PUBG MOBILE update to bring Death Replay, new weapons and Season 12 goodies: Here’s what’s new
It’s been almost two years since PUBG MOBILE hit the Android and iOS app stores, and since then, the game has received countless number of updates. The game was initially a pure battle royale game but as time passed, PUBG kept on adding new gameplay modes as well as new features to keep the gameplay existing. The game is now set to get another update that will bring in new weapons as well as celebrate two years of the game.
Already available on the beta version, PUBG MOBILE’s next update is going to be titled 0.17.0 and it is going to bring new content to the game. There are no new gameplay modes or maps this time but the team is ensuring that there’s enough stuff to make the gameplay exciting. Some of them are based around weapons and most of these will make the gameplay full of action. The much-awaited death cam is also coming to the game with this update.
If you are looking forward to try out something new in PUBG MOBILE, here’s what you should watch out for.
-DBS is a new double-barrel pump-action bullpup shotgun that has been designed in a way to induce more damage in a short amount of time. The weapon will be available in special crates and airdrops for the time being and it can use the holographic, red dot sight and up to 6x scopes.
-The good old UZI can now also be equipped with a red-dot or holographic sight, which means players can shoot with greater accuracy.
Extreme Cold Mode:
We heard of a new Cold Mode making its way to the game and the update 0.17.0 is bringing it finally. The name is a little misleading as this mode will let players try out everything to survive. Players will have to hunt for food by killing animals or light a fire in order to survive. A cold wave will inflict damage upon the player’s health and a timer will keep showing how long before the next wave comes in so as to let players prepare the shelter.
So far, you can only use a single type of marker on the map but the update will let players use eight different types of markers. Players can now mark enemies, positions, spot for attack and more.
The Death Replay has been available on the PC version since a long time and it is now coming to the mobile version. The feature will show how you were taken by the enemy. This will let players learn from their mistakes and avoid the same error the next time. Players can also use this to report hackers in the game.
No, this isn’t the Erangel 2.0 map but it will certainly bring in a few elements from the new map. The UAZ and Dacia will be updated whereas some locations might be upgraded with better effects.
The Season 12 will also come in with the next update and this one marks the second anniversary of the game. As usual, there will be a bunch of skins, clothes and other items themed on the celebration. Some mini-games are also expected to be part of the game where players can win in-game prizes.
