Tencent Games recently released the new beta update. Its the PUBG Mobile 0.16.0 Beta version which is now available to play. PUBG mobile has a large player base and the developers ensure new features and changes to keep the players engaged and excited. The new version is bringing quite a lot of features like snow in Erangel, death race game mode, TPP to FPP switch etc. So let us see what’s new in PUBG mobile 0.16.0 beta.
1. TPP-FPP Switch
A large number of players have been waiting for this update. Now you can easily switch from the Third person viewer mode to First-person viewer mode while in-game according to your choice. For being able to switch your view, you need to enable the FPP Swap option which will be available on the basic settings screen as shown in the screenshot above.
This allows a player to switch from TPP to FPP view in-game just by a click of a button.
2. Healing/Boost Movement
Another update includes movement while healing in the game. Till now, when a player had to heal, he needed to stop. However, in the new update 0.16.0 Beta, the game has added a feature where the player can heal while moving.
But there is a catch. The movement speed of the player is not similar to the normal speed. The movement speed reduces when you are healing. However, this is a major change which will be helpful to the players in-game in tough situations as they can now heal while moving.
3. Copy your Classic HUD to Team Death Match
Previously, players had to set up their HUD differently for Team Death Match and Classic mode gameplay in the game. The game has now added a feature where you can copy your classic HUD to the Team death Match HUD as and when you want. This will reduce the time you need in setting up the HUD 2 times.
