The latest patch is now live on all platforms.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds patch 17.1 has now gone live on consoles, officially bringing it to all platforms. The latest update for the battle royale brings a newly reworked–or perhaps un-reworked version of Sanhok to the game, in a form that more resembles its original appearance. The patch also brings a new weapon, balance updates, and more.

PUBG’s Sanhok map was remastered back in 2020, but despite multiple tweaks and updates since, the community overwhelmingly preferred the map’s original form. As explained in the patch notes, multiple parts of the Sanhok map have been reverted to their pre-rework forms, including Bootcamp’s iconic lobster-shaped building, the Docks, the Ruins, and the Quarry. The map’s original blue-and-green look has also been restored.

As well as the visual updates, multiple more recent features are being removed including the Jammer Pack, the Decoy Grenade, and the Loot Truck. The studio has said that this won’t be the end to Sanhok updates, with the team “continuously discussing various methods on improving Sanhok moving forward.”

A new weapon, the ACE32 Assault Rifle has also been added to all versions of the game. In the patch notes, the developer explains that the ACE32 is a high stability, low recoil 7.62mm assault rifle that should be simple for players to master, intended to flesh out a weapon pool lacking in full-auto 7.62mm weapons. The new rifle will be available in every map, and all modes except esports mode custom matches.

The new update also ushers in Season 17 of PUBG’s ranked mode, so players should remember to pick up their rewards from the last season of ranked play, and start grinding towards the next one.

RANKED LEADERBOARD

TACTICAL GEAR

Recent feedback and metrics showed the Tactical Pack and Spotter Scope were overperforming than intended. To fix the low-risk high-return issue of being able to safely and instantly detect enemies with the Spotter Scope, we have decided to work on additional design and development features instead of simply balancing them out. Therefore, it is difficult to apply the Spotter Scope changes in time for this update but we are working to announce them in the next 17.2 update.

Additionally, as the Tactical Pack continues to show powerful performance, the following change has been made:

TACTICAL PACK

  • The Tactical Pack can no longer store other Tactical Gear (Drone, EMT Gear, Spotter Scope).
