PUBG PC update 13 has been deployed on the game’s test servers and focuses on balance tweaks and minor bug fixes.

Compared to the game’s previous update, patch #12, this build is rather small, and developer Bluehole writes that the team is currently exploring tweaks to the M16A4 , which will likely be implemented in a later update.

Aside from offering bug fixes and balance tweaks, the game’s development team writes to be aware of PUBG’s performance issues and hopes to offer additional updates to improve performance soon.

“We’ve seen a lot of concern from many of you about overall performance”, Bluehole writes. “Addressing FPS drops is our top priority, and we hope to have more updates to address performance improvements soon. For now, the team will be trying out fixes throughout this patch cycle. Thanks for staying patient with us in the meantime.”

We’ve included the release notes for update 13 down below:
