The All-New King of the Battleground Match

King of the Battleground is an all-new online last-man-standing challenge between players around the world.

This is a never-ending Royal Rumble game: four players start in the ring while four other superstars wait outside to enter, challenging you to run the gauntlet and defeat them all.

Eliminate your opponents by throwing them out of the ring. Any Superstar who leaves the ring is automatically eliminated.

New incoming Superstars wait their turn outside the ring. When anyone is eliminated, the Superstar who has been waiting the longest enters the ring, while a new player is match-made into that 8th spot and waits their turn.

The longer you last, the better the rewards will be, so stay in the ring as long as you can! There are Leaderboards that show your survival time records and how many people you eliminated.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds Match Types Details

One-on-One Match

The standard 1 vs.1 match. The match is won when a Superstar pins their opponent for the count of 3 inside the ring, or forces a submission.

If a Superstar exits the ring, a count-out timer appears. If a Superstar is outside the ring when the count-out of 10 seconds ends, they will lose the match.

Tag Team Match

A 2 vs. 2 match. Only one member from each team can be inside the ring at a time: the other team member must wait on the apron until they are tagged-in.

The active member can tag their partner to switch places. Inactive team members can stay outside the ring for an unlimited time: there is no count-out for the inactive team members.

The inactive team members can step into the ring for a few seconds, but must then return to the apron.

The pin or submission must be executed inside the ring and only be the active team member. The first team to execute a pin or submission wins the match.

Tornado Tag Team Match

A 2 vs. 2 match, but all 4 competitors are active at the same time.

A pin or submission can be executed by any team member. The first team to execute a pin or submission inside the ring wins the match.

If a Superstar exits the ring, a count-out timer appears. If a Superstar is outside the ring when the count out ends, their team is disqualified.

Steel Cage Matches in WWE 2K Battlegrounds have a unique mechanic: Superstars must fill their Money Bar by collecting the money that appears hanging from the cage.

When the Money Bar is full, the Superstar can try to escape over the top of the cage. However, beware of the electrified cage!

The first Superstar to escape is the winner! In Tag Team matches, the escape of just one of the two team members is enough to win the match.
