How totally different is the Livik map?
The Livik map is unique to PUBG Cellular, to convey smaller matches to the sport. This new Livik map will be described as a Nordic map which, as defined above, has a mixture of snowy terrain, inexperienced fields, and waterfalls. It’s a small map measuring 2 km x 2 km which is small in comparison with the opposite maps in PUBG Cellular. Each the Erangel and Miramar maps are 8 km x 8 km in measurement, the Vikendi map is 6 km x 6 km and Sanhok is 4 km x 4 km in measurement. This makes Livik the smallest map within the sport. For the reason that map is small, the sport solely drops 52 gamers on it. That is round half as many gamers as you will encounter on the opposite maps. The participant density is decrease in consequence, and the possibilities of participating with an opponent immediately goes down. I desire this because it provides a participant sufficient time to choose up weapons.
Locations on the map reminiscent of Crabgrass, Midtstein, Gass, and Blomster have the next variety of gamers touchdown. Which means that the possibilities of participating in fight after touchdown there are rather a lot larger. These areas even have a good quantity of weapons out there so you are not at a large drawback if you’re fast to land. Nevertheless, if you’re a brand new participant I might advocate that you just keep away from these areas as a lot as doable.
One other factor that’s totally different with the Livik map is the time limitation. This map has a time restrict of 15 minutes solely. That could be a lot decrease than all the opposite maps within the sport and it will not take lengthy to play a full sport. Shorter sport time was the primary purpose behind the Livik map, because the aim of the builders was to permit people to play a full map in 15 minutes. Whereas taking part in I used to be eradicated very early within the first few matches as I saved touchdown on the hotspots I discussed earlier than. Altering my touchdown location and taking part in cautiously did assist me get to Rooster Dinner’ in about 14 minutes. It was one of many shortest full map matches I’ve performed on PUBG Cellular.
What new objects are added in Livik?
There are two weapons added particularly for this map: the P90 and Mk12 Marksman Rifle. The P90 is a submachine gun with a really excessive firing price whereas the Mk12 gives high-speed bursts whereas sniping. The builders have additionally added an prolonged barrel attachment on this map which will be hooked up to a sniper, rifle or submachine gun to extend the vary of the weapon. For the reason that map is smaller, this could assist gamers have a mid-to-long vary weapon with out particularly on the lookout for snipers.
The Livik map additionally has a Monster Truck that can assist you and your squad get to the secure zone shortly. Its huge tyres ought to assist clear totally different terrain very simply. I didn’t handle to drive a Monster Truck within the sport however I did spot one (and opened fireplace at it) throughout a sport. The builders have additionally added just a few ramps in locations so that you can bounce the monster truck. So in the event you do get one, you’ll be able to attempt just a few jumps earlier than you eradicate different gamers.
Does the Livik map replace matter?
I have a look at the Livik map as a neat method of taking part in a full map in simply 15 minutes. I at all times discovered Erangel to take longer to complete. Livik feels apt for a small 15 minute break and it would not spill over past this time.
