PUBG Mobile patch 1.1 kicks in on November 10, finally confirming the end of the larger patch numbers that plagued the game before the big 1.0 update. As an odd-numbered patch, there’s not a massive amount of new features in this one, but between new modes and a new way to use melee weapons, there’s enough to shake up the gameplay loop for a good little while. Read on for the full PUBG Mobile 1.1 patch notes to learn exactly how you’ll be knocked clean out of your next few matches.
Before we get into the patch notes, though, it’s important to know how to update. If you and your friends aren’t on the same version, you won’t be able to play together. Given this patch features a bunch of new co-op modes, a version mismatch will certainly ruin the fun. Here’s how to download the update.
How to Download PUBG Mobile 1.1
Once the game update goes live in the early hours of November 10, your game should update itself as you fire it up. Of course, that means you’ll need to close and reopen your game if you’re playing when the update kicks in.
If that doesn’t drop you into version 1.1, heading into your device’s app store of choice should do the trick. Check for updates through there and the download should begin. If you’re using an outside APK, look around your usual repositories for the new client.
PUBG Mobile 1.1 Patch Notes
New Mode – Metro Royale
This is the focus of the new Metro: Exodus x PUBG Mobile crossover teased a few months back. A modified Erangel plays host to bandit camps, NPCs, and monsters featured in the franchise. It’s a rouge-like of sorts similar to Hades in that progress made in one match can be carried over into the next to increase your chances of survival.
- Takes place on a modified Erangel with ruins, trenches, bandit camps, and other new locations.
- Uses unique loadouts between matches. Items can be stored for safekeeping, whereas anything brought into the match will be lost on death.
- Monsters and Bandits drop unique rewards on death, which can then be exchanged outside of the mode to build custom loadouts through a “Black Market”
- Unique equipment includes grenade launcher weapon attachments, thermal sights, night vision goggles, heavy armor, and the Metro-series Tikhar air rifle.
- Give NPCs gifts to increase Favorability, earning vital supplies in the process
Classic Mode Updates
Erangel is set to enjoy two new variations through to the end of the year; the first to celebrate Metro mode, and the other to celebrate the chilly winter up ahead.
- Metro Theme
- Two of four potential metro lines will run across the map and can be used to get around quickly. Metro-inspired monsters and the Radiation Zone feature on the map, while the Aurora steam train will appear on Spawn Island as a decorative piece.
- Winter Festival
- Sheets of ice cover the sea around Erangel which can be followed to find a randomly appearing Winter Castle Paradise. Start snowball fights, ride snowboards, and head to the Winter Festival hut near Georgopol to join in the festivities.
- Payload 2.0
- Availability after Nov. 10 = Fri-Sun
Season 16 – Metro Royale

Throw Melee Weapons
Any melee weapon can now be thrown to deal damage within 40 meters. These can be picked back up and used infinitely. Similar to a Pan, headshots without a helmet will instantly KO.
This one-time use item can be spread along the ground to pucture the tire of the first vehicle that passes over it. It cannot be retrieved once placed.
