Basic Rules

Fight for Control of Points on the Map in Three-on-Three Matches!

Each team is randomly granted the role of either offense or defense at the start of a match. The team on offense must try to take specified points on the map, but points cannot be taken if anyone on defense is in the designated area. Offense wins if both points are taken successfully, while defense will win if any points remain untaken.

Take Advantage of Healing Zones!

Certain areas of the map will restore HP and MP. Players who are defeated are removed from play temporarily, but will respawn after a timer counts down.

Choose Guns and Materia Each Round!

Items you receive at the start of a match will be determined by the style you choose. You will also receive gil after each round, which can be spent on additional items.

Limited-Time Challenges

Special challenges that reward playing Blitz Mode: Shinra Building will be available for a limited time. Complete challenges to earn stars, which will increase your season level and grant rewards. Season 2: Dominate the Sky ends on June 2nd, making this an opportunity to collect any stars you still need.
