PUBG Tests Weapon Skins and Region Locking in New Update

It's not exactly quick, and hurts, hard, if you lose.

After seemingly conquering the world, PUBG Corp. finds itself playing catch up with Epic Games in the battle royale genre. It comes as part of the weapon skin patch that rolled out on test servers this week, the first time weapon skins have appeared in the game.

In the event there is no rank, but BP points are awarded for each match. In Battle Royale you can purchase new customization items for your Hero, glider, or pickaxe. EXP is earned the same way, and it unlocks permanent account features, such as special avatar icons, and goes toward increasing your account level.

Asked by PCGamesInsider.biz about the matter, the exec said that the game was a "social experience", as well as healthy, with groups of friends coming together to play the hugely popular title. Seasons last about two months.

Welcome to the VB PC Gaming Community!

Great news for new players looking for a little boost to get them started with an excellent looking skin and also long time players maybe looking for a quick way to get some V-Bucks. Players will be able to customize their weapons the way they want. You can even save multiple layout presets. But that is very much the case in early 2018, with developers Bluehole seemingly scurrying around to appease their players in a way Epic has become renowned for in Fortnite.

Weapon skins have come to PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. So if you run into another player, hand to hand combat is your only choice. All of this automation helps cut down on how much you need to manually organize your inventory, and if you don't like this process, you can completely disable it.

According to Epic Games' CEO and co-founder Tim Sweeney, cross-platform play across all platforms is in everyone's interest. Whichever way you choose to play, from the sound of it, you might be in for a blast of fun. Instead, it's more just us picking out the single game out of the week's releases that we think is the most noteworthy, surprising, interesting, or really any other hard to describe quality that makes it worth having if you were just going to pick up one.

According to an article by Kotaku, these bots seem to be created to appear more frequently at earlier levels of play, and are created to ease people into the game. This means your first outing is quite likely to be successful. Since then, PC players have experienced various test builds, before enjoying a fully launched experience. Turns out, it may have been the presence of witless AI bots giving me a confidence boost.
