PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is getting a small patch this week that fixes a few minor issues.

The new Battlegrounds patch is already live on test servers, with the intent of pushing it out to everyone else later this week if the test goes smoothly.

The biggest change it makes is a decrease to item spawn levels on the starting island. This is referring to the live rounds, not the lobby. Some players would travel to that island at the start of the round and have enough healing items and weapons to rejoin the action on the main island with only the blue wall to worry about.

Find the patch notes below:


  • Decreased the Starting Island item spawn levels in order to adjust the item balance on the Northeast side of Erangel

Bug fixes

  • Eliminated the fire animation and effect that occured in the Starting Airplane when a player was on fire from a molotov cocktail
  • Fixed a bug that enabled a character to hold a main weapon and frying pan simultaneously
  • Fixed a spectator mode bug of flickering weapon UI icons
