A new update for the Xbox One version of PUBG has greatly increased the damage done to vehicles.
As per the full patch notes on Reddit, there is now “Increased damage to the vehicle body, and significant damage to the wheels when targeted with gunfire.”
In fact, a lot of the work that’s been done seems to be to clip the wings of keen PUBG drivers:
- Increased vehicle damage when successfully targeted with a grenade
- Both driver and passenger will suffer increased injuries from crashing into objects or other vehicles
- Slight reduction to player damage when being struck by a vehicle
Aside from the vehicle tweaks, there has also been the usual raft of bug fixes in this patch, with crosshair tweaks, auto-run being disabled when aiming down sights, and tweaks to the map view settings.
Recently, the Xbox One version of PUBG has rocketed past the four million player mark – that’s another million players joined in just two weeks. On top of this, PUBG Corp. has announced its plans to donate to a variety of gaming charities in 2018.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
