** In 0 player mode (all bots), players and mapmakers could watch how the bots acted on the pathnodes. Combining this trope with TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything, when a bot approaches a blind corner or intersection, it'll hunch over suspiciously and walk slowly, with more defensive awareness.

spectators]].



Its success was such that Epic Games decided to entirely focus on the MP side of the franchise for the future.

It spawned two versions for UsefulNotes/SegaDreamcast and UsefulNotes/PlayStation2, featuring different maps and characters, in 2001. There were also four official releases as small and free {{Expansion Pack}}s, called "Bonus Packs". These were done respectively by Epic Games, Digital Extremes, Cedric "Inoxx" Fiorentino (the creator of the map [=CTF-Face=], a.k.a. "Facing Worlds") and by the three of them for Christmas 2000.[[note]]This is the only non-retail content to be mentioned in this page, as they are official releases and not third-party content.[[/note]]

The game features six playable modes, four of which can be found in the aforementioned Single Player mode:
* '''Deathmatch''' is the classic free-for-all mode where players are pit against each other and the one with the highest amount of frags wins.
* '''Team Deathmatch''' is the team-based version of Deathmatch, and up to four teams battle in order to rack the highest amount of frags. This mode doesn't appear in the SP ladder.
* '''Domination''' is a team game where up to four teams (two in the SP) battle in order to gain control of several areas of a map.
* '''CaptureTheFlag''' pits two teams in a map where the objective is to steal and capture the enemy flag while preventing the own flag to be taken and captured.
* '''Assault''' is a two-round-based gametype which pits two teams, Attack and Defense. The Attacking team (Red) must complete all of the objectives within a set time limit while the defending team (Blue) must prevent this. After the round ends, the teams are switched and the Blue team becomes the Attacking team and the Red team becomes the Defending team. The Blue team wins if they succeed in completing all of the objectives in less time than the Red team.
* '''Last Man Standing''' is a free-for-all gametype where each player has a set amount of lives and must take the lives of their opponents until one remains alive. This mode doesn't appear in the SP ladder.
