Gearbox Software has taken its favorite Battleborn PvP modes and smashed them together to create Supercharge Mode.

According to the developer, this new free game mode takes the best parts of Meltdown and combines them with Capture to create a “whole new, fast-paced experience for smaller squads.”

“Like Meltdown, the goal of Supercharge is to earn APPEASEMENT POINTS from MINREC – the robotic god of minion destruction – but with a new twist: now teams can sweeten their minion waves by fighting to control a single capture point,” the developer explains. “The team that owns the capture point ‘supercharges’ their minion wave, adding tougher minions and more opportunities for scoring points!”

The mode offers 3v3 gameplay across three new maps created and sized specifically for Supercharge: Ziggurat, Permafrost, and Horizon. There’s also a number of new Supercharge-specific challenges that reward players with titles, experience, and Credits.

Supercharge mode is available now for free on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

For those who missed the news earlier this month, Battleborn is now available as a free download on all platforms. Players will have unlimited access to all competitive multiplayer modes and maps with no time limit or level cap. All 30 characters are also available for free, but players will only have access to six at a time, with the roster of available characters rotating each week.
