PUBG Developer Teases Mini-14 Weapon and Foggy Weather Effects
Ever since Bluehole announced that it was dropping PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds scheduled monthly updates, fans of the battle royale game have been enjoying increased server stability and fewer bugs. In lieu of the monthly updates, the PUBG developer has instead chosen to focus on fewer, more content-filled updates, the latest of which Bluehole teased on the game’s Twitter account. A teaser image for the new Mini-14 can be found in the tweet below:
New @PUBATTLEGROUNDS weapon alert!

Arriving on the public test server in a few days, the Mini-14 will be “available all over the island of Erangel,” meaning that players won’t have to fight over supply crate drops to try out the new weapon. Though the PUBG developer has yet to release any information on the Mini-14, Wikipedia says that it is a “lightweight .223 caliber (5.56 mm) semi-automatic rifle,” that is popular with “law enforcement, security personnel, hunters, ranchers and target shooters.” So, those looking to try the Mini-14 out in-game should pick up 5.56 ammo while looking for it.
The upcoming patch will also introduce a foggy weather mechanic to the game, which should delight players that prefer a more subtle approach compared to the hordes of players that drop in Pochinki. The new weather mechanic was revealed yesterday on Twitter while celebrating PUBG’s milestone of one million concurrent users on Steam. Like the Mini-14, the foggy weather mechanic will arrive on the public test server in a few days before going live later this week.
So, thoughts on the latest update? What do you think of the Mini-14 so far, is it a weapon you’ll actively seek out? Are you looking forward to the game’s new desert map?
