PUBG Mobile Payload Mode x War Mode details
To understand the new Payload Mode x War Mode mode, let’s talk about the Payload Mode and the War Mode separately. War mode is similar to deathmatch where the player respawns in the match at a particular time interval. Towards the end of the match, the blue zone locks in and players are no longer able to respawn. This gives the mode a traditional Battle Royale ending. Payload mode allows players to use an attack helicopter to fight rivals on the ground. At the same time, players on the ground will have access to rocket or grenade launchers to fight the enemies.
