Battlegrounds Mobile India has received the 1.7 update. The update brings with it a number of gameplay changes and events. The update should be available to all players by now.
Krafton is finally rolling out the 1.7 update to Battlegrounds Mobile India. As one might expect, the update brings with it a host of new features and additions. Most notable is the partnerships with the League of Legends animated series and Liverpool FC. It will also bring a couple of new gameplay changes and weapon balancing.
One notable new addition is the introduction of a piggyback feature in the game’s Classic mode. Now, players can carry any downed teammate or enemy. It should be noted that when carrying a player, the player's movement speed will be reduced and they won’t be able to use any items or board vehicles. Further, the downed player’s HP will continue to decrease when carried.
Another new feature is the addition of a grenade indicator that will let players judge the location of a grenade in their vicinity, allowing them to take appropriate action. Further, the updated weapon balance will affect SLR, SKS, mini14, VSS, and DP28 weapons.
Battlegrounds Mobile India gets a new “Mirror World Theme”. As part of this, a Mirror Island will now appear in the sky after some time. Players will be able to enter this island by using the Wind Wall on the ground. When they enter the mode, the player’s character will transform into one of four legends from the League of Legends Arcane animated series. This includes Jinx, Vi, Jayce and Caitlyn. Players can then kill a monster on Mirror Island with the character’s weapons and skills.
Players will also get Hexcrystals as a reward when they kill a monster. These can then be exchanged for a battle item. Once the character is dead or the playtime on the Mirror Island is done, players will return to the normal map.
There is also another crossover with Liverpool FC. Players can partake in a number of events featuring the football team. This includes Event sections such as You’ll Never Walk Alone that offer rewards like the Liverpool FC parachute, the Liverpool FC backpack and the Liverpool FC jersey.
Another event is called The Recall. Players play with 8 friends and get Recall tokens, which can be exchanged for rewards such as the SCAR-L Malachite permanent item.
