Shootout is a round-robin style tournament where each team plays against the others.
The two teams with the highest number of victory points meet in the final battle, where the winner is decided.
There are three options for team sizes:
- solo - a team of one fighter
- duo - a team of two fighters
- trio - a team of three fighters
Depending on the team size option, matches can last from 1 to 2 rounds. The final fight always takes place in the format of 3 rounds - up to two victories.
Victory in the round can be earned in two ways - completely destroy the enemy team or, if the victory condition is not met in the main time of the round, then an overtime objective point is activated, which must be held for a certain time.
If the participants for the finals cannot be identified by the main score due to the fact that two or more teams have the same number of points, then the finalists are determined by additional points, which are scored for the entertainment - kill streaks, first blood, clean victory, etc.
Shootout Trios - four teams of three people, each fight consists of two rounds
Shootout Duos - six teams of two people, each fight consists of one round
Shootout Solos - eight one-man teams, each fight consists of one round (this option may be changed in the future)
TeamFight is a 5v5 team match in which the first team to score 5 round victories wins.
The victory in the round is achieved by completely eliminating the opposing team during main round time.
If the opposing team was not eliminated during the main round time, then additional victory conditions are activated. The overtime timer starts and activates special objectives in the center of the location that need to be captured. The first team to capture the point or finish off the opposing team wins the round.
If the winner hasn't been decided in the overtime, then a cleanup crew is released into the Arena, which will hunt the surviving contestants until one of the teams is fully eliminated.
To win, you must either defeat the enemy in battle, or capture the objective.
Escape from Tarkov Arena is a standalone game project: a session multiplayer first-person shooter for PC with all the known and loved hardcore game mechanics of Escape from Tarkov.
Arena players face each other in gladiatorial battles in various arenas created by the organizers of the battles in various parts of the city of Tarkov. Battle glory, respect and, of course, awards are at stake in battles. Behind the organization of the battles is a mysterious group of Arena Masters, led by the Host.
The game will feature various PvP and PvE game modes, a variety of weapons and equipment in presets, ratings, as well as unique features for owners of the main Escape from Tarkov game. One of the main ones is the opportunity to participate in the Arena battles as your main character.
Arena battles are divided into two main types - ranked and unranked.
Unranked matches allow fighters to learn the mechanics of the Arena, train or play for fun in any location and with opponents of any difficulty.
Ranked mode is a skill competition for the title of the best fighter in the Arena. Ranked matches determine the player's rank, increasing or decreasing it depending on the results of the match, the selected preset, and possible additional bonuses.
The received rating affects the character's Rank and determines with whom he will play in a new match, which presets are available for purchase. For the ranked mode, only the most balanced modes and locations are available in order to equalize the chances of winning as much as possible.
