Q: What is Spectator Mode and how can I use it?
Answer: A host of a multiplayer game has the option to allow spectators into a game. This allows players to observe the game as a neutral third team that is unable to interact with the in-game action. Spectators can not affect the game, complete objectives or score points. Also, none of the text chat typed by a spectator can be seen by either team. If a host has spectator mode enabled, there will be a checkbox that can be checked to enter the game as a spectator. The host may also require a password for spectators.
While in spectator mode, a player can switch from “Free Look” to “Chase Cam” by pressing the “CTRL” key and either the “,” or “.” keys together. Once in Chase Mode, a spectator can cycle through players by pressing the “CTRL” key and either the “N” or “M” keys together.
