PUBG adds new Ghillie Crossing mode

We goin' in all sneaky beaky like?

A new event mode has been added to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds called Ghillie Crossing. In the new game mode, all guns and vehicles have been removed from PUBG and replaced with melee weapons and crossbows. Other items that will be available in Ghillie Crossing include health items, attachments, grenades, and true to its name, Ghillie Suits.

The inclusion of Ghillie Suits as regular loot is notable, as it gives players the opportunity to play the game with a stealth focus in mind. According to the official announcement post for Ghillie Crossing on Steam, the mode will take place on the Erangel map with “sunny” weather as a permanent setting. Below, you’ll find the full event schedule and rules for Ghillie Crossing.
