PUBG-Desperado

If ever there was a game that defined the grind of cosmetics, it has to be PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Said items are entirely superfluous and make no difference whatsoever to how players engage in a round of PUBG, and yet fans still go mental for the goods to the point where they’ll shell out hundreds upon hundreds of American greenbacks for a mere dress.

The Steam marketplace will most likely be charging a premium soon enough then, as the latest fashion trends have just arrived in the PC test server for PUBG: Leather. In case you haven’t heard, I love leather. The Desperado collection features plenty of that cow hide to saunter around in, although getting your hands on a crate will most likely be one hell of a grind.

PUBG Desperado (1)

According to the latest PUBG patch notes, these drop rates range from as high as an 8% chance of dropping all the way through to a minuscule 0.16% for a simple cloth mask. Here’s a look at the contents of new leeeeeeeaaaaather crates via Eurogamer, which will make their way to PUBG proper soon enough:

Desperado items

As for the rest of the patch that is currently being tested? Some solid changes are on the way, including a new report system that will flag cheaters when their replays are accessed:

World

  • Added more objects around La Bendita on Miramar to increase the amount of cover

Gameplay

  • Reduced the visible distance when parachuting down in order to test the optimization of server and client performance at the early phases of the game

Item

  • Changed the design of the energy drink

UI/UX

  • Adjusted the squad team colors (players 1~4) to better reflect their callout names (yellow, orange, blue, green)
  • Adjusted squad team colors to make them more consistent between different colorblind options
  • Added a function where a player can select more detailed criteria for the “Cheating” category in the in-game report tool
  • You can choose multiple items or you can just report without selecting any of them

Replays

  • While player’s nameplate is on (H key), now you can check the current weapon of that player by pressing G key
  • Added report button in replay
  • Report button pops up when pressing RMB on the player list (TAB key)
  • While observing / following mode, report button appears on the timeline (J key)
  • Added a care package icon changing effect according to the status
  • The icon will be different when the care package is falling and looted by other players
  • Adjusted replay system so that now a player can watch the replay without extra delay in the following cases: solo mode; when the player won the match; when all teammates are eliminated

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed the issue where when a player lands from the plane the position of character teleports intermittently
  • Fixed the issue where character animation is frozen when rejoining after a crash
  • Fixed the issue where the red zone disappears instantly after it formed
  • Fixed the issue where some vehicles spawned on Miramar are stuck to an object and unable to move
  • Fixed the issue where a player sometimes couldn’t pass through a door even though it was open
  • Fixed the issue where mouse cursor would disappear on a replay map
  • Fixed the issue where when replay and death cam were played, the crosshair was bouncing
  • Fixed the issue where the falling speed meter text was showing abnormally in Portuguese

Meanwhile, there isn’t a patch in existence in any reality of the entire multiverse that is capable of giving me a fighting chance of not being terrible at PUBG.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
