Read the changes at the bottom of this post.

Hey everyone,

Last week, we announced FIX PUBG, an initiative to tackle some of the game’s long-standing bugs and quality of life requests. Update 19 addressed a slew of those already and for Update 20, we’re adding a section to the patch notes to specifically cover FIX PUBG issues. These patch notes will show up in their normal sections as well.

As usual, these updates will be implemented to the test server first and will be applied to the live server at a later date. Here’s what’s coming to the test server today:

  • We’re implementing FIX PUBG related improvements and new content
  • Adding a new AR, the Beryl M762, to all maps for wider weapon diversity and strategy.
  • Adding a new Sanhok exclusive vehicle, the scooter!
    • Both the scooter and 2-seater motorbike can be found on Sanhok
  • Also we’re introducing more new functions such as TPP camera position setting and reporting system improvements.
  • Decreased the minimum required players for starting a custom match from 10 to 8
  • Please note there may be additional changes made before this patch comes to live servers

An update on the Tukshai: The Tukshai is an upcoming Sanhok exclusive three-wheeled vehicle which we’d originally planned to release in the month after Sanhok came to live servers. Due to higher priority development tasks and the extra fine tuning required to make driving experience of the three-wheeled Tukshai feel just right, it will now be released in September.
