PUBG Mobile Season 4: What's new

PUBG Mobile: Beryl M762 automatic assault rifle

The fourth season of PUBG Mobile is bringing a range of new additions and improvements to the battle royale game. For starters, Season 4 adds a new rifle, the Beryl M762, which is an assault rifle chambering 7.62mm caliber bullets. Its damage per second score is higher than the AKM with the rate of fire being close to that of Groza, but it all results in an even higher recoil. The M762 will be available in all the three maps- Erangel, Miramar and Sanhok.

Some Sanhok exclusive updates include dynamic weather along with a new vehicle, the Scooter.

PUBG Mobile: Hardcore Mode

Apart from these new additions, Royale Pass Season 4 also brings the Hardcore mode for Erangel to offer the same PC experience on mobiles as well. In the hardcore mode, players won't have any visual cues or enemy footsteps indicator which means that its time to put on your earphones if you want to survive. Players will also have to manually open doors, pick up weapons and reload their current weapon everytime in the hardcore mode. This does raise the bar high but it would be interesting to see how players survive this new mode without any visual cues or indicators on the map which is how PUBG is really played on PC.

This update adds more firearm finishes, rare outfits, new hairstyles and character faces. Mission Cards have also been added and the redemption feature has been fine tuned as well.

This new update also brings increased chances of certain crate drops. For the upcoming Black Friday, a new event has been created with heavily discounted packs.

With the Royal pass, users can enjoy weekly challenges and play up to 100 RP level. There will be two options to choose from - Elite Upgrade and Elite Upgrade Plus. PUBG will also give special benefits and access to locked items to users who cross 100 RP level.
