PUBG Mobile Season 11 features the Payload mode, here's how it works and what you need to know.

PUBG Mobile Season 11 arrives with the famous Payload mode, which features explosive and chaotic gameplay - a very big contrast from what is usually tactical and methodical.

PUBG Mobile's next season is shaping up to be one of the biggest in its history with it's multiple new game modes, fresh new content and more.

Be sure to watch our wide variety of PUBG content here!

So what is Payload? Here's how it works.

What Is Payload?

Payload adds aerial combat to the mix and the means to defend yourself.

You can fly in attack helicopters, causing chaos while those around can fight back with rocket and grenade launchers as well as a minigun.

You can also call in airstrikes to level the playing field.


Perks are located on the ground as well.

You can also "recall" lost teammates if you can bring their ID cards to communication towers.

Vehicle repair packs will allow you to keep your UAZ running, so you're not left stranded and at the mercy of your opponents.

Release Date

PUBG Mobile Season 11 has arrived on the 10th January 2020 and players can download it for approximately 0.14GB of storage space on Android and 0.17 on iOS.

New Map?

We knew that there was a new TDM map in development thanks to a post on Reddit from the community team at Tencent. 


TDM has become wildly popular on PUBG Mobile and we can expect to see a lot more content come out around it. 

A proposed layout was shown of the new map which commenters point out looks strikingly familiar to the Killhouse map in Call of Duty.

PUBG Mobile Season 11 New TDM Map

As to whether there will be a new Battle Royale mode map, we’ll have to wait as nothing has been announced or leaked as of late.

Maps in PUBG Mobile Season 11

Each map in the Battle Royale version of the game each have their own themes and layouts designed to appeal to a particular player or playstyle. 

Erangel and Miramar were the first two maps to be released and are the largest being 8x8 km in size however Miramar has more landmass feeling like it is a lot bigger. 

On top of that Miramar is a lot sparser with it being a desert map so there is less cover and hiding spaces compared to the other maps so positioning is key and moving is a lot riskier. 


It also boasts the most loot spawns with over 43,000 different items spawning for players and 8,000 of them being weapon spawns.

Sanhok the third map released is a small swamp-jungle map. At only 4x4 km and made up of 50% water, the map is a lot more compact and fighting is more common leading to fast-paced and exciting games. 

Vikendi is the latest map after the community requested a snowy biome. It is 6x6 and is covered by 60% water although a lot of said water is frozen so can be traversed over by players. 

Overall we're interested to see what the new season will hold for us.
