In addition to all of the skins, the Rev-Shell Trios mode aims to add a different experience to the usual dose of battle royale action. Rev Shells are a target-seeking grenade that's capable of dealing huge damage to anyone that's close by.

Players have the ability to shoot the shell to cause an early explosion and the opportunity for the receiver to return some damage to the sender.
