What's New since v2?

  • A new, larger Storm circle has been added to the beginning of the match.
  • Extra supply drops fall in the new circle, giving more players a chance to find an open one.
  • Supply drops now come in batches of 4-8 (up from 3-6), fall every two minutes, and only lands in the first two Storm circles.
  • The damage applied over time while in the Down But Not Out state has been changed to the default of 2 damage per tick.
  • Bonus resources earned from farming reduced from +75% to +25%.
  • The Storm circles are now more likely to bias towards the center of the map, this helps make the bus flight path less important.

Mode Details

  • Each team has a bus, approaching the island from opposite directions. On the map, the friendly bus has a blue outline, the enemy has a red outline.
  • The map has a dotted line, which indicates the "battle lines" between the two teams. Crossing the line will make running into enemies more likely.
  • Due to this being a "large squad" mode, Profile Stats will not be tracked. Daily & Weekly challenges will still work, with the exception of the Squad-based challenges.

Loot

  • Increased chances of chests spawning from 50-70% to 75-90%.
  • Increased chances of ammo boxes spawning from 65-80% to 75-90%.
  • Farming resources increased by 25% over the default.
  • Increased floor loot spawn likelihood by 15%.
  • Floor loot spawns double ammo.
  • Ammo boxes spawn triple ammo.
  • Chests spawn double ammo & consumables.
  • Supply drops spawn double ammo, an extra consumable, resource, and trap.

The 50 vs 50 mode will be dropping a little later, with the Sniper Shootout available now!
