PUBG Update 25.2 Patch Notes

PUBG: Battlegrounds version 25.2 is now available on the test servers and is set to be released for PC players on September 6, 2023. Console players can expect the update to arrive on September 14, 2023.

This new update significantly modifies the popular battle royale game, particularly concerning the recently introduced Dragunov weapon.

In the previous 25.1 update, the Dragunov marksman rifle (DMR) was introduced to the game, which led to mixed reactions within the gaming community.

One of the major points of contention was its unique probabilistic damage system. The game developers acknowledged player feedback from a recent survey and recognized the concerns regarding the probabilistic damage system.

They noted that some players felt this system could clash with the game’s traditional skill-based gunplay.

The initial intention behind adding the Dragunov was to offer players a fresh and distinct gameplay experience while injecting new excitement and unique elements into the game’s usual flow.

However, the developers have taken the player community’s feedback seriously.

The upcoming update will reflect adjustments based on player feedback, aiming to balance introducing innovative gameplay elements and maintaining the fundamental aspects that make PUBG enjoyable for players.
