As announced at the end of April, Erangel Classic makes its comeback with Update 29.2. We've redesigned the old Erangel map, providing players a chance to relive their memories, all while embracing the game's modern enhancements. While realistic recoil adds to the game's distinctive charm, it has posed a challenge for newcomers. With the gunplay reminiscent of the past, we hope Erangel Classic will evoke memories of the early PUBG days.

Open up a whole new dimension of map navigation and engagement with Rondo's latest addition, the Zipline Gun. Locations that were previously difficult to reach can now be infiltrated and ambushed via a zipline deployed at your chosen spot. We hope that the introduction of the Zipline Gun will allow for a broader array of strategies and engagements in Rondo, ultimately enriching the game's meta with increased diversity.

  • The rewards for each consecutive win can only be earned once every 7 days, and your reward history and win streak will reset every Wednesday 12 AM (UTC).
  • Achieving a win streak and placing first in the same match will grant Perfect Match rewards.
    • Perfect Match reward is obtainable maximum three times per week.

Until this point, the primary objective has been securing that Chicken Dinner, yet in reality, only a select few players achieve this goal in each match. Introducing the Win Streak Showdown feature, we aim to provide the majority of players who don't clinch the Chicken Dinner with a fresh, rewarding new pursuit: the win streak. Pursue consecutive victories, enhance your skills and teamwork, and reap rewards, all while vying for the Chicken Dinner!

< Dev's Comment >

We launched Intense Battle Royale with the hope that it would live up to its name, offering an intense gameplay experience for Battle Royale enthusiasts. However, as time passed since its initial release and players grew familiar with each map, the intensity and randomness that makes Battle Royale so appealing seemed to fade. With this update, we're injecting a dose of randomness by incorporating random maps into Intense Battle Royale. This addition of unpredictability aims to revive the freshness of each gameplay session.
