It is also recommended to read through each Bioweapon's skills and stats to familiarize yourself with them.

Match Rules

Points System

The winners (1st through 3rd place are pictured) of the match are determined by their final score when the match timer ends. You can earn points by killing your enemies in the area and earn more by killing them consecutively in a short time. However, you will lose points each time you get killed, so be careful to balance out your kill to death ratio!

Free for All Match

Everyone is your enemy. Hunt them down and kill them to gain points in a match within a 5 minute time limit. Co-op multiplayer and team play are not available, but they may become available in future updates.

Death System

You will be starting as your selected character in a match. Once you die, you will transform into a bioweapon, making you invincible for a few seconds and giving you more chances to kill enemies and earn points. The bioweapon you'll turn into will depend on how many Virus Capsule you can get around the area.

Character Respawn - ReVerse.png
You will respawn as your character again after your bioweapon health gauge runs out. The health gauge runs out slowly over time and when you take damage.

Dodging and evading enemies will help you survive the fight longer. Use it when your the attack is about to land to avoid taking damage. It can also be a useful to when you need to create some space between a faster enemy. Dodging consumes stamina, so make sure to use it only when necessary.
