LTM Straight Shot explained

Straight Shot is the new limited-time mode introduced for the Anniversary Event. This mode is similar to Trios but streamlines the process for a much quicker experience.

To begin, there is no Jumpmaster. You and your team will spawn above a random POI and drop in. There will be two teams at each POI, which you can choose to engage with or run. There are a total of 30 players in the Lobby for a quicker game.

Once the match begins, the ring will focus on a smaller radius, making it harder to avoid other teams. The ring will continually focus in smaller at a faster rate.

Weapons will spawn kitted at different rarities. There will be more drops for more loot, as well, making it quicker to get good gear.

It’s up to you and your squad how you want to tackle the LTM, although it’s recommended to move fast and take down enemies quickly. This will put you in a much better position to win the game, as well as earn the rewards from the event quicker.

No waiting for requeue

In addition to a much faster game experience, the LTM Straight Shot also allows for a quicker death experience. You can requeue for a game with your party directly from the death screen.
