Match Game is an activity modifier.
Match Game pushes players to use weapons and abilities of a specific element in order to damage an enemy's elemental shield. For example, a Fallen Captain's Arc shield will take significantly less damage from other elements, such as Solar or Void, when Match Game is active. In this case, Arc weapons and abilities should be used to break the Captain's shield.
Match Game appears on Legend difficulty and higher.

- Nightmare Hunts (Legend and Master)
- Empire Hunts (Legend and Master)

Activities where Match Game will be active will usually indicate which elemental shield types will appear through a modifier icon. Equipment will usually be locked for these activities, so players should prepare a loadout to deal with the shield elements that will be encountered.
The Adaptive Munitions perk can allow a weapon to deal increased damage to non-matching shield types.
In some activities where Match Game is active, a Burn modifier may also appear, increasing the damage dealt and taken from a specific element. It is possible to take advantage of this damage increase to break enemy shields with a non-matching element through brute force. Although it will take longer, this can be a viable option if the specific type of elemental shield is less common in the activity than others.
