The new PUBG Xbox One update was released earlier today, meaning less disruption for fans in the UK.

This is the kind of software that moves hardware that Microsoft has been lacking since the launch of the system back in 2013.

Whether you're streaming in the HypeZone on Mixer or battling for a chicken dinner with your squad, players on Xbox are helping build and improve the game on console.

Pistols have been removed from Y button's weapon rotation and grouped with the melee weapon.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is available now for PC and on Xbox One through the Game Preview program.


This should have now been fixed with the new PUBG update, which comes with a few other performance enhancements.

The developers have already revealed a couple of issues that will be addressed in PUBG's next update, namely a glitch that causes players to switch weapons when dropping items and the inability to cycle through grenade types using the d-pad.

A message from Bluehole Inc. confirms: "As part of that update, we have chose to include some additional performance and gameplay improvements, as well as a new controller option". Though by default, aiming is mapped in two stages to the left trigger, this update offers the option of aiming down sights with "LT", while third-person aiming is activated by pressing "LB". Holding LB to use 3rd person perspective aim sight.

Fixed an issue where players repositioned out of the battleground after certain actions and remained invulnerable until the end of the match.

Prior to the update, players in the midst of a firefight would sometimes have to cycle through their pistol to get to their better weapon. After installing, all changes in the above changelog will be applied. Make sure to drop into the comments with your thoughts.
