Welcome to Preseason 6!
New tier thresholds, new rewards, and more!
The Combat Update on August 29th marks the start of Preseason 6! Read on for a recap of Preseason 5, a look at what’s new in Preseason 6, and the rewards you can earn for Solos, Duos, and Fives!
Preseason 5 Wrap-Up
Preseason 5 introduced the Master tier, which was meant to smooth out the distribution of players between Diamond and Royalty. At a glance, here’s how Preseason 5 wound up:
It’s pretty apparent we missed the mark a bit on Master tier, so Preseason 6 scoring has been adjusted accordingly to even out the curve.
In addition, we definitely heard your feedback on Royalty feeling like it was too easy to achieve (especially in Duos and Fives), so we’ve adjusted the barrier to entry this Preseason – more on the new tier thresholds below!
What’s New in Preseason 6
Division calculations, kill scoring, and placement scoring will all be the same in Preseason 6 as they were in Preseason 5. If you’d like to review those details, visit the Preseason 5 article here!
As mentioned above, we’ve adjusted tier thresholds in Preseason 6 not only to flatten out the curve between Diamond, Master, and Royalty, but also to address that Royalty seemed too easy to achieve. Here’s what you’ll need in order to achieve each tier in Preseason 6:
|Tier||Solo Score Threshold||Duos Score Threshold||Fives Score Threshold|
For Solos, Master 1 will now require 10 wins with 5 kills each (this was the minimum to hit Royalty 5 in Preseason 5). You’ll need to put in a lot of effort during Preseason 6 to make the jump from Master 1 to Royalty 5, as Royalty 5 now requires 10 wins with 11 kills each. Royalty 1 will maintain its elite status, requiring you to achieve 10 wins with 15 kills each.
Tribute Makeshift Armor
Royalty Makeshift Armor
We’re expanding the Tribute collection again in Preseason 6 with the new Tribute Makeshift Armor and Royalty Makeshift Armor! Finish Gold or above in any mode (Solos, Duos, or Fives), and you’ll receive these rewards. You’ll only need to rank in ONE mode in order to be eligible for the Makeshift Armor, and you won’t earn multiple Armors for qualifying in multiple modes. However, you WILL receive Scrap rewards from each mode based on your placement. That means that while you’ll only receive one instance of a Makeshift Armor skin that you qualify for, you’ll receive the Scrap payouts of each Tier across modes.
- Finish in Gold through Master in any mode and receive the Tribute Makeshift Armor at the end of Preseason 6!
- Finish in Royalty in any mode and receive the Tribute Makeshift Armor AND the Royalty Makeshift Armor at the end of Preseason 6!
- Finish in any tier in any mode and receive the below amount of Scrap at the end of Preseason 6! As highlighted above, if you rank in multiple tiers in multiple modes by the end of this Preseason, you’ll earn the Scrap for each mode you played in (but not multiple Makeshift Armors).
|Gold||50 Scrap, Tribute Makeshift Armor|
|Platinum||100 Scrap, Tribute Makeshift Armor|
|Diamond||200 Scrap, Tribute Makeshift Armor|
|Master||325 Scrap, Tribute Makeshift Armor|
500 Scrap, Tribute Makeshift Armor,
