PUBG 1.2 Patch Notes
Runic Power mode
The new game mode of PUBG Mobile allows players to get access to special abilities. Choose from three Runes, then gather and use Rune fragments to support you in your fight to become the final battlefield survivor.
On Spawn Island, players can select their Rune energy form. In the current match, you will need to choose to carry either the Flame Rune, Arctic Rune, or Wind Rune.
You will get 2 skills after choosing a rune. An item is summoned by using the first skill, and the second skill gives you a boost. The use of these skills absorbs energy from Rune.
It is possible to acquire Rune energy in matches.
Rune Abilities – PUBG Mobile
Flame Rune : Summon ability-Summons a rolling flame wheel, dealing burn damage to enemy players that it encounters.
Boost ability-Adds a burning effect for a limited time to your ammunition.
Arctic Rune : Summon ability-An ice wall summons. It is possible to destroy each block of the ice wall separately. It can lift players or vehicles directly over them when the ice wall appears.
Boost ability-Increases Ammunition for a short time with a freezing effect. Freezing decreases healing efficiency.
Wind Rune : Summon ability-Summons a semi-transparent wind shield that decreases the damage fired from outside the shield by bullets.
Boost abilities- Increases the speed of movement and reload.
New Weapon – FAMAS
A new assault rifle that uses Ammo 5.56mm. In close range firefights, it can be loaded with 25 rounds, has the fastest rate of fire among rifles, and is excellent.
It is possible to equip the FAMAS with a Muzzle (Rifles), Scope and Mag Mag (Rifles). There is no foregrip, but it comes with its own bipod that decreases the recoil in a prone position when shooting with it.
It appears only on the map of the Livik Classic Battle Royale.
Power Armor Mode
EvoGround will launch the new Power Armor mode on February 5. Livik has created a new high-tech Power Armor. Nano Crystals and an Armor Blueprint must be brought to the Matrix Base to create your own Power Armor set.
Power Armor Chest Piece : reduces damage to the chest and increases the capacity of the backpack.
Power Armor Arm Piece : reduces damage to the arm and increases melee damage.
Power Armor Leg Piece : reduces damage to the leg and reduces damage to the fall. Gives the ability to dash quickly.
The assembly of the full Power Armor set unlocks its ultimate weapon, the Dragon’s Breath Grenade.
