Wager Matches - Ante Up
Wager Matches come in four flavors and at three bid levels. They can be played on any map, though usually the smaller ones are cycled in more often. They're free-for-all game types with special rules.
One In The Chamber is the first game type. Each player is given a pistol with one bullet that will instantly kill an enemy player. Each player also has three lives. You kill a player, you get a bullet. If you have no bullets, your only option is to knife someone. The game is played until the time limit, or until only one player remains. The top three players by kills wins. Your remaining lives don't matter.
Sticks and Stone s gives you the Ballistic Knife, the Crossbow, and the Tomahawk. Players fight it out with these weapons, scoring points for kills until the time limit is up. Killing a player with the Tomahawk will reset their score to 0, so watch out; even the most comfortable lead will be gone in an instant.
Gun Game starts every player with the Python with speed reload. There are 20 tiers of weapons to advance through, progressively more powerful and dangerous weapons. Kill a player with your current weapon to advance a tier. Knife a player and they go down a tier, but you don't go up a tier. The tiers are: Python with Speed Reload, Dual Makarov pistols, SPAS-12, Stakeout, MP5K, Dual Skorpions, AK-74u, M14, M16, FAMAS, AUG, HK21, M60, L96A1, WA2000, Grim Reaper, LAW, China Lake, Crossbow, Ballistic Knife. Fire fast and fire often! You will never run out of ammo for your current weapon, no matter what it is. Top three scorers win the money.
Sharpshooter is the fourth and final type of Wager Match. Every player starts with a random weapon, with random attachments. This can be anything from Akimbo Makarovs to ACOG L96A1s to Ballistic Knives. Every player has the same weapon. Every 45 seconds, the weapons change. The rounds go for a set limit, with the final round giving 2x score for each kill. The top three scorers make the money at the end.
