PUBG MOBILE’s new Payload mode takes the classic PUBG-style combat to the skies. There is room to improve with the mode, however, for even higher expertise in gameplay.
- On October 16, the PUBG MOBILE Payload mode will launch on stable servers.
- In the classic PUBG-style gameplay, the Payload mode includes helicopters and anti-air weapons.
- The payload mode is part of the special gameplay modes in EvoGround.
As news about PUBG MOBILE’s payload mode came out a few weeks ago, I scoffed at it, thinking the developers are now taking too far away from the authentic PUBG experience, Just like the zombie mode. I seem to have been wrong. Fully right.
Because the payload mode in PUBG MOBILE is anything but boring. Now, before you ask how I got access to the mode even though the release is scheduled for October 16, let me tell you I had access to the upcoming 0.15.0 beta version. In the latest payload mode, I spent a considerable amount of time on the hallowed grounds of Erangel. And while offering a definite verdict is too early, here’s how it looks at first sight.
But what is the mode for payload?
Simply put, under the EvoGround tab, it’s a new gameplay mode that enables players to combat each other in the classic ‘ last-man-standing’ format. Nevertheless, the designers have thrown helicopters and anti-air guns into the mix to make the gameplay interesting. And it seems from the start that the concept creators of PUBG MOBILE have achieved what they wanted.
What’s going to bring payload mode to the table?
The helicopter must be the largest one (literally). As vehicles for players to use and drive across the map, the game throws helicopters around the world. To you can use it as a great weapon to kill your enemies, depending on your intelligence.
But if you or your crew are frustrated enough to miss the closest chopper, don’t lose heart as the game gives you access to antiair weapons. What arms are you wondering about? Launchers of missiles, launchers of grenades and new ammunition-what else do you need?
And to spice up the gameplay even further, in a few spots of the world, there are large weapons crates called Super Weapon Box. And as you must have guessed, the box contains rare weapons that you are using to shoot down your enemies and helicopters.
Also, the payload mode borrows from Call of Duty Mobile one major feature-reviving dead games. Call of Duty Mobile provided team members with the ability to collect tags from defeated team members and enter the nearest communication tower to revive them in the game. The payload mode also offers the same, making playing with your team or mates more meaningful.

As I said, in the beta version, I only tried the Payload mode, which is riddled with bugs and a weird watermark design across the gui. The version you will get on October 16 will, therefore, be better and more polished. That said, I was shown enough by the beta to think about here.

The Payload mode begins at the end, equivalent to any game of Classic mode. There are a total of 60 players without weapons jumping into Erangel. The first few moments are pretty simple-you leap off the aircraft, dive down to your chosen location, pick up weapons, and then get ready to fight. This time alone, I was invited to see a helicopter over a helipad surrounded by anti-air Guns. Weapons. And I understood what the Payload mode is all about at this spot.
Payload mode is about giving players and crews equal opportunities. If you or your team first gain access to the aircraft, your enemies will have the chance from that very location to blow you out of the air. Though, when you climb, your crew will shoot them down. This is where players need to go through a lot of action just to take control of the match.
From the ground, to bring down the helicopters, you have access to grenade launchers and rocket launchers. And the best part is that you can see all your enemies and knock them down quickly if you get the heat-seeking missile launcher. While the missiles lock in on the target aircraft, however, the enemy can sweep and fly forward to save itself.
And as for the helicopter, from any other video game I’ve ever played, it feels as easy to fly as any other chopper. You get two ascending and descending buttons and use the arrow keys to maneuver ita around the globe. The helicopter handles like a helicopter, i.e. it glides up smoothly and swerves in any direction naturally like a real-world helicopter. You can’t go much higher than you felt sad at first, but it gives enemies on the ground a good chance to engage in a fight. Unfortunately, when driving, the pilot is unable to use guns. And this is when I saw an enemy, I had to land and shoot him down (sadly, when I got out of the chopper, he shot me down).
In beta mode, I couldn’t try the revival feature as I didn’t have a crew to play with, but Erangel got communication towers spread evenly across the world.
