Size of PUBG Mobile 1.5 update
Looking at the game’s previous updates, the upcoming 1.5 update is expected to be around 600 MB for Android devices, whereas the iOS update is expected to be around 1.5GB.
Erangel Transit System
This new transit system can be a game-changer in the Erangel map, as this system will help you travel across the islands. This might be sad news for the players who love to camp around the bridge to stop rotations of enemy teams, although you need to be a bit careful as someone might be waiting for you inside the transit system.
Air Conveyor Launcher
The Air Conveyor is a new type of machinery that can be found in the urban areas of the map. They allowing you to launch yourself into the sky for long-range transfers or sudden strikes. Moreover, you can control the direction it sends you. This can be useful to enter the zone a little late, but you also need to make sure that you land correctly, as someone might kill you before you even touch the ground.
This is a high-tech motorcycle that can hover above the ground and water at low altitudes by using levitation technology. With this, players won’t require boats to travel across water, and the motorcycle will also help spot enemies better because of being in the air.
Patrol and Protection Robot
Special robotic dogs can be found in a few urban areas of the map and they have the ability to scan the entire area for high-quality combat supplies after being activated.
New weapon: MG3
The PUBG Mobile 1.5 update will not only add a new transit system to the map, but a brand new weapon called the MG3 will also be making its way to the game too. The gun belongs to the Light Machine Gun category and will be using 7.62mm Ammo. MG3 will be available in drops only, and the unique feature about this weapon will be its flexible fire rate, which can be adjusted to fire 660 or 990 rounds per minute.
Remaining Ammo Indicator
Another new feature that the 1.5 update is bringing into the game is a new remaining ammo indicator feature, which will indicate how much ammo is remaining in the magazine by changing the color. Here’s how the colors will vary depending upon the number of ammo remaining:
- When you have 25% ammo remaining, the number will turn yellow.
- When you have 10% ammo remaining, the number will turn red.
