    • Sniper rifles only. May the best aim win!
  • Trios
    • Classic Battle Royale with Three-Person squads.
  • Solid Gold Squads
    • Fight to the finish using Legendary weapons.

WEAPONS + ITEMS

  • Chug Splash
    • On impact, this thrown item splashes liquid in a small area. All players within the splash radius will be instantly granted 20 Health/Shield.
      • Grants health unless you are full health, in which case it will grant Shield.
      • Chug Splash can heal allies, enemies, and can extend the duration of the ‘knocked’ state for knocked players.
    • Rare variant.
    • Drops in stacks of 2.
    • Max stack size: 6.
    • Can be found from Floor Loot, Chests, Vending Machines, Supply Drops, and Llamas.
  • Shotgun Swap Delay Removed
    • Shotgun cooldowns now only apply when the player is carrying multiple shotguns, regardless of Shotgun type.
      • This is a Quality of Life change to prevent the swap delay system from interfering with players who do not have multiple shotguns in their inventory. As with all changes, we’ll be keeping a close eye on this and make adjustments if necessary.
  • Reduced the Combat Shotgun’s long-range effectiveness
    • Reduced damage at medium distances by 10%
      • 2.44 tiles to 4.88 tiles
    • Reduced damage at long distances by 20%
      • 4.88 tiles to 9.76 tiles
    • The Combat Shotgun’s accuracy uniquely enables players to hit shots from longer distances compared to other shotguns. However, the damage at those longer ranges was a little higher than desired..
  • Vaulted
    • Boom Bow
    • Dual Pistols
    • Dynamite
    • These Vaults are primarily targeted at adjusting the availability of explosives, putting them more in line with where we think they should be.
  • Removed the ability to ride Proximity Grenade Launcher projectiles
    • Due to the faster speed of this projectile, it was causing problems with level streaming. You can still ride rockets launched from Rocket Launchers.

  • Added Storm Flip to Audio Visualizer when it is activated
  • Toys no longer will show up in the elimination feed on Starter Island

  • Supply Drones would sometimes spawn underground in areas with water.
  • Adjusted the area of around the Reboot Van that players cannot build to prevent the placement of floors and traps under the Van.
  • The Proximity Grenade Launcher was auto reloading while aiming down sights.
    • This is fix makes it consistent with Snipers and will reload once unscoping or after next attempt to fire.
  • Adjusted the timing for the effects of consumables to help situations where players would switch away from the consumable before it finished activating.
  • Reboot Cards will no longer fall to the ground. They will remain where they spawn.
  • Reboot Cards were remaining available on the map even after the timer had expired.
  • Campfires could block explosion damage at specific angles.
  • The Shadow Bomb double jump ability could be activated while under the effect of a Boogie Bomb.
  • Boogie Bomb effects would continue playing on players while they were skydiving.

  • Players that had a Rift to Go used on them at the same time they were being rebooted would sometimes not be put into the skydiving state.
