PUBG 6.3 is now live across all platforms. 6.3 is a big one and adds a new Panzerfaust rocket launcher to the game, tweaks the UMP-45, Tommy Gun, M249, and DBS, and deploys several quality of life fixes and performance updates.

Full patch notes for the 6.3 update:

New weapon: Panzerfaust

  • Karakin exclusive.
  • Uncommon world spawn found across the map.
  • Guaranteed to be in every airdrop.
  • The Panzerfaust warhead explodes upon impact, but can also be blown up mid-air.
    • The damage radius is 6m from the point of impact.
    • The explosion can deal splash damage through thin walls and objects, up to a short distance.
    • Can be used to breach specific walls on Karakin, much like the Sticky Bomb.
    • The warhead will explode mid-air, before impact if damaged by explosions or shot by a bullet.
  • One time use.
    • Once the warhead is fired, the Panzerfaust tube will be discarded and cannot be picked back up.
  • Firing the warhead produces a backblast, so be careful.
    • The backblast damages those within a 3m zone behind the weapon. Be careful you don’t have any teammates or a wall too close behind you.
  • Zeroing options at 60, 100 (default) and 150 meters.

Weapon balance changes

Tommy Gun

  • Added upper rail to attach Red Dot and Holo Sights.
  • Increased rate of fire from 700 to 750.
  • Increased firing accuracy.
    • We’ve reduced the bullet deviation penalty when firing for an extended duration
  • Increased moving accuracy.
  • Decreased recoil when firing for an extended duration.
    • This is due to the increased rate of fire.

M249

  • Added Stock attachment slot.
    • A Tactical Stock can be equipped to improve weapon stability.
  • Added Magazine attachment​ slot.
    • Reduced standard ammo capacity to 75.

  • Increased recoil.
  • Found on ALL maps.
  • Semi-rare spawn.

UMP-45

  • Increased base bullet damage​ from 39 to 41.
  • Increased rate of fire from 650 to 670.
  • Increased muzzle velocity from 300 to 360.
    • This means an increase to the speed at which bullets leave the barrel, making it a bit easier to track moving targets.

DBS

  • Removed from Care Packages.
  • Now found on ALL maps as rare ground loot.

Quality of life improvements

  • Improved visibility of nearby items on the ground by enhancing the glowing effect and adding a new pulse effect.
    • The new pulse effect can be disabled and is listed as “Item Flashing Effect” under Gameplay settings.

  • [Team Deathmatch] Invincibility will now be removed instantly when engaging in combat (firing a weapon, throwing grenade, etc.).
  • [Team Deathmatch] Hotkey for player reports is disabled for 1 second after death to prevent accidental activation.

Performance

  • Optimization improvements have been applied to reduce instances of FPS stuttering (hitching) on certain hardware configurations.
    • We’ll monitor the effectiveness of this change and continue to work on additional performance optimization
