Lastest PUBG PC Update Focuses On Bugfixes, FPS Drops & Balance Changes

PUBG

A new PC update is live on PUBG, with it bringing a host of bugfixes and balance changes. The team at Bluehole Studio Inc. took a close look at the gameplay that their team and fans have been experiencing in update #12 to find out what needed to be improved. Based on their findings, there were some bugs that needed to be cleared out and some important changes to help balance out the game. This includes making some weapon specific modifications and item adjustments available to certain guns that weren’t previously available.

Within the notes, the team addressed that and their focus for the future:

We’ve seen a lot of concern from many of you about overall performance. Addressing FPS drops is our top priority, and we hope to have more updates to address performance improvements soon. For now, the team will be trying out fixes throughout this patch cycle. Thanks for staying patient with us in the meantime.”

Check out all the details on the PUBG PC update #13, via Steam:

Gameplay
  • Both the Lightweight Grip and Half Grip can now be attached to the Vector.
  • Some minor weapon balance adjustments:

    • Decreased the spread of shotgun pellets.
    • Shotgun chokes and duckbills are now less effective at decreasing spread (so the effective spread for a shotgun with a choke or duckbill will be similar to before)
