Loot Trucks

Aside from visual changes, Sanhok is getting a new "Loot Truck" mechanic.

These vehicles move around the map and drop loot when hit by weapons, allowing you to grab fresh gear at the risk of giving away your position.

They'll drop even more loot if you blow them up, too, but that'll likely require a squad effort.

New Weapons

The weapons on board those loot trucks are known as "Confiscated Weapons", and are already pre-loaded with attachments and weapon skins.

Check out "Julie's Kar98" below, with a 6x scope, bullet loops, and suppressor. You can find out more here.

Battle Pass

In a long-awaited change, the new Payback Battle Pass will factor team placement into the ranked points awarded.

Also, if you're playing in Ranked Mode, you'll be able to find the remastered Vikendi map in the playlist.
