What Is Face Off? - Mode Overview
|How To Win|
|Depends on the game mode|
Face Off is a close-quarters 3 versus 3 game mode. It plays similarly to 2v2 Gunfight as players must secure victory inside a very small map. Unlike Gunfight however, players immediately respawn after death and can use Custom Loadouts. There is also no Scorestreaks in this game mode.
Unlike the Deathmatch-only Gunfight, players must satisfy objectives in Face Off to win the match. These objectives are random and use rules from common game modes. Given the scale, the objectives and conditions are adjusted to fit a smaller player count.

Face Off Gameplay Tips
Grind For XP Here
3v3 Face Off is always held in a very compact map, requiring little travel time to encounter an enemy. You also respawn immediately after you die, making it very easy to go around and shoot some more. If you're planning on grinding for XP, completing objectives, or weapon levels, this is the best game mode to do it.
Better With 2XP
You can get double XP tokens for both player XP and weapon XP from the Battle Pass. Also, stay tuned for announcements for special events that implement global 2XP for all. Take advantage of these and grind your weapons and rank to easily reach max weapon levels and Prestige!Check Out Double XP Events Here!
Maps Are Very Small
As mentioned above, the maps used in Face Off are from 2v2 Gunfight. Expect little to no legroom and occasional spawn camps.Check Out All Maps Here!
Play The Objectives
If you get game modes like Hardpoint and Domination, proactively play the objectives. Remember that killing enemy players is not the only way to win in some matches.
|Team Deathmatch||Be the first team to reach 50 kills|
|Domination||Reach 100 points by securing zones in the map|
|Kill Confirmed||Collect 50 dog tags from downed enemies|
|Hardpoint||Collect points by securing objectives around the map|
Face Off Recommended Weapons & Equipment
Bring SMGs, Shotguns, & ARs
The most aggressive team in Face Off is the clear winner. With that, bring close-quarters weapons like SMGs and Shotguns, and use them to quickly get kills. Assault Rifles also work well here but are eclipsed by the SMG and Shotgun when it comes to CQC.Check Out The All Weapons Here!
The maps leave no room for enemies to easily dodge both tacticals and lethals. Tacticals can also give your teammates an advantage if properly used. Bring Flashbangs or Stun Grenades and use them whenever possible. It also helps if you have the Danger Close Wildcard.Check Out All Tactical Equipment Here!
