This week’s PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds update adds a new parachute skin and cosmetic crate.

Following the update, players will be able to purchase the “Bengal Tiger” parachute skin for $4.99. This new item cannot be traded on the Steam market and is equipped via a new “Gear” option in the customization menu.

Alongside this new skin, the Aviator crate will be available to acquire. The crate requires the Aviator Key to open and contains a number of new cosmetic items.

Other changes in this update include the Lightweight Grip and Half Grip for the Vector, a decrease in the spread of shotgun pellets, and a number of bug fixes. Read the full patch notes below:

Gameplay
  • Both the Lightweight Grip and Half Grip can now be attached to the Vector.
  • Some minor weapon balance adjustments:
    • First shot from the M16A4 now has less recoil.
    • Decreased the spread of shotgun pellets.
    • Shotgun chokes and duckbills are now less effective at decreasing spread (so the effective spread for a shotgun with a choke or duckbill will be similar to before)
UI/UX
  • CUSTOMIZATION > GEAR tab has been added. Go here to equip parachute skins.
Localization
  • Added support for Ukrainian. Thank you to all the Ukrainian players who participated in the translation process!
  • Game lobby now supports multiple languages.
    • Multiple languages will be applied to various lobby components such as lobby menus (Play, Customization, Store, etc.), the options menu, and crates
    • 19 different languages are supported
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where certain buildings in Miramar were shown with default textures
  • Fixed some walls in Miramar that could be partially passed through
  • Removed the white mark that appeared alongside the aircraft icon on the minimap
  • Scope reticle settings should no longer reset when weapons are dropped and picked up again
  • We’ve improved the holographic sight’s reticle. It’s now the same size as a character silhouette seen from 100m away
  • Certain animations on the buggy and minibus have been fixed
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes caused characters to sit at odd angles if entering into vehicles from a prone position on a sloped surface
  • Fixed an issue causing red dot and holo sight reticles to get smaller and blurry when swapping weapons
  • “Damage-received” sounds should no longer play after winning a game
New Crate – Aviator
  • A new crate (Aviator Crate) with new outfits has been added. Find it in the STORE menu
    • Aviator Crate requires an Aviator Key to be opened
  • TEST SERVER ONLY: For testing purposes, we will provide 100K BP, 20x Weapon Skin Keys, 20x Early Bird Keys, 20x Aviator Keys, and 10x Aviator Crates to all test accounts.
  • Added new parachute skin
    • The “Bengal Tiger” parachute skin can be purchased separately as an individual item for $4.99(price will vary slightly in some regions, based on global exchange rates). It can be purchased only once per account.
      • Bengal Tiger is unable to trade in Steam market
    • It is purchasable in STORE > ITEMS menu
