Currently only five active maps in multiplayer with an extra remastered one.


Air drops with supplies will come down during the match. Only go for it if it looks clear. People will go for this.

Call Outs

If you’re playing squads call outs are quite helpful.

  • Over here.
  • Here is blah blah.
  • Need backup.
  • Sorry.
  • Yes/no.


Press ‘I’ or ‘Tab’ to bring up the inventory page.


Police vest and helmet provide bullet reduction depending on the level. Make sure to look around for these.

Here you can all items that you have picked up during the match.


A backpack must be found to hold more items during the match. Max level is three and if you don’t have one you can only hold few things.

Training Mode

Found in the menu the training mode lets you use every gun and every vehicle in the game.

Shooting Range

Shoot at moving targets for practice. Differnt types of these.

Every Vehicle

Grab any car or vehicle you desire for practice.

The Match

When joining a public match you’ll more than likely be in the starting lobby waiting for other players to join so it reaches 100. Here you can plan your destination on the map and jump around punching people during the mean time.

The Plane

Once the counter is done you’ll spawn in a plane and begin your flight over the map. Pick a spot and press ‘F’ to jump from the plane.

Proceed to parachute towards the area you picked. Your parachute will auto open if you don’t press ‘F’.


Once you land run and grab a weapon as fast as possible as you don’t know who else landed here. Loot will be everywhere during you match.

The End

Around the final 10 players the zone will be tiny and it will be a shoot fest so take cover.


Your team mates can be revived if they’re knocked but not dead. They can also mark the map.

Keep them alive because it’s easier for the win. They can share loot. They can use a microphone aswell.

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.
