With the new update, the developers have added more loot on the Erangel map, which is one of the many things the players wanted. Along with that, there are other changes such as Flare Gun balance, addition of a new weapon – MP5K, tweaks on M16A4’s performance.

With an extended magazine the MP5K can hold 40 rounds of bullets.
The new Survivor Pass 3: Wild Card adds 60 rewards, which can be won over a period of 10 weeks pass duration.
