Latest PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds patch on Xbox One increases damage to vehicles

Nearly two months have passed since PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds released into Xbox Game Preview and the developer has been hard at work fine-tuning the experience for players. Today’s latest update, the 7th so far, tweaks some minor gameplay elements. One of the most noteworthy changes is that vehicles now take more damage.

The full patch notes posted over on PUBG’s forums can be read below. You can view PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ previous update, which added an auto-run ability, here.


We’ve listened to your feedback and further modified the damage players can inflict on vehicles, increasing areas of vulnerability. This includes:

  • Increased damage to the vehicle body, and significant damage to the wheels when targeted with gunfire
  • Increased vehicle damage when successfully targeted with a grenade
  • Both driver and passenger will suffer increased injuries from crashing into objects or other vehicles (Dacia, UAZ, and Buggy)
  • Slight reduction to player damage when being struck by a vehicle


  • Continued optimization to controller input lag
  • Visual quality of the reticle is improved for Xbox One (Red Dot, Holographic, and 2x Sight)

Bug fixes

  • The sensitivity setting for 4x Scope is now also applied to the permanent scope on the VSS
  • Auto-run (double-clicking the left stick) is disabled when aiming down sights
  • Players can now use the D-Pad while in the map view without switching melee, pistol, or throwing weapons
  • Removing the marker from the map when pressing (Y) will no longer switch primary/secondary weapons
  • Fixed issue where the crosshair is not correctly displayed after players reconnect to a game session
