PlayerUnknowns Battlegrounds gives special events special events – limited game modes with special weapons and squad rules. The last event, which was started yesterday, adds a special flare gun to call for supply drops. It's a good idea, but the execution is too timid.
After Fortnite Battle Royale 's Timed Events Model, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has begun to add its own special game types. The first increased the assault rate of assault rifles and grouped teams in eight-man squads. The result left much to be desired – the fights were great, but it did not feel like a event . The latest game type displays the map with flare guns that can summon Airdrop's full armor and weapons. The idea seems to be to let players fight for a bloodier game mode via flares and drops. While that happens sometimes, the meager supply of flare guns prevents things from getting really exciting.
The event takes place on the desert map of Miramar's game and can only be played with four-person squads. Miramar is the less popular of Battlegrounds & two cards, with plenty of free space that makes the transition from one point to another extremely dangerous. Even after updates to the map have added more houses to share the empty space, you are often exposed. The open areas make it easier to see where the supply burglaries will occur, and therefore shooting a flare gun is a risky affair. The gun is loud, the torch can be seen from a great distance and the supply box drops slowly. Occasionally all the pieces come together – the torches, the rare weapon drops, the squads that close – and the event mode creates an outbreak of action.
Unfortunately, torches only spawn within the map-story building. This inhibits the game mode. You can play multiple matches without anyone finding a flare gun. Whether through technical constraints or a conscious decision to keep the pace slow, Battlegrounds misses the opportunity to create a match with a unique identity or feel. Instead of racy competitions, where the skies fly over and rare weapons abound, it often feels like you're just playing a normal squad match.
Major risks would be  battlefields  event modes. At the moment, more exciting modes are playing on private servers – cowboy modes with only guns and shotguns, car racing with grenades and Molotovs. While the game's deliberate pace helps separate it from Fortnite Battle Royale event modes are a chance to be more adventurous. Hopefully, future events will be more interesting.
