PUBG Weapon Skins System Launched in Test Server

pubg weapons

If you ever thought you needed more PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) stuff to do and collect, then you just got your wish, PUBG Corporation is now testing a new PUBG weapon skins system in the test server environment!

Aside from that, there’s also changes to matchmaking, which might come in the form of a region-locking feature that means players who reside in a specific region will only be able to play where they are. It will be overridden for parties, though. Check out the full PUBG 1.0 update #8 test server patch notes.

  • KR/JP joint server is now separated into KR server and JP server
    • Leaderboard for both KR Server and JP server are added
    • KR/JP players will be able to see and play on the server for their respective regions
    • Those who can see neither KR sever, nor JP server, can only play in KR/JP server if they team up with a player who can see KR/JP server

Same as before, if the changes, tweaks and updates rolled into the test servers are deemed successful, then it’ll be pushed out to everyone in a new update.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where the refresh button on the friends list would take you to the team tab when players are in a team
  • Fixed an issue where when players leave the vehicle and the vehicle is positioned right next to the window of a building, players would go into the building through the window when getting out off the vehicle
  • Fixed an issue where during server instability, when exiting a slow moving vehicle, the players would be treated as if they were hit by their own vehicle

Thoughts on the weapon skins so far? Good or bad? Will the region matchmaking thing help alleviate the cheating issues which is plaguing the game so far? Don’t forget to check out the new 4×4 map shown off the other day too.
