Vikendi map - PUBG

Vikendi is the fourth playable map introduced in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. It is an isolated Northern resort island in the shadow of Mount Kreznic, home to a wide variety of attractions, businesses, and villages. Locations include the spacecraft launch site Cosmodrome, Dino Park, Castle, and a winery. Vikendi is as beautiful as it is dangerous and survivors treading these bitter cold lands will have to watch their backs even more closely as the fresh snow is perfect for leaving behind footprints. The days are long on Vikendi, but it won’t be long before the sun sets and the auroras fill the moonlit skies.

Overview

  • Vikendi is 6x6km map. Gameplay is quicker than Erangel and Miramar, but offers an arguably more tactical experience than Sanhok.
  • Players can throw snowballs while waiting to board the plane in the starting area
  • Vehicles will be more slippery in snow or icy areas. Acceleration on icy terrain is slow and you lose more general vehicle control as you speed up
  • Footprints and vehicle tracks will appear as players travel in snow-covered areas.
    • Keep in mind that footprints and tracks in the snow don’t stay around forever.

Redzone

  • The center of the red zone spawns outside of the play zone
  • The smaller the play zone, the smaller the red zone

Bluezone

  • The first circle of every game is much smaller than other maps, but subsequent circle sizes change less drastically.
    • This facilitates more blue zone variety and unique experiences.
  • Similar strategies work on Vikendi to Erangel and Miramar for the first three phases, but the zones will close slower starting from phase 4, similar to Sanhok.

Item Spawn Balance

  • The overall item spawn rate is at a midpoint between maps – offering a unique place between the spawn rates of Erangel and Sanhok.
    • Level 3 helmets spawn in the world
    • Level 3 vests spawn more often than other maps
    • Smoke Grenades are spawned at a higher rate compared to other throwables

Snowmobile

Snowmobile - PUBG

The Snowmobile only spawns in Vikendi. It seats 2 players and performs much better than other vehicles on snow and ice, but is more difficult to drive on other terrain.

Castle

Castle - PUBG

The Castle, complete with a moat formed by Vikendi’s largest river, is a standing reminder of Vikendi’s past. Well protected and with a vantage point across much of the surrounding land, the Castle is a statement of power from a time long past. Even today, survivors holed up in the Castle are a force to be dealt with as its high towers provide a heavy advantage against a would-be siege.

Cement Factory

Cement Factory - PUBG

Cosmodrome

Cosmodrome - PUBG

Cosmodrome and its rocket are a stark reminder that not all dreams come true. An abandoned space center with huge maintenance hangars, control centers, and the remains of one of Vikendi’s tallest structures, Cosmodrome still leaves visitors with a strong impression: everything on Vikendi eventually dies, even dreams.

Dino Park

Dino Park - PUBG

Dino Park is the perfect example of how prosperous Vikendi used to be. A prehistoric amusement park filled with various attractions including a roller coaster, bumper cars, and a thrilling dino maze, Dino Park was touted as fun for the whole family, as long as they were willing to drop some serious money on overpriced dino plushies in the gift shop.

Goroka

Goroka - PUBG

Goroka is a unique lakeside town near central Vikendi. At the base of Mount Kreznic, the frigid temperatures of the island keep the lake frozen nearly all year round that once supported a small industry of ice fishermen. Nowadays, the ice is much more dangerous to be on with the high ground around it a prime spot for an ambush.

Podvosto

Podvosto - PUBG

A traditional river city, Podvosto had larger town comforts such as bakeries and cafes, yet the “right at home” feeling of a small town. The old Podvosto Walkway was the original bridge connecting the two parts of this city, but in later years became a popular destination for young couples to walk together before marriage in a symbolic display of their upcoming life together.

Trevno

Trevno - PUBG

Located on the northeastern coast of Vikendi, Trevno was a place where the poorer families of Vikendi went to live. Many of those who were lucky enough to have steady work were employed by the Zupan company, who hand stitched every dinosaur plushie sold by Dino Park. Being relatively far away from the island’s other destinations and with only their old lighthouse as a tourist spot, Trevno was never high on must-see lists. The low tourism income led to infrastructure in need of repairs and a large pipeline explosion didn’t make tourists feel much safer.

Volnova

Volnova - PUBG

Volnova was as big and bustling of a city as they come in Vikendi, with its first buildings dating back to the Middle Ages. Heritage and history were important to Volnova’s residents, but they were always eager to welcome a new restaurant or cafe. Centrally located between some of Vikendi’s main attractions, Volnova’s several hotels were always full, and the popularity of the city led to many buildings being built on top of each other. Even as part of a battleground, Volnova is still a popular destination where danger can strike from any direction.

Winery

Winery - PUBG

The Dolinšek family took advantage of one of Vikendi’s warmest spots to set up their business and grow grapes for their traditional wine. They remained a popular tourist destination for wealthy people doing the “world tour of wine” and had daily showings and tastings in their heated underground lounge. The family business never quite recovered from a mysterious collapse of their lounge during one of these tours, which caused the deaths of several wealthy patrons.
