PUBG Corp has today pushed through a new patch for the Xbox One game preview version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
This is the 8th update that PUBG has received since it went live on Xbox One via the Xbox Game Preview program in December. The patch mainly fixes a variety of bugs that began occurring after the previous patch went live and caused some players to have issues with vaulting and car disappearance.
Perhaps the biggest change in this update, however, is in regards to the damage output done by vehicles. In the last update for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, the amount of damage that vehicles do upon splattering other players was nerfed, along with the damage that cars can receive before exploding. After consulting the PUBG community, PUBG Corp has reverted the damage that vehicles do upon hitting others to where it was before.
You can find the full patch notes for today’s update at the bottom of the page. For more on PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on Xbox One, be sure to check out the new Xbox One S bundle that includes PUBG and will be releasing later this month.
- We received a lot of great feedback following the changes made to vehicle/player damage. We continue to tune and balance this element of gameplay, and are therefore reverting back to increased damage if a player is struck by a vehicle.

The camera will now remain in the correct location following player death
