Resistance 3 Game Modes

Resistance 3 offers several game modes to choose from, you can play whichever you like from free for all, objective and other team based modes. Below you will find detailed overview of each game mode.

Chain Reaction
In this mode, the Chimera has to activate the transformers while the human part has to destroy it. The centre of the map is the most heated part of the battlefield. One person has to deactivate the transformer while others have to defend him as it has a countdown. You can also keep aside the objectives and kill the enemies in this mode.Killing 50 enemies are more than enough to drain the other team and win the battle.

Hardcore
Hardcore, as the name indicates removes all the upgrades, abilities and passives from the game and mainly provides the basic weapons. It doesn’t have the gaining xp points issue. As the players have to take each other down using the primary weapons and using their own skills.

Capture the Flag
This mode allows the players to have the enemy flag while defending their own. The person that holds the flag cannot use any weapons nor can he sprint but has only the melee attacks.

If the person gets killed, the flag while be returned to the base after 8-10 seconds so stealth and speed shall be of high priority. Humans shall use the Thermal Vision and the Radar Beacons as the Chimera has the advantage in this mode due to their cloaking ability. They can easily sneak up from behind and grab the flag so planning is necessary for victory.

Breach
The humans have to attack an installation while the Chimera has to defend that location. The attackers have 50 reinforcements while the numbers for the defenders is unlimited.

If the attackers are planning an attack, they shall first focus on the Shield Node and the Turret before taking out the main reactor. Defenders have the advantage in this mode but the attackers can win by taking out as many defenders as possible.

Deathmatch
Also known as the Free for all which includes 16 players fighting each other in an area. All the players in this mode will either be the Chimera or the Humans. As you are on your own so abilities like the Scavenger, Hazmat Suits and the Body Armor comes into great use. The player need to score as many kills as he can to win the match.

Team Deathmatch
It is a team based deathmatch mode dividing the number of players into 8 on each side i.e Humans vs Chimera. Distribute the buffs accordingly and use Spotter as much as possible. The number of reinforcements is also limited to 50 by default. The team with the more points will win until the timer runs out.

It consists of Bullseye, Lightning Shield, Tracker, Spotter, Air-cooled Barrel and the Hedgehog.The spotter can help in gaining 90xp from each enemy you tag whether it is killed by you or your friendly ally.

You can upgrade the Rossmore’s ammo to incendiary rounds to kill enemies with some damage. Use the Tracker ability to sneak behind the enemies and tracing the path of the snipers.
