Today the 18th update for PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS PC 1.0 appears on the public test server. PUBG 1.0 Patch #18 contains a new Sanhok exclusive weapon and vehicle, as well as the new feature of Custom Matches.


The Custom match feature will be tested extensively on the PTR for the time being, before it will hopefully be made available to all players on the live servers. In a custom match, players can set all parameters of the match. From the spawn rates for weapons, armor, vehicles to the behavior of the circles, everything can be varied. It should even be possible to create war modes and zombie mode game types.

A somewhat detailed blog by the PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS developers on the subject Custom Matches was launched today on Steam released.

The new weapon that comes with the update is the QBU and can be found on the Sanhok map instead of the Mini 14:

The Rony Pickup Truck only appears on Sanhok and can transport up to 4 passengers. The off-road vehicle shines especially on the hilly landscapes of Sanhok.

Below you can find the rest of the patch notes for update #18:


  • Custom match UI has been updated and custom match creation is available for all players, in open beta on our test servers. Our plan is to expand this test to live servers, once the system is proven to be stable.

  • Fixed an issue where, when the backpack was full, players couldn't throw away extended mags
  • Fixed an issue where the camera would rotate 180 degrees upon death, making it difficult to understand which direction you were killed from.
