NEW ARCADE MODE: SHOTTIES & SNIPERS!
A new Arcade Mode ruleset is available for the next two weekends – Shotties & Snipers! Are you ready to take aim or get up close and personal? Shotties & Snipers plays out like a typical Solos match, except that the only weapons available in military crates and airdrop crates are shotguns and snipers. As you parachute in, the airdrops will begin – Riot Shotguns will be the only weapons that spawn on the ground, so find a military crate or fight for an airdrop to upgrade!
With limited weapons available, you’ll only need to find a Waist Pack to have all the storage you need. Will you go for the Gold and pick off your opponents with the M40, or close the distance with the Combat Shotgun?
To play Shotties & Snipers, select the “Arcade” option from the Play menu. Shotties & Snipers will be available at the below times in each region:
