The changes are small but necessary this week.

The week 27 update for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is now live on all servers, and it’s a minor one, but totally necessary.

Bluehole’s pacing of updates has definitely slowed down in the past few months, as it said it would. Part of that is due to so much work being done in the updates in the months following the game’s release into Steam early access.

This week’s patch notes highlight just a few changes, and they include a fix for a bug that made shadows disappear mid-game

One of the more noticeable changes, however, is that Bluehole has “improved the synchronization between player aim and spectator aim.”

Anyone who’s played PUBG on a team knows that spectating a teammate has been kind of a mess. Sometimes it will appear that your teammate is shooting at the ground in front of them, when in reality they’re in the middle of a gunfight with someone across a field. Hopefully this fix will change that.

Bluehole also enhanced the breathing animation in spectator mode, as well as added a new feature in the settings to adjust the zoom-in and zoom-out speed of the world map.
