PUBG 12.2 Patch Update
The new 12.2 patch update brings some really new mechanics in the game along with a new 8×8 map, Taego. This map features two new mechanics called: Comeback BR and Self AED.
Comeback BR is a Taego exclusive mechanic allowing players to battle it out in a separate arena against players who die in the first blue zone phase. If you managed to stay alive long enough, a helicopter will pick you up and drop you back in Taego mainland in phase 3.
Self-AED is another Taego exclusive mechanic allowing players to self revive themselves. This is a world-loot item that can be used in Solo and Squad matches only.
Along with all these, two new weapons, a new car, bug fixes, performance improvements, UI/UX changes have been added to the game. However, what we are focusing on in this article, is the new Whispers chat feature that will be coming in the new patch update.
PUBG 12.2 Patch Update: Whispers Chat system
This new Chat System in the PUBG 12.2 patch update will allow players to send private messages to their friends on their list, provided they are online. However, if you’re in a match and receive whispers from your friends, you will only be able to respond with selectable preset messages.
Here are all the details about the new Whispers Chat System:
- To access the Whisper mode, press Enter to open the chat while playing in a match.
- The Whisper mode is available in Normal, Ranked, Training Arcade, and Custom Matches. Also, you will be given an option to hide Whispers while in-game if you want to avoid distractions.
- If you wish to bind the existing action of the Enter key to another key, all you need to do is Go to Settings and then visit the Key Binding setting and change the bind to another key.
- Also, messages will not be accessible in Custom Match Esports Mode and sometimes in the game loading period.
- However, if you send inappropriate messages or advertisements, you could be liable for a chat ban. So, use the feature carefully to avoid any bans.
