- "The challenges are not only going to be rigorous, they'll be downright torturous. In Season Three, the gloves are coming off."
- ―Colby Donaldson[src]
So far, the rules of Season Three are unknown, but it is highly likely that each contestant will be assigned to a team and compete in Elimination Challenges to stay in the competition.
- "Every single marksman that shows up on Season Three has something to prove."
- ―Colby Donaldson[src]
