PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Getting Spawn Adjustments And New Guns

An update is coming soon for the hit multiplayer shooter PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, and the biggest changes involve correcting mistakes in various spawn rates.

According to a developer post on Steam, a bug was causing certain items to appear too frequently – or not frequently enough – for their tiers. That will be fixed with the new update. For instance, the UMP will appear less often, while the UZI will appear more often.

The post also details the addition of a few new weapons, including the Groza (pictured above), which can only be obtained in care packages. Another new gun, a 9mm pistol with full auto mode, will spawn in the world.

[Update] Dragon Ball FighterZ Adds Future Trunks To Its Roster

Update: We recently learned that Future Trunks was going to appear in the upcoming Dragon Ball FighterZ, and now the game's official Twitter account has revealed a screenshot of the popular character in action (shown above).

Original Story: At its E3 reveal earlier this month, Dragon Ball FighterZ had only six fighters: Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Frieza, Cell, and Majin Buu. This week we get one additional character: Future Trunks.

As Siliconera reports, the latest issue of Famitsu shows a screenshot of the character in action, performing what looks to be a super move. Future Trunks is the son of Bulma and Vegeta from another timeline, wherein Androids 17 and 18 have turned the world into a post-apocalyptic wasteland. After realizing his current world is likely doomed, Trunks travels back in time to warn the Goku of the main timeline about the impending Android threat. He's also pretty good with a sword.

YouTuber Builds Junkrat's RIP-Tire With More Than 4500 Lego Bricks

Overwatch's Junkrat has a deadly, motorized weapon that zooms around the battlefield: his RIP-Tire. This tire can be remotely detonated to create an explosive blast. YouTuber ZaziNombies built a replica, though it can't roll (and isn't deadly, of course) like Junkrat's.

It's nonetheless impressive. It measures 25 inches long and over two feet wide, and ZaziNombies used over 4500 Lego pieces for its creation. To see how it was put together, watch the video below.

Reader Discussion: What Games Do You Need To Finish?

Reader Discussion: What Games Do You Need To Finish?

Look. It happens, ok? You start a long game but another game comes out while you're playing the first game that steals your attention away or you're getting married or you're moving or whatever, and then that game immediately becomes a part of your backlog.

For me, my current white whale is Persona 5. I played 40 hours of it, got distracted by work, and Persona is honestly the hardest thing to go back to. I know I will (I've done this same thing with Persona 3 and 4) but it just takes a bit of time. I just need to get my fill of Titanfall 2 and Wolfenstein and then I can go back. Promise.

What about you? What games do you need to get back to, reader?
