  • Competitors may not use any game-changing scripts or programs. 
  • Competitors may not leave the normal boundaries of a map in a way that does not activate an “out-of-bounds” timer or other exploit that results in the Competitor being able to remain outside of the circle (in the orange) without taking damage. 
  • Competitors may not exploit a game mechanic to enter and exit the 30-second “out-of-bounds” kill timer consecutively in the same area. o Examples of this include repeatedly using a zipline, grapple, portal, balloon, or other character ability to repeatedly enter the same area that activates the “out-of-bounds” timer.

  • Competitors may not fire their weapon while reviving another player. 
  • Competitors may not exploit a Legend’s ability in order to gain an unintended competitive advantage, including any exploit that may reduce the cooldown of a Legend’s Tactical or Ultimate abilities. Examples of these exploits include: 
    • Using Mirage’s Vanishing Act to enter the Downed state with the ability to fire a weapon. 
    • Using Wraith’s Dimensional Rift & Void in combination to reduce the cooldown of Void after respawning. 
    • Using Wraith’s Dimensional Rift to portal inside map geometry. 
    • Using any exploit, bug, and/or glitch to reduce the cooldown on a Legend’s ultimate or tactical abilities.
