One of the greatest modern games, Player Unknown's Battlegrounds (popularly known as PUBG), arrived on Android last year and proved a smash hit. Even better, this mobile version of the popular battle royale game is being well-supported, and a bunch of new features have just arrived with the latest update. Ready to try out some cool new weapons in the jungle? Time to jump into the fight and win that chicken dinner!

Update: version 0.10.5 brings new AR weapons with Laser Sight

The latest version of PUBG Mobile has started rolling out to players and with it comes a handful of cool new features. Among the additions is a new AR weapon with a laser sight attachment called the Mk47 Mutant. It offers multiple firing modes as well as a 20-bullet clip. You can extend the clip size to 30 by adding a larger magazine. The old attachments, such as grips, muzzles, sights and scopes, are also compatible with the new Mk47 Mutant.

Publisher Tencent says that the new laser sight offers better recoil control to make taking out distant enemies without a scope easier. Also coming to the PUBG is season five of the Royal Pass. The new season will add new premium outfits, emotes, accessories and other rewards. The Royal Pass Season 5 also begins tomorrow at 02:00 UTC.

Also confirmed for PUBG is zombies! In a separate tweet which tagged @RE_Games, it said: "In order to celebrate the highly anticipated Resident Evil 2 coming out on January 25, we are celebrating now with Duos event! We look forward to the full release of the collaboration content later this month and can't wait to share more with you."

There are also bug fixes and tweaks such as Vikendi's loot has now been tuned and the shop has also been adjusted.

Although the team behind PUBG Mobile announced the update officially, its availability will depend on your region, so if you don't see the update available for your device, just sit tight, you probably just need to wait for the rollout to reach you.

    Sanhok is too difficult. I get snipped way too often & can't last more than 5 minutes.

    I have been surprised at how good this game really is, the controls are great for a mobile game. The game play and graphics are brilliant and there is no lag at all. Nice article Luca.
