The update is supposed to hit the live servers this week itself. Also Read - PUBG PC Update 8.2 live on test server with MG3 LMG, Decoy Grenade

The biggest updates to the bluezone has been to introduce shorter wait times, and the speeds of shrinking has been reduced for mid game. According to the developers, these changes should bring about a faster gameplay. There are plenty of other tweaks that the developers have done, and they are listed below.

– Blue zone delay time has been reduced. You’ll be given less time to linger between phases.
– The maximum movement speed of the blue zone has been reduced. The blue zone will move more slowly toward the end of the game.
– The damage inflicted by 7th, 8th, and 9th blue zones has been increased.
– Except for the first blue zone, the probability of creating an extreme safe zone (one far away from the center of the previous circle) has been reduced by 30%.
– The final blue zone will narrow down to the center instead of narrowing down to a random spot, and the total wait time including the blue zone inactive time has been reduced. (195 seconds to 90 seconds)
– As the end of the match approaches, the safe zone will increasingly favor areas with land over areas with water.
– On Erangel specifically, the first safe zone will now be revealed 30 seconds earlier.
– On Miramar specifically, players can now see the first safe zone while flying in the airplane. (We may or may not carry this over to the next live update. We want your feedback about this change.)
– In-game clothing spawns have been removed from all maps. Other item spawn balance remains the same. Also Read - PUBG Update 8.1 live on the console test servers

Bluehole has even made some changes to the northern half of the Miramar map, which has been largely considered no-man’s-land by players due to its desolate nature. The developers are adding buildings and more vehicles to populate the area better as an end drop zone. Here are all the changes that have been added.

– The Oasis can now be found in the north, and Alcantara village has been added to the northwest.
– We’ve added more roads, off-road paths, and car spawning positions to facilitate easy travel into and out of the area.
– Higher-tier loot is now more likely to spawn in specific areas of the north of Miramar.
We’ve optimized the GPU performance of buildings seen from mid-range (all maps).
