The free weekend of PUBG is now live on PC platform Steam which means that users download and play it for free.

The most recent update of PUBG is the first one to arrive after the Vikendi map reword hit with update 7.2. This is massive update with a lot of changes in it, and the primary ones include Ranked Mode, addition of bots to the game, and weapon and armor balances.
PUBG update 7.2: Details
Bots are finally here on the PC version of the game with PUBG update 7.2. Like in the console version, devs write that with a certain player base has become rather skilled.
Hence matching these people with lower skilled players is unfair. To balance this out bots are being added to the game.
The bots will have a the skills to use bullet drop mechanics and even understand proper aiming at players. Hence they can be dodged like you are dodging normal players.
A new ‘Ranked’ sub navigation option has been added to the ‘Play’ section of the primary navigation menu. Matches will feature a maximum of 64 players and there will be no bots.
Players need to reach a minimal Survival Mastery level of 20 before they qualify for ranked. Depending on their platform and region, players may need to verify their account using SMS before they qualify for Ranked mode.
Ranked mode games will be randomly played on Erangel, Miramar, or Sanhok. Ranked mode will have an overall increase in item loot spawns.
There are a total of 6 tiers in the Ranked system (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Master) with 5 Divisions (V – I) within each tier. A player’s current rank is determined by their Rank Points (RP) in a given queue.
Weapon and Armor Balance
Assault Rifles: “The M416 has long been the most powerful AR and one of the top guns in the game as a whole, so we’ve adjusted it and buffed some of the other ARs to give players alternative options.” Write the devs. With this M416, M16A4 and SCAR-L now have increased reload times.
M16A4, and MK47 Mutant now have decreased recoil when firing in quick succession in semi-auto and bursts mode and have tracers. Beryl M762 has Increased muzzle velocity from 680 m/s to 740 m/s and decreased recoil. Shotguns now have increased limb multiplier from 0.9 to 1.05 and head multiplier from 1.25 to 1.5.
Armor: With this new update, ‘destroyed’ vests will no longer disappear, and neither will your inventory space. In addition, vests will continue to provide 20% protection and slight aim punch reduction once destroyed.
The base protection level of the destroyed vest is the same no matter the type of vest you’re wearing.
Gas Can improvements:
The Gas Can can now be equipped in a melee weapon slot. Players can then press “attack” to pour gas on the ground. It takes around 7 seconds to empty the can. Spilled fuel can be set on fire with gun shots, molotovs, and grenade explosions.
Fire deals the same damage as a molotov, but burns longer. Spilled fuel evaporates in about 3.5 minutes.
