What is the new Arctic Mode?
If we talk about the Arctic, the first thing the comes to mind is the harsh freezing weather. Snow Storms will appear periodically in Vikendi Map, where Players will need to maintain and keep their body temperature stable to survive. Otherwise, they will continuously lose health. Arctic Mode will be similar to Classic Mode gameplay and will offer players a more realistic survival experience.
How to Survive the New PUBG Mobile Arctic Mode
To play this mode, you must maintain your body temperature. Here are some basic ways to keep your temperature hot given bellow:
- You have to light a fire using a lighter and add branches to it to increase the heating time.
- Acquire raw chicken by hunting chicken and roast it on the fire, then consume the cooked chicken to restore body your temperature.
- Players can also use items such as the heater or heat packs.
- Snowboards from the Winter Festival will also be available for players in this mode to enjoy snowboarding.
- Added Drones that can scout the surrounding area, leading to new tactics.
- and many more
Background of the Update
Although any addition is always welcomed, the artic mode update is not new. A similar game mode was introduced in PUBG Mobile Chinese beta back in mid-2019. Going by the released details of Arctic Mode: Cold Front Survival, it seems directly taken out of the former (Chinese beta). Furthermore, the arctic mode is said to feature the same items, such as a lighter, heaters as well as the same hunting system.
However, it is not exactly a bad thing. Given that PUBG Mobile has already tested the feature extensively, we can expect a better optimized bug-free gameplay. Also, we might end up with a bunch of new features that were not present in its predecessor with future updates. Only time will tell. Overall, we are pumped to test things out by ourselves once the Artic mode is live. Are you?
