Limited-Time Modes

We're waiting to see if the event will introduce a new limited-time mode, but Shrugtal has leaked a new "Prize Tracker".

  • 5 Battle Pass Levels
  • 2 Charms (Never Surrender and Thermite Grenade)
  • Epic Rampart Skin: Cytokinetic
  • Epic 30-30 Repeater Skin: Incan Prophecy
  • Rare crypto Skin: Broken Syntax
  • Caustic Trackers

Check out the game's new modes below:

Killing Time:

Every time a player is eliminated, the rounds speed up.

Auto Banners:

Automatically receive teammates' respawn banners when they go down, more mobile respawn beacons.

Armor Regen:

Armor will automatically regenerate after not receiving damage for a period, but this means no shield cells in the loot pool.

Flare Up:

Ring flares are back, but come and go much faster.

Armoured Drop:

This mode will let players drop in with level 1 armour and helmet, a few supplies, and a RE-45 with full attachments.

Second Chance:

The first time you're eliminated, you'll come right back in a dropship. You'll also keep your gear.


The map is covered in hot zones and flashpoints, meaning better loot. Armour also regenerates.
