Gun Gale Online's Championship Battle Royale, The Third Bullet of Bullets Location: ISL Ragnarok MapEdit
The island that serves as the map for the final match of the third Bullet of Bullets tournament in the VRMMO Gun Gale Online. In this battle royale finish, the thirty gunners who won their preliminary rounds face off all at once on the same map. The last surviving player becomes the champion.
The setting of the fight is ISL Ragnarok, a circular island measuring ten kilometers across. It has a composite environment with mountains, forests, and deserts, with the player avatars being placed randomly somewhere on the island at the start.
All players are automatically given an item called a Satellite Scan Terminal. Every fifteen minutes, an overhead satellite passes over the island, capturing the coordinates of all players and sending them to all terminals. In other words, fifteen minutes is the maximum amount of time to effectively camp out for an ambush.
In the center of the map is the ruin of a city from a once-flourishing civilization. A large river dissects the southern half of the map, over which lies a steel bridge. There are forests in the southeast, plains in the west, rural settlements in the east, and deserts in the north. Aside from sand, the desert also features rock formations and caves.
