PUBG War Mode Quietly Added, Death Match And Respawns Added
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has been running through a gauntlet of limited-time modes lately, the most recent of which was an exciting one called Tequila Sunrise. With that mode still active for another day or so, the developer has put in a new PUBG War Mode for testing on PC before releasing it as the next event.
PUBG War Mode turns the battle royale title into something resembling team deathmatch. It enables respawning, where killed players will be respawned at certain time intervals throughout the round. The squad that reaches the target score first wins. Here’s the full breakdown for PUBG War Mode:
PUBG War Mode
War Mode is a death match type game mode that allows respawning. As soon as you jump into the game, the safe area (White Zone) will immediately be set; if you die you will be respawned at certain time intervals.
- The goal is to obtain 80 points and the default is a 4 player squad
- The match ends if an individual or a team gets to the target score first or if time runs out. BP rewards will be given out when the match ends
- Ranking will be determined based on scores earned
- DBNO: + 1 point
- Revive: + 1 point
- Team Kill or Team DBNO: -5 point
- Kill: + 3 points
- Respawn method: player reenters the match area via respawn airplane
- Default respawn interval: 60 seconds
- Main weapon setting for default respawn: SMG provided as main weapon for close quarter battles
- The care package aircraft will fly over every 60 seconds. The composition of the air drop is the same as in the regular game.
- By default, the safe zone is static. This (and many other settings) can be tweaked in custom games.
PUBG War Mode is currently only available within custom games and for players that have the ability to host games, though it will be brought to the live servers once the Tequila Sunrise event has concluded. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is available for PC and Xbox One.
