PUBG was the first ever Battle Royale game to become a major success, but it’s placed as the most popular shooter game in the world was soon taken by Fortnite. PUBG’s developers have been working hard to create new features, content and in-game mechanics to help the game compete against Fortnite which is currently considered as a cultural phenomenon.
Introducing Dynamic Weather
With that being said, the developers who are in charge of PUBG have recently released a new update for the PC version of the game and it introduces dynamic weather to the Erangel and Miramar maps alongside other cool features. We should also mention that the river banks of Erangel have now been modified to cover around the Sosnovka Military base.
Changing Hit Boxes
The biggest issue that PUBG has are hitboxes. Players keep complaining that they get killed by their enemies when the bullets shouldn’t even hit them, but it looks like the developers have been listening to the feedback. The reason we are saying this is because the new update changes how the hit boxes work and bullets have been altered to hit flailing arms first instead of registering the damage directly to the body.
“This penetration system works for the head, torso, and waist only. If a bullet penetrates the forearm, but no vulnerable body part is behind it, only the forearm damage will be applied,” said the developers in a recent blogpost.
One of the coolest things to be added alongside the new update is targeted directly to Miaramar. PUBG fans should be happy to know that this map will now feature sunsets and that the dynamic weather will play an important role because the sunset will blind players who are looking at it.
