PUBG Xbox One Update Adds New Control Options, Reassigns Pistol Button

Following yesterday’s PC update to Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, the developer today addressed a number of specific issues in the Xbox One version of the game. On the game’s official forums, a community coordinator noted that the team is pushing the fix to address “an in-game issue that was undermining the core experience for some players.” And while addressing that more serious bug, today’s patch also fixes some smaller issues.

But bugs haven’t slowed down the growth of PUBG’s userbase; despite some prevalent issues, the game has surpassed 3 million players on Xbox One. The game is still included in Xbox One’s Game Preview program, with no specific word on when it will go into its full retail release on console.

The full patch notes are listed below:


  • Pistols have been removed from Y button’s weapon rotation and grouped with the melee weapon.
  • Players can now equip pistols by pressing ‘up’ on the D pad.


  • Continued improvements related to player “rubber banding.”
  • Enhanced server performance while parachuting.


  • Added a new controller preset to options menu.
    • Type B (new preset) now supports:
      • Holding LT to aim down sight.
      • Holding LB to use 3rd person perspective aim sight.
  • Controller guide has been updated to include the new controller preset.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue where players repositioned out of the battleground after certain actions and remained invulnerable until the end of the match.
  • Additional memory and non-memory related crash fixes.
  • Fixed the inability to join duo/squad through invites outside of game.

The update also highlighted two things that will be addressed in the games next patch:

  • Dropping objects causes the player to switch weapons.
  • User is unable to switch grenade types when tapping right on the D-Pad.
