Crouch Jump After Patch PUBG
Last week Battleground’s released a new patch to the live servers. The patch fixed many bugs, improved UI and performance, and also removed the ability to crouch jump. That was for a few minutes before players began to figure out new ways to do it. Players have been using programs like AHK (Auto Hot Key), practicing pressing crouch and jump at the same time, or editing local config files. I would recommend using a program like AHK over editing your files, but if you can’t get AHK to work, you can try editing your config files.
We recommend going with AHK as it is working for us. Feel free to recommend other programs in the comments.
Setting up Auto Hot Key for Crouch Jumping in PUBG:
- For this to be setup you need a software program like Auto Hot Key. To download Auto Hot Key go here.
- Right-Click on your desktop.
- Find “New” in the menu.
- Click “AutoHotkey Script” inside the “New” menu
- Give the script a new name. Note: It must end with a .ahk extension. Ex. MyScript.ahk
- Find the newly created file on your desktop and Right-Click it.
- Click “Edit Script”.
- A window should have popped up, probably Notepad. If notepad or another text editor opened past this into your file:
~ Other Users have also reported using this script works as well, try both and see which performs better for you:
- Click File > Save
- Double click the file on your desktop to run it.
Setting up Config Files for Crouch Jumping:
- Press Windows Key + R.
- Type “%localappdata%\TslGame\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor”
- Open the file “GameUserSettings.ini” with Notepad.
- Ctrl+F “Jump”.
- After “Keys=((Key=SpaceBar),” add “(Key=SpaceBar,bShift=True),”
- Ctrl+F “ToggleCrouch”.
- After the first comma (,) paste “(Key=SpaceBar,bShift=True)))”.
- Ctrl+S to Save.
Crouch Jumping without any Key Bindings:
If you are looking to play it safe and don’t want to risk a ban or temporary suspension, there are other ways to crouch jump. You can do it from right within the game by binding your crouch key to something that is easily hit at the same time as your space bar. Currently players are recommending binding your couch key to the “C” key on your keyboard.
You then press the space bar, and crouch button at the exact same time. You will need to practice this as most users report getting around a 60% success rate.
Why crouch jumping is even important?
The main use of crouch jumping is to allow players to jump out of windows. PlayerUnknown is trying to remove that so that it either takes quite a lot of skill to be able to crouch jump, or completely remove it and force players to use stairs / doors to get out of buildings.
