Of Guards and Thieves Wiki
Advertisement

In this mode, the guards have to defend the Big Brain located in ONE of the six positions on the map for the entire duration of the round (5 min). The location of the brain will be communicated to the guards at the beginning of the round. As a guard, you usually have the advantage since you can attack the zombies at long range with your guns. However, to balance the game, guards have a longer respawn time (15 sec) which can make you vulnerable if the brain is being eaten. The guards have to strategize and hold key locations of the map to prevent zombies from reaching the Big Brain.

In contrast, zombies have to find the Big Brain first as they do not know its location; reach the brain, break its protection and then eat it. Zombies have a fast respawn time (5 sec) and are only proficient in short range attacks. Zombies do not have guns and they do not have any medium/long ranged attack available. Strategize with your teammate for an all-in attack or attack in groups to distract the guards.

The match lasts five minutes in which the two teams will face each other to win the game.

    • Beware of sneaky guards who hide in bushes and/or near corners! In general, take great care when proceeding in a lighted room/area. You have nothing to worry about in the dark.
