PUBG Corp. has released the Update 7.3 to all PC users after having evaluated it in the Test Server. Update 7.3 brings a host of new additions including a C4 throwable, a new train line in Vikendi, changes to vehicle explosion dynamics, parachute follow, and more apart from the usual bug fixes and performance improvements.

PUBG Update 7.3 is now available to all gamers on PC after having spent quite some time in the Test Server. The new update offers several gameplay enhancements, survivability improvements, new additions to the Vikendi map, and a new explosive alongside the usual performance improvements and bug fixes. 

A notable addition in this update is the C4 throwable. The C4 in PUBG can stick to almost any surface including vehicles (not to players, though) and will automatically detonate 16 seconds after being thrown. There is no way to detonate the explosive early or to stop it, but the intensity of the beep keeps increasing closer to detonation within the C4's damage radius of 25 m. The C4 throwable can be found as world loot in the Erangel, Miramar, Vikendi, and Sanhok maps.

Update 7.3 also brings back the parachute follow back feature to normal matches, so teammates can now land together. There are also changes to the eSports tab and the menu now shows the next Pick'Em Challenge, which will be available throughout July. The Vikendi map now includes a new train line with additional stops and scenery changes. 

The changelog also notes that the Survivor Pass: Cold Front will end on July 15. From July 15 to July 22, there will be a grace period before which players will be able to claim any unclaimed rewards and redeem any remaining coupons. 

The update also brings in the usual performance improvements and bug fixes. Console players are scheduled to get Update 7.3 on June 23. For more information, check out the complete changelog at the Source link below.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
