Have you ever had a debt too big to pay? This group of extraordinary individuals have one unique factor that unites them. That is to be free from a sinister mob boss who purchased all the debt owed by these individuals and their degenerate family members. To pay off their debts, this crew must take down all opposing gangs throughout the city and build up his territory. Once these Misfits figure out that they can never get out of debt, the only solution is to overthrow the boss and take down his reign. Only by working together as a team, can this become a reality.

Contract Killer: This is your traditional team death match with 10 vs. 10 players. The first team to reach target number of kills or that has the most kills when the timer expires wins the match.
Gang War: Similar to contract killer but 4 teams of 5 players fight against each other for bragging rights to see who has the best crew. The team with the most kills before the timer or the counter expires wins the match.
Smash & Grab: This objective based game mode has three rounds and no re-spawns. Your crew is tasked to smash and grab the contents of three randomly placed safes in the level. You must destroy as many safes and bring their contents back to your getaway vehicle before the time expires, there are no enemies left or there are no safes left in the round. The team with the most objectives completed will win the match.
Turf War: This is your traditional territories match. Use teamwork to capture points randomly placed in the environment. The team with the most points, captures and holds their turf will win the match.
Cash Grab: The objective is to collect and bank the most money through kills, destructibles and randomly placed cash bags throughout the environment. The team that collects the most cash and banks it at their getaway point will win the match. Don't wait too long to bank your cash, because if you get killed you become a money pinata and everything you just picked up becomes someone else's cash.
