Limited Time Modes

Overwatch events are very fond of Limited Time Modes, bringing something new to the game for a few weeks. Last year, we saw Bounty Hunter get added to Arcade rotation. In this, all players have to hunt down a bounty to get points and stay alive for as long as possible.

As well as this, we saw CTF Blitz - a capture the flag mode with much closer boundaries. This was great for those looking to fight up close and personal. If we see the return of these, we might get a good event.
