Console Update 11.2 – Patch Notes

Update 11.2 is coming to Live Servers this week!

Our first Survivor Pass of the season has arrived, Survivor Pass: Pajama Party! Jump in-game to check out all the slumber party themed rewards, alongside a slew of new missions to complete as you progress through the pass.

Erangel is receiving changes to both of its iconic bridges, allowing you more options to mount your assault or set up defenses. For those who like to set up a tent and bridge camp (you know who you are), there’s now additional cover to make use of while you patiently wait for the “brrr” of that incoming enemy-loaded UAZ.

Multiple performance and quality of life improvements are included in this update, alongside side a handful of bug fixes. Read on for all the details.

Live Maintenance Schedule:

  • May 6 1 PM – 7 PM KST
  • May 5 9 PM – May 6 3 AM PDT
  • May 6 6 AM – 12 PM CEST

11.2 Patch report

 

World : Erangel Updates

Military Base Bridges

Late last year, we asked players which locations on Erangel could be improved, or otherwise changed to improve gameplay. After reading your responses across multiple platforms, including previous feedback and suggestions, this update we’ve focused on introducing changes to the main chokepoints between the Erangel mainland and Sosnovka Island; the East and West bridges.

This minor rework brings structural changes to the bridges and includes the addition of new defendable positions, in addition to catwalks underneath to help fend off attacks, including those from the water. These catwalks also double as a new avenue of attack to mount an assault on those pesky bridge campers. So do your little turn on the catwalk.

  • The two bridges connecting Sosnovka Island and the Erangel mainland have had major changes, including additional cover and widening of the bridges.

  • Catwalks have also been added, providing additional avenues to both defend and attack from.

  • The dump truck has been repositioned.

Other Map Changes

  • 4th Anniversary Graffiti Contest graffiti has been removed.

Survivor Pass: Pajama Party

Turn your slumber party into a slaughter party with Survivor Pass: Pajama Party!

This pass kicks off our new way of releasing passes, which are no longer linked in time and theme to the season. This gives us more options for content, duration, and even how many passes we choose to release per year. The passes will still follow similar mechanics with missions and rewards, so pick yours up and start unlocking today!

  • Survivor Pass: Pajama Party can be purchased within two different item packages.
    • PAJAMA PARTY WEAPON PACK (990 G-Coin)
      • Premium Pass + The Big Sleep – AUG weapon skin
    • PAJAMA PARTY WEAPON AND LEVEL PACK (3270 G-Coin)

    • Don’t forget to make use of your coupons in the Coupon Shop before the season ends, as they’re unable to be used afterwards.

Gameplay & Balance

Reputation System Balance Adjustment

Since Update 10.2 when the Reputation System was introduced, we’ve been closely monitoring your feedback. We’ve looked closely at aspects of the system which have caused frustration and made additional changes to prevent players from abusing the report mechanic, which had allowed players acting maliciously to lower another player’s reputation unfairly.

  • Spamming multiple reports through the replays system no longer unfairly impacts the targeted player’s reputation level compared to regular reports.
  • Set an upper limit to the amount of reputation loss per match to prevent misuse, especially in situations where multiple pre-made squad members report their random teammate.

We have also made the following changes to speed up the process of improving your reputation with good behavior:

  • Increased the potential number of reputation points available for player’s with a reputation level 1 or below.
    • Also increased available reputation points for players at reputation level 4.

We expect these changes to improve your overall experience with the reputation system and allow us to better highlight players in the community who play by the rules and keep it friendly while doing so. Keep up the good work and please continue to share your feedback with us.

To prevent potential gaming of the system, we won’t be sharing all details and intricacies of how reputation progression/loss functions.

Weapon Modeling Update

  • The Flash Hider model on the SLR has had major improvements to its visuals.

UI/UX Improvements

Match History & Match Report Improvements

Having the option to deep dive into your replays and match history can be great to help analyze and improve your gameplay. We want to ensure these tools are simple to use and easy to understand.

EU Server Relocation

As mentioned in a previous announcement, we went through a lot of testing to improve the gameplay experience in the EU. As a result, moving the EU server currently located in Ireland to Paris, France may impact pings for a small number of players in or near Ireland, but the overall ping will be much improved. Therefore, with the 11.2 update, half of the Irish servers will be moved to France, and if the results are good, we will move the remaining half to Paris.

PUBG LABS: Respawn Royale

This round of PUBG LABS utilizes two different gameplay changes to create a frantic experience for squads on Paramo. The first of which is a 500% damage increase across the board for all weapons and throwables in order to create a one-shot-kill scenario. But fear not, though dying may be easy, so is getting back into the game!

In Respawn Royale, your defeated squadmates will automatically rejoin the fight after their 100 second death timer has counted down. All you need to do is stay alive as a squad until that happens! If at least 1 squad member is still standing when a player’s death timer completes, they will rejoin the fight but be careful – if your squad is wiped completely, you’ll all be eliminated from the match.

Respawn Royale takes place on Paramo with you and up to 7 other squads. To help keep the focus on the action, we’ve also eliminated weapon looting and added the choice of three different spawn kits. This kit can be changed each time you respawn, so keep an eye on the situation your remaining team members find themselves in. The Bluezone will also still function as normal, so keep on the move!

Weapon Damage

In Respawn Royale, the damage of firearms, melee weapons, and throwables are increased by 500% in order to provide a one-shot one-kill experience.
