PUBG Flare Gun Event Mode Public Beta Is Now Live For Everyone

With PUBG Mobile 0.8.0 update, the new Flare Gun has been introduced on the game for smartphones gamers. Until now, there wasn’t any Flare Gun available on the PUBG PC version of the game. But, from now, all PUBG PC players will be able to get Flare Gun on PUBG PC. Yes, PUBG corp. has announced new Flare Gun Event Mode.

Well, it isn’t sure that they will Flare Gun in PUBG PC forever. For now, the PUBG team has been gathering feedback on the Flare Gun over the course of a few events and they are finally ready to give it a proper test in a real environment to see if it fits within the normal PUBG atmosphere and make sure everything works properly. As this is a beta test, the event will run for 10 days instead of the normal weekend duration.

This event mode is normal like other events in the squad, but you will get a chance get Flare Gun to spawn alongside normal loot. The main goal here is to basically beta test the Flare Gun as normal PUBG loot with the intention to add it as a rare drop to normal games once the test concludes. So, once you got your hands with the new Flare Gun in PUBG PC version, please do not forget to share your experience in comments.
