PUBG Lite PC News: You can kill your own teammates
PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) Lite PC is coming very soon to Steam. The game is a lighter version of PUBG-PC which can be played on low-end PCs. The gameplay will be similar to what we get in the original PUBG and not like PUBG Mobile.
Hence, the UI of the game and other things resemble PUBG-PC. The core gameplay experience will be similar to what we get in the PC version. The mechanics including recoil and other tactics will also be very similar.
Keeping this and the realistic experience that PUBG strives to deliver in mind, the ability to kill your own teammate with a gun or melee will be allowed in PUBG Lite. In an announcement posted on the official site of PUBG Lite today, they said that the testing for blocking friendly fire has ended.
They revealed in the announcement that-
"One of the fun elements of Battle Royale is the realism of the battle and by removing the team kill feature this element was decreased."
Hence, PUBG Lite will allow players to kill their own teammates.

Why allow this?
You may be asking why would the developers allow a thing like this. For those of you who only play the mobile version of the battle royale, this idea may sound absurd. It has to be kept in mind that the PC version has had this feature for a while now.
Yes, this feature will indeed allow for toxicity within the community. But blocking something like this will divert the game from the realistic gameplay it strives to achieve.
It will also make the game more competitive as a player will now also have to focus on not shooting their own teammates in the middle of a gunfight.
In addition to this, it will also make the community play squads and duos with people they are only familiar with. The squads and duos will thus be more competitive and exciting to play.
It is to be noted that PUBG Lite will be having harsh punishments for players who intentionally kill or knock their own teammates.
