While The Cube Queen’s wrath continues to erupt, changes on the Island continue to unfold. Here’s what’s new in v18.30 in Battle Royale:


War Effort: Boogie Bomb vs. Combat Shotgun

The war effort has two classics on deck to fight back against the Cubes, and this time we’re getting up close and personal. Choose to unvault the Boogie Bomb and send your foes into a dancing frenzy or blast ‘em back with the Combat Shotgun!
