BGMI (Battlegrounds Mobile India’s) first and most-anticipated update is here! – After many rumours and anticipations, BGMI 1.5.0 Update is set to officially rolled out today i.e. July 13 at 7.30 pm IST. The new season, which is Season 20, will begin on July 14.
The update brings a variety of new features to the game, some of which include throwable healing consumables, glass windows, a new drop weapon called MG3, and Ace Master Ranking. Let’s take a look at the details of the latest BGMI July patch.
How to Install the BGMI 1.5.0 Update
To install the update, you need to download the latest version of Battlegrounds Mobile India from the Playstore. The procedure is quite simple. After updating the game, the users may again have to wait for some time while loading the game, to allow some more resources to be downloaded. Additionally, the map downloads will also be reset and players will have to manually download some of the maps and resources for a better gaming experience.
New Features of BGMI 1.5.0 Update
Throwable Healing Consumables
The ability to throw healing consumables is another significant change in the update. It will allow players to toss healing consumables such as health packs, bandages, and other supplies to teammates nearby. Players should be aware that if the healing consumables are thrown incorrectly, they may bounce away.
One of the most exciting features of the update is the launch of two new guns namely – MG3 (LMG) and ASM – Abakan (AR). The MG3 is an alternative placed instead of the previous M249 machine gun (which is now removed from the airdrop and found normally). Contrary to M249, the MG3 uses 7.62mm ammo. It works on two alternative fire rates which are 660 or 990 rounds per minute and supports up to 6x scope.
On the other hand, the ASM – Abakan would be a normal gun using 5.56mm ammo with Full-Auto, Burst, and Single-Shot modes.
Another small but quirky update includes the introduction of glass windows in Erangel and Miramar maps. These windows can be broken by simply jumping through them, with bullets, or even with melee weapons. However, keep in mind that they make a noise when broken alerting enemies nearby.
New Tier System
Another interesting update is the division of the Ace tier into three new sub-tiers – Ace, Ace master, and Ace Dominator – with respective new badges. Moreover, from the next season, there will be three seasons bound to form a cycle, such as C1S1, C1S2, and C1S3. These seasons will together form a cycle.
Players may now customize the sensitivity level of each gun, copy and edit gun sensitivity, and save their chosen settings to the cloud. For lower-spec budget cellphones, a new graphics option that is less than smooth has also been provided.
In addition, for some new devices, Krafton has included a new 90 FPS option to the frame rate settings. Players may now change gyroscope sensitivity, tilt camera control sensitivity while firing, and reverse the gyroscope’s up and down effect in the game.
The game now features a Do not pick up discarded objects option, which prevents the game from automatically picking up discarded scopes and other items.
Finally, there is an Advance Pick-Up option, which allows players to select and save their favourite weapon attachments. When the player selects the specified attachment, it replaces whatever attachment is presently in use.
Mission Ignition Mode
A new mode called Mission Ignition has also been added to the Erangel map. The Transit Centre, Georgopol, Tech Centre, and other Erangel locations are included in this theme mode. It also includes the Riot Shield, which prevents shots from passing through.
Air conveyors, the ASM Abakan cannon, anti-gravity motorcycles, riot shields, HyperLines, and autonomous semi-trucks hauling supplies will all be part of the new mode.
When will BGMI be Available on iOS?
While Android users have already formed their squads and are working to improve their ranks, iOS users are still waiting for Battlegrounds Mobile India to arrive on their devices. It was rumoured during the Early Access period that the game would be released on iOS with the final edition. That was not the case, though
Kronten Gaming mentioned in a recent webcast that the game could be released for iOS within a week. The game might be released in a few days, as the stream went live on July 11th.
