PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

A brand new update for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on Xbox One has been released and it brings some big gameplay changes, optimizations and bug fixes. The main gameplay changes are to do with vehicle gameplay mechanics and these changes are bound to make it more difficult to use vehicles in the game.

Vehicles will now take increased damage from gunfire and players will also suffer increased injuries if the vehicle they are driving crashes. On the other hand, a player who is hit by a moving vehicle will now suffer decreased damage. Along with these changes, some optimizations and bug fixes have also been included with this update. You can read the full list of changes below.


We’ve listened to your feedback and further modified the damage players can inflict on vehicles, increasing areas of vulnerability. This includes:

  • Increased damage to the vehicle body, and significant damage to the wheels when targeted with gunfire
  • Increased vehicle damage when successfully targeted with a grenade
  • Both driver and passenger will suffer increased injuries from crashing into objects or other vehicles (Dacia, UAZ, and Buggy)
  • Slight reduction to player damage when being struck by a vehicle


  • Continued optimization to controller input lag
  • Visual quality of reticle is improved (Red Dot, Holographic, and 2x Sight)

Bug fixes

  • Resolved issue where inventory may highlight the wrong column when looting
  • The sensitivity setting for 4x Scope is now also applied to the permanent scope on the VSS
  • Auto-run (double-clicking the left stick) is disabled when aiming down sights
  • Players can now use the D-Pad while in the map view without switching melee, pistol, or throwing weapons
  • Removing the marker from the map when pressing (Y) will no longer switch primary/secondary weapons
  • Fixed issue where the crosshair is not correctly displayed after players reconnect to a game session

It’s nice to see that PUBG Corp. is hard at work in trying to address the many issues that the game is currently facing and let’s hope that they continue doing so. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is currently available on Xbox One and PC.
