It seems that the squad in PUBG Mobile will soon find a new way to cross the landscape. According to a video posted by Mr. Ghost Gaming, players will soon be able to play a helicopter in-game. According to the video, the new vehicle will appear in the helipad above the school. The entire squad of players will be able to board the vehicle with one player acting as the pilot and the rest doubling as gunners. The helicopter itself is based on the Boeing AH-6 light helicopter.
The addition of the chopper should add a dose of verticality to the gameplay, noting that almost all gameplay is conducted on Terra Pharma. Other additions suggested in the video include homing missile launchers, grenade launchers as well as an RPG that fires non-homing missiles. New equipment has been added in the form of a pair of binoculars, which can be used in an artillery strike at a location. Another new addition is the vehicle repair kit, which (as the name suggests) lets users repair vehicles.
It should be noted that these new additions are not yet part of the PUBG Mobile beta, so it is possible that they have been added to the Tibby version of PUBG Mobile. To recall, there are two versions of PUBG Mobile in China, one developed by Lightspeed and Quantum Studios, and is available globally. The other is developed by Timi and is available only in China. Although there are helicopters in the lobby in the PUBG beta, there is nothing that players can yet interact with them.
In addition to helicopters and heavy weapons may indicate a particular focus on combat vehicles. It should be noted that the PC version of the game received a new vehicle in update 30, which was released in June. The new vehicle is the BRDM-2, an amphibious armored assault vehicle. It does not have its own weapons, but provides high durability against bullets and can travel over land and water. It does not spread naturally in the game and players have to flare and call it when they are out of the safe zone.
