PUBG Console Update 7.1 goes live early next week, kicking off the game's seventh season with a slew of new additions. Some are more popular than others (looking at you, bots) but no one knows yet how any will play out. Ahead of PUBG Console Update 7.1, here are the three most exciting prospective changes.

1. Return of Vikendi

In terms of atmosphere, it was always hard to beat Vikendi. Unfortunately, the map also showed its fair share of problems, leading PUBG Corp to remove it from the game temporarily. Now Vikendi is back with new areas, remodeled old ones, and a moving train to keep things spicy.

2. The Mosin-Nagant

The Mosin-Nagant has a storied history in video games, and its addition to PUBG is an interesting one. It will be the first weapon to share all of its stats with another, in this case the Kar98k. If all goes well, it should add variety to PUBG without diluting the loot pool unnecessarily.

3. M249 Nerf

The M249 has been overpowered ever since PUBG Corp took it out of crates and made it available as normal loot. Its relatively low recoil, combined with high damage and a never-ending ammo belt made it unfairly strong. PUBG Corp will address that with a huge increase to its recoil in PUBG Console Update 7.1.
