5 modes of Play

Close Quarters Combat - Smaller maps whereby the missions from each team are to set detonations at strategic points and completely eliminate the opposing team. Play at your own risk as no respawn points exist until each scenario has completed!

Urban Ops - Providing only strategically placed vehicles, the real fighting in this mode takes place on the front lines with foot soldiers, snipers and man to man combatants! Medium and Large size maps make for perfect battlegrounds while the ultimate objective is to neutralize your enemy and minimize their claim to mapped territory!

Battle Group- Vast expansive maps lead way towards some of the most exciting battles yet! While players are certainly permitted to play on foot, the use of highly armored and finely tuned military vehicles will be the preferred method for players traversing the widespread maps in this mode. Take control of the map and eliminate opposing forces by land, by sea and by air!

Free For All - Free for All is a fast-paced, cutthroat death match where each soldier is his, or her, own army. In this mode, the one and only objective is to score more kills than every other player in the room!

Conquest - Conquest is a team-based battle where teams fight for control of a map. The more flags you capture, the faster you win. The action goes back and forth as every flag on the map has the potential to be captured. Close in on your enemy and wipe them out, or you may be surrounded and suffer the ultimate defeat.
