PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Update 8.2 has hit the battle royale game's live servers, with some snazzy new toys and gameplay tweaks in tow. Alongside some weapon remodels and re-textures, world updates, and quality of life improvements are the "monstrous" new MG3, the decoy grenade throwable, the chance to tuck that helmet out of sight, and even some nostalgic new (old?) lobby music.
First up, the most recent weapon to come to the multiplayer game's care packages is the "fast firing MG3 light machine gun," the latest patch notes detail. "With two different rates of fire, a bipod for stability, tracer rounds to help you keep track of your spray, and increased weapon damage to vehicles, there's a new reason to fight over the big red box." The weapon only spawns in normal matches, but packs a punch, with firing rate options of 660 rpm and 990 rpm, 75 rounds, 820 m/s muzzle velocity, and even a bonus boost when aiming at vehicles: 1.25 times the damage.
As for that PUBG decoy grenade, developer PUBG Corp. says: "Disorient your enemies and cover your movements with the new Decoy Grenade. Available as world loot on Sanhok, the Decoy Grenade will make fake firing sounds for about ten seconds after thrown, giving you a few moments to make your move". Read the rest of the story...
