Here is a description of the Arms Race which is a part of the Designer’s Cut.

Arms Race sees you running rampant across the Stormblind Complex, a decommissioned DAHL military base located on a wintry island that’s crawling with enemies and perpetually ravaged by calamitous weather called the Murdercane – short for ‘murder hurricane,’ naturally. The show begins the moment you’re stripped of your gear and dropped onto a random location in the complex, frantically fending off attackers using whatever weapons and gear you can find. Everyone starts Arms Race on equal footing, but only the best will be able to weather the encroaching storm, defeat the final boss, and claim coveted new Legendary weapons and items for keeps.
