PUBG's next patch adds a new machine gun and a decoy grenade


PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is a game about information - knowing where potential threats and targets are is key to the path to delicious chicken dinners. That's what makes the decoy grenade that's coming in the next big patch so powerful: it actively messes with that information. The decoy grenade is just one added feature on the way in Update 8.2, which arrives on PC August 19.
The decoy grenade is a new throwable item that you'll be able to pick up on Sanhok once Update 8.2 arrives. When thrown, the grenade emits weapon sounds, giving the indication of a firefight underway.
