A new weapon has been revealed for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ new desert map: the Winchester model 1894 rifle.
The Win94, as it will be called in game, is a lever-action repeating rifle traditionally used by hunters. It will be a world spawn weapon and an exclusive to the upcoming desert map.
Along with the previously revealed double barrel shotgun, it seems like the weapons confirmed so far for the desert map have sort of a rustic vibe to them when compared to the more modern weapons of the game’s original map, Erangel.
Fans will get their first look at the desert map in action during The Game Awards this Thursday night. The map will be available to try out on the PUBG test server in the next round of testing, possibly as early as next week.
PUBG also revealed a pickup truck as a new vehicle for the desert map, so players can look forward to a number of exclusive features as well as getting to know a new location when the map goes live.
