What are PUBG Mobile 2.1 Leaks?
The recently release PUBG Mobile 2.0 update has received a massive response from mobile gamers all across the world. Many curious gamers, however, have already begun to speculate about the upcoming PUBG Mobile 2.1 release.
The upcoming PUBG Mobile 2.1 update will most likely be released between July 10 and July 14, with the 13th being the most likely date. The most recent updates were released right before the end of the present RP. The Month 12 RP will most likely end on May 15, resulting in the time frame described above.
PUBG Mobile 2.1 Update Features
Here’s the list of the features that are most likely to get added in the new PUBG Mobile 2.1 update:
The upcoming PUBG Mobile update will include a new gun, which is an upgraded and improved version of the existing crossbow. The biggest difference between the old and new crossbows is the firing animation, and the new crossbow appears far more realistic than the previous one.
Both will do the same amount of damage, but this crossbow will have a longer range and the fire will go farther than the old one without collapsing.
New Gun M417
The all-new gun, M417 will be included in the upcoming PUBG Mobile 2.1 update. This gun, unlike the M416, will have a slow fire rate and will be largely used on a single tap. There is a probability that this will have more damage than the M416. However, as seen previously on Beryl M762 as well as the AKM, if a gun has more damage, it is very certain that it will have more recoil.
New AMR Gun
As per the sources, this upcoming AMR gun will be the deadliest sniper in the history of PUBG Mobile. It will be an upgraded version of the powerful AWM sniper and will take out an enemy, even on a body shot.
It will use the same sniper concept, and with AMR+8x scope, you will be able to knock out anyone rendering no matter how far away the enemy is. There will only be 10 bullets, 5 of which will be loaded into the gun and the other 5 will be in your backpack. Gamers are disappointed with this decision of PUBG Mobile by not including at least 25 bullets.
M79 Smoke Launcher
A new Smoke Launcher is expected in the PUBG Mobile 2.1. It will act as a pistol and hence a pistol slot will be used for it. You can load up to 4 smokes in one go, in the magazine and fire one after another. The range of the smoke will be a little more and more speedy too.
Biggest of All: The New Erangle 3.0 Map in PUBG Mobile 2.1
Erangel 3.0 is expected to be included in the upcoming PUBG Mobile 2.1 update. There are rumours that it will have three to four islands, unlike the Old Erangel which had only two. This image is not official, although it is claimed that it represents the next version of Erangel.
In the upcoming PUBG Mobile update, a Holiday Map will finally be added. Although it was not included in the previous version, however, the leaks are available online for a while now. So, there is a strong probability that it will be included in the upcoming release of PUBG Mobile 2.1.
