Close Encounters is a fan-favorite LTM that only allows players to use Shotguns. Usually, players spawn with a Jetpack, and the storm circle will move faster. This LTM is designed for high-octane, close-range fights and is best suited for players comfortable with Shotguns. It is recommended that players practice a few rounds in 1v1 modes to improve Shotgun precision and timing.
