Game Modes

  1. Team Deathmatch: Work with friends or other players and try to take down the opposing team. Use the player skills to help your team mates in claiming victory.
  2. EMP Mode: In EMP Mode, the attacking team has to work together to detonate 3 points across the map. The attacking team must be careful though, because the defending team can claim ownership of the EMP and defuse it. If this happens, the attacking team will have to spend team resources to acquire a new one.
  3. Virus Mode: With the team’s credits constantly ticking down, it is up to each team to upload a virus to one of a set of terminals located throughout each level. No one has control of these terminals and the race is on to upload a virus to leach more points from the opposing team. The more terminals a team owns, the faster the opposing teams score is reduced.
  4. Upload Mode: With a credit target to reach, it is up to each team to find the terminals positioned throughout each level and access them to start stealing funds. With the terminal location changing randomly, the teams must be quick to reach the new location to earn them a multiplier.
