PUBG Update 2.49 Patch Notes – November 18, 2023


  • Adjustments have been made for AUG and Dragunov.


  • Horizontal knockback increase: +4%

  • Vertical recoil increase: +9.8%

  • Recoil reduction while crouching: -16% → -13%


Developer Comment: In Update 25.2, our goal was to foster a more balanced AR environment by adjusting the AUG RPM. After monitoring the post-update win rate metrics, we saw a small drop in the AUG win rate from 53.3% to 53.0%; however, this remained fairly consistent with the figures before the RPM adjustment. Given the AUG’s continued dominance in the AR category (excluding Care Package weapons like the FAMAS and Groza) and its stats surpassing those of the Beryl M762, we saw the need for further adjustments.

Through this update, we have decided to intensify its recoil to reduce stability in combat while preserving the distinctive character of the AUG. We’ve also tweaked the recoil reduction while crouched, ensuring it doesn’t provide excessive advantage in specific scenarios.

The Dragunov, on the other hand, lagged behind other DMRs in terms of kill distribution and win rates. To improve its usability, we have addressed the main concern our players have been mentioning: increasing the Dragunov’s RPM and improving its recoil recovery to make it a more consistent and versatile weapon.

For an in-depth look at the reasons behind these changes, we invite you to our upcoming PUBG Live Care Package, where our in-game Unit Director plans to provide a full explanation. We will also address your queries in real time during this session. For details on the livestream schedule, dates, rewards, and more, check out the PUBG Care Package: Episode 2 Announcement.

In our continued commitment to providing a diverse gaming experience that is not monopolized by a single weapon choice, we value and invite your feedback.

How to Play

To better assist with strategic planning, we have added the flight path of the initial plane, which will remain throughout the game, both on the world map and on the minimap.
