According to the latest updates, the developers will be addressing the bugs around the in-game movements. Apparently, the 28.01 patch will bring a lot more fluid, dynamic, and detailed animations to the movements. These include the transitions in walking, running, using weapons, and changing directions, most likely all the major details appealing to the Battle Royale fans. Here’s a glimpse of the fixing.
