The devs also have added the feature to throw items requested by players directly to them.

When a teammate requests healing or ammo items through radio messages (mouse wheel), an icon will appear above their head, prompting teammates to throw the requested items to them by pressing the interact button (F).

Though items can only be thrown for a maximum of 15 meters. If you are running, or in a difficult to reach a position, teammates may be unable to throw items to your location and and in that case the items will instead fall nearby.

Also, items will be directly added to your inventory. If inventory is full, then the items will fall at your feet.

One major change in this update is the melee weapon change. Now, you can throw melee weapons and can also stack more than one in your inventory. There are two different melee damage categories when thrown.

  • Machete, Crowbar, Sickle: The maximum throwing distance is 40m and damage will decrease from 75 to 25 based on the distance.
  • Pan: The maximum throwing distance is shorter than other melee at only 30m but the damage range is 90 to 40 based on distance.

The update for PUBG also contains some fresh changes for Zombie mode. Now, after elimination by a zombie, you will become a zombie. There are couple more changes which you can read in the full patch notes.

In war mode, you will now spawn on the ground instead of diving down. This was a much needed change and was requested by players for a long time.

There are some more Bug fixes and changes in the UI/UX, Replay System, Audio, and overall performance as well. You can read them all in the full patch notes here.
