There are various types of game play matches in different maps. Deathmatch, Destruction, capture the flag, or custom modes (sniper only, pistol only, or knife only). Both teams must satisfy certain conditions, such as defusing a bomb, successful planting and detonation, or achieving a certain amount of kills.
There are two types of currencies: Cash and Points. Cash is based on real money and can be charged in exchange for a monetary payment, cell phone billing, or home phone billing and by bank transfer. Points can be earned from playing games. Points and cash can be spent at the in-game shop. Points are used for buying weapons. Cash enables the purchase of in-game boosts (i.e. +50% points) and special bonus items, along with special team-specific outfits. Cash and points can also be earned through participation in promotions.
