The Buggy vehicle has had its sound fixed too. Lastly, thunder sounds can now be occasionally heard during the rain. Overall, Bluehole Inc. improved the sound design of their game. 

Gamebreaking Glitch Fixes

This patch now also prevents players from clipping through various areas in the game. Players would hide inside rocks to become undetectable and have a safe cover to defeat other players. Meanwhile, the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds April update also made fixes to prevent players from going under the map. Lastly, the bug fixes lists down to solve weapon switching issues and wrong compass directions.

Overall Patch Importance

In a PvP survival game a la Battle Royale, players will need every hint of sound for situational awareness in the match. Players can be paranoid about recruiting other players due to the game’s “last man standing” end goal. If playing solo against everybody, players will need every information they can get on each person near them and use it to their advantage.

The PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds April update is just the second patch of the game. Since it is still in Early Access, the game will continuously need more updates as it builds up to its full version. Stay updated with more PlayerUnknown’s Battleground news and updates here on The Bitbag.
