Last month, PUBG Mobile got a new game mode designed to challenge you in more ways than just keeping you safe from other players. The Arctic Mode (or Cold Front Survival Mode) in PUBG Mobile brings the wrath of Vikendi’s cold blizzards to the game, so you must manage resources much better with your squad. If you’re having trouble winning in this mode, here are some tips and tricks that can make it easier to go through Vikendi in the new survival mode.
Stock up on survival needs
In a normal PUBG Mobile game, you can collect your favorite weapons, lots of ammo and medical supplies and complete the game. However, in Arctic Mode, you also have to beat the harsh winter blizzards.
Make sure to gather enough branches. These spawn in the same way as normal loot, but in a much larger quantity, so pick it up when you see it.
Also, at least one player in your squad should bring a pair of heaters. These don’t last long, but they create a warmth ring where all of your squad members will be safe from the snowstorm, even out in the open.
Hot packs are amazing if you like to get more murders (more on that in the next point), so stock up on these too.
Rushed enemies when trying to stay alive
It doesn’t sound like decent human advice, but in PUBG, this is totally fair. Look, when the snowstorm comes, you (and all the other squads) will light fires inside the buildings to keep warm. The thing is, These fires are visible on the minimap.
Discover nearby locations where enemies have burning fires, apply lots of hot packs and run in the snowstorm to attack your enemies as they gather around the fire.
Be careful though, their hot packs only keep you safe for a limited time. You can see the remaining time on the right side of the health bar on your HUD.
Also, be on the lookout for possible ambushes from other squads trying to lure him in, only to kill him.
Use drones to scan the area, and sometimes just for the fun of it.
Look, drones are fun, they’re amazing, and now they’re on PUBG Mobile. You can find drones inside houses, and these are best used when you’re inside during a snowstorm. You can fly the drone to explore locations and even mark points of interest on the map.
Drones too warn you if they hear a vehicle or gunshots near.
Also, the latter is not really a tip, but my squad and I had a lot of fun flying drones and pestering people sitting inside houses trying to stay warm. It’s fun.Also, you can get some nice bird’s eye screenshots; just say.
Keep track of the snowstorm
In Cold Front Survival, the snowstorm hits twice in one game. You can see the remaining time for the snowstorm to arrive, and for the snowstorm to pass just below the minimap. Be sure to enter the area before the snowstorm arrives. Otherwise, you will suffer damage to the area and damage due to hypothermia induced by the snowstorm.
Normally, I get into the zone towards the end of the zone movement time, but in Cold Front Survival that can catch you in horrible situations. It is always better to enter the area first and then hunt down your enemies with hot packs and warmers.
Ski around the map
Fun little addition to Cold Front Survival: skiing. Skiing is a great way to get around the map faster than running. It also doesn’t make as much noise as a vehicle, so it’s good for sneaking up on people.
You will see the option “Ski” appear on the screen when you are on snow. Just touch it and start skiing. Try doing it when you go downhill because this is where skiing really shines.
Pro-tip: There is an error in the game that sometimes does not allow you to leave the ski. If this happens, ski to a nearby road and continue skiing on the road. The ski will automatically disconnect in a few seconds.
Get that chicken dinner and some insane deaths
Honestly, Cold Front Survival is one of the funniest modes added to PUBG Mobile. I like it even more than I did when Payload first came out. Cold Front Survival allows many types of game. You can get defensive and stay alive without fighting hard, or you can get aggressive and hunt down enemies in the snowstorm when they least expect it. Just make sure you don’t die in the snowstorm. Believe me, that feels worse than dying from the playground.
