Duo Showdown is similar to regular Showdown except that you have a teammate battling with you. When a power cube is gained from a box, it is shared between the two of you, meaning that if you gain 1 power cube, your teammate gains 1 power cube as well. There are four other pairs of Brawlers. Your goal is to take them out and be the last team standing. If your teammate dies, they will have a 15 second timer until they respawn again. Fallen teammates do not carry the power cube that they previously had before death, so all respawned teammates start at 0 power cubes. If both you and your teammate are defeated at the same time before one of you can respawn, the game is over for you.
- Brawlers like Colt, Crow, and Dynamike can be useful to Duo Showdown because of their expertise in regular Showdown.
- Bo: While Bo isn't the most useful attacker, with his Star Power, he can be extremely advantageous to your teammate as he can see into the bushes from a faraway distance.
- Even though you can respawn in this game mode, remember to stick with your teammate. Don't abandon them and try to conquer opponents by yourself - one way or another, you're going to get outmatched pretty quickly. Splitting up could very likely get you both defeated.
