Tencent has finally started pushing out the v0.18.0 update for PUBG Mobile. As expected, the major update introduces a whole host of new features to the game as well as a number of bug fixes and improvements.
The company notes that the update will take up about 1.97GB of storage space on Android and 2.21GB on iOS. In other words, players will have to make quite a bit of space if they are running out of storage space in their phones.
With this update there have been many new and great additions to the game.
The biggest part of the update is the new version of Miramar, called Mad Miramar. An Oasis has been added to the northern part of the map, while to the northwest are some Urban Ruins. The developers have also added more housing areas, roads, and resources.
Vending machines have also been added to the game. These machines will dispense Energy Drinks and Painkillers and those who are lucky might get as many as eight drinks at a time.
There has been a really cool addition to this time’s update. I’m talking about the newly added Cheer Park.
What Is It?
It is basically a chilling area for all players. You can do a lot of things here that you wouldn’t be able to do in other modes of the game.
It resembles training ground a lot but has a ton of more features that make it the perfect chilling and training spot.
What All Can You Do?
So first of all when you enter the Cheer Park you will be presented with a whole ground/ park where players are doing random things. In my case, the first thing I noticed was the training area. The Cheer Park can accommodate up to 20 players at a once.
There is a token machine of some sort in close proximity. Once you get close to it you will have two options that you can select, ie. Rules and Training.
Selecting rules will display the set of rules for training and well when you click on training a countdown will begin starting from 3. Once the countdown is over there will be a set of aiming dummies that you have to shoot down in order to gain points. One dummy down equals five points.
This training session lasts for sixty seconds after you which you will be able to share your sore with friends and also invite them to challenge your score. On the right hand side of the token machine you’ll be able to see a ranking board where players with highest points will be shown.
Coming to the interaction and fun among those in the cheer park, the first thing to do is click on a player/friend.
When you click on the player you will be presented with many options, ie. Player profile, Send a gift, Chat, Squad, Interact, Quick Draw.
Yes, I know some of these sound quite exciting, don’t worry we will get to them. Coming back to the Interact option, when you click on it there will be three more options that will be visible. Once you click on any of those the opposite character has to accept the request.
You can drink with your friends: This creates a cool animation where your character and your friend’s character hold a can of beer and well have a toast.
Emote/dance: Another option will enable you to emote or dance with your friends, it does look quite fun honestly.
Give your friend flowers: It may sound weird but yes you an give your friend flowers with the third option.
Sending A gift
When you click on a player as you would have done previously for the interact option, you will also see an option to send a gift.
Once you select that option there will be six options that you will be able to see, you can send your friend some amount of in-game currency and also free stuff.
You can also check the profile of the players in the Cheer Park. When you click on the option. The player’s Name, Level, Leader status, option to send a gift, option to follow, invite to a team, and Block player.
The next option is as basic as it sounds. You can chat with the player and send them text messages as you would from the main menu.
This is one of the most fun things you could possibly do in the Cheer Park.
Once you send a request for a quick draw to the opposite player a six-second countdown will begin and as soon as the countdown gets over, you will have to be very quick and attempt to win the duel on the spot. The one who loses gets knocked down.
If you don’t want to have a very quick duel you can enable the quick draw and position yourselves within the countdown time or as you wish. The duel can last up to ninety seconds. So have fun shooting, sniping, shotgunning, etc!
Now there are a few other interesting options and features that we are going to go through.
The first one being Daily Rewards, on the top left side of the screen you should find a daily rewards button one that says something like 1/3. Here you will be able to collect gifts for doing daily tasks as in Cheer Park.
On the top left. You will also find a member list that includes the players currently in the Cheer Park the same as yours. When you click on the button you will see a few options like showing the profile of a player. The most interesting one I find is the tracking option.
The tracking option will take you to the player you clicked on without doing anything by yourself.
What’s more fun than just sitting with friends and having a good old chicken roast. Well, the latest update with the Cheer Park helps with that. You will be able to find a sitting area in the Cheer Park where you can sit and have chicken.
This Sums up most of the important and fun features of Cheer Park. Enjoy!
