The Best Guide to Win on the PUBG Miramar Map (Desert Map)

Miramar Map is the earliest update of the PUBG. PUBG added a new stage Miramar with a whole new appearance, weapons and vehicles. If you want to get a grip on this new deserted Miramar map, then here is everything you’ll need to be a pro player of Miramar.

pubg

Here you’ll know about:

•    More about Miramar Map

•    Best landing and starting locations

•    Guidance for playing on Miramar Map

•    Best Weapons and Vehicles locations

More about Miramar map

Just like the other previous PUBG locations, in the beginning, you’ll feel like a prison on the Miramar map. If you land first time on this map, you’ll find yourself on a deserted prison. However, the map is not entirely of desert sand, at the south of Miramar map, you’ll see water also. There is also an island at the southern side desert with a town located there. The southern side is connected with two bridges to the mainland. And at the Middle East side area of the Miramar desert, you’ll get a massive area of Los Leones town. There are also Military camps in this Map at the top right corner. The middle area of Miramar desert looks like a Cemetery area. Where the Miramar is a desert area, it has Desert Mountain and small rocks throughout the map.

Best landing and starting locations

•    Cemetery (Middle) area- As the cemetery area is on the middle of the map. Then it is always the security that you’re in the first circle. And in the shacks of the cemetery, you can search for Weapons and other equipment. So, it is actually an excellent place to land.

•    Los Leones- area with the largest town of the map is guaranteed to get various biggest weapons.  This area is always the focus of the circle.

•    San Marcos- the location of the San Marcos is near the centre of the desert. The region has a sufficient amount of tall buildings where you can search for the weapons and equipment and get ready before the circle has come.

•    Military base- as like the other previous map’s Military camp, Miramar’s Military base is obviously the best place to get some best weapons such as snipers, shotguns, and many more. But it is at the NE corner of the map so reaching there and surviving through the shrinking circle is challenging.

•    Crater Fields and Chumacera both are also the best starting locations.

Guidance for playing on Miramar Map

If you’re looking for high powered weapons, then Military camp is a good place for them. The area of the north-west border of Miramar Petro Glyphs and Studio and El Pozo south-east area holds many amazing assets, and the area is also warzone. Chumacera town is filled with partially constructed towers so they are a good place for snipers and long ranged weapons. Miramar desert doesn’t have many trees to cover you. So, you can use the Desert Mountains and rocks to cover you. If you want to be out in the open area, then it is better to use a single shot or long-range weapons like Win-94, M16, and SCAR-L.

Best Weapons and Vehicles locations

Even the Map is more massive or different but similar to the other previous Maps the basic rule is also followed in Miramar. Equipment, Weapons and Vehicles are always found within the buildings area like Military area, Cemetery area, Los Leones, etc. They are never outside of this.

Mortal Kombat 11: Latest Gameplay Reveals Kabal and D’Vorah as New Characters for the Title

NetherRealm Studios is out with a confirmation for the inclusion of Kabal and D’Vorah to the upcoming Mortal Kombat 11.

Mortal Kombat 11 launch was confirmed at The Game Awards 2018, and since then, NetherRealm has been revealing a new character every week.

But a recent Kombat Kast live stream revealed complete gameplay for the Kabal character showcasing his move set and in-game interactions.

3496500-kombat-kast-kabal1-nologo

Ed Boon, co-creator at NetherRealm confirmed the inclusion of communities favorite Kabal character and stated he would be the part of the roster for the upcoming Mortal Kombat 11.

The live stream gameplay and the trailer showcases the Kabal’s insane meat hooks mechanics and mind-numbing fatality, also the trailer revealed the Kabal’s Nomad Dash which is quite useful to evade the deadly blows from the foe.

The gameplay also denoted Kabal running off from the side of the screen and appearing on the other side dealing bone crushing meat hook blow to the opponent.

The Kabal character also possesses a buzz Saw Blade to counter hits from enemies and balance out movement and space for better stability for the character.

 The trailer also showcased the Fatality for this character, which includes Kabal hooking up the enemy with his Meat Hook and running in supersonic speeds while dragging the enemy and ultimately splitting the foe in half.

Ed Boon also mentioned that another character is also set to join the roster and fans would freak out as they get to know the character, but he didn’t disclose the name of this character during the Kombat Kast.

Although as the Xbox stream went live, Ed Boon stated that the D’Vorah would also join the roster in the Mortal Kombat 11. D’Vorah has already featured in the Mortal Kombat X and is now reintroduced for the Mortal Kombat 11.

Fans of Mortal Kombat would remember this character having yellow colored skin with a hoody and a jacket which provided the character with much more human-like structure.

Still, as she uses her moves and skills in the combat like using carapace or releasing a hoard of creepy crawlies on the foe, this time D’Vorah will have its hoody and jacket removed, and actual face of her will be revealed.  Players will be able to acknowledge this new character completely only when a trailer for D’Vorah would be revealed, but still, it has created a lot of buzz amongst the community members and the fans of Mortal Kombat.

Mayhem: A Supercomputer to Tackle Cybersecurity Vulnerabilities

Cybersecurity and threats management is a major worry of companies. There is not a single complete security arrangement that can detect, exploit and dispatch security threats alone. White-hatters are continuously armoring the industry from different cyber-attacks, but they are also not untouched from human errors and mistakes. So the industry is very desperately looking for an automatic and fault proof protection.

security_image-696x464

Pentagon autonomous challenge came with a brand new endeavor that stands out on every single aspect of concern related to cybersecurity. Mayhem supercomputer, built by ForAllSecure enterprises is the new face that can handle any kind of security threat. The winner crown of DARPA security challenge justifies its claim.  It establishes itself in the World’s largest summit of hackers by participating in “Flags to Capture” competition and grasp the attention of all with its big and several meter long apparatus. It requires a huge amount of electricity and water cooler to cool itself from the warmth of 300-kilowatt electricity.

DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) has been conducting such attempt to protect the software and application and select the most efficient software program that can run in almost every kind of device of daily use and make them safe and attack proof.

Enhancement of technology and implementation of the Internet of Things (IoT) makes it more crucial and urgent as inter-device communication enhances the widespread of the virus and threats injection from one device to another.

Working of Mayhem mega machine

It primarily works on two concepts that are fuzzing and symbolic execution.

The combined effort of two individual approaches to analyze and dispatch the duty is the core mechanism of fuzzing and symbolic execution. If we have to say it in simple words, Symbolic execution creates an equation for each logic that is implemented in an attacking program and fetches the solution of a bug accordingly.

On the other hand, fuzzing is the process of permutation and combination of information under a program, so that program gets crashed and in this way, it determines the vulnerable nature and weakness of a program. It works quite perfectly in determining the solution and weakness of most frequent program. Fuzzing is inserting the unknown set of data continuously into program’s string till the equation designed by symbolic execution reaches to its solution.

Fuzzing is like hit and trial method with tremendous speed. It guesses about the solution very smartly as well as very speedily. Symbolic execution is similar to solving a mathematical equation and knows that which input can spoil the attacking software system and inserting that very solution into the software to dismiss the attack.
