You will need to hit the ball or kick the ball into the opponent’s goal to get a point. Each round takes three minutes and the team with the highest score at the end of the timer wins the cycle. The winners then play in first place while the losers fight for third place.
Weapons and bombs also flood the field so that players can use them to manage the ball better. While you can’t hurt your opponents in this game mode, you can still throw some freezing bombs to give them cold feet.
