PUBG PC Releases Full Update 7.3 Patch Notes Bringing Changes, Improvements, and Bug Fixes

Have a look at the latest PUBG PC update to get new information about changes, upgrades, improvements, and bug fixes in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. The new PUBG Update 7.3 is now live, which means you can directly jump into new content and check it out! For the changes in this update, the development team concentrated on some survivability enhancements made to vehicles, together with a brand new explosive tool on the Battlegrounds, as well as the quality of life improvements when players parachute down onto the map, and so forth. Without further ado, let’s get right into the full PUBG PC 7.3 patch notes below!

New changes and improvements in PUBG PC update 7.3

PUBG Season 7 Vehicle Balance

There is no denying that PUBG vehicles play a crucial role in the Battlegrounds. There have been lots of players meeting their end when their vehicles explode. However, with some more realistic survivability added to this PUBG PC patch, players will now know how to survive when their vehicles take damage. Also, players will get a small window to bail out prior to the happening of the final explosion.

Changes made to explosion mechanic

  • Vehicles in PUBG PC will not blow up instantly anymore when players reach 0 HP. Instead, the engines in the vehicles will be put out of the action and set on fire, making them blow up after 5 seconds.
  • But if players take large radial damage from Red Zones, C4, and others, there is still a chance for the vehicles to explode instantly.
  • Vehicles that are exploded will get both linear and angular velocity rather than just only linear (the movement of the vehicle after explosion should be somewhat less static now).
  • Besides, all vehicles will not take increased collision damage anymore when they are rolled over.

Changes made to vehicle damage

  • Most vehicles in PUBG PC will now have lots of zones that take damage, applying various damage multipliers.
    • The following vehicles will have those damage zones, including Buggy, Dacia, UAZ, Mirado, Pickup, Rony and Zima
      • All other PUBG vehicles take damage as before, regardless of areas hit.
  • Zones that take damage:
    • Engine – 100% Damage
      • Engine area, usually at the front
    • Body – 75% Damage
      • Front and rear doors, the rear and bottom sides of the body
    • Roof – 50% Damage
      • Roof panel, roof pillars, seats, mirrors
  • Boat Armor Upgrade
    • Boats now have 5 static damage decrease

New Throwable: C4

New Throwable: C4

With C4 – a new and powerful tool, players can easily wipe out timid enemies in new strategic ways. C4 in PUBG PC is provided with a massive 25-meter effective radius and damage that is able to pierce cover. You will have to escape away when you hear the beeping brick of boom. The development team of PUBG PC does not want to make C4 a new throwable due to its short range, however, players can use C4 to cut off opponent entry into a certain building or a new zone, or they can use it to make enemies get out of their safe positions.

  • C4 will now begin to beep and automatically go off 16 seconds after being thrown.
  • Players cannot stop the detonation or activate it early.
  • Pay attention to a warning LED on the C4 as well as audible beeping with growing intensity. This audible inside the damage radius tells you that the explosion is coming.
  • C4 can cling onto most surfaces, even including vehicles.
  • However, C4 cannot stick to players.
  • 25 meters is the effective damage radius, with a deadly damage radius of 15 meters.
  • The damage will expand in a vertical way, but with a bit less range (the deadly radius of 12.5 meters vertically).
  • The shockwave coming from the explosion is extremely strong. It dishes out damage to all opponents that are in its radius, even if they are using a cover.
  • You cannot throw the C4 far and you cannot bring many at the same time due to its weight.
  • C4 can be found as world loot on PUBG Maps, including Erangel, Miramar, Vikendi, and Sanhok.
  • C4 will come to the Training Mode at a later date.

Spike Trap

Spike traps in PUBG PC are not quite useful just like you hoped. Therefore, the developers are growing the length of the traps by 50% in order to make the trapped choke points harder to get around.

  • The length of the Spike Trap is now grown by 50%.

Vikendi Loot Balance

  • The DMR spawns were grown slightly

Parachute Follow Feature

Parachute Follow Feature

The parachute follow feature was added back to normal matches in order to allow teammates to land together.

This parachute follow feature was eliminated for the time being after being added to PUBG PC Update 6.2 because of some technical problems that have been addressed now.

  • Throughout the pre-match countdown, you will see the follow UI at the bottom left of the screen.
  • You have to open the map to choose a teammate that you want to follow.
  • You can still choose a teammate to follow until jumping out of the plane.
  • Once you have chosen a teammate to follow, it can be canceled on the map screen if you want, or you can cancel it by pressing F while in the plane, or while you are going behind a player in your parachute.
  • If terrain or an object obstructs you, your follow will be called off.
  • With a brand new icon added, the “Disable Follow” option will be better highlighted.

Esports Tab

Now, in the new menu, you will see some elements, like an overview, standings, as well as the next Pick’Em Challenge. You can get access to the menu through July, so make sure you stop back frequently to find out what’s going on with PCS1 and PUBG Esports!

Improvements made to Train System

Finally, PUBG Vikendi received an update!

Another line, extra stops, as well as some visual and audio improvements, were all added to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds PC in order to help put more concentration on the train system. With these elements, you will know when your trains arrive and depart. Besides, some more DMRs and scenery changes were also released to finish the season.

Improvements made to Train System

Adjustments made to Train Line

  • A New train line was added to PUBG PC through this 7.3 update
    • You see that there is another train line now spanning in a vertical way when you look towards the center of the map. With this train line, it will help connect the whole system much better, making it easier to travel across the map.
  • Made some improvements to the current lines
    • The developers have put a bigger concentration on longer routes. They decided to lengthen the current train lines that would help players move to a substantial distance easily without changing trains a lot of times.
Improvements made to Train System 2
  • Stations and signals
    • All trains will now traverse two stations before they change direction. This will provide you some more time to catch up with them and jump on them.
    • You will now know when the trains arrive and depart thanks to the new flashing traffic lights and exclusive arrival and departure sounds.

  • The current Ranked Season in PUBG PC will come to its end with maintenance on July 22nd, and the brand new season will start instantly after the finish of maintenance.

Adjustments made to the map selection ratio

Reduction for Sanhok Ratio

  • The frequency in which you will enter Sanhok in Ranked Mode was reduced.
    • The development team had an internal discussion and collected feedback from players in relation to their experiences with Sanhok in Ranked Mode. The experience offered by the map is not the same as the bigger maps, and of course, it has been eliminated from Ranked Mode entirely. Although some players still enjoy playing on Sanhok in Ranked Mode, so the developers decided to decrease the frequency in which you will get into Sanhok matches in ranked a little bit.
  • Please continue sending your feedback on this.
