PUBG Aim Acceleration Gets A Fix in New Patch

Aim acceleration in PUBG was one of many problems players encountered with the XB1 version of the game, but it's easily resolved with a handy slider in Update 4.

Bluehole's PUBG took the world by storm and continues to work its way into people's gaming lives with its release on Xbox One's Game Preview program. But it's been a far-from-perfect transition to home console, with users pointing to multiple crash issues and problems with mechanics as close to game-breaking, with aim acceleration the most damning of the bunch. For the uninitiated, aim acceleration in PUBG drastically affects crosshair movement speed, and for many experienced players, it can cause quite a problem.

Players' pleas have been heard, though, since Bluehole included an aim acceleration slider in its latest PUBG patch. Now, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds noobs and grizzled shooter veterans alike can, it's hoped, adjust the sensitivity to a level that meets their needs by tweaking the new slider in the in-game options menu.

The update is now live for all Xbox One players. Below are the full patch notes:

Gameplay

  • Aim acceleration can now be adjusted by players via in-game option
  • Player weapon damage has been increased against vehicles. We will continue to monitor player feedback and telemetry and make further balancing adjustments as needed in future updates
  • FPP Solo matchmaking queue will be made available for NA / EU / Oceanic servers. We will open other modes within those regions as concurrency allows
  • Fixed an issue that caused indoor lighting and shadows to appear too dark and blueish
  • Analog stick acceleration added while exiting the plane and while parachuting

Optimization

  • PhysX performance enhancements
  • Server FPS slightly increased
  • Client FPS slightly increased
  • Some VFX received slight optimizations

Option

  • Music on/off option added

Bug Fixes

  • Addressed a number of known crashes
  • Fixed a UI issue that occurred when multiple players attempted to loot from the same source

Josh Broadwell's gaming career began early--1993, to be exact--when he was introduced to the Super Nintendo and Super Mario World. Despite all the magnificent games the SNES and, later, the original PlayStation had to offer, it wasn't until the GameBoy Advance era that he finally discovered RPGs, which quickly became a favorite genre. Games like Fire Emblem [Blazing Blade] and Golden Sun hold their places on his best games of all time list alongside more recent discoveries on the PlayStation Vita, such as The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky trilogy and the Persona games (and yes, 4 Golden is the best Persona, end of story). Josh began covering gaming in 2017 as part of a writing internship with GameSkinny as he sought to diversify his skillset and...more »
