The mobile port of PLAYERUNKNOWN’s BattleGrounds title has been a roaring success across the globe since launching in March 2018.

The battle royale game operates in an almost identical fashion to its PC and Xbox counterparts when played on a high end smartphone.

There is of course a couple of noticable differences due to the controls, with improved auto-aim and a higher tendency to shoot from the hip rather than scoping in.

For the two months since release the game has received a number of updates, but arguably the biggest has now dropped on May 15th, signalling the start of Season Two.

Update 0.5.0 has added a new map, with the desert themed Miramar now available to play for mobile users.

The map has already been thoroughly used on PC and Xbox, but this marks the first opportunity for those using handheld devices to get stuck into the dusty western themed environment.

The PUBG Mobile Twitter released this video as a teaser of what players can expect.

Alongside the new maps, the update has also signalled the start of season two, progress missions, secret stash, local quick teams and a new region system.

When launching PUBG on your device, you’ll be advised that it’s not compulsory, but you’ll be unable to play any on the new patch.

The download is approximately 1.2GB but will need about 3.6 of free space to run the update. You have to go to the App store in order to download the changes.

If you update before the 23rd of May, you’ll receive 2x EXP Card, 1-Day, 2x BP Cardm 1-day, Outfit Box III (7d) and 1,888 BP.

Tommyinnit reveals he used to stream snipe Shroud before he was famous

Tommyinnit might be the most popular streamer on Twitch right now, averaging over 200,000 concurrent viewers for his sporadic Minecraft streams, but it turns out he used to be a massive shroud fanboy. In fact, he was one of shroud’s infamous stream snipers.

Stream sniping is the practice of using a streamer’s broadcast to gain information about the game they are playing – either to get an unfair advantage, or simply to join their game and troll them.

During the height of PUBG’s popularity in 2017, shroud was the biggest streamer on Twitch, and had an army of loyal stream snipers who would try endlessly to get into his matches.

Shroud’s stream snipers weren’t like others though – instead of trying to kill him, they would sing him songs, give him weapons and armor, or try to save his life when under attack.

Tommyinnit admits shroud stream sniping

Although it’s against the rules of most games and of Twitch itself, Tommyinnit has admitted that when he was 14, back in 2017, he loved both PUBG and shroud, and would spend hours up late trying to get into his games.

And he was successful too – often matching up with him, and trying to save his life from actual enemies attacking him. Shroud eventually became familiar with Tommy’s name, and would say hello to him. In a video on his second channel, Tommyoutit, came clean about all of his stream sniping antics.

In one session, shroud even talked to Tommy about playing Minecraft, the game that he’s so well-known for now.

But, it turns out that Tommyinnit made this video because it wasn’t just years ago in PUBG that he was stream sniping shroud. When he recently saw shroud on a Minecraft server with proximity chat, he had to try it again for old times sake.

Unfortunately, shroud didn’t seem to be enjoying himself at all this time around, and soon after left the server – though not before killing Tommyinnit’s character, twice.

Although stream sniping is technically against the rules on Twitch, we’re sure the platform will let this one slide, as it was all in good fun. The real question is whether shroud has made the connection that one of his old stream snipers is now one of the biggest names on Twitch alongside him.
