Survivor Pass: Badlands

The Survivor Pass is back with new rewards, missions, and improved systems! Do not miss the new community missions where players can join together to discover the hidden story of Miramar!

Community Mission System

Whether you have purchased Premium Pass or not, all players can join hands to fill up the Community accomplishment gauge and claim in-game skin rewards and also unravel the hidden stories of Miramar.

  • The mission gauge can be filled by finding new mystery collectibles on the Battlegrounds.
    • Players who find and open special Cardboard Boxes will be able to loot one of the 3 different objects.
    • When collected, they are reflected on the Community mission accomplishment gauge as follows:
      • Disc piece: Counts as 1
      • Broken disc: Counts as 2
      • Old DVD: Counts as 3
    • You can check how many discs you have in the session in the inventory.
    • Check your contribution points to the community missions from the community mission tab of Survivor Pass. 

Season Missions

  • There are two tracks of Season Missions: Melee and Badlands.
    • Melee Track: Combined missions consisting of 2 missions each (4 missions in total) using melee weapons, which reward 2 melee weapon skins.
    • Badlands Track: Combined missions consisting of 4 missions each (8 missions in total), which reward 2 Miramar related skins.

Progression Missions

  • Progression Missions give a great amount of XP progressing through missions throughout Season 5. It’s composed of 3 mission tracks and one track for achieving certain milestones.
    • Track 1, 2: A series of 10 missions with gradually increasing difficulty, open for all players.
    • Track 3: A series of 12 mission with gradually increasing difficulty for players with the Premium Pass.
    • Milestone: Missions for reaching certain achievements related to daily, weekly and challenge missions.
      • Example: Complete 100 total daily missions

Challenge Missions

  • These are high-level challenge missions with which reward using designated weapons.
    • First mission of each track: Whether you have purchased Premium Pass or not, earn a t-shirt reward by achieving certain Survivor Pass levels (5, 10, 15, 20, 25).
    • Second mission of each track: Complete weapon specific missions while wearing the t-shirt obtained from the first mission.
    • Remaining missions in each track: Various weapon specific missions.

Level-up items for Premium pass mission rewards

  • Added level-up items for one of premium pass mission rewards.
  • These items are non-marketable, and they will be activated when the next season(Season 6) starts.

Survivor Title System

Survivor Title System Season 5 arrives with changes to the Survivor Points (SP) system.

  • Rewards for Survivor Title System Season 4 will be granted at the beginning of Season 5.
  • SP will be soft-reset, with your performance in Season 4 counting towards your starting SP in Season 5.
  • Survival Point rebalance:
    • Novice (1 point) ~ Expert (5000 points)
      • To enable players to climb titles easier, we have increased the amount of SP gained each match.
      • In this SP bracket, players are not able to lose points, just like previous season.
    • Survivor (Over 6000 points)
      • If player marks lower than 30% in overall result both considering kills and placement, player will lose title points
      • SP cannot be lowered below 6000.

Developers Note: After observing the current system, we have found out that a player still can achieve lone survivor rank just by playing lots of matches with poor results and skills. We have witnessed more and more players abusing the system to achieve lone survivor title, resulting in diluted honor and values of the lone survivor title. Therefore, from season 5, we have introduced a system which will deduct SP points if player fails to mark good results from the match. We hope that this new system will restore the honor(status) of players who are worthy for the title, the lone survivor. Thank you for your feedback.

 

Our Take

PUBG continues to be a favorite among the SG crew as we frequently dive back in and always find it to offer a unique experience among the shooters in the industry. It looks like some nice refreshers in Season 5 and of the four maps, it’s widely agreed that Miramar needed the most work so we’re excited on that front as well!
