PUBG Reveals New Fever and Militia Spring Crates

It's time to spring forward into fashion with some fabulous new looks for your PUBG avatars.

5

While the main objective in a round of PUBG may not be to look gorgeous while fighting your way towards a fresh, hot chicken dinner, there's no rule against making your avatar a fierce and stylish beast. So, some players may be pleased to hear that PUBG has revealed their new spring crates and they're chock-full of great outfits for the fashion-forward fighter. Starting on Feb 22 players will get access to the new 70s and 80s retro-inspired "Fever" crate and the savage new "Militia" crate. 

According to a post made by the dev team on Steam:

"FEVER crate with the strong feeling of spring can be purchased with BP and unlocked with Early Bird keys. MILITIA crate, which will allow you to show off your combat outfit, is dropped randomly among the four existing crates, and it is free. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to get new outfits!

As with the Gamescom Invitational Crate, you can get the whole set along with a single item when opening the FEVER crate if you are lucky."

The team will be giving out keys and BP's on the test server for players to check out the new threads a day before they fully launch, but those will not carry over into the full game. If players are curious about their drop odds, they can check out the numbers in the PUBG patch notes. The two new crates will be in rotation in the full game starting on Feb 22.

      Glad the server was down for three hours last night to add this.

      Tell me they did something else too. Ping based matches? Or is that one already in?

        The death cam now doesn't work, and the game constantly stutters for everyone

          A small price to pay for new crates!

          In other words: Adjusted death cam and frame stuttering performance to be consistent with the rest of the game experience.

        you can now see how many people are on the airplane and who jumps.
        it looks like a seat selector when you buy plane tickets.

        Maybe it fixed the random lockup on loading into matches. I had to end-task the game 3 different times last night due to that.

        World



        Replaced some fences in Miramar to unbreakable fences or walls in order to optimize the client.




        Gameplay



        When the player is riding in the airplane, they will no longer be able to see the inside of the airplane. This is to improve the early game client and server performance
        Other players will be visible once they jump out of the airplane
        When riding the airplane, you can check the number of remaining passengers via the new UI element at the bottom left of the screen




        Replays



        When reporting someone through the replay system, we now receive a 1 minute replay file centered on the point of your report
        It is impossible to report through a replay file which has been created longer than a week ago
        It is impossible to report the same player multiple times in the same replay file




        Bug Fixes



        Fixed the issue where the player would die from falling when vaulting and climbing
        Fixed the issue where after reconnecting to the game, the player would get a glitched view when using ADS on their weapon
        Fixed the issue where the player didn’t receive any damage after entering a vehicle from a prone position and then exiting while the vehicle was moving
        Fixed the issue where after entering the vehicle (passenger seat) from prone position and using heal/boost items, the player was shown using the items in prone position instead of sitting down




        Misc.



        Made changes to prevent the reduced heal/boost time cheat
