It was the end of season 2 of the PUBG Mobile Pro League Arabia yesterday. The underdog team Cryptics surprised everyone by winning the championship. Along with the trophy, the team also received $10,000 USD in prize money.

Cryptics dominated the first day of the finals. A second-day drop brought them to second place, but a strong final day brought them back to first. Cryptics acquired the roster of RTG Esports that came into PMPL by winning PMCO: MENA Wildcard. YaLLa Esports took second place, while FATE Esports finished third on the list. Galaxy Racer had an underwhelming final as they finished in sixth place.
