The Rebirth Island Reinforced Event Update
The Rebirth Island Reinforced Event also brings new updated locations.
Stronghold: We say bye to Security and welcome Stronghold, updates are two new structures that could shake up the island’s meta.
Prison Yard: Head to the main Prison Yard to see some updates, which can be used as a cover or as platforms for jumping onto the guard wall walkways.
Docks: Supply Ships Drop Anchor at the Docks, Fight from these areas by climbing up to the ship’s accommodation or by taking a risky ascent to more exposed higher ground, which could offer better sightlines to adjacent areas on the Docks
Redeploy Balloons: Those looking for height across the island can find that Caldera’s Redeploy Balloons made their way to select spots around Rebirth Island. They are functionally similar, albeit with a shorter ascender cable to properly balance how much ground one can cover with them across the island.

While you wait for the game to start, you can practice your aim on fellow players. Kills in lobby award XP and Weapon XP, so practice often. You will automatically redeploy if you are killed in the lobby. Get that XP or just relax and prepare for the real fight.
The map is your guide to survival, showing us the location and path of the gas and also showing us enemy locations, squad locations, vehicles, buy stations, contracts, loadout drops, enemy killstreaks, and even the name of each area. When items get pinged, they will show in large on the map. On the right of the map, you will see the full legend to help understand the locations of items. On the left, you will see the timer for the next or current circle collapse.
Looting is what provides you with the tools needed to kill your enemies and lead you to victory. You will find items in every location of the map, these items include weapons, ammo, cash ranging up to piles of $1200, armor plates, armor satchel that allows you to carry extra plates, field upgrades, equipment including a heartbeat sensor, contracts, medkits, gas masks and also loot boxes. The boxes can be found in different colors with a new orange box that can be reopened after some time being the best, and the best items are located in the boxes and range up to fully loaded weapons to killstreaks. You can also kill one of the many enemies and take their loot!
The circle collapse is a poison gas that slowly infiltrates the map, shrinking the battlefield in random locations and damaging all in its path. To survive, players must avoid the gas or find and equip a Gas Mask that only gives an extra 12 seconds of survival time in the gas. Warzone has the fastest killing circle collapse to date in any Battle Royal game.
You don’t need to rely on your parachute or your own two feet to travel around Warzone; you can use one of the many vehicles, just know that all of them will expose your position to the enemy with the loud noise of the engine and a red vehicle seen on the mini-map. Rebirth Island comes with a new feature to the helicopter, mounted machine guns! The map also features a Gondola that will take players to the top of the prison and back down.
Pings allow players to instantly share object location, mark key points, and warn teammates. Players can ping all loot items, boxes, vehicles, desired location, and enemy locations. Pinging enemy locations or trucks will mark the location in red along with your team hearing your character scream enemies nearby. Every Ping is followed by the player’s character talking about the type of Ping.
Buy Stations are seen everywhere around the map, and at times they can be a place that you will find enemy players, sometimes making it hard to get the goods you need.
