PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has a bug where if the player minimizes the game with the Alt-Tab hotkey while loading a match, the third person camera will occasionally force the Y axis to stop working and to behave as if the free look button is being held forcing the player into the first person.

Other players said that they could move the character’s weapon up and down, but they could only look straight ahead the entire game. It didn’t matter if the character aimed up or down: he could only look and shoot straight ahead. Players tried tapping out, shooting, picking up things, but nothing seemed to help.

On the Battlegrounds forum, a user also posted a photo that shows the crosshair of the character aiming straight forward even if the character aims up. You can see the bullet impact on a container from the front even if the player is aiming up or down.

Other players experienced more bugs including weird loading, lags and all these affected only the third person mode game. The first person mode is not affected according to players.

Another user stated that he couldn’t look up or down and the character’s head would move around as if it was in free look. As soon as he picked up a helmet, the game totally crashed.
