PUBG PC Update 17.1 Lands; Fixes Some Revive Issues and Matchmaking Problems

A new update arrives to the PC test servers.

The undoubtedly the best platform to experience the third-person battle experience for PUBG, PC has just received a new update on the test servers. In addition to the usual bug fixes and tweaks, players can expect a couple of new changes of which include an improved off-road driving performance for the pickup truck and tweaks for iron sight and crossbow zeroing.

Patch Changes

Gameplay

  • Improved off-road driving performance of the pickup truck.
  • The iron sight default zeroing for all SMGs is now 100m.
  • The crossbow’s zeroing will always be 25m even with a scope attached.

Bugfixes

  • Fixed an issue with the wrong 4x scope (ACOG) reticle was used on the SLR. A cross type reticle is now used, instead of the chevron.
  • Fixed an issue preventing you from being able to aim right away after switching over from the driver’s seat.

There’s one other bugfix which we’ll also ship before this update comes to live servers: It has to do with an issue that’s sometimes preventing players from being able to revive their teammates. This bug was unfortunately introduced because of new code related to revivals that helps us better detect certain cheats. We generally don’t mention changes of this nature in the patch notes because we don’t want to give away too much information to cheaters.

Additionally, MMR Matchmaking for the Sanhok map is going to come on live servers soon.

Finally, after receiving a lot of feedback from players who love Sanhok, we’re also going to turn on MMR matchmaking for the map on live servers soon. We agree with the feedback we’ve received from many of you that this will make the map a more meaningful and competitive experience.

Another notable change will be fixing revive issues.
