PUBG’s new, pyjama-themed Survivor Pass is on the test server
PUBG Studio has put PUBG’s . patch on the test server and, boy, is it a big one. Alongside all the usual tweaks and bug fixes, we’ve got the new Survivor Pass, nerfs for drive-by shooting, and some redesign work for Erangel’s bridges.
PUBG Studio has themed PUBG’s new Survival Pass around a pyjama party, which feels oddly on point given that most of us have spent the last year in our pyjamas. You’ve got rewards to pick up over levels of tiers you can grind. Cosmetics include pyjama-themed skins for your weapons – like the AUG – and outfits for yourself. Survivor Pass: Pajama Party kicks off properly on April and ends on June . There’s no grace period anymore, so make sure you pick up your gear.
PUBG’s pesky drive-by tactic is also getting nerfed. PUBG Studio is currently toying around with increasing in-vehicle recoil for weapons to %, though this doesn’t apply to sidearms. If you’ve been out of the loop, passenger stability in vehicles was buffed in a previous update. Combating players in cars became tricky as, well, they can fire upon you with no recoil while being hard to hit themselves.
The PUBG team has also reworked some of Erangel’s bridgers to make them a more balanced spot to duke it out with foes. The developer has widened some, while others have seen vehicles moved around.
“This minor rework brings structural changes to the bridges and includes the addition of new defendable positions, in addition to catwalks underneath to help fend off attacks, including those from the water,” PUBG Studio says. “These catwalks also double as a new avenue of attack to mount an assault on those pesky bridge-campers.”
