Matches will last a maximum of 15 minutes and storm circles will close quicker than in the normal game.

The first storm circle will already start to close in when the match starts, meaning that players are under immediate pressure to move into the circle as soon as they land on the map.

There are also various loot adjustments that gives players more chances to get hold of important items and weapons.

Floor loot will spawn nearly 100% of the time, whilst treasure chests and ammo boxes will have their spawning boosted to around 90%.

Players will also have a much greater chance of finding launchpads, making it easier to navigate across the map.

Harvesting resources will also be doubled and resource loot will also go up from stacks of 30 to stacks of 100.
