What Is Big Game Mode?
Fight As Boss or Fight Against Boss
In Big Game, Brawlers are able to play as the Boss of the match or with 4 other Brawlers against the Boss of the Event.
Try To Stay Alive The Longest As The Boss
The goal of the Boss in Big Game is to try and survive the longest that you can while picking off the 5 Brawlers that are trying to get to you.
As Normal Brawlers, Take Down Boss As Fast As Possible
If you're part of the 5 Brawlers tasked to take down the Boss, your goal is to whittle down their health & take them out even before the match is over!
Boss & Normal Brawlers Randomly Assigned
There is no guarantee if you will become the boss during a certain round. Therefore, try to choose Brawlers that you are comfortable using, or Brawlers that are good at being both roles.

Tips For Playing Big Game
Tips For Playing The Boss
Let The Brawlers Come To You
You have to keep yourself alive for as long as you can as the Boss in Big Game. You can elongate your life span by forcing Brawlers to come to you instead of moving forward and attacking them first.
Pick Brawlers Off One By One
Try to catch Brawlers individually instead of chasing after every one. You can focus fire to eliminate them, allowing you to survive longer as the walk back to the Boss end of the map takes very long.
Use Bushes To Hide & Ambush Enemies
Bushes will be very helpful for you as the boss. When in bushes, you will be able to hide from the enemy, and appear for a surprise attack against anyone unsuspecting enough to get close! Be careful as they may have backup nearby!
Avoid Getting Surrounded
When being hunted down, make sure that you don't get yourself surrounded. You might get driven to a corner where the enemy can focus their fire on you easily. If you find yourself in a tight spot, play aggressively, and charge forward to clear a path!
Stay Away From The Enemy Spawn Point
It is best that you stay away from the enemy Spawn Point. They will have a fully reloaded weapon, and are invincible for a few seconds. Going here would be useless since your attacks won't matter, and you can get hit a lot of times!
Tips For Playing Against Boss
Draw Boss Out From Their Side Of Map
The goal is to damage the Boss and defeat it as fast as you can! AoE attacks will be very effective in making the Boss move away from their side of the map, moving it closer to you and your team!
Getting Back To The Boss After Death Takes Longer
Retreat and heal yourself rather than jump into the fray with low HP. Respawning & going back to the Boss's side of the map takes a long time, defeating the purpose of lowering the Boss's health as quick as you can.
Surround & Push The Boss To Corners
It would be best for the team to surround the boss in such a way, that the team will be able to drive the boss to a corner. This way, the boss has nowhere to run, and the team can focus their fire to bring the boss down!
Support Teammates Using Specials
It is important to have at least one Brawler on the team that can heal their allies. This lets the team take more damage from hits, and prolong them enough to whittle the boss' HP down to 0!
Stick With Your Team & Don't Rush In Alone
Teamwork is imperative in this game mode since the Boss has tons of HP! Make sure that you are sticking with your team so that the boss will not be able to target you, and instantly knock you down. There is strength in numbers!

Table Flip Features & Tips
