PUBG Mobile 0.16.5 includes Royale Pass Season 11, new Arena map, and Domination Mode

A new month means it’s time for new Android security patches and a new PUBG Mobile update. Version 0.16.5 brings several noteworthy features, including Royale Pass Season 11, a new Arena map, a new Domination Mode, a new vehicle, and more. Let’s dive in.

Royale Pass Season 11 starts January 10th and it brings new missions for players to earn rewards. PUBG Mobile 0.16.5 also includes a new TDM Arena map called “Town.” The map is described as “an expansive map with a large terrain variety.” Along with the new map, there comes a new Arena Mode called “Domination.” This mode puts players in two teams of four and the goal is to capture two out of the three bases.


Speaking of maps, the training Warehouse has returned and firearms have been rebalanced for Arena mode. A lot of people are experiencing winter right now, so PUBG Mobile is being seasonal and releasing a new Light Snowmobile vehicle for Classic Mode. This vehicle only spawns in Vikendi and can accommodate two players. The Light Snowmobile is faster and more agile than the standard Snowmobile, but it takes damage easier.

So that’s basically it for PUBG Mobile 0.16.5, another solid update for the popular game. Anyone who updates to the new version between now and January 15th will get 20 silver, 2,000 BP, and 1 Blue Glider Trail. So go forth and download the update now! Good luck!

  • Light Snowmobile – In Classic Mode, players can now enjoy the new vehicle exclusively in Vikendi map, which is the perfect ride for two. It is faster and moves more efficiently than the original Snowmobile but is also more easily damaged
