What Is Heist Mode?
Destroy Enemy's Safe While Defending Your Own
In Heist mode, you'll be in a team of 3 Brawlers competing with another team of 3 to destroy the opposing team's safe while keeping your own defended.
Deal Most Damage Or Destroy Safe To Win!
To win in Heist mode, you need to deal the most damage to the opposing team's safe. Or, you could just completely destroy the enemy team's safe!
Heist Mode Lasts For 2 Min, 30 Secs
Teams will only have 2 and a half minutes to deal as much damage as they can or completely destroy the opposing team's safe.
Balance Offense With Defense
Heist mode is quite fast-paced and competitive. You need to balance your offensive and defensive phases in order to counteract the opposing team's strategies.

Tips For Playing Heist
Use Throwers & Path Clearers To Reach Safe Fast
Throwers such as Barley & Dynamike and Path Clearers like Colt, Shelly, & Bull are effective Brawlers to use. Throwers can reach the safe with their range while obstacle destroyers use their Supers to clear the path to the safe!
Hide In Grass & Wait For Enemy To Go Down
Sometimes enemy Brawlers will focus on eliminating your team. Hide in the grass, wait for them to pass, then head to their safe to land solid hits. You'll have done enough damage before they notice!
Push When An Enemy Is Eliminated
There's a bit of a respawn cool down when a player is eliminated. You can use these precious few seconds to rush enemy territory and deal damage to their safe!
