BATTLE ROYALE

GENERAL

LIMITED TIME MODE: FINAL FIGHT: TEAMS OF 20

Summary

Survive the countdown! The Storm Circles give players more room to hunt down opponents. The final circle triggers a countdown timer; when the time is up, the team with the most players remaining wins. In this LTM, teams can tie for the Victory Royale!

Mode Details

  • Final Fight plays similar to standard Battle Royale, but instead of the Storm circles closing all the way, the Storm stops after the 3rd circle.
  • When the circles have finished closing in, the final countdown timer will begin.
  • The remaining teams will battle it out until the timer expires.
  • The team with the most players remaining at the end of the timer wins!
  • In the event of a tie, the two (or more) teams tied for the lead win the match.

WEAPONS + ITEMS

  • Stink Bomb added.
    • Creates a stinky cloud that deals 5 damage every half-second within the cloud.
    • 9-second duration.
    • Epic rarity.
    • Can be found from floor loot, chests, and Vending Machines.
    • Loot in stacks of 3 with a maximum stack of 5.
  • Increased the reload time of the Rocket Launcher based on rarity.
    • Rare from 2.3 seconds to 2.8.
    • Epic from 2.185 seconds to 2.66.
