Offense wins if both points are taken successfully, while defense will win if any points remain untaken.
Take Advantage of Healing Zones!
Certain areas of the map will restore HP and MP. Players who are defeated are removed from play temporarily, but will respawn after a timer counts down.
Choose Guns and Materia Each Round!
Items you receive at the start of a match will be determined by the style you choose. You will also receive gil after each round, which can be spent on additional items.
