SpiderHeck: Game Modes for Maximum Glory

A gallery of gladiatorial feats to make you feel like a true Arachking.
Updated regularly for my own reference as much as yours.


Versus Battle Settings

So we’re setting up a Versus Battle and are met with 3 changeable settings and 3 additional sub-categories. Looks like there’s a lot to be messed with here, how do we proceed?


These are your preferred default settings that carry across game modes.

A no-brainer default option is your Lobby Type which can be PublicFriends Only, or the pause-able Offline.

A potential default is your Winning Score depending on both your preference of game length and your current map pool.
It can be 1-10, then increments of 5 to 100.
If you’d like to do a gauntlet of every map for example, the number you’re after is 35.

The Death Zone encroaches from one, multiple or all sides on Normal.
It can also go FastFastest, or remain Static in it’s starting position.
I default this to Static unless the game mode depends otherwise.

The further down this menu we go, the more its contents sway from Defaults to Game Mode Dependencies.

Map Pool

There are a total of 35 maps. Whichever ones you have selected when starting a match will be your current Map Pool. You can default all 35, blacklist maps you don’t like, or create a unique pool to compliment a game mode.

Weapon Weight

There are 23 weapons which can all be assigned a weight from 1 to 5. This will only effect the weapons chance of being selected during a spawn and won’t effect the spawn rates themselves.
Here, blades & spears spawn often (5), grenades, basic guns and better blades spawn occasionally (3), and most other items spawn rarely (1).


There are 18 different gameplay mutators, each a stronger Plus+ variant.
None of these are initially enabled making this section the most powerful in altering the overall experience.
Some of these are defaultable, but most will be game mode specific majority of the time.

Making a Game Mode

is as simple as noting down a collection of settings which you can apply over your defaults to create a unique experience as quickly as possible.

There is no way to save presets in game, so this guide is going to also serve as my personal library as it’s quick and easy to access from steams overlay. Feel free to use these as inspiration for your own game modes.

I’d encourage you to share any you think are particularly fun with the community as well. You’re welcome to make your own guide or drop them in the comments here. If you match my formatting and would like it, I’ll feature your game mode with credits in the list itself.

You’re faster, stronger, more agile and accurate with powerful weapons that have more ammo. This has become my defacto default game mode for it’s tighter movement & stunt-ability.
Static Death Zone & Insulation+ combo’d with Bigger Booms & Blades make death zone kills more about your ability to send and keep someone there rather than being punished for slightly sloppy movement.
