The Ring

Jump to: navigation, search

The Ring (otherwise known as The Circle, The Forcefield, or the Modified Containment Ring) is a frequently shrinking circular zone, outside of which players will take constant damage. As the game progresses in Rounds, the ring will deal more damage and shrink to smaller and smaller sizes until the whole map is enveloped. The damage dealt is significantly increased in Elite Queue.

The Ring was built by Wattson and her father. Pathfinder's passive ability, Insider Knowledge, shows his team where the next round's ring will be when he interacts with a Survey Beacon.
