Description[edit]

ARM Getter can be selected by choosing "Get ARMS" on the main menu. It requires Token.svg to play, which are earned by playing other game modes. The more Token.svg the player spends, the longer they will be able to play.

The mode operates similarly to Skillshot, with targets appearing in random positions for the player to destroy. However, whenever a new wave of targets appears, there is also a chance that an Item Drone carrying a box will appear behind the third row of targets, flying from one side of the range to the other. Hitting this drone will cause it to drop the box, awarding the player with one randomly selected ARM for the fighter whose emblem is shown in the lower-right corner of the box. Note that the first box that appears will always contain an ARM for the fighter the player is currently using. Clocks may also appear on a rarer basis, and, when hit, they will add an additional 5 seconds to the timer (10 seconds when playing with a long timer).

Getting a higher score by smashing more targets will increase the chances of boxes appearing.[1] As a result, players are encouraged to curve their ARMS well to obtain the largest combo of targets possible.

When the game ends, the player is shown all the ARMS they unlocked and offered the opportunity to change which ARMS are assigned to each Fighter, similar to the Set ARMS mode. If the player unlocks an ARM they already own, that ARM will be upgraded to a "Plus ARM" (Indicated by a blue + sign beside its name), an upgraded version that does 10 more damage than its standard counterpart, as well as another bonus depending on its weight class. Plus ARMS can be used in any mode, even in Ranked Matches. Once a player has earned the plus variant of a certain ARM, that ARM will no longer appear in the ARM Getter.

Trivia[edit]

  • The player does not get to select their ARMS in the ARM Getter itself; they will always be required to use two Toasters.
  • The player cannot grab in the ARM Getter, presumably because there are no enemy fighters to grab.
  • Barq will not appear in the ARM Getter when playing as Byte.
