Toxic Gas is an in-game mechanic that forces all players into a designated safe-zone on the map. The location of the safe-zone is revealed 2 minutes after the match begins. 5 minutes after the Safe Zone is revealed on the map, the first wave of Toxic Gas will begin to move towards the outer rim of the Safe Zone. It takes approximately 5 additional minutes for the first wave of Toxic Gas to reach the first safe zone.

Being inside the Toxic Gas will damage your character over time and also cause your Toxicity levels to rise. Toxicity is indicated above your Health Bar with a separate Neon Green Bar and will only reveal itself if you’re in the gas for at least one tick of damage. Toxicity starts from 0 and progressively raises to the maximum of 100. Every 1 second you’re in the gas, you gain 1 Toxicity. At 100 Toxicity your character will begin to take DOUBLE damage from all gas sources.
