1. iOS background download and update feature has been added. While downloading a new patch, iOS players can now send the application to the background like Android users. (iOS shop will not be updated to reflect this).

2. New Weapon: PP-19.

  • The game's fifth submachine gun, using 9mm ammunition, drops on the Erangel and Vikendi map. It has an oversized magazine of 53 rounds, but it does not support magazine upgrades, so the capacity cannot be increased through attachments.
  • The weapon can be equipped with scopes and muzzle attachments and can be equipped with all scopes from the red dot sight and the holographic sight to the 6x scope, as well as all muzzle accessories available far submachine guns.
  • The PP-19 has single shot damage of 35 and a rate of fire similar to the UMP.
  • Its default magazine size gives the advantage of a fully kitted weapon during early game; however, these advantages come at the cost of a slightly weaker performance later in the match.

3. TPP added to team deathmatch room mode.

4. New rating protection cards, including rating protection card (duration) and rating protection card (uses), will take effect when ratings change. No rating will be deducted while the card is active. Only applies to Crown tier and below.

5. The high frame rate option has been added to HDR made for some high-end device. Enable it for even better graphics at the cost of battery life. It can be configured in

6. PMCO themed events are coming in late July. After completing the missions, players can listen to the new PMCO song by Alan Walker, and get the PMCO theme for their main menu.

3. Corrected the bug where players were erroneously ranked with incorrect ratings and tiers during the season change.

4. Corrected the bug where players could not move the avatars of their teammates in team deathmatch.

  • At the beginning of each season, players will learn more detailed changes from the previous season.
  • The ranking system's algorithm has been tuned to slightly increase the weight of kill points, so kills now have a bigger impact on tier.
  • Tier transfer rules have been revised. Starting from season 8, tiers below Gold are transferred as-is to the next season.

As for the content of PUBG Mobile update 0.13.5, its biggest features include the PP-19 SMG and Season 8 changes that will be taking effect over the coming days. Starting with the gun, the PP-19 looks to be a strong addition to the game even if PUBG Mobile's existing SMG meta is fairly strong in its current state. The fact that the PP-19 spawns on two very popular maps also gives it time to evolve as well. The weapon's oversized magazine is definitely worth keeping an eye on for upcoming balance changes, but that will likely depend on how fans utilize this new addition over the next few weeks.

There are some pretty substantial changes heading into Season 8 as well. In short, the new system facilitates more meaningful progression across the board. Making key rewards easier to obtain gives casual players more reason to grind while still leaving the smaller cosmetic accoutrements for dedicated elites. Also, because kill counts now carry greater weight than before, those less-skilled players will be further incentivized to approach tactical situations with a bit more firepower. Overall, PUBG Mobile update 0.13.5 introduces some smart tweaks for the next Royale Pass.

PUBG Mobile is available now on Android and iOS.
