Notes[ | ]

  1. This is similar to the abandon penalty applied in Ranked Battle Royale games. You only get the penalty if you were in a full squad when you left (this doesn't apply if you were partied with the leaver - you'll still get penalized in that case). This patch will activate a warning for players who are about to leave a game in-progress. The associated penalties will follow shortly after.
  2. This is a placeholder fix to offset the fact that the buy phase currently isn't being taken into account for "survival time". In a future patch we'll adjust the survival time calculation to include the buy phase and return the survival XP earn rate to its previous level.
  3. This should cause backpacks to spawn more evenly on the ground as opposed to being spawned almost exclusively in supply bins.
  4. The starter kit changes introduced in the May 04, 2021 Patch had caused them to be lowered by more than expected.
