PUBG Mobile Sandstorm mode coming soon; details
According to the announcement on Twitter, the company asked players to gear up for the new mode. Talking about tips regarding the upcoming mode, PUBG Corp added that players should “always be in range of shelter”. This will ensure that they don’t get caught out in the open when the sandstorm hits out of nowhere. As soon as the sandstorm hits during the game, they should find shelter and hunker around till the end. The company has not shared much about the upcoming mode beyond the promotional posters. However, the leaks regarding the upcoming mode indicate that there will be two kinds of Sandstorms or Sandstorm modes.
Watch: Tips and Tricks
The first Sandstorm mode will be normal where a large sandstorm will appear at a random location on the map. But, the second one, the heavy Sandstorm mode will cover the entire Miramar map. We are unsure if these will be two different modes or two different types of Sandstorms inside the game mode. This will result in limited visibility so players need to be careful while driving in the Sandstorm. Considering the limited vision, users will have to rely on sound in this map to guess rival teams.
Beyond the focus on sound, the limited visibility will also impact the weapon selection on the map. Opting for Assault rifles and SMGs will be much better in this mode This is because most fighting will happen in medium to close range. In addition to Sandstorm, PUBG Mobile will also get Scramble Mode and Jungle Adventure Guide mode.
