The Flare gun a pistol type weapon in BATTLEGROUNDS.

Summary

The Flare gun is an extremely rare weapon that when fired, calls in a custom air drop that drops a larger amount of highly valuable equipment compared to the ordinary air drop. Once a flare is fired straight up into the air and reaches an altitude of 200 meters, a plane will soon fly over the map and drop off either a crate if the player is inside the safe zone, or a UAZ if outside. Firing a flare at a player causes no damage [1].

Update history

Pre-release #26
  • Added a new item, Flare Gun.
    • Flare Guns are now available in public matches and can be found as a rare item spawning in the world.
      • If you're lucky enough to find a Flare Gun, fire it directly into the air after the initial blue zone has closed to call in a special care package.
      • When firing the Flare Gun inside the current safe zone, you'll call in a special care package with lots of loot, or an armored UAZ when fired while outside the current safe zone.
    • Based on your feedback through our public Flare Gun tests, we've made changes to improve the gameplay experience with this item.
      • Flare Guns used in the early phase of the game often give a great advantage with little risk, therefore, the Flare Gun will only deliver a care package when used after the first blue zone phase.
      • A message will be shown on the UI when a nearby player successfully calls in a special care package with the Flare Gun and an icon indicating the location of the drop will be displayed on the map.
      • Calling in an armored UAZ will not display a message on the UI, or be indicated on the map.
    • The Flare Gun spawn rate is different on each map.
