PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' Second Monthly Update Is Live, Sick Motorcycle Tricks Intact

Can't wait to get sniped while popping a sick flip.

After some teasing and a very slight delay, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ second monthly update is live. Last update saw the addition of making the melee-prone frying pans bulletproof—much to the chagrin of some players, and enthusiasm of others. The latest update, detailed on the game’s Steam Early Access page, boasts even more changes: from stability to motorbike physics.

That’s right, baby. You can now launch a bike into the air and propel yourself (and maybe a comrade riding on the backseat) into a flip, leaving a player absolutely prone to gunfire while pulling off sick tricks. Or, potentially, dazzling your enemies into laying down their weapons in sheer awe. The patch may have only gone live just this morning, but players, as seen on Reddit, are already testing the new motorbike in all its flippable glory.

The new motorbike physics aren’t the only content update. Also tossed into the fray is a new sniper rifle, the VSS. The VSS is a powerful suppressed sniper, found only in care packages dropped by planes and very rarely at spawn points. The Sniper has a permanently attached 4X scope, making it deadly for distant passersby. With the bike physics and new gun, miscellaneous bug and quality of life fixes (you can make the mini map transparent now), the latest update is a healthy one.

Earlier this month, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds hosted a charity tournament to commemorate two million copies of the game sold. The tournament ended up raising $223,357.00 for the organization Gamers Outreach. The game is available on Steam Early Access for $29.99.
