Downfall's Multiplayer segment has had a lot of thought put into it.
What the main menu theme would be: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=llnIzZPtfzw
There are many different gametypes: this is a list of some, with the CoD gametype they're ispired by next to it.
- Mercenarys (FFA) Basic Free-for-All deathmatch.
- Skirmish (TDM) Basic Team deathmatch.
- Take and Hold (KOTH) Basic King-of-the-Hill type game.
- High Value Target (CTF) Like CTF, but with an object or individual that has to be captured, not a flag.
- Bomb Squad (S&D) Basically Search and Destroy with unlimited respawns. Demolition, if you will.
- Quarantine - Zombies vs Humans gametype.
- Gungame - Self-explanatory. Requires 2 kills to go up a weapon.
- Hostage Situation - One team has to rescue the hostages, the other team has to defend.
- Cold War - Fight for control over a nuclear warhead. The team that secures it, gets to blow it up.
- Realistic Mode - Skirmish with special rules. No HUD, longer reloads and weapon switches, less sprinting time, increased recoil, less health, no health regeneration, less explosive resistance, weapon jams, and no vehicles.
Multiplayer-wise, Downfall plays out like a hybrid of Call of Duty and Battlefield: running at a Call of Duty-styled-pace, but with the vastness and technological advanceness of Battlefield. Destruction is included, however is very minor. Vehicles, such as APCs, Helicopters and Jeeps have to be earned, CoD-style, but once the team in question has combined enough points to earn them, anyone on that team can use them. There is a huge amount of weapons to unlock, customize and generally kill people with, however elements such as recoil and reload times are slightly more realistic than in CoD or Battlefield. There are base classes to use if you're unimaginative, however players can create and customize their own classes as they wish. However, there are certain restictions (like not being able to use LMG's in conjunction with Shotguns). There are 4 main teams: US Marines, ISF, Rangers and IS-Shock (special forces of the ISF). Each is unique in their own way, however players can still use the same weapons, etc. that they normally would.
The maps are set in and around the North-East of England, mainly in urban-themed areas, however beaches, countrysides and even user-created maps can be made and good ones may be added to playlists. The multiplayer follows no sort of storyline, and is purely for fun, however the environments are based on the campaign.
Throwing in two new teams: Private Military Company and Renegade Militia. The former is a group of mercenaries hired by the US Government (because they are desperate), and the latter is a small, but deadly, radicalist group of ISF supporters.

You cannot unlock the ability to use Snipers or LMG's with an Assault Rifle, for that would be stupid.
