There’s a new hotfix released by the devs of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. This new hotfix addresses the issues of player crashes mostly related to the Miramar map. Players have been complaining about the issue for a while and the devs seem to have taken steps. The tweet from PUBG support reads, “PC Players: Live servers will enter maintenance for 4 hours starting March 31 5:30pm PDT / April 1 9:30am KST / April 1 00:30 UTC. Alongside routine backend stability improvements, some bug fixes will also be applied.

In the last PUBG update we finally got the previously teased Panzerfaust. Besides this there is also the introduction of changes to some weapons as well. The weapons changes include rebalancing some weapons including one formerly only found in Care Packages. There’s also a tonne of new bug fixes along with changes to the invincibility in Team Deathmatch. All the patch notes of the PUBG update 6.3 can be seen here.
New Weapon: Panzerfaust
The devs have been sneaking the Panzerfaust into the Season 6 videos. And now the weapon is finally out. It is a powerful AoE weapon, but there are some drawbacks to picking the Panzerfaust up. First of all, it takes up a primary weapon slot, which limits the options of the user. The projectile travels pretty quickly, but can be dodged by the attentive player. There’s also a backblast area behind the Panzerfaust, so players need to watch out for squadmates before firing it off.
The Panzerfaust is guaranteed to be in every airdrop. The Panzerfaust warhead explodes upon impact, but can also be blown up mid air. The damage radius is 6m from the point of impact. The explosion can deal splash damage through thin walls and objects, up to a short distance. Can be used to breach specific walls on Karakin, much like the Sticky Bomb. The warhead will explode mid air, before impact if damaged by explosions or shot by a bullet.
The Tommy Gun has been weak for a while, so the devs are adding a sight slot for red dots and holos and increasing the damage. The M249 is moving from Care Packages to normal loot but is also losing a little damage and getting a bit more recoil. Last but not the least, the UMP-45 was nerfed with the switch from 9mm, so it is getting a specs bump across the board.
