PUBG War Mode Returns On PC For Limited Time

Published

on

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is bringing back War Mode, for a limited time, with a few changes being implemented for the limited time event.

In this version of War Mode, players will be grouped into 10 teams of five on Miramar and will be contained within a static safe zone which PUBG Corp claims is much bigger and players will also spawn with “top-tier” equipment, including a level 3 helmet and vest, two grenades, and one random weapon that could usually only be found in care packages.

Here is a full breakdown, according to the announcement on Steam.

EVENT SCHEDULE 

STARTS: May 3, 7pm PST / May 4, 4am CEST / May 4, 11am KST
ENDS: May 6, 7pm PST / May 7, 4am CEST / May 7, 11am KST

AVAILABLE QUEUES

5-Man Squads on Miramar (All Regions)
NA/EU/AS/SEA/OC/SA: TPP & FPP
KR/JP: TPP

WAR MODE RULES

  • All players are grouped up in teams of five. Each game will have a maximum of 50 players (up to ten full teams).
  • Immediately after the plane gets into the air, the safe zone is visible on the map.
  • The safe zone is small—but slightly larger than the previous iteration of War Mode—and never closes in or changes location throughout the duration of the game.
  • Getting kills and knocks (when your opponent is “down but not out”) earns points for your team. The first team to get 200 points wins.
    • Kill: +3 points
    • Knocks: +1 point
    • Own Team Kill / Own Team Knock: -5 points
  • If no team reaches 200 points before the 15-minute time limit, the team with the highest score will be declared the winner.
  • Each time you’re killed, you’ll respawn in planes that fly by every 40 seconds.

LOADOUTS, LOOT, AND CARE PACKAGES

This time around, players spawn with top-tier equipment that’s normally found only in care packages. This includes:

  • One random care package weapon (AWM, M24, Mk14, M249, Groza, or AUG)
  • A level three vest
  • A level three helmet
  • Two grenades

OTHER EVENT RULES

  • Weather is locked at sunset.
  • Bleedout damage when knocked is increased.
  • Reviving knocked teammates takes only two seconds.
  • You can invite up to four players from your friends list to your party before
  • jumping into game. Any remaining open team slots will be filled by the auto-
  • matching system.
  • Care package drops are disabled.
  • Killer spectating is disabled.
  • Redzone is disabled.

s1mple

NAVI is getting set to release a documentary that will follow s1mple’s life and explore his “ups and downs” as one of the most recognizable esports players with insight from former and current teammates, his family, commentators, analysts, and “many others” from the industry.

“I remember the time when we just signed a contract in 2016,” NAVI CEO Yevhen Zolotarov said in an official press release. “Honestly, now it’s hard to believe that it was already five years ago. For the esports industry, five years is quite a long period of time.”

“S1mple is a legend not only for NAVI but for esports in general,” co-founder and CEO of DMarket Vlad Panchenko said. “Therefore, the items that will be dropping during the NAVI watch party stream are also legendary and unique.”

DMarket has created a “unique drop-game” with exclusive items dedicated to s1mple to coincide with the release of the doc, and Natus Vincerewill be premiering a documentary about him on Twitch next month, to celebrate his fifth year with the brand.

Additionally, a NAVI watch party is also set for the doc, set to air on one of their upcoming twitch streams set to take place on September 8th at 11am CT.
