PUBG Mobile 1.5 Beta Update: Key Features and Patch Notes
Erangel Transit System – Hyperlines
A new transit system called Hyperlines is being introduced to the PUBG Mobile map Erangel. This high-speed transit system is nothing but a levitating transport that looks like a futuristic train that runs without any tracks. It seems to have multiple routes spread throughout the map and players will be able to board them from specific stations, where these vehicles will be halting for just 10 seconds.
Air Conveyer Launcher
A structure called Air Conveyer Launcher will be introduced to PUBG Mobile which will allow players to literally launch themselves in the air, towards a particular direction. These structures will be found in some urban areas across various maps, with players being able to control the direction and height of their launch before taking off.
This seems to be inspired by another Battle Royale title called Apex Legends and has been added to facilitate a faster mode of transportation. Players will now be able to cover huge distances quickly, while also adding an additional gameplay component that allows for more vertical engagements.
New transportation vehicles called Anti-Gravity Motorcycle will also be added to PUBG Mobile along with the new update. This bike will be able to levitate in mid-air, hovering over both land and water at a low altitude. Apart from being an amphibious mode of transportation, it might also allegedly be faster than the regular bike.
Special robotic dogs will be added to the game which will help players to check for high-quality combat supplies in an area. These robots will be found in particular urban areas, acting as a limited-range scanner when activated to help players equip themselves better.
New Weapon: MG3 Light Machine Gun
The highly awaited light machine gun MG3 is finally arriving in PUBG Mobile along with the new update. The gun which will be classified under the ‘heavy weapon’ class will be an airdrop exclusive weapon, making use of the 7.62mm ammo with a flexible rate of fire that users can adjust anytime between 660 rounds per minute and 990 rounds per minute.
New Game Mode: Matrix Arena
Though not much information is currently known about this game mode, one thing that is known for sure is that it will be a futuristic event that will have its own playable mode in Classic matches.
New Graphics Settings
A whole new graphics settings will be making their way to PUBG Mobile along with the new update. This will be a blessing for all the users with a low-end device as the new setting specifically targets them.

Prior Air Summoning Device
This device can be used in urban areas across all maps to summon a Prior Air Drone for an airdrop.
Tactical Telescope or Binoculars
This special equipment will be added to the game with the purpose of scouting enemy players. The ranged scope will make it easier to spot distant enemies and even mark them for other allied players on the team.
Throwables and Consumables
A new wheel format has been added to make it easier for PUBG Mobile players to use throwable and consumable items.
- Upon swiping the Consumable/Throwable icon players will be able to open the wheel and switch or use items.
- Players also have an option to enable the ‘Quick Throw’ feature available in the settings menu. Once enabled, players can simply hold the Throwable icon to instantly use that item.
- Players can additionally enable the ‘Quick Wheel Throw’ feature as well which is available in the settings menu. Once enabled, players can simply swipe the wheel and upon briefly selecting the intended Throwable icon, will instantly use that item.
After claiming victory, players will now be able to summon a statue to both show-off and celebrate: The MVP of the winning team will further be able to summon a Victory Statue to any specified location and on top of players will further be able to use special celebratory emotes near this Victory Statue.
Players will now be able to enter a ‘Photo Mode’ after securing a victory in classic game mode. They will have the option to choose whether to hide or display their teammate information while in this mode, and the best part is that after fishing taking their photos players can even share them.
One of the new feature being added is an indicator that informs a player about the status of their ammo. Whenever a magazine is close to getting over, the number indicating your remaining ammo will change colour as follows,
