PUBG War Mode For All Makes It A Completely Different Game, Fortnite Should Notice That

It started appearing in the Custom games menu of PUBG, an extremely popular game introducing a specific mode to only a subset limited number of users. With the enjoyable War mode, now, after trying that game mode out with a limited set of users, the PUBG War Mode has officially available to all.

What’s new and worse things about War mode? One thing, in particular, seemed to resonate with PUBG gamers, is that the mode seemed a lot more like a traditional battle royale, a completely different game.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds continues to keep up with its limited time modes. War, which just went live, changes essentially all of the basic building blocks that make PUBG what it is. Building something totally different in the process. What we mean is that the sole purpose of the mode was for teams to rack up as many points as possible by executing opponents. And some important points have been noted below.

War is PUBG, ostensibly. But it’s more like a team deathmatch game built on top of the PUBG platform. Total game-based carnage and definitely a mode which brings out the adrenaline in gamers and injects that competitive edge. A lot of the PUBG faithful felt left out due to the fact that War was only available to those gamers who were classified as premium, and, as such, were able to start custom games.

After testing, War mode is now available to all, essentially means that all gamers can experience the intimate carnage that it brings. Here are the changes you’ll find: first off, you can respawn. Right there, things have become totally different. Instead, there are three teams of ten that are fighting it out in a space the size of a late-game circle carved out of the larger map. That circle never changes and serves more just to define an arena than to play any role in match progression.

Although the “one life to live” idea is pretty essential to a battle royale. Every player in the War mode gets a random AR or DMR on a drop, and then they just sort of shoot it out: if you die, you wind up right back on the plane, right above the action. Points are awarded for kills and reviews, and the first team to 200 points win.

From a functional perspective, War steps away from the 100 man free-for-all by splitting gamers up into three teams of ten individuals and dropping those teams into an extremely small close-knit section of the Erangel map. Each individual is able to come across more equipment as the game progresses. It may start fair, but looking better equipment from buildings means that it doesn’t otherwise need to end fairly.

Obviously, it plays totally different than normal PUBG. The points system for War mode is also relatively simple, and there’s still tension — this is still a quick time-to-kill game with weapons that are capable at distance – you get harried when a real shooting encounter only happens every ten minutes. Area control is crucial, but the ability to choose where you drop also sets this apart from a regular deathmatch game. Of one team has an area on lockdown, you can always try parachuting in from their flanks and trying to take them by surprise – at least if you die as often as many do.

each team will get three points for each kill, a single point for a down-but-not-out situation, and a single point for each revives. Each War game will last for five minutes, and if, and if you actually die in the game then you will randomly respawn in a plane and be thrown back into the chaos. Honestly, I can’t say this mode all that much – if I want to play a deathmatch game, there are even better deathmatch games around.

Nevertheless, it’s still a great thing for PUBG fans who want a slightly different experience without leaving their game of choice, however, and it’s exactly how these limited time modes should be used in War. All-in-all, a chaotic and highly enjoyable game mode which is available to all right now in PUBG. Check out the complete details below:

Note: While PUBG is its own thing, it’s impossible to talk about it without comparing it to Fortnite Battle Royale, especially where limited time modes are concerned. Where most of Fortnite’s modes are variants on the essential gameplay: quicker battle royale, a battle royale with bigger teams, a battle royale with all explosives, etc. War is way bigger change than that.
