At any point during the match they can run to a respawn beacon and insert your banner, which will respawn you in a dropship so you can rejoin the game. "It's the ideal recipe for a marketing plan to go awry, so why have that - let's just ship the game and let players play". Those who choose to purchase it for a flat fee are able to unlock additional cosmetic items as they continue to play.
