Community Weekly Post - August Week 2

Check out this week's recap from the PUBG Xbox Team!

Hello everyone,

Welcome to this week’s Community Weekly Post.

This week’s post will be on the shorter side, as we didn’t have any major content updates. We deployed a hotfix on August 7 that we’ll quickly summarize below, as well as give you a teaser of what’s to come on the PTS!


This was a small quality of life hotfix that improved directional sprinting with the newly introduced analog movement. We also repackaged files to help load into matches more efficiently (thus the larger patch size), so our players should be experiencing faster loading times.

Full patch notes: HERE


We know you’ve probably been wondering when our next PTS content update will be. While we can’t give you an exact date just yet, know that it will be coming soon!

Here’s a few things you can expect to see on our PTS soon:

  • Limb Penetration
    • Limb Penetration is finally coming! If you’re unsure of what that means, here’s a handy little graphic to demonstrate how damage is applied if a player’s forearm takes a bullet while blocking their head.
  • Dynamic Weather
  • UI/UX QoL updates
  • Performance updates
  • And more!

We also wanted to go over a couple of bugs that we’re currently looking into:

  • Analog Movement – We found a bug where you will stop sprinting if you are sprinting at certain angles. This has been fixed and will be included in the next PTS update.
  • Low Sound Issues – If you are experiencing issues with the sound being too low, please completely exit/shut down any audio or music apps. Even if a song is not playing, the audio mix settings are still applied. By exiting the app, this should help with the low sound issue for most players.

Thanks for your patience while we continue to work through bugs and quality of life improvements. Keep those bug reports and feedback coming, and stay tuned for more news regarding the next PTS update!
