PUBG 1.81 Patch Notes – October 14, 2021

TAEGO UPDATES

TAEGO WORLD IMPROVEMENTS

Since the introduction of Taego, we have been continuously analyzing the play history to collect information about the overly advantageous areas on the map. As a result, we discovered that some regions of Taego have a relatively high win rate compared to others. After checking the win rate of the most popular combat zones, objects and terrain improvements were made for the areas with a win rate of 75% or more.

NEW FEATURE: CARRY

Making its way to the Battlegrounds this update is the new Carry feature. Be the hero your team deserves by risking it all to carry an ally to safety or take a downed enemy on the adventure of a lifetime – before they bleed out, that is.

There are pros and cons to picking up a downed player. For one, they’ll serve as a sort of human shield, guarding you against some incoming fire (pro for you, con for them…), but in return, you will not be able to sprint, jump, crouch, prone or hurdle, so make sure you choose your rescue route carefully. You can still fire while carrying a player, but your options are reduced to hip fire only. As for the carried player themselves, their bleed-out time will be lowered, and they’ll also be able to spot for you, though their visibility will be limited to whichever way you turn them.

  • Available on all maps.
  • You may pick up any downed player (friend or foe) that is not currently self-reviving or being revived.
  • While carrying a player, the following is true:
    • The following cannot be used.
      • Panzerfaust
      • Melee weapons
      • Throwables (includes Gas/Jerry Can)
      • Emergency Pickup
      • Emergency Parachute
    • You and the carried player still take damage separately.
    • Your movement speed remains the same. However, you cannot crouch, go prone, sprint, jump, or hurdle.
    • You may still fire your weapon, but from the hip only.
    • You may not use healing items.
    • You may not use throwables.
  • While being carried a player, the following is true:
    • Your field of vision is limited to the direction your carrier is facing you.
  • Carried players cannot join you in a vehicle.
  • When the Carrier starts to swim Carry is canceled and the carried person drops/sinks to the bottom.
  • You cannot attach to an Emergency Pickup while carrying a player.
  • You may not use an Emergency Parachute while carrying a player.

UI/UX IMPROVEMENTS

NAMEPLATE

  • We wanted the Nameplate animations to be shown better so we delayed the appearance of emblem, nickname, level, and medal.
  • The font size was reduced as well.

QOL IMPROVEMENTS

KEY GUIDES

We have improved the key guides for vehicle types and actions (ex. Motorcycle – Lean Back) to provide a more accurate and detailed experience.

XBOX SAFE AREA

Safe Area had to be reset every time the monitor was turned on. However, with this update, you can maintain the display status of the Safe Area once it is set up.

  • Area ratio setting value
    • Default: Displays 100% of the output display.
    • Minimum Value(50): Only 50% of the output display’s horizontal area is displayed.
    • Maximum Value(100): Displays 100% of the output display’s horizontal area.
