Battle Royale

What’s New?

Moisty Palms
In this swampy new Rift Zone, you can crouch to disguise yourself as a prop!

Greasy Grove
A Rift Zone has brought back Greasy Grove, but the neighborhood’s favorite food is now tacos. The tacos here are so good that even their smell makes people party!

Gameplay

  • Moisty Palms
    • The Rift Beacon at Paradise Palms has created this new POI! In addition to its swampy nature, this Rift Zone is known for being a good place to keep a low profile.
      • While in the Rift Zone, crouching will disguise players as a random prop. They can exit the prop state by using the Primary Fire button.
        • Players are still able to take damage while in prop form.
      • ADS lets players lock in place and look around for unsuspecting victims.
  • Greasy Grove
    • A Rift Zone has brought back Greasy Grove! But this time, Durrr Burger is out, and Tacos are in!

Shield Bubble
This is a bubble that’s not easy to burst. Take cover under this dome that’s invulnerable to projectiles and explosives!
10BR_ShieldBubble_Social.jpg

Weapons + Items

  • Shield Bubble
    • Rare item.
    • Found from Floor Loot, Chests, Supply Drops, and Vending Machines.
    • Lasts for 30 seconds.
    • Creates a large bubble that blocks projectiles and explosives. However, players can still run through it.
      • Projectiles and explosives can be fired from inside the bubble but cannot go outside of it.
      • The bubble’s emitter has 400 HP. Destroying it deactivates the bubble.
  • B.R.U.T.E.
    • The B.R.U.T.E.’s map icon will remain visible to all players after players board one. The icon will follow the vehicle as it moves.
      • This is to increase awareness of a B.R.U.T.E.’s presence and location to all players in the match.
    • The B.R.U.T.E. changes below were implemented between August 22-23.
      • Decreased the maximum amount of rockets fired by the B.R.U.T.E. in a single charge from 10 to 6.
      • Decreased the rate at which the rockets are fired from the B.R.U.T.E. by 56%.
      • The B.R.U.T.E. no longer grants materials to the driver and passenger when stomping or dashing through the environment.
      • Returned the explosion radius of B.R.U.T.E. missiles back to their original range.
        • We had decreased the explosion radius by 42% in the August 22 hotfix. This change in particular felt like an overswing, making it too difficult for the B.R.U.T.E to hit targets with less rockets and mobility. So on August 23 we brought the damage radius back (in core modes) to where it was before August 22. We’re continuing to closely evaluate the B.R.U.T.E. changes to make sure they align with our goals.
          • As of v10.20, these changes are now also in Arena & Tournament playlists.
      • Increased the dash cooldown from 3 seconds to 5 seconds.
      • Decreased the velocity gained from boosting while in air by 33%.
      • Adjusted the variability of spawn rates for storm phases 1, 2, and 3 in core modes.
        • Note: These adjustments do not affect the spawn rates in Arena and Tournament playlists. You can find those spawn rates in the v10.10 Patch Notes.
        • Storm phase 1
          • Increased the maximum number of B.R.U.T.E. spawns from 5 to 6.
          • Reduced the chance for 0 B.R.U.T.E.s to spawn from 29% to 14.3%.

            • 25% chance to spawn 0.
            • 25% chance to spawn 1.
