The Dacia 1300 is a sedan vehicle in BATTLEGROUNDS. This vehicle was first shown during the Vehicles dev log, but it wasn't introduced until the Alpha 2 Test of 2016.

Summary[edit | edit source]

The Dacia can appear in a range of different colors. Should the tires take too much damage, they will pop, reducing speed and handling performance.

Being a sedan, it has subpar off-road performance, with poorer traction and slower acceleration compared to when driving over clear dirt paths or roads. Care must be taken when at high speeds as hard cornering will make it liable to rollovers. The engine also does not have enough power to pull the vehicle up a hill when stationary, so it is advisable that speed is maintained when driving up hills.

On level roads, the Dacia's speed can average at around 85-90 km/h, holding the boost key (left shift by default) will bring the vehicle to a top speed of 110-115 km/h at the cost of increased fuel consumption. The Dacia also has a horn (left mouse button by default) that can be used to attract teammates attention, or attention of other players.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Dacia's inclusion in the game is to Top Gear, with the Dacia constantly mentioned in that show and PLAYERUNKNOWN having been a fan of the show, as well a tribute to ARMA II's Lada.
  • The car is based on the Communist Romania's (Romanian Socialist Republic) licensed Renault 12 (Dacia 1300 1969-1982 model). It was considered rather large in its time, with its 1289 cc engine and its 4 seats. With a front-engine, front-wheel-drive layout and either 4-speed or 5-speed manual transmission, it is capable of reaching speeds of up to 145 km/h.
  • The tires can be destroyed by merely punching them, providing a quieter option of ensuring other players cannot use the vehicle once it has outlived its usefulness.
