PUBG MOBILE launched a new Traverse-Insectoid game mode by adding an all-new battle royale experience to the game. With unlimited homing missiles, Insectoid players will battle each other in fast-paced, with explosives and in microscopic fights while trying to avoid the dangerous pans of full-sized players. Traverse – Insectoid is a limited-time mode and will be available in PUBG Mobile until July 5.
The Traverse-Insectoid mode allows players to use the shrinking technology in order to transform down to the size of an insect. By selecting Erangel’s new themed mode, players will find five strange labs to explore. Each one will hold a mysterious Quantum Transformation Device. Players who interact with this device will be transformed into a miniature insect-sized player. In this state, players can’t use any equipment in their backpack, but instead will be armed with a homing missile launcher with unlimited ammunition! They will also be able to fly around the lab, but watch out, players that stray too far from the labs will be transformed back to full size. Insectoid players can’t be harmed with normal weapons, however they can be knocked out of the air with pan attacks.
In order to travel around the map while an Insectoid, players can gather Energy Light Points which will allow them to use wormholes. Each light grants five Light Points – once a player gathers 40 Light Points they can activate a Wormhole Device and teleport to one of the other four labs. Light Points can only be earned in Insectoid form; normal sized players can use the Energy Store to exchange their Light Points for Combat Supplies. Remember, the ultimate objective of the Traverse-Insectoid mode is the same as a regular match; make sure you are the last player standing!
“Through the Traverse-Insectoid mode we wanted to create a different way of enjoying the game with a brand new gameplay experience for worldwide fans of PUBG MOBILE,” said Jenny Zhuang, PUBG MOBILE Marketing Manager SEA. “In this mode, players can shrink down and explore the battlegrounds like never before, offering a unique microcosm experience and exciting way to play. The new mode also drives players to rework their strategy to win the match either in insect-sized or full-sized.”
Apart from the Traverse-Insectoid game mode, PUBG MOBILE also recently launched a Royale Pass Season 19 with the same theme, offering an exclusive insect-themed outfit which has entered its 4th week mission. Players are expected to be able to complete their missions in order to raise the rank of Royale Pass to the maximum level.
