Quite the hefty update.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds developer Bluehold has released the full patch notes for the game’s month 2 update coming later this week.

The patch notes come via a post over on the game’s community hub on Steam. Alongside a slew of bugfixes in the hope of making the survival title more stable for players, the month 2 update also brings with it some neat new features. Players will be able to get their hands on a new motorbike to traverse the island on, as well as a sniper rifle to help pick off targets from afar. Additionally, the month 2 update also includes a targeting fix to improve accuracy when shooting down a scope.
