Krafton Set to Roll Out May Update for New State Mobile

Bounty Royale Remake

The Bounty Royale which was introduced to the game earlier in August 2022 has been renewed and will take place in Akinta. The game only contains survivors without AI, and each match will have a maximum of 32 Survivors. You can select the weapons and equipment you wish to employ before the game begins.

Data-generating devices will be installed. The entire quantity of data collected by each squad’s members will be the squad’s score. When a survivor dies in-game, some of the data is dropped next to the loot box, which can be picked up by allies and opponents. After a specific amount of time, dead survivors will be redeployed.

Data receivers may be obtained from boxes scattered over the map from which you can choose a data receiver.  While you are carrying the receiver, data will be continually gathered and all the survivors will be notified of the location of the data receiver  If another team takes over the data station before the phase ends, you will also lose the data.  That means you must keep attackers away from the data station until the end of each phase. 

The Bounty Royale season will run concurrently with the Battle Royale season.  Based on the Bounty Royale tier score, prestige coins that may be used in the Prestige Shop will be awarded at the end of the season. Bounty Royale will only be available for 8 hours each day

New Weapon – MG5

In the previous version, if 90 FPS of ‘Frame Rate’ was selected in high-performance devices, only the ‘Lite’ option for ‘Graphic Quality’ was accessible.

However, other visual variations are now available in the same selection. Excessive settings may result in frame drops, warmth, quick battery consumption, and major hardware problems.

The official written patch notes will include more details about the new changes and content which will be published on the official website soon.
