3 Best Changes in PUBG Update 7.2

While the exclusion in Ranked Mode is appreciated, the decision to add bots altogether is a terrible one, but despite that, 7.2 wasn't all bad.

While PUBG Corp has decided to implement bots on PC, and they gave a defense to the decision, "This update also brings Bots to PC servers, which we know has been a controversial topic among the Community the last few weeks. Rest assured, we plan on making improvements to how bots currently work and most importantly, bots will NOT be in Ranked Mode games."

While the exclusion in Ranked Mode is appreciated, the decision to add bots altogether is a terrible one, but despite that, 7.2 wasn't all bad. Here are the three best changes in PUBG Update 7.2.

3 Best Changes in PUBG Update 7.2

3. Assault Rifle Balance

The game has been a rifle dominated game since it first came out in 2017, and most weapons feel useless unless it's the early game. "The M416 has long been the most powerful AR and one of the top guns in the game as a whole, so we’ve adjusted it and buffed some of the other ARs to give players alternative options. "

Basically, the game has buffed shotguns and empowered other rifles so it isn't just a one gun meta.

2. Armor Changes

Vests won't take up the space it used to and now they will always give a damage reduction and slight aim punch reduction despite the armor being destroyed.

  • Vests not only provided armor but also provided additional inventory space. However, it felt pretty bad to immediately lose that space when your vest was destroyed in combat. Your survivability also drastically decreased once your vest was destroyed. leaving you extremely vulnerable until you found a new one. With this change, ‘destroyed’ vests will no longer disappear, and neither will your inventory space.

1. Ranked Mode Ruleset

The inclusion of Ranked Mode is one of the most requested features in the game, and it's finally here! And since bots will never be in ranked games, it makes the mode even better. PUBG Corp goes rather in depth about the rewards, tiers, rules, and leaderboard.
