This Week’s PUBG Event Mode is a Grenades-Only Deathmatch Called “Dodgebomb”

Oh, there will also be frying pans of course.

This week’s PUBG Event Mode is called “Dodgebomb”, and sees three, 10-person teams drop onto the battlefield armed with level-3 gear, grenades, and a frying pan. It’s a first to 100 points deathmatch with respawns enabled.

The mode is the latest in a series of event modes that have been regularly added into PUBG. Each one sets different parameters and restrictions on play, often stripping out certain classes of weapons. Dodgebomb is the craziest yet, offering an explosive-filled take on the classic PUBG War Mode.

PC players will be able to jump into Dodgebomb on August 9 at 7PM PST, right up until August 12 at 7PM PST. We’ve listed some additional info on the mode below:

  • Dodgebomb is a War Mode event
