  • [TDM] Fixed an issue where Blue Zone damage is not dealt to players that stand up after crouching or proning outside the playable area

As mentioned above, this update doesn't do much to reinvent the PUBG console experience as players know it. It does, however, seek to satisfy a PUBG console audience that has long been disappointed by the game's technical performance compared to its PC version. Most of these adjustments are fairly meaningless, but there's a big change when it comes to Blue Zone damage in TDM. It goes without saying that any bug that allows players to avoid being damaged by the zone can be easily exploited by cheaters. As such, we suspect this flaw was the main reason this hotfix was pushed so quickly.

This update proceeds the console version of the 6.3 update, which brought the explosive Pazerfaust weapon to the game. It also introduced a few key weapon balance changes to make guns like the Tommy Gun and UMP more viable in the current meta. These features have been appreciated by fans, but the execution of the patch wasn't flawless. With this update, hopefully many listed and unlisted problems have been solved.

PUBG is available now on PC, Xbox One and PS4. This update is exclusive to Xbox One and PS4.
