The one-line description in the tweet had also dropped a hint that Cold Front Survival would be set in an icy region.
According to Gadgets Now, the use of drone in the new mode can be attributed to PUBG Mobile’s rival Call of Duty: Mobile, which allows players to use surveillance drone if they opt the Mechanic class in its Battle Royale mode.
Besides this, Call of Duty: Mobile’s Scout class has sensor darts that reveal the whereabouts of enemies in a small radius through thermal imaging.
