In this partnership, Tesla will open Gigafactory in four fixed locations in the map. Gamers will be able to enter these Gigafactory and see the production of the Tesla Model Y. They can even drive in the new car and experience the autopilot feature of the Tesla vehicles. As per the company, a self-driving Tesla Semi will also be seen on the specific routes.

In addition to the new mode, the classic mode has also received a new weapon called the MG3.

It will now appear on the map for loot.
Krafton has introduced another a new feature that will allow gamers to “toss medical items to squad-mates in those clutch situations”. As per the company, “For the first time, gyroscope sensitivity can be changed, Third Person Perspective (TPP) camera angles can be tuned, and ammo indicators allow for more finesse in strategy.”
