PUBG Parachute Changes: Everything You Need to Know

PUBG Parachute changes entered the PUBG PTS on Monday, as ​the PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS parachute system was overhauled. The changes were created to improve the parachute experience as a whole, including making it more smoother.

Here is everything you need to know about the ​PUBG parachute overhaul.

Freefalling: The PUBG parachute changes include new additions that will make the process more smoother than before. Players can hold left shift to put their character in a dive at full speed toward the ground. Turning speed is much faster and has more control, responsiveness, and precision. There are new freefall animations, too. 

Parachuting: Holding sprint, the default shift button, helps players drop faster and land quicker. Holding walk, left control, allows players to glide when they want to travel a longer distance. PUBG Corp also announced players can cut the parachute while relatively close to the ground with the new changes. It will allow players to strategically get to their drop point faster, though they can take damage if they drop too far.

Colliding with buildings or objects while parachuting will automatically cut their parachute. The speed at which players land will now matter. "Landing too fast may force your character to roll, or roll for longer, before you can gain full control of your movement," the post read. The parachute will no longer instantly disappear after landing. 

The new parachute system was implemented in the ​latest PTS patch
