PUBG patch brings emotes and friend lists

PUBG patch brings emotes and friend lists

Away from the new emotes, fans will be able to use a new in-game friends list for the first time this week.

Not entered the battlegrounds yet? The game has continued to receive updates since its arrival on the Xbox One in late-2017 and a Spring 2018 Roadmap was released recently which confirmed that updates will continue throughout 2018 as well though at 2-3 week intervals.

Here are the full patch notes for PUBG update 7.

The update was announced last week, and the addition of emotes in particular was something of a contentious point for the PUBG community. You will have 12 default emotes to choose from, though we don't know what they are, and "more emotes will be added in the future". Holding the emote menu button, which is defaulted to the tilde key (~) will allow you to pick the emote you wish to use.

Another 37 achievements have also been added to the Steam Gaming list today, meaning more for hardcore players to try their luck at. Do you think they chose the right approach?

A friends list specific to PUBG has been added to the game, and you can add up to 50 people to the list.

The friends list is a one-way follower concept, rather than a mutual acceptance between players.

To make finding friends easier, the 30 most recent players you were teamed with will appear in a Recent menu.

There are tweaks and performance improvements here and there as well, with lag reduction and bug fixes in lots of different areas. Following the recent anti-cheat update, PUBG Corp. didn't offer any further information about when or if this patch would be coming back. However, limb and vehicle penetration, which was due to be tested this month, has been pushed back.
