The Payload game mode was initially released in PUBG Mobile last October. It’s similar to the classic battle royale game mode but features more aggressive weapons, such as grenade launchers and mini-guns.

It’s also available on PUBG Mobile Lite starting today and features the M3E1-A and MGL Grenade Launcher weapons, as well as the BRDM-2 and AHG vehicles.

The Falcon companion, essentially useful for cosmetic purposes, will join PUBG Mobile Lite with the 0.17.0 update after its introduction to PUBG Mobile last November.

Lastly, the game’s Personal Space will be updated. New display functions for outfits will be added, as well as a new synergy.

The players who download the 0.17.0 update can redeem two outfit coupon scraps. Players who purchase the Winner Pass will also be rewarded with more items.
