PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has released Patch 22 on the PC after two weeks in testing and is highlighted by a new rank system that borrows many elements from PUBG Mobile, along with adding a number of requested features to the game.

Check out the change log below:

Ranks, progression, regions

Skin trading

  • You can now trade in items for those of a higher tier
  • You can trade up multiple same-tier items and BP into one next-tier skin item
  • Trade up requires ten items, and the maximum tier you can get is up to rare(blue) while the system is in testing. We’ll look to open up the system further once we’re satisfied with the balance of the system but please note that any BP costs associated with this system may change.
