Among the additions is a new AR weapon with a laser sight attachment called the Mk47 Mutant. It offers multiple firing modes as well as a 20-bullet clip. You can extend the clip size to 30 by adding a larger magazine. The old attachments, such as grips, muzzles, sights and scopes, are also compatible with the new Mk47 Mutant.
Publisher Tencent says that the new laser sight offers better recoil control to make taking out distant enemies without a scope easier. Also coming to the PUBG is season five of the Royal Pass. The new season will add new premium outfits, emotes, accessories and other rewards. The Royal Pass Season 5 also begins tomorrow at 02:00 UTC.
