The developers of PUBG have announced that the next major update, which is scheduled for March 27th, will nerf the newly added Flare Guns. The flare guns will become rarer, while the loot inside the packages for Squads mode will be decreased. Besides that, the developers will reduce the plane volume and remove map icon and text indicating incoming package. The update will be available on the Test Server on March 20th.
Flare Guns were added to the game with Update 26, released on February 20th. A major part of community criticized the addition as it negatively affected the gameplay and created a lot of distraction.
