Yes, and developers are investing this money, even more, to constantly create new game modes which will keep the customer base uprising. Talking about Battle Royale games, PUBG has a great gamer base on its side. Both in the case of PC and Mobile PUBG is famous due to its realistic graphics and gameplay. Recently, PUBG has announced a new update for the game which is called PUBG Mobile Update 0.7.0.
What’s new in PUBG Mobile Update 0.7.0?
The last update which is known as the PUBG Mobile update 0.6.0 added the FPP or First Person Perspective to the game. Along with that, there was the addition of new mini-zone, weapon gallery, and improved team voice chat options. Moreover, the game also came with numerous bug fixes which made the game more enjoyable.
There are indeed a lot of changes coming to the PUBG mobile version 0.7.0. The main gameplay will remain the same. However, there will be the addition of new arcade modes, guns, and attachments. Along with that the new PUBG Mobile update 0.7.0 will also fix many present bugs in the game. Overall, the new update will improve the game and the user experience.
So without wasting more time let’s talk straight about the changes that you will be able to see in the new update.
The PUBG Mobile Update 0.7.0 will see the inclusion of new War Mode into the game. This new mode will feature a limited time combat experience where players will start the game with a random weapon. After death, the players will be able to respawn (re-jump into the game). The team with maximum points in the limited time will be the winner.
The lobby which currently looks like a mess right now will be cleaner. Just like the PC version of the game new update will make the lobby more neat and clean. Options like, crew, rank, shop etc will now take place at the bottom. There will be much more free space around the character with changes to the current positioning of options.
New Expression Animation System
The addition of Expression Animation System will include facial expressions for the character within a match and in the lobby. The player will be able to use various facial expressions.
Watch Your Friend Play
While a player will be in a match his/her friends will now be able to watch the match. So in case you are waiting for your friends match to end, you can now be able to directly watch him play.
New SLR Precision Shooter Rifle
The new PUBG Mobile Update 0.7.0 will also include a new weapon. The new weapon will be named SLR and it will be using 7.62 bullets. If you are confused about what is a Precision Rifle then let me tell you it will be a DMR type of weapon just like ‘SKS’ and ‘Mini14’ in the game. From our experience of the gameplay, we really liked the new SLR rifle.
Along with new weapon, there will also be new attachments in the game. There will be three new grips which are the light grip, half grip, thumb grip.
One of the biggest changes of the game will be the inclusion of new scopes with the PUBG Mobile Update 0.7.0. There will be an all new 3X scope and a 6X scope just like the PC version of the game. Moreover, the 6X scope can be adjusted to 3X. Earlier there only the 2X, 4X and 8X (rare) scope available in the game but now it will be more fun to try out the 3X and 6X scopes.
No More 8X Scopes in Assault Rifles
To make the game more realistic the developers have decided that the rarely available 8X scopes will not be compatible with Assault Rifles. Well, that means no more 8X kills with M416, M16A4, S12K, AKM etc. The highest scope compatible with these type of weapons will be the 6X scope. To use 8X scope one will need to have Sniper Rifles.
The weight of a fragmented grenade will now be increased from 12 to 18. Which means it will take up more space in your bag. Similarly, the weight of a Molotov Cocktail will decrease from 18 to 16. For smoke grenades, the new weight will be 14 which was 16 before the PUBG Mobile Update 0.7.0. Stun grenades will take even less storage as the weight will decrease from 14 to 12.
the PUBG Mobile Update 0.7.0 will make the drug Adrenaline a rare item. Which means it will be available only in drop crates and a very few locations of the map. Furthermore, the time taken to use the drug will be reduced from 8 seconds to 6 seconds.
Weapon Damage Adjustments
The update will slightly increase the damage of submachine guns, pistols, sniper rifles and precision shooter rifles (except SKS). Moreover, the damage coefficient will increase slightly of submachine guns and shotguns when hit at limbs, hands, and feet. Also, the replacement speed of submachine guns is slightly faster. However, the replacement speed of assault rifles will be slightly slower with the PUBG Mobile Update 0.7.0.
Optimised Spectator Mode
Performance of the spectator mode will be better. The developers of the game have put more efforts to fix bugs in the spectator mode. So after the PUBG Mobile Update, 0.7.0 spectating a teammate will be much more enjoyable. Moreover, the new spectator mode will also show character information and current weapon status.
