A PUBG flare gun has been added to the game, but it is currently only available to use when playing in custom matches. Players who find a flare gun will be able to call in special supply drops. The special supply drops are superior than normal drops, as they contain more loot, and often two weapons or pieces of high-level armor.
The PUBG flare gun allows players to choose a location by firing the flare into the air. After a short moment, a drop will fall in the chosen area.
The March Update added new effects to enhance the realism of gun scopes and introduced Flareguns in Custom Games. We are planning a wider test of Flareguns in the near future. https://t.co/FqXK5mah20 pic.twitter.com/Mpaw3DbhXn
