Everything to know about the new Runes in PUBG Mobile

The Runes are like special abilities that will be given to the players once they choose any of them in the lobby.

There are a total of three Runes available in PUBG Mobile: Arctic Rune, Flame Rune, and Wind Rune.

After a player enters the match in PUBG Mobile, he/she will be given a choice to select any of these three abilities by tapping on the Rune power button at the bottom of the screen. Once they choose the ability, they can use that particular Rune for extra assistance on the battleground.


Here are the abilities of the Runes:

Wind Rune

  • Wind Shelter: Creates a shield of wind that reduces the damage of enemies' bullets.
  • Wind Boost: Increases movement speed, reloading speed, and damage against ice walls.

Flame Rune

  • Magma Wheel: It creates a flame wheel that rolls forward.
  • Scorching ammo: Adds a burning effect to bullets and increases damage dealt with wind wells.

Arctic Rune

  • Ice Wall: Creates a wall of ice that blocks bullets but is easily destroyed by melee attacks.
  • Freezing Ammo: Bullets reduce enemies healing effects and deal extra damage to the fire wheel.
