  • Survivors: A game mode where each team has four players that have only one life each, making players use strategy and stealth to win over their opponents.
  • Interrogation: In this game, the objective is to interrogate the enemy team, by killing the enemy players, and then walking over to their bodies and getting information about the location of their lock box, before they die. Once all the interrogations are complete, the team then can locate the opposing teams lockbox and open it, thus winning the game.
