Bunkers are scattered throughout Urzikstan, and upon acquiring the keycard access, players will gain entry to an expanded interior area, where they can explore to find high-level loot and additional intel regarding a specific location that has not yet been revealed.

Secondary bunker exits will become active, providing multiple exit options for squads, and ensuring balanced battle scenarios where no squad can gain or exploit exit advantages.

In this Buy Back Royale Solos mode, there will be no Gulag. Instead, players must collect cash to respawn after dying, with a portion of their collected cash reserves being deducted upon redeployment. Multiple redeployments are available until the final moments of a match, approximately the same duration as when Gulag closes in regular Battle Royale matches.

Note: While the blog mentions that additional modes will be introduced in-season, precise details are currently unavailable as all information has been redacted.
