A Team Challenge is a shooting challenge held during the first half of every episode of Top Shot. During the Team Challenge, contestants compete as teams (either Blue Team or Red Team). The team that wins the challenge gains immunity and is safe from elimination. The team that loses, must go to the Nomination Range to nominate two of its members for an Elimination Challenge.
Before the Team Challenge, each team has a Practice Session using the weapon that will be featured in the Team Challenge. An expert in said weapon trains each team in its use and how to apply it to the Team Challenge.
