|Round Limit||Score Limit||Party 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
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
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 680||A reliable pump-action shotgun that can blast through enemies in close-range.|
|MP5||Great mobility with decent range. Can be relied upon even when hip-fired.|
|AUG||Same as with the MP5. May be better due to its extensive selection of attachments.|
|MP7||The SMG with the highest rate of fire. Can hose down multiple enemies when hip-fired.|
|.50 GS||Handgun 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.
Cranked Recommended Equipment
|Frag Grenade||Lethal||Cookable fragmentation grenade|
|Semtex||Lethal||Timed sticky grenade|
|Stim||Tactical||Military stimulant that cauterizes combat wounds and refreshes Tactical Sprint|
|Snapshot Grenade||Tactical||Provides a momentary glimpse of enemies within the blast radius.|
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
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.
Cranked Recommended Perk
|Double Time||Double the duration of Tactical Sprint. Increase crouch movement speed by 30%|
|Tracker||Enemies leave behind a footprint trail. See markers at enemy death locations, and hide the death markers of enemy you kill|
|Ghost||Undetectable by UAVs, Radar Drones, and Heartbeat Sensors. Immune to snapshot grenades.|
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
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.Check Out The All Perk List Here!
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
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.
