Secondly, there is a Capture the Flag version which lets players climb the ranks.

The second mode is a free-for-all bounty hunter arcade mode.

The first person to get a kill gets a bounty on them which increases points gained with kills whilst being the bounty.

However, if a player kills another player with the bounty then they get the bounty transferred to them.
