Arcade Mode: Revive Fives



Revive Fives is BACK in Arcade mode for the weekend, with the same rules as last time around - it's a regular Fives match, but you have the ability to pick your teammates back up once they're incapacitated. In true H1Z1 style though, a headshot is still a kill (so two-tap to your hearts content!).

Those who complete this additional challenge will be granted their Silver Victory Crate by the end of next week.

Today's update for H1Z1 on PC marks the end of Season One! Read on for more details on what's included in this patch:
  • Season One has now ended, and the off-season has begun. Season leaderboards and Top 10 scores will be locked, and matches will not be ranked during the off-season. Season Two is slated to kick off in July - stay tuned for more details on scoring changes as we get closer to the end of the off-season.
    • The reward grant for Season One will happen later this week, as we're confirming that players will be granted their items based on highest tier achieved.
  • While in Solos, Duos, and Fives matches, weapons will be locked for players whose ping or packet loss exceeds acceptable thresholds. This does not impact Arcade mode, Combat Training, or Hosted Games.
    • In regions where 150ms is the ping restriction, weapons will lock at 187ms.
    • In regions where 200ms is the ping restriction, weapons will lock at 248ms.
  • When spectating teammates, you can now open the map and are shown the gas timer and information. 
  • When the gas ring is showing in Spawn Selection in Fort Destiny, it will also show as soon as the game begins.
  • Preparation for this weekend's Arcade mode ruleset, Bullseye (featuring scoped weapons only).

All H1Z1 PC servers will be offline starting at 4PM PT on Wednesday, May 16 for an estimated 2 hour downtime to bring you updates on ping restrictions and more. Read on below for all the details:

Ping Restrictions

In order to maintain a fair and consistent gameplay experience in our competitive modes, connection quality restrictions now apply to all ranked matches. Players with a connection quality that fails to meet ping threshold requirements will be unable to join ranked matches (Solos, Duos, and Fives), even if they are able to connect to that region. For reference, ping requirements are 150ms for North America, South America, and Europe, and 200ms for Asia/Pacific and Australia.

All players can still join Arcade and Hosted Games, as well as Combat Training.

Quality of Life Changes & Bug Fixes
  • Pressing the "Escape" key now cancels channeled abilities (e.g. using a first aid kit).
  • Report Player functionality is now available on the match end screens.
  • Map borders no longer appear incorrectly in some resolutions.
  • Exit button now always appears correctly in the UI when spectating a teammate as the game ends.

Arcade Mode - Revive Fives!



This weekend, a brand new ruleset comes to the unranked Arcade mode - Revive Fives! These matches are just like Fives games with one big difference - a revive system has been enabled so you can pick back up your incapacitated teammates. If you're a fan of two-tapping your victims, not to worry - a headshot is still a kill (there's no coming back from that one!)

Revive Fives will be available in Arcade mode starting at 10AM PT on Friday, May 11.

Ready to drop into The Arena? This weekend in H1Z1 features a new unranked mode with a special ruleset, two BRAND NEW rewards, and a Crate Unlocking Sale - more details on each below!

Arcade Mode



H1Z1 is a highly competitive battle royale game, and we wanted to add an option for those who'd like to practice playing on the map without having their matches affect their Season rank. That's why we're introducing Arcade mode - this new option in the Play menu lets you jump straight into an unranked match!

Starting at 10AM PT on Friday, May 4, Arcade mode will unlock with a new special ruleset - HEAVY METAL:
  • Parachute into a Solos game with 100 players total
  • Rocket launchers, LMGs, and Makeshift Armor have been added to the loot table for maximum mayhem!
Plus, what would a weekend event be without rewards? Read on below for how you can pick up the Heavy Metal Backpack from Arcade mode and the Heavy Metal Makeshift Armor from regular Battle Royale Solos, Duos, or Fives.

Note: With the addition of Arcade mode, you may notice that Events have been removed from the Play menu. Our intention is to use Arcade mode as a way to bring you fun and unique rulesets with exclusive rewards in an unranked environment. Unlike Events which had designated match start times, Arcade mode matches can be started whenever the mode is unlocked for play.

Weekend Rewards


Heavy Metal Backpack

To celebrate the launch of our new Arcade mode, there's a matching Challenge just for this weekend! Get 5 Top 25 finishes in the new Arcade mode between 10AM PT on Friday, May 4 and 10AM PT on Monday, May 7 to receive the NEW Heavy Metal Backpack.
