SYNCED Gameplay modes
There are currently two game modes available in SYNCED: Off-planet.
The PvE or Player Versus Environment game mode is where the players will have to fight against CPU-controlled enemies. It is similar to a campaign mode. The players must embark on a journey deep into the surge-infected territory.
The surge refers to the takeover of the world by the Nanos. There is a Tyrant Class Nano in the middle of each surge-infected area. The main objective of this mode is to fight against enemy Nanos and kill the Tyrant Class Nano.
The PvP or the Player Versus Player game mode requires the players to fight against other players in the server and the AI enemies simultaneously. Players will have to select one of the six runners available and start on their journey.
The main objective of this game mode is to collect as much Nerva as the players can. In this game mode, the players can play with a team of three or solo. The team that collects the most Nerva during a specific time will be the winner.
Since the players have to compete against each other to collect Nerva, they can also fight among each other and take Nervas collected by their enemies after they have successfully defeated them. This game mode works similarly to the battle royale but cannot be fully termed a battle royale. The players will have three respawn during the whole match.
Master the runner which suits your playstyle
There are six different runners available in SYNCED for the players to choose from. Each of the runners has unique abilities and perks. These make them suitable for different types of playstyles.

So it is important to select the runner which suits your gameplay the most. The six runners are:

Select your companion
The players or runners can also bring companions with them on the battlefield. The players will have to sync with the Nanos to use four companions in the game. Once a nano is defeated, it can be synced by the runner with a special thing attached to their arm.
After they are synced, the Nanos will turn into companion Nanos and help the runners in their battle. The four types of Nanos are:
