PUBG Update Overhauls Throwables, Incorporates Balance Changes, More

Bluehole Studios has released update #14 to the PC version of PUBG an the main focus of the patch is to overhaul throwables such as frag grenades, stun grenades, and Molotovs.

Here is a break down:

 

  • Frag grenades: In a recent update we removed the frag grenade’s knockback effect, greatly reducing its potential impact. To restore the trusty frag’s killing power we’re buffing its effective range and its damage.
  • Stun grenades: Stun grenades have never been the most popular pickups, and recent changes to frag grenade audio effects have made them feel a bit redundant. To make stun grenades more rewarding, they’ll now affect stunned players’ vision, hearing, and their ability to shoot accurately. We’re also bumping up the stun grenade’s effective radius and introducing new animations so it’s possible to tell when your grenades have stunned opponents.
  • Molotovs: These have traditionally been among the least popular items in the game. To make molotovs more useful, we’re increasing their area of effect, introducing new properties that allow fire to spread along walls and wooden surfaces in houses, and imposing new debuffs on players who catch on fire.

Here is a video outlining the changes brought in by the latest update:
