July 7, 2022

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ 9th Map has been released: Deston! This map is available to play on public test servers after the release of Patch 18.2. This patch also includes new weapons, vehicles, mechanics and balance changes. All these features are currently only available to play on the Public Beta servers and will be available publicly with the launch of Patch 18.2 on July 12.

Deston - The Abandoned City

Deston was left to rot after being bankrupt and experiencing a catastrophic hurricane. The city is overtaken by desalination plants, overgrown algae farms, and flooded urban sprawl.

It is an 8x8 map and you can play Solos, Duos, and Squads game modes on it. It has various short-range and long-range vantage points across different Points of Interest. Some POIs include Hydroelectric Dam, Arena and Ripton. Deston also introduces new mechanics and equipment like Ascenders, Security Cards, Airboats etc. The map will also feature AI bots alongside real players. Here are some new features available on this map:

Ascenders

Ascenders are a new way of getting to higher ground in PUBG. You may recognize the design from Call of Duty Warzone and Fortnite since those games have similar-looking mechanics. Ascenders can be used to quickly gain a height advantage over enemies or to find a good vantage point for sniping

How do these work? Ascender Ropes spread throughout the map, attached to high-rise buildings and floors. To use them, you have to go near the rope and attach yourself to it. Depending on your current position, this will take up or down the rope.

AirBoat

The Airboat is a new vehicle introduced with the Deston map. This convertible flatboat can be used to travel on both land and water. It has a high speed, so you can use it to reposition quickly.

O12 Shotgun

A new weapon introduced in Patch 18.2 is the O12 Shotgun. This is a high-capacity shotgun known for its high-speed firing rate. It uses slugs for ammunition. With its combination of heavy damage and high rate of fire, the O12 will be extremely useful in both mid and close-range fights.

Utility Parachute

The Utility Parachute will be equipped for every player by default in Deston. When jumping from a high building, the parachute can be immediately deployed so you can slowly glide down from heights instead of falling down.

Additional Features: 

  • Vehicle Refueling - You can now refuel vehicles at gas stations which means you won’t have to change your car if the gas runs out.
  • Security Cards - Keycards available in Deston give you access to unique loot.
  • Hidden Areas - There are small areas hidden in Deston which can only be explored using a drone. Use your drone to hover over hidden areas to have a chance to find some rare loot.

Deston will be fully released into the game one day after the release of Patch 18.2; on July 13. Apprently, there are some changes being made to the terrain of Miramar to make it easier for players to move around, and some adjustments to vehicle spawn locations.
