Ranked – Season 18: Ranked Season 17 is entering its final stretch and players should remember to redeem their rewards based on their last Season 17 level, because Update 18.1 brings a new Ranked Season for players to jump into. When Ranked Season 18 launches, the Squad – FPP will no longer be available in the NA and EU regions due to a lack of players in the queue to keep it sustainable.

Item spawn balancing: Based on feedback about the difficulty of finding healing items in normal Erangel and Miramar games, the team identified that the drop rate of healing items decreased slightly in normal Erangel games due to increased drop rates of weapons and accessories.

On the other hand, normal Miramar games did not experience a decrease in the drop rate of healing items, but the gameplay changed aggressively due to the increased chance of finding more weapons and attachments, and therefore the demand for healing items increased naturally.

To address these changes, the total number of items and drop rates will be increased when Update 18.1 is released. Visit the patch notes for the full breakdown of changes made to item spawns.
