Update #28 - Patch Notes

Hi everyone,

Update #28 is now available on the PUBG: Test Server and is scheduled to hit live servers very soon. As always, we’ll keep you updated and announce when it goes to Live!

PUBG’s latest update introduces our brand new feature Weapon Mastery! Weapon Mastery is a progression system that allows players to earn free rewards as they level up their gunplay skills. As part of Weapon Mastery we are also debuting Medals for players who perform awesome feats during their matches.

In addition to our latest feature, we’ve taken your feedback from our first round of Erangel loot rebalances and made adjustments. Speaking of adjustments, based on player feedback we have reduced the difficulty on a number of missions for Survivor Pass 3: Wild Card, including the elimination of a few missions deemed too difficult to complete.

There are a number of updates to how you can interact with items in the store, interface improvements for squads and over two dozen bug fixes.

Read on for more details on all of the changes and improvements.

A second round of Erangel loot rebalances has been made, as well as improvements to some sounds and effects related to gameplay.

Erangel 2nd Loot Rebalance

As we have spoken previously in our Dev Letter: Erangel Loot Rebalance, we are constantly analyzing player feedback, play patterns and other data. With this update, we’re implementing a second round of changes to improve the player looting experience on Erangel.
  • The total amount of items spawned in Erangel has been increased by approximately 28%.
  • Increased the overall amount of items spawned, especially the spawn rates of those higher priority items.
    • Spawn rate of AR has been increased by approx 64%.
    • Spawn rate of DMR has been increased by approx 114%.
    • Spawn rate of SR has been increased by approx 177%.
    • Spawn rates of equipment and armor have been slightly increased, especially level 2.
    • Spawn rates of healing items have been slightly increased.
Erangel Blue Zone Rebalance Test (TEST SERVER ONLY)
  • During this test server phase, we’ll be testing some changes to the blue zone on Erangel. At this stage, these changes are purely experimental and we’re looking for feedback to understand how players feel about the direction of the changes.
  • There is no expected date or certainty that these changes will come to live servers, but we greatly appreciate and are looking forward to your feedback as we experiment with the blue zone changes specifically on the test server this week.
SR Damage Multiplier Changes
  • Decreased the damage modifier of SR shots to the torso from 150% to 130%.
  • Decreased the base damage of the AWM from 120 to 105.
    • The AWM will no-longer kill full health players wearing a level 2 vest in one shot with these changes.
Sound Improvements
  • We’ve now added more sounds for item interactions.
    • Previously items were looted, dropped, equipped and unequipped, some items had the same sound effects regardless of the characteristics of each item. Sounds will now vary more between items.
  • Added vehicle suspension sounds.
    • Sounds of moving vehicles’ suspension working can now be heard.
    • Different sounds will be played in different situations. Vehicles moving on rough terrain or when landing from a jump will make unique sounds.
    • Suspension sound volume is different between TPP and FPP.
Smoke Grenade Improvement
  • Smoke grenades are now more accurately synchronized across all players and observers.
    • Previously, smoke grenade duration for the viewer would start when coming into viewable range (1 km) of the smoke grenade. Smoke grenade plumes will now end at the same time for all players/observers.
Vehicles Effects Improvement
  • Added vehicle lighting effects.
    • Vehicle headlights, tail lights and dashboard are turned on when the vehicle’s engine starts.
    • The lights are only local visual effects and will not illuminate the surrounding areas.
Open/Close Doors Animation Improvement
  • Improved the algorithm to determine when vehicles are blocking doors, preventing them from opening or closing.
Survivor Pass 3: Wild Card
After the launch of the Survivor Pass 3: Wild Card, we’ve been continuously collecting and analyzing mission result data. Additionally, we’ve been actively reviewing players feedback regarding specific mission difficulty. We have chosen to adjust and remove some missions which players found too difficult to complete.
  • Daily Missions: Decreased the difficulty of 16 missions and deleted 4 missions which were too difficult.

Introducing: Weapon Mastery

Hello Players!

Late last year, PUBG Corporation formed a new Mastery initiative dedicated to improving and evolving how progression works on the Battlegrounds. Since then, we’ve been heads down working to establish a cohesive progression system that feels true to the PUBG experience and rewarding to you, the players. After months of planning and development, we’re stoked to finally reveal our first class of progression: Weapon Mastery.

