Overview[edit | edit source]
Golden Gun 1.0[edit | edit source]
The mode is a variant of Secure Area and was only available on Oregon. The gamemode does not have a planning phase as the Attackers already know the whereabouts of the objective. Each player only has access to a D-50 adorned with the golden Extravagance weapon skin. The weapon is a one-hit kill to all players but will need to be reloaded after every shot. Knifing is possible which can make up a missed shot. Rounds are won once all players on the opposing team have been eliminated or the area is secured.
Golden Gun 2.0[edit | edit source]
The second incarnation of the mode retains all of the rules and gameplay modifiers as Golden Gun 1.0 in addition to the ban of the Deployable Shield. As a result, all defending Operators are given a temporary alternative such as the Bulletproof Camera. The mode is available on Border, Coastline, and House.
Operators[edit | edit source]
Only 38 of the 57 Operators are available for use due to balancing. All 38 available Operators are unlocked for use by all players. The following Operators are unavailable for use in the gamemode.
