Avid players of PUBG Mobile, rejoice! There's a new update out alongside the release of the Royale Pass Season 8. This update, titled update 0.13.5, includes a new gun, the PP-19 Submachine Gun. It's fully automatic, with 53-round capacity for 9mm-type ammunition.

Update 0.13.5 also includes a new game mode for players to enjoy. Third Person Perspective (or TPP) Mode comes to Team Deathmatch, so players can swap up their field of view and get a better idea of what's happening around them. There's also several system upgrades to things such as Title Effects or Crate Names that should increase the average quality-of-life experience when playing.

The best accessories for mobile gaming

GameSir F1 Grip ($13 at Amazon)

PUBG Mobile doesn't support Bluetooth controllers, so this phone grip is the next best thing. It gives you a more comfortable hold on your phone for extended gaming sessions.

Ventev Powercell 6010+ Portable USB-C Charger ($37 at Amazon)

I always recommend this battery pack from Ventev because it's so compact and convenient. You get a built-in USB-C cord, built-in AC prong for charging the unit, and 6000mAh battery capacity.

Google Play Gift Card (From $25 at Amazon)

Whether you're looking to buy into the premium Royal Pass, need some credit to buy an ID Change card, or want to drop some dough on some cosmetics, buying a Google Play Gift Card is a good way to keep your PUBG Mobile spending in check.
