PUBG 15.1 update: changes in Sanhok

In the new PUBG 15.1 update, Sanhok will feature a Bootcamp for players who want a dynamic gameplay experience. According to PUBG, the last Bootcamp didn’t receive appreciation because it was too crowded and complex for desirable tactical plays. Therefore, the new Bootcamp will undergo a complete transformation, including a new central tower, new angels, layouts, buildings, and better open spaces. 

The space between the second and third floors have been reduced to narrow down players taking advantage of the third floor. The update made a whole lot of changes to windows, making them less wide, giving less view to the player standing on the second and third floors. The watchtowers have been moved to both north and south. This will help players focus on the battle and not the watchtowers.
