Season 12.1

In addition to introducing a remastered Miramar when it releases on PC on 2 June and consoles on 10 June, Season 12 will also introduce a new ranked season, expanded customisation options, a new weapon and a new vehicle.

New Ranked Season - Update 12.1 marks the beginning of a new ranked season, meaning all rewards earned during the Ranked Season 11 will be automatically added to players’ inventory once Season 12 goes live on 2 June. Similar to Ranked Season 11, Ranked Season 12 will run for a two-month period.

Weapon Skin Upgrade System - The new weapon skin upgrade system will make its debut with 12.1, allowing players to evolve the cosmetics of certain weapon skins by consuming specific in-game materials and goods. Acquired from the Weapon Skin Lucky Box, these evolutionary weapon skins will gain new features as they are levelled up.

New Weapon - Lynx AMR - Available through Care Packages in Miramar normal matches, the L6 Lynx is PUBG's first Anti-Material Rifle. This semi-automatic crate gun is capable of penetrating military equipment, and armoured players or vehicles. Intended as a hard counter to vehicles, the L6 remains an effective sniper rifle against players when used wisely.

New Vehicle - Quad - Available on Miramar, this all-terrain-vehicle (ATV) has four low-pressure tires with the driver seat designed to be straddled by the operator, with handlebars for steering control. It is modelled after a racing-style ATV but includes a rear seat for a second occupant. 

Lobby Ball - While waiting on the starting island for a match to start, players will now find a football (soccer ball) they can kick around with other Survivors. Players can dribble, pass, and shoot the football (soccer ball) while they wait, or even coordinate a short game of football (soccer) if they like.
