New Features/Updates (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

Ghosted to Player

Ghosted to Player is a new option on the Wasted screen that appears under the following criteria:

  • Player X kills you 3 times within 5 minutes.
  • You have not damaged Player X during those 3 kills.

This option can be found alongside the Respawn, Passive and One on One Deathmatch options and is triggered via R1/RB and displays as “Go Ghosted to Player X”. Once this option has been selected, you and Player X will be ghosted to each other and each other only for two minutes.

Contact Mission Unlock Update

The Contact Mission unlock system has been updated. Players now have two ways in which Contact Missions can be unlocked to allow for direct launching from the start menu:

  • Reach the requisite rank for the Mission (This unlocks the Mission for that character slot only).
