Throughout the challenges, Neymar Jr. will be able to show off his soccer skills to potentially turn the tide of the duels he encounters.

Squad of Neymar Jr. vs All: Defense of the inn

The first challenge will be Neymar Jr.’s squad against everyone and Neymar Jr.’s objective will be to defend the point of interest (POI) of the inn in Deston. The challenge will be played on TPP with Neymar Jr.’s squad against seven other squads of PUBG partner players. Neymar Jr.’s squad will only be able to loot the inn’s POI and the objective is simple: defend the inn with at least one of the squad members alive. The challenge will last two games and these are the rules:

  • Neymar Jr. and his squad will only be able to loot the inn.
  • All other streamer partners will be allowed to loot anywhere else in Deston.
  • The only weapons allowed will be – 1) Punch, 2) Crossbow and 3) Pistols.
  • You will have complete freedom to use tactical gear, as well as health and boost items.
  • The blue area will be modified to focus on the inn.
  • There will be a face-to-face activity with a goal that Neymar Jr. can use to spawn wanted weapons/items on the map.


The second and final challenge will incorporate the regular battle royale format from PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS battle royale – but with a twist. Neymar Jr.’s squad and seven other PUBG partner squads will drop in Deston with these rules triggered by a match:

  • Only Tier 1 gear (Helmet/Backpack/Vest) will spawn in Deston.
  • There will be a face-to-face activity with a goal that Neymar Jr. can use to get weapons or to put other PUBG partner squads at a disadvantage (the weapons/items that can or cannot be used).
