PUBG Xbox One #5 / PS4 #2 Patch Notes

All PUBG players should be ready for the subsequent content update for PUBG Consoles (Xbox One/PS4) on March 5. The players of these two console platforms can easily explore this update focusing on enhancing the performances as well as fixing some bugs, errors, especially things relating to Vikendi.

Aside from that, both Xbox One and PS4 platforms will have new items added to the game via this update, such as the new weapon called Bizon and a new attachment named the Canted Sight. Another awesome thing is a brand new weather setting on Vikendi called Moonlight! This will allow you to defeat your foes in a night easily.

Don’t forget to check out the “Level 20 Up” ticket that will be automatically given out into the inventory for all players logging into the game from the time that the maintenance meets its conclusion until April 5. Make sure you remember that this kind of ticket will be applied to the incoming pass right after the conclusion of the current Survival Pass: Vikendi. For those who have already obtained level 100 or do not want to utilize the ticket on the current pass, they can totally save it for the later pass.

Check out the full patch notes for Xbox One and PS4 platforms below here!

Maintenance Schedule

  • Start: March 4 11PM PST / March 5 8AM CET
  • End: March 5 3AM PST / 12PM CET

New Weapon: Bizon

New Weapon: Bizon

  • The Bizon is a brand new SMG weapon added to the game:
    • It’s kind of exclusive to Vikendi and Erangel.
    • It utilizes 9mm ammunition and keeps 53 rounds by default.
    • It is only able to take muzzle as well as sight attachments.
      • It does not accept grips or magazines.

  • Canted Sight was added to the game as a brand new attachment.
  • It is a new scope for weapons with a secondary scope slot.

  • There are some interactions, like collecting an item, jumping into a vehicle, opening a door, they will not be put out of the action while in ADS.

Gameplay
