Player Unknown’s Battleground or PUBG for short has been struggling to compete against Fortnite for the past year. PUBG used to be the most popular Battle Royale game in the world, but everything changed when Fortnite launched. Fortnite is free to play and this gives it a big advantage over PUBG. However, the developers behind PUBG are not giving up that easy.
Competing Against Fortnite
Even though competing against Fortnite is proving to be a more difficult task than anticipated, the team behind PUBG not giving up. PUBG keeps receiving new updates that refresh the game’s content and give veteran players a reason to come back for more while making the game more attractive towards new players as well. With that being said, PUBG has just received a new update and it’s a big one measuring in at 9.5GB.
Hit Boxes are Being Changed
The one thing that PUBG has and Fortnite lacks is good gunplay. Aiming and snipping enemies feels way better in PUBG than in Fortnite and the developers are trying to improve this by altering the hit boxes.
“The penetration system works for the head, torso, and waist only. If a bullet penetrates the forearm, but no vulnerable body part is behind it, only the forearm damage will be applied,” said PUBG’s developers about the latest update.
Leaving the hit boxes aside, PUBG fans should be happy to know that the game will now feature dynamic weather. This means that the weather will be constantly changing, especially in maps like Sanhok where rain can start pouring at any time. Moreover, the new update also adds sunsets to Miaramar.
The dynamic weather will play a major role in PUBG’s fun gunplay since clever players can use it to blind their enemies by running towards sunsets. Not just that, but fog can also be used as cover.
