Portions of the following article were posted at Arwingpedia on 17:39, July 8, 2010. It has since been modified for a higher level of quality.
In Star Fox Assault, there are eight different battle modes.
- Main Rules is the default set of rules. There are no restrictions depending on the settings chosen, so by default, all weapons, vehicles, and stages are available.
- Sniper Showdown is a mode for pilots only, which restricts the use of regular weapons to the Sniper Rifle, but the weapon has unlimited ammunition.
- Homing Launcher Clash is a pilots-only mode that disables the use of regular weapons other than the Homing Launcher, but the weapon has unlimited ammunition.
- Missile Launcher Bout is a pilots-only mode that disables all use of regular weapons other than the Missile Launcher, but provides unlimited ammunition for them.
- Booster Packs Brawl is simliar to the Main Rules mode, the only difference is that players cannot use vehicles. All players start the match wearing a Booster Pack, which allows characters to hover in midair. Characters with a high Jump ability travel farther. All weapons are available in this mode.
- Booster Packs Launcher Tilt is a combination of the Homing Launcher Clash and Booster Packs Brawl modes. It is a pilots-only mode that utilizes Booster Packs and disables use of standard weapons other than the Homing Launcher, which have unlimited ammunition in this mode.
- Sure-Shot Scuffle is a mode that similar to Main Rules, but instead all weapons deliver one-hit knock-outs. There are no restrictions depending on the settings, and all weapons, vehicles, and stages are available by default.
- Crown Capture is another mode similar to Main Rules. The objective is to capture the crown, and keep it until time runs out. If a player is defeated while holding the crown, the opponent who defeated that player receives it. The time limit decreases every time a player holding the crown is defeated. The maximum time, at the beginning of the battle, is 2:00 minutes, while the minimum is 0:15 seconds.
