With a new season now underway, it’s time to take a quick look at what happened in Season 7. Here are some of the figures that should interest you:

  • Players that landed on Vikendi: 173,371,318
  • Deadliest weapon on Vikendi: HK416
    • Most kills
    • Most used

Meanwhile, the top drop in Season 7 was Dinoland, Vikendi’s hottest new attraction. This was previously a theme park that was a cash cow, but that all went downhill when their mascot was run over by a train. There were a total of 12,772,463 drops in Dinoland. After Dinoland, the other hot drops were Goroka, Villa, Castle, and Podvosto.

Speaking of trains, Season 7 marked the return of Vikendi’s rail system. Important milestones include:

  • Average train ride: 22 seconds
  • Number of deaths by train: 128,742
  • Number of train rides taken: 20,484,164
  • Most popular train station: Vihar

C4 also made an appearance in Vikendi and the throwable C4 became an instant fan favorite, considering that it allowed for some creativity in building traps while also letting players improvise on the fly. There were a total of 6,791,232 detonations, while the total kills by C4 was 513,292.
