In the fight of the PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS developers against cheaters and hackers, there is now a new one Report function. This allows players to report possible cheaters from the replay feature. So it is no longer necessary that you have been killed by the cheater to use the in-game report tool.

The PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS developers ask you to make extensive use of the function so that such fraudsters who ruin the fun of the game can be blocked as quickly as possible. The new report function is on the current test server update and will be uploaded to the live server as quickly as possible after a few tests.

Further improvements to those Bluehole works are the game performance and the server stability. Both are points that are permanently at the top of the priority list.

Furthermore, the revised crate system tested with 2 new boxes. One box will open directly, the other requires a key. On the PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS test server, every player will receive 100,000 BP and 6 Early Bird keys. Early bird key is the new key variety that Desperado and Gamescom can open boxes.

All items in the boxes are purely cosmetic and do not offer any advantage in the game. The items that you get from the boxes on the test server will not be transferred to the live server.

Below you will find the complete patch notes for the test server update:



  • Added more objects around La Bendita on Miramar to increase the amount of cover


  • Reduced the visible distance when parachuting down in order to test the optimization of server and client performance at the early phases of the game
