The Painkiller: Battle Out of Hell expansion adds three more multiplayer game modes to the list. The list includes Duel, Last Man Standing and the highly anticipated Capture the Flag mode. With 8 total games modes Painkiller has something for everyone. Unless you happen to be an MMORPG enthusiast. In which case you should immediately proceed to the nearest spellbook and begin casting magic missile.


Mode Specific Options
Fraglimit: 0
Timelimit: 15
Weapon Stay: No
Weapon Respawn Time: 15s.

This game mode is a two player Deathmatch. The winner is the player who reaches the frag limit first, or has the most frags when time expires. The other players connected to the server can spectate the match while they wait in line. The winner stays on to play the next game against the first person in line. The loser is then sent to the end of the line.

Tips and Notes

» It’s not always about what you have, but more so about what you can take away from your opponent.
» He who has the gold wins the game. Control the Gold Armor.
» Time the Mega Health. This item can turn the tide in a match.
» Prediction, Prediction, Prediction. Know where your opponent is at all times and anticipate his next move.

Capture The Flag

Mode Specific Options
Capturelimit: 10
Timelimit: 20
Weapon Stay: No
Weapon Respawn Time: 15s.

Capture the Flag in Painkiller: Battle out of Hell is a team-based game that works similarly to the traditional capture the flag games. The first team to reach the preset capture limit, or the team with the most captures when time expires, wins.

Tips and Notes

» Why does everyone always want to be the hero? Defense wins CTF games so take one for the team once in a while.
» Don’t steal armor from your flag carrier. Self explanatory.
» If the coast is clear, wait a short time after your flag is returned before capping. This will give the return team an opportunity to steal another quick cap.
» Attacking in waves will increase your chances for a successful capture.

Last Man Standing

Mode Specific Options
Fraglimit: 12
Timelimit: 15s.
Weapon Stay: 100
Weapon Respawn Time: Yes

Last Man Standing is, as the title implies, an individual game. Prior to the start of the game, the game’s host sets a life limit ( 3 is the default). When all players appear on the map the battle begins. Every time you are killed, you lose one life. When your number of lives reaches zero, you become a spectator and watch as the battle continues. The last player with at least one life remaining wins the match.

Tips and Notes

» Sometimes the best offense is good defense. Let the other players beat each other up and then start mop up duty.
» As in the other game modes, controlling the Gold Armor and power-ups can greatly increase your chances for survival.
» Don’t fall in the slime on DM_Factory. Sizzle.
» Spawn kills are an easy way to magically turn the other players into spectators. Know the spawns and whore them.
