Ricochet was a brand new gametype introduced on August 20th with the Champions Bundle. For two weeks, it was exclusive to those who purchased the bundle. Now that those two weeks are up, the gametype will be getting its own playlist with multiple maps. Which maps exactly? Those can be found below.
In an effort to consolidate the playlists for a more optimal matchmaking experience, Legendary BRs is being added to Infinity Slayer. With the introduction of this gametype, the Legendary Slayer playlist is being removed entirely. Legendary BRs will always be available as the THIRD voting slot in the playlist.
The settings used in this gametype will be similar to the Global Championship playlist from a few weeks back (BR Primary, AR Secondary) but optimized for team gameplay.
Also, a new gametype will be added called Team Slayer. In this gametype, players will still have complete customization over their loadouts, but elements such as random and personal ordnance will be disabled. Initial ordnance will still be enabled on resupply timers and the motion tracker will be enabled too!
This gametype will replace Slayer Pro and become the second voting option in Infinity Slayer. The voting options will be similar to what is shown below.
| SLOT 1 – Infinity Slayer | SLOT 2 – Team Slayer | SLOT 3 – Legendary BRs |
