Upcoming PUBG Console Patch Will Add Weapon Mastery System

PUBG Corporation has announced that it’ll be releasing a console patch for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on June 27, 2019, which will add various community requested features including a tactical marker communications system and the Weapon Mastery system.

Official details are as follows:

  • Weapon Mastery
    • New progression feature in PUBG with unique, awesome, and free rewards
    • New avenue for players to improve their weapon skills
  • Tactical Marker
    • The map now has six marker options to choose from depending on the situation
  • Second Erangel Loot Spawn Rebalance
    • Increased spawn rate of AR, DMR and SR
    • The featured map will be changed to Erangel from Sanhok with the June Update
  • Vikendi Loot Spawn Rebalance
    • Blue Zone adjustment
    • Increased spawn rate of AR, DMR and SR (especially SR)
  • Auto Equip Attachments
    • We understand that handling attachments with the controller can sometimes be difficult and players would sometimes avoid early combat due to having insufficient time to equip attachments
    • To solve for this, we created an auto equip attachment feature to reduce time when equipping needed attachments. Less time in your inventory means more time for battle!
  • Controller Preset C
    • Like the above auto equip feature, we are focusing on improving overall player experience during battles
    • On the controller, leaning is configured to thumbsticks and we understand it can sometimes affect your movement and aim
    • Controller Preset C moves the bindings of leaning from the thumbsticks to the bumper buttons, as well as making a number of other suggested changes. More details coming soon!

Full patch notes will be released in due course so stay tuned.
