PUBG's Faction Warmode is now live in Labs. The mode offers the players a chance to form their own 8 person party, pick a spawn kit and drop into a game on Sanhok.

Faction Warmode is now live on PUBG Labs with a small twist: you are able to form your own 8 person party before entering.

Faction Warmode is a team vs team (8v8) match that takes place on Sanhok. When your party spawns, you're able to choose from one of several different "Spawn Kits" each with its own load-out. From there, it's a matter of scoring as many points as you can, within the confines of a small safe zone.
