PUBG Update #20 Introduces New Weapon ‘Beryl M762’ To All Maps (VIDEO)
PUBG Corp has revealed the details of a massive update for the PC version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, with plenty of new content for battle royale fans to sink their teeth into. Announced over on the Steam forums, PUBG Update #20 features new quality of life fixes as part of the Fix PUBG initiative, bug fixes, the introduction of the Sanhok-exclusive Scooter vehicle, and more.
In addition to the above updates, a new weapon called the Beryl M762 is being added to all maps. An assault rifle, the Beryl M762 is reportedly most similar to the AKM, with a higher rate of fire at the expense of slightly lower damage per bullet, though those that can control the weapon’s recoil will see a greater damage output. Like the AKM, the M762 is, of course, a 7.62 weapon, with attachment slots for barrel, scopes, grip. The M762 is also the first assault rifle that comes with single, burst, and automatic fire modes. Check out the short video below to see the new weapon in action:
