PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS Console Update 7.3 is set to be released tomorrow, June 23.

PUBG Patch 7.3 for PC was released to Test Servers on June 10. A week later, it was released on Live Servers. The Console update is nearly identical to the PC patch. This includes the addition of C4 and changes to vehicles, but won't include the parachute follow feature.

Here are the best three changes in PUBG Console Update 7.3:

1. Vehicle Changes

  • Vehicles will no longer explode immediately after reach zero HP unless via large radial damage such as C4 and the Red Zone.
  • The engine will stop and set on fire. In five (5) seconds, the vehicle explode, enough time for the player to exit the vehicle.
  • Most vehicles now have different damage multipliers. Each multiplier is different for sections of a vehicle.
  • It ranges from 50-100% and can be categorized from lowest to highest: roof, body, engine.

2. C4

  • C4 is introduced as the new throwable weapon. It is a highly dangerous explosive weapon.
  • It will detonate after 16 seconds and cannot be detonated early or deactivated.
  • Its damage radius is 25 meters with a lethal radius of 15 meters.
  • The C4 will even damage players in the radius who are behind walls or cover.
  • Best of all, the C4 will stick on most surfaces, including vehicles. Players have already stuck C4 to vehicles and blew up opposition players.

3. Anti-Cheat Update

  • PUBG Developers have added a new anti-cheat encryption pack along with this update.
  • It's aim is to eliminate cheaters more efficiently and tackle those who have slipped through before.
  • SMS authentication is in the works but will still need quite some time before being finalized for console.
  • Hopefully, the new encryption pack works and cheaters, including radar hack users, are no longer or significantly reduced in the game.

PUBG Console Update 7.3 is set to be released at 4 a.m. on June 23 after the five (5) hour maintenance.
