Battle Royale




Sur­vive the count­down! The Storm Cir­cles give play­ers more room to hunt down oppo­nents. The final cir­cle trig­gers a count­down timer; when the time is up, the team with the most play­ers remain­ing wins. In this LTM, teams can tie for the Vic­to­ry Royale!

  • Final Fight plays sim­i­lar to stan­dard Bat­tle Royale, but instead of the Storm cir­cles clos­ing all the way, the Storm stops after the 3rd circle.
  • When the cir­cles have fin­ished clos­ing in, the final count­down timer will begin.
  • The remain­ing teams will bat­tle it out until the timer expires.
  • The team with the most play­ers remain­ing at the end of the timer wins!
  • In the event of a tie, the two (or more) teams tied for the lead win the match.
