The live version of PUBG: Mobile has finally received the long-awaited Karakin map. This (2 x 2km) might not be what PUBG: Mobile players are used to, offering dense areas and it is, of course, way smaller than previous Battle Royale maps. The new map can quickly become chaotic, and if you are unsure which the best drop locations are in Karakin, we've got you covered with five suggestions.
PUBG: Mobile Karakin - 5 best drop locations
It goes without saying that if you are good enough, you can win on PUBG: Mobile's Karakin map no matter where you drop into the action.
However, some Karakin drop locations are simply better than others, depending on your playstyle and what you want to do.
At first glance, some might think Karakin is a mini-Miramar, this couldn't be further from the truth. Karakin is absolutely packed with locations to explore, including underground tunnels to fight in, hidden loot caches and passageways to hide in.
There's also the Black Zone mechanic, which can and will level buildings quickly. This means you should always be on the move and watch out for the purple highlight on your map.
Taking all this into consideration, we've marked the five best drop locations on Karakin on the map below.

Tunnels (#5 on map)
While named areas including all the compounds can lead to the underground, the centre of the map allows for a less risky way to get in, loot up and hide. This is a very safe drop location.
