Each game modes (Solo, Duo, Squad, etc) will be matched independently (For example, Duos cannot be matched with Solo queue). For these game modes, they consist of 1st person only & 3rd person (w/ 1st person optional) servers.

Click your preference of ranked/unranked, choose your server region then choose a game mode you want to play of which 1st only or 3rd person.

Ranked[edit | edit source]

Throughout Early Access, players are being put in a ELO ranked category with other players in that score category. You play ranked to raise up within the leaderboards to see who has the highest total ELO, concurrent wins in a session and/or the highest kills during a match.

For questions regarding ranked servers, head to the FAQ.

Unranked[edit | edit source]

As of now, unranked is not in the current build, it's coming at a later date. Unranked are mostly for players who want to learn the game or fool around without losing your ELO ranking in ranked servers.

Current modes[edit | edit source]

Solo[edit | edit source]

The classic game mode. Complete free for all, kill everyone, be the last one alive.

Squad is a gameplay type where players are organized into teams which are then pitted against each other. This is distinct from the classic Free For All (FFA) gameplay mode, where players are free to kill whomever they wish.

SQUAD, a game mode where you can team up in groups of 2, 3 or 4 players, or if you prefer, you can still play solo and take on everyone alone in the match.

Possible future modes[edit | edit source]

5 vs 5[edit | edit source]

In a interview, they stated that this game mode was a 'possibility' that it was coming. The game mode takes place on a smaller portion of the map where two 5 player teams battle it out.

ETA: N/A - Coming Soon? | This game mode is a possibility to have.

Note: Since it's an unofficial gamemode, Bluehole at any point can scrap this for another game mode.

Street Fight[edit | edit source]

Street Fight, a game mode from ARMA 3 BR which is based in cities and it’s just with pistols and SMG's, with air drops containing assault rifles. You can take more damage, and it’s just a little more brutal and close quarters than Battle Royale.

ETA: N/A - Coming Soon? | This game mode is a possibility to have.[1]

Note: Since it's an unofficial gamemode, Bluehole at any point can scrap this for another game mode.

War[edit | edit source]

War, a game mode from ARMA 3 BR that has a deathmatch style where players kill each other for 30 minutes (if you die, you respawn back in with a parachute) and then at the end once the blue zone locks in, you can't respawn anymore. After the blue zone locks, it will end normally in a BR ending with the circles, bombing runs and air drops.

ETA: N/A - Coming Soon | This game mode isn't on high priority to release (probably after Early Access). PLAYERUNKNOWN stated in interviews that this is a game mode he wants to implement into PUBG.[2][3][4]
