Developer Bluehole plans to deploy a PUBG patch that offers various changes to weapon balance and attachments.

As with all updates, the patch will first be tested on the game’s test servers before being deployed on the live servers.

According to our research, only a few specific types of weapons (ARs) are used in most situations. We believe the choice about which gun to use should be based on personal preference and its effectiveness in any given situation, rather than simply “which gun is strongest.” Our goal is to make it so no one gun will feel objectively better than the others.

Alongside the weapon balance changes, we plan to make some changes to weapon attachments. Again, the goal here is to provide you with a wider array of attachment options so you can choose one that best fits your combat situation (rather than any one “best” attachment).

Apart from the weapon and attachments adjustments, changes to the level 3 three helmet will also be made according to the game’s development team.

“It’s a game-changing item that can impact the outcome of a match—basically, it gives you an extra life in situations where a headshot would otherwise kill you”, community coordinator Hawkinz wrote on the official PUBG forums. “We don’t want luck alone to determine who gets items like this, so we’re removing it from the normal loot spawn tables and limiting it to care packages only.”

More details about the upcoming patch will be shared once it’s been made ready to be rolled out to the live servers.
