Season 9 of PUBG brings in the most ambitious map yet, Paramo. Located at the base of an active volcano in South America, Paramo will be dangerous to all players. They can expect molten lava streams and falling debris as a new threat. Paramo is the first of PUBG’s Dynamic World System. This makes every trip different between rounds.
Paramo is so unique it will be in a separate seasonal match mode and not in the normal pool. The season-specific changes include disabled bots, disabled Battlestat features, and wins will not count for your career stats.
With a new map comes new rules. 64 players at a time on the 3x3km map. Red Zones are gone, probably enough dangers with all the lava. Blue Zone hits harder than other maps but gives you more time to escape their approach. Transportation is limited to motorcycles only. You can find them in small villages.
New features in Paramo include changing landmarks and weather. The randomized lava flows deal 10 damage per second and instantly pop tires. Boxes scattered in the towns have hidden supplies and weapons inside. Helicopter drop crates throughout the map, sure to be a player vs player hot spot. There is also a random Secret Room Key on the battlefield that unlocks an unknown room.
This is a huge step in the right direction for PUBG. Stiff competition from Call of Duty: War Zone and Fortnite are forcing Bluehole to make some big swings. The Dynamic Map System keeps the game fresh and players coming back for more. The new patch is a month out but you can give it a try on the Public Test Realm.
