Battle Grounds Mobile India since its release has never failed to amaze their players with a new update every season and event now or then. In this season, Krafton has introduced players with a new Team Death Match(TDM) mode which has its own unique map called the Santorini that has a special feature of 8v8 TDM mode. This article basically focuses on the tips and tricks that you can apply to ace this new mode.
Santorini is the first 8X8 map introduced in BGMI. This map is based on a Greek island which is in the Aegean Sea in Europe. In this mode, a total of 16 players are spawned at the magical white island of Santorini, each team having a capacity of 8 members. Santorini map comes in both TDM and Arena mode where the player either can choose their weapon from the variety of spawned weapon or their set of pre-selected weapons. This map is comparatively a large map with various angles where the player can use their own witty instincts and various tactics to find a cover as well as a specific spot that will help them to fire and hide when necessary to win an advantage over the other players. The team which is able to defeat 80 players first wins the respective match.
This map calls for fast-paced aggressive gameplay and quick-witted tactics which is different from the normal gameplay style. A few tips are listed below which may help you to ace this game mode.
Select your weapon wisely
The first key point of this fast-paced gaming mode is to make a wise and logical choice of weapon compatible with your gaming style. Here, players are given a choice of choosing two weapons among the other spawned weapons which are assault rifles, SMGs, and snipers. It is advised to the player to choose one SMG and one assault rifle which give the maximum damage within a very small amount of time like M416 or Beryl M762 or SMGs like Uzi or Vector-19.
To know the Map very well
It is advised to use the Santorini map which has various angles to your advantage. As the map is very large, you can use it to your advantage by finding different spots to cover up as well as places from where you can peek fire to gain an advantage over your enemy.
Make use of throwables
Few throwables like bombs, stunts,s and smoke grenades can be beneficial in this map if used wisely. From a few perfect hidden spots if the grenade is thrown to inflict damage or to distract them for a few minutes then they can be also a key element that will help to get that chicken dinner with an ace.
Using the respawn time as a trump card. Sometimes, when the opponent is playing a bit too aggressively then you can use this respawn time hack to defeat them as you are offered a few seconds of no damage after respawn.
Synergy with teammates
Teamwork is a crucial takeaway of this mode. When it comes to an 8v8 Santorini map this point stands out as a vital element of strategy. Coordination and communication play a very important role as this map calls for various plank points or strategies where if played with the right amount of synchronicity can give you an upper hand in the defeat point very easily.
Santorini has been a hit since its release. This mode has been a breath of fresh air for the players along with the new events and updates. I hope this guide helps you to strategize your gameplay and win a few consecutive 8v8 TDM.
