For those that have no idea what a Game Mode is, fear no more. A game mode is the mode that the game plays in. For instance, if the game mode is Traitor then there will be traitors on the station, if it is Wizard, then a Wizard will spawn. These are meant to give variety to the game. The game mode is determined randomly at the beginning of the round, based on the number of players on the server. The game mode can also be forced at round start by an admin, usually for a special round wherein the admin spawns/does something that would be obstructed by the game mode.
Antagonists being in charge of everyone's "fun" is a very sensitive topic, with valid arguments both for and against, so we encourage everyone to come read/participate in this page's Discussions.
"Secret" is a special mode that the server will run on 99% of the time. A random mode is picked, but only the antagonists (if any) get to know which mode it is, until the round ends.

|* Admins will sometimes force it so they can enact the special custom scenarios they thought of. Or just intervene to make the round interesting if it really goes on for too long, but don't keep your hopes up.
Modes currently on the server, though not enabled in secret. Admins may secretly force one of them before roundstart, or call a vote for them.
|Sandbox||Test your shoddy code. Ruin people's days.||0||Easy|
|Traitor||Some crew members got a free pass to ruin everyone else's day. Kinda rendered obsolete by AutoTraitor.||0||Medium|

|*Occasionally an admin will force a Meteor round, then remember a while later the reasons why it's been removed from Secret.

|Meme||"Kill yourself, do it" (More or less replaced by Borers)||Hard|
