PUBG Vaulting & Climbing Update Deploying To Test Servers Today

After a couple delays, the PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds update featuring the highly anticipated vaulting and climbing mechanics are going live today.


The vaulting and climbing update for PUBG was delayed earlier this month due to some internal issues and, because this is such a crucial step before the official retail launch, the devs wanted to take their time getting it right so that the tests can run without much hindrance. It appears they've had enough time getting things lined up as the official PUBG twitter account has revealed that the vaulting and climbing update is coming to test servers today.

Test schedule

  • PST: November 13th 06:00 PM – November 14th 06:00 PM
  • CET: November 14th 03:00 AM – November 15th 03:00 AM
  • KST: November 14th 11:00 AM – November 15th 11:00 AM

Region & Modes

  • NA SOLO First-person / Third-person
  • ASIA SOLO First-person / Third-person

In addition to the changes to movement, ballistics have been modified. Bullet drag, accuracy, and hit areas have been changed to give a more realistic touch to the experience, which will further set it apart from PUBG's arguably largest competitor, Fortnite Battle Royale. Full details for the new update can be found on Steam.

      Only for a day or 2, because it is very unstable.

        Man, I don't wanna know how buggy it's going to be if the rest of the game is considered stable.

          I've not had a crash in weeks and I play almost daily. It's janky but it's not unstable.

            Meanwhile, a squad mate and I get at least one crash every play session.

            Every night we play in squads a random one of us will have a crash or hang. It's not even consistent so I don't think it's a local problem with any of our hardware or software.
            Luckily most of the time it is just getting back to the main menu, pretty rare in game but still happens.

      It seems fairly stable, but pretty janky when moving down slanted geometry (ie rocks).
