The PLAYERUNKOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS dev team announced Tuesday the Motor Glider will make its way from PUBG Labs onto live servers later this week. The Motor Glider will go live Wednesday and come to console at the start of Season 6. The addition of the Motor Glider to live servers will bring with it more high-intensity gameplay with new possibilities for aerial duels.
The Motor Glider Mode, which introduced the Motor Glider to the PUBG community, was only scheduled to be live for four days on PUBG Labs. After overwhelming community support for the Motor Glider, the game mode was extended for another six days.
PUBG Motor Glider Changes for Live Servers
The addition of the Motor Glider to live servers also comes with a few changes for the beloved flying contraption involving spawn rate and fuel.
There will be 10 Motor Gliders on Erangel and Miramar, just like in PUBG Labs, but the number of spawn locations will be increased from 10 to 40. In other words, the chance of a Motor Glider spawning at a particular location will drop from 100 percent to 25 percent when the Motor Glider goes live.
Also, the Motor Glider will no longer start fueled. This change will require players to gather fuel on the ground before they can take flight and push back the time in the game when players can take to the skies.
Nevertheless, the keyboard controls for flying the Motor Glider will remain the same and the amount of fuel used will still be tied to the engine speed and use of the throttle.
