Here's what to expect in the upcoming update. PUBG

PUBG announced that something new is arriving to Karakin in its next update along with the usual rebalancing to weapons and bug fixes. Update 6.3 is also going to implement a change to Team Deathmatch.

PUBG revealed that they have been sneaking Panzerfaust into Season 6, but this time they're finally giving everyone a chance to put it in their hands. Here are some details with this new weapon:

  • Karakin exclusive.
  • Uncommon world spawn found across the map.
  • Guaranteed to be in every airdrop.
  • The Panzerfaust warhead explodes upon impact, but can also be blown up mid air
    • The damage radius is 6m from the point of impact.
    • The explosion can deal splash damage through thin walls and objects, up to a short distance.
    • Can be used to breach specific walls on Karakin, much like the Sticky Bomb.
    • The warhead explodes mid air, before impact if damaged by explosions or shot by a bullet.
  • One time use.
    • Once the warhead is fired, the Panzerfaust tube is going to be discarded and cannot be picked back up.
  • Firing the warhead produces a backblast.
    • The backblast damages those within a 3m zone behind the weapon.
  • Zeroing options at 60, 100 (default) and 150 meters.

While this may indeed be a good option, one main drawback is that the Panzerfaust takes up a primary weapon slot, which limits a player's options.

We mentioned Team Deathmatch and this is something that many players have request. Particularly, Invincibility is now going to be removed instantly when engaging in combat by firing a weapon or throwing a grenade. Other changes coming to Team Deathmatch include Rich Presence which lets players tell their Discord and Steam friends when they're fragging in TDM. In addition, the Hotkey for player reports is now disabled for one second after death. This is to prevent any accidental activation.

Finally, here are the weapon changes to expect in Update 6.3:

  • Tommy Gun
    • Added upper rail to attach Red Dot and Holo Sights.
    • Increased rate of fire from 700 to 750.
    • Increased firing accuracy.
      • The bullet deviation penalty has been lowered when firing for an extended duration.
    • Increased moving accuracy.
    • Decreased recoil when firing for an extended duration.
      • This change is due to the increased rate of fire.
  • M249​
    • Added Stock attachment slot.
      • A Tactical Stock can be equipped to improve weapon stability.
    • Added Magazine attachment​ slot.
      • Lowered standard ammo capacity to 75.
      • magazine now holds 150 with an extended mag.
    • Decreased base bullet damage from 45 to 40.
    • Increased recoil.
    • Found on Miramar and Erangel.
    • Semi-rare spawn.
  • UMP-45
    • Increased base bullet damage​ from 39 to 41.
    • Increased rate of fire from 650 to 670.
    • Increased muzzle velocity from 300 to 360.
      • The increase to the speed at which bullets leave the barrel means it's now a bit easier to track moving targets.
