Oh goodie, now the long arse wait to download the whole game again.

Hey everyone,

We’re excited to finally bring the PTS content to the live servers!

On October 25, we will be updating live servers to Update #2, which will add the Training Mode, two new weapons, and two new vehicles to PUBG, along with several quality of life and bug fixes.

Full patch notes below!

Maintenance Schedule

PDT: October 25 1:00AM-3:00AM

CEST: October 25 10:00AM-12:00PM

Training Mode

Added a Training Mode where you can practice all aspects of PUBG gameplay

The Training Mode map is 2x2 in size

You can join through matchmaking by clicking on the “Training Mode” button in the lobby.

When there are more than 5 players in the matchmaking queue, the session will start immediately. Players will continue to join open sessions for up to 5 minutes after they start. (Up to 20 per session)

If there are less than 5 players in the matchmaking queue, matchmaking will continue for 5 minutes

If there are still less than 5 players after 5 minutes, the session will start with the original number of players present and other players cannot join the session.

Total play time is 30 minutes (e.g. in case of number 1, where you immediately enter a session, you have 5 minutes where other players can join the session + regular training mode playing time of 25 minutes)

Players cannot drop below 1hp in Training mode

New Weapon: Beryl M762

Added the Beryl M762, which is a new versatile Assault Rifle which spawns on Erangel, Miramar, and Sanhok.

Beryl M762 uses 7.62mm ammunition and can load up to 30 rounds (40 with an extended magazine)

The Beryl has upper and lower rails, allowing for scopes and a grip.

It has lower per bullet damage than the AKM, but a higher firing rate, meaning higher DPS if you can control the kick.

New Weapon: MK47 Mutant

Added a new AR weapon: the MK47 Mutant

MK47 Mutant can be acquired on all maps (Erangel, Miramar, Sanhok) through world spawn

MK47 Mutant is an AR weapon using 7.62mm bullets and has a 20 round capacity, which can be upgraded to 30 rounds with an extended magazine.

The Mutant has 2 firing modes: single shot and 2-round burst

Almost all types of attachments can be used with the MK47, but it has no stock slot

New Sanhok-Exclusive Vehicle: Scooter

Added a new two-seat vehicle, the Scooter, which is exclusive to Sanhok

Both the scooter and 2-seater motorbike can be found on Sanhok

Compared to the current motorbike, the Scooter has lower speed and an increased turning circle, but the same HP.

New Sanhok Exclusive Vehicle: Tukshai

Added a new vehicle that will be exclusive to the Sanhok map

The Tukshai is a 3 person vehicle that substitutes the UAZ, Dacia and Minibus

The Tukshai is slower compared to the previous vehicles, but fits perfectly with Sahnok’s environment

Cosmetics

Halloween Skins

The below items have been added in STORE -> ITEMS available from Oct 25 3am PDT/12pm CEST - Nov 20 6pm PT/Nov 21 3am CET

Maniacal Butcher Set - 10,000 BP

Killer Clown Set - 1,800 G-Coin

Ancient Mummy Set - 1,600 G-Coin

Bloody Nurse Set - 2,100 G-Coin

Sinister Skull Mask - 7,000 BP

Pumpkin RIP-cord - 500 G-Coin

Hunted Pumpkin Mask - Free upon lobby login until Nov 6 4pm PT/Nov 7 1am CET

These sets are also sold in individual pieces.

Restructuring of the BP System

Previously, we offered BP rewards based only on your ranking. Now, we’ve restructured the system to take into account both play time and ranking.

Rewards have been restructured to equalize the differences in BP efficiency based on playing time for each Map and Mode.

We’ve changed team rewards to be shared:

You will no longer receive 4 times the BP because you were playing alone in a squad game

Gameplay

Bluezone effect has been changed

Added ‘TPP Aim Camera Position’ to options

Reset to Right Shoulder (default setting)

Camera will always be positioned above the character’s right shoulder

Reset to Left Shoulder

Camera will always be positioned above the character’s left shoulder

Latest Peek Shoulder

Camera position automatically moves to the direction you last leaned

Latest Aim Shoulder

Camera remains in the last ADS direction

In this setting, the camera position won’t be changed by leaning while not in ADS or scoping

[Right shoulder camera / Left shoulder camera]

Added a new attachment: the Laser Sight

Bullet spread is reduced when hip firing and soft-aiming

The Laser Sight fits on weapons with a lower rail slot available, taking up the grip slot.

