Playing the Game

Once inside, leave a comment listing either your city and state, or simply your state. Ex: Phoenix, Arizona or Arizona. You are free to leave other comments, such as communication with teammates and strategy details, but the only comments worth points are those with a location.

NOTE: You may only do this once per month, and it must the state you live in.

At the end of the day, any new submissions will be counted towards your state. The state on the map will then change to either blue or red, depending on which faction you claimed it from.

The total number of S.H.I.E.L.D. and HYDRA agents for the month will be listed at all times.

If a state is claimed by the other faction, you may reclaim it by recruiting friends to your cause! For example, if one HYDRA agent claimed Phoenix, Arizona, the state would become red. However, and you and another S.H.I.E.L.D. agent both list a city in Arizona, there would then be 2 S.H.I.E.L.D. agents in the state, and it will turn blue.

NOTE: There must be at least one more agent of a faction than the other in order to reclaim a state.

If you have been recruited by another agent, reply that agent's original comment so that you both can earn extra points!


At the end of the month, everything is scored.

Agents = 1 point

States = 10 points

Whichever faction wins for the month gets to vote on an Infinity Stone that their faction can use to help them in the Secret War.

The winning team for the month will get Face Front Tokens to use in the Token Shop, exclusive Avatars for Face Front, and more!

Individual agents that recruit other agents to the cause will receive bonus rewards.

VS Mode

At certain points in the month, VS mode will go up for 24 hours. During this mode, the state for each faction with the fewest number of agents defending it will be contested.

To participate, you must go into the VS War Zone when it appears and comment with either Attack or Defend. You may only comment once.

If the state being contested is from your faction, you must comment Defend to maintain your hold over it. If the the state belongs to the other faction, you must comment Attack to seize it from your opponent.

Assist bonuses from Marvel heroes or villains will be applied to this mode. Voting on an Assist will occur on Face Front Twitter and Facebook pages.

After 24 hours, if more agents for either faction showed up to attack or defend, your faction will either maintain the state, capture it, or lose it to the other faction.

NOTE: Keep an eye on Face Front's social media and Secret Wars updates to figure out when VS Mode is taking place for the month.
