PUBG PS4 FPP coming December 27! Vote for which mode now!

After weeks of waiting, PUBG PS4 players will be able to play FPP on December 27. Firstly though, there is a vote to see which mode gets FPP first.


Whilst it has been confirmed that FPP will be coming to PS4 on December 27 (at least that’s the plan), it will be only for one mode.

Consequently, there is a vote to determine which of solos, duos and squads will be the first to get the FPP mode. There are separate votes for NA and EU servers. Currently, solos are leading both polls.

Some Reddit users are arguing that squads should be the first to get FPP because this would allow solos and duos to participate via the one and two man squad feature.

The introduction of just one FPP mode has disappointed the PUBG PS4 player base. The reasoning behind the slow rollout though, is to ensure fast matchmaking and queue times. You can cast your vote with the links below:

The PS4 port of PUBG has only been available since December 7. This was nearly a year after PUBG came to Xbox in the form of a “Game Preview Edition”.

To the annoyance of PS4 players, PUBG launched with only the TPP mode across solos, duos and squads. The Xbox version suffered the same issue whereby the FPP wasn’t available until weeks after launch.

PS4 players can’t complain too much though. The PS4 launch has been remarkably stable in comparison to Xbox. The PUBG game preview edition was plagued with performance and glitch issues. Therefore, at the time, not having FPP was a minor problem.

With that said, the PUBG PS4 is running at a (mostly) solid 30 FPS. And of course this has now been complimented by the addition of the much wanted FPP mode.

The difference between FPP and TPP on PUBG PS4…

FPP Mode vs TPP Mode

The main difference between first person perspective and third person perspective is clear in the name. However, there are more intricate differences. It is these variances that have resulted in a large part of the PUBG community playing only FPP.

The passion for FPP was evidenced by the hundreds of posts, comments and tweets pleading for the mode. The PUBG PS4 forum on Reddit was spammed with the demand for FPP to be opened. In the amongst that was players, who were presumably annoyed at having to play TPP, venting their frustrations about being killed due to TPP.

This is where the primary difference between the two modes come into play. FPP players argue that playing in first person emphasises shooting skill. In third person mode you can peak around corners without having to show yourself.

This gives you a sometimes insurmountable advantage meaning you can jump out at the opportune time to kill the enemy. Moreover, it is argued that FPP mode discourages camping.

The debate between FPP and TPP will go on for a long time to come. At least now both modes are available on PC, Xbox and finally PS4.

Blatant PUBG cheater gets banned by a dev live on Twitch

A known cheater in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds managed to get hit by the banhammer while he was streaming live on Twitch, creating a wave of cheers among community members.

The Twitch account under question goes by the name of ‘vesprine,’ but the player himself is widely known in PUBG lobbies and online communities for perpetually making new accounts just to use cheats.

“He keeps resurfacing. Same guy over and over. He tries to join Plausible and gets insta-banned,” Reddit user ‘The-Basic-Bro’ said. “He needs a hardware ban at this point. He legitimately cheats non-stop… He has joined looking for squad groups on Reddit and the last two times I have called him out and disgraced him and had him banned.”

While some players want to see more stringent action taken against the player, PUBG Community Manager who goes by ‘Hawkinz’ did his part to stymie the cheater’s effect on the game.

PUBG has come a long way since its launch, but hackers have still been a major problem.

During one of his streams, the player had resurfaced to show off more PUBG gameplay supplemented by the use of in-game hacks.

In the middle of his broadcast, he got a notification in PUBG that read: “Restricted Account – Your session will be terminated due to use of hacks.” Though not much has survived the Twitch account since he was banned, a screengrab by user ‘701dirty’ immortalized Hawkinz’s incredible response as the moment played out.

According to 701Dirty, the ban happened shortly after over a hundred people clipped and reported the streamer while he was playing.

“A few hours later over 100 people clipping and (saying) they got one of his accounts,” 701Dirty wrote. “I saw him have two accounts banned after matches and he tried logging into several already banned accounts… crazy.”

Cheater banned in real time from PUBATTLEGROUNDS

Since its launch, PUBG’s servers have been swarming with hackers that have put a damper on the once-dominant battle royale.

The developers have issued multiple ban waves since the game’s launch in 2017, but are still combating the prevalence of cheaters years later.

Unfortunately, unless more meaningful action against PUBG’s hackers is taken, players like vesprine are going to continue to ruin matches, get banned, then reappear under another name.
