Game Preview PUBG Update for Xbox One Makes Driving Riskier

Xbox One users need to download a new PUBG update that is available in the Game Preview set-up. The update brings many changes and improvements to the game, one such change has made driving riskier in Battlegrounds. According to the patch notes, drivers and passengers are going to experience increased damage when crashing into objects and other cars.

Moreover, grenades will cause more damage to the vehicles and its passengers. Same is the case when targeted with gunfire as there is now increased damage to the vehicle body and tires. Over 4 million Xbox One players would now have to be much more careful while driving.


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 the reticle is improved for Xbox One (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
