PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds PC 1.0 Update #2

Last month, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds have released their first ever update after leaving the Early Access period on PC. PUBG Corp. has dropped the second update for their insanely popular multiplayer online battle royale game as a part of their solidarity to the project and it brings some new contents as well as features on the table. This update mostly focuses on improving the game performance and a fair play environment.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds PC 1.0 Update #2 is currently on test servers and one of the prominent features of this PUBG update is a system which is called the replay report tool. This will allow the players to report about any other participants suspected of cheating in the game so that they can be taken care of and this is the developers' effort to create the game environment fairer. They urged everyone to properly implement the tool to help them identify any active cheats through a post on Steam.

A few more tweaks have been done for the betterment of the in game performance and many bugs are fixed but those will not compromise any gameplay elements. Such as the visible distance when players are parachuting down to the island will be reduced to improve server performance. Reportedly, the La Bendita on Miramar desert map will have more objects to help players find better cover during the battle royale.

Another little change that PUBG Corp. has made is that they have changed the design of the in-game energy drink. From the very beginning of the game, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds added an energy drink called Hot Bull, which is a clear imitation of the Red Bull beverage. The latest update also changed the design of the cans and it is branded with a new logo of a mustached man instead of two bulls butting heads. So, players may feel a little downed as the in-game Red Bull SWAG will be no more!

There are two types of loot boxes containing Biker and Desperado crate cosmetic items. They are now on test servers and players will be given 100,000 BP and six Early Bird keys to try them out. However, PUBG Corp. assures that since they are all for testing purpose, BP and items will not be transferable to live accounts. Once the testing phase is over, the loot crates and replay report tool will be brought into the live game should they prove to be in stable condition.