Added the improved Marker/Ping System first introduced for testing on the 8/1 test server update

Using (R) button, you can create a marker where you are aiming on the compass at the top of the screen (not visible in the world)

All team members can see this marker on the compass

After setting the marker, there is a 2 second cooldown before you can mark again

The marker on the compass will automatically disappear after 5 seconds

When the ping markers overlap, the closest located marker will be shown on top.

Increased maximum sensitivity (10 → 20)

UI/UX

Added a key guide to the loading screen tips (XBOX image will be applied soon)

Improved the design of the map markers

This is thanks to feedback that some players were confusing the previous marker design with the player icon

Reporting

You can now report a player for Teaming, Gameplay interference, Verbal abuse.

This can be done after the match is over

Performance

Optimized weather effects to increase framerate - especially during rain

Optimized cloud effects during free falling to increase framerate

Improved performance by adjusting on-hit effects for various materials

Improved server and client performance by optimizing the inner composition of the plane

Increased the quality of optimization to reduce desync.

Bug Fixes

Lost Connection to Host

We are testing out some potential fixes related to the "Lost Connection to Host" error, and in this update we rolled out a fix for an issue with data loading with skins that was causing this bug. Please leave us your feedback and reports if you continue to experience this bug. Thank you for your patience as we actively work to fix this issue.

Fixed the issue where a character who is driving in a vehicle is created in an unspecified location

Fixed the issue where the gun of the person you are spectating is sometimes not rendered, causing problems when the gun goes into ADS mode

Fixed the issue where weapons are sometimes shown in locations different from where the character is holding them

Fixed the issue where approaching a window with glass and throwing a throwable could sometimes cause the camera to temporarily zoom in and out

Fixed the issue where approaching a corpse while lying down could sometimes cause the camera to zoom in

Fixed the issue where sometimes a character standing at the very edge of the sea on Sanhok would be shown as falling out of the sky

Fixed the issue where the Bluezone UI timer occasionally decreases by 2 seconds

Fixed the issue where an underwater character is unable to move to land because the terrain is shown as stuttering

Fixed the issue where colliding with an object while driving in a UAZ deals comparatively more damage than other vehicles

Fixed the issue where the firing mode of a gun that has been dropped and picked up again is reset to default settings

Fixed the issue where the vaulting action was not working properly with certain building windows in Sanhok

Fixed the issue where an afterimage sometimes remains on other players' screen when repeatedly arming/unarming

Fixed the issue where the AR compensator on the SLR was not reducing the horizontal recoil

Fixed the issue where frame drop occured when the weather was rainy and the character was swimming in the water when the perspective changed from under to above water

Fixed the issue where the HP gauge was displayed red in certain conditions

Fixed an issue where grenade impact sounds were not played when interacting with certain surfaces on Sanhok

Fixed the issue where the exact direction of other player's footstep sound was hard to comprehend

And now I need to save up the BP for the butcher set. Honest to god wasted thousands of strawberry floating BP buying the weapon skins crate and getting the same shot bunch of skins that I've exchanged for pittance in BP back.

I'm glad BP points are now given for time played rather than where you placed.

Not surprised it's coming soon. Presumably the Xbox exclusivity will be over and they'll want it out as close to COD as possible otherwise that could eat a bug chunk of their userbase.

I'm a little bit confused by this. If you download it for free will you be locked out when it stops being free or have you got it free for life?

I clicked the link. It says 'You own this game' which I'm pretty sure means free for life. The timing is no accident, Microsoft probably want to be able to say that they have the biggest console install base.

No, it's just free for the weekend. Microsoft run free weekends for games all the time.

EDIT - Hang on, I might be wrong there. Just clicked through too and it does indeed seem to be a full purchase. :-)
