The latest BGMI 1.5 update also brings a new Mission Ignition mode that adds a futuristic touch to the game. The new mode offers an Automatic Drop feature that allows players to drop automatically to the area pinned in the map. The mode also redefines six new areas of Erangel including Transit Center (Pochinki), Port of Georgopol (Georgopol), Tech Center (School), Security Center (Military Base), Logistics Agency (Yasnaya Polyana), and Energy Center (Mylta Power).

The mode also brings new vehicles including HyperLines, which is a futuristic train; G-38 Gravity Free Motorcycle that hovers above the ground; and more. Furthermore, the mode also brings a new weapon known as ASM Abakan, which fires 5.56mm ammo and has a capacity of 30 bullets. Also, Scopes, Canted Sights, various gun attachments & magazines can be used as attachments.

The mode also brings a tactical marking device that allows players to automatically check the direction of teammate’s firing, location of the enemy, and more. It also brings Riot Shield, which cannot be penetrated by bullets. The mode also brings the TESLA super factory that produces the Tesla Model Y autonomous car. The car automatically reaches the road mark set by the user. Apart from this, you get an autonomous driving vehicle, which one can attack and damage to get combat supplies.

Challenge Point System

The game also brings a new Challenge Point System that maintains existing game score plus/minus rules while applying bonus scores based on user actions in-game. The Challenge points can be earned if a game is played without any malicious acts such as exiting the game mid-way, neglect, or team finish.

New Ranking

Krafton has also updated the new Season ranking for BGMI. The developers have introduced a new ranking called Ace Master that sits between Ace and Conqueror. The season ranking and royal pass details have also changed this season. You can click here to know more about the same.

Clan PK Mode

The update also brings Clank PK mode, under which clans with similar activity points can compete with each other for up to 14 days. Clan members can accumulate PK points by completing clan PK missions and earn daily base rewards too. At the end of the event, the total number of base compensations earned by both Clan is aggregated and the clan with more wins is the victor.
