NEW LTM: BATTLE ZONE
Two teams fight to be the last one standing in the Battle Zone! The Safe Zone starts large and will get smaller as the round progresses. Be careful, however, because you will begin to take damage if you step outside of it. This mode also features a new shop, no health regeneration, and weapon crates at various map locations.
- This is a 4v4 team-based mode where each player only has one life and a best of 7.
- Each round, you will have a baseline of cash plus what was earned from eliminations, downs, assists, and revives. Your cash does not carry over from round to round (no saving!).
- You will start with a Secondary weapon, but you can find weapon crates in various map locations containing Primary weapons.
- Purchased gadgets will not carry over from round to round (use it or lose it!), but Perks will be permanent for the entire match.
- Your base health is 125, but there is no auto regeneration.
- Mythic crates have a chance to spawn each round.
- You will see mythic crates in the map and on the minimap when they spawn.
- This may happen when the first circle draws or after the first 30-second timer.
- You are now able to ping weapons.
- You will now see a rarity color of the weapon or armor you have in your HUD.
- You will also see the rarity of the weapon you currently have equipped.
- There is no limit to how many perks you can purchase, and they last the entire match.
- Available Perks
- Stalker: Removes aim down sights movement speed penalty.
- Quick Hands: Increase weapon swap speed, reload speed and reload while sprinting.
- Padded Steps: Silence the sound of your footsteps when not sprinting.

- Most gadgets have an upgrade that will give a greater number of that gadget.
All Armor is repairable.

- Legendary (Gold): 75 armor
- Mythic (Orange): 100 armor
- Ability now recharges every 35 seconds.

With Saint now having Lifeline and drone flight speed increased, we think he will be completing many more revives than before. As such, we’re slightly reducing the flat heal given to Saint and his teammates when completing a revive.
- Drone now travels to downed teammates 50% faster.
- Saint’s passive heal on reviving now heals for 60 instead of 80 health.
- Ability duration increased from 6 to 10 seconds.
- Increased the heat signature of enemies, allowing you to see them behind cover.
- Improved Bow radius revealed from 8 to 10 meters.
We feel the KA30 is a bit too stable, especially when upgraded, for the amount of damage and versatility it offers.
- Increased recoil
- Nerf recoil reduction upgrade
- Headshot damage increased from 140 to 150.
- Body damage increased from 70 to 80.
- Clip size increased from 9 to 12.
- Body damage increased from 21 to 22
- Head damage increased from 30 to 32
- Damage Falloff adjusted
The HRM 30k is tuned to be a headshot gun through and through. We want to make sure players aren’t fighting against too much reticle bloom when they’re expecting to hit headshots, so we’re making the weapon bloom a bit less at base and moving the bloom reduction upgrade to allow for faster access in your build. We feel bullet penetration is too niche of an upgrade for a weapon already niche in other ways. It is the only assault rifle without a magazine size upgrade on top of having the smallest magazine size in class. We believe subbing in a smaller mag size upgrade instead of bullet penetration will feel more worth purchasing.
