  • Summary
    • Two large teams fight for the Victory Royale in an action-packed mode where the first team to get 100 eliminations wins!
  • Mode Details
    • Two teams of 20 players.
    • Players will respawn after 5 seconds when eliminated, keeping their inventory.
    • Eliminated players spawn a random type of ammo upon elimination, as well as a random stack of either 120 Wood, 90 Stone, or 60 Metal materials.

      • Pump Shotgun maximum damage increased from 80 / 85 to 95 / 100