What is Weapon Mastery?

Weapon Mastery is a brand new progression feature in PUBG with unique, free rewards. Our goals for Weapon Mastery are simple, give players an avenue for improving their weapon skills and celebrate the journey along the way.

After Weapon Mastery goes live, you’ll notice every weapon now has a series of levels that players can progress through by dealing damage and defeating opponents. It’s important to note however that both strategy and precision also have an influence on how quickly you level up your weapons. Weapon Mastery aims to encourage healthy play in PUBG where both weapon skill and the effort to be the last man standing are rewarded in tandem.

TL;DR: Shoot enemies, stay alive, get cool stuff.

Progressing in Weapon Mastery

You can progress through Weapon Mastery levels by earning Weapon XP in matches. Hitting difficult shots, surviving longer and defeating more enemies will all earn you Weapon XP at a faster rate. After every ten levels on a weapon, you will be promoted to the next Mastery Tier (there are 10 tiers total). Gaining levels and tiers in Weapon Mastery will result in unlocking the rewards content the system has to offer. The farther you progress, the more there is to unlock. In order to help you track your progression, we’ve included a new Last Match screen where you can see your earned Weapon XP, weapon stats, and earned rewards from the previous game you’ve played.

Mastery Menu

We’ve bundled the Last Match screen and everything else related to weapon progression under this new menu. The Mastery Menu will serve as the new home for all progression content from the Mastery team. In this version, you’ll be able to view weapon stats, see your earned medals and track your rewards progress on each weapon.

Earning Rewards

Speaking of rewards, Weapon Mastery features a number of new things to unlock and collect, all of which are free to those who earn them. No Weapon Mastery content will ever be purchasable, so be prepared to work for this specialized loot. Giving players the opportunity to show off their accomplishments and personalize their look are very high on our priority list. We've explained how you earn rewards, but here's a taste of the perks and levels coming to Weapon Mastery.


Charms are a brand new aesthetic reward to PUBG. Charms are keychain-like trinkets that attach to the left side on the barrel of each weapon. You can equip and see which charms you have unlocked from inside the Mastery tab. We’re launching with 20 unique charms that must be earned on a per weapon basis and it’s a safe bet that there are more on the way.

<Weapon Mastery has 20 different earnable charms at launch, here are just a few.>

Mastery Emblems

Each tier has its own corresponding emblem and those emblems get more prestigious over time. Over the next few months our team will be exploring ways for you to show off your emblems to other players.


The launch of Weapon Mastery also features the maiden voyage of our new medals system. Medals are our way of highlighting the awesome accomplishments you perform. Our launch medals all revolve around rare weapons feats. We’ll be sharing more on how medals fit into our larger plans in the future, but in the meantime, enjoy stacking those Quadras.

What Are Defeats?

Defeats are a new concept we’re bringing to the game in order to clarify how medals are earned.

You Defeat a player by
  • Killing any player in the solo playlists
  • Knocking down any enemy in duo or squad playlists
  • Killing the last man standing on a team in duo or squad playlists

You do not Defeat a player by
  • Killing an already knocked player in duo or squad playlists

...and no, you can’t defeat your own teammates. Don’t be that guy.

What’s Next

Weapon Mastery is the first piece of a much larger system currently being designed. As we learn, adapt, and grow as a group, we want to hear from you. If you have ideas to improve the Weapon Mastery system, ideas for future rewards, or any other thoughts on the best way to grow and progress as a PUBG player, please let us know.

Some of the Weapon Mastery team will be doing an AMA on Reddit on 04/22/2019 from 10am to 1pm ET, which we’ll link through our social channels. This will be a great time to ask the developers and designers any questions related to this upcoming feature! We'll also be collecting questions separately from those who are not able to participate in the AMA because of the time difference, so please leave your questions here as comments! We are going to collect and send them to AMA so that developers can answer. These answers will be posted on the Q&A announcement after the event, so watch for upcoming announcements for your chance to get answers!

You can try out the Weapon Mastery system on the PC test server on 04/17/2019 KST, and when it goes live a week later for PC. Weapons Mastery is in development for Xbox and PS4.

See you on the Battlegrounds,

--The PUBG Mastery Team
