PUBG Update 1.65 Patch Notes (v11.1) for PS4 (PUBG 1.65)

PUBG update 1.65 is now for download for PS4 players. According to the official PUBG 1.65 patch notes, the latest update added updated terrain and new game modes. Apart from this, PUBG version 1.65 also includes weapon balance updates that include damage increases for the Mini-14, VSS, and SCAR-L.

Previously, a big 9.1 update added a new dynamic map Paramo, Framerate Priority setting with a lifted frame cap for Xbox One X and PS4 Pro, new custom match settings, and more.

Unfortunately, many players are still experiencing several issues while playing the game. Today’s PUBG version 1.65 will fix a few of these issues.

PUBG 1.65 Patch Notes 11.1 (Updated)

The Return of Paramo

Based on your feedback, we’ve brought back Paramo to Normal and Custom matches, as Haven and Karkin bid farewell.

Check out the changes to Paramo this update!

  • Added one random spot(total of four).
  • Increased item spawn rates in the Secret Room and Care Package Helicopter.
  • Improved terrain and added additional cover to fields.

Normal Matches

  • Up to 64 players can play in a match (bots included).

Custom Matches

  • Now available in Custom Matches
  • Added Secret Room Key to spawn options.

Map Service Plans

Last year, the team focused on releasing several smaller sized maps with unique features, from Karakin and its building destruction, to Paramo and its partially randomized terrain, to the urban streets of Haven along with its PvPvE elements. We love making new and interesting maps for you all to play on but all these new maps make matchmaking and map rotation a pretty difficult task. To try and keep a balance between map choice and matchmaking times, we’ll be limiting the number of playable maps to five starting with Update 11.1.

We know that our players have very different tastes when it comes to map size, but the consensus has generally been in favor of the large 8×8 maps. Because of this, Erangel and Miramar will always be available with the remaining maps cycling in and out of the remaining three slots. Cycling out maps also gives us the opportunity to work on them a bit for when they make their return. For Update 11.1, Paramo will be replacing Karakin in the rotation.

Paramo has been a fan favorite since it first dropped and many of you have been asking for it back. We’ve added in more options for game modes and fine-tuned a few other things, added an additional random map area each match, and also made it available in custom games. Karakin will continue to be available in custom games.

We hope this new plan helps keep PUBG’s map selection exciting while still getting you all into games in a timely fashion. Thanks and enjoy your return to Paramo!

Weapon Balance Updates

Based on the data we’ve collected in the past months, we’ve made adjustments to the Weapon Balance. We found that in Normal matches, the Beryl, M416, and SLR are all used in a similar amount. In Ranked matches, however, the Beryl is outperforming other weapons, followed closely by the SLR. To help keep matches exciting and make sure players have many viable battle choices, we’ve decided to nerf the Beryl and SLR. On the other hand, we’ve seen that certain guns are underperforming, and so we are giving the Mini-14, VSS, and SCAR-L small buffs.

  • Mini-14
    • Increased damage by +1. (46 → 47)
  • VSS
    • Increased damage by +2. (41 → 43)
  • SCAR-L
    • Increased damage by +1. (41 → 42)
  • SLR
    • Increased horizontal recoil by 15%.
    • Decreased recoil recovery rate from 2.1 → 1.9
  • Beryl
    • Increased horizontal recoil magnitude by 5%
    • Increased horizontal recoil speed from 10 → 11
    • Increased vertical recoil speed by +1.5 (15 → 16.5)

New Feature: Emergency Pickup

When the Emergency Pickup is deployed, a Fulton Balloon is released from its bag. When the Balloon is fully inflated and high up in the air, an airplane will arrive in 60 seconds. During this time, up to a maximum of 4 players can attach themselves to the Fulton Balloon rope. Once that plane arrives, it catches the Balloon, hoists up the players, and makes its way towards the center of the Safe Zone.

At any point during the flight, players can detach themselves and parachute down. When deploying the Emergency Pickup, make sure the area is clear of obstacles (terrain, vehicles, buildings) with a clear view of the sky, or it will fail. The Emergency Pickup cannot be used before the first circle appears and after the fourth circle, so use it wisely. It will also not work when you use it indoors, on ferries, or trains.

The Emergency Pickup is a lootable item only found on Erangel, Miramar, Sanhok and Vikendi that can be carried around in your inventory.

Emergency Pickup can be used effectively in the following situations:

  • Stuck deep in the Blue Zone or are otherwise unable to outrun it
  • Have to cross an open field with little cover while engaging another team
  • When you and your teammates want to find a safer looting location

Be aware of the following once you’re picked up by the plane:

  • Once picked up by the plane, you cannot shoot, so be wary of taking fire while you’re midair.. especially if there is a Motor Glider around.
  • Players on the rope can receive damage and are therefore vulnerable to mid-air attacks from a Motor Glider.
  • Players can detach from the rope at anytime and deploy the parachute.
  • At an altitude of less than 50 meters, the parachute is unable to be deployed.
  • Camera is locked in TPP for the duration of the journey.

Mastery Medal Updates

Ten new types of Mastery Medals have been added.

  • While the first medal update focused on killing skills in battle, this update adds medals that focus on multiple combat situations and play styles.
  • For example, medals have been added for missed victories, taking down a whole enemy squad, coming out on top in certain unlucky situations and even for working well with your team.

Mastery Medals can be acquired in both Normal Matches and Ranked, but not Arcade, Labs and Custom Matches. Each medal specifics which game modes they can be acquired in.

PUBG ID Updates

  • Players can now display up to two medals on their PUBG ID, as an awesome way to show off your achievements.
    • Upgrading a medal tier will remove the old medal and only display the higher tier medal.
  • Players can customize their PUBG ID from the Customize tab.
  • PUBG ID will now be shown as a profile pop-up, rather than the previous passport format.
