If you logged into PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds for a quick match of battle royale today, you may have been greeted with a new update. It’s a pretty small one, only spanning 24MB, but it’s been deployed to fix a pretty persistent issue fans have had problems with for a while.
Announced via the official PUBG Twitter, this patch was meant to resolve an issue with long range hits not registering in some games, which as you can imagine can potentially be a fairly prolific issue if you’re a sniper or really good at tagging far away players. It was also deployed to fix an issue with the client crashing while players hang out in the lobby.
PC players, today we deployed a small patch that fixed an issue with long range hits not registering intermittently and an issue with the client crashing in the lobby. Please make sure to download this update if you haven’t already.

If you log in and see the prompt to update your client, make sure you go ahead and take care of it. It’s a small fix that you’ll want to apply so your game can run as smoothly as PUBG can run. That way you’ll be getting at your chicken dinner in no time.
