Chaos Mode:

Challenges, side quests, and mission aside, Chaos Squad is another way of earning weapons, itemsband money. By heading in to the online portion of the game which is done by entering a photo-booth and waiting for players to join.

Up to eight players will be grouped together where they can access a variety of activities featuring quests and challenges with the focus being placed on accumulating a high score. As some of the unlockables in here can only be accessed through the Chaos Mode it’s worth participating in.

Mission variety within Chaos Mode consists of destroying a number of enemies within a time limit, hacking transmitters, delivering supply drops, destroying bunkers, and protecting signal jammers upon delivery based missions. There are also wave based arena-style missions, fail states based on team member deaths, and high score accumulation within round based missions.

As a team consists of up to eight players it’s worth mixing up weapon loadouts and experimenting with items and traps. Doing so will have the players prepared for what ever missions they participate in and what surprises the game may throw at them.
