About Ed Thorn

Ed joined Metabomb in May 2017 and puts together many guides across the site.

Our PUBG Sanhok Forty-Fivers LTM guide contains details of the event schedule, available queues, and all of the special event rules.

PUBG's latest limited-time mode, Sanhok Forty-Fivers, restricts the weapon pool to anything that's compatible with blue-boxed .45 ammunition. This means you're restricted to Tommy Guns, Win94s, R45s, P1911s and any form of throwable. To top things off, the weather is set to Overcast to make things even more unpredictable and force everyone into some sketchy close quarters fights.

As the name suggests, Sanhok Forty-Fivers is restricted to PUBG's latest map, Sanhok. All of the weapons that you're able to use require getting into scrappy close range fights, or serious accuracy with the tricky Win94. The compact island of Sanhok plays directly into this playstyle and it should make for an extremely hectic limited-time event - we can't wait to get stuck in.

In the sections below we've put together everything you need to know about this new event mode and it's all-important ruleset. We've also highlighted the event schedule, what numbers you'll be able to queue in and a few other things too.

Sanhok Forty-Fivers Start and End Date/Times

Starts

Sanhok Forty-Fivers begins on 2nd August at 7:00PM PST. That's 3rd August 4:00 AM CEST and 11:00AM KST for those of you in other parts of the world.

Ends

The event comes to an end on 5th August 7:00 PM PST or 6th August 4:00AM CEST or 11:00AM KST.
