New PUBG Update Adds New Tactical Map Markers

PUBG PC Update #29 patch notes were released Wednesday, introducing a handy new tool for players looking to up their tactics in games.

PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS now has a Tactical Map Marker system that can be used to help coordinate strategy during a game. The markers add a new level of strategy to the game and also helps players that aren't queued up together communicate and effectively play any given game.

Here's everything you need to know about the new Tactical Map Markers in PUBG.
