Cranked Overview

Cranked Game Mode
Round LimitScore LimitParty Size

A mode similar to Team Deathmatch with both teams facing-off in a map. The twist is that a speed boost is rewarded to the player after a kill but also makes the player a ticking time bomb. Kills further extend the timer, forcing the player to be more aggressive to rack up points!

30 Seconds To Live

Crank 30 Seconds Timer

Upon killing an enemy, you'll have a timer appear at the left side of the screen. Everytime you kill an enemy, the counter resets to 30 seconds. Failure to kill during those 30 seconds will cause you to explode.

How to Win a Round

Rack Up More Points

Rack Up More Points

Each player must contribute more points for the team's overall score. A continuous kill streak produces more score for the team. The first team to reach 150 points wins the match.

Cranked Recommended Weapons

Recommended Weapons List

Model 680Model 680A reliable pump-action shotgun that can blast through enemies in close-range.
MP5MP5Great mobility with decent range. Can be relied upon even when hip-fired.
AUGAUGSame as with the MP5. May be better due to its extensive selection of attachments.
MP7MP7The SMG with the highest rate of fire. Can hose down multiple enemies when hip-fired.
.50GS.50 GSHandgun that hits like a truck. A great secondary when your SMG or shotgun runs out of juice.

Criteria For Recommendations

Rely On Weapon Mobility

Being on the move and aggressively pursuing enemies is the way to play in this game mode. Use high mobility weapons like SMGs or high-powered pistols to outmaneuver and outpace the opposing team.

Reliable Hip-Fire Accuracy & Damage

With the fast pacing of this mode, aiming down sights is not recommended. These weapons offer a pretty decent accuracy and damage when fired from the hip.

Use Grenades Or Semtex

Use Throwable Explosives instead of traps like the Claymore and Proximity Mine. As you are constantly on the move, use these lethals to flush out enemy positions.

Gain An Advantage With Tacticals

Snapshot Grenades To Know Enemy Positions

Tagging enemies in Cranked is invaluable as you can home in on targets to extend your clock. Know that enemies will know that they're tagged so expect ambushers.

Use Stims To Heal Up

Use Stims To Heal Up

Time is of the essence especially if you're a ticking time bomb. Stop waiting for the recovery period and use a Stim to continue the offensive.

Double-Time For More Speed!

Speed is of the essence in this game mode and the Double-Time Perk gives you just that. With the extended time to sprint, you can quickly follow enemies to extend your time or run away to a safe place to recover.

Use Tracker To Seek Targets

Use Tracker to track targets

Tracker is a must-have in this game mode as it allows you to seek out and follow targets. You can use this perk to ambush them from behind and rack up some kills to extend your clock.

Ghost For Stealth

The Ghost Perk makes you invisible to enemy UAVs and snapshot grenades. This makes you almost invisible to enemy electronics and radar equipment.

Cranked Tips

Seek Out Targets!

The goal in Cranked is to rack up some kills. The higher your kill count and the longer your streak, the more points for your team. Continue to seek out targets and start sprinting and firing!

Prepare To Hip-Fire

Seek Out Targets!

Aiming down sights is probably a good thing in certain situations, but with the need to run around the map and seek out targets, hip-fire might be the better way of aiming. Use guns like shotguns or SMGs that are reliable when hip-fired.
