PUBG Mobile Version 1.8 Patch Notes

New Classic Mode Map

Leading the list updates is the new Classic Mode map called Aftermath. Go to Unranked – Classic Mode and select Aftermath to access this new map. The gameplay takes players to an area where bombs and volcanic eruptions have entirely transformed the terrain in Livik.

Firearms have been altered to include an AC Core Module, making them easier to aim and control. The Playzone is reduced in size of the urban area and its density to make it easier to detect enemies. Tactical Glasses, which show the firearm damage, are available for characters by default. The interactive zipline also helps players move easier to the next Playzone. Finally, Recall Towers are introduced to give all players a single chance to respawn on the battlefield.


Mode Selection Improvements

PUBGM added some changes to give players different gaming experiences. The unranked and ranked modes have been separated, the former not providing any rating points while the latter has the Classic Mode available for Erangle, Livik, and Sanhok. Other available modes are as follows:

  • Classic: AfterMath, Erangel, Livik, Sanhok, and other Classic maps.
  • Arena: Santorini, Training, Team Deathmatch, Team Gun Game, and other classic Arena modes.
  • Other Modes: Player VS AI, Metro Royale, Quick Match, Arcade Mode – War and other casual game modes, Payload 2.0, and other EvoGround modes.

In addition, Classic Mode no longer supports multiple selections. The Drop Tactics feature has been removed, while Mode Records only retained the mode location. For screen improvements, the mode selected screen has its content simplified. 


Classic Mode Improvements

A new Supply Shop has been added to the game where players can purchase supplies and other tactical items by using currency found all over the battlefield. There’s also the new Recall Mechanic, where players have one chance to return to the battlefield using the Recall Tower. These towers can be found in different maps and modes, including Erangel and Livik – Ranked Modes – Spider-Man™ and Aftermath.

Other notable upgrades include players being able to continue swimming in a near-death state but with reduced speed. A Hit Marker feature generates an automatic marker once a player or a teammate hits an enemy. The Auto-Jump also enables players to jump in the direction of a marker automatically.


Spider-Man Themed Game Mode

Available in Classic Mode (for Erangel and Livik), your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man swings into action in PUBG Mobile! Players can fight alongside Spidey to battle mysterious monsters in this themed mode!
