The second biggest update that has been rolled out is that now all the healing consumables will be throwable. That means now you can throw healings like First Aid Kit, Med Kit, Energy Drinks, Painkillers etc. to your teammates just like grenades and smokes.

4. Mission Ignition Mode

There will be semi trucks in the map which are autonomous driving vehicles that run on set routes and come with supplies. So if want to get good loots, then you have to attack these trucks, and if you are successful in destroying them will be able to get lots of good loot crates.
This new Ignition mode will have a new anti gravity motorcycle called G-38 which looks like a vehicle from the future. It can be run on land and even over water and has a seating capacity of two people.
