The main draw to Splitgate, and what makes it unique, is what many have called a combination of Bungie’s Halo and Valve’s Portal. Splitgate seamlessly marries the fast-paced arena-shooter with the functionality of wacky portal movement and head boggling transitions. 1047 Games certainly aren’t afraid to wear its heart on its sleeve, if you’ve ever played a game of Halo, you’ll see many similarities not just intrinsically but throughout the entire game.
There are two general game types in Splitgate, casual and competitive, each with their own list of game modes. Competitive has your standard list of hardcore game types: King of the Hill, Domination, and Team Deathmatch. For casual there is a lot of fun game modes you might see in Halo: All the aforementioned modes, SWAT, Oddball, VIP, Shotty-Snipers, Capture the Flag, and Fiesta. Inside the casual game types is an extra list of party game types that may sound familiar: Gun Game, Instagib, One in the Chamber, Laser Tag, and Infection. With so many options to choose there are many game modes to play, but for the purposes of this analysis we’ll be sticking with casual team deathmatch.
