Snow Brawl LTM

Snow Brawl is a snow-filled capture the flag game mode, with Respawn. The match starts with flags in the home base of each team. The goal is for players to capture the flag of the opposing team and bring it back to their own base to score a point. Flags can be released by the holder or by taking down the carrier. Fallen flags can be returned to base by picking them up.

Both teams are equipped with unlimited Snowballs as the main weapon in this fight, with the Snowblast Launcher as secondary, ready to push-back. Three hits down a player and sends them to Respawn. Boosts available on the map include: Running speed, Rate of fire, Air jab ammo, Health packs.

The team with the most points at the end wins, and in case of a tie we go into overtime. First to score in Sudden Death wins.


On the offense we have The Orange Blizzards coming in hot with the Attackers:

Ash gets crafty gift-wrapping a victory; Blackbeard reprises his role as the benevolent Snow Beard; Buck soldiers in to break down the defense; Montagne is everyone’s little helper this season; Osa’s shiny nose will guide this team to victory.

Taking the defensive The Blue Blades bring in some solid Defenders:

Castle really bears down on this snowball fight; Frost is geared up for mischief; Rook blends in with his abominable defense; Thorn is all ears and prowling the snowbanks; Vigil is dealing out punishment and telling you why.
