Those who are avid PUBG players on PC know that the game needs a lot of improvements. Aside from bugs and glitches, the gameplay needed some refinement and it looks like PUBG Corp. has taken note. PUBG update 30 is now available on the Test Server for PC and it brings a host of new features for the title, along with a new weapon, vehicle and numerous gameplay improvements. This update also borrows some features from the new battle royale game around the block, Apex Legends. Player characters will now be able to grab onto ledges, which should help them scale small obstructions like walls and fences. 

In addition to the Ledge Grab feature, a Radio Messages that are text-based quick pings a player can use to notify teammates of various scenarios have also been added. After the update, one can hold the mouse wheel or press F3 to access the option and select from eight preset messages. Players can ping their squad when they spot an enemy, need ammo or a medkit or backup. Additionally, the name and location of an item will also be shared when the system is used near an item.
