BGMI 1.5 Updates: Ignition

The MG3 will replace the M249 in the Airdrop roster. It uses 7.62 ammo and has a magazine of 75 bullets. MG3 has a massive fire rate - in fact, you can switch between two modes. The 660 RPM is the normal firing rate... and the 990 RPM is the boosted one, which can result in 50% more damage. The MG3 can be fitted with scopes up to 6x - no other attachments can be used.

Throwable Healing Consumables

There have been rumors about a "healing grenade" but looks like that is not the case here. Consumable healing items like medkits or painkillers are now throwables. You can toss heals to your teammates at any time by equipping them on the grenade slot.

Glass Windows

Some buildings in Erangel and Miramar now have Glass windows. Players need to smash them to get pass.

2 - Ranking System Changes

Unique Firearms and Attachments

  • New gun ASM Abakan: A futuristic AR that uses 5.56mm rounds and has three different firing modes (full-auto, two-shot burst, and single-shot). The special part about the Abakan is that its first two shots are extremely accurate - which makes its burst mode perfect for sniping. Overall, you can treat this weapon like the FAMAS.
  • Ergonomic Grip: Grip attachment that improves the handling of firearms, lowers vertical/horizontal recoil, and accelerates recoil recovery.
  • Muzzle Brake: This muzzle attachment can reduce bullet scattering and lower recoil.
  • Drum Magazine: Rifle's magazine attachment that greatly increases magazine capacity at the cost of slightly longer reloading time.

Unique New Vehicles

  • Anti-gravity Motorcycle: A two-seat hoverbike that can travel around the map... without having to worry about terrains.
