New Feature: Tactical Gear

We’ve decided to introduce a whole new category of tactical items, Tactical Gear, that strays from pure gunplay to provide our players various options for improving their in-game performances.

As Tactical Gear will be taking up players’ primary weapon slots, we hope this will allow players to come up with more creative long-term strategies.

Tactical Gear: Drone

  • The Drone is a Tactical Gear that allows players to scout a far distance safely and even pick up an item without facing the risk of direct combat.
  • Drones will spawn in every map.
  • Drones will be available in Normal Matches, Custom Games, Training Mode, and Sandbox Mode.
  • Once players loot and equip the drone, they can hold the Drone Tablet in their hands.
  • Players can then toggle in and out of Drone View.
  • The Drone will launch into the air once players toggle into Drone View.
  • A Drone in flight will make noise and have a distinctive blinking light.
  • A deployed Drone will be identifiable by a unique drone icon both on the map and minimap.
  • In Drone View, players’ characters will stop moving and give up control of their body as they fly around in the perspective of the Drone.
  • If players toggle out of Drone View, the Drone will remain hovering in its current position.
  • Players can recall a Drone in flight.
  • When a recall is initiated, the Drone will attempt to fly back in a straight line to the spot the player recalled it.
  • The Drone will fly back to the location the player first recalled it.
  • When the recall is in progress, the recall will be stopped if the player attempts to use the Drone Tablet.
  • When the recall is in progress, the recall will be stopped if the player uses the recall feature again.
  • The Drone can not avoid obstacles or move through solid objects while being recalled.
  • The Drone has a large 300m operation radius that players must stay in while flying the Drone.
  • The Drone alerts players with a warning message and a static screen when it’s within 90m of its maximum operation radius.
  • If the Drone leaves its operation radius, it will get destroyed and players will need to retrieve it and repair the Drone to use it again.
  • The Drone has a maximum HP of 35 and can take damage from various things.

A Drone can be damaged by

  • Gunfire
  • Explosions
  • Fire
  • Water
  • Flying outside of the operation radius
  • Vehicle collision

When the Drone’s HP reaches 0, it will fall to the ground and get destroyed. Players must retrieve the Drone and repair it to use it again.

  • A Drone can loot a single item to its single inventory slot.
  • For example, a stack of bandages (5) is also considered a single item.
  • Drones can not pick up items from Care Packages, deathboxes, and trunks.
  • Players in Drone View are also able to drop the held item any time.
  • Players can receive the Drone’s held item by recalling the Drone.
  • Players will be able to ping normally while toggled in Drone View.
  • The ping icon will be displayed as a regular ping.​

The EMT Gear is a Tactical Gear that allows players to opt into increased healing potential for both themselves and their team at the cost of reduced combat flexibility.

  • The EMT Gear will spawn in every map.
  • 2 stacks of bandages (10) will spawn alongside the EMT Gear.
  • The EMT Gear will be available in Normal Matches, Custom Games, Training Mode, and Sandbox Mode.
  • Players will receive numerous passive benefits with the EMT Gear, regardless of if they’re holding it or have it stowed away.
  • It will only take 3 seconds to use healing items such as bandages, First Aid Kits, and Med Kits.
  • It will only take 3 seconds to revive a knocked down teammate.
  • Players can walk much faster when using healing items than when normally using healing items.
  • Bandages and First Aid Kits can heal players to max health.
  • Med Kits will give full boost to players.
  • Players with the EMT Gear equipped will gain an ability to interact with damaged teammates.
  • Players can spend one of their own healing items on their teammate.
  • Players can toggle between different healing items on the bottom screen where a weapon’s fire mode would normally be displayed.
  • The display would also show the number of the selected heal item that the player has in their inventory.
  • The EMT Gear will NOT grant the following boosts when used in the Blue Zone:
  • Healing boosts (teammates can still be healed)
  • Shortened revival time
  • Lobby Theme
  • The main lobby has been updated to a new theme of an inside of a plane in flight.
  • A new background music has been applied.
  • Players may change the background music in the Settings.
  • This lobby theme will not be applied to other lobbies such as Ranked, etc.
