So many games of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds finish with me getting shot out of nowhere by somebody I by no means noticed. It’s the genuine Plunkbat expertise – although a bug that turns gamers invisible is likely to be taking issues a step too far.
That bug positively exists, and is unquestionably being investigated by builders PUBG Corp. The solely query is whether or not it’s a latest phenomenon.
The devs are looking into at the least one confirmed encounter – this one, in reality.
Reddit consumer “Chazbot2001” has a roundup of 5 recent invisibility un-sightings. That’s stable video proof that the bug exists, however I don’t share their certainty that it’s turn into extra prevalent. As folks within the thread level out, studies of invisible gamers have been cropping up for a very long time – and 5 prior to now month doesn’t represent “something different entirely”, as Chaz claims.
Then once more, that thread additionally has a good few extra studies of invisible gamers. Then once more once more, given the quantity of people that’ve seen the thread and the probability of anybody who’d encountered the bug to chip in, in all probability that’s purely the results of a self-selecting pattern.
Then once more once more once more, no matter whether or not extra folks have turns into invisible these days or not… no one needs to be invisible at this level. The game’s been out of beta for almost a yr, and the “FIX PUBG” developer initiative was declared a success – by the devs – over two months in the past. In all honesty, I haven’t discovered Plunkbat’s jank too bothersome because the early days – but it surely’s arduous to think about a extra galling bug to die to.
