Season 4 Guide + Full Patch Notes
6 New Arcade Modes, Season Rewards, Third Person ADS in all modes, and the new Vixen Set Crate highlight our Season 4 game update!
Welcome to Season 4 of H1Z1 on PS4!
This massive game update features a major content drop, the introduction of the Third Person ADS aiming mechanic to all game modes, a new Season Rewards system, Set Crates that offer full outfits in place of individual items, and a number of other community-requested updates and bug fixes. Read on for a quick summary of each new feature, along with full Season 4 patch notes.
Starting this Season, Battle Pass and Daily Attendence Rewards have been replaced by Season Rewards! As with prior Battle Passes, the new Season Rewards system features 100 tiers that can be unlocked across both Free and Premium lines by completing challenges throughout Season 4.

New arcade mode schedule
Season 4 features a dramatic expansion of our Arcade Event system, starting with the introduction of 6 new Arcade Modes! Check out our Season 4 Arcade Mode Schedule for a full preview of each new mode. Additional modes will make their debut throughout the Season, so check back frequently for the updated Arcade schedule!
Third person ADS
On top of adding a whopping 6 new Arcade Modes for more playable content than ever before, we're making a massive update to H1Z1's core gameplay by introducing the new Third Person ADS mechanic to ALL game modes. Previously only available through a limited-time Arcade Mode, wemade a number of community-requested improvements to the new mechanic, including adding new sensitivity sliders, and reducing recoil bloom so that First and Third Person ADS behave consistently across all weapons. We'll continue to tune and refine the new mechanic, but it was important to us to have it ready for all of our players in all modes at the start of Season 4.
New vixen set crate
Another MAJOR design change in Season 4 is the introduction of Set Crates! Starting with the new Vixen Set Crate, Set Crates guarantee FULL OUTFITS at purchase, versus traditional Crates that feature individual items. Each Set Crate offers different variants and outfit combinations - here's a snapshot of how it works:
The base tier Vixen Set Crate (500 Crowns) guarantees the white Vixen Set, while each increasing tier introduces new items to the Set - the mask comes with the Yellow Vixen Set (1000 Crowns), Armor and Backpack are added in the Red and Purple Vixen Sets (2500 Crowns), while the Premium Black Vixen Set will tops it off with the exclusive Vixen Helmet!
Also new this season are Locked Crates, which can be earned periodically just by playing matches, and unlocked at half the price of a traditional crate for a new item.
Season 3 rank rewards
Previously detailed in our Season 4 preview, Season 3 Ranked Rewards have been added to the game and will be granted to all players who earned them later this week!
Those aren't the only items new to Season 3 - earn Master Crates and keep eyes on the Marketplace for a chance to earn or purchase the new Warmonger, Dragon, Black Sandstorm, and Red Warden outfits!
