What’s new in PUBG Mobile 1.2?
Runic Power Mode
In Runic Power mode, there will be three types of runes that give different powers to the player. You can choose the one that you like the most. And during the match, you can collect fragments of runes to gain an advantage over others. This mode will be available on the Erangel map.
With the help of the fire rune, the player will be able to release fireballs that damage enemies. Also, the player can temporarily use fire cartridges.
The Arctic Rune will allow you to create a wall of ice. Each block from the wall must be destroyed separately. During the creation of the wall, everything under it will go up. The player can also temporarily use cooling cartridges. Chilling will slow down the healing time for the enemy.
Wind Rune will create an air shield that reduces bullet damage. The player can also temporarily speed up the speed of movements and reloading.
Assault rifle “FAMAS”
FAMAS is a new exclusive assault rifle for the Livik map. It uses a 5.56 caliber and has a 25-round magazine. FAMAS has the fastest rate of fire of any rifle in PUBG Mobile. So it’s a great weapon choice for close-range gunfights.
