Checkmate is a brand new gametype for IW4M.

Two teams, the assassins and the guardians, battle respectively to kill or defend the king. At the start of a game two players get randomly picked to be the king or first assassin. The assassins win the game by killing the king while the guardians and king win by surviving. The assassins strive to kill the king, they can get more allies by killing guardians as they turn into assassins when killed. The king on the other hand tries to stay alive and can turn assassins into guardians by killing them.

Guardians start with a pistol and with each kill they get a better weapon, the king has a few claymores, a shotgun and a pistol. The assassins wear snipers, the first picked assassin is stronger because of his semtex and stopping power perk.

Where to get the latest version?
I will post all versions here at ModDB, if you would to test beta releases take a look at the GitHub page and at the Releases page.

I'd say this mod is ok, but it's just a copy-paste from the CoD4 mod: Kill the King. You coul've just name it the same and give credits for the originals for the mod idea..

Hey The Reaper,
thanks for your feedback I'll consider this. But fact is that kill the king is a "copy-paste" of the Black Ops mod "Protect the king". So I'll credit the creators of that mod I guess.

Well, I've never heard of Protect the king, would you link me to it? I'm just asking because i am asking for Black Ops mods too.
