All Game Modes in Destruction AllStars

by Morgan Shaver

Back in November, a list of game modes for Destruction AllStars were revealed over on the PlayStation Blog. If you missed this, don’t worry, you’re not alone. November into January was a chaotic time for many. 

With the release of Destruction AllStars as of February 2, 2021 (and its availability through PS Plus) the question of what game modes are available have resurfaced.

To help catch you up on what you might have missed in the past in regards to game mode information, we’ve put together a quick feature listing all of the available game modes in Destruction AllStars.

All Game Modes in Destruction AllStars

As you dive into the wild world of Destruction AllStars, questions about each of the title’s different game modes are bound to crop up. To start, you can play Destruction AllStars solo, with your friends in multiplayer, and with AI teammates. 

When you’re just starting out, diving into the game’s “Training” mode is highly recommended as it’ll help show you the ropes before you dive into a real match against other players.

You can also try your hand at the game’s Challenge Series which allows you to face AI opponents and unlock player and character cosmetics.

For additional cosmetic opportunities, you can naturally accrue AllStar Coins (one of the game’s forms of currency) as you level up by earning XP from various game modes.

Note that there’s another form of currency, Destruction Points, that are microtransactions purchased in bundles using real money over on the PlayStation Store. 

With all of that out of the way, here are all of the game modes available in Destruction AllStars with added description text courtesy of the PlayStation Blog. 

Destruction AllStars – Game Modes



Training – “Visit the Training area, complete the tutorial and practice with any of our 16 AllStars.”


Challenge Series – “Play Genesis’ “One Small Step” challenge Series and unlock exclusive Character and Player Cosmetics through a curated series of challenging events against the AI.” 


Mayhem – “Mayhem plays like a classic deathmatch. Playable in solo and teams, deal damage and wreck as many opponents as you can in the time limit. The player with the highest score wins. It sounds familiar, but can you control the chaos by mastering the balance between vehicle and character action.”


Carnado – “Take what you learn in Mayhem and put it all on the line in Carnado. Playable in both solo and teams, it’s focused around risk and reward. Earn Gears (AllStars’ collectable in-game items) for damaging or wrecking competitors, which are automatically stored in your vehicle. Sacrifice your vehicle by driving into the Carnado to score points. Back on-foot, get a new vehicle or steal one from your opponents for a quick points boost. The more you wreck, the more Gears you earn.” 


Stockpile – “Stockpile is our take on capture and control. In this team based mode, wrecking or knocking out opponents will cause Gears to drop to the floor. Go on foot to collect the Gears and run through a gauntlet of vehicles to one of the three banks around the map. Stand on a bank to deposit Gears, and claim it for your team. This is a battle for bank ownership; the team with the most banks at the end of the game wins.”


Gridfall – “16 AllStars enter the arena, but only one will emerge victorious. In Gridfall, it’s about using all your skills to stay in the game as the arena falls away from beneath your wheels. Wreck your opponents off the edge of the map or find temporary safety in the platforms above. As players get wrecked or knocked out, they’ll trade a respawn to get back in the game. If you run out of respawns, you’re eliminated! The winner is the last AllStar standing. ”
