After the successful run on beta and amazing response from the Test Servers, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has been officially launched on PC. PUBGs Update v.1.0 has brought many changes to the game including new vehicles, weapons, client optimizations, server optimization, weapon changes, weapon nerfs/buffs, and much more. Some of the highlights of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds update v.1.0 include:
Client Optimization will help in reducing the memory usage, reducing the lag issues when multiple players are present, improved character animations, as well as reduced terrain loading time.
With the update 1.0, 5 new weapons have been introduced to the game. Starting DP-28 which will be spawned in the map, using 7.62mm magazine, highly long-range effective gun. Next we have AUG A3 can only be looted from Care Packages. It uses 5.56mm magazine with high fire-rate and low recoil.
R45 will be spawned on the map, using .45 ammo with high accuracy and faster reload speed. WIN 94 uses .45 ammo and is highly recommended with players having good accuracy. Finally, Sawed-Off will be spawned all over the map using 12-Gauge shot and 2 shells can be loaded. Its range is very limited but it can be highly effective at short-range.
In addition to weapons, the update has also introduced several new vehicles. First of all, the van has low mobility and can sustain a decent amount of damage before going down. It is six seater and Miramar – one of the maps – exclusive only. Pickup is a four-seater off road jeep and can only be seen in Miramar only. Aquarail a two-seater water motor, with high mobility.
Vaulting and climbing has been introduced where players can now jump and leap over obstacles. Hit areas have been changed now and neck is protected by the helmet. SKS and Mini 14 have been nerfed and Kar98 has been buffed.
