Explore the wild, equip your role with devastating damage weapons, and start your wild hunt of zombies, monsters, and many other infected creatures! Fabulous rewards will be rewarded for a challenging task, for example, killing a berserker. Play solo or with a group, choose your preferred play style!

    PUBG Mobile Zombie's Edge


    - A Berserker is a guardian of the base of the Aerolith Lab. It can call on the other infected creatures, so it can be very hard to defeat. A group fight could be sometimes a wise choice.

    - The defeat of a Berserker will bring you a set of mutation gauntlets which can largely increase your chance to survive.


    - A Ripper is a kind of mutant. It kills like an assassin and often wanders in groups.

    - It moves super fast, so be careful when you are confronted with a group of Rippers.

    Two strong Mutation weapons will drop from these two infected strong enemies if you can defeat them: One is Mutation Gauntlets and the other is Mutation Blade.
