Krafton has pushed a new update in Battlegrounds Mobile India which brings in a lot of changes to the game. The developers have introduced a new mode in three maps and made some other major changes to the UI as well. Here are the official patch notes.
BGMI 1.6 Update Patch Notes
1. Flora Menace Mode
The Rejuvenation Barrier
Alien plants called ‘Yarilo’ will occupy some cities and build a special barrier. Your health will slowly regenerate in the Rejuvenation Barrier when you are not engaging the opponents.
The Dynahex Supply Shop
A special system for the fight against alien forces is coming! Gather ‘Nacores’ on the field and press the button below the mini-map on the right to enter the ‘Dynahex Supply Shop’ where you can purchase diverse items for the battle. You can order advanced items like Groza, Spetsnaz Helmet, and Backpack (Lv.3), and the ordered items will be delivered to your position via supply capsule.
The Cell Matrix
There is a Cell Matrix airship in the sky of Erangel. But the Cell Matrix, which used to be the hope of escaping, is now out of control because of intruders.
You must retrieve the Cell Matrix through battle. Cell Matrix appears only in Erangel, and you can enter Cell Matrix through bee-hive-shaped cells spreading across the map.
You can enter the cell only for a certain period when it’s activated. Be careful, limited respawn chances are given in the Cell Matrix, and you will have to fight against the infected Cell Matrix Robots and enemies. To mix things up, you must battle with weapons which changes in after a certain period. If your respawn chances expire, you will be shifted to the ground. You can find many ‘Nacores’ in the Cell Matrix and you can also get ‘Nacores’ by defeating the Cell Matrix Robots!
The Cell Matrix Robot
If you go to the location marked as ‘Cell Matrix Robot’ on your mini-map, various robots including those with overwhelming firepower will come out from capsules to attack you. Which is not fun, but defeating them is. Defeating them will give you items, so take it as a challenge and loot items fast!
Wait, there’s some more!
Features from previous Mission Ignition mode, including Riot Shield, Tactical Marking Device, Air Conveyor, ASM Abakan, and Automatic Drop also appears in the new Flora Menace Mode, so make good use of them in your battle!
2. Player VS AI Mode
Livik is under the AI invasion! Team up with your friends and defeat the AIs!
You may enter Mode: VS AI at the mode selecting screen by selecting the difficulty, and you can play as a squad as well! Since everyone other than your team is AI, you can win the game by defeating them.
