The main mode, Cash, requires teams of three to complete tasks such as opening a vault and transporting its contents to a designated location, similar to a game of Capture the Flag. Accumulating in-game currency is accomplished by defeating opponents, completing missions, and performing well in battles.

Players choose a character classified as “Light,” “Medium,” or “Heavy,” each with different abilities and weapons. However, the game allows customization of weapons and equipment, thus promoting diverse gameplay strategies.

The game fosters creativity by offering dynamic elements such as destructible environments, changing weather and time conditions, and flexible team composition. Additionally, the arena features interactive elements such as throwable objects and resurrection mechanics, adding depth to the gaming experience.

One developer noted that the game’s destructible environments revolutionized players’ thinking as they discovered creative ways to exploit this freedom, such as using rocket launchers to create openings instead of traditional doors. To ensure a smooth gaming experience, game servers manage the calculations of environmental destruction.
