Ready or Not is a game released on December 2021 on Early Access developed by Void Interactive. Void Interactive made this game intending to appeal to a tactical shooter gamer market. Players have a more tactical approach in their gameplay where teamwork, communication, and intel collection matter.
Ready or Not appeals to this audience by introducing slow and realistic movement and strict gunplay. Moreover, players must care about recoil and rounds in the magazine, checking friendly fire, providing accurate intel to the team, and more. With an Industry where games like Ready or Not are almost extinct, it’s great to have a few developing companies showing some love to this audience.
One of the many game modes Ready or Not offers players is Bomb Threat. This game mode can be one of the most challenging ways to play Ready or Not as there is limited time to complete the mission. This article will cover what Ready or Not maps bomb threat can be played on, the best gear to use, and many insightful tips to complete these missions.
Overview of Bomb Threat Game Mode in Ready or Not
Bomb Threat offers players a more tense and challenging experience by adding a time limit of 3 to 5 minutes to defuse the bomb. This game can be challenging as players can no longer take their time safely clearing room by room. In this game, speed and precision are essential as players must rely even more on their senses to clear a space and find the bombs.
Players must also worry about hostiles that might or might not comply, so using lethal force is necessary. Another task in Bomb Threat is to rescue as many civilians as possible to get a high score.
Tips for Beating Bomb Threats in Ready or Not
This game mode is about time, so grabbing lighter armor to benefit movement speed is a good idea, but it will make players more vulnerable to gunshots. Moreover, players won’t have as much time as in other game modes to clear the room, so a good tip is to bring as many tactical grenades as possible to clear rooms quickly.
Bring weapons with good mobility and fit for CQC, such as the ARN-18, a powerful compact Assault Rifle, or a shotgun build to help neutralize enemies as quickly as possible.
SMGs aren’t great in this game, as other compact assault rifles can easily replace them while being more effective due to the higher caliber.
Bringing a shield can be helpful as players need to clear more rooms with less intel.

How to Play well with Bots
Bots can be challenging to play with, but we have assembled some great tips to help you beat the bomb threat game mode in Ready or Not.
Bang and Clear
Equip the bots with as many tactical grenades as possible so you can order them to throw them inside a room a clear it fast while you look for the bombs.
Bots Take Care Of Bots
Order your bots to restrain and report civilians and suspects while you search or defuse a bomb
A good idea is to use a ballistic shield loadout that can help you protect yourself from gunfire while the bots clear the room and you search for the bomb.
Solo Gameplay Tips
Ready or Not doesn’t currently offer a Solo mod. Thankfully there is an easy workaround to play solo; Players just need to order the bots to stay on the spawn, and they won’t interfere with anything on the mission.
Sunscreen And Bulletscreen Will Keep Your Face Soft And Healthy
As a solo player, you are more vulnerable when trying to defuse a bomb threat in Ready or Not. Therefore, make sure you bring a Ballistic Face Shield to protect your head from bullets. This will allow you to pop out and survey your foes more easily.
A Ballistic Shield To Watch Your Back
A Ballistic Shield (or the rescue shield in Ready or Not) is a tool that will slow you down while equipped, but while not in use, it will stop bullets coming from behind. This Shield can be very helpful while defusing the bomb, as you will be vulnerable.
Let There Be Light

Beating Bomb Threat in Multiplayer
Ready or Not does have multiplayer. The best way to play Ready or Not is by teaming up with friends or other like-minded individuals online. Executing complex takedowns is a lot of fun when done right. Yet, working with humans instead of bots presents its own set of challenges as well.
Communication Is Everything
Make sure you and your team communicate every piece of intel available to prevent casualties. This is good advice for all gameplay modes, not just bomb threat in Ready or Not.
Have assigned roles. For example:
- Player 1 is on searching and defusing tasks. This player can also be assigned to grab evidence and restrain enemies and civilians.
- Player 2 is a riot shield providing cover to player 1
- Player 3 is always on the rear, watching back
- Player 4 is on constant offense tasks clearing rooms and enemies.
