Over the last three days, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has been testing a new feature to prevent players from camping in the middle of the safe zone without engaging competitors.
“Land, loot, and camp in the circle for the rest of the match no more,” the team stated in a recent blog post. “Circle squatters that felt safe not to engage the enemy will now be forced to keep it moving as a second blue zone is being added to the existing circle. The new ‘inner blue zone’ will be both a camping deterrent and an indicator of where the next circle will be.”
Dubbed the Bluehole mode, the team has been trialling a second blue zone that appears within the safe one. This inner blue circle is the same size and position as the safe zone that proceeds it, and it’ll damage players camping in the Inner Blue Zone at the same rate as that of the next Blue Zone phase.
