PUBG Xbox 1.0 Update #3 Is All About Skins & Supply

Having a Joker?

If you’ve got any niggles with PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on Xbox One, then chances are that update #3 to the 1.0 release has done little to fix your problems. This update really is all about skins and how you get them, adding a new Supply System and bringing a rather out-of-the-blue Suicide Squad tie in with custom Joker and Harley Quinn skins.

The Supply System works by awarding XP for time played and completing missions, with a chance of a permanent reward or BP every time you level up, and a guaranteed permanent reward every 10 levels. A new make up tab now exists in the Appearance category for you to put some slap on.

Custom matches are at least a rather substantial addition to the game’s features, giving you both classic mode and the Team Deathmatch War Mode, with a few presets outside of that. At least 10 players are required to start the match.

Still, there’s not that much actual substance to this update, which Xbox players might find a tad frustrating when there’s current reports of a PlayStation 4 release floating around.

Here’s the patch notes:

Supply System

  • Added Supply System
    • Earn XP through play time and completing missions to level-up and obtain rewards.
    • Each 10 levels you will receive a permanent reward.
    • Every level-up on the way to each permanent reward will grant you BP and also a chance to receive an additional permanent reward.
  • You can level up and get rewards when you fill the Survival gauge with survival XP
    • You must click “Claim” to receive the completed mission XP
  • Observing teammates grants 50% less XP than while alive

Skin & Items

  • Added a MAKE UP tab in the APPEARANCE category.
    • The APPEARANCE category has been added to the store, where you can purchase additional Hair and Make-up options.
  • Changing APPEARANCE such as face, hair and/or gender will not cost BP (some paid items for face and make-up are excluded from this).

    • Things to keep in mind when creating custom matches:
