile only spawns in Vikendi
  • It seats 2 players and performs much better than other vehicles on snow and ice, but is more difficult to drive on another terrain.

#3: Replay Editor

  • This system allows you to create dynamic video clips with creative camera angles and special effects using your replay files
  • You can also create 3D paths for the camera and camera angles and export clips

#4: Redzone

  • The center of the red zone spawns outside of the play zone
  • The smaller the play zone, the smaller the red zone

#5: Bluezone

  • The first circle of every game is much smaller than other maps, but subsequent circle sizes change less drastically.
  • This facilitates more blue zone variety and unique experiences.
  • Similar strategies work on Vikendi to Erangel and Miramar for the first three phases, but the zones will close slower starting from phase 4, similar to Sahnok. We feel this leads to a good balance between strategy and gunplay throughout the duration of each match

#6: Item Spawn Balance

  • The overall item spawn rate is at a midpoint between our maps – offering a unique place between the spawn rates of Erangel and Sahnok.
  • Level 3 helmets spawn in the world
  • Level 3 vests spawn more often than other maps
    Smoke Grenades are spawned at a higher rate compared to other throwables

#7: Snow Lobby

  • Applied a snowing effect in lobby
  • Changed the background music

Other features

  • Players can throw snowballs while waiting to board the plane in the starting area
  • Vehicles will be more slippery in snow or icy areas. Acceleration on icy terrain is slow and you lose more general vehicle control as you speed up
  • Footprints and vehicle tracks will appear as players travel in snow-covered areas. Keep an eye out! These are great to help identify if enemies have passed by recently
  • Keep in mind that footprints and tracks in the snow don’t stay around forever!
