As we have seen previously with the 1.5 update of BGMI with Mission Ignition, the official updates for the recently released Battlegrounds Mobile India and it’s predecessor PUBG Mobile, by their respective developers Krafton & Tencent are almost rolled out back to back. Today in this article, we take a comprehensive look at the new modes being released in the game and all the gameplay changes and in-game mechanics that will be implemented in the game with the release of update 1.6. Let’s go!
Patch Notes for update 1.6 in Battlegrounds Mobile India
Release of the Flora Menace mode
With the release of the latest themed gameplay mode of Flora Menace, the alien plant species of Yarilo shall be invading maps in the game- Livik, Sanhok, along with Erangel. In order to make sure that people who prefer playing other maps over Erangel don’t miss out on the fun of the new mode, developers shall bring the thematic gameplay experience to these three maps of the game.
While playing battle royale matches in the mode of ‘Flora Menace‘, the players shall be transported onto the Cell Matrix – a spaceship of the Yarilo alien species. Amidst your battle royale game, you can take part in some good old TDM-style gunfights. Replicating the features like health regeneration and limited re-spawn up to three times, it makes for an exhilarating and unique addition to the battle royale experience of PUBG Mobile.
Depending on the number of gunfights you survive on the Yarilo spaceship, you earn a certain amount of in-match currency which provide you with exclusive weapon drops and protective gear equipment which can help you survive the other skirmishes. The skirmishes continue for a limited time on the Yarilo spaceship hovering above the ground, and the player is ejected from the spaceship once it ‘docks’.
Re-release of OG game modes
Beside the release of the brand new themed mode of Flora Menace, this new season update doesn’t lack choices regarding modes to play, with the ton of content that Krafton is bringing back into the game. The developers are re-launching seven different unique modes from versions of PUBG Mobile, which shall make for a wholesome gaming experience, and nostalgia shall be high among the players who have been witness to gameplay in these uniquely-themed modes.
The modes that are being brought back into the game are – Metro Royale, Titans’ Last Stand, Runic Power, Zombie modes of Survive Till Dawn & Infection Mode and Payload 2.0.
Gameplay Changes & new in-game mechanics
- Durability of vehicles – the UAZ and the minibus durability have been increased. This particular change will bring about a twist in the way gunfights pan out in the game. As players of the battle royale game of PUBG Mobile or BGMI would know, it doesn’t take much to destroy the jeep with a good spray or two from an assault rifle.
- Transparent User Interface
Players can now choose between toggle options of ‘enable’ and disable’ regarding the visibility of controls in-game. It can be done by clicking on the game logo of Battlegrounds Mobile India, available in the battle royale match that you happen to be playing.
- Flight Path visibility – Another notable addition to Battlegrounds Mobile India is Flight Route’s availability. Traditionally, the flight route was only presented to the players at the start of the match in the pre-game lobby, up until the drop ship had crossed over the map. But now, players can check out the flight path at any moment throughout the game. This will be a really helpful addition to Battlegrounds Mobile India, in order to devise rotation strategies and to make an educated guess regarding where one can find other players or squads.
Upon update to the latest version of the game, Krafton shall provide players with two classic crate coupons and a ‘Flora Menace’ themed background for the lobby, which shall be available for a period of 60 days in-game.
