PRIME SHOTGUN: PRIMED AND READY

It’s prime time.

With the new Prime Shotgun, deal the most damage with the first shot of the clip — no warm-up required! Though not as powerful as the first, the remaining three shots offer a consistent damage rate across all three shots. Of course, you can keep track of how many shots remain with the on-screen ammo counter, but you can also keep track with the shotgun’s light display.

Want to deliver only heavy hitters? You can reload after the first shot, but if you need to deliver a fast follow-up, the other three shots have your back. The Prime Shotgun can be found from the ground, Chests, Supply Drops, Reality Saplings, fishing, and sharks.

Creative Update

HUB CHANGES

In case you missed it, in v21.20 we introduced a new Hub layout that focuses on giving you a place to showcase the community’s artistic skills. To accomplish this, we have removed matchmaking portals and featured rifts. Instead, up to 8 Golden Rifts will be available to creator groups in the hub (one for each person in your party). There is also one Creator Showcase map selected by the Hub creator. You can also continue playing in private parties by using the Matchmaking Portal Console for the Creator Showcase map.

PLAYER MARKER

With the Player Marker device, you can create a marker that will display information about a player on their nameplate, specifically their Health, Shield, resources, and how far away they are on the island. You can also add an icon and customized text to your marker. Markers are visible on both the main map and the mini-map.

Note: The Player Marker is not visible unless a player has a nameplate attached to their player. If you don’t see the additional information when testing your island, make sure you have nameplates turned on. You can do that by going to My Island > Settings and scroll down to the Always Show Nameplates setting. Set it to Always Show to All or Always Show to Team.

BATTLE ROYALE ITEM: PRIME SHOTGUN

The Prime Shotgun is a unique shotgun that rewards players who frequently reload. This shotgun deals bonus damage when firing with a full clip! Reload that first round over and over to maximize your damage.

NEW PROP GALLERIES

With the new Waterfall Gallery, you can add waterfalls to your islands! Plus, the new Cuddle Tree Prop Gallery gives you options to create an interesting Cuddle Team-themed area.

WATERFALL GALLERY

Waterfalls are finally here! You have a selection of waterfall shapes and sizes to place on your islands.

CUDDLE TREE PROP GALLERY

Make your island into a Cuddle Team haven with the Cuddle Tree.

UI CHANGES AND OTHER FEATURES

The Tracker device now supports new Quest Icon and Color options! The objectives displayed in the HUD have a new visual style too. Choose from hundreds of icons to find just the right image for your quests, and make each quest banner a different color to help players easily identify them.
