"Kill everyone. The first player to reach the score limit ends the game. The Top 3 players win."
— Official Description.
Free-for-All, also known as "FFA", "Deathmatch" (Call of Duty and Call of Duty 2) or "Wolfpack of 1" (the last of which as an April Fool's day joke), is a Call of Dutymultiplayer gametype, which puts every player against each other.
"It's "every man for himself." Points are awarded for kills, and the first player to either reach the score limit (set by the server administrator) or have the most points when time runs out is the victor"
Score to win is 1500 points (equivalent to 30 kills)
Each kill gives 50 points.
Free-for-All Victor I unlocks the title "Lone Wolf."
Free-for-All Victor II unlocks the title "The Feared."
Free-for-All Victor III unlocks the "Joystick" emblem.
Calling in a Tactical Nuke Killstreak while having less kills than another player will end the match in defeat, regardless of how many kills the nuke obtains. It will also not complete the "Ultimate Sacrifice" Challenge.
Featured inCall of Duty: World at War, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 andCall of Duty: Black Ops II (custom games only) is a hardcore version of Free-for-All. Same rules apply except players have 30% of normal health. Upon death, respawn time is fixed at 7.5 seconds (unlike 15 second waves in Hardcore Team Deathmatch), during which time the dead player can spectate other players. However, due to the fact of it being a hardcore mode, as well as widespread camping and simply the fact that it is every player for themselves with common one hit kills makes the playlist considerably less popular than its regular counterpart.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 features radio sounds for Hardcore Free-for-All, Free-for-All Pro, and 3rd person Free-For-All radio sounds could be heard in 3rd Person Cage Match. But these three game modes have either been scrapped or removed in patches.
