The Getaway is a Battle Royale Limited Time Mode (LTM) which features an objective race gameplay wherein the main goal is to find a Jewel and take it to a Getaway Van.

The Getaway returned during Summer Splash.


LTM Rules and Gameplay

  • The goal is to find or steal a Jewel and take it to one of the vans in order to secure a Victory Royale.
  • Up to 4 players can earn a Victory Royale in the LTM.
  • Once they arrive, safe drops and Getaway Vans will be visible on the map at all times.
  • Profile Stats (K/D & Wins) are tracked in this mode, but Umbrellas are not awarded for wins.

Jewels

  • Can be found in special supply drop safes, located along the edge of the first storm circle. The safes take a long time to open, so make sure the area is clear before attempting to claim a Jewel!
  • Four Jewels will be in play on the map at all times. If a player escapes with a Jewel or one is lost in the storm, a new supply drop will bring a replacement.
  • When a Jewel is picked up, it will be visible on the map to everyone for 30 seconds.
  • Carrying a Jewel will give players health & shields over time, but also slow them down by 10%.
