About Ed Thorn

Ed joined Metabomb in May 2017 and puts together many guides across the site.

Our PUBG V 1.0.7 guide contains all the changes introduced with patch number seven and includes details on server, client, gameplay improvements and more.

In their ongoing mission to improve PUBG’s gameplay experience, PUBG’s development team have been ironing out bugs, optimising servers and adding in brand new content to keep the game moving forwards.

Limb and vehicle penetration was going to be introduced this month, but unfortunately there’s been an alteration in the developer’s plans. Thankfully there are still many more changes in the latest patch which more than make up for it.

Lag spikes, stutter instances and frame issues have been addressed at the beginning of a match and in dynamic firefights. This latest patch has made the game environment one that’s less bug ridden and a little smoother - perfect.

Below we’ve outlined all the changes introduced with Patch 1.0.7 and broken them up into sections to make it easier to navigate.

Make sure you visit our core PUBG Guide hub when you're done here. It contains all of the most important tips and tactics you need to win more games.
