With the promise of a new Event Mode every weekend still standing, Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has revealed the offering for this weekend. The event mode for this weekend is known as “Tequila Sunrise” and it will involve players just using shotguns and melee weapons to eliminate the enemies and win that Chicken Dinner.
Like last week, Bluehole has again made this event mode for four-person squads which means there is no solo or duo mode. Players who find matches with fewer than four players will be matched with other random players to make it a full four-person team. The drop rates for level 3 armor have been increased as well, so we can expect some drawn-out fights.
The Event Mode will run for 72 hours, starting from 7.30 AM IST on April 6 to 7.30 AM IST on April 9. Here’s all you need to know about “Tequila Sunrise” in the words of the developers themselves.
