PUBG gets friend lists, emotes, and achievements

Following the update, players will be able to use 12 different emotes; PUBG Corp. says it will further expand the system with more emotes in the future. Check out our noob's guide to PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

Apart from the smaller map, "PUBG" will also be introducing an emote system to the game, something which "Fortnite: Battle Royale" has also had since its release. If you have a PUBG account, you can add friends regardless of the platform they're using, whether it's Steam,, or DMM.

Official patch notes for the latest PUBG build have been released by the support team, and confirm that a range of new emotes, among other features, have been released. By default, the emote key is ~ whereby specific emotes can be selected by left-clicking.

As for the Steam achievements, there are 37 of them, from basic ones like simply getting a kill, to rare situations like getting into a vehicle which already has an enemy player in it. Independent of Steam friends lists, the PUBG friends list "is a one-way follower concept, not a mutual acceptance between players".

Next are the friend lists.

Main menu voice chat has been added as well, which means you and your team can speak and figure out your game plan there. The update also introduces some client and server optimization which should improve performance.

According to Bluehole Inc, this will include mitigating lag and stutter instances and alleviated frame drop and lag occurrences happening when players are pushed together.
