There are many changes in the update 18 of the game which include a change in the bullet penetration works with limbs, and a new dynamic weather system has been added to the game on Xbox. Erangle will be getting a new Overcast weather mode and Miramar has a new Overcast mode along with a new Sunset mode. Overcast weather can turn into rain and fog anytime.

As for the new bullet penetration system, limbs will no longer stop bullets from hitting vital points in the body like the head and chest. This means that the bullet will hit the arm and go through to hit the head when the hand comes in between the head and the bullet.

Besides this, there are a few minor additions of buildings to both the maps and a whole lot of patches and bug fixes.

PUBG Update 18 Patch Notes

Spectate Mode

– When spectating a player, their aiming movement is now more in sync with the spectator view.

– We expect approximately 15% increase in server performance.

– Network code has been adjusted to slightly increase server performance.

– Optimized GPU resources to lower GPU burden and improve performance.
