This article refers to Duel in Shadow Fight 3. For other uses, see Duel (disambiguation).

Duel is an online game mode in Shadow Fight 3, unlocked upon completing Old Friend main quest. Players fight AI controlled opponents which carry the same statistics and equipment as other players of the game. If successful, they are awarded with coins; winning at least 4 rounds will reward them with chest.

It is one of the methods for obtaining or upgrading gear along with the store, Booster Packs and drops from defeating opponents.


Each duel has a maximum of three rounds, and the player must win two in order to be victorious. Each round can last a maximum of 99 seconds and the players must defeat their opponent within this time limit or lose the round.

Players can enter duels any time from the main menu screen. The game will then search for an opponent and once the match is made, the fight will start. The matchmaking is determined by the duel ratings, therefore opponents will usually have similar power and duel ratings as the player.

Winning a duel match will rewards the players with some gold coins, for a maximum of 10 fights per day. The higher the player's Dan, the more coins they can earn from a single duel. Once they have win 4 rounds, they will also receive a chest, which can contain either equipment, special moves, perks, or a currency. The player's duel rating will also go up.

Losing a duel will result in a decrease in their rating.


All players start at Dan 1. By accumulating enough rating points, the player's Dan will increase. A player with higher Dan has a better chance to receive a chest with higher rarity, and they will earns more valuable rewards at the end of a season. Currently, the highest attainable Dan is 8. At the end of a season, players will be rewarded with a Dan pack, containing a small amount of gems and some cards of random rarity. Each season lasts for 7 days.

Below are the minimum required rating points to be assigned to a Dan, their respective coin rewards, and the content of their respective Dan packs.

League and SeasonEdit

Leagues are an activity for experienced players, which allow them to earn rewards at the end of a season. Currently there are five obtainable league: Warrior, Hero, Champion, Master and Legend. Once a player reaches Dan 8, they can graduate to leagues by winning more duels. The higher their league, the better the rewards would be at the end of the season. League rankings only remain till the end of the current season, after which they are reset to "Warrior" if they were higher.

Each season lasts for 7 days, and the rewards are determined by the player's league at the end of a season. After the reward has been claimed, the players' rating is recalculated as a new season begins (this rule is not applicable to Dans). Players are rewarded with a type of League pack depending on their league rank. League packs contain gems and several cards of different rarity.
