PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds follow Fortnite’s approach recently, releasing a Premium Event Pass with the release of the game’s newest map, Sanhok. A lot of the community wasn’t very happy with how the event pass was set up, and the latest patch addresses several community issues and aims to make the event pass better for players. Here’s everything you need to know about PC 1.0 Update 16.

Event Pass: Sanhok

  • Event Pass system's progression mechanisms have been adjusted.
    • Daily XP Limit 80 → 120
    • Minimum play time required to count towards mission progress: 5 minutes → 2 minutes
    • Minimum play time required to acquire XP: 5 minutes → 2.5 minutes
    • Base play time XP payment is now granted in 2.5 minute intervals, instead of 5 minute intervals. Previously, 2 XP was granted every 5 minutes, now 1 XP is granted every 2.5 minutes.
  • For Duo or Squad games, mission progress is updated when your team wins the game, or when your whole team is eliminated.
  • 'Reach top 3 without killing anyone in Solos' mission requirements have been changed. The mission now requires reaching top 3 with 2 kills or less.
