Multiplayer for Necromunda Underhive Wars will allow you to create casual bouts (either in matchmaking or custom matching) that act as practice, consequence-free battles.
There are two types of Multiplayer, The Contest and Exhibition modes. Both allow you to play 1v1, 2v2, Free-for-All and Custom scenarios against other players, while presenting different rewards and consequences.

Exhibition matches will not impact your Gang beyond the scenario, but will offer no specific rewards to the winner(s).
Once you’re confident enough in your Gang’s abilities, and your own skills as a commander, you’ll naturally want to head to the infamous Contest grounds. This high-stakes multiplayer mode will offer the same customisable settings as Exhibition, but with more...permanent repercussions.
At the end of every Contest match, the winning Team(s) will be recompensed with a Reward Casket. All items looted from the environment by your Fighters over the course of the battle will also be yours to keep - including any equipment stolen from fallen enemies!
The flipside is this: negative consequences will also carry over, meaning Contest matches always involve a possibility of losing gear and receiving injuries, which might sometimes even lead to death for unlucky Fighters.
