  • DP28 
    • Reduced bullet speed, reduced damage at long range, reduced headshot damage.

The DP28 has been the crown jewel for many players, but the gun is seeing a major nerf following the update. Now, the DP28 has had its bullet speed reduced, its damage decreased at long range, and even its headshot damage lessened. According to the developers, these changes were done to “see what happens,” so DP28 might get another rework if all doesn’t go too well.

New Carry feature

With the PUBG 1.7 update, players will now be allowed to carry their knocked teammates and relocate them to another location. This will help players to revive teammates away from all the action in a safer place. However, the player carrying their fallen partner won’t be able to use their weapons.
