The ‘Download’ tab has been added to the settings of PUBG Mobile, where players can download/delete resource packs. This feature has undoubtedly enabled the users to manage and minimize the storage size of PUBG Mobile.

Moreover, they are provided with some rewards for downloading specific packs.

The developers have prepared two different sets of packs that players can download upon starting the game:


Low-spec resource pack (329.9 MB):

“Apply the low-spec version of all graphic resources. Resources are downloaded quickly, and the game runs more smoothly.”

HD Resource Pack (583.2MB):

“Apply the HD version of all graphic resources. Superior performance and effects, providing the best experience.”

Players now only need to download the desired resource packs in PUBG Mobile. To begin with, they will only have the Erangel map downloaded in-game and will be provided with an option to download the others.

The developers have also introduced a smart delete feature that will recommend the users to delete unused resources. Gamers can check out the video below, by PUBG Mobile, to get a detailed look at the Lightweight Installation Function:
