: You can find the details for this event on the announcement page [url=https://steamcommunity.com/ogg/578080/announcements/detail/2719564281921338716]here[/url].

Update 8.2 – Patch Notes

We’re bringing some new toys to the Battlegrounds in update 8.2, along with some visual improvements to a few weapons, a nostalgia hit in the main menu, and more!

Update 8.2 is planned to hit the Test Server on August 12, before coming to live servers on August 19 KST.

New Weapon: MG3

The latest weapon available in Battlegrounds Care Packages is the fast firing MG3 Light Machine Gun. With two different rates of fire, a bipod for stability, tracer rounds to help you keep track of your spray, and increased weapon damage to vehicles, theres a new reason to fight over the big red box.

  • Spawns in Care Packages on all maps, in Normal Matches only
    • Not currently available in Ranked Matches
  • The MG3 has two firing modes which change the fire rate between 660 rpm and 990 rpm
  • Chambered for 7.62mm, holds 75 rounds and has a muzzle velocity of 820 m/s
  • 1.25x damage multiplier when shooting vehicles
  • Tracer rounds are fired every 5th round, as well as for the final 10 bullets of each magazine, letting you know that ammo is running low.
    • Tracer rounds can only be seen by the shooter
  • Supports optical attachments up to the 6x Scope
  • The MG3 has an attached bipod, deploying automatically when prone to greatly improve weapon stability
New Throwable: Decoy Grenade

Disorient your enemies and cover your movements with the new Decoy Grenade. Available as world loot on Sanhok, the Decoy Grenade will make fake firing sounds for about 10 seconds after thrown, giving you a few moments to make your move.

The Decoy Grenade is a new throwable which mimics gunshot sounds. Purposely made to be used as a tactical item to distract and outwit your opponents.

  • Available only on Sanhok in Normal Matches, as a rare world spawn item
    • Not available in Ranked Mode
  • Decoy grenades can be cooked to reduce their detonation time out of the hand and are thrown just like other grenades
    • Upon detonation, Decoy Grenades emit gunshot sounds for 10 seconds and eject shell casings to add to the guise of real gunfire
  • Beware, they’re not waterproof! Dropping one into water will disable its effects
  • Decoy Grenades don’t currently spawn in Training Mode
Gameplay

Weapon Remodel and Retexture

M416, SKS and Kar98k has been remodeled from scratch to improve their visual quality. Along with their visual update, weapon sounds of these weapons has been overhauled.

Care Package Updates

  • C4 has been added to Care Packages on all maps, except Karakin
  • MG3 has been added to Care Packages on all maps
    • The C4 and MG3 are not available in Ranked Mode

LMG (Light Machine Gun) Balance Adjustment

  • Vehicle damage multipliers have been added to LMGs.
    • MG3: x 1.25
    • DP28 : 1.15x
    • M249: 1.10x
  • Camera shake when firing LMGs while prone has been reduced
    • There has been no changes made to the weapon recoil. However, players may feel the weapon is more stable due to reduced camera shake.
World

Erangel Docks

  • Four docks have been added to Erangel
    • Two docks have been added to existing wharves, one at Novorepnoye and the other at Ferry Pier
    • The southern beaches of the Erangel mainland and Sosnovka Island have also had docks added
Quality of Life Improvements

Throwables Wheel Menu Improvements

The Throwables Wheel has been updated to better facilitate multiple recent additions to the PUBG throwable arsenal.

  • The wheel now has 6 slots and allows access to all throwables
    • 4 slots are permanent locations for the most common throwables; Frag Grenade, Molotov Cocktail, Smoke Grenade and Stun Grenade
    •  
    • 2 slots are dynamic. The dynamic slot on the right side holds either Sticky bomb or C4 and the one on the left can hold either Decoy grenade or Spike Trap
      • If your inventory has both the Sticky Bomb and C4, the wheel will prioritize the Sticky Bomb. With Decoy grenade and Spike Trap, the Decoy grenade takes priority
      • If you have a Sticky Bomb or Decoy equipped in your throwables slot, the dynamic slot on the wheel will display the other corresponding item, C4 or Spike Trap

Helmet Hide Function

Sometimes you just want to look good for YOU. For those moments, you can now toggle off your helmet to maintain your default costume pieces, even after you protect your noggin with a fine Level 3 helmet. This functionality is purely cosmetic, and other players will still see you with a helmet on, but you’ll at least get the satisfaction of enjoying your chicken dinner in full Alex the Dinosaur costume glory.

  • When Helmet Hide is enabled, your hoodie, hat or other head covering will remain visible even when wearing a helmet.
    • To all other players, you’ll still be seen wearing, equipping and otherwise interacting with your helmet.
    • This is a local visual change, only showing for players who enable it.
  • Helmet Hide is disabled by default. You can enable it in the Settings, or by clicking the option in the Inventory.
  • Equipable slots for Head and Helmet are now separated.
    • Equipping a helmet now won’t automatically drop your hat, or other cosmetic item in the head slot.

  • Improved font loading process to reduce game stuttering/hitching
  • Optimized the process for loading character data to reduce instances of stuttering/hitching and ensure a more stable framerate

Season 8 – Now Live!

PUBG Season 8 is now live!

Our first release, Update 8.1, features the completely remastered Sanhok map, full of new locations, reworked favorites, a brand new visual overhaul, and a new way to gear up on the savage island with the juggernaut of the jungle, the Loot Truck!

We put heavy focus on bringing Sanhok to the upper tiers of our map visuals but also addressed some of your longstanding concerns about the island’s locations, topography, and pain points. We’re proud of what we’ve come up with here and are looking forward to hearing what you think as well!

Alongside the new season comes a brand new Survivor Pass as well! Pick up Survivor Pass: Payback and start earning great new looks, including the faces and costumes of the mysterious Sanhok 4 showcased in our recent lore drop.

This season, you’ll also earn additional XP towards your pass just by playing, so pick yours up today and start unlocking your rewards!
