The Revive System is particular to Team Play in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

  • In two-player team mode, once players' HP reaches 0, their character will enter DBNO (Down But Not Out) state
  • While in DBNO state, a character won’t be able to fire weapons or use items.
  • While in DBNO state, a character can only crawl and drop items.
  • When in DBNO state, a character’s revive time will gradually decrease. When revive time reaches zero, the character will die and cannot be revived for the rest of the match
    • The timer will not decrease if a teammate is attempting to revive a player.
  • When a teammate enters DBNO state, the teammate icon on the HUD will change to indicate that the teammate needs help
  • If a character enters DBNO state while their teammate is either dead or also already in a DBNO state, the character will instantly die.
  • When a teammate is in DBNO state, players can revive them by nearing them and interacting with the character using the “F” key
    • The reviving time icon will be visible to both the reviver and the revivee.
  • It is possible for a character to enter DNBO state multiple times in a single match, but it will cause revive time to decrease at a faster rate for every subsequent time.
  • Players were caught in a vehicle explosion while inside the vehicle or were underwater for too long will die without entering DBNO state, even when there is another teammate still alive.
