Air Royale is a Battle Royale Limited Time Mode (LTM) where players fights in an X4 Stormwing while destroying opponents planes. Players cannot land on the ground, as they will instantly die.

LTM Rules and Gameplay

Due to this being a Duos mode, Profile Stats are tracked. Daily & Weekly challenges also work, with the exception of the Squad and Solo-based challenges. The Air Royale Challenges are used in this gamemode. Challenges invloving the collection of Ammo Crates and Chests also don't work.

  • There is no outline for a bus path, as there is no bus.
  • The storm circles are larger than usual for warfare between the planes.
  • Unlike normal gamemodes, the storm has an exclusive ceiling that gradually lowers the X-4 Stormwing’s health during the match.
  • The storm circles are very quick.
  • The storm harms the X4 Stormwing, but not the players

  • Every player spawns with a Common Pistol, Common Suppressed Submachine Gun , and Common Burst Assault Rifle. Those weapons can be further upgraded up to Legendary
    • Five Different Pistols
    • Three different SMGs and Two Machine Guns

  • Each plane has 3 lives, players will respawn until they lose their plane's last life.
  • Parking a plane on the ground for more than a few seconds will cause it to explode. Hijacking another team's plane will add that plane to your existing number of plane lives (and cost the team who lost the plane a life).
  • There are no chests in this game, so Loot rings appear in Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary variants.
  • To receive the contents of a Chest, simply fly through it.
  • If players receive loot from a Chest containing a weapon they already have that's of the same or worse quality, they’ll receive additional ammo.
  • X4 Planes can destroy anything in its path once again when boosted, but will take damage doing so.
  • Chests with higher quality guns will automatically replace the lower quality weapon that’s being carried.
  • A special pink ring heal damaged planes and grant health & shields to players when flown through them.
  • Burst Assault Rifles and the Rare Pistol make an appearance. The New Infantry Rifles also are featured in this gamemode.
  • Planes have six different attacks depending on the type of ring flown through. The special attacks are limited:
    • Normal Attack. Deals 40 damage.
    • Grenade Launcher. Found from Common Loot Rings.
    • Rocket Launcher. Found from Uncommon Loot Rings.
    • Ice Blast. Found from Rare Loot Rings. Ice Blasts slow down an X4 Stormwing when hit.
    • Poison Laser. Found from Epic Loot Rings. Poison Lasers poison the X4 Stormwing, causing it to take overtime damage.
    • Fiery Laser. Found from Legendary Loot Rings. Fiery Lasers do the same as the Poison Lasers, except powerful to one-shot an enemy and the overtime damage lasts a lot longer.
