Tequila sunrise brings limited-time melee and shotguns event to PUBG tonight

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at henry.stenhouse@allgamers.com or catch him on Twitter, here.

Our two favorite things in life.

PUBG's next limited-time event begins tonight, and it's all about those shotguns.

Tequila sunrise will run for 72 hours starting at 7pm PT. In it you'll only have access to the game's shotguns and melee weapons on the Miramar map in up to four man squads. 

First and third person will be available on NA, EU and AS servers, with an adjusted playzone time and size to force players into a tighter arena. To make up for the reduction of weapon types, both shotguns and melee weapons have had their spawn rate tripled, along with ammo, level 3 armor and helmets. As you might expect, the time of day has also been locked to sunrise.

The full details are available in the steam community update post.

Additionally, a team deathmatch mode titled War has been added to PUBG's custom game options. This new mode has no details listed yet, but allows players to engage in 8-player squad deathmatch games on small areas of the map. Players respawn on wave timers, with those returning to life dropped down from a cargo plane overhead every 30 seconds.
