—Intense's In-Game Description

Gauntlet (Intense) is a venue that is featured in Def Jam Fight For NY and Def Jam Fight for NY: The Takeover.


Welcome to the octagon. There's not much room to move in here, so it's an all-out slugfest. Try to work on one side of the ring to give yourself some space, but most important, work your opponent into the fence and use tight combos to link moves with stuns and keep the rhythm going. You can use the door of the ring to smash your opponent's head if you can set him up with a grapple on it. Do not give him any breathing room. There is no crowd to interfere and no weapons to pummel your opponent with. It is just you and your offensive tools. Get out there and punish!
