Today’s PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Xbox One patch changes vehicle/player damage back to its original value.

If you’ve been keeping up with PUBG patches on Xbox One, you’ll know that last week’s update made several changes to vehicle/player gameplay.

The update greatly increased player damage to vehicles, while also reducing the damage players take after being hit by a vehicle. This latter change was controversial, and, in today’s patch, developer PUBG Corp reverted it back to its original value.

Now, running players over and/or hitting them with vehicles is powerful once again. The update also brings improvements to the vaulting systems, and a couple of ther minor bug fixes.

Catch the full list of notes below:


  • We received a lot of great feedback following the changes made to vehicle/player damage. We continue to tune and balance this element of gameplay, and are therefore reverting back to increased damage if a player is struck by a vehicle.

Bug fixes

  • Resolved an issue preventing players from vaulting over specific ledges and/or windows
  • The camera will now remain in the correct location following player death
  • Vehicles will no longer relocate to another position on the map after the player disembarks
