BGMI’s Virus Infection mode features three rounds, where players need to eliminate hordes of zombies. Players who are attacked by zombies get infected and they can hunt down surviving players. Players, as well as zombies, can also pick up boosters to gain abilities. The infected player who infects other players to reach level 3 becomes the Zombie King, and the last 3 surviving players emerge as Heroes.
