If you’re playing PUBG this weekend, you just might get to use a Motor Glider!
PUBG Labs is testing out this two-seater just for a few days. PC players of the game are in for a treat as they get to use this ultralight aircraft. The Motor Glider is available in PUBG Labs from today at 12.30 PM until December 23. The aircraft will spawn randomly across maps such as Erangel and Miramar.
The game’s blog states: “You’ve been hittin’ the roads on the battlegrounds pretty hard, but where we’re going, we don’t need roads. Final boarding call for the Motor Glider mode only available for a limited time. Take to the air in the new Motor Glider and get the drop on enemy squads wherever they are.
The Motor Glider can transport you and a squadmate in the air and get you to the far side of the circle in no time. To take off, you’ll need to get the speed up to 70km/h (so not quite the 88 miles per hour you’d need for time travel) and once you’re moving you can use the sticky throttle to lock in your forward acceleration. Be careful around the rotor or you’ll learn who wins in a faceoff between your face and a mower.
While in the air, using the high ground to their advantage, passengers can rain shots and molotovs. Only the engine can be destroyed with wings taking less damage compared to the body, but the tires can’t be damaged – so you’ll be able to keep it moving even after your engine is disabled by gliding and landing.”
Here are its mechanics.
*Motor Glider has two seats; one for pilot and one for passenger who can shoot and use any weapon from the backseat
*Motor Glider will be spawned around the map
*To take off, you must gain the necessary speed of 65 km/h then pitch up with the S key.
*You’ll start to take off automatically once you hit 70 km/h.
*Motor Glider’s fuel consumption rate is tied to the engine speed – the more throttle you apply, the faster you will run out of gas.
*There’s no maximum altitude you can reach, the sky is the limit! But the engine will start losing power the higher the altitude you are at.
*Use W/S keys to control the pitch and A/D to control the roll of the aircraft
*Adjust the throttle by holding Left Shift and Left Ctrl keys
*Hold Spacebar when on the ground to engage the handbrake
