Reality Augment is basically a perk system that grants a temporary buff to the players. These perks are given to the players at certain intervals in their match, and they will be given a randomized choice of two Reality Augments.

The longer a user survives in the match, the more Reality Augments they will collect. Also, it's worth noting that Reality Augments last until the match's end. After receiving a Reality Augment, press "7" on your keyboard and select one of the perks to activate it. After that, the buff will automatically be applied.
