PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has received a fresh update that took care of a few remaining bugs in patch 24.

During testing, PUBG players reported an especially annoying bug in patch 24 that forced the game to display in windowed full screen, despite selecting native fullscreen.

The bug wasn’t fixed in time for launch, and it’s been annoying players over the holiday break. For some, being stuck in windowed full screen means the loss of significant performance, and it’s especially evident on the new map Vikendi. Speaking of full screen fixes, the mouse cursor should no longer move erratically between screens in dual monitor setups.

The patch, less than 90MB, also fixed a UI inventory bug, and plugged some map exploits. Finally, the animation issue that caused pressing Alt (such as to free-look) while aiming would switch to third-person aiming, has too be taken care of.
