Similar to Elimination mode, there is a pre-set amount of lives, with the aim being the last player standing with at least one life, or the most lives left within confines of a specified time limit. However, in Vampire mode, the player has a certain amount of 'blood', depicted by a red gauge in the upper area of the screen. Since it is constantly diminishing, the gauge must be replenished, or else a life will be lost. The bar can be kept at a sustainable level by killing the opponents.
The speed at which the gauge depletes is referred to as "bloodlust", which can be set to a low, medium, or high speed. When bloodlust is set to low, the blood goes down at a comparitively slow rate; when high the player needs to kill at a blistering pace in order to survive.
Games and Unlocks Edit
Vampire mode is only available in TimeSplitters 2 and TimeSplitters Future Perfect. In TimeSplitters Future Perfect, Vampire is available from the start, whilst TimeSplitters 2 requires you to complete the Demolition Derby arcade challenge in order to unlock the said game mode.
