This mode allows you to set up battles between competing teams of enemies and have optional support NPC's on your side. Choose this mode, and a map, and then select up to four controllable heroes as normal. In the Enemy selection screen, you can use the special characters '--------' and '---Buddies---' to create separate teams.
Say you want to play MinuteMan and BlackJack, aided by a few cops, trying to break up a riot between Nazis and Gangsters.
Pick Minuteman and BlackJack as your controllable heroes and fill the enemy list like so:
The cops come after a '---Buddies---' entry, so they will start near your heroes and fight on their side. The next group (starting with the first '----' is the gangster and pinstripe - they'll start off together somewhere on the map fighting either the heroes or the nazis, whoever they encounter first. The Nazi's are designated as a separate team by starting with a '----' character, and will also work as a team and fight both the heroes and Pinstripe's mob.
sometimes four heroes aren't enough to take down a villain, and epic mode allows you to switch between active team members on the fly.
It works like Skirmish Team Mode, except that any player controlled hero (one with a portrait) can use a TRANSFER command on any member of the Buddies team fighting with them to switch player control to that character. The character using the command then becomes an AI controlled Buddy, unless one of the portraited characters has been KO'd, in which case they get replaced.
For example, take Minute Man, Mentor, El Diablo and ManBot into the Epic Mode, against the following setup:
Man O War
This will effectively pit 8 members of Freedom Force against a single villain. The four characters listed above will fight under their own volition until you use TRANSFER command. Until someone falls (which wont be long in this case...) you can choose which four heroes are controllable and which four fight under AI at any time.
Similar to team mode, but allows you to just play the non-existant '-----' character.
Select that character as your playable hero, then set up teams as per Team Mode. The '----' character is fast, and acts like a focus for the camera, allowing you to move around the map easily and watch the action as it plays out.
You'll fight a random assortment of your selected enemies in multiple waves. The number of waves you'll face is equal to the number of selected enemies. This mode supports the special characters '--------' and '---Buddies---'.
In this mode, your team will have to stop criminal mayhem, as every enemy is against everyone else!
