PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has a new patch on Xbox One that brings more improvements to performance, and updates the controller bindings.

PUBG developer PUBG Corp has been tweaking the game’s controls on Xbox One since the previous patch. Though the control scheme is largely the same, some changes have been made.

In this case, players are now able to double click the left stick to auto-run, and drop equipped weapons with Y even in the inventory screen. You can also cancel drinking/healing animations while using the inventory screen.

After being changed in a previous patch, the grenade cycle function has now returned to clicking right on the d-pad. The game’s controller guide has been update to reflect these changes.

Outside of that, the patch added some bug fixes and performance optimisations. The update is available now.


Here are all the patch notes:


  • Auto-run function has been added (from a standstill, double clicking L3 will activate auto-run)
  • Players can now drop equipped weapons with Y button when inventory screen is active
  • Grenades can once again be cycled by tapping right on D pad
  • Players can now cancel casting actions while the inventory screen is active


  • Continued optimisations and crash fixes


  • Game controller guide has been updated
