PUBG Update #13: New Crate and Parachute Skin, Minor Balance Changes and Bugfixes

PUBG Corp. released the 13th update for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, which introduced a new crate Aviator and a new parachute skin "Bengal Tiger" and focused mainly on bugfixing and minor balance changes. The list of changes can be seen below.

Patch Notes

Gameplay
  • Both the Lightweight Grip and Half Grip can now be attached to the Vector.
  • Some minor weapon balance adjustments:
    • First shot from the M16A4 now has less recoil.
    • Decreased the spread of shotgun pellets.
    • Shotgun chokes and duckbills are now less effective at decreasing spread (so the effective spread for a shotgun with a choke or duckbill will be similar to before)
UI/UX
  • CUSTOMIZATION > GEAR tab has been added. Go here to equip parachute skins.
  • Tooltips for weapon attachments have been edited to make them more intuitive.
Localization
  • Added support for Ukrainian. Thank you to all the Ukrainian players who participated in the translation process!
  • Game lobby now supports multiple languages.
    • Multiple languages will be applied to various lobby components such as lobby menus (Play, Customization, Store, etc.), the options menu, and crates
    • 19 different languages are supported
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where certain buildings in Miramar were shown with default textures
  • Fixed some walls in Miramar that could be partially passed through
  • Removed the white mark that appeared alongside the aircraft icon on the minimap
  • Scope reticle settings should no longer reset when weapons are dropped and picked up again
  • We’ve improved the holographic sight’s reticle. It’s now the same size as a character silhouette seen from 100m away
  • Certain animations on the buggy and minibus have been fixed
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes caused characters to sit at odd angles if entering into vehicles from a prone position on a sloped surface
  • Fixed an issue causing red dot and holo sight reticles to get smaller and blurry when swapping weapons
  • ”Damage-received” sounds should no longer play after winning a game
