The latest event mode for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds players is now live and the stakes are higher than ever. The Tequila Sunrise mode will be available for just 72 hours and will see battle royale lovers back in Miramar. The four-man squad event is limited to only shotguns and melee weapons, so it's guaranteed to get dicey.

The Flare Gun Mode that debuted last week was an instant hit, so it will be interesting to see what players have to say about Tequila Sunrise. To help with the Shotgun limitation, it is nice to know that the ammo spawn rates will be increased. It's going to be brutal, which is a fun way to break up the monotany of the battle royale genre.
Much like Fortnite's already previously established game modes, these will be high stakes for a limited time only. Earn gear, kick ass, and scribble initials because we don't have time to take full names.
