How much of a PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds tragic am I? I'll tell you - I get genuinely excited when new weapons are added to the game, and today... I am genuinely excited by the upcoming Mini-14 rifle.
The new was announced today via Twitter, with the additional heads up that it's coming to the game next week, and that it'll be a spawn on the island.
PUBG is just calling it the Mini-14, but a bit of research reveals - based on the stock and pistol grip design - that it's the Mini-14GB. In reality, the stock is of the folding variety - which probably won't be a game feature - and the rifle itself is semi-automatic, chambered for 5.56 ammunition, and using a 20 or 30-round box magazine. It also has and integral flash suppressor and a threaded barrel, for suppressor attachments
Of course, that's all in real life - in the game we're still not sure how it'll be specced. Regardless, it'll make the perfect companion for lovers of the M4A1 carbine, letting them focus on a single round for both CQB and long ranged engagements.
On top of this, First Person only servers showed up yesterday in the Oceania region, but only for Duo matches. And let me tell you, that's where the fun's at.
See you on the island.
