PUBG Update 7.3 is live on both console and PC. Newly introduced explosive, C4, is the biggest talking point of the update. Players are sticking C4 onto vehicles and committing a suicide attack.

Despite many bug fixes, PUBG Corp has yet to completely fix the game's glitches. This time, a player met their end as a result of a glitching player.

PUBG Player Dies From Floating and Shooting Through Walls Glitch

Carefully trailing an opponent, Redditor u/TheMint34 gets closer. Hiding behind a wall, the player peeks and spots the opponent. Oddly, the opponent is seen glitching through small distances. As if the opponent was teleporting or floating over small distances, the player hides.

Thought to be behind cover, the player is suddenly hit with bullets. Still behind brick walls, shots land into the player. A second later, the player dies from multiple M416 bullets despite the opponent not even facing the wall.

Discussion can be made about the floating opponent but would be harder for the kill. The movement of the opponent could be a result of lag. It is a common issue but could logically answer both issues. As for the kill, it is hard to argue a player's death if they are behind walls. The only other logical explanation, besides cheating, is that there was an opponent behind the player.

It would have been interesting to see more of the encounter. A replay of the fight or spectating of the killer would be helpful. It would identify which opponent killed the player and how.

Comments are adamant that the issue was lag. 'Rubber banding' occurrences has been rising since PUBG Update 7.3. Frustrating players and the PUBG community, players hope for a major PUBG fix.
