The BGMI 1.7 update will feature Mirror World mode based on the BGMI x Arcane collaboration. Players will be able to play with the League of Legends character present in the Arcane animated web series.

There are four different characters with amazing skills available for players to use in the game. Players can also land on the Mirror World Island directly from their plane to get extra loot.

2) Piggyback and smoke grenade effect:

The new piggyback feature helps players carry their knocked teammates on their backs. BGMI’s smoke grenades have been augmented as well. Players will now be able to see an arc of smoke when a grenade is thrown, helping them understand the trajectory of the nade.

Note: Players are advised to use caution and only download APK files from trusted sites and mirrors. Any BGMI 1.7 APK uploaded before November 19 is most likely fake and should not be installed.
