PUBG Console Update 6.3 will buff the Tommy Gun significantly, adding the ability to equip sights and upping the fire rate, among several other weapon balance changes.

PUBG players have long counted out the Tommy Gun, in large part because of its inability to equip basic sights. The weapon will now use red dot and holographic sights, have a fire rate of 750 instead of 700, fire more accurately, and experience less recoil.

The patch will also add balance adjustments for the M249, the UMP-45 and the DBS. See the full list of weapon balance changes below, and learn about the new Panzerfaust rocket launcher here.

PUBG Console Update 6.3 arrives on live servers Thursday morning.
