  • What is ricochet?

  • Ricochet is a Half-life mod where you shoot various types of discs at your opponent(s). Powerups, which give different types of powerful disc arrangements, are available in some of the maps. There are two official game modes, arena and deathmatch. However the VadaVaka community has developed/improved two more game modes, team arena and team deathmatch.

  • Why do I have to wait?

  • You have to wait in queue to play in arena mode because people are matched up with their new opponents after all arena matches are finished. Winners are matched up with other winners, losers are matched up with other losers. The queue is the process which you wait your turn to play only in arena mode.
