Squad Busters Game Modes
To complete this presentation of Squadbusters gameplay, I necessarily have to talk about the game modes available. In multiplayer, the Supercell game offers to join solo or duo games.
For solitary players, you have to go to the gem hunt mode. Here, 9 players compete by eliminating creatures and elements of the PvE scenery for gold and gems. To steal gems from other players, they can also eliminate each other. By the way, death is permanent in the Gem Hunt mode, and the squad with the higher number of gems wins the game.
For those who prefer play Squad Busters with a friend, the duo Mine Rush mode offers a ready-made solution. In-game, you are then faced with 3 other teams in duo and you have to accumulate as many stones as possible to win. In the mine rush mode, death is not final. So you can resurrect your squad after having been Busted.
That’s all we know for now about the gameplay of Squad Busters after this beta, but we’ll tell you more soon in the weeks to come!
