PUBG Update 10.2 brings a new vehicle, ranked changes and a reputation system to PUBG

The PUBG 10.2 console update has been rolled out for every platform and brings with it a host of changes and additions. The standout addition of this patch is the new Reputation System. Along with this, there is also a new vehicle which has been added and changes to ranked mode have been made.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds now has a reputation system, ranking players on a six-point scale for how toxic (zero) or well behaved (five) they are. The scale keeps progressing as you play matches until you do not exhibit any toxic behaviour that attracts a negative report towards you.

Leaving an ongoing match will also affect the scale negatively. The only way to increase your reputation will be by playing games and not being a jerk in them. All players will commence at Level 2 and the rating will be displayed in the Team Finder.

Alongside the new reputation system, the PUBG's 10.2 Update also brings with it a new vehicle — the Coupe RB, a speedy vintage roadster that is faster than everything except PUBG’s Motorbike. The new vehicle packs a seating capacity of 2. The new vehicle is really fast as it clocks a top speed of 150 km/h.

The 10.2 update will also instill some changes to the ranked mode penalties. The new update will ensure that jerks leaving the game in between should be punished harshly hence the penalty waived has been increased considerably.

Leaver penalties will be waived for players who leave within 5 minutes after the plane takes off if the player:

  • chooses for matchmaking to find them teammates AND

  • the plane takes off with an incomplete team (team of fewer than 4 players in Ranked squad mode), AND

  • a member of the player’s pre-made team hasn’t left the match before the plane leaves.
