Weekend Events: Double XP, Auto Royale at Night, and Shotties & Snipers!

This weekend is chock-full of goodies in H1Z1, as we're bringing you Double XP, a nighttime version of Auto Royale, and the return of the fan-favorite event Shotties & Snipers! Here's a quick breakdown of each:

Double XP
We've turned on Double XP just for this weekend, from now until Monday, March 19 @ 10AM PT! Double the XP means faster leveling, which means MORE REWARDS - remember, with each level you gain you earn two Victory Crates.

Auto Royale at Night
We're trying something a little different with Auto Royale this weekend: all matches will be kicking off around dusk and getting darker as the match progresses! If you'd like to turn on your headlights, the default keybinding is G (beware - this could be a dead giveaway to your foes!)

Shotties & Snipers
The Shotties & Snipers event returns for the weekend with a matching Challenge and Skull rewards to boot! You can read more on that here.

Game Update: March 15

Live servers will be coming down at 8PM PT tonight for an update that includes Shotties & Snipers for the weekend, the retirement of some classic Skull Store items, the animated update to the 2018 Showdown Participant AR, and some additional fixes. The downtime should be approximately 3 hours - full patch notes below!
  • Retired the below items from the Skull Store
  • Brightened non-drivable vehicles and several warehouses in The Arena in order to help with visibility and target acquisition.
  • Players are no longer able to switch seats in Auto Royale until all teammates have loaded in. This prevents a few bugs that occurred as a result of this behavior.
  • Royalty icons are no longer incorrectly shown in the UI after playing ten games of Auto Royale.
  • North America no longer takes longer to load into Region Select than other regions.
  • Fixed several UI bugs in the spectate camera and versus panel for Hosted Games.
  • No longer auto-opening the Spawn Selection panel when entering the box. This should help resolve the stuck cursor issue.
  • Added the Shotties & Snipers event for the weekend.
  • 2018 Showdown Participant AR Skin is now animated.
