BGMI 2.6 Update: Release Date and Expected Features
Krafton has consistently delivered updates to provide a refreshing experience for its vast player base in Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI). It is anticipated that the much-awaited BGMI 2.6 update will be unveiled sometime between 13th to 20th July. However, please note that this is an estimated date, and players can download the patch through their respective virtual stores whenever it becomes available.
BGMI 2.6 Update: Expected Release Date and Update Patterns
This assumption is based on Krafton’s previous trend of releasing updates in Battlegrounds Mobile India a few days after a similar update in PUBG Mobile, despite the two games being separate IPs.
Considering the announcement of the PUBG Mobile 2.7 update is on 13th July, it seems plausible that Krafton may also release the BGMI 2.6 update on the mentioned date.
It is crucial to highlight that nothing is officially confirmed about the BGMI 2.6 update as Krafton has not made an official announcement yet. Therefore, the aforementioned release date is purely speculative, based on previous patterns.
What are the Expected Updates in BGMI 2.6?
New Full-Auto Mod attachment: First and foremost, M1614 and MK47, both the semi-automatic assault rifles will receive a full-auto upgrade. Players can now find this ‘Full-Auto Mod attachment’ as ground loot and equip this to use the guns in full auto. Do note that even in auto mode, the fire rate of these guns will remain significantly less than their counterparts like the M416.
Companion Spectating System: Now an eliminated teammate can transform into a companion by taking up the avatar of a pet and get a view of the match from the companion’s POV. The companion will be visible to teammates only, and the companion himself will not be able to see or hear any enemies.
Tactical Attachment Applicable Mode Updates: Players can now attach a gun shield on firearms like M249 that will protect them from incoming damage at the cost of reduced area of view.
Full movement speed on SMGs: This is a huge update for close combat lovers as you can now fire and sprint at the same time using SMGs. There will be absolutely no movement penalties for these guns, making it an absolute favorite in crosshair duels.
Melee Weapon Revision: All melee weapons are grouped under the new Machete. Weapon finishes can now be added to Machetes. Animation is adjusted accordingly.
Throwables Improvements: Grenades and all the other throwables now come with improved animation, reduced recoil, and other basic updates.
Convertible Sports Car Mechanic: The Open and Closed Top Mirado is now a single vehicle with a convertible roof. The same adjustment has been made to UAZ.
Vehicle Improvements: After Miramar, Monster Truck is now added to Erangel along with Open Mirado. The UAZ now replaces pickups in Sanhok and Miramar.
