Limited Time Modes (LTMs)

50V50 v2

Two teams of up to fifty players battle it out on the map.

Each team gets dropped onto the map via their own battle buses on opposite sides of the map. A dotted line is marked on the map to indicate the half-way point, crossing this line makes you more likely to encounter enemies.

Loot is heavily buffed, meaning you will find high-quality weapons frequently as you search around. Some of the changes include:

  • Resource gain increased by 75%
  • Floor loot spawns 15% more often.
  • Double the floor loot ammo.
  • Triple the ammo box ammo.
  • Double ammo & consumables in chests.
  • Supply drops spawn double ammo, an extra consumable, a resource drop, a trap, and a legendary weapon. Drops come every two minutes in the safe zone.

The Storm has been heavily altered in this game mode. Instead of new circles constantly being formed after the storm finishes shrinking, there is only one storm circle for the entire match, located somewhere along the half-way point. The storm shrinks constantly over 10 minutes until it hits the main circle. then the teams have three minutes to fight it out before it becomes incredibly small, shrinking to the center of the main circle.

The Storm will deal 10 damage per second throughout the entire map, and you will lose 5 health per second when downed. Be sure to revive your teammates when possible, as you can only survive knocked down for a maximum of twenty seconds.
