PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Week 16 Patch Fixes 4:3 Resolution and Airplanes

Find out what’s getting tweaked in this week’s PUBG patch.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds players can look forward to improved UI performance and various bug fixes later this week. Assuming everything works out on the test server, the Week 16 Early Access Patch will deploy on the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds live servers this Thursday, July 13th

This week’s patch focuses mainly on UI bug fixes and airplane optimization. One notable fix will address an inventory display issue when playing in 4:3 resolution. It’s also a relief to know that players who get knocked out while zooming in with a scope no longer have to worry about staying zoomed in upon being revived by a teammate. Other fixes include optimizations for airplanes, changes to the spectator screen color, and adjustments to the HUD UI when swapping weapons.

If zoomed in with a scope when knocked out, you will no longer stay zoomed in upon being revived.
