According to BGMI, in the BGMI 2.8 Update, Erangel, Miramar, and Livik will witness an onslaught of infected Mutants until November 26th. The Aerolith Lab and its surrounding areas serve as the hotspot during the event, teeming with countless ‘mutants’ to kill, alongside an occasional Berserker and Ripper variants, which will prove more challenging.
In the Aerolith Lab and Outpost on these maps, your goal is to stop the Aerolith from absorbing too many Mutants. If it absorbs a lot of Mutants, it will summon the Rage Berserker, making things more challenging. If you defeat this boss, you’ll get a special crate as a reward.
The latest update also introduces Mutation Gauntlets, which can be equipped to drastically enhance gameplay. Players can hop aboard the Maglev Hoverboard, which can be acquired from the Lab, to traverse both land and sea efficiently.
“There will also be a surprise coming in October to celebrate Halloween for those who like to party,” BGMI said. Additionally, Cycle 5 Season 14 is updated with new content, rewards, and cosmetics to unlock and enjoy.
