    Are you a PUBG Battlegrounds player? Here is an important update for you. PUBG Battlegrounds will undergo maintenance next week. Yes, PUBG has informed about the same in a release. "The Battlegrounds will undergo maintenance next week. For this patch, we will be implementing updates mainly to tackle bugs, make improvements, and enhance the anti-cheat system," it said. "We also took a lot of the feedback we've received from the community and focused on making improvements for controls, squad kills, and sound systems in this patch as well," the company added.

    It can be noted that recently PUBG: New State also underwent an update for android users in order to strengthen anti-cheating measures. The game went under maintenance on November 23 in order to enhance the measures to detect unauthorized 3rd party programs in real time and to secure potential weaknesses that could be exploited and lead to the creation of unauthorized 3rd party programs.

    While talking about the upcoming maintenance activity for PUBG Battlegrounds the company has shared certain details. Check out the details about the upcoming patch here:

    Anti-Cheat

    A function will be added where players that are using unauthorized 3rd party programs and get kicked from a match as a result will now be marked as such in the kill feed. "We've strengthened our anti-cheat measures by having real-time bans and restrictions take place. We're planning on adding this function so that Survivors can better see the bans that are taking place," the company said.

    Krafton, the developer of the game, will also enhance the restrictions, suspensions, and bans being levied on unauthorized 3rd party program usage.

    Improvements to the Controls Systems

    "We've fixed issues related to the gyroscope and controls that were reported to us by numerous Survivors," it said.

    Changes and improvements to Gyroscope

    Krafton will fix the issue where the horizontal and vertical sensitivities of the gyroscope did not match. It will add inverted controls for gyroscope.

    Fixes for bugs involving controls

    The developer will fix an issue where sometimes only the joystick controls would work when using control scheme options #1 and #2. It will fix an issue where the joystick on the left side of the screen would sometimes not work when using control scheme option #1. It will also fix an issue where an additional touch control could be inputted while using the Free Perspective button in control scheme option #1 and will fix an issue where the Auto-Run field would appear very small.

    Fixes for bugs involving Squad Kills

    The company said, "We understand that there are cases of Survivors deliberately killing their squadmates, which removes the fun and is quite frustrating for those affected. Because of this, we plan on making improvements to squad kills by using feedback we received from the community. Currently, we are developing a system that punishes Survivors who were judged to have deliberately killed a squadmate by temporarily restricting them from squad matchmaking. This will be implemented into the game in December."

    "After this update, Survivors will not take damage when they are hit by a vehicle being driven by a squadmate. In the future, we will continue to investigate and take strong measures against trolling and deliberate actions that negatively affect the experience of other Survivors on the Battlegrounds," it added.

    Changes and improvements to sound systems

    The company will fix an issue where the sounds of footsteps were not consistent in certain situations. "We implemented the first round of improvements for in-game sound systems in the Nov. 18 patch. In this patch, we plan on implementing the second round of improvements," the company said.

    QoL improvements

    A full sprint character motion will be added for smoother movement and to improve overall character motion.

    Bug fixes

    1. Will fix an issue where characters would bounce back to their original positions when walking or running on stairs or the edge of buildings.

    2. Will fix an issue where scope sights would intermittently be displayed abnormally.

    3. Will fix an issue where a grey ball would sometimes appear in the lobby.

    4. [iOS] Will fix an issue where the graphical quality of the game would look very low when accessing the game via deep links.

    5. Will fix an issue where colliding with a building while parachuting would inflict an abnormally high amount of damage.

    6. Other bug fixes.
