PUBG Mobile update 0.15.5 is one of the game's biggest patches to date in terms of its raw content. The MP5K signals a huge change in the Vikendi meta by removing the Vector, offering players a competent SMG with a fast fire rate. The gun has been well-received since its debut in other versions of PUBG over the last few months, so it's nice to see it finally make its way to the small screen. Elsewhere in the patch the addition of a new TDM map should be exciting to all, and the Season 10 Royale Pass offers cool progression opportunities for those who engage with it.

More so than ever, though, PUBG Mobile update 0.15.5 serves to show just how different the game's handheld iteration has become from its PC and console counterparts. While there are base similarities in maps and weapon roster, a separate TDM mode, upcoming Companion system and new in-game Characters foreshadow a slightly changed concept from what fans originally envisioned. These new features likely present more monetization opportunities by enticing players with in-game advantages, but they might also be better suited for short-burst play as well. With update 0.15.5 and beyond, PUBG Mobile continues to grow into a strong and unique battle royale.

PUBG Mobile is available now on Android and iOS.
