Marines VS Ninja[]

Marines VS Ninjas is a fan made game mode adapted from Balloon Battle, and was founded by a group of 3 players on February 13 2012. The rules are simple, players with lives are called "Marines" and players without lives are called "Ninjas." Marines try to stay alive as long as possible, and cannot use Widowmaker Turrets, TPC Launchers, or Stealth, and Ninjas can only use melee attacks, their goal is to deplete the lives of all the marines. Marines win by surviving the time limit, and Ninjas win by killing all the marines before the time limit.

Tips and Recommendations[]

  • Because TPC Launchers and Widowmaker turrets are forbidden, camping is difficult but still the best idea, bunker down in a long straightaway.
  • The more players in the game the more lag, no fan-made game modes are recommended for more than 8 players.
  • The SCAR is the weapon of choice for this game mode since it has a high fire rate and is fairly accurate.
  • A few of the worst weapons to pick are: AEGIS Devie, Phase Rifle, Strike Rifle, HVS45, and Darkstar. Sniper Rifles and other slow shooting weapons will usually get you killed.
