So what are we waiting for? Let’s jump right in!

1. Lockdown

The first new game mode I want to go over is known simply as Lockdown. It is a new twist on the classic King of The Hill game mode that we all know and love. In this game type, there are three different hills scattered around the map. You will need to fight over and capture each of these three hills. Once you control all of them, you’ll score a single point.

The hills will reset and move to a new location once you capture all three of them and score. This is an interesting new game mode that doesn’t do that much to stand out from the regular King of The Hill mode. Regardless, it is a nice new addition that shakes up the gameplay a bit and gives you something new to enjoy.

2. Hotzone

Up next on our article for the three all new game modes in Splitgate Season 2 explained, we have the brand new take on domination, known as Hotzone! In Hotzone, you are tasked with taking over a natural zone that spawns in one part of the map. You’ll need to capture and hold this neutral zone for 30 seconds in order to score one point for you and your team.

Much like the mode Lockdown, this one really isn’t all that special or unique. I enjoyed playing it, for the most part, this game mode is very similar to what we already have in the game. At the end of the day, any new content is (usually) good content. And I still recommend you try this game mode out for yourself to see if you like it.

3. Juggernaught

Now for my personal favorite new game mode added with this season: Juggernaught! This is a variant of the regular Free For All mode, but with an interesting twist. This time around, one random person at the start of the game will be chosen as the Juggernaught.

This Juggernaught is much more challenging to kill than a regular player. The Juggernaught will need to survive against every other player in the game, all of which are on the same team. If you manage to stay alive you’ll be able to score points in order to win the match.

While this game mode isn’t original by any means, it is still a great new way to play deathmatch. Playing as the Juggernaught is always intense, and the game mode is a blast to play on either side. Out of the three new game modes released this season, I would say that Juggernaught is the best one. It’s a must-play if you enjoy playing Splitgate.
