What’s New:

Player Hideout

Step off the elevator and check out the CLASSIFIED PISTOL on your workbench. Take it for a spin in your three firing ranges – interior, upper exterior, or lower exterior – and really get a feel for it.

Then, step into the unlocked GARAGE for a glimpse into what’s possible. In the future, this is where you will use collected parts to customize your sweet rides. Yes, plural.

Proving Ground

The Proving Ground is a vertical arena outside the Tower that features both indoor and outdoor PvP. Here, you’ll get a feel for the core gameplay that will be central to DEADROP.

Stay on your toes as you explore a shipping hub, filtration center, communications relay area, and pathways in between. You are here for one purpose – loot and survive within the time limit. If someone happens to get in your way, well…


There are now 12 different types of weapons accessible (4 variants each of pistols, shotguns, and rifles) that are randomized and available for loot. These variations include unique rates of fire, recoils, bullet drop, and spreads. 

Player HUD

Your HUD displays health status, weapon status, extraction information, POI information, etc.

Health Stations

Visit a health station for a quick boost!

Collecting Items

This Snapshot introduces a handful of fun items to collect, including weapons, floppy discs, obelisks, and some interesting looking comics…hmmm… Collect items by examining containers and the Death Packs of fallen enemies.


After a certain amount of time in the current gameplay session, your HUD will display your specific extraction points. Get to one of these designated extraction points to return to your Hideout with all your loot.

Inventory & Stash

As you loot, these items will be moved to your inventory. If you successfully extract to the Player Hideout, that inventory can be moved to your personal Stash for safekeeping. If you get taken out, your gear becomes a Drop and is free for the taking.

You’ll be able to view (and can receive) stacks of items (e.g., 3 obelisks, 4 Pistol A’s, etc) and can either transfer “the Selected” or “All” items directly to your Stash.

If you choose NOT to extract, be the last one standing to receive…


This is where it gets really fun. 

If there’s a last player standing – whether all other players extracted, were killed, or died from accidental fall damage – that player will be awarded with the selection of items from the combination of the remaining loot.

When players get The Deadrop, they get to select one of two choices: [Take Selected] and [Take All]. 

Will you extract and play it safe, or put it all on the line?
