‘PUBG’ Gets Flare Gun Miramar Event Mode - Spawns, Tips & More

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds fans might want to check out the game’s latest event mode. Here’s everything we know about the new flare gun, how to use it and where to find it. We’ve also got the exact time for when these short festivities plan to end.

 

WHAT IS THIS WEEK’S ‘PUBG’ EVENT MODE?

This week’s event mode doesn’t have a fancy name, but it’s comprised of three main elements:  Miramar third-person gameplay, four-person squads and a brand-new flare gun item. As always, BP will be awarded for performance. For now the flare gun is exclusive to this limited-time mode, but there’s a possibility it will become a permanent fixture in the future.

 

 

WHERE IS THE FLARE GUN LOCATED?

The event mode’s official news post mentions that flare guns can be found in small single-story shacks throughout the map. There are obviously a limited number of guns and several possible locations, so don’t expect to find one in every spot you look. Just search around the areas of the map that are full of tiny shacks and you’ll likely find one. If you’re looking in anything other than a shack you’re wasting your time.

HOW DO I USE THE FLARE GUN IN ‘PUBG?’

Setting off a flare is pretty easy. Just equip the gun as a sidearm and aim it at the sky with a high enough altitude to reach at least 200 meters. If you don’t reach that threshold, the care package won’t come. Flare guns drop two weapons, Level 3 armor and other traditional care package supplies. Flares can easily alert enemies, so only pick secluded spots to fire. (Or be prepared to fight.)

 

WHEN DOES ‘PUBG’S FLARE GUN EVENT END?

It’s expected to end April 1 at 10 p.m. EDT.

That’s all there is to know about PUBG’s flare gun event mode. It’s a bit more exciting than last week’s eight-person squads, and it offers a possible picture of what future PUBG Test Server updates might contain.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is available now on PC and Xbox One Game Preview. The event mode is exclusive to PC.
