PUBG Offers Players Free Cosmetic Item, 20,000 BP After Server Issues
The PC version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has been suffering from a significant number of server connectivity and matchmaking issues these past days, something PUBG Corp has been rather quiet about given its ongoing initiative. Thankfully the silence has finally been broken, as the developer has issued a new statement apologizing to its PC players, while also offering up some sweet, sweet compensation.
The news comes by way of the official PUBG Twitter account, which recently tweeted out the previously mentioned apology. “We sincerely apologize for the negative experience caused by our recent server connectivity and matchmaking related issues,” the tweet begins. “As compensation, we will be gifting all PC players the Black Beanie with Headphones item along with 20,000 BP. Log in to PUBG by 5pm PDT on Oct 23 to claim.” The tweet – as well as a preview of the item – can be found below:

This is a hefty bit of compensation given that the server issues only lasted a few days. 20,000 BP on its own is a lot of the game’s currency, and adding in an item that was previously only available through the game’s ‘Camo Set’ crate – inspired by PGI 2018 – is quite the boon to PC players looking for a sweet new hat. Just keep in mind that PC players will need to log in to the game by 5pm PDT on October 23 to claim the goods.
In related news, PUBG Corp recently released the patch notes of PC Update #23, which introduces a new weapon and some much needed blue zone changes. The update also implements lobby patch notes, as well as numerous tweaks and bug fixes. Click here for the full patch notes.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is now available for PC and Xbox One.
