Think of Team Vanquish – known in most circles as Team Deathmatch – as your “getting started” mode for Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. It’s great for getting a feel for the game or the occasional quick play session, but you quickly outgrow it. You’ll want to use it primarily as a quick way to unlock the level 2/3 skills for each class, since the narrowed, no-objective focus and smaller maps make it easier to complete those first, relatively simple challenges.
For total newcomers to competitive multiplayer gaming, here’s how it works: two teams of 12 Zombies and Plants apiece face off against one another, with the first team to reach 50 Vanquishes (Garden Warfare‘s word for “kills”) being named the winner. There’s no time limit; only the kills matter. This is a mode where everyone should be reviving downed friendlies. Healers can do it faster than anyone else on their teams, but in a mode where every kill counts toward a win, bringing comrades back to life makes a big difference. When you’re the one who’s down, don’t immediately respawn; wait and see if someone will bring you back. And if you’re the one doing the reviving, know that you can still fire your primary weapon while you doing that… so be sure to do so!
This is as uncomplicated as things get. There are two Team Vanquish variants in Garden Warfare. One is found in the Welcome Mat playlist, which is meant for beginners. The worse you play, the more health you have each time you spawn in. Isn’t that nice? There’s also a Classic Team Vanquish option, which eliminates all class-specific customizations and upgrades.
